HI 6300 Advanced Health Information Systems

(2 hours lecture/3 hours laboratory)
3 semester credit hours/meets part of advanced informatics competencies
Prerequisite: HI 5300

This course will examine advanced concepts in health informatics systems, including mechanisms for linking current information systems with legacy systems, network-based information systems, community health information systems (CHINs) and communication among disparate information systems. Topics will include identifiers, electronic data interchange systems and new models of information systems. Emphasis will be given to issues of how computational knowledge techniques affect the kind and type of knowledge displayed. Automation of knowledge reorganization as it is transferred among disciplines and settings will be discussed.
