Cost management and healthcare in the US

Note: This is not a request to write the paper...only to give a substantive feedback based on accounting concepts relative to cost management and healthcare that I can build upon. I have included the requirements for the paper only as an FYI.

Mandatory length for the paper is 8-10 pages so I need a substantive response that I can build upon.

The paper must (a) identify the main issues in healthcare costs, (b) contain and reference accounting methods, (c) build upon class activities or incidents that facilitated learning and understanding (accounting and cost management),and (d) present specific current and/or future applications and relevance to the workplace. NOTE: The emphasis of the paper should be on application of accounting concepts.
