This course familiarizes students with the paradigms associated with health care delivery in the US and the determination of value/quality.  Fee-for-service, pay-for-performance, value-based purchasing, etc. as arrangements in reimbursing professionals and hospitals will be explored.  The dynamic relationship composed of public and private payers, profit and non-profit providers, public policy entities (Affordable Care Act), employers/industry and patients/consumers will be explored related to quality healthcare.  Particular attention will be given to Population Health and its unique attributes.  A systemic view will be stressed to illustrate the sensitivities existing among the entities of the health care, for example, how does quality as inpatient admission reduction impact hospitals, payers, etc.
