Healthcare Data Models is a great course that elaborately exposed various models relevant for healthcare data analysis. Doug did a very good job.
Course is good but at a very basic level. Little more technical depth around developing a healthcare data model would have been useful
Very well developed, simple and to the point. Highly recommended for doctors and healthcare IT professionals.
