The biggest problem I see in healthcare is the cost. The rising cost of medical care and health insurance is impacting the livelihood of many Americans in one way or another. The cost of health care is not only affecting the uninsured but also becoming a problem for those with health insurance as well. The healthcare costs in the United States exceed $2 trillion a year.(www.healthcareproblem.org, 2015). As a healthcare leader in the hospital it is important is to decrease the length-of-stay.
In this class we are expecting to run a business with competitors within the Footwear industry. With any industry there are many challenges within a company.

Risk management for healthcare clinics includes any activity, or policy designed to reduce liability exposure within the healthcare clinic. This involves all aspects of healthcare clinics including clinical care, financial matters, facility maintenance, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
Every day, more than thousands of people are treated successfully and safely in the health system of the United States. But advances in technology, knowledge and little staff available, the recent years have created a health system of enormous complexity. This complexity takes risks, and experience shows that things can go wrong and that adverse events will be given, and will affect the future of our health system. Patients may be affected despite the dedication and professionalism of our staff and that will be affected families. So conflicts also appear.
