Abstract:

Abstract: Delay of health care negatively impacts patient satisfaction and contributes to an inefficient healthcare system by increasing the use of the emergency room for non-urgent conditions. Policymakers argue that long waits will result in delays in diagnosis and treatment, and these delays negatively affect individual health. California is a diverse state and comprises of people from various ethnic backgrounds. Consequently, there are cultural, linguistic and various other underlying reasons which contribute towards the delay in health care. Apart from this, California has a wide range of people, which varies in socioeconomic status and there is a large segment which delays health care due to lack of health insurance. This study focuses on analyzing the reasons behind the delay in health care among California residents and proposes remedies which can help mitigate the problem.
