...every day, 500 Americans die every week and 2, 175 Americans die every month due to the lack of health insurance. These numbers speak volumes on how many Americans are dying for coverage. Health care reform has been an ongoing battle between policymakers and legislation for years and with the promise of a new President there seemed to be relief on the way. One March 23, 2010 President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act. The Affordable Care Act is said to be the biggest overhaul in the United States healthcare system since Medicare and Medicaid in 1965 (“HealthCare.gov”, 2012). This recent health care reform has expanded access to care in numerous ways and will continue to improve up until the 2014. The new health care reform will improve the quality of health care for American’s as well as more affordable. The Affordable Care Act guarantees that individuals, small business owners and families will have access and control of their own health care (“HealthCare.gov”, 2012). Cutting the cost of premiums for families and small business owners by providing billions of dollars in tax relief, this is said to be the biggest tax cut for middle-class families in health care history (“HealthCare.gov”, 2012). The act will also reduce out-of-pocket expense and preventive care will be fully covered without out-of-pockets expense for families. Individuals that that do not have health insurance will be able to choose the insurance that fits their needs. Insurance companies......

...Importance of Teams By Marina Naranjo HCS/325 Health Care Management October 01, 2012 Dalynn Campbell In order to improve efficiency and customer service in my department to focus on teamwork, I would focus on the problems that exist within the team. The next step would be to research the team and figure out what their advantage points are and what they need help on. The third step would be course of action which may be just to re-arrange the team and see whether or not someone may need to be terminated. The fourth step would be to involve the rest of the team in on the plan. This will get individuals involved in the decision. The final step would be to compare the accomplishments with the originally planned objectives. If the results are what are desired then the process just needs to be reviewed and renewed to allow for corrective actions. Teams are essential to health care because it has been suggested that "each team member's abilities, skills experience, attitudes, values, role perceptions and personality – all the things that make a person unique – determine what they are willing and able to contribute, their level of motivation, methods of interaction with other group members and degree of acceptance of group norms and the organization's goals" This suggests the need to focus on individual characteristics that have been found to contribute to teamwork, as "pre-requisite characteristics of effective teamwork" (Leggat, 2007, para. 5).

...schools. Nursing Board members are generally made up of both members of the public and those within the nursing profession, such as Registered Nurses. Members of the Michigan Board of Nursing may be appointed by the Governor and/or the state of Michigan Legislature. When it comes to integrity, Integrity is applied allover in a work place. Whatever your task is to be done with responsibility, you should obey them terms and condition of the service, you should provide what you are paid for and that’s just what they do. They not only do it for the pay but for the people they are helping every day. The Michigan board of nursing now supports and protects the profession of practical nursing and they also support care givers. When it comes to the requirements, the Michigan Public Health Code and board administrative rules requires every nurse to complete, during the 2-year period prior to the renewal of the license, at least 25 hours of continuing education, with at least one hour in pain and symptom management, in courses or programs approved by the Board. Pursuant to this requirement, the Board of Nursing has promulgated rules to establish specific criteria for the Board’s approval of continuing education courses and programs, also each nurse is required to complete not less than 25 hours of continuing education contact hours that are approved by the Board during the 2 years preceding an application for renewal or relicensure.

Assignment 1: Law and Health Care System Administration

...1. Justify your position about the importance of the physician-patient and hospital-patient relationships. The relationships of the physician –patient and hospital-patient are both extremely important and equally impact the health of the patient as well as the success of the hospital and physician. The physician-patient relationship is the center of health care due to the fact that one of the main aspects of a patient’s care is his/her discussion with the physician. In the past, patients had to rely solely on the directions and information provided by the physician in order to make important health care decisions. Patients were also limited in their access to health care facilities as well as hospitals. In today’s society this is not the case because most patients have the ability to seek second opinions, research alternate conditions/treatments, as well as rate physician care/hospital services through social media on the internet. A cancer patient in TN may travel to TX to receive treatment from a specific specialist and/or a highly recommended facility. Since the dynamics of the physician-patient and hospital-patient has changed, the relationship has changed but its importance has not. Therefore, it is essential that both the physician and the hospital facility itself have a good rapport with the patient in an effort to continuously build the relationship. A poor relationship between the patient and the hospital and/or physician could compromise the ability of the patient......

