MBA 65100 - Healthcare Systems


(1) Healthcare delivery in the US does not comprise a single system, but rather a complex series of systems that both compliment and compete with each other. This course analyzes the structures and functions of healthcare delivery in the US, and compares and contrasts it to healthcare delivery around the world. The industry has identified four levels of delivery systems: the patient, the care team, the organization, and the environment. 

Students will examine “systems thinking”, a framework used to recognize and address complex problems while identifying and minimizing potential unintended consequences of reactive solutions. This course will explore collaborative and dynamic processes, as well as applying sudden and dramatic interventions with creative problem solving. Offered: Spring.
