How has the local, state, or federal government promoted economic growth in your area? In what ways do you think it was a success or a failure?
PLEASE EXPLAIN WHETHER YOU AGREE WITH MY CLASSMATE RESPONSE TO THE ABOVE QUESTION AND WHY? (A MININUM OF 125 WORDS)
One state economic policy for the state of North Carolina is to divide the state into economic zones. The easiest way to divide the state is through the counties, as each county maintains statistical analysis of their economics. There are 100 counties in North Carolina and the state governor, Roy Cooper addresses each county in a tier system. There are three tiers, the bottom 40, mid 40 and top 20 (tier 1, 2, and 3 respectively). Each is divided into economic activities and the counties located in the bottom and mid 40 are incorporated into various state programs and economically encouraging activities. Targeting the less prosperous areas help build up and define a better living for parts of the state in the most need. This type of economic encouragement has lent major companies developing in NC. Google established a headquarter office at a cost of 1.2 billion dollars, employees 110 and gave 4 million dollars to local schools. All of this was built in the tier 1 county, Lenoir county.
This program of incentives is a success and will continue to be so as Amazon is looking for a headquarters in NC as well. Currently NC houses 14 fortune 500 company headquarters and 26 fortune 1000 company headquarters. The low cost of living and economically thriving business climate with a three percent tax and with access to four international airports make NC an ideal place to grow a business. The state governance allows many incentives to increase and thrive in the business industry that creates jobs for the local people and increase the quality of life for the citizens. An added benefit to companies in NC, is some of the nation’s top-rated schooling systems in the University of North Carolina system, Duke University, Chapel Hill, and numerous others increase qualified workplace pool.

External drivers are often related to changes in the administrative or political setting of the environment, and the leadership of the organization. Discuss with your peers the impact of political pressure, the impact of government and private agencies related to how financial incentives are distributed for meeting specific standards.
Type of care provided
Care in this type of setting is delivered by physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and ad
vanced practice professionals. This area of health care is the most widely used, and it is a major focus
of the Affordable Care Act of 2010, focusing on primary care providers and decreasing the focus on the
utilization of specialty providers.
This primary care organization has a high focus on creating an environment for their most valuable as
Last year, as a result of gaining more feedback from the employees, the facility contracted the services
of a third-party organization to conduct an employee survey. The result was some surprising comments
from employees regarding missed opportunities for promotions, special assignments, and skills certifica
The Director of Human Resources, meeting with the executive staff to review the survey results, places
an emphasis on some ongoing problems and create some action plans for resolving and rectifying the
employee concerns. He states that the organization has a very good performance management system
that includes good rating instruments and clearly stated policy and procedures for ensuring each em
ployee receives fair and constructive feedback for the review period.
Under initial scrutiny, the performance management system seems to indicate that the Director of Hu
man Resources is correct: The system is almost perfect. However, upon closer examination and further
analysis, it appears that some managers use the system as designed, but others use a more preferred
approach that fits their “team.”
When considering that noncompliance with the current system could result in wrongful terminations and
failure to gain a promotion or new assignment, how would you address the following:
Are performance evaluations required by law? Why or why not?
How should managers receive special training in the use of the appraisal system?
How would you hold the managers accountable for the proper use of performance appraisal systems?
How do you determine if a performance appraisal system is effective or ineffective?
How do you determine the factors used in the evaluation of employee performance?
If the policy and rating instruments are “almost perfect,” what could be the primary cause of the prob
lems with the employees?
Given the feedback from the survey, what are the potential repercussions of the workplace culture?
APA format/2 Paragraphs
Employers are making an effort to involve employees more in their health care. This is evidenced by the increase in consumer-directed health plans being offered by employers today. Employers feel that the more informed and engaged an employee is, the lower their health care costs will be. Employee engagement is a way for employers to battle rising health care costs and outlook on managed care plans.
What managed care trends do you think affect employers today and which do you think has the greatest impact on employers? Explain your perspective with examples. Do these trends impact small and large employers the same or not?
Select a case involving physician healthcare fraud, and using APA format in a paper no longer than two pages, provide a brief summary of the case. Identify the statute, rule, regulation or law that the physician violated or allegedly violated (ie. Federal Anti-Kickback statute, False Claims Act) and how the fraud was identified. Recommend how a more stringent compliance plan at the healthcare organization could have detected and or prevented the fraud. Support your recommendations by providing which of the steps in effective compliance program would have best addressed the issue, based on your readings from the module.
Conduct a search of literature or online resources to find quality measures used in settings other than acute care facilities. Present your findings in a 2 page paper (written in APA format) that answers the following questions:
What type of quality measures can the organizations evaluate (process or outcomes)?
Is aggregate data publicly reported? If so, is there a website or other medium the report is published in?
Are these measures required to meet accreditation and/or licensure standards? Specify the requirements
Are the measures based on clinical, administrative and other sources, like patient satisfaction, or patient-reported outcomes?
Are benchmarking data available through an accrediting body, quality organization or professional association for facilities to compare their quality data?
Can the measures be used to evaluate patient safety, reduce risk or monitor healthcare utilization? Explain the aspects of quality the measures are focused on.
