communication can help awareness of health risks, health solutions and also provide motivation and skills needed to reduce these risks. Good health communication between the provider (who is the sender of the message) and the patient (receiver of the message) can affect the outcome of one’s visit and can also determine how the receiver perceives the care that was given to them.
Health care communication is shaped by many influences including personal goals, skills, cultural orientation, situational factors and consideration of people’s feelings (Du Pre, 2005). Health care communication is a huge factor in the health care workplace because it gives knowledge to the health care

Another way that the new reforms will increase health care utilization is, for the first time part- time employees will be able to have coverage. If a part-time worker’s job does not offer health insurance they may qualify to get lower cost health insurance based on income and household size ("Healthcare.gov", n.d.). Because of this more people may be eligible to receive coverage through Medicaid. The new reforms also make a drastic change to

The word autonomy is derived from the Greek autos, which mean “self”, and nomos “rule” where it is originally referred to the self-rule or self-governance of independent city-states. Autonomy is the right to determine one’s own actions, behaviors and it is a position of freedom but not all freedom is autonomy. For example, it’s easier for the self-employed to accomplish the need for autonomy than for other workers. In health care, the right of patients to make decisions about their medical care without their health care provider trying to affect the decision.

surveys can allow the health care provider determine if a patient is improving from the baseline. Using this tool health care providers and quality improvement teams can determine if a patient outcomes are trending in a positive or negative direction. The strength of this tool is the ability to have current data on the progress of a patient or quality measure and the ability to make adjustments to correct the direction of the patient’s progress. A weakness in the survey is not all auditors collect information in the same process.

I personally agree with the frustration that the Houston workers have towards this wellness program. Being pressured to give up your confidential medical history is wrong and should only be discussed with your health care provider. In that case, discussing such things with a health care provider cannot be discussed by them because it is in fact illegal according to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). To be asked for personal information for an online wellness program is a red flag as it is and if the Houston workers don’t want to participate in that, they should not have to nor should they be charged an extra $300 a year. If they already have medical coverage, they should be required to prove it to their employer, not pay extra because they don’t want to be a part of a wellness program.

Provider Organization PPO is one of three main types of managed-care plans. It is a fee-for service plan that contracts with medical care providers who provide services for discounted fees to enrollees. If these providers have contracted with the plans they are paid more, but if they have not contracted with the plans they are covered at a lesser payment rate ("The Private Health Insurance Market", 2015). Payment of a premium and sometimes copay for visits are required for PPOs. Primary care physicians are not required to oversee patient’s care for a PPO and referrals to specialist are not required. The premium and copay for a PPO plan is much higher compared to an HMO or POS plan. There are many
