Course Description

QUT offers the only health information management course in Queensland. The course has been designed in response to national health reforms and the introduction of eHealth systems and associated infrastructure. Employment opportunities are excellent.

During this course, you will visit health information managers at major hospitals, government agencies and not-for-profit organisations. These experiences provide insight into the diversity of available roles and offer valuable opportunities to network. You will prepare for transition to the workplace with professional placement that can be completed locally or overseas.

Your study will focus on business management, analysing and managing budgets, and eHealth systems. Health units will develop knowledge in medical terminology, the Australian healthcare system and clinical classifications. Health information managers are well suited to leadership roles because they understand clinical practices, finance functions, information technology applications and staff management. The combination of knowledge across business, information technology and health will prepare you for many roles.
