Описание: Each year, health care providers deliver more than $2 trillion in goods and services. Because of the unique health care payment system in the United States,
few of these dollars change hands directly between providers and patients. Instead, there is a complex reimbursement system, mostly dirven by third-party payment transaction between
government programs and insurance companies on the one hand, and health care providers on the other.
This system is made even more complex by the increasing
necessity to collect a growing percentage of fees directly from patients. In providing the first-hand perspective of a practitioner know for both his academic rigor and his grasp of
functional details, this unique work tells the complete story of health care revenue cycle management. Designed to improve the efficiency of managers, the book is organized by
functional area to reflect the organization of most revenue cycles.
In addition to first party interviews that define best practices and provide solutions to predictable but
complex challenges, the author includes a wealth of relevant literature citations. He further augments the text with a glossary, information tables, flowcharts, organizational charts,
sample policies, and sample directly descriptions.
Описание: Access to medicines is an issue of life or death for millions of people in poor countries. While great strides have been made in the last decade to improve health in poor countries - more aid funding for drugs and vaccines; creation of funds to buy medicines; and concessionary pricing of medicines by some pharmaceutical firms - the global supply chain that connects the dots – production to people – does not work well. The problem is poor forecasting of effective demand for products. Good forecasting is fundamental for key decisions, such as how much production capacity to build, which must be made years in advance of products being delivered. But donors that provide much of the money to purchase drugs, and a whole range of technical agencies and intermediaries, have yet to devise and coordinate among themselves, and with developing country governments, credible forecasts.This report of the Global Health Forecasting Working Group, which was convened in early 2006 by senior fellow and director of programs Ruth Levine, provides an elegant analysis of the problem and a sensible agenda for action. Their report offers specific recommendations that apply across a range of products and that could be implemented by identifiable public and private organizations.Among their recommendations is the creation of an “infomediary” - a neutral third party to collect and disseminate essential data for forecasting demand. Another recommendation is that donors who are the major purchasers should accept more of the risks associated with unforeseen shocks to actual demand - internalizing at least the shock that their own lack of predictable financing constitutes. That would imply, for example, that for some products donors move to contracts with manufacturers that include minimum quantity guarantees.If these recommendations are implemented, manufacturers will benefit - in reduced risk in the production of medical technologies; the donors or ministries of health will benefit from more reliable and accurate information on the price and availability of essential products; and most important, millions of families in the developing world will benefit - in reduced disease and deaths and the personal agony those entail.
Описание: Highlights various pitfalls of the American health care system and shows why, without changes, health care costs will demolish the American economy. This book examines how an insured family`s spending can be reduced by as much as the deductible and how for the uninsured, the government could stand in place of an employer to pay part of the cost.
Описание: John Money's career constitutes the foundation of pediatric psychoendocrinology. In this book he takes a second look at his publications on many different psychoendocrine syndromes, intersexual or hermaphroditic, with respect to sex, gender, amative orientation, and the "lovemap", (his own designation from an individual's experience of sexuality). His ultimate conclusion is that, from prenatal life onward, demasculization of development is not synonymous with feminization, nor is defeminization synonymous with masculinization. This volume will serve to illuminate the evolution of Dr. Money's work and point the way to future investigations in this field.
