Healthcare Policy Analysis Paper Expectations

Back to Top

Topic (Week 2): 30 points

It is expected that you will provide a focused topic that identifies a problem/issue of concern and the legislation that is/has/will address the problem. Once you have identified your legislation, you will not be allowed to change. Complete some preliminary research to ensure that you have enough sources and information available to meet both the page length and number of source requirements.

Topics such as HIPAA and Medicare (for example) are too broad for this assignment. You need to focus your topic on a specific aspect, such as the Privacy Rules of HIPAA or the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit.

Outline (Week 5): 60 points

It is expected that the Outline be submitted in a formal outline format as demonstrated below. Your outline should show enough detail to demonstrate that you have begun thinking about the organization of your paper and the research required for the topic.
