The external environment is embodied with elements that happen outside of a health care association that have a prominent impact on the development of the association.

Due to hospital care reaching an all-time high in America, we need nurses now more than ever before. Currently in America, we have an issue with nurses having too many paperwork to fill out. In the article “We Need More Nurses” by Alexandra Robbins argues we need more nurses in the hospital. Nursing shortage has been a common issue throughout the world. Because of this issue others are being affected in many different ways. This issue is not only affecting the hospital, but also the patients. In the article “When Hospital Paperwork Crowds Out Hospital Care” by Theresa Brown argues that nurses have too much paperwork to fill out about their patients. Having too many paperwork takes away from the nurses getting involved with their patients. In my opinion, neither of the arguments are valid because they lacks supporting details .Even though Robbins and Brown are passion about their topic, they both did a great job using pathos
Having accessibility to any form of healthcare is important to everyone in the world. Despite the fact that it is available to most countries, it does not mean that it is available to everyone. Being able to possess healthcare is seen as a gift in some parts of the world. In some countries, healthcare is free and accessible for all inhabitants, while in other countries one would have to pay for their own health insurance. Specifically, when focusing on Italy and America, there are major differences regarding their healthcare systems. Some of the differences between Italy and America’s healthcare systems includes the cost, the quality of care given, and the problems each system faces.
The federal government plays several different roles in the American health care arena, including the provider of health care services, the purchaser of care, Quality regulator and sponsor of research, education and training programs for professionals. Each of these roles has both positive and negative effects on the system. This paper elaborates the role of government in growth as well as the decline of one of these arenas, Hospitals. Hospitals have transformed from primitive institutions of social welfare to consolidated systems of health services delivery.
Urgent care centers bridge the gap between emergency rooms and primary care physicians. By doing so such facilities are able to fill a niche in the market. However, one of the main drawbacks of urgent care centers is that continuity of care is low. Many patients, particularly the elderly, place a high importance on building relationships with their providers. Convenient care, with its episodic nature, poses the risk of fragmenting and disrupting such relationships. Once the ailment is treated, patients are referred back to their primary care physician or a specialist for ongoing care. Therefore, I propose that the Northwell Health GoHealth Urgent Care Centers incorporate a multitude of specialties and expand their services outside of the urgent
The government has strived to achieve equity in access and provided a comprehensive range of affordable and quality care. At the same time, it has not neglected services that are in the realm of public goods. The importance of quality and standards of care is without question. Important quality and innovation will attract inward investment and generate income to the nation through many opportunities in the health sector and industry e.g. health tourism, but pose challenges in marketing and branding. The MOH has an established and transparent quality assurance programme but this is not the case in the private sector. Consumer bodies has frequently lamented on the high drug prices and alluded to expensive private hospital care making it unaffordable to the majority of the population. Professional bodies have alerted the authorities regarding bogus and unqualified personnel in private clinics and have maintained that the standards in the Private Health Facility and Services Act 1998 (PHFSA 1998) should apply through the board, private as well as public. There is an urgent need to ensure clinical governance in the private

The Affordable Healthcare Act promotes preventative health care for Americans and in return increases the number of individuals taking improved measures of precaution when it comes to their health. The utilization of mid-level practitioners, such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants would progressively benefit the delivery of primary care. NPs and PAs are more cost effective, provide coverage for the increasing amount of new people requiring health coverage, and require less liability risk cost when compared to a physician’s rate. According to Shell (2013), “Partly driving this change is the Affordable Care Act (ACA) which will extend health care coverage to approximately 30 million more individuals, most of whom have not been
