A growing field in high demand
The need for professionals to manage growing and complex medical groups and related organizations has created a high demand for professionally trained healthcare administrators. Alvernia University’s Bachelor of Science degree in Healthcare Administration program prepares students to pursue job opportunities in a wide variety of career options in this growing and popular field. The duties of a healthcare administrator can be complex and varied, requiring a mix of business administration skills, knowledge of medical services and understanding of local, state and federal regulations that govern the healthcare industry and related insurance industry.
Healthcare administrators work to minimize costs and maximize efficiencies, while providing the best possible services. You’ll need to stay ahead of changing federal and state laws that govern healthcare, and may oversee functions related to medical records and billing, create work schedules and supervise other areas of business.
