A strong argument can be made that the health care field is one of the most information-intensive sectors in the U.S. economy and avoidance of the rapid advances in information technology is no longer an option. Consequently, the study of health care information technology and systems has become central to health care delivery effectiveness. This course covers the modern application of information technology that is critical to supporting the vision and operational knowledge of the health care leaders in managing the health care organization. Heath care decision-makers have to meet head-on the dynamic challenges of health care delivery quality, cost, access, and regulatory control. Additionally, this course integrates the Healthcare Information System as integral to the Quality Assurance Tracking Programs including measurement of systems inputs, processes, and outputs with special emphasis on systems outcomes research and organizational accountability to its various stakeholders, not the least of which are government regulators.

by Dissipate is taking this course right now, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Many videos in this course are interviews with people, and the rest, sort of a video conversation with viewers. That makes the course feel very unstructured because people do go off tangent.

The lecturers and interviewees have lots of knowledge and experience to share. Unfortunately, with the poor structure and planning, I could not get the big picture and points of it all. Lots of times the videos were putting me to sleep.

The quizzes were poorly written. Majority of the questions were not touched on during the lectures. In one case, a course mentor realised that some course material required to answer a question was missing, and he posted that he would look into it. However, that was 6 months ago and to-date the issue has not been addressed. Some of the "correct" answers to the quiz questions were dubious.
