Population Health

An examination of how health care delivery systems, community-based organizations, public health agencies, and others work together to create policies and interventions to improve the health outcomes of a population. This focus shifts the economic model from that of a "sick system" to a system of prevention and patient engagement. Topics in this course include rural health, education, risk, stratification of populations, and others, with a focus on the ethical issues and economic impacts of population health perspectives. Restricted to online MBA program students.
