Health Policy and Position Statements, health and medicine homework help

Science

Overview

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (2010) is changing the way health care is delivered, and there are still issues which remain to be fully addressed with respect to health policy. In this assignment, you will select an aspect of health care reform which warrants continued and additional policy consideration. Examples might include: improving access to care, minimizing disparities in care, enhancing privacy protection of personal health records, et cetera.

As you conduct research to investigate facts related to your selected policy dilemma, you will create proposed solutions to minimize gaps. Finally, you will construct a health care policy statement which is supported with evidence (from authoritative government sources, peer-reviewed research, et cetera). The final product for this assignment is a substantive, yet succinct, policy position statement which is based upon comprehensive research of credible, authoritative sources. Your position statement should address an existing gap in some aspect of health care reform.
