About the course

Improve the Effectiveness of Complex Health Care Systems

Many countries today struggle with how to deploy and manage their health care resources. Institutions, agencies, ministries and governments rely on well-trained experts to help them control costs and better manage their health care technologies, systems and infrastructure.

In this three-course certificate program, we’ll examine how to apply the principles of health economics to improve decision making in a complex health care environment. You’ll investigate health care markets and systems throughout the world and evaluate the effectiveness of medical treatments, interventions and technologies through outcomes research. Develop the ability to use economic assessments to improve health care decisions involving patients, providers, businesses and government agencies.

What you'll learn

  • How microeconomics is used to analyze the nature of health care markets and systems
  • Key principles relating to health insurance and health care regulation
  • Best practices for economic evaluation of health care technologies, including cost effectiveness, cost utility and cost benefit analyses
  • Preference-based measures of health-related quality of life and resource allocation for medical decision making
  • Different methods of health technology assessment
