Ashford 6: - Week 5 - Final Presentation


Final Presentation

For your Final Presentation you will be presenting on the U.S. healthcare system. Imagine you are a community health director educating a group of new healthcare professionals on the U.S. healthcare system. You have been asked to create a PowerPoint presentation, which includes the elements listed below:

Note: You will be using Part 1 from week three for the first section of the Final Presentation. Please make sure to correct issues and address any recommendations from your instructor's Week 3 Assignment feedback.

Introduction:Include a title slide. Next, include an introductory slide where you introduce yourself and explain what you are about to present.
Part I: The U.S. Healthcare System – Define the U.S. healthcare system by addressing the items below: 

  • Describe the history of the U.S. health care system.      Include at least three of the revolutionary factors (e.g., teacher’s union      in Dallas, Texas; the American Medical Association; Civil War, and the      First Marine Hospital, etc.). Chapter two in our textbook discusses the      evolution of our system and is a good resource for this part of your      presentation.
  • Identify at least one major development from each of      the following: financial, legal, ethical, regulatory, and social [i.e.,      consumer demand]) that transformed the system into what it is today. You      may want to revisit the health care timelines available in your course      textbook.   
  • Differentiate the stakeholders and their roles (i.e.,      health care professionals, clients [patients], government, colleges, and      health care agencies. 
    • Include the positive and negative contributions of how       they affect our health care system. 

 Part II: The Cost of the U.S. Healthcare System 

  • Describe the costs and how they are set (i.e.,      reimbursement methods, managed care organizations, Medicare, Medicaid, and      private insurance).
  • Explain how technology has affected costs (e.g., EHR,      medical research, equipment improvements like MRI, mammography, etc.) and      delivery of quality care (e.g., personalized medicine, mobile services      like ePrescribing, disease registries, etc.).

 Part III: The United States Versus Other Health Care Systems—an International Perspective

  • Contrast the U.S. health care system with at least one      other (e.g., Canada’s universal health care vs. U.S. healthcare or South      Africa vs. U.S. health care, etc.). 
    • Include at least one positive aspect from the other       country's health care system that you would like to see added to the U.S.       healthcare system. Explain why you would like to see this in our system.

 Part IV: Reforms and Improvements 

  • Describe any potential reforms and improvements that      are currently being discussed at either the local, state, or federal      level. Your work must be based upon scholarly research, not media      commentary. 
    • Examples could include the following: 
      • Federal modifications (i.e., Medicare reform,        repealing PPACA, universal type system, etc.) 
      • State modifications(i.e., Medicaid reform, income tax        credits, etc.)
      • Increased consumer controls

Note: The PPACA is not an appropriate reform or improvement to be described here because it is already law and not a future improvement. However, if there is a proposal to amend or eliminate, then you can include that potential reform.

Conclusion:Future of the U.S. healthcare system

  • Explain what you believe the U.S. healthcare system      will look like in the next 10 years. Give at least two recommendations for      change.
  • Address access to care, quality of care, and cost of      care including an example of each in your vision of our future healthcare      system. 

  Creating the Final Presentation
The Final Presentation must:

  • Be 15 to 20 slides, which includes Part 1, (excludes      the title slide and reference slides) and formatted according to APA style      as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
  • Be presented using Microsoft PowerPoint slide      presentation.  You have a choice of one of the following options for      adding the narrative to your presentation. Option 1 is using voice or      Option 2 is adding speaker notes to each slide.
    • Option 1: Recording your voice on each slide. You can       view the tutorial using this link: adding and       recording voiceto each slide.You can also       click on the following links to view the Accessibility Statementand Privacy Policy. If you choose this option, you must include your APA       formatted citation in the speaker note section of the PPT as well.
      • Note: if you use the voice option, make sure your        recordings are clear and concise. It is also important to know that        adding voice narrations that are too lengthy and adding graphics may        cause your PPT file to be very large (megabytes). You may have trouble        loading it to Waypoint. Revisions may be necessary if this occurs.
    • Option 2: Using speaker notes for each slide in the       PPT. You can review the tutorial using this link: adding speaker notes      to your presentation. You can also click on the following links to view       the Accessibility Statement, and the Privacy Policy
      • Speaker notes are the typed notes that appear below        the slide that complement the presentation slides. Whereas the slides        will have short bulleted items, the speaker notes will be more detailed.        They are essentially what the presenter would say during the presentation        to explain each of the bulleted points on the slide. Therefore, it is        important that the speaker notes are concise and detailed when        explaining the bullet points.

  • It is recommended that PowerPoint Slides contain no       more than five bullet points and should not contain more than 5 - 7 words       each. Do not type paragraphs or long sentences on the slide. The       information that explains each bullet point is conveyed via speaker notes       or by recording your voice to each slide.
  • It is required that the Microsoft PowerPoint       presentation include the use of a voice or speaker notes. If you choose       to use the voice capabilities within PowerPoint, you must include your       citations in the speaker notes for each slide.
  • Be visually engaging. For assistance with designing the      visuals for your presentation, view the video Don McMillan: Life after death by PowerPoint(click on the following links to view the Accessibility Statementor the Privacy Policy) or the PowerPoint Best      Practicestool. 
  • Include a title slide with the following: 
    • Title of the presentation
    • Student name
    • Course name and number
    • Instructor name
    • Date submitted
  • Address the sections in the order outlined above      (Introduction, Part I, II, III, and IV).
  • Present the issues with critical thought.
  • Use at least two scholarly sources (none of which      should be media commentary, at least one should be from the Ashford University      Library).
  • Document all sources in APA format (including graphics,      charts and pictures that may be used within the presentation). Wikimedia Commonsis a recommended source for creative commons images      (to view the privacy policy, click here).
  • Include a separate reference slide formatted according      to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

If you are unable to access the technology for this assignment due to a documented accommodations on file with the Office of Access and Wellness, inform your instructor as soon as possible.
