Health Care industry presentation by Rick Carter, Chairman of Equation Consulting

The challenges and opportunities of restructuring the healthcare industry in the United States.
For the past two decades there has been major economic changes in the health care system in the United States, but there has been no solution for the basic problem of cost control. The challenges we face for restructuring the healthcare industry is rising health care costs, and the uninsured. During the past years the health cost has been raising. In 2001 the GDP reached 14.1 percent, and it’s still inspected to grow. In 2012 the GDP grew 17.7 percent. Managed care did restrain cost growth for a few years; however, the performance of individual health plan has not maintain it cost containment. The government will try to constrain Medicaid and Medicare spending, but it is unlikely that there will be an limit placed on health care spending like the one proposed by the Clinton administration. It is more likely to expect to see the public to pay more out of pocket for their health insurance and the care they receive. The uninsured has no health insurance. In the 1990’s, the amount of uninsured decreased.
Obamacare the right answer to curb the rising cost of healthcare? The Obamacare is the unofficial name for the patient protection and affordable care act that was signed into law on March 23, 2010 by the President Barack Obama. The Obamacare is currently estimated a net of $1.207 trillion dollars by 2025. Which includes the cost of Obamacare’s major insurance related provisions, but this is not all the accounts of the cost curbing measure in the law. As of March 2015, the net cost is projected at 1.207 trillion over the 2016-2025…...

Partially Completed Essay on O.M.A.M

...In this essay I will be discussing the point,” How does Steinbeck explore the use of dreams in Of Mice and Men”. I will review what each main character’s dreams are and how they attempted to fulfil or fulfilled their dreams, and how Steinbeck displays different emotions and sways how the reader feels about the novel. After this, I will compare how the irony of the title to how the book ends. The theme of the novel is set in the 1930’s, and the novel plays out over a period of around 3 days, with it starting with best friends George and Lennie out in the wild, with nothing. The first character I am going to review is George and what his original dreams are, and how far he has come to them by the end of the novel. He is the first character introduced and shows simple understanding of basic common sense (something which his partner-in-crime doesn’t have), “Lennie, for God’ sakes don’t drink so much”. Lennie at this point is drinking from a “green pool”, and George immediately realises the dangers and tells Lennie what to do, which is a sign of things to come. Georges dream is basically a carbon copy of the “the American dream”, and he realises that it is possible for himself and Lennie to achieve the dream – because he thinks (and perhaps more to the point hopes) that a combination of his brains, and Lennie’s brute force (which is plain to see throughout the novel) will lead them to where they want to be. Although at the end of the novel George has to kill Lennie, he decides......

Disabled - Not Completed

...Wilfred Owen, right at the start, informs the reader that the soldier is physically disabled, “legless, sewn at elbow”. “Waiting for dark” ‘dark’ creates a reference that not only he is waiting for the end of the day, but for the end of his time, ‘dark’ could also represent how the solider feels on the inside, empty, because due to his disability he can’t live life like he wants to, the ‘dark’-ness could also shield the soldier from the harsh reality of war as he can’t see it. The soldier reminiscences about his childhood; listening to the sounds of children. “Till gathering sleep had mothered them from him” implies that he is alluding to the end of their gleeful joy and innocence. The soldier feels nostalgic about his childhood. He could be feeling slightly jealous of these children as they still have their innocence and naivety where as for him war has robbed that from him. The soldier can dream no more because he knows the harsh reality. The words ‘dark’, ‘shivered’, ‘ghastly’ and ‘grey’ shows the loneliness and isolation of the soldier; this is seen as a sharp contrast to “About this time Town used to swing so gay” and “glow-lamps budded in the light blue trees” shows a sense of euphoria this implies that the days of romance and youth are all just a distant memory for the soldier, gone forever and he is without any joy or happiness. “Before he threw this knees away” highlights the fact that his loss of limbs did not lead him to any honour or sacrifice, it was like the...

