## When you have a question that may be answered as a percentage, answer it instead as a decimal.

Introduction

1. Your answer should show at least the first 3 rounded non-zero digits followed by zeros.
A)  For Example:  If the answer is 278,915, the first 3 rounded non-zero digits is 279 and an answer of 279,000 is acceptable. An answer of 278,915 is also acceptable.
B)  Another Example: Suppose the answer is 0.08297, then an answer of 0.083 is acceptable.  0.0830 and 0.08297 are also acceptable.

2. Do not use currency signs. Suppose the answer is \$40.42, then you should answer 40.4 or 40.42.

3.  Do not use (…) to show negative quantities. If the answer is –0.5192, then do not answer (0.519), rather answer –0.519 or –0.5192.

4. When you have a question that may be answered as a percentage, answer it instead as a decimal. For example, if the answer for a rate of return is 10.5%, then enter the answer as 0.105 instead of 10.5 or 10.5%.  Basically answer the question as the actual number instead of answering it as a percentage.

Question 3 (1 point)

 Infinity Designs, an interior design company, has experienced a drop in business due to an increase in interest rates and a corresponding slowdown in remodeling projects. To stimulate business, the company is considering exhibiting at the Home and Garden Expo. The exhibit will cost the company \$12,000 for space. At the show, Infinity Designs will present a slide show on a PC, pass out brochures that are printed previously, (the company printed more than needed), and show its portfolio of previous jobs. The company estimates that revenue will increase by \$36,000 over the next year as a result of the exhibit. For the previous year, profit was as follows:
 Revenue \$201,000 Less: Design supplies (variable cost) \$16,500 Salary of Samantha Spade (owner) 80,000 Salary of Kim Bridesdale (full time employee) 55,000 Rent 18,000 Utilities 6,000 Depreciation of office equipment 3,600 Printing of advertising materials 700 Advertising in Middleton Journal 2,500 Travel expenses other than depreciation of autos (variable cost) \$2,800 Depreciation of company cars 9,000 Required: Calculate the impact of the exhibit on company profit.

Question 4 (1 point)

Each year, Sunshine Motos surveys 7,500 former and prospective customers regarding satisfaction and brand awareness. For the current year, the company is considering outsourcing the survey to Global Associates, who have offered to conduct the survey and summarize results for \$30,000.Craig Sunshine, the president of Sunshine Motors, believes that Global will do a higher-quality job than his company has been doing, but is unwilling to spend more than \$10,000 above the current costs. The head of bookkeeping for Sunshine has prepared the following summary of costs related to the survey in the prior year.

Mailing   \$16,800

Printing (done by Lester Print Shop)   \$4,500

Salary of Pat Fisher, part-time employee who stuffed envelopes and summarized data when surveys were returned
(100 hours X \$15)  \$1,500

Share of depreciation of computer and software used to track survey responses and summarized results.   \$1,100

Share of electricity/phone/etc. based on square feet of space occupied by Pat Fisher vs. entire company.  \$500

REQUIRED: What is the incremental cost of going outside versus conducting the survey as in the past?

Howell Corporation produces an executive jet for which it currently manufactures a fuel valve; the cost of the valve is indicated below:

 Cost per Unit Variable costs Direct material \$900 Direct labor 600 Variable overhead 300 Fixed costs Depreciation of equipment 500 Depreciation of building 300 Supervisory salaries 300

The company has an offer from Duvall Valves to produce the part for \$2,000 per unit and supply 1,000 valves (the number needed in the coming year). If the company accepts this offer and shuts down production of valves, production workers and supervisors will be reassigned to other areas. The equipment cannot be used elsewhere in the company, and it has no market value. However, the space occupied by the production of the valve can be used by another production group that is currently leasing space for \$55,000 per year.

What is the incremental savings of buying the valves? (The answer should be stated in a per-unit format and is a positive number)

Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Final Presentation

Final Presentation

For your Final Presentation you will be presenting on the U.S. healthcare system. Imagine you are a community health director educating a group of new healthcare professionals on the U.S. healthcare system. You have been asked to create a PowerPoint presentation, which includes the elements listed below:

Note: You will be using Part 1 from week three for the first section of the Final Presentation. Please make sure to correct issues and address any recommendations from your instructor’s Week 3 Assignment feedback.

Introduction: Include a title slide. Next, include an introductory slide where you introduce yourself and explain what you are about to present.
Part I: The U.S. Healthcare System – Define the U.S. healthcare system by addressing the items below:

• Describe the history of the U.S. health care system.      Include at least three of the revolutionary factors (e.g., teacher’s union      in Dallas, Texas; the American Medical Association; Civil War, and the      First Marine Hospital, etc.). Chapter two in our textbook discusses the      evolution of our system and is a good resource for this part of your      presentation.
• Identify at least one major development from each of      the following: financial, legal, ethical, regulatory, and social [i.e.,      consumer demand]) that transformed the system into what it is today. You      may want to revisit the health care timelines available in your course      textbook.
• Differentiate the stakeholders and their roles (i.e.,      health care professionals, clients [patients], government, colleges, and      health care agencies.
• Include the positive and negative contributions of how       they affect our health care system.

