Course Description

The purpose of this course is to provide a health care industry context for information systems as an important element for student work in
systems design and evaluation. Specifically, I hope to:

  • Provide an overview of issues and trends which will shape the need for and structures of information systems within health care:demographic, epidemiological, social and technologic
  • Identity and explore key topics in health care information systems: background, issues, examples, implications for future development
