Health Care IntroductionGlobally, health care is a subject of significant concern for both government and private organizations in a way that resources are kept aside to cater to the health care system and especially in the United States and Germany. A health care system is an organization of individuals, resources, and institutions that provide health care services to the community for their health needs. Health care systems of the two countries are responsible for delivering health financing, stewardship, inputs for health services, and the provision of well-being services for citizens. Also, the presence of a health care system ensures there is a reduction in premature deaths and disabilities; diseases are managed and prevented by either using modern medicines or employing alternatives medicines that are new to the body. Also, a health system ensures that the nation maintains healthy routine practices, together with providing health equity for the Germansand Americans. The issues addressed in a health care system include the accessibility of health services to the target population, the amount of expenditure expected to be spent on purchasing medications or machines. These resources involve the facilities and the workers in the facilities. Among the components present in a health care system, universal coverage element plays a significant role in ensuring that everyone present in the borders of Germany and America has access to health services and medicines (Zinn and McDonald, 2017). The other components provided by health facilities include people-centered services, health provision in all policies, and inclusive leadership in the basics of health care systems while treating patients. Besides, the health care system for both Germany and the United States promotes timely, accurate services that are aided by competent professionals, as expressed by the essay below.
Roles played by the United States Government in the health care system The act enacted in 2010 by the United States government named The Affordable Care Act (ACA), generated a shared responsibility between the employees, the government and the citizens in accessing quality and affordable health insurance. Medicaid and Medicare are centers run by the government in the United States that operates a program for disabled adults aged 65 years old and above in administering medical aids. Also, the federal government provides medical assistance to children and a particular group with low income.
