The U.S. Healthcare System in Transition

QST PL 430

The U.S. healthcare system has undergone sweeping change as a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. Knowledge of how the reform law has affected health care organizations, health professionals, consumers, and American businesses is essential for everyone, especially those planning careers in management or business. This rigorous seminar, which counts toward the Questrom Health & Life Sciences concentration and the Questrom Law concentration, provides an in-depth look at the economic, political, social and organizational challenges that face the nation as elements of the ACA are being dismantled by the Trump administration. Students read and analyze articles, issue briefs, and legal opinions from diverse perspectives to learn how the U.S. healthcare system came to be and how it will change in the future.
