MNGT3334 Healthcare MIS

Course Description

The Healthcare Management Information Systems (HMIS) is motivated by a dire need for executives, managers, and professionally trained students who must possess the knowledge and skills that will result in effective planning, design, management, execution, and use of various information systems resources. The HMIS course focuses on training future healthcare leaders, administrators, and managers to go beyond just acquiring the expertise in conceptualizing and defining the precise information they need. In addition, specifically health executives and managers should also be able to plan strategically and build the appropriate healthcare management information technology infrastructure and understand the implementation challenges to transform the way information is used and shared within and outside of their organizations.

This is an introduction to the organizational and managerial foundations of clinical information systems. The class engages the role of information systems to enhance healthcare, patient processing, medical delivery systems, while emphasizing decision-making in a medical/healthcare environment.
