Abstract: Information Systems as a field of academic study has witnessed tremendous growth both in scope and depth since its beginning in 1960s. With rapid growth of Information Technology in the field of healthcare, there is a need growing worldwide for IT personnel specializing in healthcare area as well. Market surveys involving the stakeholders at the regional level indicate the need for a bachelor's degree in computing and information systems with concentration in healthcare. This paper proposes a curriculum for such a study as an addition to the existing accredited portfolio of BSc. in Computer Information Systems (CIS) program being offered at the university level. Efforts have been made that the proposed HCIS curriculum conforms both to the standards laid out by the accrediting agency and the University mission. The focus of this report is to inform others of local efforts needed on their campuses and to share findings that may be of use to researchers in similar situations.
