Trust Factor

There are many elements that contribute to the specialzed populations’ distrust of the healthcare system. A few of them are trustworthiness, trans cultural communication, and cultural competence. Knowing more about these elements will help to break down the distrust of the healthcare system and help to build up more trust which is extremely important because when there is no trust, patients do not seek preventative care or specialty care.
According to Cook, Kosoko-Lasaki, and O’Brien (2009) trust and distrust play significant roles in the interactions with in the healthcare system (p.16). This trust drives the frequency of the interactions between the culture and healthcare professionals. Trust can also be generational deriving from family members past experiences, also from others within the culture and this can affect future relationships within a particular group. Just like distrust can drive down interactions trust and increased understanding can increase a cultures competence. Trustworthiness can go a long way in helping clients and healthcare as a whole.
Cultural competency has been attempting to improve starting at the caregiver and institutional levels. Policies have been made to heighten the sensitivity awareness when caring for others. “A big challenge to the adoption of cultural competency education is that no single method or body of knowledge has been proven to be the most effective for educating health professionals”(Cook et al, 2009, p21). There have been no daily actions that have been agreed upon or identified and this makes it hard for healthcare professional to move past simple nondiscriminatory practices. To help set up a proper environment for all that is involved from leadership to clients there has to be information…...

Providian Trust

...Providian Trust: Tradition and Technology Business context/Key business drivers Providian Trust, headquartered in New York, is a financial and fiduciary services company. In 1994, it had 216 branches and managed $49.4 billion in trust assets with a staff of 840 full-time employees. The firm was falling behind the competition because the institutional custody business was becoming extremely technology-intensive, with some of the larger players outsourcing their entire backroom function in order to make large operations more effective. Therefore, a project was initiated to convert the trust division’s outdated information system into a more efficient system using Access Plus, a new trust and custody management software. Initiatives objectives/Benefits Intensive competitive pressures, client demands, and some internal problems were driving the need for the initiative. Specifically: 1. Competitors were having more advanced systems and technical competitive advantages 2. Clients were unhappy about the quality of the services 3. Decentralized control and lack of a clear distribution of responsibility Providian Trust wished to solve the above problems through the implementation of the new system. They also expected that the improved computerized trust system would consolidate and centralize data administration, give trust officers more time to interact with clients, reduce the number of full-time employees from 840 to 660, and save $9.2 million annually...

Trust

...Values are important in anyone’s life. People are raised by different values. I believe, once a person is considered an adult it is up to them to either follow those same values or create their own that they will follow. The five values that I chose were trust, happiness, independence, love/affection, and achievement/ success. After analyzing and trying to decide on one value that means the most to me, I realized that four of the values I chose all play an intricate roll in one value. My achievement and success in my life is very important to me. Without having achievements or accomplishing something that I have set out to do, I would be an extremely miserable and lost soul. I believe everyone was put on this earth to achieve or accomplish something. It is up to the individual whether they are successful. While reflecting on previous years in my life, I noticed that trust, happiness, independence and love/affection have almost deterred my courage to achieve and succeed in certain situations. Trust is the very thing that everybody in this world desires, or at least should desire from one another. Trust is the reason a husband does not question his wife’s whereabouts, because he believes her faithfulness. Trust is the reason a boss does not check behind the work of his employees, because he knows that they will do it to his standards. I believe that trust is faith. When I say that I am placing my faith in somebody, I trust them. Whenever I die, it is one thing that I...

Trust Factor

...HLT 205 – July 6, 2013 Ms. Daisy Savarirajan Trust Factor I have realized the United States has a lot of work ahead of them to do with our health care system compared to other countries, such as Japan, Great Britain, Germany and the rest of the world with national health care coverage for all. I wonder what does it takes to get us there. I believe, if the President, Congress and the rich all come into agreement with some hard decision and realities they can come up with a solution. Since the rich is running the country, the little people have to suffer the consequences because it all boils down to the cost, The cost for health care is the biggest challenge that everyone has to come into agreement. If we have a standardized price and cost for everything, such as you premium insurance cost will be $1,500 a month and the specialties services $50.00 deductible, hospital stays $100.00 a day, and prescriptions drugs $10.00 for every script for everyone, this will make a difference for everyone. The Obama plan cost over a trillion dollars, if we can mirror the Pelosi/Reid plans and not have it stopped by the bipartisan majority we can make head way. We will have to compromise and fight until this time, or we will have big problems of everyone gouging on who can make more money, until we can get everyone on one accord with national health care plan as the Japanese has established.

