In this course there is an emphasis on selected statistics on general health issues.  A recent article reports “With an ageing society and an increase in obesity, as well as in chronic diseases, demand for healthcare is rising. This is a global challenge already putting a significant strain on healthcare worldwide. By 2025, the global population over 65 will double, from the 2005 levels, to about 820 million people. In Europe, 40-50% of the population will be over 65 by 2050. Then, let’s look at chronic diseases, already the leading cause of mortality in the world, representing 60% of all deaths, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Furthermore, the WHO says one billion people globally are currently overweight or obese – a significant contributor to chronic disease. These numbers will likely rise beyond 1.5 billion by 2015, and chronic disease will claim an estimated 70% of all deaths.”    In summary, the course provides a broad overview of the state of healthcare and health issues in the US and other parts of the world.  The course also discusses various aspects of Confidentiality of Patient Information along with the role of Health IT in improving the overall efficiency of our healthcare system.   Spence, Don. “because home is where the health is”.  GetInsideHealth. http://www.getinsidehealth.com/Global/Financial_Times/FT_Philips.pdf?epslanguage=enCourse Code: HT 530.
