In the Spring 2012 MBA session, we will be offering an exciting course as part of our Healthcare Systems Management courses that only comes around once a year – HC508 Management of Information & Technology in Health Care – with Mr. Ravi Ahuja.  This course is extremely relevant as healthcare administrators deal with the intricacies of healthcare records and more being converted to computerized format.  The course will include guest speakers who are working administrators in healthcare such as Robert Begliomin, LVHN, Georgine Olexa, Good Shepard, John Grencer, Gpod Shepard Rehab, and more.  The course will be offered on location at Lehigh Valley Hospital on Wednesday nights.  Not a Healthcare Systems Management student?  You can still take the course!  All of our part-time MBA students are eligible to take this course as an elective if their concentration is something other than Healthcare Systems Management.
