You may already be working in the healthcare industry but are interested in taking your career to the next level. Or, maybe you already know you want to be a leader in your field. With an online degree in healthcare management, you can choose between two options: quality and patient safety or informatics.
With a focus on quality and patient safety, you'll be at the forefront of establishing and upholding healthcare standards and managing patient safety issues. If you choose the informatics option, you'll be focused on gathering and reporting medical information to providers, insurers, and accreditation agencies.
Whichever option you choose, you'll be making an impact in the healthcare industry, patients' lives, and our society. And with this online program, you can get started anywhere on your timeline.
