This course explores in detail the process of emphasizing primary and preventive care to improve health status of the population and manage the growing cost of acute inpatient care. The PHI process aims to enhance the individual and cohorts (targeted groups) health status and wellbeing rather than rely solely on the acute care system. PHI combines the benefits of public health and medical interventions with preventive care and socio-economic interventions and prepares you for understanding of universal coverage.
