“Decision-making for end-of-life care has earned paramount importance as it has capability to prolong human life with the support of medical technologies or can let the natural death process continue by foregoing the treatment option.

Rather, much of what mainstream healthcare providers are able to do is in response to a form of legislation, implemented by a federal governmental agency. Insofar as this is true, then it is safe for one to assume that, in light of the recent Supreme Court decision—which upheld constitutionality in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—that it is integral for the overarching need nurses have in meeting professional demands.

Before conducting this research I hypothesized that physicians’ experiences could help improve health policy and health law. My hypothesis was based on the fact that physicians have first-hand experience with what is going on in the healthcare system and are the ones that have to carry out health laws and policies. So, by listening to the experiences of physicians, policymakers could gain insight on what is working, not working and what needs to be improved within the healthcare system. The question that this study focused on was what is the hospitalist experience with New York’s Family Health Care Decisions Act (2010) at the University of Rochester Medical Center? In regard to this Act I wanted to see how using hospitalists’ experiences could be used to improve the Act.

In the United States health care is one of the most crucial and largest sectors that seek to provide a healthy way of life for society. In aiming to fulfill such motive, there are various challenges that develop which ultimately results in ineffective medical care to Americans. One of the prevalent challenges is to improve the quality of care to patients. This issue can be further broken down into other areas including: cost of health care, access of resources, and patient- provider communication.

For example, the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is two that are significant however, not the only two policy issues that have raised national attention. A question of should the federal and state governments have control of healthcare policy or the question of the policies generally supported by both parties? Healthcare reform was mainly put in place to ban the insurers’ from discrimination against pre-existing conditions, limits on age discrimination, and the elimination of lifetime caps. The health care system in the United States consists of a network of physicians, patients, hospitals, insurers, employers, regulators, and stakeholders.
Imperialism has affected the world in various ways. Imperialism has many benefits that we still use today. The world wouldn't be as advanced today if it weren't for spread of technology, healthcare, and language. One example is that health care got deadly diseases under control. With language spread, more cultures were influenced.
