Scott Campbell, one of our adjunct faculty members, is currently completing the development of a course titled "Healthcare Delivery Models." This highly interactive and completely relevant course will be available fully online in a 12-week term starting in October!!!
As Scott stated, "Health care delivery systems are evolving with new models that cut across the continuum of care being developed. This evolution is being driven by a number of factors including the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, continuing pressure to provide care in a more cost-effective model, a growing emphasis on managing the health of a population over time rather than through episodic care, and an understanding that maintaining and improving health status is the key to the future of health care. There is a need for a course that looks at these evolving systems and the forces that are changing health care delivery. Health care administrators in the future will be expected to operate health care organizations in response to these changes."
Watch for more information to come about this new course!
