Precision Health Program Certificate Student
Medical School MS Health Infrastructures and Learning Systems Student


Catherine is a master’s student in the Health Infrastructures and Learning Systems program. Having spent a career in healthcare information services for providers, health plans and employers to improve health services and outcomes, Catherine has seen firsthand that improvement is seldom commensurate with the effort to achieve better outcomes. She is pursuing her masters with the intention of helping to discover ways that best practices can be uncovered speedily and implemented effectively, and results evaluated for timely input to improving the practices. She feels the Precision Health Certificate will afford her a broader view, understanding, and insight into new tools that can be used to model, plan, and implement healthcare improvements.
