The HBI degree program is intended for computer system professionals who expect to work for a healthcare provider of any size; from large scale hospital systems to small practice offices.
A concentration in healthcare terminology and medico-legal issues is combined with specific courses in healthcare networking and database design. Any healthcare provider that uses computers to store and manage their patient information needs an IT professional that understands the confidentiality and business process concerns of the industry – this degree program is intended to produce those IT professionals.
Potential employers for graduates of this program would include the IT departments at Rex, Wake Med and Duke Hospitals, and any healthcare related industry partner, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield and other health insurance providers.
