Concordia University's Healthcare Management Program Partners with Technology Firm to Deliver a Progressive and Relevant Education for Tomorrow's Healthcare Executives.

Irvine, CA—Concordia University Irvine is pleased to announce a partnership with the technology firm SpeedTrack. Concordia University's Healthcare Management program has capitalized on its unique opportunity to develop a meaningful and relevant curriculum that goes beyond textbooks and lectures to include real world applications and data management for creative solution development in the Healthcare environment.

SpeedTrack, headquartered in Yorba Linda, combines data storage, integration, analysis and search into a single scalable technology that incrementally guides the user to information. SpeedTrack's online search and analysis service allows healthcare professionals access to the past 4 years of every Inpatient, Outpatient and ER encounter in California - over 63 million records spanning 550+ fields of data. This data is published by the Office of State Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), and is the only comprehensive dataset of all patient encounters.

"SpeedTrack is the ideal technology to assist us in fulfilling our commitment to provide students with a meaningful and relevant education,” said Dr. Stephen Duarte, Academic Program Director/Assistant Professor. "Our healthcare management students will have access to an information database that will help them hone their analytical skills, and offers immediate applications in their field. SpeedTrack helps enable our students to be better qualified and credible in the job market.”

"SpeedTrack is excited to partner with Concordia's forward-thinking Healthcare Management program to provide technology that promotes critical thinking,” said Miles Yano, SpeedTrack's CEO. "Our technology enables any student to mine OSHPD data for the answers they need in just a few mouse clicks, and find "Ah-Ha” nuggets of information along the way.”
