Healthcare policy-making impacts on healthcare delivery system. Global health as an endeavour has expanded strikingly over the past two decades and offers great promise to improve lives in resource-poor settings. Broad public interest in the health and wellbeing of people in the developing world, and of poor and marginalised individuals in advanced economies, has grown. Complex diseases recently held to be untreatable, and thus universally fatal in such settings, are tackled with increasing success. Scholarly work on or relevant to global health is also growing rapidly. Funded research is on the rise, focusing principally on basic-science discovery, the development of new clinical resources (preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic), and more recently evaluation of particular interventions. This focus on technological solutions is a source of great optimism and consistent with the flow of funds that has supported career advancement in academic medicine and in science for the better part of a century.
Healthcare policy-making impacts on healthcare
Evaluate how healthcare policy-making both directly and indirectly impacts the national and global healthcare delivery systems.
Identify the different types of organizations, services, and personnel and their interrelationships across the health care delivery system.
You work for a healthcare system that includes a community hospital, a long-term care facility, a hospice center, a home health agency, and a physician clinic. For each facility create an organizational chart with the departments and a list of types of staff in each department. List staff such as RN, Radiology tech, lab tech, coder, etc. Numbers of staff and specific titles are not needed.
Write a description of the interrelationships across the health care delivery system. For example, the hospital lab department may provide laboratory services for the other facilities and interact with the nurses and medical assistants at those facilities. Are there some departments or staff positions that would function better in a shared services environment, supporting all the different facilities?
Describe how healthcare policy-making impacts the healthcare delivery system. Discuss how you would evaluate the impact of new state, local, and federal policies as well as global impacts.
