Health in the World Is Complex

Introduction
In this assignment on health care in regards to the health care system in the United States is quite complex any everybody would understand that. If I was a health care administrative professional, several factors influence the industry. Health care is said to be, “the prevention, treatment, and management of illness and the preservation of mental and physical well-being through the services offered by the medical and allied health professions.”
The U.S health care system has evolved so much over the last few decades and more changes are geared towards the health care system. Our health care system is not perfect but there some forces that have affected the development on the health care system in the U.S. The U.S health care system can be looked at two ways when it comes to the development of its affect on the U.S as being flawed and useful. When you think of the U.S health care system, you think of the impact as well as the forces that have affected the development of the health care system in the United States.
Assessing Regulations
While assessing and viewing the video I was quite surprised that U.S. influences claims and facts assessed in the video are interesting. The first slide in the video presentation states that sixty billion of U.S. pharma patent revenue was set to expire in 2012. Also the video outlined that 75% are specialty medications and then there was decline starting in 1996 all the way down to the year 2000 and then from the year 200 until 2005 and then from 2005 to 2010 it shows a general decline in FDA drug approvals. Branded drugs account for only one in four pills and now a day’s its said to be that generic drugs are the best drug and cost less in the U.S market.
My overall hypothesis on how the regulations in the U.S. affect the country and have the biggest opportunity that will occur…...

Health Plan for World Trade Center Attacks (911)

...Health Plan for World Trade Center Attacks (911) Sandra Morgan June 21, 2011 Epidemiology and Risk Management Health Plan for World Trade Center Attacks (911) I. INTRODUCTION: On September 11, 2001, one of the worst man made disasters occurred in US history. “Terrorists crashed two hijacked planes into The World Trade Centers. In less than two hours, the towers collapsed and nearly 2,800 people died, including 343 firefighters, 23 police officers, 37 Port Authority police officers, and more than 2,200 civilians” (NYC Government, 2011). Most of Lower Manhattan residents were exposed to all kinds of dust, particulates, and other environmental contaminants. Moreover, people witnessed some of the most deeply traumatic events they had ever seen. Families watched as their entire lives and livelihoods disappeared. While individuals tried to make sense of what was taking place, rescue workers, contractors, and many others began the massive undertaking of rescuing people trapped under the rubble. In late September the rescue turned from rescue to recovery. Over the next 10 months many City, State, and federal agencies participated in the cleanup of Ground Zero. Immediately after the collapse of the towers there were concerns about the consequences for health and mental issues. Therefore, the development of a health plan was necessary. This plan had to include the collection of proper data and an explanation for......

Health Care Management Errors in a Post Modern/Complex Adaptive System

...Health Care Management Errors in a Post Modern/Complex Adaptive System MHA 601 Health Care Management Errors in a Post Modern/Complex Adaptive System Post modernistic/complex adaptive systems allow a leader a broader spectrum in which to examine a potential problem. In the past, problems in healthcare were presented and leaders used an absolute to correct the problem and move forward. Health care problems today are more complex and require a manager to think in terms bigger than just an absolute solution. “For the postmodernist, all models are only partial descriptions of reality, and scientific models are shaped not only by traditional scientific processes, but also by political, social, and personal interest,” (Johnson, 2009, p. 65). The following summaries of management errors will be examined as if management were that of a post modern/complex adaptive system. Scenario 1: A manager fails to account for employees’ ability to learn safe practices by experimenting on their own to increase productivity and jeopardize current standards put in place. This scenario is an error because the manager failed to see the inevitability of change. As resources become scarcer, employees are going to search for ways to increase their productivity as they feel more pressure to produce. A manger with a post modernist perspective would act as a change agent and anticipate the need for increased productivity and would implement the changes necessary prior to their staff......

Our World and Health Car Delivery in the Future

...| Our World and Health Care Delivery In The Future | | | LaTisha M. Green | HCA/24011/04/2012Vinod Sharma | | Demographics and disease trends have a big influence on health care and how it is going to be delivered now and in the future as well. The world around us is forever changing and we need to make sure that we are changing and evolving with it as well. In this paper we are going to discuss two things that are making us look at how health care is going to have to be delivered in order to take care of the aging and how to treat obesity as well. The objective of this paper is to bring to light some of the demographic changes and disease trends that have already happened and that is going to happen in the near future. These changes and future trends will reshape the nation in the years and decades to come. Demographics of Aging In the United States there are almost 40 million people aged 65 +. That is almost 13% of the population and by 2030 there will be more than 72 million older people. That will make up about l9% of the world population. That is just like saying that someone turns 50 every 8 seconds. Also each year more than 3.5 million boomers turn 55 and by the year 2012 America’s 50 and older population will reach an all-time high of 100 million people.

