IHP 610 Module Four Short Paper Guidelines and Rubric

Overview

History tells us how we got where we are. Before trying to change something as complex as the healthcare system, it is essential to understand why it is structured the way it is. Today’s

healthcare system in the United States is complex and signi�cantly different from what it used to be. The healthcare system has not only undergone drastic changes in past decades but also

continues to evolve. What are the factors that are driving the changes? How is healthcare delivered differently from in the past? How are the changes impacting stakeholders? All of these are

important questions to ask in order to achieve continuous improvement in the healthcare system.

This assignment will help you explore the history of the healthcare system in the United States and analyze the importance of history in reforming the policies and laws for improvement. You

will analyze the in�uence of stakeholders on the formation and reformation of policies and laws. Also, you will describe how the needs and interests of stakeholders and interest groups

in�uence the decision-making process. This assignment will help you understand how the healthcare system has evolved in the United States and the role of stakeholders in this evolution.

Prompt
