Healthcare organisations share commonalities with production facilities, including the need for efficient process flow, change management, and quality standards. As a student you will explore the principles, approaches, strategies, and techniques for analysing, designing, and managing complex healthcare systems. You will learn to measure efficiency and improve effectiveness, productivity, quality, and safety.
Throughout the year, you’ll acquire the skills and knowledge to assess organisational performance and drive the development and implementation of innovation in healthcare organisations in order to bring about improvement. You will learn about the workings of health systems and the processes that have impact on the industry today, such as the transformative abilities of technology and data.
We will provide you with an insight into health systems modelling, e-health, health informatics, and epidemiology. Ultimately, you will gain the essential knowledge to manage the integration of people, systems, and technologies to ensure the delivery of consistent high quality, person-centric care.
