Strategy, Economics, and Policy in the Health Sector

QST HM 820

This course studies the strategic and economic issues facing insurers, providers, and life-sciences companies in the healthcare sector.

The course will also examine the problems faced by regulators, who must craft policies that shape the healthcare sector: which hospital mergers to allow; what procedures health insurers must cover; how public programs ought to reimburse life-sciences companies; how quality of care is measured and rewarded; and so on.
