Leading High Reliability Health Care Organizations


This course, offered for the Carey Business School MS in Health Care Management, focuses on the art and science of leading for highly reliable performance in the modern health care industry. Through discussion of evidence-based practices, opportunities to engage in experiential learning, and case examples related to decision-making, teaming, and organizing in various health care settings, students will learn how individuals can engage in efforts at multiple levels within and across organizations to ensure high reliability. 

The course pays special attention to the cognitive and affective dimensions of leading in today’s uncertain and dynamic health care environments, whether that means motivating a clinical care team, launching a new medical product, ensuring quality and payment coverage across a health care system, or coordinating patient access to health services.
