Forecasting and foreclosing futures: The temporal dissonance of advance care directives.

Advance care directives situate persons as rational and self-determining actors who can make anticipatory plans about their futures. This paper critically examines how people interpret individual and future-oriented approaches to medical decision-making with limited access to information and knowledge, and reduced opportunities to prepare and document their care preferences. Based on ethnographic research with Asian migrant families living in Adelaide, South Australia (August 2015-July 2018), it reveals a d...


What Women's Health Wants in Your Market.

Women are a key focus segment for health care organizations both because of the medical services they utilize as individuals and the influence they have on the health care of others. In one survey, 59% of women and 94% of working moms reported making or heavily influencing health care decisions for their entire families.

A critical analysis of health care purchasing arrangements in Kenya: A case study of the county departments of health.

Purchasing in health care financing refers to the transfer of pooled funds to health care providers for the provision of health care services. There is limited empirical work on purchasing arrangements and what is required for strategic purchasing in low- and middle-income countries. We conducted this study to critically assess the purchasing arrangements of the county departments of health (CDOH) who are the largest purchasers of health care in Kenya.


Changes in Health Insurance Coverage and Barriers to Health Care Access Among Individuals with Serious Psychological Distress Following the Affordable Care Act.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) aims to expand health insurance coverage and minimize financial barriers to receiving health care services for individuals. However, little is known about how the ACA has impacted individuals with mental health conditions. This study finds that the implementation of the ACA is associated with an increase in rate of health insurance coverage among nonelderly adults with serious psychological distress (SPD) and a reduction in delaying and forgoing necessary care. The ACA also red...

Formal home care use in Canada.

Formal home care services (those typically delivered by health care providers or volunteer organizations) are different from informal home care services (given by family, friends or neighbours), and thus represent a partial picture of all home care provided. Home care has been associated with decreased mortality, improved quality of life, and reduced hospitalizations and health care costs.

Authority of Health Care Providers To Practice Telehealth. Final rule.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is amending its medical regulations by standardizing the delivery of care by VA health care providers through telehealth. This rule ensures that VA health care providers can offer the same level of care to all beneficiaries, irrespective of the State or location in a State of the VA health care provider or the beneficiary. This final rule achieves important Federal interests by increasing the availability of mental health, specialty, and general clinical care for all ...

Navigating the Health Care System: An Adolescent Health Literacy Unit for High Schools.

Currently, no intervention concerning transition of health care responsibilities from parents to teens exists for adolescents in the general population. The purpose of this intervention was to evaluate teacher satisfaction and student knowledge gain of a health unit developed for adolescents on becoming their own health care advocates.

A framework for regional primary health care to organise actions to address health inequities.

Regional primary health-care organisations plan, co-ordinate, and fund some primary health-care services in a designated region.

Characteristics and Health Needs of Veterans with Other-than-Honorable Discharges: Expanding Eligibility in the Veterans Health Administration.

There has been nearly no research on the health of veterans with Other-than-Honorable (OTH) discharges because they have traditionally not been eligible for health care through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). However, the Secretary of the VA has recently expanded eligibility provisions to provide access to some VA health care services to veterans with OTH discharges to help address any urgent mental health care needs. It is unknown if veterans with OTH discharges have worse mental health and potent...

Determinants of health care utilisation: the case of Timor-Leste.

Health financing and delivery reforms designed to achieve universal health coverage (UHC) need to be informed by an understanding of factors that both promote access to health care and undermine it. This study examines the level of health care utilisation in Timor-Leste and the factors that drive it.

Addressing the Root Cause: Rising Health Care Costs and Social Determinants of Health.

The United States is the only high-income country that does not have publicly-financed universal health care, yet it has one of the world's highest public health care expenditures. This financial outlay is not bringing the desired result in health outcomes because the root cause is not being addressed: solving the systematic disparities and social determinants that lead to poor health and health inequities. Targeting resources for the most vulnerable populations and linking health care plans with community-...

Can Consumers Be Smarter Health Care Shoppers in the Quest for Cost Containment?

Lawmakers, health plans, and employers are increasingly shifting a greater portion of health care costs onto consumers in hopes that increased price sensitivity will make them become better health care shoppers. However, health care consumerism offers limited potential for system-wide cost containment and presents significant pitfalls for patients.

The association between organizational cultural competence and teamwork climate in a network of primary care practices.

A health system's commitment to delivering culturally competent care is essential in creating a culture of respect for patients, clinicians, and administrative staff. As the diversity of the health care workforce grows, gaining an understanding of the perspectives among different health care personnel and the value that they place on organizational cultural competence is a first step in developing more effective team environments.

Quality of Care in Patients With Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

The rising burden of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has the potential to have a negative impact on the quality of care delivered to patients with IBD. Quality of care has been described by the World Health Organization as "the extent to which health care services provided to individuals and patient populations improve desired health outcomes." Variation in care has been identified as a key barrier to achieving quality of care in IBD. Assessment of quality of care attempts to minimize variation in care. Qu...

Mindful organizing in patients' contributions to primary care medication safety.

There is a need to ensure that the risks associated with medication usage in primary health care are controlled. To maintain an understanding of the risks, health-care organizations may engage in a process known as "mindful organizing." While this is typically conceived of as involving organizational members, it may in the health-care context also include patients. Our study aimed to examine ways in which patients might contribute to mindful organizing with respect to primary care medication safety.

Purchased Behavioral Health Care Received by Military Health System Beneficiaries in Civilian Medical Facilities, 2000-2014.

Behavioral health conditions are a significant concern for the U.S. military and the Military Health System (MHS) because of decreased military readiness and increased health care utilization. Although MHS beneficiaries receive direct care in military treatment facilities, a disproportionate majority of behavioral health treatment is purchased care received in civilian facilities. Yet, limited evidence exists about purchased behavioral health care received by MHS beneficiaries. This longitudinal study (1) e...

Examining Women Veteran's Experiences, Perceptions, and Challenges With the Veterans Choice Program (VCP).

The Veterans Choice Program (VCP) was launched in 2014 to address the growing concerns about the timeliness and quality of Veterans Health Administration (VHA) care. Given that many sex-specific health services, such as mammography and maternity care, are not routinely provided in all VHA facilities, women Veterans may disproportionately rely on VCP care. Understanding the provision and coordination of VCP care is crucial in order to ensure that care is not fragmented across the 2 health care systems.

Notes on persistent challenges for basic health care in Brazil.

Based on the recognition of consistent strides in that direction, the article addresses four issues on some important challenges for the consolidation of the basic health care proposal: (1) the use of the term "basic health care" as opposed to the usual, hegemonic concept of "primary health care"; (2) the disconnect or mismatch between the polic...

Behavioral medicine concerns, which include health behavior change and coping with medical conditions, are common in primary care populations. Although there are evidence-based behavioral interventions that target a variety of behavioral medicine concerns, integrated behavioral health providers need interventions that are suff...

Employer Groups Pushing For Improving Maternal Health.

Given the startling statistic that the rate of women dying of pregnancy-and childbirth-related complications in the United States is increasing, it seems logical that the U.S. health system would focus on improving outcomes in this area of care. But not all health plans address this disparity in health care delivery.

Associations of CAHPS Composites With Global Ratings of the Doctor Vary by Medicare Beneficiaries' Health Status.

Care coordination among health care providers is essential for high-quality care and it is strongly associated with overall ratings of doctors. Care coordination may be especially important for sicker and chronically ill patients because of the multiple providers involved in their care. This study examines whether the association of care coordination with global ratings of one's personal doctor varies by number of chronic conditions and self-rated health.
