Implementation Value-Based Purchasing P a g e | 10 overall patient outcomes. Incorporating a standardized discharge policy will reduce hospital readmission rates and post-hospital infections. Instituting pre-operative prophylactic antibiotics will result in reducing the number of surgical site infections. The business ethical side of nonmaleficence is evident by the improvement in the efficiency of patient care, reducing wait times, increasing thruput, and decreasing financial burden to the patient and the system. Beneficence includes all forms of action which promote the good of others ("Beneficence | definition of beneficence by Medical dictionary," 2003). Implementing Capacity Management will e nhance collaboration and coordination within the hospital resulting in reduced emergency department wait times and increasing the speed of healthcare services. Increasing patient involvement in the discharge process and the use of a standardized discharge process will help the patient feel more informed and empowered. Reducing surgical infections will result in decreased morbidity and mortality rates, therefore, improving patient healthcare outcomes. By implementing these initiatives patients will experience beneficence both clinically and financially. The ethical business principle of beneficence is apparent in the decreased length of hospital stays fewer re-admission rates and lower financial cost to both the patient and the overall healthcare system.
