HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:

Please view the following videos in preparation for this assignment:

Scott, R. (Reporter). (2013, August 14). Outpatient services . Retrieved from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWKoMJoFI2I

Having completed the required readings and viewed the videos, you should now have a basic understanding of the characteristics and components of the United States health care delivery system. Health care delivery is no longer confined to the hospital setting. Over the past few years we have witnessed the emergence of outpatient surgery centers, home health, hospice, etc.

For this assignment, conduct additional research as needed to address the following questions:

1. What factors have led to care being offered outside of the hospital setting?

2. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these settings? Who benefits the most: consumers or organizations?

3. How has the Affordable Care Act (ACA) impacted this trend? Has it encouraged more alternative settings or put care back into the hospital setting? Explain.

Length: Submit a 3-page paper, not including the cover page and the reference list.
