Capella University's online Health Care Informatics certificate integrates information science, computer science, social science, and health care to give you the skills and knowledge you need to help your organization improve the overall quality of health care and population health. The curriculum is built around the most relevant, real-world health care problems to ensure you'll gain the skills you need to provide and implement immediate, impactful, and efficient health informatics solutions.

To learn more about this certificate program, request more information and we will match you with an enrollment counselor who specializes in your area of study. We’ll also email you a free copy of A Guide to Nursing and Health Care Informatics.

Aligned to HIMSS and NCHL

The curriculum is aligned with the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) standards and the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) Competency Model™, providing you with the knowledge and skill sets expected by leading health care organizations. Enrollment in this program provides you with a free HIMSS membership—a benefit available to individuals in any of our informatics programs.

Real-World Learning Through Virtual Lab Environment

In this program, you’ll have access to Vila Health™, an immersive, simulated health system. This virtual lab—available only at Capella—allows you to practice real–world informatics situations and challenges first hand, including improving interoperability, clinical workflow, meaningful use initiatives, ICD–10, and population health.

Comprised entirely of courses from our MHA in Health Care Informatics, the Health Care Informatics certificate offers an opportunity to earn a marketable credential in as little as 9 months—and earn credits that can be transferred into our MHA.
