Centennial College's Health Informatics Technology program will combine knowledge of software engineering and health care systems. In this advanced technology diploma program's courses, you'll learn to design, develop, and maintain the next generation of electronic health record applications and other exciting software products.

Under the umbrella of the School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science, this program will cover:

  • Object-oriented software design methodologies
  • User-oriented interface design
  • The structure of health care information systems
  • Telehealth
  • Clinical workflow and IT solutions
  • Data security
  • Privacy issues within health care systems

Software technologies will be the focus of this health technology program. They will include C#, Java, Oracle, MS-SQL Server, Unix/ Linux, Microsoft's ASP.NET Core, HTML5/JavaScript/XML, mobile application development, data warehousing, and data mining, and BI tools in health care systems.

To underscore the curriculum's applied focus, the Health Informatics Technology program will include two software development projects. These real-world business applications will require you to utilize all the technical, systems, and business skills gained during your studies.

The knowledge you'll acquire in this health technology program will enable you to design, develop, modify, and test software for health care applications. You'll also be able to analyze and model data, develop health care databases and support decision-making based on data mining techniques. Lastly, you'll have the know-how to use health informatics methods and software tools for hospitals, health care agencies, and public health departments.

Please note: Qualified college or university graduates with a background in software may gain direct admission into Semester 3 of this three-year program and receive their Health Informatics Technology advanced diploma in four semesters (program #3528)
