“Decisions on Health Care Organization Alliances and Regulations” Please respond to the following:

From the e-Activity, distinguish the factors that are most important in carrying out a successful health care organization’s merger or acquisition. Defend at least two (2) reasons why health care organization alliances are sometimes necessary. Provide a rationale for your response.

Health care mergers and acquisitions can help hospitals and medical facilities work more together and manage care for improved patient results. For example, general provider offices and specialty medicine offices can work together providing each other referrals for patient care. Another reason health care alliance can be a good idea are capital needs and regulatory needs (Smidt & MacKenzie, 2015).

There are several actions to be taken, and trials to surmount, to conclude an efficacious healthcare merger or acquisition. Some of the most significant matters to consider include deal structure, due diligence, contractual protections and integration strategy (Smidt & MacKenzie, 2015).

Dispute or defend the idea that a government regulation system should be the main regulating body in health care. Predict two (2) consequences of the alternative regulating system being in control. Provide a rationale for your response.

Government regulation prevents market failure of the healthcare system. The government monitors the healthcare standards preventing poor service in private sectors. It also prevents discrimination. Private companies such as insurance companies discriminate against patients based on demographic issues and prior health issues. Further, private regulators are profit-based and offer cheaper services rather than quality services (Kling, 2007).

From the e-Activity, distinguish the factors that are most important in carrying out a successful health care organization’s merger or acquisition. Defend at least two (2) reasons why health care organization alliances are sometimes necessary. Provide a rationale for your response.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has made a profound change in the health care competitive landscape,one that Congress may not have intended. The emphasis on value-based, rather than service-based, reimbursement is shifting insurance risk from the payers to hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Most healthcare professionals agree that two strategies are proving critical to survival and prosperity: consolidation and specialization.

Providers seeking to improve quality and lower costs are also pursuing other types of affiliations, including joint ventures and joint operation agreements with organizations that have complementary specialties. These alternatives may provide a better way to provide higher quality offerings to patients,as well as increased revenues for the participating providers. The current mergers and acquisitions activity is driven by quality assurance and improvement concerns as much as by financial gain. Properly executed alignments (mergers,partnerships, and affiliations) can eliminate redundant costs, improve operating margins, diversity risk, and enhance access to capital and funding sources.

Dispute or defend the idea that a government regulation system should be the main regulating body in health care. Predict two (2)) consequences of the alternative regulating system being in control. Provide a rationale for your response.

Regulation plays a major role in the health care industry and health care insurance coverage. The various regulatory bodies protect the public from a number of health risks and provide numerous programs for public health and welfare. Together, these regulatory agencies protect and regulate public health at every level. Health care regulations are developed and implemented not only by all levels of government but by private organizations as well.

Health care regulations and standards are necessary to ensure compliance and to provide safe health care to every individual who accesses the system. The health care regulatory agencies in turn monitor practitioners and facilities, provide information about industry changes, promote safety and ensure legal compliance and quality services. Essentially, all areas of health care, including but not limited to physicians, medical directors, health care computer technology companies,health care facilities and pharmaceutical companies, are subject to regulatory review and compliance. It is important that you recognize which regulations apply to you and seek clarification as needed in order to adequately comply with those regulations.
