The entire course was easy to understand and was very informative to understand the current landscape of the healthcare industry.
Great overview about the payment system for health care! But it has too many theories that I don't know how I can apply to real practice.
The course covered a lot of material in easily absorbable lessons.
I not only learnt a lot, I actually understaood the whys and hows.
Very interesting introduction to the market and governmental forces behind our healthcare system. I enjoyed that the instructor has direct research experience on this topic and spoke candidly.
