Effects of Health Care Legislation Presentation
How has it or will it affect health care? The purpose of managed care is for administration to have access, control, and quality over health care services within a particular population of enrollees that are covered (University of Washington, 1998). The method of managed care involves a group of skills which persuades the clinical behavior of patients and or providers, done by bringing together the delivery and payment of health care. By using managed care, healthcare administrators are able to develop ways to effectively run healthcare systems by allocating money for departments that are in dire need of funds. Also by implementing measurements that monitor employees work habits, such as how often a nurse should check on patients, how many times a day medications are given, how often bedding is changed, updating charts, and etc. Changing the quality of care, based on customer service, the collaboration of other staff employees, and improved work ethics among staff all has and will continue to affect healthcare.
Managed care organizations and doctors use managed care contracts to create the broadest applications possible within the healthcare industry (AMA, 2005). Physician networks, professional corporations, group practices, and individual doctors are the ones who normally enter such contracts. When dealing with managed care contracts the provision of enrollees of medical services are arranged through directly administering or offering of one or more health benefit products or plans within an organization (AMA, 2005). There is also the desire to interlock one or more contracts with doctors who are susceptible to…...

Rising Prices of Health Care and Its Effects

...Prices of Health Care and Its Effects Medical costs in America are the highest compared to every other country. Many people explain that our costs are higher just because our expensive costs, on going to the doctor more often, or that wet get sicker more. In fact, the opposite is true. The reason that medical costs are higher is because of the prices. Since the prices are higher we as Americans pay more, it’s that simple. When trying to explain the high cost of medical care many people though it was because we use medical services more often as Americans. Research shows that “we spend less time in hospitals than Germans and see doctors less often than Canadians.” (Klein) This is odd, because even though the above is true our medical costs are almost double that of Germany and Canada. We pay more and get less out of medical care. “The United States spends more on health care than any of the other OECD countries spend, without providing more services than the other countries do” (Klein). This just shows that our prices for some reason are just higher than they are in other countries. To understand why this is we must understand why prices in other countries are lower. “In 2009, Americans spent $7,960 per person on health care. Our neighbors in Canada spent $4,808. The Germans spent $4,218. The French, $3,978” (Klein). The reason behind the lower prices in the above countries is because their countries governments negotiate more aggressively with health care providers......

Heath Care Policy Legislation Stage

...just the opposite. What sense does it make — for example — to negotiate e-commerce rules bilaterally? Who would be interested in disciplining agricultural subsidies in a regional agreement but not globally? How can bilateral deals — even dozens of them — come close to matching the economic impact of agreeing to global free trade among 146 countries? Bilateral and regional deals can sometimes be a complement to the multilateral system, but they can never be a substitute. There is a bigger danger. By treating some countries preferentially, bilateral and regional deals exclude others — fragmenting global trade and distorting the world economy. Instead of liberalizing trade — and widening growth — they carve it up. Worse, they have a domino effect: bilateral deals inevitably beget more bilateral deals, as countries left outside are forced to seek their own preferential arrangements, or risk further marginalization. This is precisely what we see happening today. There are already over two hundred bilateral and regional agreements in existence, and each month we hear of a new or expanded deal. There is a basic contradiction in the assumption that bilateral approaches serve to strengthen the multilateral, rules-based system. Even when intended to spur free trade, they can ultimately risk undermining it. This is in no one's interest, least of all the United States. America led in the creation of the multilateral system after 1945 precisely to avoid a return to hostile blocs — blocs......

The Effect of the Economy on Animal Care

...In today's society, America, along with most of the world, is facing many struggles with the economy. This includes unemployment, cut wages, raises in taxes, etc. This leaves the average American without enough money to support them selves. So what does that mean for pets and animal care? A pet is something a person has to take care of. Most of the time an individual must clean, feed and wash the pet they have. This means that because of the bad economy, vet costs are increasing; pets are being neglected and are also being abandoned. In the United States, about 63% of American families own a pet. Even if money is tight, it is immoral to let animals suffer the negative consequences of a falling economy. Why are pets necessary for one’s life? First off pets can improve someone’s mood. When something is giving constant love, it is unlikely to put you in a bad mood and even if you’re in a bad mood already they’ll put you in a better one! Pets are also stress relievers and make you feel less lonely. According to an article about health benefits of pets, “A recent study found that men with AIDS were less likely to suffer from depression if they owned a pet.” A person who lives for something else is much happier than if they were just living for themselves! A few weeks ago I lost my cat because someone took him and left him on the side of a road 15 minutes away from where I lived. He got hit by a car and had broken his leg. The total bill to release my cat from the animal......

