About the Course

This course will review the drivers of healthcare cost and solutions that have been proposed to address cost, quality and value of health care. Many point blame for high costs on payment models that pay healthcare providers for every service they provide to patients, essentially paying more for volume and service intensity. This is called a Fee for Service (FFS) payment model. Some solutions, arguably the more sustainable solutions, are the combined strategies of new payment models, care management, insurance plan designs, consumer engagement tools, and technology. Using that information we will explore various situations, showcasing coordinated care and payment strategies that can be implemented to improve patient health and the cost of delivery of healthcare services. By the end of this course, the learner should be able to: 1. Identify the drivers and trends of healthcare spending from the perspective of various stakeholders, including medical providers, insurers, government and private purchasers and payments 2. Critically assess the impact of strategic and financial approaches that have been put in place by the ACA and the various modifications. 3. Evaluate how healthcare payment models currently work and the new direction that value-based payment is taking. 4.Identify how financial and non-financial metrics can be appropriately combined to improve a healthcare stakeholders’ value proposition....

Excellent instructor

Gave the course 5 stars, however one thing I would point out is that some articles are not available without paid subscriptions to the source newspapers.

Good explanations & conversations. The first few sections were a bit simplistic but the later chapters were excellent. Glad I spent the time.

Great course that teaches future health payment models into a a concise package. Smaller sound bites effectively teach lessons as understandable and memorable chunks. Thank you, Rina, for articulating the need to follow the money, and follow it in regards to healthcare stakeholders.

Prof Rina Vertes is an extremely structured orator who delivers complicated concepts as lucidly possible. The models explained in this course were completely new to me, but Prof Vertes helped them come to life with her animated lectures and captivating real life examples. Thanks Prof!

Delay on group corrections

Quiz questions often presented prior to introduction of information, misspellings in course materials, and required to watch 2 long interviews with a sweaty, greasy haired, orange toothed insurance head complaining about how the Affordable Care Act victimized fat cats like himself. You aren't able to review quiz answers you missed, robbing students of opportunities to learn. There are also required readings that demand payment to view. I appreciated the instructor's passion, but compared to other courses - which include study materials, the chance to learn from quiz mistakes, and the ability to review both of the aforementioned after completing the course - this was a laborious chore. PLUS it asks for a 2-page paper at the end, which lends to the sense that the course is more interested in being punitive and difficult than accessible, engaging, or educational.
