PH 124 Practicum: Design & Improvement of Clinical Micro-systems

This course creates an opportunity for students to study and apply the principles and concepts learned in PH 117, The Continual Improvement of Health Care, to the work of managing the health and value of health care for a defined population of patients. Participants will work in partnership with selected managed care settings throughout the United States. Specifically, this course will offer participants an opportunity to identify the processes involved in managing a panel of patients, learn the knowledge and skills providers need to manage panels and provide optimal patient care, identify approaches for taking costs out of the care while maintaining or improving quality and enhancing customer satisfaction, understand the difference between the efforts for improvement of care at the front line and in the front office and how they may be related, and identify some of the barriers to making the health of a population better.
