Finding of an ambulatory capacity assessment show tightening in all regions by 2019, and some shortfalls if exam rooms, physician offices, and other care sites are not added. Kaiser Permanente continues to explore innovative facility designs to address capacity and consumer preferences. Kaiser Permanente is also accelerating the next phase of seismic hospital replacements and increasing their hospital capacity in selected markets. As this is done, Kaiser Permanente’s new service delivery plans will describe how and where care will be delivered in the future. These plans include how members can experience, accommodate and foster membership growth and improve the organization’s
A. Hudspeth Regional Center opened in 1963 as an annex to Mississippi State Hospital designed originally as a segregation part of the institution to serve black individuals with mental retardation and or development disabilities. In 1968 under a federal order, the state was forced to integrate the population by transferring individuals between Ellisville State School and Hudspeth Regional Center for a racial balance, based upon the family residence in each area of service. In 1974 Hudspeth became independent facility which operated separately from Mississippi State Hospital. Throughout the 70s population grew to approximately 1000 individual with around 275 staff members. Individuals were transferred to newly opened facilities like Boswell, apartment, or nursing homes.
Hsm 541 (Week 6) You Decide Middlefield hospital served a variety of patients with the best care. However from the past couple years it has been having some problem due to the new big hospital in the city. Since the arrival of the new hospital in the area our hospital has been losing its patients and we are getting more of uninsured/underinsured patients. In order for me to improve our financial situation of the hospital, we need to work as a team and be competitive against the new hospital in town.
Half of the properties listed above were acquired in the past five years, which demonstrates a concerted effort on behalf of PHS to increase its influence in the area. Some locations of the locations, like the Phoenix, Pathway, and Victory Houses, have only minimal staff because they serve as residential only facilities, with no need for clinical or extensive administrative staff, but the others are more intensive. For this reason, it is essential that PHS continue to hire and train quality employees, in order to best serve a community, in which, it is attempting to gain

Much effort was put into generating a community health assessment and improvement plan that wholly applied to the county. The work to create the community health assessment and community health improvement plan is already being implemented throughout the county. With a heavy emphasis on quality, affordable healthcare, Kittitas County has laid the groundwork for a promising future with regard to the health of its people. What is more, should these attempts prove successful in Kittitas County, this can provide a possible framework for health improvements in other counties around the country, especially the rural counties that show great parallels to that of Kittitas. With that said, there are still many issues the county must deal with in the future.
Introduction Capstone Consulting Group has been approached by the Medical Associates to perform an executive summary regarding a land option and the changes in the Swift Health Plan. Medical Associates needs a recommendation concerning a 225-acre land on whether to sell only 25 acres closest to an anticipated highway or if they should sell all 225-acres. Swift Health Plan is announcing changes and Medical Associates need a recommendation on how to get in the best position for their developing managed care markets. Land Option In 1980, Medical Associates acquired a 30- year option for the 225-acre of land by the facility that established a purchase price not to exceed ‘the average prevailing rate plus 10 percent for undeveloped farm land in Hillsboro County’ (Seidel and Lewis 2014).
One paramount difference right now is that healthcare organizations are essentially hiring in lieu of firing; hence, recruitment and retention are one of the most paramount issues. This is not obligatorily the case in other industries. The Cumulated States health care system faces many challenges in endeavoring to find a viable future. According to Dombovy (2002) among the critical issues are: • Achieving consensus on the constructs of health care • Reducing clinical variation/ enhancing quality • Financing incipient technology and drugs while circumscribing the rate of incrimination in health care costs.

These issues are longstanding and were detailed in another report in 2001 by the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Mental Health. Furthermore, the problems of the mental health and substance use delivery system that existed in 2000 are identical to those facing us today(OHA, 2013). Problems like gridlock in state hospitals and in the emergency rooms and inpatient units of our general hospitals and the need for more community options in order that children and adults may receive appropriate services in the least restrictive environment, needs immediate
My husband is a healthcare professional and I have participated and witnessed those changes first hand. Our business model has evolved and changed greatly over the past 15 years. It takes a great deal of foresight and planning to keep a business profitable through the turbulent cycles. Decreased reimbursement rates by insurance companies and improving technology have been chief issues for our office. As this major source of revenue decreases, it is necessary to be proactive in seeking new revenue streams or decreasing overhead to remain profitable.
Case study: St. Rita 's Healthcare System Enterprise Instance Messaging (EIM) is a factor of Real-Time Communications that augments business competence by getting rid of delays in communications. These delays are more witnessed in the healthcare environment. Recently many healthcare organizations have realized that EIM can be of great benefit in the rate at which they grow and in that case increase the quality of patient care. In the case study, St. Rita’s Medical Center team made a recommendation to move to a secure instant messaging that will be used in the IT department. The move proved to be a success and in my opinion, the move was worth the risk.

Healthcare disparities come in many different shapes, sizes, and forms. One health care disparity is the geography of where care is provided. Many seem to miss this aspect and it should be taken seriously on the account of where healthcare can be delivered to. I currently go serve in the Navajo Nation tribe in Arizona, Pine Springs for a church missionary to evangelize the gospel for the past two years. Within every visit, I witness the circumstances the Native American people live in, where poverty-smitten the communities.
To suggest that RMT take away from existing health care funding would be a difficult road to implement, given the rising cost of health care and the reality that a greater amount of both provincial and federal budgets will be allocated to our aging population. Politically, most health care professionals would prefer to see a larger tax base that provides for top of the line care and services, but our model cannot be based upon the politics of the day. Rather, RMT must find a way to ensure their services are cost-effective and provide feedback that gives solid evidence to its fiscal responsibility. As mentioned in the Brief, many public service sector employees enjoy the benefit of RMT through their own additional insurance, such as Pacific Blue Cross and Extended Health.
