The film Escape Fire discusses the provision of care in the United States. Several concerns were raised in the film. A large cost for the health care system and families is post-acute care.  The level of demand for hospital, home care, and nursing home stay is often dependent upon source of funding and there are many regulations placed upon supplying both markets. Based on what you saw in the movie and the resources address each of following questions:

· What services are and are not covered in other nations?

· What changes could be implemented within the current system to improve efficiencies and distribution in both markets?
