What Is Health Informatics?

Health Informatics

Connecting people, technology, and data to improve the safety and quality of patient care directly impacting the well-being of the healthcare industry.

Achieving Better Health Outcomes with Technology

Healthcare systems face a core challenge in delivering a comprehensive system transformation – data normalization.

Due to federal and state incentives around implementing electronic health records (EHRs), health systems have become proficient at collecting and storing patient data. The success of these health systems acquiring patient data has resulted in an industry challenge: massive amounts of data living unused in storage. As providers move towards improving safety and quality of patient care, relying on analyzing all parts of this data proactively and effectively remains crucial. As a result, the demand for skilled health informatics professionals to support this growth continues to accelerate.


Healthcare roles and occupations are expected to expand faster than any other industry. With the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimating a 20% career growth for professionals specializing in health informatics. Providing stable opportunities and promise for a valuable career.
