Rotman Healthcare Analytics: AI, Big Data & Digital Transformation

in collaboration with online education provider EMERITUS

Healthcare data is projected to grow exponentially in the next few years, with a 10-fold increase expected by 2025, according to IDC. But collecting data is only part of the equation. Putting healthcare data to work requires leaders and managers with a solid understanding of the role of analytics in healthcare organizations and how to incorporate it into their day-to-day operations and decision-making.

This seven-week Healthcare Analytics: AI, Big Data & Digital Transformation online program will help you learn to ask the right questions to data analysts, build your analytics knowledge, make decisions, and create healthcare solutions using data. You'll also learn to use data to drive cultural change in your organization to ensure you thrive in today's analytics-based economy.

What you'll get:

  • Increased healthcare data literacy that will enable you to effectively communicate with data analysts (to know how and what questions to ask), and to understand, incorporate, and build a healthcare analytics outlook into your organizations and teams.
  • The expertise to interpret data analyses results and make data-driven decisions for optimal outcomes in the healthcare industry.
  • An understanding of the importance of the emerging roles of artificial intelligence in healthcare and its applications to improve your organizational processes and outcomes.
