Healthcare Delivery System
This is an individual assignment completed over the course of 7 weeks. The assignment takes a systems approach and requires you to examine the functional pieces of a health delivery system in the United States. Being able to analyze services and systems in addition to organization and functions is an important competency. Developing a framework enables you to analyze the structure and organization of services and systems. The project enables you to apply concepts, theories and models using an applied and integrated systems approach.
