Option #1: Past and Present Influences on U.S. Hospital System (Paper)
For this assignment, you will write a two to three page paper addressing the following:
Over the course of history, key events have helped to shape the hospital system in the United States. Evaluate the impact of one of the following—the development of the modern health insurance industry, Medicare and Medicaid, or the Hill-Burton Act of 1946—on the development of the hospital system. How might our hospital system be different today had history been different? What influence have recent healthcare reform efforts (Affordable Care Act) had on the current U.S. healthcare system?
Your paper should meet the following requirements:
- Be two to three pages in length, not including the cover or reference pages.
- Be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA.
- A minimum of four references with associated in-text citations. Two of these sources may be from the class readings, textbook, or lectures, but two must be external and should be from peer-reviewed or quality academic sources. Each reference must be cited at least once in the paper. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these references.
- Headings to organize the content in your work.
