The Affordable Care Act (ACA) targets some of the major problems in the U.S. health care system. While the ACA is purposed to solve problems, in many ways it has created new challenges for employers, patients and providers. Investigating problems in the U.S. health care system requires an understanding of the theoretical frameworks and research being applied to the problem. In nearly every case, research exists to adequately frame the issue; however, applying this research at the organizational level can be daunting. This assignment is purposed to help students succinctly and clearly articulate a current problem in the U.S. health care system.
