Course Description

Healthcare Strategy

Throughout Health Care Strategy, you’ll explore the complex and rapidly changing healthcare ecosystem; its players; and the dynamic economic, demographic, and political factors that are driving this change. You’ll explore the various components of this system and their roles, including patients, care providers, entities that pay for health care, entities that develop health care, and the government. We’ll examine how these organizations work and how they are changing, and look at the challenges and opportunities for the system, and organizations within the system.
