The University of Kansas Center for Health Informatics (KU-CHI) is an interprofessional center of excellence designed to advance health informatics through knowledge, integration, research and empowerment of faculty and students in the expanding field of applied clinical informatics.
Health Informatics is defined generally as understanding the meaning, relationships and properties of health care information as a basis for healthcare knowledge discovery, information retrieval, storage and dissemination for purposes of supporting the process and evaluation of health care of the public.
KU's master's degree in health informatics prepares graduates to integrate health, social-behavioral and informatics knowledge to improve health and well-being of individuals and communities.
Our program prepares graduates for entry- and mid-level positions in hospitals or clinics, electronic health record (EHR) companies, public health organizations and other organizations specializing in knowledge management.
Our graduates also have the skills required to enter the growing field of health information exchange, which includes regional health information organizations and the emerging specialization in personal health records.
On average, students complete the degree in 2 to 3 years. Most students are working professionals who complete the program through part-time enrollment.
Professional progress isn't on hold until after graduation, Our graduates report positive professional outcomes during the program, too. In a survey, nearly half of our graduates (45%) said they had a promotion, salary increase or career move during the program. After graduation, that number increased to 77%.
