Applied summary paper Student’s name Institutional affiliation Professor Date Abstract Healthcare in the United States still lags behind despite the implementation of Affordable Care Act. The high costs of health care hinder access to health services and lower the quality of care. However since ACA reforms were implemented the health systems in the U.S have significantly changed promising a better future if effective reforms are implemented. Access to healthcare has improved considerably due to the expanded coverage and simplified eligibility which has reduced the number of uninsured people. Quality of healthcare is also low given the high mortality in America. As discussed in this paper the future of healthcare relies heavily on the practical implementation of reforms supported by both the public and private sectors. Introduction Public health is pivotal to any State’s economic growth. The concept of public health relies on theory experience and evidence obtained from population access to care.
