This was a great overview of the healthcare sector and establishing an understanding of payment models that are not discussed in medical school. Visual aids helped to discuss and display concepts.
Very well organised. Key concepts were explained clearly with graphics and examples. Good to obtain understanding of the fundamentals of health care delivery in the US and the insurance market.

Course was well designed and comprehensive. I was able to fill gaps I'd had on the health care industry with the content they provided. Would appreciate updates that reflect the ACA and post-ACA environment, including full-risk based provider groups, value-based insurance design and demands for price transparency in age of digital health.

Quality course with a decent over view. Could use some updateing as much of patient care and outpatient procedures have expanded agressively over the past few years. Some updates or additions discussing the trend towards Ambulatory Surgery Centers and specialty hospitals along with finaincial discussions would be great.

This course gives a pretty good overview of how the American Healthcare system came into being. However, the lectures in week 4 were not as helpful, as they seemed to only provide general information on the Antitrust laws, but not much discussion on how they have impacted the healthcare industry specifically.
par Carlos A H•
Instruction was very good for most part; however, certain areas of improvement remain such as clarity of instruction. For example, if the costs for hospices are increasing in the first few days and the graph shows costs decreasing on the graph this discrepancy leads to confusion for the learner.

Great overview of the healthcare system, I wish we went more into economics which I didn't feel like we really dove into until Week 4 (and thought that we could have dove into even more technically) like the financial aspects!

This course is a very good introduction to various aspects of the economics of HCD. The lectures a crisp and short. The pace is comfortable and the graphics very useful.
par LU Y•
Content is too general and covers too little. Lack of any in-depth analysis regarding the linkage between economics theory and the healthcare system.
par Yang L•
Great overview about the payment system for health care! But it has too many theories that I don't know how I can apply to real practice.
par Holly M•
A thorough analysis of healthcare economics. By far the most useful healthcare-related business course I have taken so far.
par SHANNON Y•
More theory and history than practical or hands on, but fills in blanks in the field with general knowledge.
par Yadi W•
Could design a few modeling or calculation question to test students' knowledge on the pricing concepts.
par Adrien G•
Might need to be updated with more recent numbers. Otherwise, really clear and efficient course!!
par Swati K•
Great course that highlights the factors that govern the US healthcare system
