Planning and Strategic Management
Instructions will be uploaded. Thanks,
This week the readings are focused on planning and strategic management. Planning is an analytical process which involves an assessment of the future. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act has many impacts on health care organizations.A key provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the requirement that private insurance plans cover recommended preventive services without any patient cost-sharing.. Research has shown that evidence-based preventive services can save lives and improve health by identifying illnesses earlier, managing them more effectively, and treating them before they develop into more complicated, debilitating conditions, and that some services are also cost-effective. However, costs do prevent some individuals from obtaining preventive services. The coverage requirement aims to remove cost barriers.
