Managing the health of special populations can be a challenge with


Managing the health of special populations can be a challenge with the various economic forces at work. This is especially true in the case of supply and demand of healthcare services. This week, you are going to examine a special population of people, those with cardiac disease, and look at how health insurance affects the health outcomes of this population. Do people with poor insurance or no insurance manage chronic illness less effectively than those with insurance? Does geography or education affect the health outcomes of cardiac patients?

In this Assignment, you will look through the lens of social determinants of health, focusing on three populations to see if we can draw any conclusions regarding the management of the chronic illness of cardiac disease.

To Prepare:

  • Access the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health (2016) provided in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Select three of the five populations provided in the database, and compare profiles for these three populations.
  • Reflect on how the three populations you selected might approach the management of heart disease.
  • Reflect on heart disease risk factors for the three populations you selected.
  • Consider how access to healthcare, Medicare, or Medicaid programs may impact heart disease and health outcomes for these populations.
