Having completed the required readings and viewed the videos, you should now have a basic understanding of the characteristics and components of the United States health care delivery system.

For this assignment, conduct additional research as needed to address the following questions:
1. What factors have led to care being offered outside of the hospital setting?
2. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these settings? Who benefits the most: consumers or organizations?
3. How has the Affordable Care Act (ACA) impacted this trend? Has it encouraged more alternative settings or put care back into the hospital setting? Explain.
Length: Submit a 3-page paper, not including the cover page and the reference list.
