Prof. Parente does a great job of introducing the audience to the healthcare marketplace in the United States and laying the framework for the rest of the courses to be studied in the specialization.

Although I feel that there's a bit too much historical information on the healthcare marketplace that's expected to be digested, a couple of sittings through the course should help you understand the relevance of all the historical information; even if you're unable to recall a lot of it by the end of the course.

Very good overview of the healthcare marketplace players and also an introduction to business decision making regarding new innovations in medical technologies.

totally recomeded this course if you need to learn about the medical system the EEUU This course provided an updated refresher on the healthcare marketplace for me, who studies health systems in college a decade ago.
