But this work on ideas and policy leaves two questions unanswered. First, why does failure sometimes not cause changes in policy? In some cases, policy after failure drifts in the sense that it lacks coherent intellectual links between policy tools and desired outcomes. This drift can take the form of continuing to implement failed policies or altering the selection and settings of policy tools in cosmetic or contradictory ways that do not address the sources of failure. For example, every informed observer has concluded that the U.S. health care system fails to achieve important objectives, but significant policy change in this area has proven impossible to achieve despite the fact that countless serious reform proposals have circulated for years.
Sami Mesgun RH Critical Analysis Study The right to health as a human right asserts the right to health is a “fundamental part of our human rights and of our understanding of a life in dignity” (The Right to Health, 2008, p. 1). On one hand, the right to health is closely related to and dependent upon the realization of other human rights (Health & Human Rights, 2002). On the other hand, the enjoyment of other human rights such as the right to education and the right to active, free, and meaningful participation is closely related to the right to health, or—as articulated in international law—“the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health” (The Right to Health, 2008, p. 1). This paper aims to critically discuss the right to health as a human right using the available literature for comparative analysis.

Thus accurate, relevant and up-to-date information is essential for the health service providers /manager at all levels so that they can initiate action on the gaps in the system based on evidence and information.
The Health Promotion Model is the middle range theory utilized in the paper. It describes the multidimensional nature of persons as they interact within their environment to pursue health (Petiprin, 2016). It is also directed at increasing a patient's level of well-being. According to McEwen and Wills (2011), health promotion interventions are necessary for improving the health populations everywhere and on all ages. The Health Promotion Model makes four assumptions (Petiprin, 2016): 1 Individuals seek to actively regulate their own
Accreditation is a process of review that healthcare organizations voluntarily participate in to demonstrate the ability to meet predetermined criteria, and standards established by a nationally recognized professional accrediting agency. The purpose of accreditation is to validate the fact that a health care organization provides the highest quality of care to patients and, is in continuous compliance with nationally established standards of quality (Carman & Timsina, 2015).

Licensure is the time-limited permission that a government organization grants for an individual to engage in the occupation after meeting the standardized criteria required by the agency.

Data use agreements and connections between HIE organizations are also a concern with health information exchange. “The types of healthcare partners that are needed is a challenge when determining the trading area needed for a viable HIE” (PHII, 2005). Although there are challenges, there are opportunities with implementing a health information exchange system. One opportunity is HIE can improve reporting to public health and in return improve the health of the community.
Societal health and health problems are the resultants of the interplay of various complex factors, each of which has enormous influence on the creation of a healthy society. However, if I had to choose one of Healthy People’s overarching goals, it would be the need for the society to focus on health equity and the elimination of health disparities. Undoubtedly, the analysis of the disparities in various societies usually translates into the analysis of the social, economic and physical aspects of these communities.
The United States culture is a completely different experience for the Hmong people, something that is very foreign and unusual for them. The Hmong people and Lia’s family especially are faced with huge culture shock when it comes to the United States heath care system. They are use to more spiritual practices, while the doctors are focused on using strictly medication in order to heal patients. These completely different methods make it difficult to finding a common ground when trying to heal Lia. Many things that the Hmong culture is accustom to are not very well excepted in the US culture.
