For so many years they have paid doctors and hospitals a fee for every test, procedure or other service they perform. It rewards the quality of care, but not better care. I believe the doctors and hospitals should be paid for the quality and outcome of patients’ care. The new approach to paying for health care promotes improves patient care and slows the rise in health care costs. The Alternative Quality Contract (AQC), doctors and hospitals are paid for the quality, not just the quantity of the care they provide to the members.
The rising cost of health care has cause the government to step in and control regulations and spending; thus creating a health care reform system. America is now entering into this reform. The purpose of having a universal health care system is to provide covered care for all its residence, dispel misnomers about the program, and America's health care system, before Obama Care, was organized around private insurance companies, which many of our citizens could not afford. With the new Obama health care system, everyone pays into the system and everyone receives care. Just like Britain's health care system, they provides free public healthcare to all permanent residents at the point of need.
So the return to the company will be lower as well. This is the better chose of the two plans with the health condition of the employees. The health plan is going to cost more but you pay for better services. It is like the saying “you pay for what you get”, such as if you pay a lower premium than you will have certain network of hospitals, physicians, and treatment centers that may not have the same results of paying more money and receiving better service. The Castor Enhanced plan can be overhaul to fit the need of the employees.
And once that lead is taken no other organization will be able to compete VNSNY in the home healthcare sector, and that skill will be able to be marketable nationwide. Technology will continue to help keeping administrative cost low while reaching more people in this aging nation, face with pandemic disorders such as obesity, high blood pressure and
Thesis statement Even though in order for an organization or business to succeed there must be income or revenue, the importance of delivering health care along with the affordable cost of insurance and services to the population are and should be the most important factor. Delivering healthcare According to the following article “Healthcare and its associated cost and quality is one of the most discussed and debated issues of our time.” (Smith, Nachtmann, & Pohl, 2012, p. 3) In the past several years this has been a huge topic among politicians especially those running for offices. All of us regardless of our sex, age, gender, financial status or where we live will be affected by healthcare. “From developing new partnerships with physicians, payers, and purchasers to reengineering cost structures, achieving success in the post-reform era will require healthcare leadership that embraces change, sets strategic direction, and infuses staff with a sense of accountability.” (Reilly, 2012, para. 2) The cost of healthcare continues to
Obama Care is all about fixing some of the flaws we have in our health care system, and making health care affordable for the public. Although we are the richest country in the world no many of us could afford necessary operations such as covering hospital bills for intensive care surgeries for ill babies, or bypass surgeries for coronary patients (Lawrence R. Wu, 001). If the plan goes into effect there will be decisions made by many to seek preventative care; that before it didn’t have health insurance and wouldn’t take the chance of being turned away or racking up medical expenses. Although having this plan would restrict some of the criteria insurance companies use in deciding whether or not to provide coverage for an individual or not in the end I
From the Japanese I would adopt the option to either sign up for health care or choose not to have it, but you still have to pay for it. Government would pay for the people who could not afford to pay for healthcare. I would then instate more technology in the hospitals. By instating more technology we can help patients better and even cut cost and patient wait times. There should also be a fixed price for procedures and medication.
In the 1960s there was a struggle for medical facilities to recoup their revenue from patients, now many doctors are compensated by pay for performance. Computer systems have evolved from being centralized to then being shared. With the introduction of the World Wide Web in the 1990s, healthcare facilities have the ability to communicate globally. (Wager, Lee, & Glaser, 2009) Technology is, and will always be, forever changing and improving. The challenge health information systems face are finding a unified system to work in all healthcare aspects and all healthcare facilities nationwide (and possibly globally) and keeping up with technology.
Unit 5 Assignment Behavioral Economics of Health Behavior Sharon Fenech Kaplan University Behavioral Economics of Health Behavior For many years, economists have assumed that an individual’s economic selections are at all times normal because they are driven by need, but in fact, they are sometimes limited in their effectiveness. On the surface, it may wear a thin veneer of rationality, although irrationality is a fundamental part of human nature. The theory that takes into account irrational economic behavior is called behavioral economics. “Behavioral economics seeks to unite the basic principles of neoclassical economics with the realities posed by human psychology” (What is Economics? n.d.).
