The Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT) announced that Israel’s Council for Higher Education has approved the Samson Health Informatics Master’s Program, which will enable the College to embark on crucial research and teaching activities in a cutting-edge field that will improve the quality of patient care by utilizing data and technology as the basis for making better clinical decisions.
Israel’s first academic program in health informatics will offer a master’s degree (MHI). This comes five years after JCT initially received guidance and support from the University of Toronto to launch a certificate program in this field. JCT is also collaborating with Jerusalem-based Herzog Hospital and other universities around the world on the program’s academic and research components.
JCT’s curriculum is designed for health care workers, as well as for experts in economics, law, management, and engineering. It will allow graduates to define and characterize health-related aspects of different technologies so as to provide optimized treatment while maximizing the benefits of new technologies in the workplace.