The Inner World of a Future Mental Health Counselor

...1 The Inner World of a Future Mental Health Counselor 2 Welcome, you are about to embark on a journey into my inner world. Along the way, you will discover the following: (1) what in my background helps me to think through and identify what is right and wrong, as well as what constitutes ethical professional behavior; (2) my ethical decision-making style. My unique style of ethical decision making which reflects my early and ongoing experiences with moral values and issues which has been influenced and shaped by my parents, relatives, peers and valued adults in my life such as teachers and mentors; (3) individuals that have most impressed me and serves as a role model for me; (4) and my current developmental status and how it has and will likely impact my work as a counselor. I therefore invite you to dive into my world and may your life never be the same. Growing up in a Christian environment, I was raised to have my “…perceptive powers trained to distinguish both right and wrong.” (Hebrews 5:14) In short, I received moral values made up of strongly held beliefs based on the Bible, along with a conduct that conforms to those beliefs. Early on, as an adolescent, I began to take a close look at the Holy Scriptures and have come to appreciate that Bible’s counsel is based on...

Response to John Thackera's, “Introduction, ” in the Bubble: Designing in a Complex World

...attitude towards our perception of technology and it’s role in a rapidly changing world. Based on his perception of the current situation, he sets forth a manifesto for change that would re-humanise the structure of technology through design. Although he writes with the best of his intentions and we empathise with many of his assertions, the structure of his argument is often non-sequential and illogical. For example, when Thackera discusses the fact that designers are not to blame for the state that the earth is in, he declares that “no designer that I have ever met set out to wreck the planet.” He misses the opportunity to explore the financial motivations (which are often stronger that any altruistic notion we might have) that drive not only the designer but the businesses to which designers are related. He repeatedly views technology through the lens of design and fails to mention the important relationships between business, economy and technology. We would further argue, that the idea of asserting blame on individual designers is spurious. The reason our world (especially in the west) looks the way it does when this introduction was written, is less to do with individual moral positioning and more about a dominating capitalistic structure. This is something that he appears to confront, although without directly naming it, when he suggests the solutions for “a less-stuff-more-people world”. He gives us list of socially orientated systems that, in direct opposition to......

It Is Easier to Maintain Health in the Modern World Than in the Past.

...Health is important to human beings, since only by keeping a healthy body can people do thing whatever they want. As the technology is progressing, the awareness of people, and the occurrences of more and more organic foods, I strongly believe that it is easier to maintain health in the modern world than in the past. First of all, with the development of technology has advanced, more and more food supplements sold in the market, such as vitamin A, C, E or omega 3, 5, 7…etc. Hence, it is easier to complement the nutrition in the body. Take me for instance. I always eat vitamin C and fish oil every day in case that I do not obtain enough nutrition from foods. Moreover, the medical equipment is much better than the old times. Even if people have injuries or infect serious disease in the modern world, body can be cured by taking the medicine or using the medical equipment. Hence, it is better to say that maintaining health is easier now than the past. Secondly, the occurrences of organic foods made human beings more easily to keep a healthy body. For instance, my neighbor Jean is the wholesaler of organic food. She often gives my family a lot of vegetables, fruits, and eggs that are planted or fed on without using pesticides. Besides, there are many super markets that only sold organic foods instead, such as Trader Joe’s. Therefore, it is easy to maintain health, for organic foods are simple to acquire everywhere. Finally, it is rather to say that people are......

