Future Direction of Health Care

In a three- to five-page paper:

Describe a minimum of five challenges from the list below that are defining the future strategic direction of health care.
Proposed health care reform and legislation
Information technology advancements including the electronic medical, or health, record (EMR/EHR)
Accreditation, quality of healthcare, and organizational compliance
Economics, including third party payers, future funding, rising costs, the Medicare and Medicaid programs
Access to health care including the uninsured and those in the poverty levels
Public entities in controlling the demand aspects of health service
Market shares and advancing age of population
Maintaining a skilled workforce
Pay for Performance
Describe how an organization can adapt its direction and strategies accordingly.

Your paper must be three to five double-spaced pages (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Utilize a minimum of two scholarly and/or peer-reviewed sources that were published within the last five years. One source must be obtained from the Ashford Library. All sources must be documented in APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
