The rapidly evolving healthcare system presents the healthcare administrator with complex challenges and risks. Healthcare administrators must be able to assess external and internal healthcare policies in order to improve organizational design and delivery of healthcare services. Healthcare Legal and Ethical Considerations focuses on the laws and regulations developed by policymakers that impact the healthcare organizations. Students review key laws that govern patient care delivery, employee relations, contracts, and fraud. Also examined are the ethical underpinnings and principles that healthcare organizations and administrators follow in the delivery of services to patients.
