Examine health care delivery in
the United States.
In Module 1 we studied the economic
realities that may ultimately impact the healthcare industry. However despite
the impending bursting of the bubble, we must still implement Obamacare (Module 1 writing and position BHS450_M1_SLP_Healthcare_Delivery_System_Lott, L.docx). One of
the important aspects of the new law is the connecting the evaluation standard
of quality to reimbursement. This is a departure for our industry and might
have a significant impact on how we do business. Many experts argue that
quality of care is subjective but is ultimately based upon those providing the
care. This will be the topic of Module 2's SLP. Please read the article by
Zallman, Ma, Xiao, and Lasser entitled "Quality of US Primary Care
Delivered by Resident and Staff Physicians" and respond to the following
- Briefly summarize the issue being addressed as found in
the "Background section."
- Identify and discuss the five categories of quality
- Discuss what the researchers found when they analyzed
the "Performance on Quality Indicators." Where you surprised by
- Why are there differences in the quality of outpatient
care provided by resident and staff physicians? What are some possible
strategies an organization can implement to remedy this problem?
