Acquire Skills to Innovate Modern Healthcare

Artificial intelligence is driving innovation and transforming modern medicine, using vast digital health datasets to improve health care operations, safety, and delivery. It provides tools for enhancing the analysis, design, implementation, and evaluation of information and communication systems. These improvements enhance individual and population health outcomes, improve patient care, and strengthen clinician-patient relationships. Professionals in this field are employed by hospitals, clinics, private practices, corporations, government units, and insurance companies. 

This certificate, developed by the Department of Applied Computing’s MS in Health Informatics, was developed to provide current Michigan Tech graduate students and clinical and information technology professionals with the tools to reinvent health care.
