Here’s what people have to say about the Health Informatics MS degree program:

“It’s almost impossible to find qualified healthcare IT professionals for our health informatics projects. Northeastern has created a one-of-a-kind program that addresses this need.”

– Todd Rothenhaus

CIO, Caritas Christi Health Care System

“To be successful in health informatics, you have to be aware of not only your piece of the puzzle, but also of how it’s going to affect other aspects of the healthcare system. This program is one of the few to provide that total view of the impact of IT in healthcare.”

– Chuck Parker, Northeastern health informatics student

Executive Director, Continua Health Alliance

“Clinicians have to work with IT and vice versa to get things done. This program taught me how to successfully collaborate with IT teams to participate in and lead the development of exciting new clinical applications for my hospital.”

– Anne Burgess, Northeastern health informatics student

Former Nurse and current Clinical Database Programmer, Brigham and Women’s Hospital