Part II: The Cost of the U.S. Healthcare System

• Describe the costs and how they are set (i.e.,      reimbursement methods, managed care organizations, Medicare, Medicaid, and      private insurance).
• Explain how technology has affected costs (e.g., EHR,      medical research, equipment improvements like MRI, mammography, etc.) and      delivery of quality care (e.g., personalized medicine, mobile services      like ePrescribing, disease registries, etc.).

Part III: The United States Versus Other Health Care Systems—an International Perspective

• Contrast the U.S. health care system with at least one      other (e.g., Canada’s universal health care vs. U.S. healthcare or South      Africa vs. U.S. health care, etc.).
• Include at least one positive aspect from the other       country’s health care system that you would like to see added to the U.S.       healthcare system. Explain why you would like to see this in our system.

Part IV: Reforms and Improvements

• Describe any potential reforms and improvements that      are currently being discussed at either the local, state, or federal      level. Your work must be based upon scholarly research, not media      commentary.
• Examples could include the following:
• Federal modifications (i.e., Medicare reform,        repealing PPACA, universal type system, etc.)
• State modifications(i.e., Medicaid reform, income tax        credits, etc.)
• Increased consumer controls

Note: The PPACA is not an appropriate reform or improvement to be described here because it is already law and not a future improvement. However, if there is a proposal to amend or eliminate, then you can include that potential reform.

Conclusion: Future of the U.S. healthcare system

• Explain what you believe the U.S. healthcare system      will look like in the next 10 years. Give at least two recommendations for      change.
• Address access to care, quality of care, and cost of      care including an example of each in your vision of our future healthcare      system.

Creating the Final Presentation
The Final Presentation must:

• Be 15 to 20 slides, which includes Part 1, (excludes      the title slide and reference slides) and formatted according to APA style      as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
• Be presented using Microsoft PowerPoint slide      presentation.  You have a choice of one of the following options for      adding the narrative to your presentation. Option 1 is using voice or      Option 2 is adding speaker notes to each slide.
• Option 1: Recording your voice on each slide. You can       view the tutorial using this link: adding and       recording voice to each slide.You can also       click on the following links to view the Accessibility Statement and Privacy Policy. If you choose this option, you must include your APA       formatted citation in the speaker note section of the PPT as well.
• Note: if you use the voice option, make sure your        recordings are clear and concise. It is also important to know that        adding voice narrations that are too lengthy and adding graphics may        cause your PPT file to be very large (megabytes). You may have trouble        loading it to Waypoint. Revisions may be necessary if this occurs.
• Option 2: Using speaker notes for each slide in the       PPT. You can review the tutorial using this link: adding speaker notes       to your presentation. You can also click on the following links to view       the Accessibility Statement , and the Privacy Policy.
• Speaker notes are the typed notes that appear below        the slide that complement the presentation slides. Whereas the slides        will have short bulleted items, the speaker notes will be more detailed.        They are essentially what the presenter would say during the presentation        to explain each of the bulleted points on the slide. Therefore, it is        important that the speaker notes are concise and detailed when        explaining the bullet points.
• It is recommended that PowerPoint Slides contain no       more than five bullet points and should not contain more than 5 – 7 words       each. Do not type paragraphs or long sentences on the slide. The       information that explains each bullet point is conveyed via speaker notes       or by recording your voice to each slide.
• It is required that the Microsoft PowerPoint       presentation include the use of a voice or speaker notes. If you choose       to use the voice capabilities within PowerPoint, you must include your       citations in the speaker notes for each slide.
• Be visually engaging. For assistance with designing the      visuals for your presentation, view the video Don McMillan: Life after death by PowerPoint (click on the following links to view the Accessibility Statement or the Privacy Policy) or the PowerPoint Best      Practices tool.
• Include a title slide with the following:
• Title of the presentation
• Student name
• Course name and number
• Instructor name
• Date submitted
• Address the sections in the order outlined above      (Introduction, Part I, II, III, and IV).
• Present the issues with critical thought.
• Use at least two scholarly sources (none of which      should be media commentary, at least one should be from the Ashford University      Library).
• Document all sources in APA format (including graphics,      charts and pictures that may be used within the presentation). Wikimedia Commons is a recommended source for creative commons images      (to view the privacy policy, click here).
• Include a separate reference slide formatted according      to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

If you are unable to access the technology for this assignment due to a documented accommodations on file with the Office of Access and Wellness, inform your instructor as soon as possible.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

You have been asked to create a PowerPoint presentation, which includes the elements listed below:

Note: You will be using Part 1 from week three for the first section of the Final Presentation. Please make sure to correct issues and address any recommendations from your instructor’s Week 3 Assignment feedback.

