Healthcare Org 2, 1.06 (R) [INFO] Welcome and Course Overview

Welcome to the course!

Whether you are auditing this course or enrolled for the certificate in this course, you should find the information in this section helpful. If you are auditing, thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy your visit and decide to enroll for the certificate at some point. If you are a certificate learner, I look forward to working with you! Thank you for enrolling for the certificate. This section contains a general introduction to the course. It asks and answers the following questions: What is a brief summary of the course? What are the course objectives? What is needed to successfully complete the work for the certificate? What is the educational philosophy of the course? Is this course part of a specialization? What are the course rules for certificate learners?

1\. What is a brief summary of the course? Have you ever decided you need health care treatment and thought that there must be better ways to deliver health care? For example, have you found yourself thinking that there should be a way to get a diagnostic test or treatment at home? Or do you work in a healthcare organization and find yourself thinking that there must be better ways to deliver health care? If you have, this course is for you. This course is for you if you are interested in the world of health care delivery by healthcare organizations in the United States. Course content includes an overview of health care delivery including healthcare consumerism, the patient's perspective, health care delivery for sickness and treatment, as well as health care delivery for health and wellness. The course is suitable for those with a developing interest in healthcare organization operations as they pertain to health care delivery. It is also suitable for those who have some expertise, but who wish an overview or refresher of these topics

2\. What are the course objectives? Course content includes an overview of health care delivery including healthcare consumerism, the patient's perspective, health care delivery for sickness and treatment, as well as health care delivery for health and wellness. Upon successful completion of this course, a learner will have a better understanding of health care delivery processes and issues in healthcare organizations. Learners working within a healthcare organization will be better able to contribute to the efficient and effective processes of the health care delivery system within their organization. They will be able to undertake and improve healthcare administration and management responsibilities related to health care delivery processes within their organization.

3\. What is needed to successfully complete the work for the certificate? At the beginning of this course is a section entitled [INFO] INSTRUCTOR RECOMMENDED FAST-TRACK PATHWAY TO CERTIFICATE - Reading: [INFO] STEP-BY-STEP PATHWAY TO THE CERTIFICATE which is a step-by-step instructor recommended (what I would do) 12-step pathway to successfully complete work required to obtain the certificate as quickly and efficiently as possible.

4\. What is the educational philosophy of the course? The course format and philosophy are a little different from most of the other Coursera courses. Most of the Coursera courses present course content primarily through video lectures. This course presents course content through [INFO] readings (text). Links to optional [FUN] material external to the course are included in the text. The philosophy behind the use of reading content is that a reading provides a more direct relationship between the learner and the content than does a video lecture of someone telling the learner about the content. The readings also allow the use of links to resources and additional content external to the course. These links allow learners to create their own learning pathway and customize their learning experience in a way that the video lecture does not. The links make full use of the fact that the course is delivered online.

5\. Is this course part of a specialization? Yes, this course is one course in the four-course Healthcare Organization Operations specialization. The four courses are: Healthcare Organizations and the Health System Health Care Delivery in Healthcare Organizations Business Process Management in Healthcare Organizations Quality Improvement in Healthcare Organizations Each course is a stand-alone course; the courses do not build on each other - they complement each other. No one course in the specialization is a prerequisite for another course. If you choose to enroll in all four courses to receive the specialization certificate, the courses can be completed in any order

6\. What are the course rules for certificate learners?

The course rules are simple. Work hard! Have fun! Never hesitate to ask a question!
