Overview

Healthcare delivery system reform and innovation are crucial topics in healthcare. Understanding organizations and current delivery systems help leaders understand why there are poor outcomes and create pathways for change. Exposure to other efficient and cost-effective models will allow learners to incorporate these ideas into their own healthcare delivery.

Learners who take this course will be able to analyze the structure of the U.S. healthcare system and how healthcare is delivered, its impact on population health outcomes, and comparative analysis.

This course is part of the Certified Lifestyle Medicine Executive MicroMasters program. For an introduction to lifestyle medicine, see the Lifestyle Medicine Competencies Professional Certificate program.
