Project #24135 - Corporate Compliance in Healthcare

**** Original work only!! All questions require at least 3 full paraghraphs (4-5 sentences), which must cover all aspect

of the question and provide a real life example.****

 

 

1- All healthcare providers:

 

 

          –  Must comply with laws that govern them

 

          –  Should uphold ethical standards set forth by, for example, professional associations

 

          –  Should act morally towards patients, and others whom they serve

 

 

Do you believe it is possible for a healthcare provider to act legally, but not ethically or morally?  Support your position, provide at least one concrete example (real or create by you), and respond to your classmate’s posts.

 

 

 

2- The United States healthcare system has suffered significant financial losses due to fraudulent activities.  Why has this occurred?  And, how can the problem be solved?

 

 

 

3- Blue Ridge Hospital is located in a suburb of a major metropolitan hospital in the southeastern United States.  It is a 250-bed general acute care hospital, and competes for patients with 7 other hospitals within a 20-mile geographic area. Describe the organization, responsibilities, duties, and legal risks of the governing board of Blue Ridge Hospital.

 

 

 

4- Medicare billing guidelines are believed by many healthcare practitioners to be exceedingly complex.  Based upon your review of the guidelines, do you believe they serve any good purpose?  If yes, support your position.  If no, provide suggestions for alternatives to the current system.

 

 

 

5- Select one of the laws from the week 5 reading (HIPPA, EMTALA, Anti-Kickback or Stark) and identify one aspect of the law that you believe would be relatively simple for a provider to comply with and one aspect of the law that might be challenging for a provider to comply with.  Support your position with reasons why you believe the aspect of the law would be both easy and challenging.

 

 

 

6- Healthcare is becoming a scarce resource for Americans. Discuss the ethical dilemmas involved in the allocation of scarce resources, including rationing of healthcare services.

 

 

 

7- The HIPAA Legislation protects the information contained within the medical record from inappropriate usage or release. Therefore, medical records are the sole property of the patient and should never be released. Discuss your opinions on this statement.

 

 

I- Prepare a 1-2 page assessment of the legal system in the US.
