Introduction and Payment System Proposal


As a way of introducing yourselves to your instructor and peers, please post the following:

  • Your name and a description of your current job (if not employed, what are your expectations when you complete this program?)
  • A photo of yourself (self-portrait, family, or action photo)
  • Describe something you like to do outside of school (hobby, sport, activity)

Managed care has been one of the main systems for payment in the healthcare field for many years, yet there are still problems inherent within the system. As healthcare reform continues, one topic constantly discussed is the need for a new, better payment system.


  • Describe the kind of payment system that would be best for reforming the current process, providing a rationale to support ideas.
  • If given the opportunity to implement the payment system described, what steps would need to be taken to ensure it is successful?
    • Make a list of the steps.
  • Explain any potential issues that may be encountered during the implementation of the process.

Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format. This topic is valued at 20 points. Please review post and response expectations. Please review the rubric to ensure that your response meets criteria.
