  • Diagnosis And Treatment Of Depression In The Elderly - 1,176 words
    Diagnosis and Treatment of Depression in the Elderly Mental disorders are becoming more prevalent in todays society as people add stress and pressure to their daily lives.

  • Healthcare History - 998 words
    Healthcare History The historic payment system for reimbursing hospitals both by insurers and by Medicare has been Retrospective Cost Based Reimbursement(RCBR).

Charges have continued to rise year after year eventually putting the employers at a point where they could no longer afford the payments. For physician reimbursements, both insurers and Medicare employed the Usual and Customary(U+C) approach to reimbursement. This practice, which averaged the charges for a procedure in a region, also encourages doctors to over-charge in order to raise the average am ...

  • Nursing Is A Profession - 468 words
    Nursing Is A Profession Nursing is a profession that blends the rich traditions of the past with the ever changing realities of today's health care industry.

The status of nursing as a profession reflects the values that society places on the work of nurses and how central nursing is to the good of society.

  • The Clinton Health Plan - 1,687 words
    The Clinton Health Plan The health care situation in the United States is in dire need of a change. The United States spends more money on health care per individual than any other nation in the world (14%of its GNP in 1991), and that amount is quickly rising.
