This Competency Assessment assesses the following outcome(s):

GEL-1.02: Demonstrate college-level communication through the composition of original materials in Standard English.
Evaluating a Health Care System
The purpose of this Assessment is to select one health care system from around the world and, using evidence-based and peer-reviewed resources, evaluate the effectiveness of the system.
You read about a number of health care delivery systems throughout the world. Using research with three evidence-based, peer-reviewed resources, the final step in understanding each health care system is evaluating its effectiveness for the population it serves. In this 2–3-page evaluative essay, excluding the title page and reference page, you will discuss:
An introduction to the health care system you have chosen to evaluate (any country BUT the U.S.’s healthcare system) (1 paragraph)
The population’s access to health care (1 paragraph)
The type of health care delivery system (i.e., publicly funded, private, single payer, etc.) (2–3 paragraphs)
The effectiveness of the healthcare system for the population (3–4 paragraphs)
A brief comparison to the U.S. healthcare system (may use a simple chart or table)
Conclusion (1 paragraph)
Note: The number of paragraphs is a suggestion, not a requirement, and the evaluative essay should be continuous writing with a sustained point of view. Learner autonomy can be used to develop the amount of content you include within the page limitations of the Assessment.
You must include at least three evidence-based, peer-reviewed resources to support your ideas. These include .gov and .org professional websites, journal articles, and your textbook(s).
You must include headings in your paper indicating each section. This is a key concept to professional writing. It is also a fantastic method for ensuring you have met all Assessment requirements. Use the grading rubric as a checklist once you are completed to verify you have addressed all components of the Assessment.
Minimum Submission Requirements
Before finalizing your work, you should:
this Assessment should be a Microsoft Word (minimum 2-3 pages) document, in addition to the title and reference pages.