Effects of Day Care

...THE EFFECTS OF DAY CARE ON THE EMOTIONAL, SOCIAL AND COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT OF CHILDREN INTRODUCTION Day care is a temporary place where a child is taken care of during the day. It’s usually a care provided not by a family member or someone well known by the child and take place outside the home. This includes child-minding and in a day nursery. Leaving the child at a child-minder is usually seen as preferable form of day care for many parents because the care the child receives is more likely to be similar to the care he or she would receive at home. The other more commonly used is the day nursery and they can be found variety of locations. In this essay the writer will cover the effects of day care on three stages of development which are emotional, social and cognitive development of children. The overall argument will be to find the positive and negative evidence of day care for children. From the current research available and to create a better understanding as to how day care influences children and impacts their development. NAGATIVE EFFECTS OF DAY CARE ON EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT The emotional development of a child is when they have developed close attachments with parents. Shaffer (2005) described emotional attachments as infants normally form affection ties to their close companions during the first year of life. Parent’s initial emotional bonding with their infants builds in strength as they gear their behaviour to the infant’s social signals and......

The Effects of Nonparental Child Care

...The Effects of Nonparental Child Care Eric Mone SOC312 Professor Martha McFarland March 26, 2012 The biggest decision you can ever make as a working parent, the type of child care you will select for your child. The decision on whether to choose a child-care center, family day-care home, or in your own home with a nanny can be a stressful decision. Nonparental care has been a topic of debate that has been around for years. The debate can come from how the child is effected, socially, cognitively, psychological and emotionally, will there be a positive impact or will there be a negative impact on the child's life. There are three different types of childcare. Child-Care center, Family Day-Care Homes, and In-Home care takers which is more commonly known as a nanny. The home may be the child's own home, a relative's (grandparent, aunt, etc.)home, or the home of an unrelated person such as a babysitter or nanny. Home care can include the simultaneous care of many children from many families. Home care is referred to as family date care even though the family may not be the child's own family. A home child care center features one care provider who is always with your child. She might have an assistant, but for the most part the provider is the same day after day. This builds a routine for your child, making the day care process easier on everyone. In a center, the providers in a particular room change frequently, which can lead to inconsistency in......

Health Care Reform and the Resulting Effects

...Health Care Reform and the Resulting Effects Kristen Opp Benedictine University Health Care Reform and the Resulting Effects Health Care reform, the expansion of healthcare coverage to the uninsured and unemployed, is under speculation regarding its long term economic impact. Although it will get more individuals covered with insurance it will come at a cost to small businesses and tax payers. These changes may be what most consider improvements but we must look at the long term affects on our healthcare system, for example it will also result in “$500 billion in Medicare cuts over the next decade” (Jackson & Nolen, March 21, 2010). Speculation is that healthcare reform is a band aid fixing existing problems and lowering the deficit but could be setting future Medicare plan participants up for hardship. The short term positive effects include free preventative care under Medicare, help for early retirees, end of rescissions and discrimination for pre existing conditions, and bans life time limits on coverage to name a few according to David Hancock in a recent CBSNEWS article (2010). Another simple speculation is that hospitals will benefit due to increased insurance coverage which will mean more patients through the door and less abandoned bad dead accumulated by uninsured patients unable to pay. Research on long term affects has not been quite as positive or conclusive. Most likely as a result of the new tax on unearned income (investments) there will be a......

