Chamberlain College of Nursing NR-506 Health Care Policy
Drivers of High Performance Healthcare Systems (graded)
Select two drivers (for example quality, cost, and access) of high performance healthcare systems and apply it to your current work situation. The application could demonstrate the presence of the driver in a positive manner or it could acknowledge the presence of a concern.
Cost and quality are two important drivers with healthcare. Unfortunately, everything has an associated cost factor.
The question becomes how do you balance expense to ensure good quality?
