Master of Science in Digital Health Informatics

Digital Health Informatics

The MS in Digital Health Informatics (formerly known as the MS Health Informatics) program prepares students for careers in the exciting world of digital healthcare, including mobile health (mHealth), digital therapeutics, telehealth, and application of advanced analytics to healthcare.

Program Highlights

  • Our program now includes courses that develop student skills in conceptualizing and designing digital health solutions, health care solutions assessment and fundraising, programming and biomedical data analysis and visualization, machine learning, nonlinear signal analysis, and advanced statistical methods. 
  • We offer domain-specific courses in consumer informatics and global health, which attracts professionals in leadership positions within the healthcare ecosystem creating an interprofessional environment.
  • All students interact in core courses that cover the complexities of health data ontologies, security and privacy of health data, clinical decision support systems, electronic medical records (EMRs) interoperability and user-centered design (UCD).
  • Opportunities for digital health entrepreneurship incubation are also offered within the healthcare ecosystem in Silicon Valley and beyond. 

Health Informatics uses mathematical, scientific, technological, heuristic and cognitive methods for modeling and solving complex and heterogeneous problems. Students proceeding through the Masters of Science Digital Health Informatics (MS DHI) program will develop an understanding of the ways in which information (meaningful data) is converted into knowledge (justified belief) and be able to develop theories that further biomedical research and improve healthcare delivery systems.
