This program provides courses that cover key aspects of clinical informatics that are important to support new and emerging areas in healthcare.

Upon completion of this program you will be able to:

  • Articulate the role of health IT and emerging data sources in deriving population health solutions and explain their application in the context of population health management
  • Explain the role of assessment and prediction of risk or health status of a population in identifying segments with greatest needs
  • Describe precision medicine, its implementation challenges, and its potential impact on patient-centered care
  • Explain the differences between fee-for-service and value-based care and key elements of legislation that affects the shift to value-based care
  • Define and discuss DIY medicine, the Quantified Self, and mHealth, including the types of tools available and the challenges of incorporating these approaches in clinical care

The American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) has approved this activity for a maximum of 6 LLSA credits towards ABPM MOC Part II requirements.

This course introduces you to how the current fee-for-service payment system works and why and how the business of healthcare is changing. The unit will define the concepts of value, and value-based care as well as consumer empowerment.

This course provides an overview and introduction to the field of population health and the application of health IT and informatics to population health. This unit compares and contrasts the field of population health to public health and to clinical practice.

This course describes what precision medicine is, how it is being used in patient-centered care and the challenges of implementing precision medicine.

One of the key steps in population health is assessment and prediction of the risk or health status of the population and identification of those with greatest needs. This unit explores this key step from both a conceptual and practical basis, and it offers a detailed case study using one widely applied population health risk analytic tool that makes use of electronic health care data to help support a wide range of population health activities.