...Patient Safety/Quality Care/Improvement Case Study The Patient Safety defines health errors as “the disappointment of a designed action to be finished as planned or the use of an incorrect plan to attain an aim(Longo, D., Hewitt, J. E., Ge, B., & Schubert, S., 2007).” Health errors do not all effect in damage or grievance. Checkup errors that reason damage or hurt are occasionally called avoidable unpleasant actions that are the damage is a reflection to be due to a therapeutic intervention, not principal patient circumstances. Errors consequential in severe injury or death are considered “sentinel events” by the Joint Commission (Longo, D., Hewitt, J. E., Ge, B., & Schubert, S., 2007). The case study, Appearance May Not is Reality, was the focus of this assignment because of privacy practices. The purpose of this assignment was to identify key ethical and legal issues, determine which elements of the Code of Ethics of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) would help administrators determine the right course of action, identify potential ethics committee actions, and administrator’s role in preventing and addressing the issues in the aforementioned case study.

...Assignment 2 1. Health production function can improve the health status of patients by determining the relative importance of medical expenditures in decreasing death rates. HPF concept is being used more by employers and MCO that face financial pressure to reduce medical cost. The health status can be improved by changes in lifestyle, patient education, and environmental improvements. By following those suggestions it would allow them to direct their attention to programs that are cost effective. Also by allocating funds in those manners would achieve a great reduction in death rates. 2. First, health insurance coverage has been comprehensive with low deductible and small copayments that individuals face a very low out-of-pocket price when they go to the hospital or a specialist. Patients use more medial services than ever if they had to pay a greater portion of the cost. Given the low copayments and incentives inherent in fee-for-service payments to providers, which the medical community lobbies for increased expenditures. Second, the primary objective of government medical expenditures has not been to improve health and decrease death rates. Medicare is for the elderly while half of Medicaid spending is for the care of the elderly in nursing homes. The purpose of these government programs help finance medical needs of the elderly. 3. Employers can decrease medical spending by recognizing that their employees’ health can be improved more cost effectively......

...Basic Argument: Final Draft June 20, 2014 Health Care: Profit Motive “Is the physician a healer of the sick or a maker of money?” In book 1 of Plato’s The Republic, Socrates questions about the physician being a healer, or a maker of money and trying to balance the two is much easier in our time than it was in Plato’s (www.literaturepage.com). The famous Hippocratic Oath affirms that doctors should protect the sick, and not only just from being sick, but also from injustice and harm, and instructs physicians not to prey on patient’s vulnerability for their own gain (medterms.com). Today, few medical schools require their students to take the oath, the principle of placing the benefit of the sick above one’s own self-interest remains at the center of the medical profession, so we think? Treating the sick and offering quality care to those who suffer are acts of compassion, which to this day are being destroyed by profit driven health care. We ask ourselves how could there be over 45 million people in the United States who do not have health care. Well, first let’s see how we can actually define Universal Health Care, which is also known as Universal Health Coverage, is a specific type of health care where everyone is provided coverage regardless of their income, race, age, pre-existing conditions, gender, or wealth. If you are a legal resident of the United States you are eligible for universal health care. When we think of the purpose of universal health care, it’s to......

In these years that have come many of the changes that has been promised to America, has yet to occur and is still the same as before. The most recent health care reform is The Affordable Care Act which has expanded access to health care which was created and signed to make sure that all Americans in the United States have affordable health care available to them and to monitor the rising of the health care costs. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the most comprehensive reform of the United States medical system in at least 45 years. The ACA transforms the non-group insurance market in the United States and mandates that most residents have health insurance, significantly expands public insurance and subsidizes private insurance coverage, raises revenues from a variety of new taxes, and reduces and reorganizes spending under the nation’s largest health insurance plan, Medicare.
