Economic Dynamic of Health Care Delivery Models

This week’s first discussion forum will focus on persons diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. 

Select an existing program or service delivery model in your community or surrounding environment (e.g., free-standing clinic, specialized treatment center) that provides services to those impacted by HIV/AIDS. Describe both, direct as well as indirect, costs associated with the program and how the program is evaluated (cost-benefit or cost-effective analysis). Chapter 7 of the course text defines these terms in more detail.

Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by a minimum of two scholarly sources beyond your course text.  Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Analyze regulatory, accreditation, ethical, and legal issues and challenges with respect to your research.
