Please label paragraphs with critical points. Please follow the rubric. No headers nor page numbers are needed. Thank You.
A clinic decides to adopt an EHR system. The CIO must decide whether to purchase the entire system or do a pilot project first. If the office implements the entire system, the net benefits are $200,000 (good), $50,000 (mediocre) or -300,000 (bad). The net benefits of the system to the office depends on whether the system works good, mediocre or bad. The probabilities of being good, mediocre or bad are 0.3, 0.6 and 0.1 respectively. In a pilot project, there are two outcomes – the project either goes good, or not good, with the probabilities of 0.6 and 0.4 respectively. After the pilot project, the CIO will move on. If the pilot project works provides good results, he can implement a full scale project. The probability of working good ($100,000 outcome) in the full scale project is 0.7, of partially working ($10,000) is 0.3. If the pilot project does not work well, the CIO will give it up. In a give-up event, the office will lose $200,000. Make a decision whether the office should implement the “entire system” or the “pilot project” using a decision tree. Things to include when you turn in this assignment: 1. Your Excel spreadsheet with your calculations (worth 90 points) 2. Your decision Tree (worth 90 points) 3. Your recommendation (worth 90 points 30 points for grammar I also attached and example decision tree

Please answer the following questions: We are all aware of the lethality associated with tobacco and tobacco products, yet we still smoke. Knowing that tobacco use is the number one public health issue, what do you think we should do to combat the problem? What steps would you take and why? After conducting a brief Internet search, do you believe our health issues are genetic or heredity-based, or both? When answering this question, please consider your race, gender, marital status, ethnicity, job, and socioeconomic status (SES).
his week’s assignment will allow you to generate content that you will incorporate into the Market Analysis section of your Final Project. To prepare for this assignment, read Chapter 4 of the course text and the article by Simoneaux and Stroud (2011). You may also want to review the recommended article by Valentin (2001). During the analysis stage, you consider external factors that pose possible threats to or provide opportunities for your organization and compare these factors against your HCO’s internal operation to diagnose its strengths and weaknesses. Many HCOs have found it useful to conduct a SWOT analysis. SWOT is an acronym for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Strengths and weaknesses refer to elements that are internal to the organization; opportunities and threats are external to the organization. An effective SWOT analysis helps the marketing team determine the healthcare organization’s position in a particular market place as well as the positions of its competitors. By analyzing the current market and the deficiencies of the HCO’s competitors, and by assessing the HCO’s internal strengths and weaknesses, the marketing team can reposition the organization to meet and exceed the needs of its customers. For this assignment, you will conduct a detailed SWOT analysis of your chosen healthcare organization for your Final Project. Discuss your selected organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and possible threats. The SWOT analysis should include the following five components: Strengths – An organization’s resources and capabilities that can be used as a basis for developing a competitive advantage. Weaknesses – Limitations of an organization to meet the needs of its determined customer base. Opportunities – External conditions that may reveal certain new opportunities regarding profit and growth. Threats – Factors or changes in the external environment that may present threats to the organization. Summary/Recommendations – After conducting your SWOT analysis, write a paragraph in which you provide your recommendations to the CEO of your chosen healthcare organization. Also state how you will use this information to create a marketing plan that will ensure the following: The organization’s resources are not wasted Time is well spent Marketing efficiently is improved The assignment Must be four to five double-spaced pages in length (not including the title page and references page) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the UAGC Writing Center (Links to an external site.). Must include a separate title page with the following: Title of paper Student’s name Course name and number Instructor’s name Date submitted Must use at least three scholarly sources in addition to the course text. Must document all sources in APA style as outlined in the UAGC Writing Center. Must include a separate references page that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the UAGC Writing Center.
