Health Economics

This course is designed to build an understanding of the healthcare delivery system from an applied economics perspective.  The application of these skills will be drawn from examples that illustrate the production of and demand for health. The economic analysis of healthcare delivery is based on microeconomic theory: elasticity of demand, price sensitivity, and other basic economic concepts that will be covered in this course. As health insurance models develop, greater emphasis is being placed on individual choice and responsibility as determinants of healthcare utilization. This trend has resulted in greater emphasis on the use of economic theory to both plan and evaluate the healthcare setting. Insurance is a major economic lever of these trends. How insurance firms are molding consumer choice and responsibility for economic advantage will become critical to the future of healthcare in the U.S. Economic analysis is therefore pivotal to any understanding of how the healthcare system operates from both an empirical and normative aspect.
