Sections of paper should be divided out into; A. Trends, A1. Impact, A2. Legislation


Competency 705.4.1: Health Policy – The graduate effectively interprets health policy initiatives. Competency 705.4.2: Health Legislation – The graduate analyzes strategies that impact health legislation.


Healthcare does not operate in a vacuum. Trends that emerge in the national market are influenced by legislation, delivery of care, changes in payment methods, and social and economic conditions. Healthcare professionals monitor policy at the national level by reviewing legislative initiatives and analyzing rules and regulations. Understanding healthcare policy helps in facilitating grant reviews and in developing new program initiatives. Legislation may cause changes in the way hospitals and healthcare providers deliver patient care. It is beneficial for hospitals to incorporate the national trends, policy, and legislation in determining the appropriate path for selecting service lines. You will use the “Service Line Development Case Study” to complete this task. Imagine that you have received a memo asking you to identify national trends, policy, and legislation and to summarize the impact it will have on the new service line. The proposed service lines are the following:

• Orthopedic center
• Cardiovascular center • Cancer center


A. Identify current national healthcare trends and policy initiatives that may affect the healthcare organization evident in the attached “Service Line Development Case Study.”

1. Discuss how the identified trends impact the delivery of healthcare in the case study. 2. Discuss possible legislation that may result from these trends.

B. When you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.
