INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 24, 2019--Affirming the quality and rigor of its health care degree programs, Purdue University Global was recently selected as an Approved Education Partner (AEP) by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society ( HIMSS ) for its master’s degree offerings in health informatics and health information management.

HIMSS, based in Chicago, is a global not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality, safety, cost-effectiveness, and access through the best use of information technology and management systems.

As an AEP, Purdue Global joins an exclusive group of organizations authorized to offer HIMSS-approved healthcare and health information and technology education, as well as select training programs that prepare candidates for advanced knowledge in health information and technology or healthcare.

“The fast-changing world of health care requires a highly-trained, highly-skilled workforce that’s conversant in health care data, analytics and information management,” said Keith Smith, dean and vice president of Purdue Global’s School of Health Sciences. “It’s a great honor for Purdue Global to be recognized by HIMSS as an Approved Education Partner and testimony to the outstanding work of our faculty and staff to develop a world-class curriculum that serves the interests of students and the health care community.”

Purdue Global’s Master’s of Health Informatics and Master’s of Health Information Management degrees are available to students through convenient, flexible, fully online programs. These programs provide students with an opportunity to engage in a wide range of learning activities, including clinical terminology and medical vocabulary, statistics, project management, health information systems, leadership, legal and ethical issues and data analytics.

Both programs include a final capstone project allowing the students to apply their classroom learning experience to real-world problems and situations. These programs also serve as a solid foundation to prepare the student to take the CAHIMS and CPHIMS professional certification exams.

“HIMSS is pleased to welcome Purdue University Global as an Approved Education Partner. By earning this designation, the organization has demonstrated that their educational development activities meet the rigorous standards for quality as identified by HIMSS.
