Turn Big Data into Big Ideas with New TWU Informatics Degrees

By introducing bachelor’s degrees in both informatics and health informatics, along with a brand-new master’s degree in informatics, TWU is responding to the needs of today’s employers. The university has added 39 new informatics courses, creating a multifaceted program with a total graduate/undergraduate portfolio of more than 70 courses. The Jobs Rated Almanac for 2015 lists informatics-related fields in its top 10 salaries, including:

  • #6 Data Scientist: average income $124,149
  • #10 Computer Systems Analyst: average income $81,150

Average Salaries for Informatics Jobs in Dallas, TX

In a historic moment for TWU, the first two graduates of the university’s new informatics program crossed the stage during May’s commencement ceremony to accept their diplomas. Both Andrea Mapua, recipient of a bachelor of science degree in health informatics with a clinical applications minor, and Kimberly Sehannie, recipient of a bachelor of science degree in health informatics with a health studies minor, have received multiple job offers and accepted positions within their field.

A New Frontier for Women

Although the tech industry has typically been a male-dominated field, there are a number of available jobs particularly appealing to women looking to get in on the ground floor of a developing market. For those interested in all of the challenges and rewards a job in technology has to offer, TWU’s new degree programs provide the tools women need to embark upon an engaging career path with unlimited opportunities.

By encouraging me to network with other female students and engage in conversations with supportive professors, TWU has given me the confidence I need to succeed in a traditionally male-dominated industry.

Working at the Intersection of Technology and Society

The skills gained with these degrees are in high demand. Within the healthcare industry alone, there currently is a need for up to 70,000 clinical informatics specialists/analysts in fields such as nursing, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. Also, as of 2014, all healthcare providers are now required under federal mandate to file medical records electronically, with more industries expected to follow suit in the coming years. This means unprecedented job growth for trained informatics professionals.

Data Scientist Job Trends

We re always looking at the career needs of the 21st century so our students can stay on the cutting edge of the current job market.

Jennifer Martin, interim TWU provost and vice president of academic affairs

Why Informatics at TWU?

Informaticists work in a wide range of high demand and high paying career fields. At TWU, we ve taken a broad-based, interprofessional approach to this degree program. Our emphasis on interdisciplinary education puts the university in an ideal position to bring together the fields of math, computer science, nursing, health studies and more.

Don Edwards, professor and chair of the TWU Department of Mathematics and Computer Science

By building on the success of TWU’s popular informatics certificate — a five-course program that allows working professionals with a bachelor’s degree to supplement their training and boost their career prospects — our faculty have designed a curriculum of flexible, hybrid courses that will thoroughly prepare students for life after graduation. Each class is customized to create an interprofessional environment, allowing students from different disciplines to work side-by-side, collaborating in the classroom before teaming up in the workplace.

As one of only two Texas universities with a bachelor’s degree in informatics, and one of only three Texas universities offering a master’s degree in informatics, TWU is at the forefront of an increasingly competitive field. By anticipating employer needs and combining small class sizes with dedicated faculty, TWU is turning today’s informatics graduates into tomorrow’s technology leaders.

What is Biomedical Informatics?

Defining Informatics

One of the biggest challenges for the field of informatics is the variability in the word(s) that precede informatics. The most comprehensive term to describe the field is biomedical and health informatics (BMHI). Sometimes just components of these broader terms are used, such as biomedical informatics or health informatics. But all of them refer to the field that is concerned with the optimal use of information, often aided by the use of technology, to improve individual health, health care, public health, and biomedical research. Practitioners of informatics are usually called informaticians (sometimes informaticists) and view their focus more on information than technology.

Sometimes narrower words appear in front of informatics. Other uses of informatics in biomedical and health-related areas include:

  • Clinical informatics – Generally refers to informatics applied in healthcare or individual health settings. Sometimes medical informatics is used to describe this area. The application of informatics focused on specific healthcare disciplines usually includes the name of that discipline, such as nursing (nursing informatics), dentistry (dental informatics), pathology (pathology informatics), etc.
  • Bioinformatics – The application of informatics in cellular and molecular biology, often with a focus on genomics. The sub-term translational bioinformatics is used to describe bioinformatics applied to human health.
  • Imaging informatics – Informatics with a focus on imaging, including the use of PACS systems to store and retrieve images in health care settings.
  • Consumer health informatics – The field devoted to informatics from a consumer view.
  • Research informatics – The use of informatics to facilitate biomedical and health research, which subsumes the frequently described area of clinical research informatics that is widely used to describe informatics applications in clinical research. This increasingly includes an emphasis on translational research, which aims to accelerate research findings from bench (biological) to bedside and into widespread clinical practice.
  • Public health informatics – The application of informatics in areas of public health, including surveillance, reporting, and health promotion.
  • Health information management (HIM) – While not a formal is the discipline that has historically focused on the management of medical records. As the medical record has become electronic, this field has been in transition and increasingly overlaps with informatics.
