Assignment 09.1: Economic Credentialing

HA4070D – Regulatory Environment in Health Care

Assignment 09.1: Economic Credentialing

Directions

Complete the Problem beginning on page 463 of your text titled “Problem: Economic Credentialing” in a one to two page paper. Submit the completed assignment to your instructor. See page 369 for a general description of Marcus Welby Hospital.

You are the lawyer for Marcus Welby Community Hospital. The administrator approaches you about how to amend the bylaws so that the hospital can get rid of doctors who are costing the hospital too much money under Medicare and HMO insurance. The administrator is concerned about which removal actions can be defended in court and which bylaw amendments are politically feasible with physicians. Advise the administrator on each of these options:

• Amend the Hospital Bylaws to give the hospital board authority to remove doctors from the medical staff for any reason, regardless of the medical staff’s own recommendations, as long as the medical staff is first consulted.

• Amend the Medical Staff Bylaws to declare that an additional criterion for medical staff membership is to practice an efficient style of medicine that avoids wasting medical resources or providing unnecessary care.

• Forget about amending any bylaws. Instead, go after physicians who are economic losers based on their general medical competence and their unwillingness to be cooperative.

• Keep but supplant the entire medical staff structure by limiting who can practice in each department through one-year renewable contracts with the 200 best doctors out of the present 300.

Note that the assignment asks you to comment on each of the options, not just one. You may comment on one option being better than another for some reason, but be sure to comment on all the options. Support your advice with material from the text.

Short story interpretation W4

  • Minimum of 3 outside resources (Resources may include .edu or .org website and/or peer-reviewed journal articles from the TU library.)


Introduction


Foster has his comments about irony, and Lecture 1 discusses the “inevitable surprise.” With Connie, we see a teenage girl who meets a horrible end. The question is whether this is an inevitable surprise or whether her being victim of a psychopath has nothing to do with her habits as a character. Certainly no one should meet this end; that goes without saying. However, in regard to the character, questions arise about whether Connie’s attitude and social life lured a killer to her midst.


Activity Instructions


Write two to three pages on the following:

  • Write an essay on “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” citing quotes and passages from the story, Foster’s chapter on irony, and the lectures on wishes and deceit. To what extent did Connie’s wish to be older, cooler, and the object of male affection – in addition to decisions she makes throughout the story – leave her in a position where she would become Arnold Friend’s victim? Consider the following sub-question:

    • To what extent is Arnold Friend the dark side of granting Connie’s wish? Did he use deceit to prey upon her wish?

Write one to two pages on the following:

  • As part of your conclusion, research Oates’s inspiration for Arnold Friend or an actual criminal of a similar nature – one suggestion is Ted Bundy. Was Connie representative of the types of young women who ended up being victims?

Optional – write one to two pages on the following:

  • Rent the film

    Smooth Talk

    , the screen adaptation of Oates’s story. How has the film version added to or detracted from Oates’s written version?


Writing Requirements (APA format)

  • 5-7 pages (approx. 300 words per page), not including the reference page
  • 1-inch margins
  • Double spaced
  • 12-point Times New Roman font
  • Reference page (minimum of 3 outside resources)

Assignment 09.2: Negotiating Contract

HA4070D – Regulatory Environment in Health Care

Assignment 09.2: Negotiating Contract

Directions

Complete the assignment beginning page 492 titled “Exercise: Negotiating a Managed Care Contract” in a one to two page paper. Submit the assignment to your instructor. For a general description of Marcus Welby Hospital see page 369 of the text. The assignment below makes some adaptations to the text to clarify expectations for your paper.

One of Marcus Welby Hospital ‘s (MWH) competitors established a successful IPA-model HMO two years ago. Fearing loss of patients, MWH is forming the Marcus Welby Managed Care Network (the Network). The objective is to sign up a number of physicians, mainly in primary care but also in common specialties, and then to market this network to these two sources: () large employers who provide health insurance to their workers on a self-insured basis; and 2) large regional or national insurance companies (such as Blue Cross) who then offer the network to their customers.

The Network is approaching each physician group individually and asking them to sign up nonexclusively, leaving them free to sign up with other networks or HMOs. The contract excerpts on pages 493 and following contain some common sticking points in these negotiations. Read each pairing of contract options and determine what is at stake. Then, assume the position of lawyer/negotiator for either (a) the Network or (b) a physician group who wants to sign up but is concerned about the details.

• Write in your paper what you would say in a meeting with a representative from the other side and

• Describe how you would hammer out a deal, either adopting one version or the other, or making any changes you want.

• You must therefore be able to write clearly about what the concerns of the other side would be.

• Cite when appropriate.

Men experiencing depression suppress their emotions and express their distress by acting out, being impulsive, or engaging in substance abuse, how can this be changed?


There are many barriers that account for the disparities between men and women in seeking support for example financial cost, c

oncerns about confidentiality and trust as well as stigma, where they become embarrassed or ashamed. Difficulties in expressing self or self reliance as well.

What factors should a practitioner consider when assessing abnormal behaviour?

Abnormal behaviour is determined by considering the behaviour that violates the standards of society or any maladaptive and malfunction behaviours. A behaviour is seen as abnormal if it brings feelings of distress or discomfort to a person or it violates the norms of a society and causes inconvenience to others.

Examples of abnormal behaviour symptoms are having a temper, refusing to follow or adhere to rules and regulations or finding it difficult to handle frustration or being nervous. These range from anxiety disorders, dissociative disorders or disruptive behaviour disorders among others.
