The U.S. Health Care System: Part 1

g., Doctors, Registered Nurses, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, etc.) are unfamiliar with the day-to-day operations addressing practice management, insurance coverage requirements (e.g., referrals, pre-authorizations), credentialing, accreditation, state and federal regulations, health care laws, and reimbursement methods. Their educational focus has been on learning how to diagnose and treat patients. Therefore, understanding the operational aspect in practice management is imperative to the financial viability of their future practice.
The CEO of the largest health care teaching hospital in the area asked you to present an overview of the U.S. health care system to newly graduated health care professionals (e.g., Primary Physicians, Specialists, Hospitalists, Internists, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants). You have been tasked with creating a PowerPoint presentation that includes the elements outlined below.
This assignment is the first part of a comprehensive presentation you will develop on the U. S. health care system. The presentation will provide an overview of the U.S. health care system. Follow the instructions below to complete the assignment.
For this assignment, you will prepare a 7- to 9-slide PowerPoint presentation with detailed speaker’s notes of 100-150 words for each slide, not including the title and reference slides.Please see the HCA205 PowerPoint Instructions Download HCA205 PowerPoint Instructionsdocument for expanded information on expected detail in your presentation.
Title Slide and Introduction:
Begin your presentation by including a title slide (see specifics below). In the speaker’s notes of this slide, include your introductory information, which will include your degree plan and any health care experience you have had or share your qualifications related to the information you are presenting. If you have no health care experience, you can be creative with professional experience.
Next, create an overview slide that describes the required components to be covered within the presentation. Add bulleted points for each of the topics being covered. You are required to elaborate on each bullet point shown on the slide in the speaker’s notes section below the slide.
The remaining slides will address the content of the presentation and the references. The content will address the following required components:
Choose one revolutionary factor from each of the centuries (17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st) found in your textbook and time line.
Describe each revolutionary factor.
Discuss how the revolutionary factors changed the health care system.Refer to the time line simulation Global Perspectives: Shifts in Science and Medicine That Changed Healthcare (Links to an external site.) reviewed in Week 1. Chapter 2 in your textbook discusses the evolution of our health care system and is a good resource for this part of the presentation as well.

Identify at least one major development from each of the following perspectives: financial, legal, ethical, regulatory, and social (e.g., consumer demand).
Discuss how each development transformed the system into what it is For more perspective, you may want to review the time line simulation Global Perspectives: Shifts in Science and Medicine That Changed Healthcare (Links to an external site.).
Choose three different stakeholders that have affected the health care system (e.g., health care professionals [physicians, nurses, etc.], clients [patients], health insurance plans [Blue Cross Blue Shield, managed care organizations (MCOs), etc.], federal or state governments, health care professional organizations [American Medical Association (AMA), American Nurses Association (ANA), etc.] and health care accreditation agencies [Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), The Joint Commission, National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), etc.]).Evaluate each stakeholder’s effect on the health care system by discussing their purpose and impact.
Include examples of both positive and negative impacts made by your chosen stakeholders (e.g., a negative contribution is when a patient uses the emergency room for nonurgent care).
