Managing in a Changing Healthcare Environment
As Vermont and the nation grapple with healthcare reform, providers and managers are left to interpret and implement constantly evolving priorities, policies and practices. Clearly, the shifting political, economic, and social landscape affects how healthcare is delivered – and to whom. But what does that mean in day-to-day practice? How might such changes affect various stakeholders: consumers, employers, providers, insurers, regulators, and public policymakers?
As a professional, how can you better understand the impact of emerging federal and state healthcare policies? How might cost, quality and access be affected? How can you manage all of these changes? What tools and strategies can you use?
The University of Vermont’s Certificate in Healthcare Management can provide you with the skills to become a successful leader in navigating this rapidly changing healthcare environment. You may come to the program with or without experience as a manager or clinician; you’ll leave with an invaluable base of knowledge and skills to position you for leadership.
