HCDS LDI Leveraging Data to Inform Decision-Making

This course introduces quantitative reasoning toolkits reinforced with on-the-ground case studies. We will discuss the relative merits and limitations of common types of data sources in health care – such as electronic health records, claims databases, and surveys – and will introduce a framework through which managers can detect and diagnose data quality concerns. We will also explore descriptive, predictive, and evaluative statistical methods, demonstrating how each of these informs high-level strategic decisions. By the end of this course, students should be able to critique quantitative estimates supporting critical health care management decisions.
