In Healthcare, Good Decision-Making Can Save Lives
The decision healthcare professionals make every day directly impact the well-being and lives of patients. Therefore, mistakes need to be minimized and the accuracy of decision-making is critical. In order to make optimized, evidence-based decisions to positively impact quality, cost, and care outcomes, healthcare professionals in both clinical and non-clinical roles — in all fields of care, not just in healthcare informatics departments — must rely on data.
The Certificate in Healthcare Analytics program, co-developed by OpusVi and the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School, applies theory to real-world examples, enabling participants to be more informed consumers of healthcare analytics.
This course focuses on decision intelligence: Computers can do all of the math for us now, but decision-makers must understand and adequately represent the problem, and identify the outcome that matters most.
