The main goals of this course are to educate you in identifying the most effective ways to organize, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care; reduce medical errors; and improve patient safety. You will learn about three major aspects of health care: the effectiveness and quality of the care, access to care, and its cost. Data sources and methods (e.g., program evaluation, qualitative research, and survey research) which are used to evaluate the effects and outcomes of the health care system on people’s health will also be introduced in the course.
