Module Profile: Using Information in Healthcare Management

This module deals with the evaluation, analysis and presentation of healthcare data to inform decisions in the management of healthcare organizations.

Students are introduced to some of the current ideas in management theory to provide a context for later material. The key data sets used to log activity and assess quality in healthcare are described.

Students apply statistical and other mathematical techniques to solve key problems in healthcare such as:

  • predicting demand
  • understanding variance and 
  • detecting outliers.

Case studies will be mainly taken from the NHS but designed to be relevant to an international audience.
