HCS 455 Week 3 The Policy Process
The policy cycle approach provides lawmakers with a pathway for developing a policy and guiding it through the institutions of the U.S. government. The cycle starts with identification of a targeted problem and ultimately ends with a specific course of action. Along the way, the outcomes of a policy are subjected to various levels of review, evaluation, and revisions that result in a continual loop. In essence, the policy cycle is a series of interlocking steps that facilitates a dialogue between the main stakeholders. As a health care administrator, it’s important to have a working knowledge of the process and how the process ultimately leads to implementation of health care laws that eventually will impact what you do.

Explain the various stages and the key components associated with each stage in the policy process.
