The second course explores whether the healthcare delivery system and the clinicians will or will not find value from deploying a new innovation. The third course identifies the competitive landscape of medical technology innovations to compete or complement. The fourth course teaches how to put a monetary value on the improvement in health resulting from a new innovation. In this way, the suite of four courses supports the capstone experience.
