What Drives Healthcare Spending in the United States Compared to Other Countries






What Drives Healthcare Spending in the United States Compared to Other Countries


Healthcare in the United States has been associated with multiple problems. These include rising costs and decreasing quality. Globally, American healthcare is the most expensive compared to other counties. In 2019, the healthcare expenditure in the United States was approximately $3.8trilion, and more than 4.1 trillion dollars in 2020. This paper will discuss the factors influencing health spending in the United States, the effects of health costs on the US population, and the reasons for low healthcare spending in other Asian countries. The government’s actions in lowering the healthcare cost/ insurance and the effects of lowering healthcare on quality shall also be discussed in the paper.

Factors influencing health spending in the United States

The healthcare services in the United States are very expensive, and these high costs reduce access by low-income earning populations in the states. The unaffordable costs of healthcare services have led to increased cases of mortalities among the American population. The Journal of the American Association (JAMA) study revealed a 50% contribution from health services intensity and prices (New Study Explains Why US Health Care Spending Increased $1 Trillion, 2017). The journal stated some reasons to increase expenses, such as the increasing United States population and the increase in the aging population.

Population growth

The rising population results in increased expenses on healthcare services and funds. The growing population requires increased end extensive healthcare service provision, thus stretching the healthcare resources and services. This results in excessive spending and rising costs in healthcare services. The increase in population size in the United States resulted in an increase in healthcare spending by 23% (Dieleman et al., 2017). The higher the population, the higher the utilization of the various healthcare services.

Increase in the aging population

The rise in the older/ aging population results in increased demand for specialized care. This is due to the terminal and chronic illnesses associated with old age and palliative care needs by geriatric individuals. This increased spending by 12%, increasing service intensity and prices. In addition, the increased variety and complexity of services provided in the healthcare system resulted in increased expenditure by 50%. As a result, the rise in services in the h

Final Paper Presentation

Individual presentation assignment

Based on your research and key findings for the course final research paper, prepare a presentation that is up to 7 minutes in length. The presentation should very briefly overview who are the key stakeholders related to your topic, and then summarize the key findings within the three overarching areas of examination for the research paper. Those three areas of examination are:

1) How is performance of the topic you researched specifically influenced by the health care organization, health care financing, and behavior of key stakeholders?

2) What should be changed with regard to this aspect to achieve improved performance within your selected area(s) of cost, quality, and/or access? Note at least one policy and one delivery system that would need to be reformed.

3) What are your expected implications for these changes? Who would be impacted by the results of this change? How would they be impacted?

Of course, you will not be able to go into detail, given the time limit. You will need to carefully select and summarize the information that you present. The presentation can be presented in any format you would like, provided that it can be readily started when it is your time to present. Given the timeframe, we do not have time to wait long for presentations to load or for people to retrieve the presentation from email. Have the presentation or its linked saved to your desktop or otherwise immediately available to you so you can immediately start presenting when it is your turn.

You will need to submit a copy of the presentation to the instructor—that can be slides or a detailed outline. Sources should be included in a format of your choosing. The presentation should be engaging and creative. Your classmates are responsible for part of your grade, so be sure to engage them. Help your audience to enjoy learning about your research topic. The time-limit will be strictly enforced. Every presentation will be timed. The presentation must end at 7 minutes. NO EXCEPTIONS. Out of fairness to other presenters, presentations continuing past 7 minutes will be stopped and not allowed to continue.

The grading criteria for the presentation include:

1) Organization and clarity of information presented: Was the presentation easy to follow? Did the information logically flow? Was the information presented clearly explained so it could be readily understood? (20% of grade)

2) Content: Did it address the key examination areas? Was it sufficiently explained and understood by the audience, to the extent possible in the time allotted? Was key information included? Did it seem well-researched using reliable sources? (40% of grade)

3) Effect on audience: Did we learn from
