MS in Health Informatics & AnalyticsMentors

A few words of mentorship can go far in career guidance. Mentors can share insight into an industry, open doors to professional contacts, and provide advice to students about achieving their professional goals. Through our MSHIA Mentor Program, we hope to allow students to:

  1. grow their network
  2. learn more about the vast expanse of health informatics by connecting with those in practice

While our students are required to complete some networking activities, mentor interactions are not part of their grade - though they may use insights gained from mentors in class projects. Rather, mentors are provided to help students acclimate to the professional space and develop a vision of their own goals over the course of a very brief 14-month academic program, thereby preparing them for a smoother transition after graduation.

Suzy Espinosa   
Senior Manager - Acquisitions and Strategic Initiatives
AdventHealth
linkedin- Suzy Espinosa

When the company embarks on acquisitions of hospitals or when we build new ones, my team coordinates the activities related to converting legacy healthcare IT systems from previous ones to our company's standard systems. We implement new EMRs, interfaces, biomedical devices, and associated software. In a sense, Health IT is my role because getting these large-scale clinical systems implementations off the ground requires knowledge of how the systems interact with each other, how they help hospitals provide safe, quality care, and how revenue cycle systems are integrated into clinical care and hospital administration.
