MUST Use Rubric Communication Format
Write an Essay using APA style that:
1) Identifies and discusses the macro-trends affecting the future of the US healthcare system, including such aspects as the overall economy, demographics, personal lifestyles and behaviors, technology (including biotechnology and smartphones), and federal and state government policies. Note that these factors are neither exhaustive nor are they offered as a mandatory framework; your research will identify macro-trends relevant to your findings.
2) Use the above analysis to ALSO identify FIVE (5) CAREER OPPORTUNITIES for healthcare managers in 2020. Be sure to explicitly LINK each job opportunity with the specific trends identified in your analysis.
A minimum of FIVE (5) references to independent research journals, official government sources, or non-vested technical reports must be incorporated and cited using APA style.
Be sure to support your conclusions with appropriate source material. Conclusions are not just your opinion. Each conclusion must be CLEARLY LINKED to externally valid sources of information.
Prepare your essay in MS Word with 1-inch margins on all sides, double-spaced and 12 pt. Times New Roman font; and upload it to the assignment folder. A title sheet, abstract, body of the paper, and reference list are all required for this paper. Please note that the FOUR (4) page limit applies to the body of the paper.
Submit your final draft to your Industry (Writing) Coach one week before its due date.
After incorporating feedback from your Coach, resubmit your final paper to the Professor.
(The Presentation: made to my group upon completion) as a background reference point:
Much of todays communication is done through a variety of electronic tools made available through the internet. E-mails, texting, interactive web sites, cloud technology (like Google Drive), video chats, and social media are all important in how we communicate with each other. The challenge of your Presentation is to communicate the basic findings of your Teams Term Paper to your classmates, your Professor, and Coach through the use of a virtual presentation tool as if your Team was reporting your findings to a global audience of people located in thousands of different locations around the world.
The Presentation must be designed to be asynchronous. This means, just like our Discussions Board, it can be viewed at any time as a self-contained presentation without the direct participation of any Team member.
While Prezi and Google Sites are specific examples of the kind of virtual tools your Team might use, each Team is strongly encouraged to explore, experiment, and creatively use the best tool available for communicating their findings. Simply sending a recorded PowerPoint Presentation to everyone as an e-mail attachment will not meet the requirements for this assignment.
