15.777 Healthcare Lab: Introduction to Healthcare Delivery in the United States
Our Healthcare Lab students work with host companies to find actionable solutions to real challenges in the healthcare field, and to make improvements in analytics, operations management, IT, marketing, and many other areas, with one ultimate goal: to improve the quality of healthcare and patient outcomes.
H-Lab provides a unique learning opportunity for students by using classroom discussions with faculty and guest speakers to provide insights that support their Action Learning project work.
Guest speakers come from many areas of the U.S. health delivery system:
- Health systems such as Mass General Brigham and Dana Farber Cancer Institute
- Digital healthcare delivery innovators such as Amwell and Buoy Health
- Government health leaders focused on health information technology, Medicaid, and public health
Action Learning projects provide students hands on experience that will prepare them for the very real challenges that face healthcare organizations. And through these students' experiences, healthcare businesses, employees, and patients ultimately benefit.
