ミネソタ大学(University of Minnesota) による Medical Technology and Evaluation の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Innovations in medical technologies are one of the leading areas of economic growth in the world. Whether new technologies take the form of pharmaceutical, medical device, biotechnology, information technology of some combination of these innovations, the opportunities for both private enterprise and social welfare are substantial. However, these innovations are not without cost, and require reimbursement from either a privately or publicly financed health care delivery system to enter the marketplace. This course aims to provide knowledge of the concepts, data, and methodology required to critically evaluate new medical technologies in order to secure financial investment, reimbursement, and regulatory compliance objectives, such as FDA approval. The course is designed to provide understanding of the analytic tools needed to evaluate medical technologies. After completing this course, students will have the skills needed to: - Understand the reimbursement systems financing medical technology use. - Understand the role of government and regulatory agencies in the development and use of new medical technologies. - Identify a population to be served by a medical technology. - Use health care data to evaluate a medical technology. - Perform cost/benefit and cost/effectiveness analysis of a new technology....




This course is a great tool to learn basics about health technology if you want to begin in this field. Thank you for the information, it was well explained and organized. I enjoyed my learning.



Extremely valuable content. I have seen very few places where so much information about Medical Technology development and regulation was provided in such a compact and well-organized place.

Pretty good I though there was a bit to much overlap with Course 3, and I thought the assignment was a bit nebulous

by Arnold J S


First couple of weeks, the instructor sounds a bit nervous which may make empathetic indiviuals uncomfortable.

Nice course. It would be better if the PPT could be modified (reduce the words, add more figures or diagrams).

by Thierry P


The last week is the more interestinig. More details would be appreciated

This course is a good tool to learn in a very generic and theoric way what an HTA is. However, I think it lacks a lot in the way of providing the tools or information to be able to perform a simple cost-effectiveness study yourself. I think it should provide real examples where he analyses a real case in way more depth that what he does during the course, or the depth of one or some links where you can find some guidelines or something.

In the beginning the lecturer seemed to have to think of what he wanted to say, thus losing my attention. Towards the end it got better - especially where it appears the lecture was redone.

by Alfons P


Good content but the communication quality of the speaker is very low. Makes it more easy to just read the transcript than listening to the video.

This class is a good introduction to the words and concepts for market analysis in the medical world. But the lecturer's pacing is awkward, the assignments are poorly worded, and (aside for isolated examples that are not contextualized to the rest of this course) the class doesn't explore many solutions for contemporary societal and ethical issues in medtech evaluation strategies.

Reading from slides only is not really exciting way of presenting the topic of HTA

Worst of all Coursera Course I took

by Evangelos P


Contenu pédagogique avec beaucoup d'erreurs.

Difficile de suivre un instructeur qui n'est pas visible...

by Jonathan G


Bias towards the American healthcare system and deathly boring. Only take this course you have to.

by Dan F


Fairly basic. Instructor is dry. Slides are just bulleted lists.
