The undergraduate minor in health information technology introduces students, in a nontechnical context, to the utilization of health information management in the professional arena of health care management and policy. Students examine the current and projected role of health information technology in the delivery of health care and development of health policy. Students also gain technical data analytic skills.
A minor in health information technology requires a minimum of 18 credits, at least 12 of which must be applied only to the minor and cannot be used to fulfill the program of study requirements of the student’s major, concentration, undergraduate certificate, or another minor. The minor is available to students who pursue another undergraduate major at George Mason University.
