A Pioneering New Program for Health Informatics Students

The MS/AHI program will be the first program of its kind to offer Robotic Process Automation (RPA) as part of the HHA 530 (Clinical Decision Making and Process Improvement) course in the Spring semester.

In partnership with the world’s leading RPA solution provider, Automation Anywhere, Bot Lab @ SHTM will provide MS/AHI students training in Automation Anywhere’s Automation 360 platform. Upon successful completion of the RPA-specific portion of the course, students will receive an Automation Anywhere A360 Essential RPA Professional badge.


What is Robotic Process Automation?

Robotic Process Automation is a simple and powerful software solution that uses no-code/low-code tools to create digital “robots” to automate any business process. RPA bots are configurable pieces of software set up to perform tasks assigned and controlled by end users. These bots can interact with any system or application in the same way a user does. Furthermore, this process is code-free, non-disruptive, non-invasive, and easy.

Automation Anywhere A360 is the leading intelligent automation platform used by the world's top enterprises. It is the world’s only cloud-native, web-based platform for end-to-end automation.


The Transforming Health Care Industry

Health care is evolving rapidly as technology increasingly permeates all spheres of the industry. RPA is helping health care professionals to automate repetitive, non-value-add processes related to data entry, revenue cycle management, inventory management, payer claims processing, and much more. 

With the Automation Anywhere A360 Essential RPA Professional training, MS/AHI students will gain hands-on experience building bots, as well as an industry-recognized credential, to complement their AHI diploma.
