July 18, 2014    |   By: Calevir

As part of IHI’s overall plan to engage with those who share our passion for improvement, the IHI Open School is collaborating with the University of Florida on a new massive open online course (MOOC) called “Fixing Healthcare Delivery.” The course will be offered for free by Coursera, an education platform that partners with top universities and organizations worldwide to offer online courses. Starting September 1, the eight-week online course will cover five areas critical to improving the delivery of care: systems thinking; human factors design; teamwork; leadership; and mobilization. Lead faculty for the course is Dr. Fred Southwick, Professor of Medicine and former Chief of Infectious Diseases at the University of Florida, and Harvard Business School Advanced Leadership Fellow. The course features Open School videos and content, and is relevant for providers and patients alike.  Watch a video to learn more about the free course.
