Healthcare Management Technology - A25200

Instructional Service Agreement with Pitt Community College

The Healthcare Management Technology (HMT) curriculum is designed to prepare students for employment in healthcare business and financial operations. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the application of management principles to the healthcare environment.

The curriculum places emphasis on planning, organizing, directing, and controlling tasks related to healthcare organizational objectives including the legal and ethical environment of the healthcare industry; integration of team building skills, critical analysis of financial operations associated with third-party billing and reimbursement; and database management. Emphasis is placed on the development of effective supervisory skills.

The Healthcare Management Technology program is designed to teach students the business of healthcare and consists of both traditional and nontraditional students. Our nontraditional students include both administrative and clinical-oriented people. The clinical students, ex. nurses, and lab technicians have entered the program so that they can learn the business and management side of healthcare. The knowledge obtained in the HMT program will allow the nontraditional students, who are already working in healthcare facilities, to advance into supervisory or management positions. The traditional student will obtain both knowledge in the classroom as well as experience through the field training portion of the program which will allow them to be more marketable upon graduation.
