I’m working on a health & medical writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
Reflect on what you consider healthcare to be. Briefly describe your definition of health based on your personal and/or professional experience. View Rebecca Onie’s TED Talk, What If Our Healthcare System Kept Us Healthy?, and address the following questions:
- Does your professional definition of healthcare change after watching this video? Why or why not?
- If traditional healthcare were to stray into the realm of socioeconomics as Rebecca Onie’s organization did, what effects on health delivery modelswould you anticipate? Explain.Use the journal as an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the final project requirements and case study. Journal activities in this course are private between you and your instructor. Only the instructor can view and comment on your assignments.RubricGuidelines for Submission: Your journal assignment should be 2 to 4 paragraphs in length. Submit assignment as a Word document with double spacing, 12- point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins.
- overview:The days of open-ended insurance plans no longer exist. Managed care insurance plans have replaced traditional insurance plans. The process of change increases the risks that a healthcare manager faces. The process of changes also raises several questions. Why do patients receive multiple bills after healthcare services are rendered? Why do patients have to pay for office visits if they already pay their insurance premiums every pay period? How do hospitals keep their doors open for decades—even over a century in many cases? Module Five will take a look behind the curtain to examine the intricate world of healthcare finance, and we will explore the answers to these complex questions.The goals and performance of for-profit organizations and not-for-profit organizations are similar. Healthcare managers need to understand the operating differences that face the organizations, such as why not-for-profit organizations are worthy of tax preferences and have the ability to seek donors and benefit the community. In this module, you will have the opportunity to explore these concepts and gain skills that are necessary in becoming an effective healthcare manager.Module Five assesses the different payment models in U.S. healthcare, provides and overview of for-profit compared to not-for-profit organizations, and takes a look at the impact and complexity of healthcare insurance. In Module Five, you will apply some of the concepts you have studied in the course thus far as you analyze your chosen public health issue for your second final project milestone. Module Six will examine how consumer behavior is influenced in the U.S. healthcare system and the impact of those behaviors on health economics.