Living in a World of Warcraft: the Complex Sociality of Virtual Worlds

...Living in a World Of Warcraft: The Complex Sociality of Virtual Worlds Through the convergence of gaming, the internet and Web 2.0 technologies, the virtual worlds of Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOGs) have emerged: complex new social and cultural environments that bring with them tremendous opportunities for learning. This convergence of contexts, a defining feature of new media, combines the potential sociality of the internet with the fun and challenge of gaming, blurring the lines between entertainment, play, information and socialisation (de Freitas & Griffiths, 2008, p.11). Through fantasy-styled role-playing MMOG (MMORPG) World of Warcraft (WoW), I will explore evidence of the benefits and drawbacks of these new forms of sociality, and examine ways in which of MMORPGs show potential to develop new social practices and ways of learning, both from a player/learner perspective (Jenkins, 2006; Shaffer, Squire, Halverson & Gee, 2005, p.106), and in terms of studying and understanding social dynamics of human groups on a larger scale (Szell & Thurner, 2010, p.314). WoW's enormous success exemplifies the massive social phenomenon of online gaming and virtual worlds (Shaffer, Squire, Halverson & Gee, 2005, p.106). Released in 2004, Steinkuehler & Williams describe WoW as “the latest step in a progression of social games” (2006, p.887), referring to the many evolutions in this style of game since its early origins in Dungeons and Dragons-style pencil and paper......

Ciommunication Is Complex

...Communication is Complex Insert Name COM 200 Interpersonal Communications Joan Golding March 4, 2013 Communication is Complex Although we are all different in our cognitive abilities, our mind and the mental processes of awareness, perception, reasoning, and judgment, make humans different from other animalsn There is a inheredited A FUNDAMENTAL, powerful, and universal need or desire among humans to interact with others. As expressed by Afifi and Guerrero (2000:170): 'There is a long history of research establishing the importance that individuals placeon connectedness… individuals' needs for initiating, developing and maintaining social ties especially close ones, is reflected in a litany of studies and a host of theories.' The mere presenceof another has been shown to be arousing and motivating and this in turn influences our behaviour-a process termed compresence (Burgoon et al., 1996). We behave differently in the company of another person from when alone. When we meet others we are 'onstage' and so give a performance that differs from how we behave 'offstage'. We also enjoy interacting, and indeed the act of engaging in facilitative interpersonal communication has been shown to contribute to positive changes in emotional state (Gable and Shean, 2000). While our dealings with others can sometimes be problematic or even contentious, we also seek, relish, and obtain great reward from social interaction. Close Relationships Sometimes Mask Poor...

World Health Alternatives, Inc. Fraud

...655 – Advanced Auditing Term Paper: World Health Alternatives, INC – Fraud Brian O’Rourke, Katharina Ryska 10/14/2013 Introduction Scandals like Enron, Worldcom and Tyco have taught society about CEO’s fudging financial statements in order to make some extra money. With millions of dollars lost for the shareholders, members of the management engaging in fraudulent activity face high penalties. However, these penalties do not stop executives from trying to scam the system. World Health Alternatives, Inc got negative press following a big fraud investigation. The company with its number of wholly owned subsidiaries provides “medical, professional, and administrative staffing services to the healthcare industry in the United States.” By comprising nurse and physician staffing one would expect the company to have integrity. This paper is going to look at the fraud case, auditor’s responsibility, financial statements as well as the charges against the auditor. Furthermore, this paper is trying to see if the SEC allegations were warranted against the auditor. Overview of the Case According to the SEC, World Health Altneratives, Inc (World Health) engaged in fraudulent and improper conduct from at least May 2003 – August 2005. They manipulated accounting entries by understating expenses and liabilities, which made World Health look more financially sound. According to the SEC Website, “every annual and quarterly report that World Health filed with the Commission......

The Global Aids Crisis and Health Care in the Developing World

...Paula Bent Research Paper 12/19/2010 The Global AIDS crisis and Health Care in the Developing World The global epidemic of HIV/AIDS is rapidly becoming the worst infectious-disease catastrophe in recorded history, surpassing the bubonic plague of the fourteenth century and the influenza epidemic of 1917, each of which killed some 20 million people. (1) The HIV/AIDS epidemic, first identified in 1981, remains among the greatest threats to global health. (2) AIDS has an unprecedented impact on the economy and society because it kills so many adults in the prime of their working lives; it decimates the workforce, impoverishes families, and shreds communities. To summarize, in the worst affected areas it is actually reversing the development gains made over the last four decades. In many cases the disease threatens to eliminate around twenty percent of the workforce. AIDS has an overwhelming impact on developing economies because, unlike other diseases, it kills young and middle-aged adults who are often healthy and productive members of society. In sub-Saharan Africa and many other regions in the world, more women than ever before are living with HIV/AIDS. Further research that reflects the voices of these women is essential. (5). Because of this epidemic both adds to companies' labor costs and slows growth rates in many developing economies. The disease is shared by the developing world where eighty-five percent of AIDS cases are present in the world’s poorer......

