Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) - Population Health

Format: Online

Program Description:

In the United States and around the world, healthcare delivery faces challenges from the increasing needs of an aging population, rising healthcare costs, and economic inefficiences. Healthcare professionals who focus on population health aim to address these issues by supporting preventive care initatives, reducing healthcare inequities, and promoting longevity within specific, predetermined groups of people through social outreach and other targeted methods.

Build the core competencies and specialized professional and career skills you need to lead and manage complex, population-based healthcare initiatives and programs and drive healthcare innovations that can produce measurable clinical and economic values. In this specialization, you can gain a comprehensive foundation in the essentials of population health—such as the role of coordinated care and disease management to reduce inefficiencies and close gaps in the delivery of care, socioeconomic factors of disease, new care-delivery structures, data analytics, and determining community and population health needs.
