Post an explanation of the economics of healthcare. In your post, please be sure to address the following for the two concepts related to economics that you selected:

“I went to school to take care of patients. Why do I care about economics?”
“The hospital I work for is constantly looking at ways to reduce costs, that shouldn’t be my problem. I need to care for my patients and do it in the best way possible.”

Whether you like it or not, if you are a health professional, you are an active participant in the healthcare economic system. It is going to be important for you to understand how your organization operates and why some decisions are made that can affect your daily routine, work, and patient care. To fully understand, it is helpful to look at general business economic principles and how those are similar to and different from healthcare economic principles. As you will read this week’s Learning Resources, while the terms and general meanings are the same, it will help you understand the economic forces and relationships that impact the decisions that you make, the hospital makes or the insurance companies make as everyone tries to balance quality patient care with making a profit and staying open in a competitive healthcare market.

To Prepare:

  • Review the Learning Resources for this week.
  • Consider the following concepts related to economics:
    • Supply & Demand
    • Elasticity & Surplus

    • Competitive Markets & Economies of Scale
    • Cost Shifting
  • Select two concepts related to economics from the list provided to focus on for this Discussion. (Note: Each bullet in the list is considered one concept)
