Making a Difference (Department of Health (DH) 1999) suggests that effective care is the product of interagency working. Professionals working in collaboration provide care which is designed to meet the needs of the patient. This concept was further promoted with the publication of The NHS Plan (DH 2000a) a ten year programme of reform practice. The NHS Plan (DH 2000a) aimed to create a service designed around patient needs, encouraging professionals to work together to meet the needs of patients. This shift in attitudes towards healthcare was instrumental in shaping the way in which interprofessional working is viewed and adopted today.

Barriers and Benefits of Telemonitoring for Heart Failure Christine O'Shaughnessy Aurora University NUR 3015 Deann Edgers February 27, 2013 Abstract In an effort to provide telemonitoring care to heart failure patients, care providers examine barriers and benefits to the adoption of the technology. Health care professionals examine what motivates healthcare to improve the technology and disperse it to more patients. Medicare guidelines that encourage an audit level focus upon readmissions could soon financially encourage hospitals to turn to telemonitoring. The current equipment uses hardware, software (with clinical parameters), and telecommunications in a real time capacity. Care providers drive continuous improvement of telecommunication and address secure data transfer issues as more patients and health care professionals adopt the technology.

A marginal analysis will offer insight into the benefits of procuring physicians in rural or low income urban areas compared to the additional costs of having them provide services (Investopedia, 2014). This tool can help an organization maximize the profits associated with bringing in a new physician (Investopedia, 2014). By analyzing economic expansion, population growth, the work effort of physicians, and the services provided by mid-level providers such as physician assistants and nurse practitioners a manager or administrator will get a complete picture of the benefits and financial risks associated with a new physician (Cooper, Getzen, McKee, & Laud, 2002). By investigating these four trends, an organization can contemplate the need for more physicians in their area and whether or not their long-term needs will be met by a new
