The 36-credit-hour graduate program in Healthcare Informatics at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology provides unique educational opportunities in this emerging specialty area for experienced clinicians (physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants) and clinically oriented healthcare administrators. 


Many graduate programs miss or short change perhaps the most important skill set for this new kind of practitioner: the translational, communications and interpersonal skills that make the difference between success and failure during selection, implementation, and optimization of healthcare IT systems. 

We offer a master degree in Healthcare Informatics at the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. What makes our program unique is familiarization with critical skills in change management, knowledge management, project management, organizational psychology, generational differences, human-machine interfaces, and optimization tools such as Lean and Agile.
