Course Information

Every health facility or organization relies on its technological systems to be organized. With the hard work of health system managers and administrators who make sure things run smoothly, doctors and nurses are able to perform their duties to the best of their ability. Fanshawe's Health System Management program will prepare you for an exciting career in the field of Health Administration and e-health digital transformation.

As a student, you'll discuss fascinating global advancements in the use of technology in electronic patient records, automated voice transcription, digital imaging concepts, ADT (admission-discharge-transfer) systems messaging and workflow. You'll also develop valuable skills in protocol analysis using HL7 and Dicom, HIPPA/PIPEDA/Security, billing, and similar technology.

Upon graduation, this training will increase your marketability with employers who are looking for motivated graduates that understand the current systems that are used at health care facilities.

The program is also excellent preparation for students who are interested in additional qualification with Fanshawe certificates such as Project Management or Information Security Management.

In any professional setting, organization is key, but nowhere is this more true than when people's medical data is on file. If you want to make a real difference, consider the Health System's Management program.
