"Good communicators listen objectively, avoid making value judgments, and include patients in health care decisions" (Burkhardt & Nathaniel, 2014, p. 221). Teamwork enhances empowerment for both nurses and patients by supporting that "we can enable others to develop awarement of areas that need change; foster a desire to take action; and share resources, skills, and opportunities that support the change" (Burkhardt & Nathaniel, 2014, p. 501). Healthcare professionals are separated into individualy focused groups called a intradisciplinary teams that collaborate with other specialized professionals, creating an interdisciplinary healthcare team. Differences between Interdisciplinary and Intardisciplinary Teams Healthcare professionals collaborate to create both interdiscipliary and intradisciplinary teams to focus on providing the greatest quality care possible. Healthcare is to be patient-centered, having one purpose which is to be focused on the patient.
When I first saw the title of the article “Why Innovation in Health Care Is So Hard” I was expecting it to be another negative prognosis (pun intended) of our healthcare system. Even before reading it’s content, I could list many of the hurdles that people from all parts of the sector face that would be expounded upon; the pleasant surprise was the upbeat, practical messages that the presents, actually turning the very obstacles into assets! It is an interesting concept to consider that the major forces that hinder progress can actually be used to drive innovation. For example, key people, or “players,” are an oft overlooked force which, as is demonstrated, can literally close down an new initiative. Yet by recognizing how it will affect these key players, their support can be a powerful force to contribute to the success of new ideas or startups.
According to Porter-O’Grady (2007), accountability is the most overused and misunderstood element of leadership today. Accountability can frequently offer the motivation desirable to make certain that workers prevail over their natural resistance. Accountability measures involve both strict and unceremonious measures geared toward assessing fulfillment and allotment of the fulfillment and feedback by the leader in charge of accountability. Accountability is important in health care because presentation extents are more practicable with such large sizes. The main explanation for this advancement is to concentrate on hospitals and their medical staffs and create accountability for purpose concerning aptitude for equipment, specialists, and beds, which is a main driver of optional use and fees.
Academic and Professional Goals Alan M. Gavami Walden University Dr. Miriam Ross Academic and Professional Goals Currently, I make positive societal change with one patient at a time by showing genuine care and understanding of how they are different with different needs. This is one reason of several that I chose Walden University, since Walden has a keen awareness and teaching on multicultural competence, I find this to be Paramount. Managers in today’s healthcare environment are much more involved in management, planning, cost containment and efficiency, while providing a better work environment for the hospital staff, and better care for the patients and their family. The skills I expect to gain through getting my master’s with Walden University should give me the ability to recognize and understand problems we face on daily bases in the healthcare system. With this knowledge I plan to work toward a more cost effective and delivery system with healthcare provided to the patient population.
Value Chain: Healthcare Marketing Name Instructor’s Name Course Name Value Chain In organizations, values are very important as they facilitate in associating with the internal as well as external components and direct the relationships amongst the various systems (Magretta, 2012). Generally, value chain evaluates the value which each and every process in an organization or activity adds to an organization or business’ products or services. The idea of value chain is based on random collection of machinery, money, or equipment in an organization. As such, a competitive value chain aids an organization, for instance, healthcare organizations to stand apart from the competition.The value has to be unique and best set to deliver exceptional services that are not offered by competitors. In a health organization, I would ensure that as the marketing director, I advocate for latest supportive services of the value chain by lobbying for current technological equipment used in health institutions during management meetings.This is because in the health sector, contemporary times have seen the advance in technology enabling treatment of various diseases.

It is impossible to draw a clear boundary, as it pertains to the anticipated end results (Rogers 75). It can also be viewed that both the patient and the therapist are interested in a positive end result and both work towards finding the best way to address the patient’s pathology. The relationship between the patient and the therapist can thus be viewed as one of mutual benefit, but one which aims at the patient’s eventual recovery. In either case both physical therapy and occupational therapy, the therapist takes on the leading role and guides the patient through provision of pertinent information which would lead them in making informed choices and in turn lead to the attainment of the best possible outcomes (Rogers 91). A major dissimilarity between the two forms of therapy that is generally alluded to, is that while physical therapy aims at achieving healing for the patient through actions directed at the patient, occupational therapy seeks to attain the same wellbeing of the patient, through modification of their work environment (Bateman and Holmes 66).
It is therefore crucial by which the nurses can figure out themselves in order to be able to establish on existing strength and applicable forthcoming action. As a care assistant I have worked in prevent infection, for instance through maintaining hand hygiene. However, I unfortunately witnessed bad handwashing technique by the qualified member staffs and among my colleague in many times which has conclusively brisked me to do my own research. I belief that by doing this I could able to expand my knowledge and skills in those areas of imperfection with enable me to provide high standard of evidence based care to the patient. In this essay I have not followed any reflective model as on one hand, I found difficult to cover all aspects of this ample topic and the other hand I will not describe only one particular event because there were many occasions which shown wrong pratice of hand washing.

Team building can provide business with the skills they need to work more cohesively as a group.
Aetna hires a dedicated innovation officer to drive new ideas in each of its major department (e.g., care management, product development, pharmacy). Integrating these change agents into operational teams (as opposed to putting them in a separate innovation center) helps Aetna better identify opportunities for incremental improvements to the customer experience as well as more radical new approaches. “Aetna starts projects by first understanding customer needs. Aetna focuses its innovation efforts on eliminating perceived gaps in its existing customer experience” (Aetna, 2012). That’s why it starts each innovation effort by developing a clear understanding of what a customer wants whether that customer is a consumer, a benefits manager, or a clinician.
