TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ECONOMICS OF HEALTH CARE DELIVERY
The course covered a lot of material in easily absorbable lessons.
I not only learnt a lot, I actually understaood the whys and hows.
This was a great overview of the healthcare sector and establishing an understanding of payment models that are not discussed in medical school. Visual aids helped to discuss and display concepts.
Great overview about the payment system for health care! But it has too many theories that I don't know how I can apply to real practice.
This course is a very good introduction to various aspects of the economics of HCD. The lectures a crisp and short. The pace is comfortable and the graphics very useful.
