TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ECONOMICS OF HEALTH CARE DELIVERY
Great introductory course for an RN learning about the economics of health care delivery. A little over my head but I gained enough knowledge to be conversant. Thank you!
k you To professors on this wonderful course, I really liked it that I completed it in 5 days. I do believe it is the best health economics course, I have ever attend.
Very well organised. Key concepts were explained clearly with graphics and examples. Good to obtain understanding of the fundamentals of health care delivery in the US and the insurance market.
The entire course was easy to understand and was very informative to understand the current landscape of the healthcare industry.
