Health reform has been a significant component of the public debate for years. While the United States maintains the highest per capita expenditures in the world, health outcomes and health system performance lag behind peer and non-peer nations. At the same time, the health care industry is one of the largest and fastest-growing sectors of the American economy. This course examines the dynamics of the health care industry through the lens of law and public policy. Topics include access to health care, health care finance, quality control, patient privacy and evidence-based medicine in the age of big data, the role of the regulatory state, and bioethics. Throughout the semester we will explore how health laws impact individual liberties and public health, and discuss how best to strike an appropriate balance between cost, quality, access, and choice. The course is designed to provide practical knowledge of health law issues and foster critical thinking of health policy.
