Healthcare managers must recognize that changes in healthcare policy can alter the economic landscape of an organization. In understanding healthcare economic principles, healthcare mangers can develop healthcare delivery models designed to address critical healthcare issues. Ultimately, the goal must always be improving population health and outcomes. This assessment will provide you with a real-world opportunity to assume the role of healthcare administrator and analyze key legislation for its impacts to the delivery of care and public health. In this assessment, you will select an economic issue that has impacted the healthcare system from the provided list and identify a corresponding health policy addressing the issue. Your task will be to examine relevant macroeconomic and microeconomic forces to arrive at an informed opinion on the benefits and consequences of that policy. Based on your investigation, you will create a presentation articulating the value of the policy initiative for the overall health of American society. Ultimately, your aim is to influence an audience of healthcare administrators and managers, as well as healthcare policy makers and legislators, to care about your key health topic and support your identified solution. The project is divided into three milestones , which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Two, Three, and Five. The final submission is due in Module Seven.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
