What you'll learn

The Master of Health Administration prepares leaders and aspiring leaders in the health sector by providing the competencies necessary to drive the future of healthcare through effective facilitation of cross-system transformation and the improvement of health outcomes for patients, populations, and providers. Areas of inquiry include industry and organizational dynamics, visioning the future, forming strategic relationships, leading with authenticity, creating a sustainable personal legacy, and transformation and execution in diverse health system contexts.

As the health industry continues to undergo unprecedented growth, "health" is beginning to encompass everything from patient care to community engagement to overarching system design.  The curricular framework for the newest version of the MHA is provided by the industry standard American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). The program provides UOPX students with an academically- rigorous and integrated experience that requires both critical thinking and creativity, while remaining aligned to professional and industry standards.

The concentration in Health Care Informatics presents informatics as the strategic acquisition, interpretation and utilization of data to lead organizations in the health sector. The focus of the program is on informatics as an evolving and interdisciplinary field related to the sourcing, compiling and synthesis of data across the health sector. Topics include staffing to meet an organization's informatics needs, assessing the interoperability of systems, effectively sourcing data from repositories within and outside the organization, and presenting data in health organization contexts. Also presented are emerging best practices administrators need to successfully address quality, safety, and cost of care, and lead data-driven initiatives that place the patient/consumer at the center of care.
