The U.S. health care system is the most expensive in the world, yet the U.S. ranks far from the top on most population health indicators. The structural, societal and technical obstacles that keep organizations from putting continuous health improvement into standard practice must be addressed at the systems level for meaningful change to happen.
It's time to boost your skills and learn how to tackle these challenges by joining the Health Infrastructures and Learning Systems (HILS)-Online Master’s program at the University of Michigan Medical School (application open to U.S. citizens and residents only). This first-of-its-kind program, which is part of an international movement to promote learning health systems, emphasizes the role of learning in health care environments and creates the tools needed to facilitate systems change.
As a practitioner, you will use data and analytics to find effective approaches to:
Implement solutions across large-scale systems
Translate research evidence into practice
Improve patient care quality and safety
Reduce medical errors and health care costs
The HILS-Online curriculum introduces distinct models of adaptive change, which you can immediately apply to existing problems. You will learn how to solve some of the most complex health problems in the U.S. and abroad all in a flexible, online format that works with your schedule.
