Masters in Health Informatics anyone?

Recommended Posts

Since my PA program did not offer a Masters, I was thinking of getting an MPAS since I graduated,but that has changed. Now, for the past year I've been part of the core team involved in implementing EHR at the community health center I work for and I am also a current super user. This has really opened my interest in this field. Now I've been looking at Masters in Health Informatics programs. The school that caught my eye is University of Illinois in Chicago that offers an MPH in Public Health Informatics.

 

Is anyone involved in this field? Your opinions? Thoughts? MHI vs MPH-PHI?

      In the modern world we all want to be living as healthy a life as possible. But, sometimes, making the changes to achieve this healthier lifestyle is not always as simple (or easy) as we may wish. And sometimes we choose to make massive changes to our lives, practically overnight, which can actually end up having a big impact and it might not necessarily be a good one.
       
      So, what are some of the best things that you can introduce into your daily life in order to ensure you lead a healthier lifestyle?
       
      1) Introduce Spice
       
      And other than making your life just that little bit more flavourful, many spices also have the added benefit of containing oxidants and other good aspects that help the health of your body. Not only that, but spices can also help to replace salt and sugar in recipes whilst still maintaining flavour. Which is vital if you find your diet has too much of either or both.
       
      In fact, - using fresh chilli peppers - can make people eat smaller portions and chillies can actually be fat burning. So, if you want to control your weight then making an effort to spice up your foods might help!
       
      2) Daily Walks
       
      Exercise doesn’t have to be a hassle, nor does it necessarily have to take up your whole day. It can be as simple as taking a short, 30-minute or less, walk each and every day to ensure that you are being active. Even though it may not feel like much, even doing exercise on such a small scale can actually have a big impact and you will be able to see a difference from day one.
       
      3) Introduce Supplements
       
      Sometimes, we simply can’t get everything that we need in our diets naturally. Either because you would need to eat way more or you simply don’t eat enough of the required food. One way to combat this issue is to work with your body in acquiring these nutrients outside of your diet with the use of supplements instead.
       
      4) Sleep More
       Not sleeping, sleeping too much and sleep-related. Having a bedtime, whilst feeling slightly childish, can ensure you get enough sleep and set you into a routine which your body gets used to. Having this routine can lead to much more happiness and energy in the long term, especially if you are someone that struggles with having a healthy routine or sleep heavily impacts your life at all.
       
      5) Keep Up Your Mental Health
       
      Small changes can be the best changes to our overall health it has to be said. But, there are also plenty of bigger changes that you can also be making to help yourself feel better in the long term. One of these changes includes your mental wellbeing. A healthy mind has a mountain of positive benefits for your health as a whole, so it often pays to work towards a healthy brain alongside all of your other bodily health improvements.

      I'm considering doing a 2 year commitment to the Indian Health Service once I graduate (May 2018) to get some help paying back my loans. Does anyone have any experience as a PA with the IHS or what it's like working on a reservation? I've heard mixed reviews but it seems like a great way to help an underserved population while getting help paying back my pile of student loan debt.

      Hi everyone! I'm graduating this May with a B.S. in Nutrition/Dietetics, and heading down to Virginia soon after to be with my significant other. I have been perusing the job boards in the area that I'm moving to get an idea of what medical assistant jobs are posted and what the typical qualifications are. Anyways, I see that in Virginia, as opposed to Pennsylvania where I live now, most medical assistant job postings require the medical assistant certificate. I was kind of hoping that I can get an MA position to finally accumulate HCE. I have my EMT-B certification, but have never ran for the company I'm affiliated with (got it out of state and I am still waiting on my instate certification...). Do you think it's pointless to apply for these MA jobs, or will my current certification be useful? 
       
      Prior to me receiving my EMT-B certification, I had plans to transfer my certification to VA and work in an ED or for a station; however, seeing as it has taken 5 months already to transfer my certificate from one state to another, I decided to not do that (should have traveled and taken the in state class, huh). My goal was to apply this coming summer, but it looks like I might have to postpone my application for another year. Any advice/insight?
