I need to answer to this post. APA format, reference and citation are very important
The landscape of healthcare continues to change as the needs of those who need the services live longer and face multiple illnesses due to genetics, lifestyle, or just by luck. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) aims to provide better care, better health, and be cost-effective (Nash, Fabius, Skoufalos, Clarke, & Horowitz, 2016). The ACA enables millions to become insured and contained several tools to maintain cost (Emanuwl, Sharfstain, Spiro, & O’Toole, 2016). Even with these goals, the ACA must continue to strive to better serve the changing healthcare arena. Many initiatives have been created, and much more are still in the process.
The CDC website list several initiatives, strategies and action plan aimed to improve health care (CDC, 2017). Listed is a few of them.
- Chronic Disease _The National Action Plan for Cancer Survivorship- establishes awareness on issues faced by survivors
- Healthy People- Awareness of health topics with resources and data
- National Strategy for Suicide Prevention-Resources on mental health issues, substance abuse, and suicide hotline
- US National Vaccine Plan- Ensures safe supply and access, prevention strategies for prevention and disease of vaccines
