As a UAB graduate you can help institute a better, more knowledegable data-driven decision-making process.

Our graduates also assist organizations with developing information and data governance strategies, which help define the way the healthcare industry thinks about quality, security, access to data and policies surrounding data. The proliferation of information technology to support workers in the healthcare industry has resulted in a massive amount of healthcare data being generated.
