Emerging Technologies in Health/Medical Informatics

In today’s dynamic healthcare IT environment, emerging technologies represent a critical and exciting field of study. Advances in technologies across all aspects of healthcare promise to make dramatic impacts in terms of the efficiency and efficacy of care with major implications for clinical quality and cost. This course introduces students to a number of emerging classes of healthcare information technologies. The course also considers the unique challenges that the healthcare industry presents in terms of planning, implementation, and adoption of new technologies.
