What types of accounting are you familiar with?

This is a lecture preparation. I can provide a example after bid selection. Prepare a lecture for an introductory health care finance class on types of revenue sources for health care organizations. For each revenue source, explain the purpose of the program, how the organization is reimbursed, and the benefits of the program. Introduction Note: The assessments in this course build upon each other, so you are strongly encouraged to complete them in sequence. Include a title page and reference page. Number of pages: Roughly 4–7. At least three current scholarly or professional resources. APA format for in-text citations and references only. Times New Roman font, 12 point. Double-spaced. Sustainable health care organizations are charged with balancing clinical and fiscal facets of the operation. It has become increasingly important for health care leaders at all levels within an organization to become comfortable with financial statements and basic accounting principles. As an early careerist, you may be involved in conversations to evaluate existing and new health care service lines. You may be asked to participate in various financial activities such as team budgeting activities, developing a departmental budget, or contributing to strategic planning or finance department meetings. As a mid or advanced careerist, you may be evaluating higher-level organization financing options, determining cash flow needs, or perhaps presenting financial information to the CEO and board. Regardless of your position within the organization, a basic understanding of health care finance is a critical success factor for effective and responsible health care leadership. To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. What types of accounting are you familiar with? How have you used it or seen it used? How can you use knowledge of revenue sources to help in financial forecasting? Preparation Look in the Capella University Library and on the Internet to find resources on Medicare, Medicaid, and managed care. Specifically, you need information on what each program is, how it works, and how organizations receive reimbursements from each. You will need these resources to complete this assessment. For the purpose of this assessment, suppose you work for a large health care organization that partners with the local college on a number of initiatives. As a part of that partnership, you have been asked to be a guest presenter for an introductory health care finance class. You need to explain sources of health care revenue and how the reimbursement process works. You need to prepare a 45-minute lecture on that topic. There is no prescribed format for this assessment, but you must reference at least three resources and follow the APA guidelines. Just be sure that your assessment is organized logically and your information is presented clearly. Requirements Write a 45-minute lecture plan for an introductory health care finance class. (You will not be evaluated on whether your lecture plan is actually 45 minutes in length.) The three types of revenue sources you will cover are the following: Medicaid. Medicare. Managed Care. For each of the revenue sources, you must do the following: Explain the purpose of the program. Analyze the process of reimbursement for health care organizations. What steps must be taken in order to receive reimbursement for services? How complicated is each step? What kind of information is required from the organization? How long does it take to receive reimbursement? Explain the benefits of the program for both patients and health care organizations.

Describe the interrelatedness of relevant dimensions of health.

Course objective(s) 2, 3 Council on Education in Public Health Bachelor’s Competencies – Public Health Communication: HCb, HCc; Information Literacy: ILa, ILb, ILc, ILd Module Level Objective(s): 4.2 Refer to the syllabus for a detailed description of course objectives and CEPH competencies. Background- According to the Harvard Health Publications, “The word “addiction” is derived from a Latin term for “enslaved by” or “bound to.” Anyone who has struggled to overcome an addiction—or has tried to help someone else to do so—understands why. Addiction exerts a long and powerful influence on the brain that manifests in three distinct ways: craving for the object of addiction, loss of control over its use, and continuing involvement with it despite adverse consequences. For many years, experts believed that only alcohol and powerful drugs could cause addiction. Neuroimaging technologies and more recent research, however, have shown that certain pleasurable activities, such as gambling, shopping, and sex, can also hijack the brain.” There are also emerging theories that posit certain experiences one undergoes during childhood brain development, may shape brain physiology. Thus, making one unknowingly more inclined towards pleasure-seeking activities as a form of self-regulation of neurochemicals (which is chemically similar to pain relief). Instructions- Watch the following videos. What is addiction? (Gabor Mate) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5sOh4gKPIg Conversation about addiction: Gabor Mate & Arold Langeveld (Watch the first 16 minutes) https://youtu.be/E20ByfEHeZw Discuss the following prompts: 1. What are some potential risk factors for addiction? 2. Describe the interrelatedness of relevant dimensions of health. 3. Describe current addiction treatment practices, skills, and resources necessary to maintain positive health behaviors. Based upon the current chapter readings/lectures, personal experiences, world view, and media/resources provided, you must comment on the specific reflection prompts provided- reflecting on how they relate to the weekly topic(s) and current society. Posts should be thoughtful, insightful, and a minimum of 250-500 words. These posts should add significant substance to the conversation and clearly reference (i.e. cite) information from current chapter readings/lectures (please follow current APA guidelines for your in-text citations and references). You must also respond to at least two classmates’ posts. Responses should be a minimum of 100-250 words, add substance to the conversation, be thoughtful, and promote discussion. Responses that generally say, “I agree”, “good point”, repeat others’ previous comments, or lack proper substance- lacking critical thinking or analysis, will not be considered for credit. Your initial post is due by Thursday at midnight. Your classmate responses are due by Sunday at midnight. See the rubric below for detailed guidelines.

Analyze the culture of the two healthcare organizations and how each is influenced by diversity and inclusion.

PLEASE USE ATTACHED POWERPOINT TEMPLATE SOURCES SHOULD BE CURRENT (NO MORE THAN 4 YEARS OLD) To Prepare: Identify two healthcare organizations to compare. These may be two healthcare settings in which you have worked or are otherwise familiar with, such as through experiences of people you know well, or reliable resources, including Learning Resources in both weeks of this module. Compare the terms “diversity” and “inclusion,” how each is defined, and the influence of each on the culture of a healthcare organization. For each organization, research to identify the dimensions of diversity and degree of inclusion (e.g., race, ethnicity, language, gender, age, religious beliefs, disabilities, as well as others described in the resources you use). Consider evidence you would use in assessing each organization and in comparing your views of each. Specifically, what would you look for to assess the level of diversity and concerns regarding inclusion? How would you go about obtaining this information? For example, on an organization’s website, look for mission statements on diversity and inclusion; employee forums addressing equity issues; and task forces on improving diversity and inclusion, or meeting related goals. Based on your research, reflect on the culture of each organization as it relates to issues of diversity and inclusion. Speculate on how diversity and inclusion issues affect, positively and negatively, such areas as: Organizational performance Staff morale Patient care Business case for diversity and inclusion Compare your evidence and insights on each organization for conclusions on the influence of diversity and inclusion within healthcare organizations. Reflect on leadership roles in healthcare organizations, including nurse executives, in supporting and promoting greater diversity and inclusion in healthcare settings. DIRECTIONS FOR ACTUAL POWERPOINT: Using the Template document provided, create a PowerPoint presentation that compares the two organizations you researched and highlights your conclusions on the impact of diversity and inclusion in each organization. Prepare 10 slides, plus Title and Reference slides, to include the following: Define “diversity” and “inclusion” as applied to your presentation that will compare two healthcare organizations.Describe the two healthcare organizations you are comparing, including type and degree of diversity and inclusion, as well as organization type, size, location, and other distinguishing factors. Include supporting sources. Analyze the culture of the two healthcare organizations and how each is influenced by diversity and inclusion. Compare the cultures of the two healthcare organizations based on the role of diversity and inclusion in each, and strengths and weaknesses that relate to or derive from the degree of diversity and inclusion. Summarize your conclusions on the impact of diversity and inclusion on organizational culture in healthcare settings based on your comparison. Apply leadership strategies for a nurse executive to promote greater diversity, retain diverse staff members, and build cohesive teams and work groups.
