MAJOR: Healthcare Systems Management
This course provides an introduction to Healthcare Delivery Systems and is required for students in the AAS, Medical Coding and Billing (MCB) degree, and in the BS, Health Systems Management (HSM) degree. Whether you know a little or a lot about the degree you’ve chosen, in this post 1) identify if you are an MCB or HSM major, then 2) explain the role(s)MCB or HSM plays in the healthcare field by giving examples of MCB and HSM in the healthcare workplace ( role(s) you know of, have heard of –you may search the internet, also). When you reply to your fellow students’ posts, do you agree with their posts, why or why not? Did they list some examples you didn’t list, that might be an eventual job source for you and why?
