Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Analytics

The healthcare industry is moving rapidly from the fee for service model toward value-based purchasing where enterprises are reimbursed based on outcomes rather than volume of procedures. Decision-makers need timely information on a host of metrics from electronic medical records and other sources to compete in this new landscape. The number of positions in healthcare enterprises are likely to outstrip the available supply of qualified professionals. International Data Corporation (IDC) Health Insights identified analytics technology as “the top investment priority of organizations pursuing accountable care.” The Health Policy and Management Department, in the UAMS Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health, is now offering a Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Analytics.

The certificate program in this new and high priority field supports the UAMS mission to remain at the forefront of education, innovation, and the translation of discoveries into population health. It is the only training program dedicated to healthcare analytics in Arkansas and can be obtained in one year.
