The rapid spread of Information Technology (IT) has generated a need for highly trained workers to design and develop new hardware and software systems. Through courses in data structures, database systems, user interfaces and information technologies, you will learn about information management systems and how to achieve organizational objectives that relate to technology without the traditional emphasis on software development.
There is already an alignment of clauses in ISO 9000, ISO 14001 (the environmental management system standard) and OHSAS 18001 (the health and safety management standard) that supports this integration, and which enables organizations to benefit from lower cost initial audits, fewer surveillance visits and which, most importantly, allows organizations to ‘join up’ their management systems.
With the help of the transformation of information technology in health section, you will get benefit in your overall healthcare circle including relationships of your doctors, your hospital records, your pharmacy and other important medical information.
Using the general phases of the SDLC (information systems planning, analysis, design, implementation, and support) there could be a project to develop a strategic information systems plan; another project to complete a systems analysis for a new system; another project to create a detailed database design; another to install new hardware or software; and another to provide new user training.
You’ll develop an understanding of infrastructure technology, operating systems and visual information systems, and have the option to focus your studies on areas that interest you such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), programming or web applications.
