Abstract

The Commission on the Accreditation of Management Health Education (CAHME) is the accrediting body for graduate programs in Health Care Administration (HCA) in the U.S. CAHME accredited programs must adopt one of several competency models as the foundation for their HCA curriculum. This article looks at problems and opportunities associated with the implementation of EMRs in health care. We then use force field analysis to illustrate how graduate competency models can work in training graduate healthcare administration students to address technology challenges. Integrating both cognitive and affective domains into graduate curricula has proven to be challenging, however, competency areas such as leadership, professionalism, business skills, communication and relationship management, and knowledge of the health care environment are directly relevant to management challenges faced by administrators in implementing EMRs.
