Next, in journal format (APA formatting not required), provide a one (1) paragraph response to each of the following reflection questions:
- Discuss the difference between cost and value in healthcare.
- Describe how a fee-for-service model affects individual patients and how it affects the U.S. health care system as a whole.
- Identify some preventative measures that might have helped improve the quality of life for the patients in this video.
- If you could create a health care system from scratch, explain what you would do differently than the situation presented in this video. (For example, how would you address the 20 percent of patients who account for 80 percent of the cost?)
- Describe the nurses’ role in cost containment. How do nurse case managers impact patient care? Explain how they might contribute to healthcare cost savings.
