Feedback from Physicians. Physicians are an important part in EBBP process .Therefore survey was conducted to get their opinion on the use of EBBP clinical guidelines in hospitals (Thibadoux, Scheidt, & Luckey, 2007, p. xx ) . The results were mainly ethical and how to implement the standard cost system. Below are some of the ethical concerns.. Basic issues o Several physicians felt that the standard cost technique is more useful in reporting rather than in monitoring and control. o Concern that they will bear responsibility even though they are cannot control the patient or the hospital personnel. o Concerns over ethics and differing beliefs and values. They are limited by patient’s beliefs, values and lifestyle choices. o Ethics and patient’s data confidentiality. This will violate doctor-patient confidentiality agreement. o Ethic and medicine as a business. Physicians were against taking health care as a business venture.

ACCOUNTING & MEDICINE 6 o Finally, they were concerned about the rationale used to gather data, what will be considered and lastly how will the rate at which the EBBP used in hospitals will be updated. My take EBBP is an essential tool in health care as is will reduce on the cost of medication. It is important for health care providers to adopt this practice in order to boost efficiency in service delivery. Most hospitals render services solely to make more money to the point that the health status becomes less of a priority. Therefore, a standard cost system in clinical procedure will keep each personnel in check creating an effective and efficient working environment. References

    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.
