The Health Economics Speaker Series allows us to highlight health economics at DePaul University by hosting events centered around current topics in the health care sector. Speakers are invited from industry, government, insurance and academia to discuss the most pressing issues in health care today.
Professor Anthony LoSasso, a nationally recognized health economist, leads the effort. His research spans several dimensions of health and labor economics, health policy and health services research, and has explored the impact of health insurance benefit design on healthcare utilization and health of enrollees.
The Economics Department offers a
MBA concentration in Healthcare Markets and Analytics. The concentration provides a balance of hands-on technical knowledge of health care data, organizational details on the major components of the health care sector, and detailed knowledge of how incentives determine the behavior of the major players in the health care arena — patients, physicians, hospitals, long-term care institutions, pharmaceutical companies, and local, state and federal government agencies.
