As a nation, America spends the most amount of money than any nation throughout the world. Healthcare spending has increased 4.2 percent since 2016. Accounting for one-third of all of all healthcare expenditures are inpatient hospital stays. In 2016, there were over 35 million hospital stays. In 2017, hospital cost admission totaled 434.2 billion. The five most expensive inpatient stays where related to septicemia, osteoarthritis, newborn infants, acute myocardial infarction, and heart failure (Liang, Moore, Soni, 2020). In 2017, studies indicate 3.5 million hospitalization were preventable and accounted for 33.7 billion in aggregate hospital costs. The most common and expensive reason for preventable stays were heart failure and asthma in children (McDermott & Jiang, 2020). So, in conclusion, the most expensive user of medical cost needs policy changes.

               The U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality estimates that chronic conditions account for 66 percent of total healthcare spending. Currently, our healthcare system caters to chronic diseases with ineffective, inefficient, and uncoordinated care. Current evidence concludes, area with a strong primary care sector result in decrease healthcare spending (Rother, 2016). Interesting, two of the greatest cost of healthcare spending are based on poor chronic disease management.

               Chronic care is a problem in the United States (US). The US health systems is among the best in the developed world. However, it is not designed to treat long-term. As a result, economic and societal cost in treating and managing is rising rapidly. Thus, there is a need to change the way our health system is run. Education specialists need to incorporate salutogenic methods to promote chronic disease management. There needs to be a shift in health policies that nurture health-promoting ecosystems that foster chronic wellness. This includes the implementation of evidence-based public health policies that apply scientific methods will assistance individuals in disease prevention and aid in living with chronic disease (Stellefson, Becker, Paige, & Spratt, 2019).

               The Global Burden of Disease has highlighted the major problem of mental health globally. Mental and substance use disorders are the leading cause of disability Studies indicate this number is the highest in younger individuals. The most prevalent disorder reported globally are anxiety and major depressive disorders. Unfortunately, many countries do not have mental health policy to reduce the burden of these issues. Experts state that even in high income counties, mental illness is still viewed as a family or individual problem. Expert also state that mental health advocates need to do a better job of educating the public and policies makers on the true cost of mental illness (Whiteford, Ferrari, & Degenhardt, 2016). It is shocking there is still such a stigma associated with mental health.
