The Health Care Scene: Contemporary Trends
health care leaders, it is important to understand that health care is
quite a dynamic field. Its constant changes are a result of continuing
trends in regulation, policy, patient and provider advocacy efforts, as
well as increasingly sophisticated technology and industry benchmarking
For your assignment you review the possible topics for your Senior
Project located in Week Five of your online course or in the “Components
of Course Evaluation” section of this guide, and select the topic your
training program will address. If you choose not to select a topic from
the approved topic list, you must have your original topic approved by
your instructor prior to submitting this assignment.
For this assignment, focus on a specific contemporary trend in health
care and be sure to include all of the following influences:
- Changes in client characteristics
- Regulation of the health care industry
- Reimbursement patterns and mandates
- Restructuring of health care organizations
- Impact of technology
- Ongoing social and ethical factors
Address the information above as it pertains to your selected topic, in
an eight to ten slide (excluding title and reference slides) PowerPoint
Your presentation should conclude with a summary describing the following concerns:
- Overall, why should health care managers be aware of this change and trend?
- What impact does this trend have on the
stakeholder groups involved (e.g., patients, providers, administrators,
third-party payers, legislators, etc.) for a specific organization
specified (e.g., for profit, nonprofit, hospital, outpatient clinic,
nursing home, etc.).
The information in this presentation will later be used
as part of your Senior Project to set the context for the audience you
select for a training program on the contemporary trend identified here.
Your presentation must include detailed speaker’s notes (i.e., at least
150 words) for each slide as well as a minimum of one to two scholarly
sources from the Ashford University Library and one to two current,
scholarly web sources.
Your presentation, and any citations used, must be in APA style as
outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Examples of scholarly web
sources are available in this week’s recommended websites. These sources
will also count toward the required sources for your Senior Project.
Your presentation must be engaging and relevant to your audience. Lines
of text on a slide will not be sufficient for this assignment. It should
contain images, graphics, and/or multimedia that communicate your
training program clearly to your audience.
