Every human deserves access to health care regardless of income, and the improved health of American citizens would lead to a healthier society and economy. The cost of health care in the United States is substantially more expensive compared to other developed countries; even countries with government-funded health programs. Although this would require a large amount of effort and change, it is feasible, and countries such as Canada and France have successfully accomplished it. This matter does not fall on the shoulders of the government, rather the people of the United States, and it is up to us to make a change. People should not have to choose between debt, extreme sickness and even death for the mere fact that they cannot afford to receive
Name: Professor: Class: Date: How Value Based Healthcare Blends Strategic Planning, Healthcare Marketing and Quality and Strategy in Health Care Marketing Value Based Healthcare The concept of value-based healthcare refers to the restructuring of the various global healthcare systems with the fundamental goal of fostering increased value for the patients (Moriates, Arora, & Shah 5). Previously, majority of healthcare systems were driven by other goals such as ensuring enhanced care access, containing the costs of healthcare delivery, and promoting patient convenience/customer service in a bid to improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare. However, the financial collapse had far-reaching consequences for the healthcare systems as it
Healthcare is a critical component of human survival. To sustain a healthy lifestyle, proper healthcare services should be offered based on universality and affordability. The access to healthcare has been, however, far from universal or affordable. For institutional, political and socioeconomic reasons, access to healthcare is characterized by growing disparities between healthcare service recipients. Institutionally, disparity can be witnessed in concentration of premium services in organizations which are better funded, having most qualified care providers and, predictably, having most sophisticated equipment and facilities.
This implies that increased know-how and increased resources will not, in themselves, transform into the high quality of health care which people and entities expect. How one arranges the delivery of care has become as important. Health expenditure in technologically advanced countries has doubled in the last 30 years; however, the highest-spending countries are not always those with the best outcomes. One reason is the disintegration of their health care delivery systems. Taking a systems viewpoint, and orienting systems to the delivery and improvement of quality, are vital to progress and to meet the expectations of both populations and health-care
According to Rodrigo R. Soares (2014), preventive medical care demands time and money, but might also improve future health prospects. This was recognised early on, and a paper on health was included in the 1961 conference organised by Theodore Schultz and Gary Becker that laid much of the groundwork for developments in human capital theory (Mushkin, 1962). The early explorations of health as human capital were somewhat timid conceptually and did not give the field a push that remotely resembled that received by the economic research on education. Nowadays we recognise the importance of education for promoting physical and emotional well-being. In physiotherapy for example almost every patient is given advice and education regarding their injury or illness.
A Study of the District Health Information System in Mandera County, Kenya Study Justification Improvement in health is recognized as a central factor for development in poor countries. Public health decision making is critically dependent on accurate, timely and reliable information to improve development. To make decision-making possible, managers and policy makers need good information about the current situation of the health of the population. To acquiring good information, a well-functioning health information system (HIS) for gathering, processing, analyzing and using health information is needed (WHO, 2007). There is a widespread belief that most of the national and sub-national health information systems fail in providing much needed
Keywords: Neural Network, Supervised learning, Patient, Feed forward Abstract On the behalf of WHO records, it has been observed that a better health is playing a vital role in human happiness. Good health not only make an individual happy but also his family & friends and also make a contribution to economic growth. But lifestyle a human being is changing day by day and leads human being to an unhealthy life. Apart from exercise and healthy food, the health monitoring at a regular interval also becomes necessary to live a healthy life. Poor accessibility and absence of appropriate health monitoring system, patients need to make frequent visits to their physicians to know about their health update.
Every day people make countless unconscious and conscious decisions that either enhance or undermine their personal health. In general, becoming or staying healthy are the main objectives that drive most of these health related decisions. However, not everyone is as inclined to stick to those healthy behaviors as others are. Nowadays, people feel more personally responsible for their own health, and due to the internet this autonomy has taken a flight (Voerman, Kraemer & Nickel, 2013). Nevertheless, public health communication still plays a prominent role in the prevention of diseases.
Relieving the hospitals from pressures of demand for the treatment of preventable diseases will enable them to concentrate on the non-preventable diseases and make these services available, accessible, and affordable to the greatest number of Filipinos. In conclusion, hospitals are not only instruments that decisively affects the nature or outcome of health needs but determines the character and development of the whole health system by creating a huge amount of capacity to provide good welfare to the community. Two factors uplift the health system such as giving services that gives basic health information for better public health decision and giving opportunity to those medically skilled people located in rural settings that needs suitable job location to liberate them from being exhausted for long hours of travel and instead save energy allocated for better
Health is basic right of every individual in each country. The health of citizens affects the economic performance of a nation. The investment in the health sector may leads to prosperity. The health labour of a country will improve productivity and economic development. Inadequate health facilities, un availability of clean drinking water, insufficient resources for better medical treatment adversely affected the health of people and economic growth ultimately.