Discussion of Underlying World Health Problems.

...In order to reflect upon the underlying causes of world hunger I am going to use the sociological imagination template, and my own reflective thoughts and opinions. With over 870 Million people in the world suffering from hunger it is definitely a prominent issue in a global context. By using the sociological imagination template, I was able to gather a deeper understanding of the issue by dissecting each factor. The historical factor is is how past events can, and will impact on the present and future. In my opinion, the main historical factors are armed conflict, natural disasters, inefficient agricultural practices and poor crop yields. The outcomes of hunger from armed conflict can be rooted in the destroying of crops, livestock, other food sources, as well as farmers and communities reducing or ceasing farming out of fear or becoming under direct attack. In addition to these outcomes it is noted that even years after armed conflict has ceased in a country, a strain is still present on the source and distribution of food supplies. In the aftermath of a natural disaster it is critical that resources are supplied to those affected in order to support a healthy and safe environment while reconstruction takes places within the community. Through natural disaster, damaged land which is unable to be used, and supply of imported and exported food supplies become the main areas affected. Through analysing the historical factors, I am able to form a connection between......

...Environmental Health Impact Assessment., Evaluation of a Ten-Step Model Rainer Fehr "Environmental impact assessment" denotes the attempt to predict and assess the impact of development projects on the environment. A component dealing specifically with human health is often called an "environmental health impact assessment." It is widely held that such impact assessment offers unique opportunities for the protection and promotion of human health. The following components were identified as key elements of an integrated environmental health impact assessment model: project analysis, analysis of status quo (including regional analysis, population analysis, and background situation), prediction of impact (including prognosis of future pollution and prognosis of health impact), assessment of impact, recommendations, communication of results, and evaluation of the overall procedure. The concept was applied to a project of extending a waste disposal facility and to a city bypass highway project. Currently, the coverage of human health aspects in environmental impact assessment still tends to be incomplete, and public health departments often do not participate. Environmental health impact assessment as a tool for health protection and promotion is underutilized. It would be useful to achieve consensus on a comprehensive generic concept. An international initiative to improve the situation seems worth some consideration. (Epidemiology......

Simple Rules of Complex World

...Simple rules for a complex world All companies have goals crafted for them to achieve and to achieve those goals they form strategies. In this article as per the authors’ research, if a company wants to achieve their goals, they have to work on simple rules. Complexity is not always intended. It is not necessary that the solution for a complex problem has to be a complex and tricky one. To make better decision, As per the author there are five simple ways of defining simple rules which are Identifying the bottle neck where in companies identify the opportunities and focus on one or two critical areas with greatest impact ad step is Let data outmaneuver opinion i.e. rather than relying on data mangers should look on small numbers of strategic events to analyze. Letting users make their rules can help the cross functional team to sort the tough decisions as these people are more near to the process than CEOs. Rules should be easy to understand as simple as they can be answered in yes or no and Rules should be evolving. Following these simple rules companies can overcome the complex issues In Case of America Latina Logistica (ALL) a freight railway company in Brazil.

The World Is Not a Rube Goldberg: the Complex Causal Chain Argument

...The world is not a Rube Goldberg: The complex causal chain argument Rube Goldberg, a cartoonist, engineer, and inventor, gave us cartoons of many machines that illustrate the complexity of cause/effect events in the real world yet are still simple. His machines and cartoons, known as Rube Goldbergs, often contain complicated steps that a machine will go through to do something very simple. An example of this is the “self-operating napkin” (Goldberg): [pic][pic] In this Rube Goldberg, one can see that as he lifts the spoon to eat (A), it pulls the cord (B) that flicks the spoon (C). The spoon tosses the bread (D) that the bird (E) goes for and so the stuff on the other side of the balance (F) falls into the bucket (G). As the bucket drops (H), it pulls the string (I) that opens the box that lets out the fire (J). The fire ignites the fire-cracker (K), which pulls the scythe (L). The scythe cuts the cord (M), which lets the napkin move according to the ticking of the clock and wipes the man’s mouth. The plethora of events and cause/effect connections in this description seem complex compared to the simple act of picking up the napkin oneself and doing it. As complex as these events seem, they are still simple compared to any real set of events in the world. In this Rube Goldberg, the causal chain is that A causes B which causes C and so on. This is a linear chain of events where A and only A causes B which only causes C and so on. Even though the explanation of what......
