Week 7 Discussion
Pick a real healthcare organization or create your own. Think about the reimbursement types that organization is basing the financial sustainability on. List the organization type (e.g., for profit, not-for-profit etc., a hospital, a minute clinic etc.). List the income streams appropriate (e.g., out of pocket, capitation, fee-for-service etc.). Discuss how we can use epidemiology to assess served population healthcare risks that will affect cost of care and financial sustainability of your organization. Give an example. HINT: all the concepts you need to know are presented in week 1-7 of the course. HINT: use module 2 to help you.
