Through a series of ten dynamic and insightful lectures from renowned leaders in the fields of hospital administration, private insurance, public policy, and healthcare more broadly, this course promises to provide attendees with the foundational knowledge needed to understand the complicated interplay between public, private, and individual actors in our current healthcare system. But beyond that, the sessions serve as an opportunity to learn from and engage with the people and organizations working to improve a decidedly flawed but constantly evolving system through innovations in IT, provider reimbursement, patient safety, and much more.
