HP609 Health Policy, Politics, and Perspectives
Week 6 Discussion
New Health Systems: Aligning Money, Risk, Providers, and Politics
In 500-750 words, post in your assigned group your response to the prompt. In your initial post, refer at least one article related to your entry from a reputable newspaper (can be online) or other media source that is current within one month and post the link. You must have at least two references in your initial posting, and the media source can be one of the two. An easy way to find current articles on health policy is through Kaiser Health News.
Briefly describe the workforce and system challenges of care coordination and team-based care across the continuum (quality and cost) and identify the two best tactics that clinically integrated networks can use to achieve significant quality improvement.
Aligning healthcare spending more appropriately across the continuum presents financial and political challenges. Propose a plan to spend more on prevention and less on end-of-life care, and address the political challenges your plan will face.
Make sure that your initial post is in your group thread and that your replies are to two of your classmates’ posts in the other group.
This is not a group project, requiring you to post as a group. Students are grouped by topic only and should post an initial entry on your assigned topic as an individual.
