Health Care Model

Decent Essays
Introduction Health care reform has become a practical global issue, and particularly in developed countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States of America. It is obvious that the current systems are being evaluated. Although these countries have big influence and impact on most nations around the world, they’re still searching for better pathways to inclusive and comprehensive health care systems. Today many people are developing complicated medical conditions due to lack of coordination of care and lack of harmony among countries institutions. These countries have shifted away from the origin of care, which was preventive instead of allopathic medicine. Their focus is more on diseases instead of actual causes. For instance, …show more content…
Providers would be hired by contract and paid base on the number of patients they will see; general practitioners (GPs) and specialists work together. For instance, primary care physicians work together with the specialist to accomplish their goal. If people interpret that when specialists, GPs and patients health care associates rub shoulders there is improvement or efficiency, their assumptions might be misleading. Everywhere people do business; customer service is a must for many reasons including a lucrative motive. In this model, providers acknowledge that working together the quality outcome would be great, but providers would not be held accountable for the quality and cost of their patients care. They have complete control on care quality and cost. Is this an effective care model because specialists are rubbing shoulders with primary care physicians? The harmony among them and patients are to be praise because when PCP and Specialists work together, the care can be delivered in every layer of our society, but the most important question here is that are stakeholders providing holistic care (preventive and adequate care) or are they more focused on disease and cure. This model stakeholders including, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and others make profits. I am convinced that the PBC idea of this vertical and horizontal integration is to change the setting of health care one that is orientated to being a one stop clinic, where everyone can have access to urgent care without the long administrative procedures. However, this is a complex system because the UK is also a country where common health depends on their higher institutions decisions. To the extent, many people in London want to see equity in health care. They want an inclusive model and want an open system where everyone can be represented, the well off, middle, and the poor (Thomas et al, 2008). In this model, people want to see an integrated

    According to Dr. Carolyn Clancy, former Director of AHRQ, speaking at the 2005 American Medical Informatics Association on Health IT, “if (physicians) are going to avoid injuring patients—and succeed in giving them the right treatments—and spend dollars effectively—then (physicians) need the best information (they) can get about which treatments really work, and for whom. “In a word, (physicians) need the strongest foundation possible, of evidence and results in health care.” Not all applications of technology to healthcare problems save money or improve care. And, while younger care practitioners are open to and very comfortable with technology, it can easily lead to irrational exuberance around its adoption and use in situations that do not have clear ROI. If, at the critical point of decision-making, physicians can access comprehensive, current medical information for their patients,--including past comprehensive medical history, drug allergies, medications, laboratory results, and other relevant information—they can include EBM as a part of their disease management regimen. They can also confidentially conduct rapid research through specific…

    198) because speaking and informing the patient eliminates the need to have an existing treatment that may or may not work. Besides having to build a relationship with the patient, if doctors create a connection with other doctors a model is formed that exemplifies a standard of how treat a patients. Charles discusses how, “ Physicians have a responsibility to maintain moral integrity, intellectual honesty, and clinical competence” (p.198). Owning theses qualities pushes the doctor to do what is suitable for the patient. Being able to have theses qualities allows the doctor to honestly decide if a treatment, whether expensive or inexpensive, is actually the best option if there is not a guarantee if the treatment will succeed.…

    If it can work in these companies, it can work in healthcare and this is evident among many organizations who are already using it to transform the way they care for their patients and their staff in addition to reducing operational costs. I also feel that the insurance markets, pharmaceutical industry, and other powerful groups, would benefit from this system. As our healthcare system becomes more technologically centered and as curative medicine continues to increase these capital expenditures, in turn increasing costs, and profitability. By focusing on individual outcomes, the role of the environment causing illness will be obscured, thus the capitalist organization primary focus will be on production, which will be protected. This is the type of healthcare system we do not need, nor can we afford, but we see this already happening among larger healthcare organizations.…

Meanwhile, the employers and insurance companies who set their premiums based the healthcare market climate, are enthusiastically welcoming the adoption of technology in healthcare because of the potential value technology brings to their industry and to their customers.

    Fully understanding ones biases, stereotyping and prejudices is valuable across all industries and many job titles, however, in healthcare it is essential. Ethically the responsibility, quality of service and quality of care by healthcare professionals cannot be ruled by biases, prejudices and stereotypical beliefs. Every patient should be treated fairly, justly and receive the same level of care as other population segments. Additionally, it is the obligation of the healthcare provider to know how to communicate and treat that patient by understanding who the patient is within the healthcare provider’s ability and knowledge base. Everyone in the United States has the right to quality healthcare.…
