What are causes of health disparities? The causes of health disparities come from lack of access to health services, behaviors, and education. A person with a high education, gets a high paying job, would have access to a great health plan that he or she can afford. The behaviors people have when it comes to health might frighten a person to see a doctor. The lack of physical activity, and poor diet habits can lead to more problems and money that they do not have to fix the problem.
Today many Americans are concern about health care. This includes individuals that have health care coverage and those who cannot afford health insurance. Unfortunately, health care premiums are rising, and coverage is limited. The care and coverage we are receiving as individuals is poor and it has become a sensitive topic in our country today. While the Affordable Act was meant to increase the quality of care individuals receive and to increase the number of individuals insured, today healthcare is not what it was meant to accomplish.
Healthcare is an important access we hold, but an issue is that not everyone can have that access to the healthcare they need. There are many arguments regarding the United States adopting a universal healthcare system. Although the universal system may reduce the quality of care the people receive, there are too many people not able to get any kind of care. Therefore a universal healthcare system would be more beneficial to the citizens of the United States than the limited access of care we have today. The first editorial is in favor of the universal healthcare system.
Florida and Alabama have proposed that the recipient should have to pay for the test instead (US Health and Human Services). But how is it fair that they should have to pay for the test if there is no reason for them to be tested. In the end the cost of drug testing and testing all approved applicants was between 1.2 and 1.3 million dollars (US Health and Human Services). Drug testing individuals is not worth the money in the end because most people will not test positive. Most people tend to forget that most people receiving aid also are taxpayers.
Name: Professor: Class: Date: How Value Based Healthcare Blends Strategic Planning, Healthcare Marketing and Quality and Strategy in Health Care Marketing Value Based Healthcare The concept of value-based healthcare refers to the restructuring of the various global healthcare systems with the fundamental goal of fostering increased value for the patients (Moriates, Arora, & Shah 5). Previously, majority of healthcare systems were driven by other goals such as ensuring enhanced care access, containing the costs of healthcare delivery, and promoting patient convenience/customer service in a bid to improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare. However, the financial collapse had far-reaching consequences for the healthcare systems as it
Some of the disadvantages with the old classification system included such issues as; the system was running out of numbers to assign for codes, the diagnosis codes did not provide sufficient clinical specificity to describe the severity or complexity of the numerous disease conditions, the exchange of important healthcare data with healthcare organizations and professionals around the world was hindered by the fact that many countries are presently using ICD-10, and lastly the system was ineffective when it came to monitoring the utilization of resources, measuring performance, or analyzing healthcare costs and outcomes. All these issues were addressed when the system upgrade was designed. An over whelming disadvantage across the board for all effected entities was time and money spent to upgrade this system. Another impact that was accounted for was the delay in claim reimbursements. The new system will be able to measure the quality, safety and efficacy of care as well as improvement of clinical, financial, and administrative performances.
Without Managed Care, we would not have organized a proper community of health care providers available for those eligible. And I mean "proper" as in these health providers and their facilities have all been accredited. The quality care is raised because providers have legitimate credentials and education. Medications can also be partially covered under managed care plans, making them more affordable. The overall lower costs that is usually associated with Managed Care is very appealing.
Often times, the bureaucracy involved in implementing a change within the hospital slows the process, increases workload of the change agent which ultimately loses council member buy-in. Thus, disallowing a project to become implemented which is one of the many challenges to maintaining a Shared Governance Council (Moore, Strachan, O'Shea, & Leitch, 2012).
The number of Certified Nursing Assistance (CNA) to patients or residents is becoming a horrible problem. Patients do not get all the care they need or deserve because the certified nursing assistant ratio to patient is not what it should be. Certified nursing assistant jobs are not an exciting or even a job you would think about perusing, but it is an important job for people that can not take care of themselves like they should. Especially for people with dementia, ole timers, or any other illness. Only California, Nevada, Texas, Ohio, Connecticut, Illinois, Washington, and Oregon have a law where you have only a certain number of patients to CNA’s for each shift.
al, 1999; Gibbs, 1995). Because of this, their failed to assess the pain during patient self-report and give an appropriate treatment. Thus, inadequate pain management will affect the quality of life and also creates a financial burden on health care system such as longer hospitalization and readmission (Grant et. al, 1995; Sheehan et. al, 1996).
