Content Requirements:
Introduction paragraph (minimum 4 sentences) – Last sentence is a thesis sentence
Briefly introduce the topic
The last sentence of this paragraph should be your thesis statement. A thesis statement clearly states what your paper will cover and gives an overview of the points you will make.
Hint: Write your thesis sentence last. That way you can focus the flow of information within the body of your paper and then make your thesis sentence match all topics at the end of your writing.
Example: “This paper will explore various health systems around the world and how they compare to the United States using dimensions such as quality of care and access.”

Dimensions of Health Care paragraph
Click here for the international comparison of health systems article posted in Canvas to complete this section of the paper (Links to an external site.).
In 1-2 sentences for each dimension, define all 5 dimensions (care process, access, administrative efficiency, equity, and health care outcomes) that are used to evaluate the health care systems of each country.
Define each dimension of health care. Do not describe how each dimension relates to the U.S. or other countries at this time.
Be sure to summarize this information into your own words to avoid plagiarism.

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) paragraph(s)
Section overview: The PPACA encompasses many components addressing health care in the U.S. You will start by describing 2 specific components of the law. In your research, you will find that some components of the PPACA have been changed since it was signed into law in 2010. Research and report if the parts you describe have changed, and what their impact has had on our healthcare system.
Component 1 paragraph – Identify and describe a main component of the PPACA. Main components include specific aspects of the policy. For example, allowing children to stay on their parents’ health insurance until 26 years old.
Describe this specific component (minimum of 2 substantive sentences)
Identify if and how this component has changed since the PPACA became law (1 sentence)
Provide data/statistics/numbers describing the impact this component has had on our healthcare system (minimum of 1 substantive sentence)
Component 2 paragraph – Identify and describe another main component of the PPACA.
Describe this specific component (minimum of 2 substantive sentences)
Identify if and how this component has changed since the PPACA became law (1 sentence)
Provide data/statistics/numbers describing the impact this component has had on our healthcare system (minimum of 1 substantive sentence)

Conclusion paragraph (minimum 4 sentences)
Now that you have researched health care in the U.S. and abroad, you have the opportunity to share your viewpoint of U.S. health care. The goal of this paragraph is to describe your opinion of the current direction of health care reform in the U.S. (Students are expected to use first person in this paragraph).
Some possible discussions in this paragraph could include:
Ways the PPACA affects the U.S. health care system
Ways you have personally been affected by changes in health care since the implementation of the PPACA
What you specifically like/dislike about the PPACA
