About Us

Health informatics and information management professionals are trained in information management technology applications and the operations and workflow of a variety of healthcare organizations. Specialists in this field have a direct and valuable effect on patients without being involved in direct patient care, and can pursue careers in informatics; data analytics; privacy, risk and compliance; revenue cycle management; data quality; and more.

The WVU Health Informatics and Information Management department offers the first and only BS degree of its kind in West Virginia, as well as a minor in Healthcare Data Analytics. Information on each program can be found on this site, along with more about our mission and goals; faculty and staff; upcoming events; and more.
