Online introduction to health care economics - easy

This online course by the Office of Health Economics is intended as an introductory course on the issues of health care economics. As I told you repeatedly in the course - health care has many "market failures" that prevent this market from being a real free market. These market failures caused many countries in the developed world to choose a single payer or national health care system. Others have chosen strict governmental oversight on mandatory insurance.
We will be talking about some of the same issues from a different perspective in the course.

Health care economics are in the news every day in almost every country, and a general knowledge in this field is important for doctors especially if they want to be agents of positive change.

Please read this easy overview to understand more!
Can also be downloaded as a PDF.
