The HCI track focuses on applying data to solve questions that impact individual patients, populations of patients, and health care delivery systems. HCI professionals work in an interdis­ciplinary environment that integrates computer science, knowledge management, and health care.

Health Care Analytics (HCA) professionals understand health care delivery from the bedside to the board room, and utilize advanced analytics tools combined with programming skills to design unique solutions to solving health care problems. The HCA track teaches students to employ the skills of a data scientist, within the context of the health care discipline.
