I have enjoyed reading each of your post and I have learned a lot. I wasn’t as familiar with the true definitions of cost and profit centers. However I was able to gain further knowledge and direction from reading your posts. Costs can be both direct and indirect. Direct costs include cost that are for the service provided or the manufactured product (Harrington, 2016). These are directly related to the patient and the care of the patient, and can include any equipment needed for treatment. Indirect cost are costs that the organization incurs by providing services to the patient and are not simply limited to patient care (Harrington, 2016). This can include cleaning services that keep the hospital clean and sanitary as well as security services that keep everyone safe. Each department can incur their own indirect cost, meaning what is required to maintain the facility. Also as you all have mentioned it is very important for the United States to continuously improve health care. This includes additional health insurance reform.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
