Healthcare Tech Management Program at MCC

mcc 02 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (6/25/13) – Madisonville Community College (MCC) will begin offering an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree program in Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) in the fall semester.
The profession of Healthcare Technology Management involves the care of medical equipment and systems to ensure they are safe and effective for patient use. HTM students will be trained on how to repair, maintain, and manage all types of medical technologies and systems. The title “Healthcare Technology Management” is the replacement name for the long-standing occupational name of “Biomedical Equipment Technology.”
 
Previously, the sole duty of a Biomedical Equipment Technician was that of performing repairs and maintenance on medical equipment. Today, they are involved in all aspects of medical technology throughout its entire life-cycle. This includes such areas as equipment planning and acquisition, acceptance testing, routine maintenance and performance testing, conducting repairs, training others on how to properly use the technology, responding to product recalls, and removal and disposal of the technology.
 
The Healthcare Technology Management program is primarily composed of 17 HTM classes in addition to several courses in computer and information technology. Besides the AAS degree, students can earn five certificates as they progress through the program courses including a certificate in “Foundations in Healthcare Technology Networking Systems.” The certificates may also be acquired without pursuing the degree. All HTM classes will be delivered online and lab courses associated with one or more HTM classes will be conducted on campus using a one-day-a-week scheduling approach. This will allow those from outside the local area to reasonably take advantage of this program.
 
For more information about the new Healthcare Technology Management program, please contact Joey Jones, HTM Program Coordinator, at 270-824-1759.
