healthcare research paper
Your Course Project is a comparative analysis of the U.S. healthcare system against that of Gremany.
Review the Course Project guide (template) in Doc Sharing. It is only a guide; you do not have to write your paper verbatim from the outline in the guide. Reviewing it will help you formulate your own Course Project paper outline and guide you in your research. An outline is very important because it helps you to organize research topics and write your paper. It also helps the flow of your paper (i.e., transitions from one subtitle topic to the next).
The project requirement is a 6- to 10-page paper. Note that 6–10 pages means 6–10 pages of double-spaced written material with 1-inch margins on the left, right, top, and bottom and a 12-point font. The cover sheet, table of contents, index, pictures, long quotations, or multiple quotations, will not count toward the 6–10 pages. APA format is required.
As you conduct your research, seek out quality primary sources for writing your paper. In Doc Sharing, there is a comprehensive database of healthcare statistics for 30 different countries, including the United States, from the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD). This is an international organization that collects healthcare data. This document has 1,200 different data series, with a time series from 1960 to 2008. It is used by the World Health Organization, the United States, and other OECD participants, as well as the entire world, in order to determine what may be the most efficient and effective way to deliver healthcare. The OECD HCQI data will show where these 30 developed countries are in regards to healthcare services and which of these countries are making progress improvements
