As the healthcare system moves towards value and reimbursement models linked to quality, there is an increased focus on patient safety and quality of care and the overall need for system redesign. The Jefferson College of Population Health has developed two programs to help healthcare leaders confront these new challenges.
The Healthcare Quality & Safety program prepares national and international healthcare professionals for leadership positions in quality and safety by leveraging new skills in policy, measurement, analysis, change management, and others. Likewise, our Population Health program prepares leaders to examine the social determinants of health and to evaluate, develop, and implement health policies and systems that will improve the health of populations.
With our new partnership with the National Association for Healthcare Quality (NAHQ), active members who also hold the Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality® (CPHQ) credential can enter either program with a reduced course load and tuition discount.
