Construct a concept map using the CMAP tool to illustrate the important concepts and the relationships among the concepts for the problem of high costs and waste in the healthcare system.
- the concept map includes at least 15 -20 concepts and shows some of the relationships between the causes of the problem.
For example, for high costs, make a map that illustrates various aspects of the healthcare system that leads to high costs.
I plan to link the following concepts to high cost:

Wastes are associated with – clinical inefficiencies, overuse of tests, missed prevention opportunities, duplication of tests, administrative waste, excessive prices, fraud, and abuse. These are some of the concepts to be used in the concept map
2. using the CMAP tool to map the above concepts in a logical and presentable way.
3 produce a .jpeg or .png image that illustrates the important concepts and the relationships among the concepts for the problem of high cost and waste in a PDFfile.
