As you learn about health care delivery in the United States, it is important to understand its history to develop a working knowledge as you progress through the course.

You are the curator of the first Health Care Hall of Fame Museum that pays tribute to the five most significant developments in the evolution of health care in the United States.

Prepare a proposal of the five main developments you would include. Be specific and draw from your readings or other research to demonstrate your understanding of newfound concepts, theories, and vocabulary. Include evidence-based information and your personal analysis describing why these exhibits should be included and how they shaped the current health care system in the United States. Descriptions and analysis must use complete sentences. Format your proposal consistent with APA guidelines.

...Hospice Care in the United States Catherine Harmer HCS.212 Feb.23, 2013 Prof. Mark Miller Hospice Care in the United States Hospice care is one of the best services the health care industry has to offer, and is available to all walks of life. When the patient has reached end of life, hospice provides support to the loved ones as well. “Hospice focuses on caring, not curing and, in most cases; care is provided in the patient’s home. Hospice care also is provided in freestanding hospice centers, hospitals, and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. Hospice services are available to patients of any age, religion, race, or illness. Hospice care is covered under Medicare, Medicaid, most private insurance plans, HMOs, and other managed care organizations” (NHPCO, 2011, par.2). Hospice care has evolved over many years and has a lot to offer: Patients are kept as comfortable as humanly possible. For loved ones, finding peace or comfort is likely more achievable when helping their loved ones let go, making the course of grieving and acceptance much less difficult. Caregivers, employees, and volunteers are faced day-to-day with the reality that life as we know it does expire; it is only fitting then, that greater patience and appreciation of self, family, and life in general become more characteristic of the providers than might be otherwise. This facet of health care, one might fear, would require tremendous resilience. On the other hand however, facilitating...

... ranking that is done by Dartmouth Atlas doesn’t consider the prolonged care that improves lives. For example if there is a hospital that spends a lot of money on five patients and they stay alive and there is one more hospital that spends very less on five patients and they all die then the first hospital will be ranked lower than the second one. The reason is that Dartmouth compares the costs incurred before a patient’s death. I think with such a ranking system, a hospital’s healthcare system cannot be properly measured. The ground for measuring the performance of a hospital is cost and not the care so this evolves a wrong culture and hence the idea for health care is spoiled. This article discusses the issues of bias in spending given to different hospitals and also the improper system of hospital rankings which results in wrong culture in the hospitals. Due to wrong distribution of funds to hospitals there is a loss of proper health care system and also due to monopoly by doctors in some regions it results in un-affordability of proper healthcare by many people. There should be a proper system for controlling health care finance not by implementing wrong rules that gives rise to wrong culture. The affordability of healthcare should be worked upon and as the first article says there is an expansion plan in the healthcare finance, hopefully it will solve the matter to a great extent and there will be proper allocation of resources.

Audit procedures for testing database backup controls are: The auditor should verify that backup is performed routinely and frequently to facilitate the recovery of lost, destroyed, or corrupted data without excessive reprocessing. Production databases should be copied at regular intervals. Backup policy should strike a balance between the inconvenience of frequent backup activities and the business disruption caused by excessive reprocessing that is needed to restore the database after a failure. The auditor should verify that automatic backup procedures are in place and functioning, and that copies of the database are stored off-site for further security. 5.1 The SDLC process is of interest to accountants and auditors for two reasons.

The Museum will be composed of five exhibits, which are Medicare, Modern Health Insurance, Hospice, Long term care and the Public Health service. The first part of this proposal for the museum will discuss the history and impact of these health care developments on the health care system. The second part will be an overview of how these five exhibits relate to each other in the health care system. Medicare Exhibit 1 As part of the Social Security Act the Medicare Program was signed into law on July 30, 1965 by President Johnson. This program came into place because Americans over 65 could not get insurance. Created in the 1960 it was based on the private insurance system that was in use at the time. Administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicare is purely a government program Austin and Wetle (2012).

...HSM 545 Health Service Systems You Decide Week 6 Devry University August 17, 2013 In order to run a hospital it cannot be ran like any other enterprise. You will need to make several complex decisions and tough choices. The challenges we are facing with the Middleton hospital are focused around factors of the Tanner and cannon philosophy. We will also need to address any government stipulations which can interfere with objectives that need to be accomplished. The main point is to start work on the major issues before the hospital comes to an irreparable point. The first issue we will address is the payer mix issue. The Payer Mix. The Reimbursement issues with Medicare and Medicaid have become a revolving issue which has initiated the Obama care policy. Hopes are the plan is established in a way so the United States is able to resurface from its current bankrupt state. The problem today is paying for patients who are not able to afford the high prices of medical care. The first change provided by the CFO would be a breakdown of all the payers the hospital can manage at one time so adjustments can be made in the company budget. “Consider the classic hospital payer mix—the current mix for many hospitals—where Medicare accounts for 40 to 50 percent of a hospital’s net revenues. Then add 5 to 12 percent for payers that come from Medicaid and the sum suddenly seems to make it virtually impossible for a hospital...

