2017-2018 Graduate Catalog

MANA 72410 Health Care in the U.S.

This course introduces the intricacies of the health industry that represents 17% of US GDP, and growing. Rather than an in-depth study of one particular segment, the topics are selected to give the student a general overview of multiple parts of the industry to include providers, payers, historical developments and efforts to reform the system, quality care, and the Accountable Care Act. (Note: this course will only focus on the US system, and will not focus on global health issues).
