21.086.4172 hours ago

1. All-Payer Claims Databases (APCDs) are large state-based databases which collect health care claims data from Medicare, Medicaid, state employee health plans and state-regulated private insurers. Policymakers, insurers, employers and other stakeholderscan use claims data to make informed health policy decisions by identifying extreme price variation, analyzing health care market trends and spending, and quantifying wasteful and low-value spending.

1. Public health has to do with the safety and well-being of populations. Contrast this to the field of medicine, which is primarily concerned with the health of individual patients. In medicine, doctors must do what is best for their individual patient. Public health takes a wider perspective, focusing on what must be done to improve and maintain the health of a collective group. Inherent in this approach is the reality that sometimes the government will require that individual rights be sacrificed for the greater good; people must forgo individual freedom, privacy, and autonomy in order to benefit their community. With this in mind, we define public health law as follows: This multifaceted definition focuses on five essential characteristics of public health law. 1. Government– The primary responsibility of safeguarding the public’s health falls to government, as it is best situated to act in the interest of the populace (Institute of Medicine, 2002). 2. Populations– Public health’s...

Public Reporting on Quality and Costs Health Affairs

21.086.4174 hours ago

1. Public reporting is a strategy to address quality and cost in the health care system by providing consumers, payers, and health care providers, such as doctors and hospitals, with information about the performance of these providers and insurance plans. It can include such tools as "report cards" on hospital performance, including the information found on Medicare's Hospital Compare website about how well hospitals deliver heart attack care. Public reports can allow for the comparison of costs, quality (such as rates of hospital-acquired infections), and how satisfied patients are with service. Advocates of public reporting believe that it helps consumers make informed decisions when choosing among physicians, hospitals, and health plans; guides employers and other purchasers when selecting insurance plans; and aids providers when making referrals to specialists. Providers and health plans, in turn, are motivated to improve their performance to protect their reputations and the dema...
