THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE
Master of Science in Health Care ANALYTICS & INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (MSHCA)
At nearly 20% of the U.S. economy, the health care system urgently needs innovations on many fronts. Data analytics and advanced technology will play a major role in reducing costs, improving quality of care, and enhancing the patient experience, as well as creating the products, services, and models that will revolutionize the field of health care.
Heinz College is the #1 graduate school for analytics education and IT management. Students in our Master of Science in Health Care Analytics & Information Technology (MSHCA) program learn how to convert raw data into actionable solutions for complex problems facing health care systems and medical firms, as well as build the next generation of health technologies.
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 skills that will set you apart in the job market.
But even more importantly: Heinz College will empower you to use advanced tech and data to change the future of health care.
Some of the industry’s greatest challenges, that our faculty and students are working to solve:
- Applying AI to electronic health records to enable earlier interventions
- Using robotics in surgery to make procedures safer and less invasive
- Collapsing the time from diagnosis to treatment using text analytics
- Using analytics to prevent the spread of infectious diseases
