Topic 10 Assignment: Research Paper
For this assignment, submit the research paper you have been working on over the past few weeks.
This scholarly paper should be over the topic of your choice in the area of health care cost cutting and cost effectiveness of providing care. This broad “umbrella topic” provides you with a plethora of topics such as diagnosis-related groups, HMOs, PPOs, movement to ambulatory care, managed care, generic drug use, etc.
The paper is due the last day of class. This paper must:
- be at least 5 pages (double-spaced) not including cover page or references
- include at least 5 references from peer-reviewed journals or professional web sites that are no more than 5 years old
- be written in APA style with appropriate in-text citations, a reference list and a cover page (abstract not required). For information on APA style, view the NAU Online Library’s “APA Style” page.
