Averett University, in collaboration with the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine, on Friday announced the development of an exclusive Master of Science degree in applied health care data analytics program.
Averett will begin offering the online program in January.
Averett launched a master’s in applied data analytics in the fall 2018 term from which this additional program is based, but with a more specific focus on the complex data needs of healthcare organizations.
“Averett developed a strategic initiative to build innovative partnerships to expand opportunities for students and the marketplace, and we are thrilled to collaborate with VCOM on this exciting new program,” Averett President Tiffany M. Franks said. “We believe this program will prove relevant for the health care industry and make graduates more marketable to hospitals and other health care organizations.
Averett’s applied health care data analytics program will help prepare students to use data and analytics to solve major problems facing the health care industry, creating more stable workplaces for both hospital personnel and patients. Designed for working professionals, the online format will teach students how to organize and manage medical information as a part of the efficiency and delivery of health care.
“Advancing scientific knowledge through research is part of our mission and strategic goals at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine. Priorities here focus on population-based research, primary care delivery and efficacy of care all elements that are integral to applied healthcare data analytics,” VCOM President Dr. Dixie Tooke-Rawlins said.
This program can be completed in as little as two years. For more information or to apply, visit http://info.averett.edu/ ms-healthcare-data-analytics.
