A new academic program in healthcare informatics will be available next fall at Trocaire College in South Buffalo.
Geared toward working adults, the program will offer evening and weekend classes, the college said. Students may earn certificates, associate degrees or bachelor’s degrees, in preparation for jobs that deal with new information systems and technologies at hospitals, medical groups, healthcare insurers, public health agencies and firms engaged in healthcare information technology.
The main skill set will involve the ability to create or implement
databases and other technology systems and collect, store and access
medical data, the college said.
