Option #2: The U.S. Healthcare System: Analysis of a Healthcare Sector Presentation
Your portfolio assignment focuses on a specific sector of healthcare and its relation to the current U.S. healthcare system. Choose one of the healthcare sectors listed below for your portfolio assignment:
- Long-Term Care
- Mental and Behavioral Health
- Ambulatory Care
- For-Profit/Public Healthcare
Create a 10- to 12-slide PowerPoint presentation where you address the following:
- Describe the sector’s historical development and current role in healthcare delivery.
- Explain how the political influence in the U.S. healthcare system impacts how this sector provides healthcare to specific communities.
- Evaluate how quality, safety, and competition within this healthcare sector impact patient care.
- Examine what major challenges exist for this sector over the next decade from healthcare reform and other factors. Discuss a minimum of three challenges and offer your recommendations on how healthcare leaders and administrators can manage them.
- Provide a conclusion summary of your findings and of the project experience.
Your presentation should meet the following requirements:
- Be 10 to 12 slides in length, not including the title or reference slides.
- Be formatted for a formal presentation including headings per slide and major points per slide
- Speaker and presentation notes, or embedded audio to supplement each slide provided as if you were doing the actual presentation are required.
- Be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA.
- Cite at least eight scholarly references. Four of these references must be from outside sources and should be from peer-reviewed or quality academic sources, the other four may be from course readings, lectures, and textbooks. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these references.
- Include citations to support the statements made and for each of the references listed on your reference slide(s).
Utilize the following headings to organize the content in your work:
- Historical Development and Current Role in Healthcare Delivery
- Political Influence
- Quality, Safety, and Competition
- Future Challenges and Issues
Submit the project as a PowerPoint file or link to the presentation if hosted on another site (such as YouTube). A link to the online presentation can be put into a Word document and submitted. Do not submit the presentation as a .pdf file. Your instructor is unable to see the presentation notes when submitted as a .pdf file.
I already chose Mental and Behavioral Health. Please work on this topic.
