These strengths are highly desirable in today’s healthcare professions. By taking the elective courses students could choose to learn data-driven decision support systems which are highly relevant to clinical decision making and care planning, or to gain deeper exposure to IT management that is essential to practice management. The HISM minor program will typically take two years to complete. However, students carrying HP 250 or IS 220 credits into the Program may fast-track to completion in the near future. For sample paths through the Program please visit www.is.uwlax.edu. HEALTH INFORMATION SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT MINOR PROGRAM The Information Systems (IS) department has established an undergraduate minor program in health information systems management (HISM). The potential students of this program will come from all non-IS business majors and health-related disciplines on the UW-L campus. The objective of the HISM minor is to infuse pertinent, up-to-date health information systems knowledge into the students who will take on responsibilities in using information systems to manage medical practice and/or make clinical decisions to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery. While graduates of this program will become more proficient in healthcare information technology and be ready to join technology project teams in the healthcare industry, the program does not intend to produce electronic medical record (EMR) or electronic health record (EHR) coders. Instead, the Minor program will increase the marketability of students in their respective career tracks. CURRICULUM The HISM minor can be taken by non-IS CBA majors and majors in non-CBA colleges. FOR CBA MAJORS the minor program consists of seven courses (six required, one elective) totaling 19 credits: FOR NON-CBA MAJORS the minor program consist of eight courses (seven required, one elective) totaling 23 credits: REQUIRED COURSES NUMBER TITLE HP 250 Medical Terminology (Online) HP 250* Medical Terminology (Online) 1 F,Su REQUIRED COURSES NUMBER TITLE CREDIT TIMING 1 F,Su IS 220 Information Systems for Business Management 4 F,S,Su CREDIT TIMING IS 321 Survey of IT in Healthcare 3 F IS 321 Survey of IT in Healthcare 3 F IS 340 Ethics, Security and Compliance 3 F IS 340 Ethics, Security and Compliance 3 F IS 370 Healthcare Systems: Analysis and Design 3 F IS 370 Healthcare Systems: Analysis and Design 3 F IS 420 Healthcare Systems: Project Management 3 S IS 420 Healthcare Systems: Project Management 3 S IS 435 Data Communications & Networks in Healthcare 3 S IS 435 Data Communications & Networks in Healthcare 3 S 3 S 3 S ELECTIVE (one from) IS 320 Computer-based Decision Support Systems 3 S ELECTIVE (one from) IS 320 Computer-based Decision Support Systems IS 360 3 F IS 360 Management of Information Technology Management of Information Technology * Waived for non-CBA students who have taken this course.
