HISTORY OF HTHU
HomeTown Health University was established in September 2005, as the educational arm of HomeTown Health, LLC. With the vision to provide much needed business office education to rural hospitals, online curriculum was developed to educate business office staff on the most critical topics. HomeTown Health received grant funding through the HRSA FLEX grant that enabled all critical access hospitals in Georgia to receive free online education for the first 90 days, resulting in the enrollment of over 200 students by the end of the first week. The growth and interest in www.hthu.net has continued at a steady pace. As the healthcare industry changes and CMS issues new rules, regulations and standard procedures in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements and patient quality initiatives, HTHU continues to add effective, relevant course curriculum.
