  It is suggested that you review a few of the recommended articles below to glean any helpful information. Supply and demand analysis aids health care leaders in ascertaining the effects of changes in policy on service lines that impact a community’s health (e.g., whether to expand existing services or perhaps close services). Identify and evaluate publicly available tools that provide data and assist in formulating the basic shapes of demand and supply curves. Communicate and elaborate on the relevance of these economic indicators in terms of pricing.  Evaluate and comment on the social-cultural implications of value-based care.

  1. Block, D. (2013). Disruptive innovation: Contributing to a value-based health care system. Physician Executive, 39(5), 46-52. Retrieved from the EBSCOhost database.
    • The article discusses how hospitals can use disruptive innovation to improve health care quality, safety and outcomes by reducing the costs of healthcare delivery. The author says health care delivery in the United States is at least 20 years behind the development of other industries in the country.
  2. Ellis, R. P., & McGuire, T. G. (1993). Supply-side and demand-side cost sharing in health care. Journal of Economic Perspectives, 7(4), 135-151. Retrieved from the EBSCOhost database.
    • This article focuses on the supply side and demand side of cost sharing in health care.  Ellis & McQuire (1993, p.137) states that ”economists and others concerned with health care policy have debated the meaning of “demand” in health care. After all, as Arrow (1963) emphasized early on, the relationship between patients and their physicians (and other health care providers) involves agency, information, trust, and professionalism. A key unresolved issue in health policy is the magnitude of this provider-induced demand, and how it is determined.”
  3. Heroman, W. M., Davis, C. B., & Farmer, J. L. (2012). Demand forecasting and capacity management in primary care. Physician Executive, 38(1), 30-34. Retrieved from the EBSCOhost database.
    • The article examines how a practical approach to demand forecasting and capacity management helps primary care clinics run smoothly and efficiently. The authors state that a demand forecast determines the gap relative to the capacity of the practice to provide health care which can affect all the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) principles.
  4. Lillrank, P., Groop, P., & Malmström, T. J. (2010). Demand and supply-based operating modes: A framework for analyzing health care service production. Milbank Quarterly, 88(4), 595-615. doi:10.1111/j.1468-0009.2010.00613.x
    • “The structure of health organizations that provide services should reflect the possibilities of and constraints on production that arise from the market segments they serve. Organizational segmentation in health care is based on urgency and severity as well as disease type, bodily function, principal method, or population subgroup. The result is conflicting priorities, goals, and performance metrics. A managerial perspective is needed to identify activities with similar requirements for integration, coordination, and control” (Lillrank, Groop, & Malrnstrom, 2010).
  5. Yu, T., & Hong Yih, C. (2007). Is health care really a luxury? A demand and supply approach. Applied Economics, 39(9), 1127-1131. doi:10.1080/00036840500461857
    • Yu & Hong (2007) suggest that many studies have found strong and positive relationship between per capita income and health care expenditure. These studies usually adopt the assumptions that (1) the relationships among the variables are constant; and/or (2) the supply-side market for health care could be treated by using standard demand functions models. To take into account of the supply side of health care, we use the demand and supply approach with the co-integration model to re-examine this issue. 

Crisis Intervention

Crisis Intervention

 When faced with a difficult decision or set of decisions, as in teen pregnancy, creating a decision-making worksheet can be a valuable tool. This is similar to making a pros and cons list which you may already do. For this assignment, you will all be writing about teen pregnancy. Instructions: • In a paragraph or two, define the problem. • Consider the alternative ways to address the problem. Write about all that you can think of, but you are required to identify at least four. • Next, consider both the positive and negative consequences of each option. Discuss at least two positive and two negative consequences for each alternative. • Then discuss your values that most relevant to the decision. Some of these values may conflict with the others, or conflict with family, community, or cultural values. The point here is not to make judgments on which values are right or wrong but to focus on your individual values, how you define them, and how they impact your decision. • Write a list of other people who may be impacted by any of the alternatives/decisions. • Finally, based on all the above, what do you feel is the best decision for you in this scenario? • After identifying your best option, please discuss how it felt to complete this process. What was challenging? How does this help to provide insight into the decision-making process of people in crisis? Requirements: • Submit a Word document in APA format. • Maximum 2 pages in length, excluding the Title and Reference pages. • At least two resources, in addition to the course textbook.

I need a 25 sentence write-up on the following topic in 12 hours;

 Many state governments argue that making federal funds dependent on state cooperation with national goals is “federal blackmail.”  Discuss an example of this federal government practice and the reasons why the federal government resorts to using financial incentives (and disincentives) instead of simply passing laws requiring states to do what the federal government wants. 

 The discussion post should incorporate one content aspect from that assigned material and should contain;

– one website research reference, with a citation at the end of the post.

Critical Communication

Critical Communication

 You will develop a safety briefing on personal protective equipment (PPE). The briefing will be delivered to a group of first responders getting ready to take part in a full-scale exercise for a mass casualty incident. The briefing should be concise and factual in nature. The purpose of this brief is to disseminate information that could be used by the first responders to maintain their health and safety in this environment. The scope of the brief is first aid PPE for the first responder community. Note: PPE resources are provided in the Unit 4 assignment link. Review these resources to familiarize yourself with the use of PPE by first responders in first aid situations.