Mary Quant: a Woman Who Completed Women and the Youth Culture

...Mary Quant: A woman who completed women and the youth culture During the 1960s, although Great Britain was referred as the empire on which the sun never sets, the nation itself was too busy in replicating and imitating culture and arts of France. Even the young nation, United States had the victory of seizing hegemony right after World War 2, which hurt the Great Britain’s pride. Not only the nation itself but also the people of Great Britain desperately wanted something “British-like,” something of their own. Furthermore, the social issues for wanting individualism, having a will to express their own selves, and second wave of feminism, more liberated life styles for women, erupted across the Western countries. New definitions of youth and femininity were epitomized through fashion typically created by Mary Quant, a British fashion designer. She had not only helped translating a generation of women, but also helped the failing British fashion industry into a thriving commercialism. Mary Quant was born in London, 1934. She studied illustration at Goldsmith College of Art and met her future husband, Alexander Plunket Greene and a former solicitor, Archie Mcnair. When she failed to become an art teacher, she teamed up with her husband and Mcnair to open up a boutique called Bazaar in Kings Road, London. In the beginning, she planned to buy clothes from the private wholesalers and sell it as retail items at her boutique, but with the limited designs,......

If You Completed the Lead Self Instrument, Would You Be Able to Assess Your Leader's Style? Why, or Why Not?

...If you completed the LEAD Self instrument, would you be able to assess your leader's style? Why, or why not? With the LEAD Self instrument for leadership studies I can measure the three aspects of leaders’ behavior. First one is 'leadership style'. In this measurement, leadership style can be divided into primary style and secondary style. In primary style of leadership, leaders are more comfortable and most likely to use basic behavioral pattern when attempting to influence the activities of others. On the other hand, in secondary style of leadership, leaders are not comfortable with their styles so that they tend to use on occasion when the favorite style or primary style doesn’t work. Second one is 'style range or flexibility'. Style range is the extent to which leaders are able to vary their leadership styles. Leaders differ in their ability in different situations. Although different leaders have different leadership styles, some leaders tend to be effective only in one leadership style and some tend to be good more than one leadership style according to the situations. This kind of measurement could be helpful for assessing leaders’ leadership styles. Third one is 'style adaptability.Style adaptability refers to the degree to which leaders are able to vary their style appropriately to the demand of a given situation. In this measure, it doesn’t matter which styles are going to be used, but it only matters how this style is going to fit the situation. Thus,......

Pm/598 Earner Value Analysis

...Value Analysis compares the planned work by the stakeholders with what have actually been achieved by the Scanner Project to determine if the schedule, cost, and accomplished work is progressing according to the plan. Work completed by the Scanner Project is said to be ‘Earned Value' (EV) while what we planned to use on the project is the Planned Value (PV) and Actual Value (AV) is the real value which was spent on the completed project. Planned Value, Actual Value and Earned Value were then used to calculate the project Cost Variance and Schedule Variance for each activity, Cost Variance (CV) is what was completed by the project compared to the project activity planned cost while Schedule Variance (SV) is the work completed by the project compared to the planned schedule. The whole Scanner had planned to spend 420 on the whole project but upon completion the Scanner Project value of the work completed was 395 while the costs incurred in completing all the project activities was 476. On calculating the Schedule Variance by getting the difference between Earned value and Planned Value the SV for the whole project was -25 which means that the project was behind schedule and more time was spent on the project or will be needed for the project to be completed. Cost Variance was also calculated by getting the difference between the Earned Value and Actual Value which was -81 which means the project was over budget and more resources were spent would be required for the project to...

The Following Data (in Thousands of Dollars) Have Been Taken from the Accounting Records of [Company] for the Just Completed Year

...Clark paints capital budgeting decision clark paints capital budgeting decision ac505 acc505 acc/505 acc 505 Clark Paints: The production department has been investigating possible ways to trim total production costs. One possibility currently being examined is to make the paint cans instead of purchasing them. The equipment needed would cost $200,000, with a disposal value of $40,000, and it would be able to produce 5,500,000 cans over the life of the machinery. The production department estimates that approximately 1,100,000 cans would be needed for each of the next five years. In addition to the purchase cost of the equipment, $15,000 would be needed to train three new employees in the production process. These three individuals would be full-time employees working 2,000 hours per year and earning $12.00 per hour. They would also receive the same benefits as other production employees, 18% of wages, in addition to $2,500 of health benefits. It is estimated that the raw materials will cost 25¢ per can and that other variable costs would be 5¢ per can. Since there is currently unused space in the factory, no additional fixed costs would be incurred if this proposal is accepted. It is expected that cans would cost 45¢ each if purchased from the current supplier. The company's minimum rate of return (hurdle rate) has been determined to be 12% for all new projects, and the current tax rate of 35% is anticipated to remain unchanged. The pricing for a gallon of paint, as well......
