The demand for skilled Health Informatics specialists continues to climb. Health Informatics (HI) is the science that defines how health information is captured, analyzed, transmitted and managed. It focuses on information systems, informatics principles and information technology as applied to the continuum of health care delivery.

Find out if this career field is right for you at a FREE online open house Wednesday, June 13, at noon Eastern (11 am Central). Guest speakers include David Baldwin, Chief Information Officer, Robinson Memorial Hospital, who will discuss the health informatics environment in his organization, and Kent State Health Informatics professor Michael Bice, who will present strategies for success in the Master of Science and certificate programs.

You'll also find out how to apply for one of the new $5,000 Health Informatics Leadership Fund Scholarships, available in Fall 2012.
