MBA 789 • 2 Credits • 7 Weeks • Typically Offered: Spring
This course provides a foundational understanding of our complex health system, from basic organization and management of the system to an exploration of the relationships between cost, quality, and access in the context of system improvement and health care reform. We will take a policy perspective as we explore influential factors on health care resource challenges such as paying for care, supplying an adequate workforce, and application of technology to health care advances, and we will explore the various competing goals, priorities, and perspectives of the many participants in the health care arena. We will consider perspectives across the care continuum, from prevention to end-of-life care.
