‘Ideal Health System’ – Individual Paper (200 points)

The purpose of this assignment is to allow students to create their “ideal health system” with respect to cost, access, and quality.  Students will analyze problems and solutions, issues and trends of their ideal health system. Students will work individually on this assignment.


The ‘Ideal Health System’ can mirror one in existence somewhere today (ie: a county) or it can be completely fabricated based on fact finding and research (ie: Crystal’s Creative Care). Please note: the information you write about will have been found somewhere – therefore that resource needs to be properly cited.

Thoroughly describe how your proposed health system will function in terms of Cost (page 1 – entire page), Access (page 2 – entire page), and Quality (page 3 – entire page).*

–Pages 4 and 5*:

Address at least 2 issues that will be present with your new system. What are the solutions to these two issues? (2 entire pages)
