Program Overview

The Health Informatics program at MENA College of Management prepares students to use their unique qualifications to influence positive patient outcomes, effective and safe use of innovative technologies, and financial stewardship.


It links information technology, communications, and healthcare to improve the quality and safety of patient care.


Until a few years ago, all clinical care and documentation were paper-based. Now, with clinical documentation that enables the secure electronic exchange of patient data, healthcare providers can reduce waiting times, improve interdisciplinary collaboration, and minimize errors. Also, since we now have a database for each patient, we can analyze aggregated clinical data to help us understand what is happening to large groups of patients and identify trends in the health status of the population.


With the data available electronically and organized into accessible databases, we now can explore data on a scale that we never imagined before. This is likely to lead to innovation in drug discovery and clinical outcome monitoring for different diseases, procedures, or devices.
