PCC ID: 16067
Name: PCC Proposal to Establish a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Leading and Managing Healthcare Transformation
Proposed: 09/12/2017
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: The Robert H. Smith School of Business proposes to establish a 12-credit Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Leading and Managing Healthcare Transformation. In 2015, total spending on healthcare reached a staggering $3 trillion. Yet, despite extraordinary expenditure, the US healthcare system suffers from significant deficiencies with respect to both healthcare quality and cost. The healthcare sector is exceedingly volatile. As landmark legislation such as the Affordable Care Act of 2010 has fundamentally altered the healthcare landscape, policy makers and executives are increasingly concerned about the quality and cost of health care delivery. The health care industry is constantly coping with change, from the rise of pay-for-performance reimbursement practices to the evolving nature of the consumer market. Against this backdrop of transformational change, healthcare executives, administrators, and providers need a new set of knowledge, skills, and competencies to develop strategies and practices that will aid them in successfully navigating the constantly changing healthcare landscape.