Effects of Technology on Health Care

...Health care is an information-intensive service. Automation and the use of technology provide an effective and efficient means to manage the large volumes of data and information with knowledge and wisdom (Englebardt & Nelson, 2002). With access to patient information electronically patient care has improved. Health care workers can retrieve information faster, thus reducing the risk of medication errors such as overmedicating, drug-to-drug interaction, or missed drug allergies. Another benefit of electronic documentation is legible documentation from physicians. The nurses no longer need to huddle to interpret written orders by physicians. Electronic documentation provides better storage of medical records and reduces the use of paper, thus improving the ecosystem. Electronic charting allows multiple health care workers to document, access, or enter orders on the patient at the same time. Unlike the times of old when paper charting existed, only one person could have access to the medical document. A look back at the advancement of modern medicine over the past 20 years is breathtaking. Who could have foreseen the introduction of computerized axial tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, laparoscopic surgery with fiber optics, Teflon arterial graphs, or the numerous pharmaceutical treatments for previously incurable diseases (Chaiken, 1994)? Technology creates more proficient and effective health care delivery system through reducing time and effort required by health......

Effect of Early Colonial Legislation

...The Effect of Early Colonial Legislation The early settlers in the New World were subject to many different laws and acts of legislation passed by the British government. Most of which were meant to help the King and England rather than support the colonies ability to be a free and self-governing people. Some of the legislation like the Stamp Act was passed to help England recoup its losses from the French Indian War. Although some like the Coercive Act contained a series of legislative tactics meant to punish colonists for going against or acting against the King or the mother land. Both of these acts were purposeful and against the colonists and only for the benefit of England. The French and Indian War caused the British government to go into a tremendous amount of debt. This debt had to be recovered somehow. So parliament decided that they would create a tax on the colonies to help recover some of the money lost. The Stamp Act was the British Parliaments attempt to take governmental authority over the colonies. The Stamp Act created a tax or duty on different types of documents printed on paper including “… legal documents, business papers, licenses, pamphlets, newspapers, almanacs, printed sermons, playing cards, and dice” (Reich, 2011 Ch. 25 Para 17). For instance the act stated that any piece of parchment that was “…engrossed, written, or printed, any declaration, plea, replication, rejoinder, demurrer or other pleading, or any copy thereof; in any court of law......

The Effect of Child Care on Emotional Development

...The Effect of Child Care on Emotional Development In today’s society, money revolves around everything and parents strive to give their children better lives. Many parents are returning to the workforce following the birth of their child and leaving them in the care of non-family members. A great increase of enrollment in full day childcare for Singaporean children has been observed, from 65,650 enrolled in 2013 to 78,555 in 2014. It has been contended that high quality childcare would give children advancement in cognitive development (NICHD 2006). However, a parent remaining home before the school years ensures normal development of their child in those aspects. In the attachment theory, Bowlby (1969) found that early relationships with primary caregivers are most influential and lead to secure relationships, raising confidence in environmental exploration. From nine months of age, babies begin observing and correlating with their caregiver’s emotions and actions before they respond (Astington & Barriault, 2001). When a positive response from their caregiver’s to a situation is observed, the child will embrace it as well. Children begin to pick up on perception of their surroundings and efficiency of exploration can be achieved through a continuous and encouraging relationship between parent and child which forms the bond that cannot be found in day cares due to inconsistency in caregivers and shared attention with other children. Piaget’s (1929) cognitive......

Outline One Key Research Into the Effects of Day Care

...In 1988, Vandell et al researched into the long term impact of day care experiences of varying quality. Are the effects of poor quality day care short lived, or do they have long term impacts on a child’s development? They researched into these questions, using a longitudinal research. An observational method was used with a number of 4 years old at different day care centres and again when the children were 8 years old during play sessions. The data gathered for behaviour at 4 years of age were part of a previous study by Vandell and Powers in 1983. The Observation at 4 years consisted of a total of 20 children, half male and half female. They were observed in a random order during a free play session at their day care centres for 20 second intervals for 16 minutes. There were three behavioural categorises used in the observations, positive/negative interaction with peers, positive/negative interaction with adults and solitary play and unoccupied behaviour. In the observation at the age of 8 the children were videotaped through one-wag glass for 45 minutes whilst taking part in controlled play with three other children. The play was designed by the researchers to encouraged social behaviour. Whilst the children were playing, the mothers completed a survey from the researchers regarding family circumstances and the child’s day care history. For each child a behavioural checklist was completed using three categories. The first category is friendly interactions meaning is......

