“The Immortal life of Henrietta Lacks,” is a realistic account of an African American woman in the 1950’s who is now known to have immortal cells in the scientific community. Henrietta Lacks had her cells stolen from her in 1951 at Hopkins hospital after being diagnosed with cervical cancer. The term stolen is used to describe taking something considered valuable to another without permission. Surprisingly, even after her death, Ms. Lacks’ cells continued to grow at a rapid growth and have been involved in the advances of the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, invitro-fertilization, and a tool for curing cancer. Throughout the years her cells have produced a multi billionaire company, while her name was never mentioned. Her cells are

The Accountable Care Organizations are a coordinated effort between healthcare providers to ensure the best quality of care delivered to the patients and at the same time at a reduced cost. This means that health care providers will voluntarily come together to form the ACO and patients will be able to get treated by any provider in the organization. Apart from that, it will reward the providers for delivering quality care. Even though the ACOs is comparatively a new concept, but its certain concepts and features are closely related to early managed care organizations (Barnes et al.,2014). Both MCOs and ACOs rely on the creation of physician network, promotion of member health and resource management to control costs. Furthermore, focusing

The goal of coordinated care is provide high quality of care through an integrated service model while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors. The ACO is evaluated through a quality metrics to assess care provided to patients in a cost efficient manner.
In the film Escape Fire the Fight to Rescue American Healthcare, there were many insightful examples of why our Unites States healthcare revolves around paying more and getting less. The system is designed to treat diseases rather than preventing them and promoting wellness. In our healthcare industry, there are many different contributors that provide and make up our system. These intermediaries include suppliers, manufacturers, consumers, patients, providers, policy and regulations. All these members have a key role in the functionality of the health care industry; however, each role has its positives and negatives. Each person with an occupation in the healthcare industry is doing their designated job as assigned, but it’s evident that the system’s design is flawed to its core.

An employee accountability is measured by customer satisfaction, results of performance, and the cost and impacts of the employee over time, and affects an organization’s working culture by their values, integrity and work ethics. A successful organization follows the checks and balance process, maintains a positive working culture, and stays clear from blame.
There are many stakeholders involved with health care administrations. Those stakeholders can be patients, health care physician, insurance providers, pharmaceutical manufactures, hospital organizations, community clinics and government. Each different stakeholder has their own individual vision of health care administration. This causes conflict due to the nature and differences in vision. which then can cause conflicts among each stakeholder involved. A patient is going to have a different idea of how a health care should be managed. This in contrast to the way a physician may think the administration should be managed. Furthermore, each different stakeholder involved would have their own ideal reasons to why the health care administration
There is a battle to balance cost, access, and quality. Guaranteeing access to care and controlling the costs of health care is an extremely difficult and a complex undertaking that is risky and uncertain.
Mednax is an independent group practice in the United States specializing in the delivery of neonatal, pediatric subspecialty, and anesthesia services across the country. As one of the largest accountable care organizations of its kind, the company benefits from geographic and economic scale, enabling it to spread out administrative costs across a wide network of practice locations. Its increasing scale gives it strong negotiating leverage with hospitals, especially as the company 's intangible assets the high degree of specialization of its physician workforce are in high demand and difficult to replicate (Wisner, 2016). A network effect appears to be at play, both in the company 's widening practice base and through its own proprietary

Under direct contracting, providers must go beyond their traditional roles as suppliers of care to owners of integrated financing and delivery systems. This transition can be difficult for employers to compile and manage actuarial and legal mandates. A physician group can be presented as a threat to health plans, as it does business by obtaining an insurance license. This is because the subcontractor is a competitor. Providers must become active managed care partners with employers, instead of being reactive adversaries of managed care organizations on a contractual basis.
