The health informatics and information management minor provides students with an introduction to the field of health informatics and information management. Students minoring in health informatics and information management will gain knowledge of legal, administrative, regulatory requirements, and use of health data. Health informatics, clinical and health information technologies, data management, and health care quality will also be explored.
The minor is open to all Samford University students and is a compliment to any undergraduate major. Students planning to pursue graduate degrees in health informatics, healthcare administration, public health, nutrition, social work, business, and law will have a unique understanding of the role of health data in patient care, improving health outcomes, and medico-legal situations.
