This includes individuals, organizations and interest groups. These types of groups consider policies as an economic benefit where policies help to expand the growth of profit and resources in healthcare (Longest, 2015). These groups also strive towards the same common goal or set of objectives. Interest groups are also essential to policy making because they serve as a tool for individual members to find a way voice out their policy demands into one unified voice that in turn influences the making of health policies (policyri, 2012). The supplies of health policies are elected officials, legislator, executive and bureaucrat and judiciary officials (policyri, 2012). Judges and juries are tasked with interpreting the laws, creating procedures and determine constitutionality of laws. Other executive officials share a fundamental commitment in enhancing the quality of care and well-being of those needing healthcare services and creating an equitable, effective and efficient healthcare delivery system (ACHE, 2012). Legislatures are also essential policymakers because they draw on the experience of a diverse membership and staff. They also collect information from a wide variety of sources such as legislative committees. These committees receive written and verbal suggestions from interested groups, and often request information from more objective sources to help make better policies.
