International Health Care Assignments

International Health Care Assignments

For this coursework, you need to produce report of a survey of the healthcare system in the country of your residence. As a suggested title for your report, you can use the assignment title and include your surveyed country within it, so for example: ‘A Survey of the Healthcare System in the India’.
Although the report should focus on one specific country, you may make comparisons with other countries so as to derive a critical analysis. Statistics or other forms of concrete evidence should be presented to support the statements made in your discussions and analysis. The report should follow the normal academic requirements for ethics, plagiarism, and referencing. blankThe report will need to cover two of the following three subjects of healthcare, according to the principles covered within the units. There is a practical element within each task where you need to devise solutions for certain problems. The details are as follows.

Choose two out of the following three tasks.
1. Healthcare Service Management

o Describe various types of healthcare services that exist in the chosen country, and explain how service providers work together and allocate resources in order to cater for the growing needs of health and social care services. Elaborate on the various key entities of the healthcare service infrastructure in the country, and discuss how any identified parts of management and leadership play an important role in the healthcare system within the country. As part of this you should make comparisons and critical judgments about the effectiveness (or otherwise) of how particular services or infrastructure are managed and organised.

o Practical Element: Identify and evaluate structural implications, if any, and explain with justification how certain challenges can be addressed. Proposed solutions must be evidence-based, such as based on relevant secondary data, research publications, and other relevant sources. As above, aim to produce comparisons or critical assessments in support of any suggestions or solutions that you propose, giving examples or references where appropriate.

o Learning Outcome Assessed:

§ Assess critically and understand the developing needs for health and social care services, and critically assess the issues, including that of an ageing population, under limited and defined resources.

§ Assess and reflect critically on the evolving needs for healthcare resources, and derive appropriate and effective evidence-based solutions for the requirements and needs of the stakeholders.

2. Healthcare Finance

o Identify different sources of financing for healthcare recipients within the chosen country, with specific focus on public and private expenditure. As part of this, describe the major health plans that are offered to the public, the community, and individuals, and critically analyse the benefits and the shortfalls of existing systems. Pinpoint milestone periods when major events have impacted the finance of healthcare in the country: this may be achieved by identifying key events, their role, and their impact on particular aspects of financial composition.

o Practical Element: Explore the option of using PPP model as the alternative funding source for healthcare management in the country, with the demonstration of a specific case study. Provide justification for the potentially of PPP to be applied using suitable evidence or examples where possible.

o Learning Outcome Assessed:

§ Assess and appraise critically alternative funding sources for healthcare management.

§ Assess critically and understand the developing needs for health and social care services, and critically assess the issues, including that of an ageing population, under limited and defined resources.blank3. Healthcare Innovation

o Critically review the main establishments of the healthcare industry in your chosen country. Explain how they contribute to the healthcare service provision and make their respective impact or contribution to the provision of care, and make comparisons of their relative benefits and limitations. Pay special attention to sectors that may promote healthcare innovation via new technologies – give examples to explain what they are used for, how they complement or expand the provision care, and make assessments of their relative contributions to general health provision.

o Practical Element: Provide a brief case study for the chosen country to evaluate how healthcare technology has advanced healthcare provision in certain ways, whether it be in the form of reducing costs, improving efficiency and effectiveness, or enhancing the general quality of life. If the country is currently limited in its use of healthcare technology, explain why this is the case and the opportunities that may exist as a result. Provide suitable evidence where possible to justify your analysis. For the case study, you may choose an organization in which you have direct experience or first-hand knowledge of.

o Learning Outcome Assessed:

§ Assess and reflect critically on the evolving needs for healthcare resources, and derive appropriate and effective evidence-based solutions for the requirements and needs of the stakeholders.

§ Assess and review critically the potential opportunities for improved efficiencies through technological solutions, and reflect on the relationship of technology to healthcare requirements, with particular reference to organisations with which one is concerned.
