Answer preview

Health is one of the most prized assets that a person could have, and this explains why the healthcare system is a key concern in public discourse. A significant chunk of these conversations often revolves around the medical and technical aspects of healthcare service provision. The inclination towards these facets is reasonable because personnel and equipment are critical for providing these essential services. However, healthcare is not a standalone field, and it is often influenced by other factors that fall outside the realm of a traditional understanding of medical practice (Singer et al., 2016). This paper discusses the impact that culture has on healthcare outcomes.(1310words)
