Power Point Group Assignment
Instructions: In at least a three to four-student team (some teams may vary in the number of student partners due to class size), please prepare 20 slides on the topics that follow:
*Imagine that you and your coworkers/colleagues are delivering this presentation at the Annual Conference of Healthcare Executives in Orlando, Florida.
Please prepare a 20 slide Power Point presentation with presenter’s notes in which you focus on a single dimension of performance of the U.S. health care delivery system. Please examine how performance on this dimension is influenced by the organization and financing of health care in the U.S. and behavior of key health system stakeholders, what must be improved or reformed to achieve performance gains in your selected area, and the implications of your analysis for health policy and management. You may focus on performance in a broadly-defined area (such as quality of care, cost or access to care, balancing internal/external costs, dealing with regulatory agencies,) or you may define your focus more narrowly within one of these categories (e.g., quality of care for chronically-ill elderly patients, cost-effectiveness of new medical technologies, access to specialized care for low-income populations). In your analysis, please consider all stakeholders relevant to your specified focus—providers, payers and purchasers, patients, communities, policy-makers, and other groups that play a role in performance in your focal area—and be sure to examine performance and implications for reform at both the policy and delivery system levels.
