Managing Information Technology in Healthcare: This class will cover a wide range of information systems in healthcare, and best practices in their management. The United States is increasingly dependent on the Healthcare industry to provide accessible, immediate and relevant care to those who require medical and health-issue attention. The Healthcare environment changes rapidly and organizational stakeholders need to be actively involved across many dimensions of process and service delivery. History and experience informs us that private and public Healthcare programs and organizations are heavily affected by increasing regulation and the cost of providing care to patients. An underlying component of all of these factors is the manner in which Health Information Systems work with health-oriented processes and operations. There are critical components in Healthcare Information Technology that Healthcare professionals, IT Healthcare professionals and IT professionals in general should know in order to understand this industry and help to improve the professions.
