What do you believe is the greatest achievement that the health care industry has made from both the patient and provider perspectives?
MUST be Substantive with All Questions Answered
Objectives for this Assignment:
Tabulate the historical development of healthcare delivery systems in the U.S., and evaluate the forces involved.
The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.
The U.S. health care system has undergone many changes in its history. Complete the following for this Discussion Board:
What do you believe is the greatest achievement that the health care industry has made from both the patient and provider perspectives? Why?
Do you believe that there is too much or too little redundancy in our health care delivery system? Where does most of the redundancy occur? Where should we have more redundancy (second opinions)?
In your own words, post a substantive response to the Discussion Board question(s) and comment on other postings. Your response should address the DB question(s) and move the conversation forward. You will be graded on the quality of your postings, including mastery of the concept as well as critical thinking. If asked for your opinion, do not simply state that it is a good or bad idea; elaborate on your reasons and argument. Include enough detail to substantiate your thinking as well as your position on the questions or comments.
