Oct 17 at HPHC (28 credit package)

October 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am

$39.95 – $329

50 minute lecture/discussion:
What plan designs miss

Plan designs aim to control costs by altering patient and physician behavior. They consistently fail to achieve their goals. This lecture explores some reasons why.

After the lecture, take the 2 exams below.
You must read the texts in advance. You will not be permitted to take the exams otherwise. 

  • An American Sickness by Elisabeth Rosenthal, Mass course #C93469, 19 credits. Dr. Rosenthal, a former NY Times health correspondent, shows how each patient has become an income stream to doctors and hospitals, causing them to provide as much care as possible, not as little as necessary. 
  • The Quality Cure by David Cutler, Mass course #C59932, 9 credits. Cutler, a professor of economics at Harvard, argues that improving medical care quality, not cutting medical care costs, offers the greatest benefit to our healthcare system. Is he right? 

Exams take about 20 minutes each after the lecture. Proctors provided. Graded immediately. You should be finished before 11:00.

Price: $329
