About this item
A toolkit for experts and non-experts to harness the analytic power of healthcare modeling From federal reforms to hospital management, the road to better and more cost-effective healthcare is paved with difficult questions: How do we reduce wait times? How can we prevent as many deaths as possible with a limited budget? How many vaccines should we order for this emerging epidemic? How we reduce social disparities in diabetes rates? Modeling techniques provide answers to these tough questions. In Modeling Public Health and Healthcare Systems, Sanjay Basu helps readers (including readers from non-quantitative backgrounds) understand and apply modeling methods to improve outcomes and efficiency in healthcare and public health. Using real-world examples from non-governmental organizations, departments of public health, and international health agencies, Basu establishes the theory behind each modeling method, then instills practical skills for their application. Covering both technical requirements and the most useful modeling methods used today in public health and healthcare, Modeling Public Health and Healthcare Systems is a vital and accessible toolkit for understanding and effecting change in 21st century healthcare and public health.
