The online Health Data Analyst Certificate program prepares students to work independently to document external data acquisition policies and procedures, as well as interface with other business units to define and document data needs and ad-hoc analysis requirements. The curriculum teaches students to assist with the development, maintenance, and support of the data architecture and models for health care databases; establish uniform data capture methods and strategies for validating the accuracy and reliability of data; and analyze and interpret health data using acceptable methods, criteria, and metrics. Graduates are able to generate meaningful reports and provide recommendations based on the data, perform statistical analyses for projects and reports, utilize data mining techniques and procedures, and demonstrate ethical practices.
