Question: Walden NURS6053 Week 2 Assignment Analysis of a Pertinent Healthcare Issue.


Week 2 Assignment:

Analysis of a Pertinent Healthcare Issue

The Quadruple Aim provides broad categories of goals to pursue to maintain and
improve healthcare. Within each goal are many issues that, if addressed
successfully, may have a positive impact on outcomes. For example, healthcare
leaders are being tasked to shift from an emphasis on disease management often
provided in an acute care setting to health promotion and disease prevention
delivered in primary care settings. Efforts in this area can have significant
positive impacts by reducing the need for primary healthcare and by reducing
the stress on the healthcare system.

Changes in
the industry only serve to stress what has always been true; namely, that the
healthcare field has always faced significant challenges, and that goals to
improve healthcare will always involve multiple stakeholders. This should not
seem surprising given the circumstances. Indeed, when a growing population
needs care, there are factors involved such as the demands of providing that
care and the rising costs associated with healthcare. Generally, it is not
surprising that the field of healthcare is an industry facing multifaceted
issues that evolve over time.
