individualize patient care planning and treatment. In order to do this the HCO will need to provide specialist consultation and support communication. The fourth thing is to improve community health and by doing so the HCO will measure the community health with a set of indicators and benchmarks.

established and this allows the HCOs to aggressively pursue quality across a continuum that incorporates office, home, and inpatient care.

Reducing long-term cost of healthcare. Hospitals and health systems today also have many safeguards in place. The quality assurance mechanisms, independent accreditation procedures and other safeguards provide an opportunity for nurses and health care workers to voice concerns over quality of patient care. When going over ensuring quality of clinical care we see that there are a lot of difficulties and financial risks involved.

The needs are always changing so it is up to the communities to make their voice heard in their needs and allow the physicians and HCOs make it the quality of the clinical care more efficient to them.

    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.
