Philosophy Paper I believe in the philosophy of trying to live leaving the world in a better place and looking for daily opportunities to do so.

There are various methods to adjust health care services into becoming more approachable for low literacy patients. We shall let our society be aware of the problem and accommodate to the needs of low literacy people in our health care facilities.

I came into this program knowing that I can create and maintain positive interpersonal relationships, but what I need to improve was learning to make wise career choices, minimize those bad experiences, and grow from the challenging ones (Buchbinder & Thompson, 2010). Specially, I become emotionally attached to people and situations, which doesn’t allow for me to make the best decision for the bigger picture. As healthcare managers, we can help people one at a time, or thousands at a time, because we work through something that is larger than us (Buchbinder & Thompson, 2010). I focus on how I can make the situation better for one person instead of making sure that the solution would assist a person and many more. One of the tools that will assist with improving my business skills would be requesting a mentor in a health care manager’s position or like business.

Empathy is a significant and influential part of the healthcare system. It is important for health professionals to include a true understanding and compassion to their patients; moreover, psychologically a person is more capable of getting through a health problem when they are approaching their issue in a more assured approach. This encourages more effective communication between the patient and the healthcare provider.

Finally, tying quality outcomes to reimbursements is an effective way to ensure that healthcare providers stay on the path of continuous quality improvement. Altogether, report cards are a great way to educate healthcare consumers and generate better accountability among providers leading to higher quality of care, but we all, as consumers or providers need to perform our roles in order to make this a successful
