The health care industry is the fastest growing segment of the U.S. economy. This course examines the interplay between business organizations, which fund employee health insurance, and health. The first half focuses on U.S. organizations with topics ranging from corporate culture and power to the structure of work in health care organizations. For instance, the class will examine how power and corporate culture influence the definition of health, employee attention to safety, and employee willingness to use wellness programs. The second half shifts to an international comparative analysis of work, health, and health care in countries with differing institutional environments, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Korea.
