About

The healthcare tetralogy specialization is intended for anyone interested in healthcare organization as practiced in the United States. A range of healthcare organizations are discussed (e.g., medical, dental, pharmaceutical, and public health). 

The specialization is particularly useful to anyone working in the healthcare industry who either has:

  • a developing interest in the issues important to the administration of healthcare organization operations; 
  • some expertise, but wishes an overview or refresher of the issues. 

However, those who do not work in the healthcare industry, but who interact with healthcare organizations of any type as patients/consumers will also find the specialization informative. 

Through the four courses in the Healthcare Organization Operations offered by Coursera in partnership with Rutgers the State University of New Jersey, you will cover many aspects of healthcare organization operations including the relationship between healthcare organizations and the health system as well as health care delivery, business process management, and quality improvement within healthcare organizations. Upon completion of the specialization, those who interact with healthcare organizations as patients/consumers will have a better understanding of the issues involved in the effective administration of healthcare organizations and operations. 

Those working in the healthcare industry, upon completion of the specialization, will be better able to contribute to the effective administration of the healthcare organization’s operations.
