This course is part of the Healthcare Administration MicroMasters program which consists of 7 courses and a capstone exam. After completing the program, you can also apply to Doane University to complete your MBA online for approximately $10,500 (learn more about the program here).

Delivery system reform and disruptive innovation are the key leadership topics in healthcare. Understanding organizations and current delivery systems help leaders understand why there are poor outcomes and the need to change. Exposure to other, more efficient and cost-effective systems in all parts of the world allows the opportunity for learners to incorporate these ideas into the next iteration of their own healthcare delivery.

Learners who take this course will be able to analyze the structures of the U.S. and other global healthcare systems and how healthcare is delivered worldwide, their impact on health outcomes, and comparative analysis.
