TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ECONOMICS OF HEALTH CARE DELIVERY
This is one of the best healthcare courses I've seen on Coursera. Interesting, well presented content. Good balance use of slides. Great speakers.
Very well organised. Key concepts were explained clearly with graphics and examples. Good to obtain understanding of the fundamentals of health care delivery in the US and the insurance market.
I had pre-existing knowledge of health economics but this taught me more than I'd imagine. I loved the deductive and narrative structure of the presentations.
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.
