Management of Health Services and Medical Care (also known as Health Care Management) is a course for students interested in better understanding health care management tools in an era of reform. The course looks at various methods for addressing universal access to health care, quality of care and health care costs. The course also examines consumers’ experiences with the health care system and explores ways to improve this experience. Through case studies, critical evaluation, readings and assignments, this course will assess progress toward health care reform in the US from different stakeholders’ perspectives. The distinct strategic and leadership challenges faced by managers in healthcare organizations will be examined through the perspectives of consumers, employers, practitioners, insurers, regulators, and public policy-makers. Real world examples of the use and value of the tools will be examined throughout the semester.
