Free Online Lectures and Courses for Healthcare Administration

Healthcare Administration Content Navigation

A successful healthcare system relies on a the coordinated efforts of many professionals. Doctors, specialists, nurses, and individuals not directly involved in the delivery of healthcare — such as billing, coding, and finance professionals — provide intricately related services. Thankfully, the entire academic arena of healthcare administration is dedicated to organizing and continually improving the industry. Students can preview this dynamic field through an array of free online healthcare administration courses.

Administrators are charged with both day-to-day decisions and long-term business strategies. Some are responsible for policy decisions, others for department management and others take on human resources too, all wrapped into one job description. The nature of this dynamic profession ensures no two days will be the same.

The Princeton Review describes healthcare administrators as those who coordinate the delivery of care and assist in the management of health facilities. Sometimes called medical and health services managers or healthcare executives, the role of these professionals will vary depending on the size and type of the healthcare organization.

According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS). healthcare administrators might manage an entire facility or oversee a specific clinical area or department, such as nursing, surgery, physical therapy, cardiology, or gerontology. A nursing home administrator might be tasked with staff management, admissions, finances, facility administration and providing care to residents. A bigger hospital will have subsets of managers or assistant administrators in specific departments.

The bachelor’s curriculum for a healthcare administration degree will encompass a breadth of classes relating to management for the practice, skills, and attitudes of healthcare organizations. Many programs also ask students to apply their newly acquired knowledge in an internship or practicum experience.

The following courses are required for healthcare administration bachelor’s programs around the country:

  • Healthcare Law
  • Healthcare Employment Law
  • Intro to Healthcare Organizations
  • Healthcare Supervision
  • Healthcare Information Systems
  • Management and Organizational Behavior
  • Healthcare Human Resources
  • Healthcare Finance
  • Healthcare Quality Improvement and Patient Care
  • Psychology of Aging
  • Healthcare for the Elderly
  • Ambulatory Care Services: Organization and Administration
  • Public and Community Health
  • Healthcare Ethics
  • Contemporary Issues in Public Safety
  • Concepts and Issues in Public Planning
  • Healthcare Administration History, Culture, and Language
  • Statistical Methods for Health Science Research

Students who pursue healthcare degrees at the graduate level will see increased options for specialization. Most often, students can focus in areas that match certain kinds of medical or healthcare facilities, such as mental health centers, group medical practices, or hospitals.

In addition, students at certain universities can pursue specialized master s degrees that combine healthcare administration with another complementary field. Master of Health Services Administration degrees are geared toward the organization, financing, marketing, and management of health care institutions. Those who enroll in Master of Public Health programs, which take a more holistic approach to all the factors that influence healthcare, often find work in the public sector. Some schools even offer an MBA in Healthcare Administration that incorporate much-needed business skills into the curriculum.

The BLS states that a bachelor’s in healthcare administration is typically the minimum requirement for positions in the healthcare sector, but most entry-level employees come equipped with at least a master s in healthcare administration. There are many different associate degrees with a focus in healthcare administration, but most entry-level positions would require the student to transfer their associate credits to obtain a four-year degree. A Ph.D. in healthcare administration enables administrators to pursue teaching, researcher, or consultant roles.

While a bachelor’s or master’s degree program is the most common educational pathway to the profession, those with healthcare experience may be able to advance into the profession through on-the-job experience, or experience coupled with an associate in healthcare administration or a certificate in the field. For example, a nurse or physical therapist might have a credential from the field, and then advance into a management position over-time.

Ideal Candidates for Healthcare

Professionals need a variety of skills to succeed in this fast-paced, complex industry. The BLS suggests strong analytical skills are important for understanding and adapting to changing regulations. Strong interpersonal and communication skills are critical since an administrator must work effectively with a variety of health professionals. Detail-oriented problem solvers will also have a leg up in the field.

Employment of medical and health services managers is expected to grow 22 percent from 2010 to 2020. Demand will be greatest in areas that serve the aging generation of baby boomers, such as nursing care administrators.

Pay varies a lot depending on organization size, but it is a generally well-paid profession: in May 2010, the median salary for medical and health services managers was $84,270. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $52,000 and the top 10 percent earned more than $144,000, according to the BLS.

Use this guide as a jumping off point in your research into the field. Shadow a professional, spend time volunteering and talk to university admissions or guidance counselors to figure out the best academic pathway for reaching your career goals.

Refresher programs help nurses return to work

Are you ready to return to nursing after some time away, but feel you need to brush up on your skills before treating patients again? Many registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) are finding the education and support they need to reenter nursing by enrolling in a refresher program.

