Prior to engaging in this discussion, please read Chapters 13 and 14 in the text and review any relevant Instructor Guidance. It is suggested that you review the recommended articles to glean any helpful information. Analyze and comment on economic analyses of health administrative innovations that are germane to the provision of health services. How have these innovations become more important in health care delivery within the context of the Affordable Care Act? Develop a list of similarities and differences between cost benefit analysis and cost effectiveness analysis as they pertain to specific health care service demands. Compare and contrast economic challenges and incentives as they relate specifically to cost benefit and cost effectiveness analyses.
Guided Response: Read several of your classmatesâ€™ posts and provide a substantive written response to at least two of your peers. Discuss whether or not you agree with the conclusions provided in your classmateâ€™s initial post. Choose one aspect with which you disagree and offer an alternative that illustrates innovations in health care delivery. Explain why this alternative would be a better option and provide at least one peer-reviewed reference outside of your textbook to support your position. You must also comment specifically on one aspect of your classmateâ€™s post with which you agree. Provide a brief explanation as to why the statements were effective, and support your opinion and assertions with appropriate research. In addition to responding to at least two other studentsâ€™ posts, it is recommended that you reply to at least one person who responded to your original post by either respectfully defending your conclusions or by listing how you might implement the changes your classmate suggested.
