Apply for the HISM Minor!

Students with health-related disciplines or and interest in healthcare can benefit from a Health Information Systems Management (HISM) Minor.

The objective of the HISM minor is to teach pertinent, up-to-date health information systems knowledge to students who will take on responsibilities using information systems to manage medical practice and/or making clinical decisions to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery.

While graduates of this program will become more proficient in healthcare information technology, the program does not intend to produce electronic medical record (EMR) or electronic health record (EHR) coders: rather the minor program will increase the marketability of students in their respective career tracks.

Strengths of the HISM Minor Program

The HISM minor program provides rigorous coverage and training in project management and healthcare data communications. These strengths are highly desirable in today’s healthcare professions.

Special Features of the HISM Program

By taking the elective courses students can choose to learn data-driven decision support systems, which are highly relevant to clinical decision making and care planning. Students may also choose to gain deeper exposure to IT management that is essential to practice management.

Length of the HISM Program

The HISM minor program will typically take two years to complete. However, students carrying HP 250 or IS 220 credits into the program may fast-track through the minor.

Learn more about the duration of the HISM program and classes through the Academic Catalog.
