There is a dire need for professionals with practical knowledge and skills in health analytics—ones who can convert large data repositories into actionable insight for better decisions to enhance effectiveness and efficiency in the ever more complex and highly competitive health care domain. Listening to the health care companies/employers in the region as they repeatedly articulate their challenges and corresponding needs, with this certificate program, we designed, developed, and implemented the first stage of an evidence-based, hands-on educational program to produce the new generation of health care analytics professionals.

OSU presently has an internationally ranked MS in MIS program offered in the Spears School of Business. Additionally, the Center of Health Sciences offers a unique, internationally recognized MS in Health Care Administration (HCA) program. Finally, the Center of Health Systems Integration (CHSI) has recently been created in Tulsa to provide a nexus for all research and programmatic operations related to the intersection of health, healthcare, informatics, and analytics/data sciences. These three entities have come together to offer a unique interdisciplinary program – a Certificate in Health Analytics.

The goal of this certificate program is to educate/produce the next generation of analytics professionals who can transform “Big Data” sources into actionable knowledge and insight for the betterment of health, health care, and medicine.
