PH 112 Medical Care and the Corporation

This course is intended to 1) illustrate the applicability of management concepts and techniques to the health care and biotechnology industries; 2) enhance the ability of managers to serve as trustees of health care organizations; and 3) demonstrate how corporate managers can exercise judgment and control over expenditures for health care benefits while protecting the health of their employees. The characteristics and components of the health care system and their interactions and determinants will be analyzed. The history of corporate and governmental intervention in health care will be reviewed. The importance of understanding the medical market dynamics and the options for data-driven strategies for market reform will be stressed. Case examples will highlight the use of new analytic techniques for understanding and managing the medical markets.
