This course examines developing issues in health care that directly impact the delivery of health services. The Affordable Health Care Act and other regulations are studied in terms of how they are reshaping the health care field. The aging population, the increasing cost of health care, the rise in litigation in health care, the decentralization of health care, and other issues are explored. Organizational responses to these emerging issues are also studied.
