Industry Overview

Health Care Informatics and HealthCare Data Analytics

The data revolution is transforming health care. Ongoing innovations include the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, cloud computing, analytics, and more to improve the quality of care and to deliver better outcomes for health organizations, clinicians, and — most important — patients.

The evolving, increasingly high-tech health care landscape is also creating exciting new career paths for nurses, physicians, clinical care providers and health information management professionals, as well as for professionals from outside the health care industry who are looking to transition into an exciting new career with significant opportunity for growth.

Success Stories

The faculty for all my classes were excellent and engaged spectacularly with not just me but all my colleagues online. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to solidify their career in Healthcare IT and to become more versed in applying the skills they have already to enhance healthcare staff skills, organizational health technology, and become a more valuable asset for their teams.

Here at the University of San Diego, I had the opportunity to grown not only as a student but as a Professional. I chose the University of San Diego because it’s an amazing institution with so much to offer its students. The faculty is always looking up for us and helping us in any aspect. I felt encouraged and motivated by their faculty.

Throughout my 10 plus years in the military. I have learned that having pride in what you do, and commitment to the people you work with are what make great memories and a forever sense of family connection. Not only does the University of San Diego epitomize these values, but the academic team represents them in everything they do. During my time in the program, I experienced staff who placed their students first and apply real world practices for the best learning environment. The staff does whatever it takes to align their vision with the student’s visions and goals on a continuous basis.
