Advanced Business Certificate in Health Care Analytics

Healthcare organizations often possess large amounts of data but do not necessarily have the analytical tools to correctly use these data for clinical or business purposes. Healthcare analytics is the systematic use of data to drive evidenced-based decision making in clinical and business settings. It involves the application of statistical tools and modeling techniques to healthcare-related data as a way of improving the quality and efficiency of clinical and business operations and outcomes.

This graduate-level certificate is offered in conjunction with UConn’s Operations and Information Management Department.
