7-2 FINAL PROJECT SUBMISSION: WRITTEN PROPOSAL 2 When it comes to the delivery of healthcare and the effect of major forces such as projected provider shortages, informed and involved patients, and increasing government regulations there are several negative and positive impacts on healthcare. As many organizations strive to improve the negative impacts, many financial operations are used to support the long jeopardy of the organizations success. Major forces affecting the delivery of healthcare today is the billions of dollars being invested in software’s and machines to keep up with competitors and attract business. Major forces can determine the future financial success of based on the impact of forces long-term and short-term. Introduction: Impact of Forces Healthcare service and delivery opportunities and challenges exist because of over worked providers. Many patients are not given a good quality of care because providers have way too many patients to see in such an unreasonable amount of time. Many organizations depend on technology as a base to improve negative impacts by purchasing expensive software through lease financing (operating, financing, and combination); leading to organizations going bankrupt. Secondly, a part of great delivery of healthcare is ensuring patients are informed and involved. With the patient to physician ratio, this has been a challenge and can lead to patients being treated for the wrong diagnosis which could result in lawsuits affecting the net amount of the organization. Thirdly, increasing government regulations, is an excellent start to organizations retaining and increasing revenue. On regular bases all healthcare organizations are surveyed on how well they follow government regulations. Based on survey results they are given financial incentives. This typically can prevent the organizations from paying bonuses out of pocket. However, the negative affect is the penalty fee’s charged if government regulations are not followed and any lawsuits sought in malpractice act.
