Structural intervention is defined in public health as the intervention that attempts to engage the complex social, economic and political determinants of health. The evaluation of structural interventions can be a difficult task because they need to be observed, sometimes for extended periods of time. In addition, the delivery of these programs is of various levels such as communities, institutions, or certain populations. Furthermore, random assignment can also be challenging because of issues such as ethics, logistics, and /or political feasibility. However, evaluation of structural interventions is important so that there is a positive link between science, health policies and public confidence.
Change is one of the most important aspects of effective management. Managers that have honed skills in the change process are progressive employees that organizations need to stay competitive with the merging global and local markets. Change is not a single event, it is a process. The process of moving from the present state to a desired state that individuals, groups and organizations undertake in response to dynamic internal and external factors that change the current reality. The healthcare environment is currently up against many opportunities for change.
Development and implementation of new information technologies that allow global networking, give modern medicine the epithet of “informatical medicine”. Information technologies increasingly provide the help in system approach of solving medical problems . Disposition of the right information enables the preparation of accurate reports, for example, usage of hospital capacities, or number of occupied beds. At the same time it is easier to monitor treatment and to check the information exchange. Use of information technologies enables change of the healthcare system - how to improve public health, the healthcare of the system users, reduce costs, save time and
 It is not just a matter of learning a few skills, the whole society needs to be changed in order to fully support SDM in the health system.  CONCLUSION Shared decision making is a complex intervention. Nowadays, it is not yet the norm and many patients want more participation in decisions about treatment, care or support than they currently have. Now the biggest challenge is to create effective ways for supporting shared decision-making and ensuring it is widely embedded into systems, patients and clinicians ' behaviours. A number of implementation projects are under way and they will provide with valuable experience on which to base practice in the future.
Healthcare Environmental Scan Healthcare marketing and consumerism trends have become an important focus as the healthcare environment has become increasingly competitive. The drive towards consumerism has caused healthcare providers to seek insight for connecting relationally to those seeking healthcare services. Marketing methods have transitioned from print ads and radio slots to social media venues and podcasts. Environmental scans are an additional technique available to the healthcare industry as a means for discerning relevant consumer services. This paper will explore Rush University Medical Center with the use of an environmental scan to identify strategic consumerism and marketing opportunities.
With today’s fast paced environments and with current trends and advancements in technology there is a growing need to automate the world of healthcare. During the course of a person’s life, the information of his or her health is typically stored in many different places including paper charts and electronic records. Increased cost due to inefficiency, compromised care due to an incomplete picture of a person’s health history and waste of time and resources can all be a result of the lack of consistency of how and where to store health information. Not only can the management of health information and workflows through electronic systems help with efficiencies, but there is also a federal mandate requiring all healthcare providers to move
The process of ongoing learning can support health organization including AUBMC in order to promote the acquisition and implement perfect knowledge as a basic foremost strategy in order to manage the changes required for AUBMC and will support the organization in identifying major critical requirements to empower workforces to achieve and participate in continuous healthcare improvement. To implement culture of accountability, Sayegh will have to tackle knowledge and learning, this will ultimately result in development of a culture that supports continuous improvement and learning. The culture of accountability in order to work successfully will require committed leadership; the culture will result in performance feedback to motivate employees, as Sayegh faced with unmotivated staff.

I find the uptake of evidence-based practice is one of the fields that has profoundly affected the paradigm shift and is woven into each of the nursing fields, and since wide researches have been conducted so far, it imperative to note that the available material will equip and provide needed assistance. Stevens (2013) argues that the use of the knowledge which is gained from quality improvement efforts will definitely generate evidence needed to make systems improvements and transform healthcare. Therefore, utilizing the available resources in addition to conducting further researches, exploring on well-intended expert opinions and working together with the willing partners from the academy for discovering what works to improve health care guarantees growth of the profession. It is true that there a number of challenges to improving the profession, but there is no magic bullet for bringing success into the practice, several strategies are needed. Furthermore, what works in the context of care should be identified and the context variables implementation.
USEFULNESS OF THE CONCEPT TO THE CURRENT WORLD Health care policies refers to decisions, plans and action which are undertaken to achieve specific health care goals within a society (WHO 2011). Implementation of health related policies can be complex especially in developing nation which limited human material and financial resources. The process of policy making decision are made at the national level which includes the funding of the policies which affect the implementation of the policy. Attention must be paid to policies made at various levels of health care system to ensure sustainability. A favourable environment will help to facilitate the interventions of healthcare policies.
Healthcare is always developing. New ways managed care is changing within medical settings as the health care profession works to offer higher quality and cost effective care to patients is reducing the rates. Managed health care plans control costs by setting some specific criteria for selecting specific providers to patients and by establishing formal program to monitor the quality of care being given by the providers. In obvious cases, doctors must get approval before hospitalizations or expensive tests and procedures. When deciding on what we can contribute to or not it become tricky.
