HCA 216 - Population Health Management

Three Credits
Both Fall and Spring

This course is intended to provide an introduction to Population Health and Population Health Management. Inputs or determinants of health include policies, clinical care, public health, genetics, environmental factors, and the distribution of disparities in the population.  Improving health outcomes and reducing health disparities will involve moving beyond medical care services to thoughtful consideration of the social determinants of health and community-based efforts. The healthcare system needs to deliver services in accord with Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate standards and demonstrate more value for the resources invested. Population Health Management can illuminate the pathway towards improvement on all these key dimensions.
