Introduction


The Bachelor of Science degree programme in Health Informatics and Information Management is built on a rich knowledgebase, encompassing three domains: clinical practice, information management principles and informatics concepts. The curriculum includes distinct knowledge clusters categorized into content areas such as: Biomedical Sciences, Health Data, Healthcare Statistics and Research, Quality Management and Performance Improvement, Health Services Organization and Delivery, Applied Health Informatics, Organization and Management, Healthcare Privacy, Confidentiality, Legal and Ethical Aspects, Information Technology and Systems, and others.


The curriculum is distinctive in two ways: First, the specialisation to healthcare throughout the curriculum. Second, the combination of studies in the biomedical sciences, management, and information fields. Curriculum delivery incorporates diversified teaching/learning strategies such as didactic lectures, lab simulations and professional practice experience at affiliated clinical sites off-campus. The department strives to reflect best practices in teaching, and latest developments in the field through continuously reviewing and revising curriculum content, delivery methods and evaluation techniques. The program aims at fostering the development of graduates who are academically and professionally prepared to assume the responsibilities of leadership in their chosen organisations and communities. They are unique as they are equipped with a transformational skill set that may be employed in different fields, including health care organizations, government agencies, information technology vendors, insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies. With the current and emerging trend and push for electronic health records and information exchange networks, health informatics and information management is one of the most relevant fields in health care today.
