EHSY 652 - Quantitative Methods
Modern healthcare systems are increasingly run “by the numbers.” This reflects expectations
that services delivered to patients as well as delivery system changes be based on the best
available evidence. And in addition to making use of existing evidence, learning health systems
are using health service research methods and “delivery system science” to identify effective
innovations and spread them to other provider organizations. Similarly, “dashboards” and
performance measures for individual providers, hospitals, and defined populations are publicly
reported and used to manage delivery systems and improve quality. To prepare executives to
lead and manage a learning health system, this course draws on quantitative methods from
statistics, epidemiology, and health services research. The goals are to enable students to
identify and use evidence to guide practice and policy, and to introduce the basic analytical tools
needed to support performance measurement for healthcare quality improvement efforts.
