This module exposes students to integrated issues related
to the organisation and economics of healthcare within
a variety of settings at the local, regional, national and
international level. Within the Singaporean context, the
focus is on the provision of health services to the public
via an integrated care system. Students are exposed
to current funding models and analysis of the social
implications that economics and resources allocations
have on health outcomes. Health informatics is also
covered in this module, with students learning about
resources, devices and methods that are used in the
healthcare system to optimise the acquisition, storage,
retrieval and use of information.
