Spring 2 2010

Ms. D. Devaux
2.5 credits
Lectures, seminars and case studies. Two 2-hour sessions each week.

The admonition "Follow the money" is good advice to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of any health care system. Money is a major tool for shaping the delivery of health care, for both good and ill. This course will follow the money as it flows through provider payment systems, and examine the effects of these flows on those who give, receive and pay for health care. Topics will include payment methods for hospital care, physician, pharmaceuticals, dental services, and new technologies. Cross-national examples will be used occasionally to gain greater understanding of some of the challenges that face all health care systems in designing successful provider payment systems. Guest speakers will provide a first-hand perspective on selected topics.

Course evaluations are an important method for feedback on the quality of course offerings. The submission of a course evaluation is a requirement for this course. Your grade for the course will be made available only after you have submitted responses to at least the first three questions of the on-line evaluation for this course.
