Management of Healthcare Delivery Systems
As the reshaped American healthcare system shifts to preventive medicine and embraces managed care concepts, there is an on-going struggle to create a cost effective system without eroding the high standard of quality care that has been set. As a foundation, the students study the organization and structure of our healthcare system and options that pave the way for the emerging one. Merging theoretical constructs and practical application, students develop an understanding of the healthcare workplace and how to become effective and ethical providers, managers, decision makers, and analysts.