...Assignment #2: Financing and Structuring Health Care. 1. Describe and identify the three main types of health insurance in the U.S. Today in the United States, the three main types of health insurances are as follows: 1) Voluntary Health Insurance (VHI): is a private health insurance currently used for industrial employment. It can be subdivided into three categories, such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield, private or commercial insurance companies, and health maintenance organizations (HMO). Blue Cross was initiated by Baylor teachers in Dallas, Texas who organized to provide hospital care for three cents (Williams& Torrens, 2010). The Farmer’s Union started its Cooperative Health Association in 1929 in Oklahoma. It was the first HMO. 2) Social Health Insurance (SHI): This has two major programs sponsored by the U.S. government. These programs are worker’s compensation and pain- related to job injury, and Medicare. Worker’s compensation is the first type of social insurance enacted in a nation and the vast majority of nations worldwide have some form of industrial accident insurance (Williams& Torrens, 2010). It provides two basics benefits, such as cash replacement of portion of wages lost by disability from work injury, and payment for all or part of medical care. For example, a caregiver had back injury upon lifting a handicap patient at the Nursing Home. Medicare is an insurance program run by the Health Care Financing, a federal agency (Robert H...

... Option A: New to Health Care Makessia T. Ealey January 12, 2014 Option A: New to Health Care Technology in health care can be complex, but it is essential in every aspect. One aspect of technology is the usage of electronic medical records. I am very familiar with electronic medical records because my aunt is a nurse, and she often tells me stories of events that occur at her hospital due to the inappropriate use of the records. Some of these stories are horror stories, and I am often in disbelief that the issue occurs in the first place. Electronic medical records are digital versions of a paper chart that contains all of a patient’s medical history. Generally, electronic medical records are used by providers for diagnosis and treatment. Any information included within electronic medical records impacts the well-being of the patients. The electronic medical records track data over time, identify patients who are due for preventive visits and screening and monitor how patients measure up to certain parameters, such as vaccinations and blood pressure readings. All in all, electronic medical records improve the quality of care in a practice as a whole. The article “How copy and paste in electronic medical records affects patient care” by Elizabeth Hipp explains how technology such as electronic medical records in healthcare must be approached with caution. I chose this article because after hearing real stories about electronic medical records, I gained a great interest...

... see who will bid the lowest prices for an acceptable level of service (Lawlor, 2002, p. 455). History of Reform Efforts While one can easily become cynical over the state of American health care, it is important to present a balanced picture. Prior to the Affordable Care Act of 2010, there have been notable efforts to try and change or reform the system. During his two-term presidency (1993–2001), former president Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Rodham Clinton worked to bring universal health care to the United States. Even before this, there were significant attempts to try and reform the system. During the first two decades of the twentieth century, labor unions attempted to reform the American health care. Since there was no requirement for employers to provide health care to their workers, workers would lose wages if they missed work due to illness and would have to pay for medical care out of pocket. This dual problem often left workers with huge debts. According to Hoffman (2003), "In 1915, progressive reformers proposed a system of compulsory health insurance to protect workers against both wage loss and medical costs during sickness" (p. 76). In the 1960s, President Lyndon Johnson attempted reform by enacting Medicare, which is a federal program that provides health insurance coverage to qualifying very low-income Americans, particularly among those over age sixty-five and children under eighteen. By creating Medicare, the most vulnerable in society would...

...Introduction Because of the severe consequences that can arise in the health care system, being ethical should be greatly. This paper includes an interview conducted on November 1St 2014, over the phone, on a patient’s hospitalization experience, and how it is related to ethics in health care. Description of Patient experience Patient A shared that she was hospitalized at Columbia University to undergo a Thymecthomy in September 2014. The patient was diagnosed in late 2005 with Myasthenia Gravis. This was patient A’s second time being hospitalized. The patient had been hospitalized in 2006 at George Washington University after having a Myasthenia Gravis crisis. However, this was Patient A’s first time having a surgery. She was put on IV for three days and being watched. Patient A has since regularly been a patient at GWU to monitor her disease. Therefore, Patient A is in regular contact with healthcare workers. Patient A tells that she was referred to a surgeon at Columbia University for a thymecthomy (Patient A, personal communication, November 1st 2014). Myasthenia Gravis is a chronic disease, and the chances of remission are rare. Thymecthomy has in certain cases improved the patient’s health after . Patient A was offered two alternatives to the surgery. An invasive one which would require an incision, or a minimally invasive one, where cameras would be inserted on the side of the chest area, leaving very little scars, and allowing for a much faster to recovery...

By setting professional limitations, both the service user are care worker can be benefited as they agree to have a required relationship. On the College of Psychologists of Ontario BULLETIN (1998 cited in College of Alberta Psychologists 2000), it was stated that “boundaries make the relationship professional, and safe for the client, and set the parameters within which psychological services are delivered‟. Maintaining the right relationship required also maintains adherence to professional ethics thus promoting respect and dignity of one’s self. 3.2 Demonstrate how you respect the rights of individuals you support as a health and social care worker and explain the types of models of support. The support and care models ensure the care workers to maintain a fine relationship with co workers and also with their clients. This rapport building can be done efficiently with a little compassion while rendering their services in a trust worthy way. Trusting a person cannot happen immediately in the first instance, but it can be build by sincerity at work. If your actions and words you deliver are consistent under all circumstances will enable others to put their trust on you. In a work situation, if you are trust worthy, then your colleagues will rely on you when a collaboration of care is required or they will be rest assured that you will be able to perform for any given task......
