Population Health Management in Action
The common theme of the case below is population health management, IT and data management needs under value-based payment.
This case involves Bon Secours Virginia Medical Group, a large multi-specialty group practice located in Richmond, VA and serving 25,000 patients. Bon Secours has been a leader in transforming care delivery and was an early participant in the Medicare Shared Savings Program. The organization has since signed value-based contracts with several large commercial payers. Bon Secours’s strategy for its value-based care is its medical home initiative, designed to re-engineer practices by establishing physician-led care teams, care coordination activities, and shared clinical responsibilities across the care team. Nurse care managers are embedded in the care team. They assume a leadership role in patient outreach and in facilitating care and coordination.
To achieve Bon Secours’s goal of achieving quality outcomes and financial success, the organization has employed several health IT tools and capabilities including patient registries, risk stratification, automated outreach to discharged patients, and use of EHR/PHR records for which patients access clinical results and communicate with providers. Important challenges and lessons learned are discussed and include gaining physician buy-in for re-engineering practice workflow, paying for the transition to value-based care, and expanding implementation of PHM tools and strategies for measuring quality and performance.
I provided this case study as an example of how a large institution adopted population health management tools and strategies to address the preventive and chronic health needs of patient populations.
Please read chapter 4 prior to answering the discussion questions.
Instructions:
Please identify the elements of PHM that are important to managing care more effectively.
How is PHM engaging patients in managing their health and care?
Is it being done cost-effectively?
To what extent does social media play a role in PHM?

Part 1
The Environment: What two top environmental risk issues (provided below) do you envision will likely have the greatest impact upon the quality of future healthcare services across the U.S. health sector? Why do you see these priorities as most important, meriting your attention as a future healthcare leader?
As used here, “environment” means the circumstances, objects, or conditions by which the health/healthcare sector is surrounded, NOT the climate, air, water, pollution, etc.
1. Economic condition sector- levels and rates of employment, inflation, growth, investment, and other economic circumstances in which your organization exists (not financial resources or money for your specific organization)
2. Market Sector- actual and potential customers, clients and users of your organizations products and services.

Review the lecture (see attached).
The term “managed care” refers to several different forms of healthcare provision intended to ensure quality care for people in America at lower costs. In 1973, the Health Maintenance Organization Act was signed by President Nixon and funding for HMO expansion was provided to employers willing to provide health insurance for employees. HMOs were the first true form of
managed care.
MCOs have gone through many changes over the years, some of which have been beneficial and others that have not been
successful. After a thorough research of credible sources from the Internet, please answer the following questions:
1.) What is the purpose of an MCO?
2.) What are the major differences between MCOs, Health Managed Organizations (HMOs), Preferred Provider Organizations
(PPOs), and Exclusive Provider Organizations (EPOs)?
3.) MCOs provide monetary incentives to physicians who keep the costs of caring for patients as low as possible. Do you feel it is ethical? Why or why not?

What does succession planning entail and what are its essential steps?
Are there any disadvantages to using a nine-box grid for succession planning?
Would you have any difficulty in categorizing anyone who reports or has reported to you into one of the boxes?
If you never managed a team, think about employees you have worked with in the past and how you would categorize them.
Do you think most people frequently move from one box to another or do most people tend to stay in one box for long periods of their careers?

These need to answer for a discussion post. This is for a Medical procedures class.
1. Is a difference between medical ethics and business ethics? Since ethics are based on right and wrong decisions, how might a person’s upbringing influence their perception of right and wrong?
2. Maslow believed humans were not violent by nature but would become aggressive when needs were not being met. There are many recent acts of violence reported in the news – do any of these support Maslow’s theory?
3. Is “advising” within the scope of practice for a medical assistant? Is it legal to “advise” patients in the state of California? Explain your answer.

Assignment Details Scenario: Toxic Managers, Harassment, Hostile Work Environmen

Assignment Details
Scenario: Toxic Managers, Harassment, Hostile Work Environment, Retaliation, Discrimination, and Bullying
Mr. Joseph is the nurse manager for the MedSurgical Unit at North Central Medical Hospital. Nurse Candice says that he has made the unit into a hostile working environment for her. She has refused to get involved in an inappropriate relationship with Mr. Joseph for the past 3 years. Candice is a much-disciplined worker who takes her work very seriously. She had a slight disability and required reasonable accommodation to do her job. Recently, Mr. Joseph started writing up Candice for every minor infraction. He had condoned and previously overlooked most of these infractions, hoping that Candice would come around.
Mr. Joseph frequently comments about Candice’s race, religion, sex, age, and genetic disposition in a sarcastic manner, which was an embarrassment. Her peers often ridicule her about Mr. Joseph’s behavior. A few weeks ago, Mr. Joseph denied Candice promotions and bonuses. He often finds it hard to approve her request for FMLA leave of absence, citing staff shortage.
One day, Candice decided to bring the matter to the chief nursing officer (CNO), citing a hostile working environment, undue hardship, and bullying. The CNO talked to Mr. Joseph, scolded him, and demanded that he apologize to Candice. Although Mr. Joseph apologized, his behavior took another turn. He started retaliating against Candice. The situation became unbearable for Candice, so she decided to sue the North Central Medical Hospital management for harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and bullying. She filled an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaint and demanded a million dollars for her pain and suffering.
You have been hired by North Central Medical Hospital management to provide training on employee relations issues (especially violence in the workplace), including the following:
Sexual harassment
Hostile work environment
Discrimination
Retaliation
Toxic managers
Reasonable accommodation
Other employment laws
Prepare a 15-slide PowerPoint presentation addressing the following:
What are the U.S. Supreme Court’s views on retaliation, and how are they used in the workplace?
What strategies could healthcare managers use to prevent and remedy discrimination in the workplace?
What is the importance of periodic reviews of human resource practices and processes in hospitals?
What is the impact of disciplinary actions, the basis for taking them, and the fundamental due process on personnel management?
How do you explain the concept of reasonable accommodation and undue hardship?
What are the differences between sexual harassment and a hostile work environment?
What strategic and operational approaches can HR managers use to resolving complex employee relation issues?
Would you apply any of these strategies in this case? If yes, how? If not, why not?
Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, you will need the following:
Title slide: Remember the running head. The title should be in all capitals.
Length: 15 slides minimum
Body slides: This begins on the slide following the title slide and must be double-spaced (be careful not to triple- or quadruple-space between paragraphs). The typeface should be 12-pt.

The deliverable length of the body of your presentation for this assignment is 15 slides. In-body academic citations to support your decisions and analysis are required. A variety of academic sources is encouraged.
Reference slide: References that align with your in-body academic sources are listed on the final slide of your presentation. The references must be in APA format using appropriate spacing, hanging indent, italics, and uppercase and lowercase usage as appropriate for the type of resource used. Remember, the Reference slide is not a bibliography but a further listing of the abbreviated in-body citations used in the paper. Every referenced item must have a corresponding in-body citation.
