Key Takeaways

  • The designation puts Northeastern’s MSHI program in an exclusive group recognized by HIMSS for the program’s accomplishments in preparing students for a future in the industry.

The Master of Science in Health Informatics (MSHI) at Northeastern’s Bouvé College of Health Sciences and Khoury College of Computer Sciences has been designated as a HIMSS Approved Education Partner (AEP).

Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, Inc. (HIMSS) is a mission-driven nonprofit that supports the transformation of the health ecosystem through information and technology.

Receiving a HIMSS AEP designation means our Health Informatics graduate program “has met HIMSS’ rigorous standards for quality health information and technology education aligned to the competencies that are most critical in today’s workforce.” Our program, according to HIMSS, boasts a comprehensive curriculum that focuses on the interdisciplinary study of the design, development, adoption, and application of information, data, and technology-driven innovations in healthcare.

HIMSS says the Introduction to Health Informatics and Health Information Systems course, one of many courses in the MSHI program, “is a great example how the coursework offered by this program is preparing students for the current needs of the industry.”

This designation puts Northeastern’s MSHI program in an exclusive group of those recognized by HIMSS for accomplishments and programs that prepare learners to sit for a HIMSS professional certification exam.