This is a 25 page research paper but I have 3 pages completed already so I just need the rest completed on the topic below for my PHD level HEALTH Policy course. . The professor would like the numbered items addressed in the paper so I researched the material that needs to be used to address them and the points that need to be elaborated on for each section. The professor needs references (in-text) as well. I have completed a section already and have included it so that you can get a sense of what my writing voice and my writing tone is. I want to make sure the writing is similar to my writing style/ tone that is already in the previous sections as this is not a large group and the professor has previous writing material from me that he has graded and is familiar with my voice. Nonetheless, I think you will be able to complete this. The assignment is already over-due so as soon as you are able to complete I will appreciate it. Please use the references I have included and if you use additional references please provide citations. many thanks. LAST NOTE : my professor uses software which scans papers for plagiarism and likeness to other papers, so please paraphrase like I have done in the example. Topic: Medicaid Expansion – Access Disparities Thesis: 12 States have not adopted the Medicaid expansion, leaving millions of Americans in these states uninsured and without access to affordable healthcare. The inaction by these states to adopt Medicaid expansion is continuing to deepen racial and socioeconomic health disparities in these states. Background: With the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) millions of Americans were set to become eligible for access to affordable healthcare. The scope of Medicaid expansion that the ACA was set to provide would have provided hundreds of billions of dollars to states from the federal government in order to fund Medicaid expansion to states and bring the country a step closer to realizing universal healthcare access for all Americans. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was not passed through the legislature with bi-partisan support. In fact, It was met with much opposition from conservative members of the legislature, many of whom vowed that their states would not accept any funds from the federal government that came from the Affordable Care Act. A total of 12 states opted not to expand Medicaid coverage and accept Medicaid funds for their states. The ramifications of this legislative decision have impacted the residents of the states who now must do without access to affordable healthcare. Amidst a global pandemic and economic turmoil, many Americans have lost income, lost employer sponsored health insurance, and have taken additional medical bills as the result of Covid-19. The communities impacted most by these legislative decisions often are those already marginalized communities of lower socioeconomic status Black and Hispanic individuals. These same communities are also the ones that have the greatest need for quality healthcare access, and the inaction of many state governors to continue Medicaid expansion stands to further deepen the racial and socioeconomic health disparities in their states. 2. A description/discussion (including statistical descriptors) of the demographics of the target population including who benefits and under what conditions (eligibility criteria) and for how long (time, age limits) a. – who will be covered under ACA b. Effects of ACA in Medicaid expansion and non med expansion states – c. “Medicaid expansion increased the probability of having “any insurance” for the pooled urban and rural low-income populations” – 3. Discussion of ideological and values that underpin this social policy are presented. Specific political influences are identified and discussed in light of the legislation’s intent. a. Healthcare disparities, gaps in access, quality, etc. b. Universal healthcare is it right for US?- c. dEBATE- PROS AND Cons of universal health care – d. need for universal healthcare amid Covid 19 – 4. An analysis of the policy in light of its stated intent: a substantive discussion of the implications of the policy in regard to gender, race and class. Does the policy “do” what it intended to? If not, why? If so, how well? a. – improves womens health- cant be charged more b. health benefits for women c. - has reduced racial disparities – black Hispanic etc d. Narrows racial disparities – e. Racial disparities- f. Reduced class disparities- g. Affordable for low income people – h. Effects of aca intent- i. Doing what its intended to do ? j. Accomplishmnets of ACA – 5. A discussion of the consideration and presentation of alternative approaches that might better embrace the mission of public health programs at the national, state, and municipal levels. If the policy is working to attain its goal, discuss how and why. In this section you should pay particular attention to how this policy is working (or not) to advance the public health programs within society. a. What makes ACA successful – provides income stream, etc.. b. Protects preexisting conditons, etc, list of why it works – c. Cost sharing, etc. – This is what I have so far: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) commonly referred to as “Obamacare” was enacted into law in March of 2010, comprised of two healthcare bills officially known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) (Pub. L. No. 111-148, 124 STAT. 119), and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (HERCA) (Pub. L. No. 111-152, 124 Stat. 1029) (citations). The ACA bill was enacted on March 23rd of 2010, and the later HERCA bill would later go into law on March 30th of 2010. The Affordable Care Act is the primary law that was passed with three primary objectives of 1) Providing access to affordable health care to more people 2) Expanding Medicaid coverage to more people 3) providing government support for lowering healthcare delivery costs (. Health and Human Services, .). The Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (HERCA) was enacted as a reconciliation bill to assuage differences between the . House of Representatives and the . Senate versions of the healthcare law. HERCA was thus enacted into law as part of the healthcare reform legislation as a reconciliation bill that would allow for only budgetary amendments to be made to the Affordable Care Act (University of Minnesota Law School, 2021). These two landmark laws enacted under the administration of President Barack Obama would become one of the most significant healthcare reform legislation ever signed into law in the history of the United States. The passage of the Affordable Care Act is one of the defining achievements of the Obama administration that campaigned reforming the . healthcare systems that had left an estimated 45 million people uninsured, as a centerpiece of his administration (Levy, 2021). The introduction of what would eventually become the ACA was met with ardent apprehension and opposition, as previous attempts at large scale healthcare reform had been unsuccessful. The need for healthcare reform itself was not a universally agreed mandate among legislative members at the time, notably, members of the Republican party. Even among legislators who did agree that healthcare reform was needed, the best approach or avenue to reform was still a subject for debate. The precedence set for attempts at healthcare reform did not favor successful passage of healthcare reform. Previous attempts at healthcare reform came under Democratic president Bill Clinton in 1993. His proposal for healthcare reform was created by a national taskforce spearheaded by First Lady Hillary Clinton. The bill that was developed and presented was known as “The Health Security Act of 1993” which aimed to ensure every American had access to healthcare services in the United States. The proposed bill would quickly become coined as “Hillary-care” by opposition in the Republican party and met with criticism and opposition from health insurance lobbyist, pharmaceutical lobbyists, and small-business lobbyists which would ultimately contribute to the bills demise (Navarro, 2008). The Health Security Act of 1993 also known as “Hillary-care” never advanced far enough through the legislative process to come to a vote by the . Senate due to a myriad of reasons that would set a negative precedence for future attempts at healthcare reform (""HillaryCare" (The proposed health security Act of 1993)," .).

