Examine challenges of modeling and analysis of healthcare systems. Analyze components of healthcare system, and examine the need for application of OR and IE tools to model and analyze healthcare systems. Apply deterministic and stochastic approaches to model and analyze healthcare systems.
Study existing and emerging policies in healthcare and their effects on healthcare system models.
Students should be able to
- model, solve and analyze healthcare system problems using quantitative tools;
- explain the complex interactions that exist in healthcare systems; and
- describe the complexities that exist in the privacy, security and other policies in healthcare, and explain their effect on healthcare system models.
