The health care environment and the management of health care data have been greatly influenced by the field of informatics and technologic advancements, such as the Electronic Health Record (EHR). As a result, federal, state, and regional projections show a real need for professionals with advanced knowledge and training in the principles of health informatics and information management.  

The graduate degree in health informatics and information management (MS HIIM) is a transdisciplinary academic program at the intersection of the disciplines of computer and information science and technology, health services administration and management, and more importantly the dynamics between the two. It is designed to prepare individuals to be informaticians as well as information management professionals who can work proficiently with clinicians and health services administrators in order to develop clear and effective health information strategies for health care organizations.
