Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are comprised of doctors, practitioners, and hospitals, to give healthcare services to patients. 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. CMS has established five domains in which to evaluate the quality of an ACO 's performance which include 1) patient/caregiver experience, 2) care coordination, 3) patient safety, 4) preventative health, and 5) at-risk population/frail elderly health.

Medicare reimbursement is partially based on a facility’s Star Rating. A critical component to this is patient surveys and HCAHPS. I have seen a push toward the customer service experience. Indeed, I feel strongly that every healthcare worker including nurses should treat each of their patients with respect, equality and do the absolute best to meet their needs.

The Joint Commission The Joint Commission has been around for many years. The Joint commission was established in 1951 as a not-for-profit organization. The Joint Commission “seeks to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value. The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 21,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including hospitals and health care organizations that provide ambulatory and office-based surgery, behavioral health, home health care, laboratory and nursing care center services (The Joint Commission, 2016).”
The Care Programme Approach (CPA) is a way that services are assessed, planned, co-ordinated and reviewed for someone with mental health problems or a range of related complex needs. People can be offered CPA support if they are diagnosed as having a severe mental disorder. The Care Programme Approach (CPA) was introduced in 1990 to provide a framework for effective mental health care for people with severe mental health illness. The CPA model was reviewed in 1999 with the publication of the Mental Health National Service Framework and to incorporate lessons learned about its use since its introduction.
Last week I found the information that I gathered from the assignment on conducting a visit to a local healthcare facility to hold the most interesting concepts from me. Having worked for different healthcare facilities, I have had my share of Joint Commission visits. It is not at all a visit that hospital employees look forward to. Learning about the details behind what the surveyors intend to achieve by examining hospital practices, questioning employees and asking patients about their stay makes more sense now.
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.
As Bernie Sanders once said, “Health care must be recognized as a right, not a privilege.” Most developed countries choose to live by this quote while the United States of America chooses to go against it. Universal health care has benefits on multiple levels, whether it’s a single individual or the people in a whole. The U.S is one of the few developed countries that doesn’t offer universal health care to their people, yet the U.S spends more than seventeen percent of their GDP on health insurance. Many people believe that universal health care is a simple one solution problem, but the truth is that there are multiple forms of universal health care that provide all citizens with the health insurance they need.
Do you feel that taking care of terminally ill or elderly patients has become a major ethical dilemma? Yes, totally it has become an ethical dilemma for both physicians and patient’s families.

It is the classic example of market failure. All in all, government intervention in healthcare is due to the government intervention itself. These interventions include the patent law which deliberated to advocate innovative activity and licensure which is intended to maintain minimal standards of quality. All these contribute to the monopoly power that dominates the whole market as well. The specific person or enterprise manages to control the whole market since they are the only supplier of a particular commodity.
