Analyzing Federal or State Healthcare Policy 


For the wrap-up of this course, it is time to weave together all the knowledge that you have gained. The goal of this project is to integrate what you have learned throughout the course into an interconnected exploration of a specific healthcare policy.

For the Portfolio Project, you will complete a two-part assignment (further explained below). 

Pretend that you are making an appearance before a community group that is having a policy explained to them for the first time. 

Imagine that the group has no knowledge of what happens behind the scenes to create and implement a healthcare policy. 

The two documents are as follows:

1. A mind map (use the WiseMappingLinks to an external site. tool) depicting the essential points and sub-points of your topic. Note: Think of the mind map as a visual outline of your responses to the questions listed below.

2. A narrative explanation that covers the rationale, research, and processes involved in creating this healthcare policy. The insight gathered should be delivered as a presentation and should serve as the commentary to accompany the mind map if it were being presented to the group mentioned above. The presentation should include a narrative explanation with speaker’s notes and 8-10 slides (not including your title, references, or the appendix).

In this Portfolio Project, you will analyze either a federal healthcare policy or a state healthcare policy (it cannot be the same policy selected for any previous assignments). Select a specific federal or state healthcare policy to review. Provide information related to the following points:


Explain the initial introduction process of the original policy. Who developed it and/or sponsored it?

Assess the research that was conducted and/or analyzed to determine the need for the policy. Why is this policy needed?

Does this policy address any specific known disparities?

Evaluate the impact, or intended impact, of the policy. Please consider the viewpoints of multiple stakeholders (citizens, providers, government agencies, etc.), including any possible financial impact.

Note: After you have completed the mind map, take a screenshot and insert the image into an appendix. The appendixLinks to an external site. should be the last page of your document.

Your presentation should include a narrative explanation with speaker’s notes and 8 – 10 slides (not including title slide, reference slide, or the mind map appendix. You must include a minimum of 8 credible, academic or professional references (at least 5 of which must be credible/peer-reviewed), including the text and/or course articles if used in your final project. All credible articles selected must be written within the last 4-5 years, however more recent is preferred