Introduction: Include a title slide. Next, include an introductory slide where you introduce yourself and explain what you are about to present.
Part I: The U.S. Healthcare System – Define the U.S. healthcare system by addressing the items below:

• Describe the history of the U.S. health care system.      Include at least three of the revolutionary factors (e.g., teacher’s union      in Dallas, Texas; the American Medical Association; Civil War, and the      First Marine Hospital, etc.). Chapter two in our textbook discusses the      evolution of our system and is a good resource for this part of your      presentation.
• Identify at least one major development from each of      the following: financial, legal, ethical, regulatory, and social [i.e.,      consumer demand]) that transformed the system into what it is today. You      may want to revisit the health care timelines available in your course      textbook.
• Differentiate the stakeholders and their roles (i.e.,      health care professionals, clients [patients], government, colleges, and      health care agencies.
• Include the positive and negative contributions of how       they affect our health care system.

Part II: The Cost of the U.S. Healthcare System

• Describe the costs and how they are set (i.e.,      reimbursement methods, managed care organizations, Medicare, Medicaid, and      private insurance).
• Explain how technology has affected costs (e.g., EHR,      medical research, equipment improvements like MRI, mammography, etc.) and      delivery of quality care (e.g., personalized medicine, mobile services      like ePrescribing, disease registries, etc.).

Part III: The United States Versus Other Health Care Systems—an International Perspective

• Contrast the U.S. health care system with at least one      other (e.g., Canada’s universal health care vs. U.S. healthcare or South      Africa vs. U.S. health care, etc.).
• Include at least one positive aspect from the other       country’s health care system that you would like to see added to the U.S.       healthcare system. Explain why you would like to see this in our system.

Part IV: Reforms and Improvements

• Describe any potential reforms and improvements that      are currently being discussed at either the local, state, or federal      level. Your work must be based upon scholarly research, not media      commentary.
• Examples could include the following:
• Federal modifications (i.e., Medicare reform,        repealing PPACA, universal type system, etc.)
• State modifications(i.e., Medicaid reform, income tax        credits, etc.)
• Increased consumer controls

Note: The PPACA is not an appropriate reform or improvement to be described here because it is already law and not a future improvement. However, if there is a proposal to amend or eliminate, then you can include that potential reform.

Conclusion: Future of the U.S. healthcare system

• Explain what you believe the U.S. healthcare system      will look like in the next 10 years. Give at least two recommendations for      change.
• Address access to care, quality of care, and cost of      care including an example of each in your vision of our future healthcare      system.

Creating the Final Presentation
The Final Presentation must:

• Be 15 to 20 slides, which includes Part 1, (excludes      the title slide and reference slides) and formatted according to APA style      as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
• Be presented using Microsoft PowerPoint slide      presentation.  You have a choice of one of the following options for      adding the narrative to your presentation. Option 1 is using voice or      Option 2 is adding speaker notes to each slide.
• Option 1: Recording your voice on each slide. You can       view the tutorial using this link: adding and       recording voice to each slide.You can also       click on the following links to view the Accessibility Statement and Privacy Policy. If you choose this option, you must include your APA       formatted citation in the speaker note section of the PPT as well.
• Note: if you use the voice option, make sure your        recordings are clear and concise. It is also important to know that        adding voice narrations that are too lengthy and adding graphics may        cause your PPT file to be very large (megabytes). You may have trouble        loading it to Waypoint. Revisions may be necessary if this occurs.
• Option 2: Using speaker notes for each slide in the       PPT. You can review the tutorial using this link: adding speaker notes       to your presentation. You can also click on the following links to view       the Accessibility Statement , and the Privacy Policy.
• Speaker notes are the typed notes that appear below        the slide that complement the presentation slides. Whereas the slides        will have short bulleted items, the speaker notes will be more detailed.        They are essentially what the presenter would say during the presentation        to explain each of the bulleted points on the slide. Therefore, it is        important that the speaker notes are concise and detailed when        explaining the bullet points.
• It is recommended that PowerPoint Slides contain no       more than five bullet points and should not contain more than 5 – 7 words       each. Do not type paragraphs or long sentences on the slide. The       information that explains each bullet point is conveyed via speaker notes       or by recording your voice to each slide.
• It is required that the Microsoft PowerPoint       presentation include the use of a voice or speaker notes. If you choose       to use the voice capabilities within PowerPoint, you must include your       citations in the speaker notes for each slide.
• Be visually engaging. For assistance with designing the      visuals for your presentation, view the video Don McMillan: Life after death by PowerPoint (click on the following links to view the Accessibility Statement or the Privacy Policy) or the PowerPoint Best      Practices tool.
• Include a title slide with the following:
• Title of the presentation
• Student name
• Course name and number
• Instructor name
• Date submitted
• Address the sections in the order outlined above      (Introduction, Part I, II, III, and IV).
• Present the issues with critical thought.
• Use at least two scholarly sources (none of which      should be media commentary, at least one should be from the Ashford University      Library).
• Document all sources in APA format (including graphics,      charts and pictures that may be used within the presentation). Wikimedia Commons is a recommended source for creative commons images      (to view the privacy policy, click here).
• Include a separate reference slide formatted according      to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

If you are unable to access the technology for this assignment due to a documented accommodations on file with the Office of Access and Wellness, inform your instructor as soon as possible.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
