I need help with a English question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

This is a Collaborative Learning Community (CLC) assignment.

The instructor assigned students to their CLC groups in Topic 2.

The most powerful force shaping the U.S. health care delivery system is managed care. As a health care professional, it is vital that you understand the managed care system, as it impacts all stakeholders. The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate your knowledge of managed care.

Create a 12- to 15-slide presentation that includes detailed speaker notes with in-text citations for each slide. In your presentation, explain the following:

  1. What a managed care organization (MCO) is and how MCOs have evolved. Provide an example.
  2. MCO accrediting bodies and the types of care they oversee. Why is this accreditation important?
  3. Types of managed care plans, such as HMOs and PPOs. What are the differences? Why are each important to the health care system?
  4. The impact of MCOs on cost, access, and quality.
  5. What an accountable care organization is and its relationship to MCOs. Provide an example.

A minimum of three references, in addition to your textbook, are required for this assignment.

The instructor will observe the participation within the CLC discussion forums, so all materials and communication should be exchanged in the CLC forum between team members. Individuals not participating may lose points at the end of the assignment.

You will work collaboratively with your groups toward the completion and submission of one presentation. After editing and reviewing, just one person in the group will submit the file.

While GCU style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using GCU documentation guidelines, which can be found in the GCU Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance.
