Using what you’ve learned so far, outline features of an ideal healthcare policy. Keep in mind that, despite your wisdom and noble intentions, resources are limited. What are several of the policy items you want to focus on immediately?
For example, would you mandate a national Electronic Health Record (EHR) system? If so, how would it be funded? What policy items might you develop to improve population health?
Discuss with your fellow classmates the policy items you propose and talk about the impact of the policy items on the health care system and overall public health.
