Introduction The current health care industry has changed due to the approach used to provide services to patients. There is an increase in the level of infections received through the process of treatment. Sepsis infection is a condition that has grown in the health care industry, and it requires critical evaluation in order to get a solution. The national health regulatory agencies have developed some strategies that help minimize negative outcomes by way of ensuring that the products for injection are first tested. The focus of the paper is to come up with a strategy that will be used by the health care industry in ensuring that proper services are offered without developing any infections to the patients.
Furthermore, the development of Meaningful Use of EHRs provides a standard and modern approach to improve health information technology nationwide. Not only will the patient population receive improve quality of care, but transparency approaches lead to better accountability in care. Communication between healthcare providers and healthcare organizations will be more effective. Patients and families will have more access to their information and be in a better position to participate in decisions regarding their healthcare. The vision of the HITECH Act is to develop and implement tools to transform the nation’s health care system, which will ensure
Pay-for-Performance Tarvis T. Edwards HCS/531 November 03, 2014 Rachael Kehoe Pay-for-Performance Even though the effects of pay-for-performance will influence the future of health care in patient care, reimbursement to the healthcare providers will require close monitoring. The physician receives reimbursement for providing quality care and for making quality innovations. Pay-for-performance offers financial incentives to close the gap in healthcare the patients receive and the healthcare the patients could receive. The effect of pay-for-performance for the healthcare providers depends on his or her quality and efficiency of services he or she provides
The implementation of EHRs in LTC facilities or home health can manage patients care to promote improvements in the patients outcome and possible help decrease medical cost. In this forever changing healthcare industry, which stresses continuity of care, the movement to push for EHRs in LTC facilities is necessary. Review of another study stressed that the healthcare team is vital in the implementing of EHRs. The healthcare team approach is vital to the success of the EHRs and vice versa. If done effectively, care coordination puts patients at the center of the care process, encouraging, engaging as well as responsibility.
The recommendation that I believe would do the most good toward getting more URMs into the medical field would be the one that addresses the costs and financing of health professions education. This recommendation involves the reexamination of costs and financing of health professions training with an emphasis on the reduction or elimination of many health care field training costs for those that have low-incomes or are members of a URM. First off I think that all of the other recommendations are great and would defiantly help, but when it comes right down to it our world revolves around the almighty dollar. We can do everything in the world, even beg minority’s to get into the health care field, but they won’t be able to do it if they can’t afford the education. So, making changes in costs and financing would go a long way toward removing the financial obstacle, that way the other recommendations have a much better chance of being successful.

The term "managed care" is used to describe a variety of techniques intended to reduce the cost of providing health benefits and improve the quality of care (Wikipedia, 2008). The many types of Managed Care Programs that are currently being used in the United States are used with the intent to reduce unnecessary health care costs by using a variety of methods, such as “…providing economic incentives for physicians and patients to select less costly forms of care programs for reviewing the medical necessity of specific services; increased beneficiary cost sharing; controls on inpatient admissions and lengths of stay; the establishment of cost-sharing incentives for outpatient
Government officials must work hard with National Health care to get its economy back to normal. As for what is good for the company and what is good for the people in Kava, it is recommended that no matter what and how, Kava has to be reconstructed. During the process the CEO, the Strategic Planning Manager, and Nik have concluded that cleaning up the mess, providing food and shelter, transportation and other assistance the people in Kava will benefit from the reconstruction of Kava. The CEO believed that Kava have done many things for other organizations in other parts of the world.

Introduction With quality, being a big factor in healthcare, patient safety has proven to be one of most pressing health care challenges for hospitals and providers. The Affordable Care Act, which includes policies to help physicians, hospitals, and other caregivers improve safety and quality of patient care, is also intended to make health care more affordable. According to healthcare.gov, Medicare will begin to reward hospitals that provide high quality care for their patients through the new Hospital Value-Based Purchasing Program. This means that Medicare will pay hospitals for inpatient acute care services based on care quality, not just the quantity of the services they provide. Changing how payments are made to hospitals for services, there is an expectation that there will be higher quality care for all hospital patients.
Therefore, doctors, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and the individual themselves are in fact what makes up the the health care industry that needs to reduce the risks from using medicines and to get the most benefit out of them. In order to make medicine use safer, one must speak up about their past and present because the more information a health care organization knows about them, the better they can plan the care that’s right for them. Another important factor that FDA effects in the health care industry is finding the correct facts. Before the health care organization can decide on a prescription or OTC medicine, one must know understand as much about it as possible. The most important factors to identify are brand and generic names, active ingredients, inactive ingredients, uses, warnings, possible interactions, side effects, possible tolerance, dependence, or addiction, overdose, directions, storage instructions, and expiration
