PHM 600LEC The US Healthcare System


Social, political, economic and other factors have an enormous impact on the way that the US health care system is structured and, therefore, on the types of and manner by which care is delivered to patients. "The health care system in the United States has been called 'a paradox of excess and deprivation.' Some persons receive too little care because the are uninsured, inadequately insured, or have Medicaid coverage that many physicians will not accept." ("Understanding Health Policy: A Clinical Approach, 6e" by Thomas Bodenheimer and Kevin Grumbach.) This is a one credit-hour course which serves as an examination of U.S. health systems in which patient-centered and/or population-based care is provided, and how social, political, economic, organizational and cultural factors influence providers' ability to ensure patient safety and deliver coordinated interprofessional care services.
