Another typical issue with direct contracting is getting the employees to actually participate. Direct contracting can be unsuccessful without employee participation and enrollment.

Physical resources may include equipment and plant, and medical supplies.
Rapid and Dramatic developments in medical technology has given us the power to save more lives than we ever have before.

Moreover, patent expiry is one of the reasons which is offering opportunities for lower cost generic manufacturer in terms of greater market access. Additionally, the government has increased their focus on healthcare cost cutting. It is creating pressure on the authority to allow early introduction of low-cost drugs in the
Technology is necessary in medicine. The legacy of technology in the medical field is simple: more lives are saved with better methods. As professor Ralph Merle of Communications college of arts and sciences says “ If we can reduce the cost and improve the quality of medical technology through advances in nanotechnology, we can more widely address the medical conditions that are prevalent and reduce the level of human suffering.” However, many people believe that technology is bad for our health including the eyes. The problem with this belief is that it has caused a misunderstanding in the benefits of technology as there is a potential to improve eyesight using them. On the article “UR Technology to Enhance Eyesight Approved by FDA” by the

The legal system is in place not only to protect our rights and administer justice, but to increase the quality of life in a society. By legalizing doctor-assisted suicide, the quality of life increases. First, more lives can be saved with the legalization of doctor-assisted suicide. Many diseases such as cancers can take away use of certain organs. By detecting incurable cancers earlier, it is possible to harvest organs such as kidneys (cancer.org, 2014).

Intermountain’s approach towards the patient and also their concern towards the employees like organizational behaviour alignment to individual alignment on decison
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.
One of the well-known federal fraud and abuse statutes in the United States is the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, which greatly influences business relationships in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and medical device sectors. This statute is an Anti-Corruption law, which is designed to protect beneficiaries of the federal health care program from money influence on various referral decisions. Thus, this law helps in guarding against an increase in costs, overutilization and poor quality services. However, this law needs some modifications to become more efficient to all the U.S citizens. The lawmakers in the country should take the initiative of amending this bill so as to ensure that they adequately represent the interests of those people who
