A healthcare delivery process gap

After reviewing the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric document, select a healthcare delivery process gap and population affected from the list below.
This will be the base of your final project, the healthcare delivery systems research paper.
• Option One: A gap in quality related to care coordination for individuals with chronic illnesses
• Option Two: A gap in equity related to mental health access for veterans
• Option Three: A gap in efficiency related to rising cost of pharmaceuticals for the aging population
In your paper, you will explain why the chosen topic is a gap in healthcare and analyze the specific population impacted by the issue. Specifically, you should
address the following:
• Describe a specific gap in the delivery of healthcare. Include the specific population affected by the gap.
• Briefly describe the history of this gap in access to healthcare. Has this been an issue historically, or is it a modern issue?
• Explain the impact that the socioeconomic background of the population has on their access to healthcare.
• Describe how the healthcare delivered to the population is affected by the gap in access.
• Predict any potential implications if this gap in access is not addressed.
