The Health Care Design and Innovation Post-Baccalaureate Certificate prepares health care and design practitioners to create optimal healing environments. Students will learn how to apply design thinking in creating new processes, systems and care environments. The certificate will emphasize principles that promote healing and safe patient care while maximizing clinical and financial outcomes.
By combining formal clinical or public health baccalaureate or preparation with course work in health information technology (HIT), individuals will be able to lead the successful deployment and use of HIT to achieve transformational improvement in the quality, safety, outcomes, and thus in the value, of health services. The majority of course work is web-based with 2-3 in-person sessions per semester.
