PU Strategy Formulation Presentation

In 2004, High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP) came into being as an employer sponsored alternative to more traditional health plans. Since the passage of the Patient Protection and Accountable Care Act in 2010, there has been in increase in the volume of HDHP enrollments. At present, roughly 29% of the U.S. population is enrolled in a HDHP. These plans require employees to setup health savings accounts (HSA), which are pre-taxed dollars set aside to cover allowable healthcare-related expenses. In order for a HDHP to be considered a qualifying plan, there must be a minimum annual deductible and an out-of-pocket maximum. These amounts are typically adjusted upward by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to account for inflation.

Since the enrollees are taking on more of the financial risk through the higher deductibles, the monthly premiums tend to be lower than are typically associated with more traditional health plans. Since consumers are having to pay more out of their pockets to cover healthcare costs, they are becoming more price sensitive and inclined to shop around for best pricing from providers and provider organizations.

On January 1, 2019, the Inpatient Prospective Payment System rule went into effect, which requires hospitals receiving reimbursement from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to post their standard procedure prices online. President Trump implemented this rule in an attempt to create a society of informed health care consumers. Now that consumers are becoming more cost conscious and expecting the best possible value for their dollar spent, providers and provider organizations need to reexamine their marketing strategies.

Memorial Hermann, the largest healthcare system in Southeast Texas, believes it’s time to audit their marketing strategy and propose specific marketing strategies that the System can employ to expand their overall work share. This graded activity is designed to familiarize you with concepts typically associated with strategic marketing to include, but necessarily limited to: target marketing, brand management, advertising and promotion management, social media, website and search engine marketing/search engine optimization, Internet marketing, and marketing research to include analytics and qualitative analysis.

According to their website, Memorial Hermann states that:

“At Memorial Hermann, we’re all about advancing health. Yours. It begins by redefining healthcare.

Samuel is a 56-year-old science teacher who both lives and works in Robbinsdale, MN. He and Lisa have been married for 7 years—not long after they met at a support group for widowed spouses. After Lisa’s son, now 23, moved away for college, Samuel and Lisa moved into a split-level condo so that there would be room for Samuel’s father to come live with them some day. Samuel’s father, once a Tuskegee Airman, is a quiet but fiercely independent man who has other ideas. His father’s current memory lapses, however, have Samuel concerned that his father probably shouldn’t live on his own much longer.

Which physical examination focus points could the nursing staff and medical technicians be assigned to complete?

Sports Physicals

In the sports medicine field, the sports physical exam is known as a preparticipation physical examination (PPE). The exam helps determine whether it is safe for you to participate in a certain sport. Most states actually require that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season. But even if a sports physical is not required, doctors still highly recommend getting one.

Case Study
The administration of the local critical access hospital has asked the practitioner to organize a community service program to conduct sports physicals for local junior high and high school athletes at no cost to the student. The practitioner has the use of the usual physician office space or the facility’s large meeting space and will recruit physicians, nurse practitioners, nursing staff, and medical technicians to conduct the sports physicals. Based on a survey of nearby school districts, the administration expects to serve 100 to 150 student athletes over the 2 days the physicals will be offered.

Case Questions

  1. Which format would most effectively serve the needs of the students in this program? Include consideration of the space chosen for conducting the program.
  2. Which space would be most appropriate to use for the program and why?
  3. What are the drawbacks to the assembly-line format?
  4. Which physical examination focus points could the nursing staff and medical technicians be assigned to complete?
  5. When the practitioner is preparing to advertise the program being offered, the local newspaper asks the practitioner to identify three of the main objectives of the sports physicals for an article. How would the practitioner respond?

Identify three steps in the revenue cycle management process and apply its relationship to the billing and coding process

In addition to the core EHR administrative and clinical functions, system applications are often acquired to support additional departments within the hospital or other healthcare organizations Health Information Technology.

It is recommended that you work on this assignment as you complete your Unit 3 activities, and view lectures and interviews. Your responses should be thorough, well-conceived college-level responses that are grammatically correct. When you answer these questions, justify your responses with facts and details from the readings, and with your conclusions. Please write your answers in complete sentences.

  1. Identify three steps in the revenue cycle management process and apply its relationship to the billing and coding process
  2. Discuss the responsible party and their role (ex: pre-registration, front desk, clinical, etc.) in executing each of the three steps.
  3. Assess the impact of each of the three steps on the revenue cycle management process when not completed accurately. Recommend one method for revising inaccuracies in each step.

Does Health Information Technology Reduce healthcare Costs?

1Based on the overview, developed after finishing chapter one (The context of healthcare Financial Management) Discuss does Health Information Technology Reduce healthcare Costs? Some analysts have suggested that the adoption of electronic medical records (EHR) by hospitals could eventually reduce annual healthcare expenditures by one third or more. Others have been far less sanguine about such projections, arguing that adopting such information technologies may in fact increase costs. State if you agree or disagree with reasons.

How is the concept of “disorders of brain function” related to Fred’s presenting symptoms?

I’m working on a health & medical discussion question and need support to help me learn.

Fifty-four-year-old Fred is complaining of a headache that started about 2 weeks ago. For the past 2 days, the headache has increased in severity, and he is photophobic and has uncial rigidity and projectile vomiting. CT scan results show an arteriovenous malformation in the basal artery and a small hemorrhagic bleed in the middle meningeal artery.

How is the concept of “disorders of brain function” related to Fred’s presenting symptoms?

What aspects of cerebral circulation would come into play in Fred’s case?
