Week 1 Assignment: Healthcare Costs

Many Americans are concerned with the topic of healthcare costs, but not many understand the complexity of the topic. Write a two- three-page paper that addresses the following: Explain the factors that are driving healthcare costs, and discuss the effects they have on both inpatient and outpatient facilities. Do some research on a hospital or healthcare setting where you would like to work. Outline their financial structure; are they a nonprofit, for-profit, or government facility? Explain the costs associated with their financial structure. Detail how you as a healthcare administrator can affect these costs, both positively and negatively. Your paper must be formatted in accordance with APA guidelines, and you must use at least two scholarly references with appropriate citations. Visit the WCU library to locate additional research on the topic. Your textbook may be used as a reference. The APA format for your text is as follows: Langabeer, J. R., & Helton, J. (2016). Health care operations management: A systems perspective (2nd ed.). Burlington, MA: Jones & Bartlett Learning.