You will create a workshop proposal to educate your community on adopting healthy food choices and applying them to everyday life. You will begin with a short introduction (approximately 300 words) on the background of nutrition and behavior relationship and the reasons for this workshop. You will end the proposal with a short summary of future recommendations for lifestyle change. Be sure to note whether the research you have used as resources in your workshop has followed ethical procedures in methods and especially in the choice of a diverse population of participants. It is very important for gaining confidence of your attendees. Generally, a workshop is a single educational program of variable duration (could be from 45 minutes to two days) designed to teach or introduce a particular practical skills, techniques, or ideas which the attendees can use in their work or their daily lives. Since workshops allow for some personal attention, they are usually small (6 to 20 participants) and are presented for a group that has something in common. In your case, it will be your community. Please use the resources available for this week to help you in creating a successful workshop. Your references should include at least 10 articles pertaining to the population of your choice. Up to five of these references can be from scholarly Internet sources, including government and educational websites. The remainder of the resources should be articles published in peer-reviewed journals within the past five years. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles may be included. Be sure to think about what myths and misinformation your workshop attendees might have, and incorporate material to address those with accurate information and recommendations. Length: 10-12 pages not including title and reference pages.
Select one of the following religions to research. Select a religion that reflects the population that you may serve: Bahá’í Faith Islam Judaism Atheism New Thought Mormon Jehovah’s Witnesses Native American (pantheism) Zoroastrianism Hinduism Sikhism Your research should focus on views of suffering and grief from the selected religion.
Technology is a part of our everyday lives. Many of us rely on technology for work, school, or to communicate with family or friends that may live far away from us. However, some individuals have a difficult time establishing healthy boundaries with computers and smartphones. For this discussion post, please address the following questions: Do you see technology and/or smartphones as a hindrance or a tool in our daily lives? Can we responsibly use technology and smartphones? In what way? In what environment is it appropriate? Should education incorporate more technology? If so, what age is it inappropriate? Your initial post should be a logical and thoughtful response to questions posted and typically should be at least 250 words and respond to two posts made by your classmates Student Response 1 I think it depends on the time the person spends online and what they are doing. There are many ways technology can be used as a tool. While there are also ways it can become a hindrance to daily life. If the user is constantly playing games or is on social media and does nothing else, that is an escalating problem. As the effects of extensive screen time on the developing brain are well documented. For example, in infants 6 to 12 months, increases in screen time were tied to weaker language development (Small et al., 2020). In 8-to-12-year olds, increased screen time is associated with decreased brain connectivity between regions crucial to word recognition and language and cognitive control. On a structural level, the more time spent online linked to more insults to white-matter pathways needed to read and write (Small et al., 2020). These few examples show how prolonged screen time impacts the developing brain. Yet, I also think it speaks to the relationship a child has with their parents. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends parents severely restrict screen time before their child is 2. A study that looked at the contrary found that children using their phone under 2 for an hour were using it twice as much by the time they turned 3 (Small et al., 2020). This points to the issue of parents letting their kids use devices much younger now without setting limits. While it also suggests they don’t prompt any repercussions to their kids. In turn, they get hooked earlier, their brain structure and function change, and they have a harder time acquiring new skills. As technology continues to advance, more will show up in the schools. I think if a child is to use a device at school, the school has to supply it first. Meaning, the school has to be the one to set restrictions. Kids shouldn’t be allowed to scroll aimlessly or play games they play at home in class. I don’t think they should have their phones in class either since it would take away from the purpose. Reference Small, G. W., Lee, J., Kaufman, A., Jalil, J., Siddarth, P., Gaddipati, H., Moody, T. D., & Bookheimer, S. Y. (2020). Brain health consequences of digital technology use. Dialogues in clinical neuroscience, 22(2), 179–187. Student Response 2 Smartphones have become such a major part of life that to be without one is to in effect be ostracized from society because you are unable to “plugin”. Just the thought of telling people that you don’t have a phone would probably elicit responses that would question one’s mental sanity. Technology as a whole has infected humanity so badly that socialization has suffered tremendously. People are so infatuated with their online presence that their real presence has become greatly diminished. Nothing in life can be at its best without practice and refinement. Refinement is so important because it does no good to practice incorrect things. Because socialization and intimate relationships are necessary to proper growth and development this lack of it has caused humanity to devolve to a degree. Smartphones and technology can be utilized responsibly if they are used in moderation. As it stands there is a clear plan to replace humans in certain functions within society and this is where I feel it goes too far. Technology should be useful only insofar as it makes life easier for humans because it should serve as a tool to enhance the lives of humans rather than replace them. From the age of Kindergarten, children should be introduced to technology in a controlled and responsible way, because it is important to be acclimated to technology in today’s society. However, children shouldn’t be allowed to have smartphones until they are of an age to have demonstrated a degree of responsibility. Personally, I do not feel it is necessary until children start to attend events independently of their parents.
