This course introduces students to selected transformational capabilities that are currently impacting healthcare systems and will continue for the foreseeable future. The selected transformational capabilities will be discussed in the context of a healthcare systems thinking-engineering strategy to best leverage the capability for a more cohesive and integrated healthcare ecosystem. The topics that will be discussed include: Personal Wearables and Apps, Personalized Medicine, Digital Health, Data Science and AI/ML, Telehealth & Telemedicine, Predictive Analytics/Forecasting, Virtual/Augmented Reality, Interoperability, Resilient Systems, and Supply Chains. Each transformation capability will be delineated with its unique attributes, applied to selected healthcare ecosystems, and then discussed within a systems thinking-engineering development approach to help demonstrate its overall impact and comprehensive integrated value.
