Very interesting introduction to the market and governmental forces behind our healthcare system. I enjoyed that the instructor has direct research experience on this topic and spoke candidly.
This is one of the best healthcare courses I've seen on Coursera. Interesting, well presented content. Good balance use of slides. Great speakers.
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.
Very informative and interesting courses. It did not feel like a drag to complete. The test questions were appropriate for lectures.
