There are many stakeholders in healthcare, including patients, physicians, providers, administration, employees, communities, and various government agencies and entities, in addition to payers, insurance companies and claims administrators. Stakeholders may vary, depending on the type of healthcare organization or the state(s) in which it operates.
Discuss the types of healthcare organizations in your area:
Describe how each of these types of organizations are structured,
Explain the role these organizations play in the local community, and
Give examples of state or local political or economic factors that affect these organizations.
