Biomedical informatics combines information technology, data science and knowledge for improvement in patient health care. The program educates undergraduate students in the informatics knowledge and skills that are so important in today's health care industry.
The program enables its graduates to improve the quality of patient health care and reduce the cost of it by consolidating patient health history and interventions across hospitals and clinics, providing the right information about patient health to clinicians, and reducing clinical errors and waste. Graduates are able to minimize the number of patient hospital visits by managing and monitoring a patient's clinical condition at home, and they are able to shorten hospital stays and improve the patient hospital experience by providing the patient with faster access to resources.
Graduates are able to evaluate a patient's condition; make an early detection of disease; support the clinician in making a better, more precise diagnosis and prognosis; plan a treatment for the patient's disease; and track disease progression.
