Albert Johnson, Director of Compensation at Elite Financial Services, has some strategic decisions to make in an effort to decrease the costs of their current employer-sponsored health insurance plan. The company has not done much in the past to control the costs of healthcare, so employees are used to certain perks such as only paying 10% of the total costs of the health insurance premium, and low deductible and co-insurance expenses. Making changes to current benefits may be somewhat unsettling to employees, but there are times when it is necessary in order to drive costs down. Albert Johnson must find the proper balance between transferring some of the premium costs to the employees, and setting up wellness incentives to drive claim experience
Practice fusion could be good for the medical offices and hospitals. Practice fusion allows the medical practice to do so much with patient care. One item I find good is to input patient photo with the name. This would decrease patient error but the downfall would be if patients are willing to have their photo attached to the medical record.

The customers of cancer research will be the people who have cancer and who are receiving the treatment. As a customer they will want the researchers to be finding the best research possible to help them find a cure as quickly as possible.

My grandfather is socially active and if ever he becomes socially disengaged the health care sector will try and help him find a solution where he could prevent becoming more disengaged to the public. Also, the health and social care sector still encourages elderly who are active to stay active in order to prevent social disengagement.

Hospitals cannot afford to lose money for treating Medicare and Medicaid patients with the hospitals already taking a loss for treating non-insured patients.

One thing is for certain and that is hospitals play a huge role in the care of all patients and hospitals

The health care universal system would raise the cost because free health care isn 't really free because it comes out of every body 's taxes that pay taxes. Doctor’s flexibility decrease because of how many patients they have to see a day they do not have enough time and seeing one hundred parents a day is above their pay grade.

People who have business are becoming unfavorable. Health care is expensive currently and the quality that doctors give you is not to their full potential.
Additionally, when dealing with a staffing shortage, delegation is an essential strategy. Furthermore, as the stress levels may increase for a healthcare manager given with these circumstances, delegating tasks does not need to be done in a demeaning or impertinent way. Skilled delegation is a kind of time management skill that is fundamental to coping with a short staffed shift. Things can easily lead to further stress and workplace aggravation when short staffed. For healthcare administrators, managing skills and strategies for these types of situations, are not only essential for healthcare professionals, but will help ensure patients will receive the care and attention they need and deserve.
