Three courses to educate and train students with industry and technical skills needed to succeed in the healthcare IT industry. The courses will enable students to think radically about instrumented, interconnected and intelligent solutions for healthcare. The first course introduces health informatics. The second course focuses on advanced topics, namely, enterprise health analytics and health information exchange. The third course trains students with business and IT skills required to develop real-world health IT solutions through mini-projects with hospitals in Kansas City. The courses are designed to provide a smooth fusion of theory and practice in health informatics.