M2 H&S Care Legislations and Laws

...disabilities. This act gives rights to disabled people in many areas such as employment, education, access to merchandise and many more. The legislation requires public representatives to promote equality of opportunity for people with disabilities. It also allows the government to set minimum standards so that people with disabilities can use public transport easily. The Residents rights define discrimination in a number of ways and outlines four specific types of discrimination: direct discrimination, failure to make reasonable adjustments, disability-related discrimination and victimisation. The Residents rights prevents anyone from the risk of harm or discrimination over them being disabled. For example, if there is a disabled elderly person in the care home then they would need to be given special treatment and should be tended to more than some of the other residents. The care home that they are staying in their staff should be checked on regularly because the staff could be violently assaulting residents and not be caught so regular checks should be done to prevent this. The Residents rights stops anyone from being mistreated or thought of as being different or lower in status etc. so they should be thought of as being able to things for themselves but only to an extent. For example, if someone receives domiciliary care and the nurse is changing the child (between age 10-15) and the child is feeling like he is being treated like a baby and is being made to......

How Two Examples of Legislation Have Influenced Social Care Provision

...There are many different types of legislation have influenced social care provision. This includes The Care Standards Act (2000) and The Children Act 1989 and 2004. The Care Standards Act (2000) provides for the administration of a variety of care institutions, including children's homes, independent hospitals, nursing homes and residential care homes. The Act was passed to regulate and to reduce unfairness and inequality in different social care services. The main purpose of the Act is to reform the regulatory system for care services. There are policies and procedures within the act which require CRB checks to take place. It attempts to take control of the whole concept of care, in all its forms, and to regulate those who provide it virtually in all settings and circumstances. Children Act 2004 is a wide ranging act covering many areas such as parental responsibility and child protection. This act states that children's welfare is paramount. It also made it clear that opinions from children and young people should be taken into account when decisions about their future are being made. It requires local authorities to make arrangements to promote cooperation between the authority, each of the authority's relevant partners and such other persons or bodies working with children in the local authority's area as the authority considers appropriate. The arrangements are to be made with a view to improving the wellbeing of all children in the authority's area, which......

Describe how the legislation and code of practice or charter promotes diversity in the setting you have chosen. Asses how affective the legislation and code of practice or charter are in promoting diversity with the setting you have chosen. The legislation I have selected is the Equality Act 2010 and the code of practice I looked into was for social workers. The Equality Act 2010 protects nine characteristics which are age, race, sex, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marriage or civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity. All nine characteristics promote diversity The legislation equality act 2010 is supported everywhere, especially in a health or social care setting such as hospitals, care homes and health centres. The protected characteristics help promote diversity as these characteristics are for everyone. The quality act 2010 helps every person’s needs. The code of practice for social workers makes sure that workers are aware of what is expected of them and that service users recognise the standards that are expected from the care workers. As a social care worker, it’s significant to protect the rights and support the interests of the service users and carers. Those people who use services can work out the minimum amount of choice and control- even if they are receiving their individual care and treatments, this will......

Politics, Legislation, and Implications to Patient Care

...Politics, Legislation, and Implications to Patient Care Abstract There are constant changes to laws and legislation regarding patient care and safety. The purpose of this report is to inform the reader of recent and upcoming changes to legislation that may affect nursing care of patients. Research by L. Aiken, et al. and A. Tourangeau, support the need for higher education of registered nurses. Their research proves that patient outcomes are improved when registered nurses carry a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Research conducted by J. Needleman, et al., concluded that reducing the nurse-patient ratio resulted in the patient being at less risk for developing hospital-acquired illnesses as well as a reduced risk of inpatient mortality. The reader will also be informed about the Joint Commission’s protocol for reducing the occurrence of wrong-patient, wrong-site, and wrong-procedure during surgical procedures. Politics, Legislation, and Implications to Patient Care As the American population ages, healthcare and its resources are in greater demand. As the demand for healthcare increases, the topic of patient safety has become increasingly important. Laws and legislation regarding patient care are changing almost constantly to maintain patient safety while still providing comprehensive patient care. This report will focus on informing the reader of recent and upcoming legislation regarding patient care, what has brought those changes about, and the effects it......
