Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Certificate

Healthcare Revolutionized by Data

The healthcare industry will produce 2.3 trillion gigabytes of nonstructured data in 2020 alone by some estimates, a figure that increases 48% each year. This flood of data, along with a pressing need to address industry inefficiencies, poises the healthcare industry for a quantum leap in digital Innovation.

This exploding Health Informatics sector needs professionals of many kinds to support, implement, assess, teach, and research AI healthcare solutions. The field is young and opportunities are plentiful and well-compensated.

New software solutions and cutting-edge research are being developed and implemented now to overcome these challenges, and there is ample room and immediate need for novel ideas and innovation.

The Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare certificate program can be completed entirely online.
