Healthcare Technology Field

Graduates of our healthcare technology programs will be at the forefront of the move toward more patient-centric and value-based healthcare delivery models.

Advance Healthcare through Data Science, AI, and Informatics

Professionals in the healthcare technology and informatics area play a significant role in advancing the practice and delivery of healthcare—and are an essential pillar within the business of care management. Technology makes it possible for patients to interact with medical professionals at a distance and facilitates interprofessional team-based delivery of complex care outside the four walls of hospitals. Healthcare technology also enables the compilation and storage of vital, easily accessible health data, and informatics professionals make it possible to utilize that data to support ethical, evidence-based decision-making. MCPHS is expanding its health technology offerings to meet the intensifying demand for specialists in this space. These new programs will prepare them to promote communication among patients and providers, facilitate the interpretation of healthcare data, and lead research and discovery in life-science and biotech companies.
