CAHME Program Requirements (III.D.1 and III.D.2) call for ongoing program evaluation to assess student competency attainment and ensure continuous quality improvement of the teaching and learning environment. As Learning Management Systems (LMS) evolve, Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) programs which include both online and on campus platforms, faculty must review the opportunities presented by this evolution while at the same time strive for consistency across both learning platforms.
In this poster, the authors describe the approach developed at a major, private urban university to create the Consistency Across the Program (CAP) that provides a platform for faculty to align course content and evaluate outcomes across both online and on campus platforms, utilizing dashboard data to inform and measure that intervention. Building off the Yes we CARD! Program, which uses dashboards to provide data to assess MHA competency attainment, the objective of CAP is continuous quality improvement across platforms through evaluation of course content, course evaluations, and student learning outcomes, while maintaining compliance with MHA competencies. Obtaining this objective allows the faculty to maintain the consistency of One Program across Two Delivery Platforms.