Offered through colleges and hospitals, nurse refresher programs are designed for RNs and LPNs who have been out of the field for at least three years. Whether your current nursing license is inactive or lapsed, your state board of nursing requires you to take a nurse refresher course to return to active status.

There tends to be a lot of anxiety among nurses reentering the field, says Scott Gross, director of Science Technology and Professional Programs at Cal State San Marcos Extended Studies, which offers a 10-week RN refresher certificate. They are returning to a different world where many of their duties, such as dispensing medications and charting, are now computerized.

For Sue Kuhns, who had been out of nursing for 14 years, the San Marcos refresher program, which combines classroom instruction with a clinical practicum, was a chance to renew her skills and reconnect with other nurses.

We went through the program in a cohort group and supported each other every step of the way, says Kuhns, who worked as a nurse for 11 years before taking time off to raise her children.

The San Marcos program costs $2,399. Gross says the college and a local hospital are working out an agreement whereby the hospital will cover half the program expenses of students who accept jobs at the hospital. Students now meet tuition costs by taking out student loans or by using tuition reimbursement offered by their current employers. Other students use signing bonuses to recoup tuition costs.

The University of Delaware and South Carolina s Beaufort Memorial Hospital are two examples of colleges that allows students to take RN refresher courses from home, with the latter offering a four-month online refresher course for both RNs and LPNs.

Refreshers as recruitment tools

Like other medical centers across the country, Maui Memorial Medical Center uses a refresher program to help recruit and retain RNs and LPNs. The weeklong program, which was open to any nurse in the area, included training in wound care, respiratory and vascular therapies, infection control, pain management, dialysis patient care and documentation.

The medical part of nursing stays the same but the equipment, medications and therapies change every couple of years, says Marianne Vasquez, RN, BSN, MEd, CDE, the facility s clinical education coordinator.

As part of the program, the hospital set up various skill stations where nurses learned how to use new equipment. Vasquez says nurses gave the program, which cost $300 to attend, such high marks that the hospital is planning to offer the training again next year.

Ready for a refresh?

Here are some tips for finding a nurse refresher program:

  • Check with local nursing association chapters and your state board of nursing. As a state government agency, the board of nursing regulates the state s Nurse Practice Act, determines the requirements necessary to maintain active status and approves nurse refresher courses.
  • Contact state and community colleges.
  • Call area hospitals to see if they offer or can recommend a refresher program.

RehabCare Group settles federal suit for $30 million

Updated with company’s statement at 10:15 a.m.

RehabCare Group Inc. has agreed to pay $30 million to resolve government allegations that it paid kickbacks to gain access to Medicare and Medicaid patients in Missouri nursing homes.

As part of the civil settlement, which the Justice Department announced Wednesday, RehabCare Group also agreed to restructure its business arrangement with certain business partners.

According to the Justice Department, between 2006 and 2011 RehabCare Group arranged to obtain Rehab Systems of Missouri’s contracts to provide therapy to patients residing in 60 nursing homes controlled by Rehab Systems majority-owner James Lincoln. In exchange for these referrals, RehabCare allegedly paid Rehab Systems $400,000 to $600,000 upfront and also allowed Rehab Systems to retain a percentage of the revenue generated by each referral.

Justice Department officials also accused RehabCare of filing false Medicare and Medicaid claims and of making or using false records or statements to support those claims.

The federal anti-kickback statute, which forbids paying others for referrals of Medicare and Medicaid patients, is used as a tool in fighting health care fraud and holding down costs in federal health programs.

Federal officials also say it encourages providers to make health care decisions based on what’s in the best interest of patients, rather than the best financial interests of a nursing home or therapy company.

RehabCare was previously based in Clayton. In 2011 RehabCare was purchased by Kindred Healthcare Inc. in Louisville, Ky.

The case began in 2007 as a whistle-blower lawsuit, filed under seal by a RehabCare competitor, Minnesota-based Health Dimensions Rehabilitation Inc. RehabCare had contracts with about 50 nursing homes in Minnesota.

After conducting an investigation, the Justice Department decided in December 2011 to join the lawsuit. The case was transferred to the U.S. District Court in St. Louis because most of the relevant events took place in Missouri and key witnesses were located here.

As part of the settlement, the whistle-blower will receive $700,000 as its share of the recovery in this case.

“As part of this agreement, RehabCare denies all liability but is pleased to have reached a compromise that allows all parties to put this issue behind them,” Kindred spokeswoman Susan Moss said in a written statement. “In Kindred’s previous SEC filings, this matter had been disclosed and the company had set aside appropriate reserves.”
