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

The households involved added up to an estimate of 22.9 million households (Hughes, 2008). Additionally, the healthcare delivery model highlights that it is important for the nurses or doctors involved to address what should be done by both the patient and the caregiver for the improvement of skills and knowledge in regard to providing healthcare (Hughes, 2008). Details of the instructions provided by the nurse or the doctor should be taken into account to avoid activities contributing to low qualities of health care. In conclusion, care giving is a universal obligation associated with the acts of love and third party responsibility. One of the basic provisions of the healthcare delivery model is to address the quality of health and care services provided and the affected parties are the caregiver and the patient which makes the model a patient and caregiver centered.
Great patient outcomes should be the main focus throughout the healthcare system. Nowhere are the stakes higher than in health care, where good patient outcomes hinge on team synergy and interdependence (Eggenberger et al., 2014, para. 3). When working as a team each person involved in the patients care provides their expertise. By coming together each and every aspect of the patient care is reviewed and the appropriate care plan is implemented.
It is defined as the integrated care, team approach, and communication between health care members in the effort to provide a functional work environment (Clarke, & Hassmiller, 2013). To summarize, professions across a health care organization should come together to improve the work environment to achieve the same goals to ensure that as a team, outcomes are being met. The Institute of Medicine (2010) believes this is an area that needs vast improvement, and due to fact that interprofessional leadership is not implemented as the standard throughout the hospitals nationwide. The Institute also believes that collaboration is a key strategy for improving problem solving (2010). “Quality care is best provided in a healthy, functional work environment” (Finkelman, et al, p477, 2013).
In an effort to create more efficient and effective health care services, decision makers and organizational leaders have looked to the implementation of interprofessional healthcare teams to deliver care together as opposed to the traditional model of healthcare delivery one that sees practitioners working alone in silos (Tomblin Murphy, Alder, MacKenzie & Rigby, 2010; Weinberg, Cooney-Miner, Perloff, Babington, & Avgar, 2011). In 2008, the World Health Organization (WHO) Study Group on Interprofessional Education (IPE) and Collaborative Practice (IPC) created a set of definitions to assist the health researchers, educators, policy developers, decision makers and others in developing IPE and IPC in their jurisdictions to both build capacity
There are three important requirements common to healthcare establishments that develop process improvement initiatives that successfully sustain improvements according to Studer (2014). To sustain improvements from a process initiative, healthcare establishments should explain to staff why a process improvement initiative is needed, encourage leaders within the organization to champion the process improvement, and ensure that both leaders and employees have the skills to help sustain the sought-after process improvements. Explaining to staff why a process improvement initiative is needed is Studer’s (2014) example of connected the “why” that employees have. Operational teams are described by reliance, admiration, and cooperation. Setting
“If we 're going to do better for our patients, we need to create a health care system that addresses the needs of everyone, especially our sickest patients, and those who struggle to make ends meet." Said by Dr. David Blumenthal, the president of the Commonwealth Fund. As we all know, the U.S. health care system is unique compared to the other modern and more civilized nations. The U.S. does not have systematic healthcare system, no universal health care system, but U.S. have an enacted legislation mandating healthcare coverage for almost everyone. U.S. have national health service, a single-payer national health insurance system, or a multi-payer universal health insurance fund, the U.S. health care system can best be described as a hybrid
Quality Improvement Timothy Cox Notre Dame of Maryland University Quality Improvement Quality improvement (QI) consists of systematic and continuous actions in order to achieve a measurable improvement in quality of service and health status of targeted patient populations. Quality improvement is a critical tool that allows health care professionals to solve complex problems and provide patients with the best possible care available. Health care facilities are constantly trying to find ways to improve systems currently in place as well as analyze current problems to remove the root cause of undesired events; the facility I am at currently is no different. My facility currently implements the Root Cause Analysis model to
