Review Chapter 4 of your course text. Prepare a four to five page double-spaced paper (excluding title and reference pages), on the following topic:
You are a manager with five years of experience and need to write a report for senior management on how your firm can avoid the threat of a Federal Trade Commission (F.T.C.) investigation if you were to merge with other Health Care Organizations (H.C.O.s). Research on your own to select a health care organization in the United States that has been charged with an antitrust action within the last five years and use this information as the basis for your paper. In your report:
a. Summarize the charges and rebuttal or mitigation of charges used by the health care organization you researched
b. Discuss lessons learned and propose actions that can be taken by your management to avoid similar anti-trust actions in your proposed merger.
Your paper must include an introduction, thesis, and conclusion and be four to five page double-spaced (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Utilize a minimum of three- to- five scholarly and/or peer-reviewed sources (excluding the course text) that were published within the last five years, in APA format.
