HTSC 545 - Population Health Management (3)


This course will provide students with training in the measurement, analysis, method, language, models, and concepts of population health. The course clarifies how an understanding of determinants of health can influence public policy, planning, and research to promote a healthier society with greater health equity. By the end of the course, students will understand the relationship between health care and individual and population health, and be able to combine that knowledge with critical thinking to identify, evaluate, and address issues in health care and population health, collaboratively. Students will be able to apply statistical and epidemiological methods to clinical and managerial decision making and to interpreting and appraising the literature on health care delivery. They will be able to analyze the forces, explicit (e.g. legal, financial) and implicit (e.g. historical, cultural), that influence individual and population health and the health care delivery. Students will evaluate the structure and function of front line systems in healthcare and apply principles and practices that improve processes, outcomes, and value.
