As hospitals work to implement electronic health records by the January 2014 deadline for U.S. Healthcare Reform teams of trained health informatics professionals are highly in-demand. Healthcare facilities are looking for applicants who understand both data systems and medical policies.
Recognizing the growing importance of health informatics training for today’s healthcare professionals, USF Health provides 100% online graduate health informatics programs.
“Legislation specific to electronic healthcare records and the Affordable Care Act has caused an overwhelming need for trained professionals in the health informatics discipline,” said Adrian Marrullier, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Office of the Bisk Education. “At this pivotal time in U.S. history, USF Health’s Morsani College of Medicine has established itself as a leader in health informatics education through its innovative curriculum and commitment to academic excellence.”
USF Health’s Morsani College of Medicine runs two online instructor-led graduate programs specifically designed to prepare students for the future of health informatics: the Graduate Certificate in Health Informatics and the Master of Science in Health Informatics. Each of these courses can be completed entirely online, using Bisk Education-powered video lectures and interactive online tools, live chat rooms and discussion boards.
