I would like you to review the second assignment for this week: it is worth 100 points and there is a rubric that you can view. Please don’t submit just a sentence of what you intend to study for your final paper, but instead, in paragraph format, explain in a bit of detail what you would like to submit for your final paper. Three-five paragraphs should suffice, with several reference so that you know your idea is current. Also, when developing your idea, make sure it is narrow enough that you can write a paper with substance, since many topics are too broad to succinctly address.
THE ABOVE NOTES IS FOR THE BOTTOM NOTES
I would be creative. The assignment states: “Select a research topic that integrates a healthcare reform issue (insurance, doctor-patient relationships, medical records, patient privacy, HMOs, etc.) with healthcare management.” I would not select doctor-patient relationships, nor patient privacy as there is limited information. Perhaps a specific perspective of the ACA, new OHSA guidelines, pharmaceutical costs or some similar topics.
Final Project Topic Submission
Rather than a final examination, you will have a Final Project for this course.
Select a research topic that integrates a healthcare reform issue (insurance, doctor-patient relationships, medical records, patient privacy, HMOs, etc.) with healthcare management (Planning, Organizing, Controlling, HR management, etc.).
Submit your topic to the professor this week via the Final Project Topic Submission drop box.
The remainder of your project will be due in Week 8.
For your project you will write a 5 to 6 page paper and include the following:
- Introduce the topic you are interested in learning about.
- Write why you selected the topic
- Identify and explain any issues.
- Discuss historical developments of your healthcare reform issue (how did it become an issue and where does the issue stand today?).
- Discuss how the issue affects healthcare management including suggestions for effective management in regards to dealing with the issue in healthcare settings.
Include material from our readings and utilize the university library to research at least 9 current scholarly, peer-reviewed references published within the past 5 years. Cite all references and utilize APA format.
