this is a group work and I am assigned to do just 2 parts of the assignment where I need the help for. The first part is a short paragraph about the " setting practice site" that article is talking about and the second part is a 3 paragraphs about " Economic" aspect of what the article is talking about.I have an example for each section that I will provide after the quot.
here is an example of writing those two sections that I was talking about.
'Setting/practice site :
This study took place from July 2006 to December 2007 in a community setting at two
ambulatory clinics with counseling services. Both clinics were Mission Hospital outpatient sites
in Asheville, NC. One clinic was an outpatient pharmacotherapy clinic staffed by pharmacists.
The other was an outpatient education center that employed three pharmacists for disease
"The project IMPACT has measured economic outcomes in terms of increase or decrease in
medical costs, prescription costs and total healthcare costs. Significant improvements in
economic outcomes were evident (from the health plans’ perspective) among the 48 patients with
complete economic data. The results of this study show that a depression care model that
emphasizes the role of pharmacists and realigns treatment incentives is worthy of further study.
Employers were satisfied with the program and continued to offer this voluntary health benefit
after the study’s conclusion. The below economic analysis includes the additional costs incurred
by the two health plans resulting from the program: pharmacist care manager services and
reduced prescription copayments.
The mean total health care cost to the employer per patient per year increased from $7,935 at
baseline to a value of $8,040 one year later; but, this total was less than the projected $9,023 for
the 48 evaluable participants. This value for actual total health care costs (per patient) represents
an 11% decline from projected values or a total savings of $41,881 per year for these 48
enrollees. The majority of this savings can be attributed to a decline in medical costs, which were
projected to amount to $5,353 per patient annually, but actual mean values were $3,600 (33%
lower than projected).
It can be noted that annual employer costs for prescription medications increased by 21%
compared with the projected costs ($3,670 vs. $4,440/patient). In the baseline year, employer
health plan medical costs represented 60% of total health care costs compared with 40% for
pharmacy claims; these proportions shifted to 45% medical and 55% pharmacy in the first year "
these two examples was drived from different article. I just wanted you to have an idea of how to write those two sections on the new article. thanks
