www.newtonhelp.com

HCS 455 Week 2 Policy Choice Worksheet Policies are constantly reviewed and considered to help improve the federal, state, or local health care systems. Each one has the potential to affect each of us on a daily basis, so careful consideration must be given when policies are proposed. It is important to understand the process of how a topic eventually becomes a policy. Choose a health care topic for which a policy might be created, OR choose a specific policy that has already been passed into law. Be sure to look ahead and choose a policy topic that will be suitable for both parts of this assignment, due in Weeks Three, Four, and Five. Your topic should be rather narrow. For example, “women’s health” would be too broad, but a policy to encourage women to get mammograms would be narrow enough to apply the policy creation concepts discussed later in the class. Submit the worksheet. This worksheet is designed to help you think through your topic choice. Use APA format to cite throughout the worksheet and to list references. You do not need to add any type of title page or separate reference page. Just ensure that citations are used correctly throughout the worksheet and list your references in the reference section of the worksheet.

You must answer each question thoroughly. Below are detailed instructions regarding what you need to cover for each stage. Remember, you are only assigned one stage.

This assignment requires the use of three sources, one of which must be the course text, Longest (2016).

Your worksheet must include APA-formatted citations, and you must list references at the end of the worksheet.

Content requirements for policy process stages:

Formulation: Define policy formulation–how does a topic become part of the policy agenda and become proposed as a policy? Explain the


process to formulate your policy, including the events that led to the policy proposal, the involvement of stakeholders and the role of special interest groups in this stage.

Legislative Stage: Define the legislative stage. Include an explanation of how the legislative body debates policies and approves policies; the role of committees, the role of the executive branch as relevant to your policy’s legislative process, and the way that stakeholder voices are heard in this stage.

Implementation: define implementation and explain how public policies are put into action. Discuss how your policy was put into place. Identify the accountable parties–agencies, state or federal departments, etc.– and their roles in the implementation of your policy.

Evaluation/Analysis: Discuss how a policy is evaluated and analyzed. Differentiate between evaluation and analysis. Describe how your policy would be evaluated. What would you need to know to determine if the policy is working or not? What type of data would be used in analysis? Where would that data come from? Give specific examples.

Revision Stage: How are policies revised? Do they need to be voted on? Can a regulatory change be issued? Consider your specific policy choice. Has it been revised? If so, why was it revised? What was the revision process? If it has not been revised, do you think it needs to be revised? Why? What would the revision process look like?


Use at least three sources (you may need more). One of those sources must be the course text, Longest (2016). Use APA format for citations and references in your worksheet.

HCS 455 Week 3 The Policy Process

The policy cycle approach provides lawmakers with a pathway for developing a policy and guiding it through the institutions of the U.S. government. The cycle starts with identification of a targeted problem and ultimately ends with a specific course of action. Along the way, the outcomes of a policy are subjected to various levels of review, evaluation, and revisions that result in a continual loop. In essence, the policy cycle is a series of interlocking steps that facilitates a dialogue between the main stakeholders. As a health care administrator, it’s important to have a working knowledge of the process and how the


process ultimately leads to implementation of health care laws that eventually will impact what you do.

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper that explains the policy process. Your paper should include the following:

Explain the various stages and the key components associated with each stage in the policy process.

Discuss formulation, legislation, implementation, evaluation, analysis, and revision.

Identify who the main stakeholders are for each stage in the policy process.

Cite at least 3 reputable references. Reputable references include trade or industry publications; government or agency websites; scholarly works; your textbook, Health Policymaking in the United States (6th ed.); or other sources of similar quality.
