The Healthcare industry is an industry that provides goods & services to treat patients that have medical and health related issues. The healthcare industry is one of the United States, and the world’s largest and fastest-growing industries. For many years the healthcare industry had been under much scrutiny. Many American’s believed that the healthcare industry became less about the patients well-being and more about earning as much revenue as possible for each healthcare company. On September 12, 2010, President Barak Obama signed The Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (PPACA). This act insured that many uninsured American’s would be insured, and mandated that many companies provide affordable healthcare for their employees. Among other provisions and stipulations, many tough regulations were handed down to Healthcare companies.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
