WMBA 6603 - Health Policy and Economics


(3 sem. cr.) Managers in healthcare must possess the skills needed to assess economic principles and polices to make important decisions regarding healthcare and services. In this course, students examine the application of health policy and economic principles in regard to managerial decision making. They learn about the process for policy development and implementation, key stakeholders and interest groups involved in the health policy process, and how health policy changes over time within the United States. Students assess and discuss key policy initiatives related to cost, quality, and access. They also engage in assignments designed to advance their understanding of and ability to apply economic principles, such as supply, demand, and the determination of market price.
