 Choose a developed and industrialized country, other than the U.S., and research their healthcare system. In a 3 to 4 page paper, compare and contrast their healthcare system to the United States. Include at least 3 similarities and 3 differences. Remember to use APA formatting. This will include opening/closing paragraphs, title page, reference page (at least 3 references), and in-text citations.

Health Care Systems

 

1) On page 212 of the textbook, we are given a visual description of the differences that exist across health care systems in different countries, including the U.S. Select one of the foreign countries listed in Table 9.1, and compare it with the U.S. system. Review each characteristic for the U.S. and the country that you select, and discuss whether you think the U.S would benefit from adopting their system or if they would benefit from adopting the U.S.’s system or if there are certain aspects of a system that would be of benefit. Provide supporting facts and references for your position. 

Your response should be at least 500 words in length. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. Any references or citations used should be in 6th edition APA style.

2) The textbook makes a comparison of various healthcare settings such as the hospital, nursing homes, and hospice, but there are many other settings that exist. Research and select another type of healthcare setting, and discuss service delivery models in the past compared with the methods of delivery that are used in this setting currently. Include any technological advancement that has emerged in the setting that you choose. 

Your response should be at least 500 words in length. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. Any references or citations used should be in 6th edition APA style.

HEALTH CARE SYSTEMS

1.    There are several significant changes in the U.S. health care delivery system that began occurring over the past decade, e.g. shifts in

relationships between employers and government, between physicians, hospitals, and insurers, between physicians and hospitals, between insurers and

health plans, and between employees and individual’s buyers.  Identify one of these shifts that may be found within one or more of these

relationships and:
a)  Describe the main features of the shift
b)  Describe the current implications of the shift for each party, and
c)  Forecast the implications of the shift for the next five years.

As a health administrator, what sources of information [e.g. list specifics] will you regularly review to track these shifts over the next few years?

2.    If we accept the premises that resources available to meet the costs of health care are finite and that continuing to increase dollars

allocated for health care expenses carries “opportunity costs” for the nation and society, discuss your position on the following:  As a national

policy should we allocate a set level of resources and apply them to achieving “the greatest good for the greatest number” (necessarily leaving some

out) OR should we adopt the individualist approach of “those who can pay get, those who can’t don’t”? Please include relevant literature to support

your discussion.