Hris & Trust

...1. INTRODUCTION In this term paper, I will explore the notion of ‘Technology Trust’ and if it impacts Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) implementation success. According to my research, there are many studies focusing on how an HRIS project can be initiated and implemented efficiently and effectively. However, there is not much information if ‘technology trust’ is an influential factor to reach the ultimate goal of HRIS implementation. The study Lippert and Swiercz (2005) worked to explore several propositions about the relationship between HRIS and Technology Trust and the effect of the relationship on HRIS implementation success. We know that trust is an essential component of all relationships. Research shows that trust is not only useful, but also central to understanding individual behavior in varied domains such as teamwork, risk-taking and job performance, information systems implementation, etc. (McKnight et al, 2011) Therefore, it is crucial to explore if the notion of “technology trust” helps explain why there are HRIS implementation failures and explain how to integrate the HRIS implementation process since it is proven that most organizations deploy less than 25% of the functionality of HRIS (Boroughs et al, 2008). Browne and Roguch (2001) stated that “despite the good faith efforts by organizations, analysts, and users, majority of systems are abandoned before completion or fail to meet user requirements.” The recent reports explain reasons...

Trust

...   A/B Trusts An A/B Trust is any type of trust that splits into two separate and distinct trusts upon the death of the grantor. One of the separate and distinct trusts is a Credit Shelter Trust, which is designed to hold as much of the grantor's property as is sheltered from the federal estate tax by virtue of the unified credit; i.e., $2,000,000 for decedent's dying in years 2006, 2007, and 2008, and $3,500,000 for decedent's dying in the year 2009. The other separate and distinct trust is a Marital Trust, which is designed to hold the remainder of the decedent's property, which is sheltered from the federal estate tax by virtue of the unlimited marital deduction. These separate and distinct trusts are designed to eliminate or reduce the federal estate tax liability of a married couple over the deaths of both spouses. An A/B Trust arrangement can be created under a living trust or a testamentary trust, since these provisions do not take effect until after the grantor's death. See "Credit Shelter Trusts" and "Marital Trusts." See also "Family Trusts" and "By-Pass Trusts." Back to Table of Contents     Asset Protection Trusts An "Asset Protection Trust" is a type of trust that is designed to protect assets from the claims of creditors.

Public Trust

...Public administration is, widely speaking, the study and carrying out of policy. As an ethical effort, public administration is connected to following the public good through the formation of civil society and social justice. The adjunct public often indicates government, though it gradually encloses not-for-profit organizations like as those of civil society or any unit and its management not exactly acting in self-centeredness. The term public administration every now and then is taken to signify hardly to government administration. What’s pubic trust? Trust produced for the upgrade of government assistance and not for the advantage of one or more people. It may or may not be a humanitarian trust. It’s Also termed as purpose trust.Public service is public trust. This means that each Federal worker has the duty to the US Government and its residents to place devotion to the Constitution, laws, and ethical ideas above private reach. Government employment are obligated in employing accountable people for sensible roles for instance handling finances, supervising processes, examining acquiescence, and guarding people and belongings, among others. While many government jobs don’t demand a security permission, a number of sensitive positions— most often ones for safeguard of national security— command mostly well informed and accountable employees. Such positions are carefully chosen as public trust positions. From doing research and from what I’ve seen, Public...

In the article the writer also lists 10 ways to improve trust within the workplace when one is in management. These 10 steps are as followed: 1. Involve staffers in decisions directly affecting them- Employees do not like to be left in the blind about business decisions that affects them.

It gives employees the opportunity to voice their questions or concerns, suggestions or ideas, and be heard my their leaders. 2.

First we briefly review the role of trust. Then we analyze the state-of-the-art of the theoretical and empirical literature on trust creation and antecedents for experienced trustworthiness. As a result of the literature review and our knowledge of the context in praxis, we create a model on organizational trust building where the interplay of inter-organizational and inter-personal trust is scrutinized. Potential challenges for our model are first the asymmetry of organizations and actors and secondly the volatility of the business. The opportunity window for partnering firms may be very short i.e. there is not much time for natural development of trust based on incremental investments and social or character similarity, but so called “fast” or “swift” trust is needed. As a managerial contribution we suggest some practices and processes, which could be used for organizational trust building. These are developed from the viewpoint of large organization boundary-spanners (partner/vendor managers...

Trust Mechanisms

... reliable sources. It relies on formal logic to derive new information. Literature Review 1 Trust strategies for the semantic web [6] Trust is the basic element in semantic web. Two or more individuals, companies, or countries can communicate at their best and make progress if a bond of trust is built between them. Adopting such a trustworthy behavior, by every person involved in the communication, makes the environment more effective and efficient. Semantic web basically joins or integrates data (on web) from multiple sources (web applications) and presents it on one platform. So when so many sources are involved, there is a huge factor of trust that needs to be addressed. This paper focuses on the probable ways that an entity, within the semantic web, may follow order to communicate with other entities. Optimistic systems: trusts all other systems on the network, trusting every system is in the nature of such systems. But if a real reason exists, only then it distrusts. Pessimistic Systems: As there are optimistic systems there are also pessimistic systems. Centralized systems: all the information related to trust is in a central system, the individual entity has trust only this centralized system and leave the rest to it. Transitive Systems: The main goal of such systems is to gain information and knowledge from other unknown entities on the network. Cost and Benefits: Every strategy has its own properties, so before following any strategy......
