THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE
Master of Science in Health Care ANALYTICS & INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (MSHCA)
At nearly 20% of the economy, the health care system needs innovations that will improve the quality of care and reduce costs, while simultaneously improving the patient experience. At Heinz College, we believe that analytics and IT play a major role in accomplishing those outcomes and revolutionizing the field of health care.
Heinz College is the #1 graduate school for analytics education and IT management. Students in our new Master of Science in Health Care Analytics & Information Technology (MSHCA) program learn how to convert raw data into actionable solutions for complex problems facing the health care system and medical firms.
Big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data mining are more than buzz words at Carnegie Mellon University. Many of these techniques were born here, and our curriculum targets these technologies to the sprawling and evolving health care landscape, giving you next generation skills that will set you apart in a tough job market.
But even more importantly: Heinz College will empower you to use advanced tech and data to change the health care system for the better.
Some of the industry’s greatest challenges, that our faculty and students are working to solve:
- Creating new markets and business models for health informatics and bio-tech
- Applying AI to electronic health records to enable earlier interventions
- Optimizing integration among health systems and providers, discovering best practices to lower readmission
- Improving elder care through better care coordination and smart logistics
- Streamlining clinical trials, saving billions of dollars in the process
- Using robotics in surgery to make procedures safer and less invasive
- Collapsing the time from diagnosis to treatment using text analytics
- Revolutionizing detection and treatment of stroke and other major medical issues
- Using analytics to prevent the spread of infectious diseases
- Securing vulnerabilities in connected devices, including health care devices
