Health Administration/Health Informatics MHA/MHI

The dual degree in Medical Health Informatics and Health Administration allows students to complete both degrees in a shorter time frame, by allowing double counting of some courses.  It's a great option for anyone seeking advancement in the health fields.

The Masters in Health Administration program at Saint Joseph’s University prepares future healthcare administrators to envision and lead positive change, locally, nationally and internationally. Through a set of core competencies acquired through active-learning, experiential and interpersonal learning opportunities, the program provides the skills and knowledge to optimally prepare our students to be successful health managers, with a lifelong commitment to learning, respect for diversity, ethical decision-making, and social justice.

The Health Informatics program prepares students to implement and utilize information technology to support any healthcare organization. Our students are guided by a philosophy of inquiry, insight, and innovation. Students will be challenged to think boldly and to seek out and answer difficult questions using healthcare data. The learning environment will prepare students for the challenges of a professional career in a healthcare setting. The program will help students to develop the competencies and acquire the practical tools to succeed in today’s digital healthcare environment.

The M.S. in Health Informatics (MSHI) is an innovative 33 credit hour applied graduate degree program that addresses the intersection of healthcare and information technology to develop efficient systems and processes. Students are challenged to analyze health data across the continuum of healthcare delivery to improve patient care and advance individual and population health outcomes. The MSHI is designed for physicians, nurses, therapists, and information technology and health information technology professionals. The degree is also well suited for individuals with no prior healthcare or information technology experience. The MSHI program offers the ability for students to gain applied experience with clinical information technology systems. Students will gain over 50 hours of hands-on experience using clinical grade informatics technology in an educational setting.
