- The goal of this course is to equip the student with an understanding of the underpinnings of the technology that so pervades modern life. We will cover the basic principles associated with computer information systems and will illustrate and apply them in the context of healthcare and healthcare education applications. We will use the personal computer (PC) as a learning model and extrapolate unto broader technologies and applications that impact the clinical and administrative delivery of healthcare, as well as healthcare education and research.
