Minor in Health Care Analytics

A minor in Health Care Analytics provides students with historical, current and predictive views of business operations using the concepts associated with Business Intelligence (BI). Students are introduced to the processes associated with planning, designing, building, populating, and maintaining a successful Data Warehouse (DW).

 

Within five required courses students will also learn to appreciate the value of the data warehouse as an essential decision-support tool needed in all healthcare settings. Students will examine various forms of graphical modeling methods, including business modeling, entity relationship diagramming, dimensional modeling, physical modeling, and Warehouse metadata management.

 

As is the case with the minor in Health Informatics, a minor in Health Care Analytics is also a perfect complement to any and all of the degree and/or completion programs offered at Baptist College. Moreover, leaders in the Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation (BMHCC) have indicated that there is a dearth of skills related to health care analytics within the Baptist system, and such a minor will support the goal of better preparing health care professionals in the Baptist system to understand the roles of data in improving both quality and outcomes across all of the BMHCC health care settings.

 

A minor in Health Care Analytics will require the completion of the following five courses (15 credit hours) of study:

 

  • HCM 425 – Health Administration Information Systems
  • HCM 359 - Health Care Data Analysis
  • HCM 360 - Quality Improvement in Health Care
  • HCM 405 - Healthcare Data Mining
  • HCM 355 – Information Systems Project Management
