|Health Care Markets||Masters||This course provides an overview of health care markets. It has a triple aim. First, we will cover a series of cases designed to give you a broad understanding of the global health care system, with an emphasis on payers, providers, products, and patients. Second, we will cover the economic models that allow us to explain and predict how these markets work, providing deep insights into the business and policy implications of the issues at hand. Third, we will cover the key statistical methods used for evaluating health outcomes that enable us to assess the true effectiveness of health care policies and strategies, focusing primarily on how to use observational data to establish causality the conclusion that one thing causes another.||Ryan McDevitt||Duke||Competition in Health Care Markets & Insurer & Hospital Behaviors, Health Systems & Health Care Financing, "Theory, Econometric Advances, and Cost Advances", Minority Health and Health Disparities, International Health and Developing Countries, Demand for & Effect of Health Insurance, Health Reform||Health Care Markets|
|Economics 683||PhD||The goal of this course is to foster the transition from student to researcher while introducing students to core concepts and empirical methodologies in health economics and government spending through the lens of public finance. Core concepts include theories of the role of the government, theories of welfare in insurance markets, and theories of the interaction between the government and markets. Empirical methodologies will progress from reduced form techniques such as difference-in-difference, fixed effects, regression discontinuity, and analysis of experiments, to sufficient statistics and structural estimation.||Amanda Kowalski||University of Michigan||"Health, Labor Markets, & the Economy", Health Reform, Maternal & Child Health, "Theory, Econometric Advances, and Cost Advances"||Adverse Selection, Health Reform and the Labor Market, Returns to Medical Care for At-Risk Newborns|
