The Forces Affecting the System

The forces, which have affected the development of the health care system in the United States, are economics, technology and legal. The functioning of the health care system in economic development has become an influential issue. Health care is a predominant industry in the United States and is expected to develop further. Health care performance influences the economic growth in several rural communities. The health care system could be an influential organization and supplier of economic development or unimportant segment of the local economic model (Shinberger, 2005). ...view middle of the document...
The effects of economic importance and surges are experimental precisely, and can surface in less obvious ways that can vary markedly across markets. In a system where employment-based coverage plays a dominant role, understanding the impact of economic shocks such as the current recession presents difficult analytical issues (Michael Chernew, 2009).
The second force is data, and interaction technology. The (IT) information technology is the influence to succeed significant quality development. The use of (IT) information technology can enhance the approach for communication, which deliver facts, results, and decision making.
The United States doesn’t supply health care for the nation using methods supporting the technologically globe. The alternative for ensuring coverage supporting citizens; The United States depends on a mixed system of market-based organizations, which allows covered citizens’ future chances to get coverage as a term of employment, at some point qualified citizens’ can buy different policies and can get coverage from Medicaid. A relatively small number of those under age 65 – about 7 percent – purchase coverage in the individual market, and about two-and-a-half times that many – today roughly 45 million people – lack any kind of health insurance whatsoever (Kelton, 2007). The number of Americans without insurance would be even more staggering in the absence of government programs, such as Medicaid and which have provided insurance for millions of low-income families (particularly children) when their employment-based coverage was lost In total, the government picks up the tab for almost 18 percent of the non-elderly population. Many of the law’s relevant provisions take effect in 2014. Our research suggests that when employers become more aware of the new economic and social incentives embedded in the law and of the option to restructure benefits beyond dropping or keeping them, many will make dramatic changes. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that only about 7 percent of employees currently covered by employer-sponsored insurance (ESI) will have to switch to subsidized-exchange policies in 2014. Political forces terminated the discussion of the mutual health maintenance organizations’ (Gaynor, 2013)
The percentage of development in health care disbursements in the United States has exceeded the development access in the gross domestic product (GDP), population, and price increase, decades. “Relating the access of 1940 and 1990, the yearly level of development in tangible health cost per capita span starting at 3.6% in the 1960s to 6.5% in the 1990s” (unknown). Compatibly, the segment of gross domestic products reported the health care expenses surged from 4.5% in 1940 to 12.2% in 1990. In 2005 health care expenses was close to $2 trillion, or $6,697 per capita, which represents 16% of gross domestic products (Kelton, 2007). The sustained...
