HSM 544 The Role of Nonprofits in Healthcare Week 4 Discussions 1

How does the role of nonprofit healthcare organizations differ from that of for-profit healthcare organizations? Which entity is better suited to meet the growing demand for health services by the aging population, and why?

Do you think one type of entity is more effective in delivering healthcare than the other? Why do you think this might be the case?  What might the differences between a county entity and a non-profit one? Neither will pay taxes, but what might be the operational differences?

If there are for-profit organizations, with potential for greater resources and profits in healthcare, why would any healthcare organization be non-profit?

There are healthcare organizations in many areas of healthcare that are organized as for-profits or non-profits.  The type of service provided does not dictate which status an entity will choose.  For the class, what do you think is the most important factor in this decision?

Health policy is moving closer (in distinct increments) to a broader role in healthcare, and public health insurance can take many forms. What do you envision the government’s role to be (e.g., a continued regulation on specific aspects or a more sweeping policy that leads to public health insurance)?  In your comments distinguish between state and federal policy.

Healthcare is such a large public good with substantial governmental and societal investment.  There is disagreement about what direction healthcare policy should go but the basic objectives have been consistent-contain costs, improve quality and access.  For the class, why do you think there is such a lack of consensus in how to achieve those objectives?  Is there any way that healthcare and healthcare policy can be stabilized, notwithstanding the political climate?
