Public health informatics (PHI) studies and applies information science and computing techniques to public health practice. The MPH degree with a concentration in PHI provides a foundation for engineering data and information systems within health systems, as well as governmental and non-profit public health organizations to support the collection, storage, management, analysis, application and sharing of information to improve population health outcomes.
Students learn how to think critically about population level data and apply informatics approaches to address pressing public health issues, such as the integration of comprehensive care services for vulnerable populations, engaging populations in healthy behaviors using information technologies, regional and global health surveillance, management of very large data sets across the health system, comparative effectiveness analysis, and appropriate use of population health data analytics to influence public health programs and policies.
