Managing Health Systems


Managing Health Systems
Identify health services laws or regulations based on: 1. a utilitarian philosophy, 2. a deontological
philosophy, and 3. elements of both. How compatible are these philosophies when included in the
same law or regulation? How might the differences of these schools of thought affect your work,

your organization. or your profession? Objective to be covered with this is to provide an in-depth
understanding of the ”systems framework” of the U.S. health services systems including: 1.

foundations of systems (health behavior, social norms, culture. values. and political historical
developments) 2. structures of healthcare systems (providers. institutions and services) 3. systems
resources (financing and payment mechanisms); and 4. system outcomes (cost, access and quality)
