This critique will also help identify how to improve the U.S. healthcare system and its outcomes. For this paper you will analyze one aspect of the healthcare system (Germany) across two separate countries (the U.S and Germany).
You will evaluate the assigned aspect of the healthcare system through the lens of the golden triangle (cost, quality, and access) Also remember, this cannot be accomplished without providing historical context, and political and social issues, and values, etc. Once you have presented the evidence about each country you will provide discussion. Which country provides this service better? What can the U.S. learn. What is the U.S. doing correctly?Each individual student will create an annotated bibliography related to their topic.
