    Healthcare Analytics enables doctors, nurses and clinic analysts to track patient health, hospitals to manage budgets, and public healthcare workers to understand macro-trends across regions.


    Leverage these Healthcare resources, in addition to the ready-made course curriculum modules found in our Tableau for Teaching User Community, to help get your students get up and running with Tableau. You can download this reference sheet as a PDF at the bottom of the document.
