What is innovation in health care?
Innovation in health care refers to the development of new policies, methods, systems and tools for providing care and reducing related risks. It also includes novel delivery methods that help innovations reach patients.
Innovation has always driven health care forward, from the standardization of handwashing to telemedicine. As the pace of technological development continues to increase, the health care industry needs qualified professionals to lead change efforts and minimize disruption.
What is a BAS vs. a BS?
A BAS is a Bachelor of Applied Science degree, which builds on an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree previously earned at a community college. It prioritizes practical experience and career-focused education. A Bachelor of Science degree is similar in the subject matter covered, but often places more emphasis on theory.
Students earning an AAS degree often have a specific field or career path in mind. They choose to pursue a degree focused on preparing them for the workplace. However, you may want to extend your education to build more knowledge and expertise. This is when the BAS degree becomes especially valuable.
