The course provides a survey of the computing systems, technologies, and data sets used throughout the healthcare system--spanning provider, patient, payer, and pharma. The purpose is to provide MEng and MS students with an understanding of the functional requirements and constraints placed on these digital systems and to provide a basis for future innovation.
This is the core course for Cornell Tech's MS in IS Health Tech Hub and for all other Cornell Tech students interested in Health Tech. All Cornell Tech masters students are welcome to enroll. There are no pre-requisites for the 1 unit version of the class. In order to take the 3 unit class students should be enrolled as MS or MEng students and we assume moderate programming and data analysis skills at the level of 2110 or 4110.
