Imagine that a hospital in the United States has recruited a billing specialist who reports to the manager of the billing department. The responsibility of the billing specialist is to ensure compliance with billing policies and procedures. The manager has begun an audit of the department’s adherence to policies and procedures. The audit reveals that the recently recruited billing specialist is not following the standard billing guidelines. In several patient bills, the manager observes billing errors and noncompliance with the hospital’s standard process. After investigation, the manager determines that it is fraudulent billing.

In your initial post, include the following:

  • Identify the legal and compliance implications of the billing specialist’s actions.
  • Describe how you believe the manager and hospital should respond to this issue.
  • Describe the measures the hospital should take to prevent the recurrence of this issue.

discuss how report writing impacts the success of a police officer.  In a survey of Ohio Police Chiefs, over 90% of the participants agreed that writing skills affected the prosecution of cases, impacted the supervisor’s perception of them as a law enforcement officer, influenced the decision to appoint officers for special assignments, and impacted their promotion within the department.

Do you agree with the survey, why or why not?  In what other ways could bad report writing affect an officer’s success?

Health policy project 2

Health policy project 2

Overview

Imagine that you are a legislative consultant hired to assess the influence of stakeholders and interest groups on a health policy issue. Your supervisor has asked that you present your assessment findings to the senior leadership of your organization to inform their decisions on how best to approach their intended organization-wide position statement regarding this issue.

As a first step, you will select one of three health policy issues from the Project Two Health Policy Issue Scenarios document. As part of the background study, you will conduct preliminary research about the selected issue and analyze the impact of the selected issue on various stakeholders. This background study and assessment of the selected issue will serve as a foundation for your Project Two final presentation. In this Project Two Preparation assignment, you will essentially analyze the selected health policy issue and describe how it influences the decision-making process in healthcare.

Your research in this Project Two Preparation will be specific to the nonfinancial impact of the selected policy on various stakeholders. In your second Project Two Preparation, which is due in Module Seven, you will explore the financial implications of the selected issues. Together, both of these Project Two Preparation assignments will prepare you for the Project Two submission due in Module Nine.

Prompt

Create a research report summarizing your assessment findings on your chosen health policy issue. This research report will serve as a support document in the Project Two final submission.

You must cite at least three sources to support your claims. You may cite no more than one source from the module resources; all other resources must come from your own research.
