The healthcare industry is going through sweeping changes due to government regulations and technology improvements causing the organizations to focus even more on compliance, efficiencies, and revenue management. During this time of exciting change the industry is demanding skilled employees who can collect, manage and analyze healthcare data.
This provides the Healthcare Administrative Specialist opportunities to improve quality and coverage in healthcare by lowering costs, maximizing efficiencies, and playing a role in patient safety. This degree is the business and compliance side of healthcare. The program prepares you for the high demand careers where you work with patient information and technology; you leave as a specialist in medical office tasks, medical records, revenue cycle management and customer service skills.
I came to this course with no medical background. After just one semester the medical world no longer seemed like a mystery. This program is well laid out. The instructor has taken care in where specific classes are placed within the program to insure that the student is successful in retaining the information. The information presented in each class is relevant and interesting. The class sizes are small enough to be comfortable and large enough to make discussions interesting and diverse. The instructor(s) are easy to reach and always willing to help with any questions a student can come up with. I highly recommend this program to both traditional and non-traditional students.
I worked in the the Healthcare field for many years. Serving in multiple positions I gained on the job experience beginning as a "Nurse Assistant". I transitioned over time to mainly clerical positions, such as medical records, unit secretary, private practice offices, administrative assistant. However, over the last 10 years I was fortunate enough to work at home. Now, I have decided to return to work. I was shocked when I discovered how much things have changed over that time. Investigating my options with the assistance of the many programs available through CLC has led me to the HIS AAS program. I thoroughly enjoy the faculty and environment here at CLC. I am confident that I will graduate fully equipped to re-enter the healthcare industry with a thorough knowledge of the skills in demand.

Skilled people go further faster. Regardless of where you want to go in life and your future career, starting with CLC will help get you there.
My education at CLC, specifically in the Healthcare Administrative Specialist program, opened many doors for me. It provided me with exposure to many different aspects of the medical field, which allowed me to look at a wide range of entry level positions. The instructors and advisors have real world experience and so much more knowledge than textbooks alone can offer. My advisor, Sue Bremer, helped me find an internship which turned into a full-time job. I've been with this company for 2 years now and absolutely love what I do.
My experience at CLC was wonderful, and I speak highly of the quality of a CLC education and the excellence of its educators to anyone who will listen.
