MMHA 5200 - Principles of Population Health in Healthcare Administration
(5 cr.) An increasing need exists for healthcare administrators to address population-wide health issues. Developing evidence-based health programs enables healthcare to be addressed on a preventive basis at the community or service area level. In this course, students utilize clinical data sets and combine this knowledge with public health data sets concerning socioeconomic and behavioral influencers of health. Students analyze these influencers to determine effective and appropriate services, programs, and solutions to benefit the population as a whole. They discover health issues facing special populations, respond to case studies, and create program plans to improve population disease outcomes.
