Impact to Healthcare organizations - These increases in cost raise questions of health care expenses at the hospital level. As higher profits are sought, the cost will become unstable for all, thus causing many to postpone going to the doctor. However, there are many complicated problems associated with our healthcare system. We will focus on main issues that can correct many related problems within the current structure. More importantly, we need to find ways to ensure all Americans have access to health care; and we need to hone in on how we can get the best value for the $2 trillion dollars we spend annually on healthcare.
I first would look and see the age ranges of each employee and see what compensation they need to be lifestyle depends. I would gather data on each employee so I can see what compensation would benefit them the best. If I have a lot of employees with children, maybe one of the compensation benefits would be child care or if I have a lot of employees almost about to retire maybe I would need a retirement package or elder care. Also, if I have a lot of employees in school maybe a tuition program. Treating people right is good for the hospital since happy employees are better employees. I also want to be fair as well. I would want to treat my employees the way I would want to be treated. I know how important health care is so I would defiantly have a plan that would fit people needs. I would also provide some way for so employees would not
The National Healthcare Employee Union (NHEU) asserts that the hospital 's retention and recruiting efforts concerning nurse staffing is deficient. This deficiency has led to diminished patient care and more nurses quitting because of the fatigue of being overworked due to staffing shortages.
Analyze the technology necessary to meet the federal mandated requirements that will affect the merged healthcare organizations in the given scenario.
It's no secret that Health Maintenance Organizations, known as HMO's, have made healthcare affordable for many Americans, but at what risks? Most employers offer some type of health care plan that is an HMO. Let's face it, given the choice among insurance coverage through your employer, in which he pays half the costs, or acquiring private insurance coverage outside your employer, most Americans choose to go with employer-provided HMO's. Why then, has there been so much controversy with HMO's?
California Association of Health Plans (CAHP) represents statewide trade association with 46 full-service healthcare plans, which provide coverage to millions of California residents.

All health plans through Covered California are members of CAHP. Their goal is to serve their members by providing and sustaining opportunities that allow them to grow and maintain viability as organizations. An organization like Kaiser Permanente, Anthem Blue Cross, Delta Dental, Bayer Healthcare LLC and Crowell & Moring are members of CAHP.
If I could do one thing to alter the healthcare system in our country, it will be to make available more free health centers with suited health professional and doctors to take care of the middle and lower class. Without insurance or Medicaid, it’s almost impossible to get quality healthcare, and by opening avenues where people can visit a PCP and get checkups at an affordable price will be very helpful
There are millions of healthcare organizations all throughout our country. Some of these organizations have a significantly greater financial background than others, but that depends on the size, location, and demand of the patient population. The organization that is going to be discussed is Yale New Haven, which is a large hospital in southeast Connecticut. Their most recent data dates back to the fiscal year of 2014 when the hospital saw a total of 1.2 million patients, bringing in revenue close to 3.5 billion dollars. In fact, Yale New Haven has made close to a billion dollars more in revenue compared to the year of 2012. Without the help of the 6,000 medical personnel and the 20,000 members of the staff, this large hospital would never be as successful as it is today (Yale New Haven Health, n.d.). As one can see, the hospital is growing each and every year supplying the overall demand of the patient population.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, in the beginning of 2007, funded Health Workforce Solutions LLC (HWS) in their project to create new innovative care models that can establish proficient and successful ways to deliver health care (Joynt & Kimball, 2008, January). In total, HWS selected 24 models of the original 60 care delivery models to conduct in-depth research. Throughout the years, many institutions have incorporated these different models, either independently or in combination. Although all models met the criteria of HWS, and are beneficial in their own way, the Unit-Based Care Manager model will be the subject of this paper. The Unit-Based Care Manager model, "is a new role created for Clinical Nurse Leaders (CNL 's), where a hospital unit 's care team and delivery is redesigned to leverage the CNL 's knowledge, experience, and functionality" (Joynt & Kimball, 2008, January). In fact, one example of the benefits of implying this model is hand hygiene compliance. Results show from CNL Role Immersions Practicum Experiences, that improvement went from 30% to over 70% with just this implementation ( Reid & Dennison, 2011, September 30).
Currently, Mark and Shelby have basic health insurance for the both of them. Mark may have the HMO health plan where they have to select their primary care physician and the premium is a descent rate. The couple is young so they would use the plan for annual check-ups for the most part but they will make sure their plan cover maternity. In the further they would need to add their children and change the plan to family coverage. Babies need to go to the doctor’s office all the time for cold, shots, and other minor illness. I think the disability income insurance they select need to be a plan that will begin after 30-days of loss of income due to an accident or illness. This will allow Mark and Shelby to continue paying their bills in the event
HMO penetration is reflected by each state and are affected by an amount of factors, including employer offerings such as employee incentives which mix together of commercial and Medicare and Medicaid enrollees. HMO penetration figures show enrollment as a percentage of the total population for each state. Here in the United States largest markets vs. smaller markets divide the penetration. HMO Penetration continues to grow in larger markets, but grows more rapidly in smaller markets. The average HMO penetration here in the U.S. is currently 23.5%. Ranging from Alaska being the lowest of HMO members at 0.1% to Hawaii being at the top of the list at 55.1%. Here in NJ our HMO penetration is at 23.3%, which is near average.
According to Dale Carnegie (2011), every individual has an innate need to feel important (Carnegie, 2011) . Individuals who feel important feel good about themselves. One way to achieve this is a merger process is for nursing leaders to recognize and acknowledge every employee’s excellent performance and positive contribution . Additionally, nursing leaders must make employees feel that they are a part of an organization that shares the same mission, vision and values. This is achieved by giving each employee a sense of purpose while acknowledging their important role in the company operations. This process gives them some sense of control amid uncertainty of the merger. This connection serves as a strong source of motivation
Blue Shield is a private insurance broker in California and they were billed four hundred and eight dollars by Torrance Memorial Medical Center and apart from the insurance claim the patient had to pay nearly three hundred dollars for their medical expense. The patient enquired about this expense to the insurer and they said that the cost for a simple blood test was charged around eighty dollars, the patient cross verified the information with the billing department of the hospital and was informed that they would have paid less if they had no insurance plan. But the actual cost for a simple blood test was only around fifteen dollars.
A number of human resources management are obstinate to modify their business plans due to rapid change in the health care organization. Organizations become comfortable with their business plans because they are afraid of taking risks of losing their businesses to competitors. Remaining competitive is the key aspect of a company; it drives consumers from competitors to come to the company and utilize their services. Kalyani & Sahoo (2011) stated that a business plan is created to institute goals, morals, ethics, and values. Various organizations reject to change these qualities since it is a unique definition of what their company stands for. In addition to goals, morals, ethics, and values, a business plan consists of the code of conduct.
