Economic Dynamics of Health Care Delivery Models
- Section A: Create a cost benefit analysis for an update that will improve the business: structural, office equipment, or staff. You can be creative in determining what the business needs. The cost will use the full amount of funds allotted to this improvement ($2 Million), so you can only improve one of these three needs
Note: Your work must include Steps 1-4, as outlined in section 7.2 (see attachment) of your course text.
- Section B: Create a cost effective analysis to determine how to best spend the $8 million portion of the grant funding on education and other preventive services.
The organization currently serves the community and clientele with community education classes at schools and community centers, as well as the distribution of condoms and educational materials. They wish to expand their current services to reach the neighboring community (4,000 residents), add social media advertising and messaging to reach the younger population, distribute educational material and condoms to homeless shelters in the area, and add HIV testing to at-risk individuals. Select two of the potential services and determine how the money can be best spent to have the greatest outcome for the HIV+ population in the community.
Note: Your work must address the costs as well as the anticipated benefits, as outlined in section 7.2 of your course text
Regulatory, Legal, Ethical, and Accreditation Issues in Research
As highlighted in Chapter 9 of your course text, three research methods are available (descriptive, analytic, and evaluative). Discuss these methods and give one example of how each would be used when conducting research using homeless individuals as subjects. Analyze regulatory, accreditation, ethical, and legal issues and challenges related to each research method.
Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by your course text and at least two other scholarly source. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
