1.1.1 Course Welcome and Overview

Welcome to the world of healthcare delivery providers! In this first module, I will introduce important concepts in this field including how value in healthcare is measured, what some key influencers of healthcare are and how the healthcare delivery system will be examined in this course. We will use various lenses such as: site of care delivery, payment models, payers and humans that work in the delivery system to dissect this value chain. I will also discuss emerging paradigms like the Triple and Quadruple Aims and Accountable Care, which are rapidly spreading across the US healthcare industry.
