An Online Article and Its Connection to Concepts in Health Care Management

Junior (College 3rd year) ・Healthcare&Medicine ・MLA ・2 Sources

This paper discusses an online article and its connection to concepts in health care management. The essence of the article is to make a call to action to overhaul the current health care management systems that are profit-driven in their approach in preference to a system that is more value-based (Porter and Lee). As the article provided insights into achieving that objective, several concepts it discusses are relevant to the topic of healthcare operations management.

Examples of how the article connects to these concepts are provided:

On quality management, the article claims that when values are embraced at senior board and management levels, healthcare organizations will be able to achieve the noble mission and vision statements that they have for long aspired to.

On the concept of productivity and performance, the article claims that adoption of a value-based operations management approach has boosted the effectiveness of healthcare provision. The article cites an example of Virginia Mason healthcare providers, who upon adopting the system found that provision of better care led to increased productivity through saving in the long haul.

With regards to operations research methods, not much was provided by the article. However, the paper made the use of policy modeling, a method in operations research to draft strategies for implementing the value agenda into the current healthcare management systems.

The article referenced operation metrics by asserting that the current healthcare management systems have failed in gauging and measuring the effectiveness of healthcare provision. It states that instead of the metrics measuring quality, they measured the level of compliance with established healthcare guidelines. It concluded that the current Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) used as a metric was thereby flawed(Langabeer, James and Helton 74).

First time when I placed an order with you, I just lacked time to do all the homework and it was a lot going on in my family. But today I’m doing it sometimes just for fun – I really enjoy communicating with your Customer Support members and just letting myself being a bit lazy

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
