1. In 400 words write on two of the downloads that in your judgment indicate where health care industry leaders should focus their attention immediately, or describe two other areas that you feel are urgent for the attention of health care industry leaders. Give rationale for your selections and use at least two peer-reviewed professional references and your textbook, but not the assigned articles, i.e. use information from professional references beyond the assignments.
2. What about the “thousand dollar pill” or expensive medical devices referred to in Steven Brill’s book. Do drug and medical device price controls need to be addressed by the government, and if so, how should that be done? Use at least two peer-reviewed professional references in addition to your textbook and the Brill book.
3. In the last 50 years, SARS, AIDS, Ebola, Zika, and other diseases, in addition to bioterrorism have captured our attention. Do you think our health care system is well prepared for such challenges? Use at least two peer-reviewed professional references in addition to your textbook.
