For this assignment you will create a PowerPoint presentation (12 slide minimum). This analysis will allow you to further examine the role of managers and the responsibilities they hold in the health industry. You will research legal and ethical issues within the healthcare system and use your findings to provide in-depth insight on multiple problems that can arise, as well as how to solve them by utilizing current legislation and organizational resources. You will use a minimum of three credible resources, including two scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles, to support your presentation.
PowerPoint Presentation Prompt
You will create a PowerPoint with at least 10 informative slides that include speaker’s notes. In addition you will include a title slide and a reference slide for a minimum of 12 slides total. You should utilize appropriate photographs, charts, or video to enhance your slides and make them engaging.
For this PowerPoint you will choose one healthcare sector such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, equipment, distribution, facilities, or managed healthcare for your focus.
You will then describe the sector in detail so your audience fully understands the sector. You will include both a general overview of the sector, and how it functions within the healthcare industry.
You will then explore a legal/ethical issue within this sector and apply how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) address and alleviate this issue.
You will use critical thinking skills to analyze the strengths and challenges of using the ACA or HIPAA to alleviate this legal issue.
You will address how organizational behavior can affect quality management’s position on and role in resolving this legal/ethical issue.
Using Sources
You may refer to the course material for supporting evidence, but you must also use at least three credible, outside sources including two scholarly, peer-reviewed journals for this assignment. All resources must be cited using APA format. If you use any lessons as sources, please also cite them in APA format (including the lesson title and instructor’s name). Please include a mix of both primary and secondary sources.
Primary sources are first-hand accounts such as interviews, speeches, company documents, statements and press releases published by the company in question.
Secondary sources come from peer-reviewed scholarly journals, such as the Journal of Management. You may use like JSTOR, Google Scholar, and Social Science Research Network to find articles from these journals. Secondary sources may also come from reputable websites with .gov, .edu, or .org in the domain. (Wikipedia is not a reputable source, though the sources listed in Wikipedia articles may be acceptable.)
