This course provides the students with an evidence-based overview of the current status of the U.S. healthcare system including both problems and opportunities; introduces the student to process improvement tools and techniques; provides hands on experiences in system modeling tools and processes; and concludes with student group presentations. Modeling methods may be used to visualize and describe systems, and are important to understand complex interactions of people, processes and data, and communicate solutions. Students will develop models for the use cases and present them. This course engages an active learning framework (lectures online, classroom devoted to hands-on activities); blends knowledge and skills; provide opportunities to see workflow in real environments; and used a case-based learning approach. Students will learn how to pick appropriate methods for the modeling task at hand.
