[3 credit(s)]
Must be admitted as a graduate student to be eligible for this course. May be taken concurrently with HCA 515. Presents a framework for decision making in the health care environment. Students will be exposed to a series of quantitative techniques that are useful in analyzing complex decision-making situations that arise in the health care sector. Students will develop skills in: I) formulating an abstract mathematical representation of the decision-making problem; II) choosing the appropriate quantitative technique to analyze the problem and; III) translating the solutions to the problem from the mathematical model back into the original "real world" situation; IV) the manipulation and interpretation of large data sets. This course is also designed to provide you with the ability to apply quantitative methods to epidemiology. Insights gained from this course will facilitate problem solving and understanding how epidemiology relates to management decision making in the second course in quantitative methods.
