We continuously strive to improve the health of the community we serve and become the provider of choice for Health Care delivery and education" (Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, 2012). The biggest gripe that anyone should have with this is just how generic it sounds. This mission statement does nothing to make this organization stand out from any other ones in the area. On top of this, there was no vision statement to be found. Even though it does mention is it a safety net hospital, there a good chance that the people they serve would not understand what this means, It is something that needs to be stated in plain terms.
Differentiating Roles and Main Activities of CMS and Joint Commission Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services (CMS) is affiliated to the Department of Health and Human Services which oversees federal programs. CMS aims at achieving better quality health care system, reduction of costs and improving health. CMS`s roles and main activities are to administer programs like Medicare and work with States to provide Medicaid. Also provides Children health insurance portability (CHIP), oversees Health Standards and Quality Bureau (HSQB) which “develops, interprets and implements health quality and safety standards and evaluates their impact on the utilization, quality, and cost of health care services”, (Social Security,2015, p.1).,and
Their mission is “to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value”, (Joint Commission, 2014). The accreditation from the Joint Commission can be earned by multiple health care organizations including critical access hospitals, office based surgery centers, behavioral health care facilities, and home care services. For a hospital setting, the Joint Commission places the performance measures into accountability and non-accountability measures. They look at research and if the facility is performing evidence-based care process which improves health outcomes, proximity which the care process is linked to the patient outcomes, accuracy for whether or not the care process has indeed been provided, and any adverse effects. To earn and maintain The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™, an organization must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission survey team at least every three years (Joint Commission,
To top all those challenges, it is important to remember that the company is into government managed healthcare system, which is always hard and impossible to establish changes, based on layers of bureaucracy. Triwest Healthcare Alliance has enacted some tools and techniques to attract and retain customers, which requires challenges, dedication, investment, and patience. In addition to customers, the company must satisfy its army of healthcare providers, because without them, it will be out of business. Furthermore, the company must be able to recruit and retain more healthcare providers; those providers are its core competency and must be satisfied with how they are being treated by the company.

Staff at Rex Healthcare acknowledges the importance of a team approach to positive outcomes in all areas.

Across the United States, it is common to find nurse-managed health centers that offer accessible health care services to the people. Nurse-managed health centers are a basic necessity in healthcare because they provide affordable and deserved care to the unprivileged population, while at the same time educating and training nurse practitioners. Usually, such health care institutions are led by an advanced practice nurse and as a result, need careful and efficient management and leadership skills and models. With the role that these centers serve, there is a need for an advocacy strategy for the nurse-managed health centers as a way of overseeing their effectiveness in service delivery grow. One of the factors that can improve management delivery
Physicians and Hospitals go hand in hand when it comes to the medical care of patients, and it is this relationship that allows the patients to receive the care they need and deserve. It is also this relationship that we as health care administrators need to understand. In order to fully understand this relationship we need to define the concept of the integrated physician model. We also need to explain the importance of clinical integration in the strategic planning process, and the dynamics of and controversies surrounding accountable care organizations and alternative approaches to the current health system. I will also explain the advantages and disadvantages for hospitals and physician’s models.
Regulatory compliance describes the goal that organizations aspire to achieve in their efforts to ensure that they are aware of and take steps to comply with relevant laws and regulations (Rouse, 2012). In health care, regulatory compliance is crucial to the success of a facility. It is up to the managers to ensure that the proper steps are taken to stay compliant with regulations and laws set in place for health care workers and facilities. There are several ways that managers can ensure that they are in compliance. Managers affect and can also be affected by health care policy.
Healthcare organizations’ goals includes provide quality, value priced, safe health care services and ultimately, improve health outcomes. In addition to this primary goal, healthcare organizations also seek financial stability, community value, ethics and employee engagement. In this context, leaders are asked to efficiently use the available resources to optimize the managerial approaches to direct their teams towards more productive environment and positive interactions with patients. Healthcare setting-unlike business setting-is a more complicated system that consists of different professional teams and departments that usually don’t share the same objectives or planning strategies due to the diversity in the services provided.
The changing climate as a result of the advent of value-based care continues to place significant demands on hospitals, medical providers, healthcare organizations, and physicians to take a completely new look at the marketing strategy. A coherent strategy and sustained quality are critical in today’s healthcare market to attract new patients, retain existing clients, and maintain positive and productive relationships between the patients and hospital staff. To be viable today, healthcare organizations have to utilize effective strategic planning to develop integrated marketing strategies that makes it efficient and easy for the target population to identify what they need, make informed decisions, and provide insights and new information – not just basic promotion. Also, such efforts have to be constantly evaluated to ensure highest quality that fosters better outcomes and more value for the
Based on this case the cost driver is to properly distribute the direct cost among the different divisions. Dr. Julian would like to control her departments costs by having them distributed fairly among the divisions without affecting the hospital’s reimbursement/revenue. Carroll University Hospital is currently using the standard costing unit, which is based on the cost of bed/day for inpatients. Currently the present cost accounting system that is being used at CUH takes the total direct cost of the departments, then allocates the indirect costs and distributes it among the departments evenly regardless of the actual resources being used in those departments, and without considering that there may be some patients in these divisions that may require more resources than others, this method does not seem to recognize the different activities,
