Online Sync Sessions are an integral part of the online learning experience. Additional information about learning concepts and assignments may be discussed and sync sessions offer valuable opportunities for students to interact with their faculty and peers during the term. We encourage all students to attend live, but if they are unable to, sync sessions will be recorded and posted within Canvas to allow for an asynchronous model of success as well.

MHI 407-DL : Legal, Ethical, and Social Issues


Description

The American health care landscape is incredibly dynamic, rapidly evolving, and highly regulated. This course explores the intersection of compelling legal, ethical, and social facets that impact the health care enterprise. The content, research, and group discussions support informaticists in building knowledge they need to navigate competing interests, underlying ethical principles, and key regulatory requirements. The course integrates changing financing paradigms, reimagined health care services delivery systems, the tension between precision medicine and population health, and evolving consumer expectations in the digital age. The challenges of safeguarding individual privacy rights and data security are assessed, along with the promise of innovative public-private partnerships that are shaping health informatics in the Learning Health Care System.
