Certificate description:
The Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Project Management educates healthcare providers and workers in healthcare-specific project management. The certificate provides the cross-professional training needed to enable health and health workers of all levels of medical/health qualification to better manage projects needed to improve care quality and decrease healthcare costs. Beginning with supported Electronic Health Record (EHR) adoption and Meaningful Use and proceeding to value-based reimbursement, the healthcare industry has become increasingly focused on projectized, operational improvements. This focus has exacerbated the need for formally trained project managers, projected to grow as much as 79% over the next eight years. Students in the certificate program will gain a basic knowledge of issues in healthcare project management and competence with skills, techniques, and tools used for effective, safe, complaint, healthcare project management.
