Attachment PROG 8A PROGRAM APPLICATION SUMMARY EVALUATION REPORT Carteret Community College Healthcare Business Informatics (A25510)

I. Program Planning Carteret Community College (CCC) is seeking approval for the Healthcare Business Informatics (A25510) program to begin Spring 2014. The planning area is defined as the college’s service area of Carteret County. All colleges were notified of the planning process for this program. The proposed program was approved by the Board of Trustees at Carteret Community College on August 13, 2013. Minutes from this Board meeting were attached to the program application. The President and the Board of Trustees of Carteret Community College have certified the following: 

The proposed program will enhance the workforce of North Carolina, will provide educational and training opportunities consistent with the mission of the college, and will not duplicate the opportunities currently offered.



They have assessed the need for the proposed program and the resources required to maintain a viable program and certify that the college can operate the proposed program efficiently and effectively within the resources available to the college.



The college will complete a program accountability report including student success measures, enrollment trends, completion rates, and employment data three years after implementation of the program.

II. Program Rationale Carteret Community College indicates the following: 

Businesses in the service area of CCC have indicated a need to hire graduates who are well versed in Healthcare Business Informatics. Letters and e-mails of support for the proposed program were submitted to CCC by the Carteret County Economic Development Council, Carteret Vision Center, GirlTalk & Gynecology, and Carteret General Hospital.



Due to new regulations by the Federal Electronic Medical Records Mandate, healthcare providers will be required to keep electronic health records. As a result of this mandate the healthcare providers in Carteret County will need access to employees who are educated and trained with the skills needed to install programs, manage data, archive/retrieve data, and design and support systems for the medical information system.



The Employment Security Commission of North Carolina reports that in 2013 there were 1,180 jobs in medical records and other related fields in the state.

According to an online job search conducted by CCC in September, there were 27 job openings in the college’s service area.



In addition to traditional job opportunities, it is noted that a career in Healthcare Business Informatics is especially suitable for self-employment.



Upon graduation, students will possess the necessary proficiencies to work at local healthcare facilities providing the different aspects of healthcare business informatics, including healthcare informatics, systems analysis, networking technology, computer/network security, data warehousing, archiving and retrieval of information, and healthcare computer infrastructure support.



According to a recent survey conducted by CCC, 42 out of 57 students taking computer related courses, showed an interest in enrolling in the proposed program.



The college is planning to use current faculty members to teach in courses in the Healthcare Business Informatics program. There are sufficient hardware, software, and labs already in place to support the program.

Attachment PROG 8B PROGRAM APPLICATION SUMMARY EVALUATION REPORT Southwestern Community College Occupational Therapy Assistant (A45500) I. Program Planning Southwestern Community College is seeking approval for the Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) (A45500) program to begin Spring 2014. The planning area is defined as the college’s service area of Jackson, Macon and Swain counties. All colleges were notified of the planning process for this program. The proposed program was approved by the Board of Trustees at Southwestern Community College on April 30, 2013. Minutes from this Board meeting were attached to the program application. The President and the Board of Trustees of Southwestern Community College have certified the following: 

The proposed program will enhance the workforce of North Carolina, will provide educational and training opportunities consistent with the mission of the college, and will not duplicate the opportunities currently offered.



They have assessed the need for the proposed program and the resources required to maintain a viable program and certify that the college can operate the proposed program efficiently and effectively within the resources available to the college.



The college will complete a program accountability report including student success measures, enrollment trends, completion rates, and employment data three years after implementation of the program.

II. Program Rationale Southwestern Community College indicates the following: 

According to the 2010 Census, twenty-eight percent of the population in Jackson, Macon and Swain counties are age 50 and older. Aging populations are at risk for illness and injury such as stroke and hip fractures. Short-term rehabilitation stays in local skilled nursing facilities requires care provided by physical and occupational therapy professionals.



The Center for Disease Control indicates that one in thirty-three children will be born with some type of birth defect, which will require the services of an occupational therapy professional.



Eleven students enrolled at the college this fall are registered in preparatory classes in anticipation of the program beginning in 2014.

SBCC 10/18/2013

Attachment PROG 8B 

An employer survey completed within the college’s service area determined the following: ten jobs currently available, fourteen jobs available in 2015 and fourteen jobs available in 2018.



According to area hospital personnel, occupational therapy assistant positions are remaining vacant due to the lack of trained professionals for the positions. Southwestern Community College’s Occupational Therapy Assistant advisory committee affirmed the need. The Occupational Therapists reported they had OTA positions which were unfilled for over a year and in some cases are no longer posting OTA positions.



According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment rate of OTA’s has increased by 4.6 percent in North Carolina from 2011-2012. This annual rate for North Carolina is slightly higher than national predictions from the Occupational Handbook which forecasts employment of Occupational Therapy Assistants is expected to increase by forty-three percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.”

III. Impact of the Proposed Program on Other Programs Five community colleges are approved to offer the Occupational Therapy Assistant program. An impact assessment was sent to each college. No negative impact responses were received.

IV. Implementation of Collaborative Plan Not Applicable

V. Curriculum Design The proposed program of study is in compliance with the State Board approved curriculum standard.
