Logan University Adds a Master's Degree in Health Informatics

Logan University has announced the addition of a new master’s degree focused on health care technology and administration.

The online Master of Science Degree in Health Informatics (MSHI) is designed to address the rapidly growing area of information system design, data management, health policy and public health issues. It is geared toward those looking to gain more experience in the areas of health care, information technology and business.

Sherri Cole, PhD, dean of the College of Health Sciences, said as the health care industry continues to evolve, the demand for heath informatics professionals is growing.

"Logan has developed this degree because we recognize the critical role health informatics plays in healthcare delivery, now and in the future," she said. "This degree will train professionals who understand how health care is delivered and how technology can be used to its full potential to ensure high quality patient care."

Beginning in Fall 2015, the MSHI degree program will be offered completely online, allowing students to enroll in classes which fit around their work schedules. Tuition for the program is $450 per credit hour and is one of the most affordable of all online Health Informatics programs.

The MSHI degree program consists of 24 credit hours of core coursework with the option of choosing one out of the four concentration areas: healthcare compliance, health policy and management, public health and quality systems. Graduates are eligible to sit for the Certified Professional in Health Information & Management Systems (CPHIMS) certification.

Yoga Classes at Logan

Yoga classes are being offered at Logan! For the remainder of the current Tri, classes will be held from 3:00pm to 4:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays either inside the Purser Center or on the grass directly in front of the Purser Center if the weather is nice.

The classes focus on alignment and breath coordinated with movement in order to build core strength and awareness in each pose. These classes allow each student to move and learn at their own pace.
