ECON 550 - Economics of Healthcare (3)


This course bridges the gap between traditional economics and business decision-making by demonstrating how basic economic concepts, principles, and theories can be used to illuminate various healthcare issues. Students evaluate a theoretical or empirical argument relating to healthcare by conducting an in-depth analysis of the structure, conduct, and performance of the markets for physician, hospital, pharmaceutical and long-term care services. The course will include demand theory and estimation, production theory, cost analysis, market structure, pricing policies, and business investment decisions.
