Foundations of Healthcare Analytics
Gives students an overview of the history, concepts, purpose, and building blocks of healthcare analytics. Topics will include data acquisition and management, data analysis and visualization, and storytelling with data. Using case studies and other applied assignments, students will learn how to use statistical techniques to plan, deliver, and improve healthcare services, interpret data to make evidence-based decisions, and visualize large amounts of data to generate reports that tell a story. Given the rapidly advancing nature of the field, the course will touch on the latest technologies for healthcare data analytics. This course will also prepare students to begin work on the healthcare analytics capstone project, to be completed by the end of the program.
