One of the trends marking the continuing transformation of the U.S. health care industry is the dramatic increase in the pace of competition. The heightened competition is taking place among hospitals, among health plans, among physician groups, among drug companies, between physicians and hospitals, and between hospitals and health plans.
Prepare a three- to five-page paper (excluding the title and reference page). A comprehensive paper will include the following:
Describe the different forms of competition that take place in health care amongst the various types of health care organizations.
Evaluate the benefits and pitfalls of competition in health care and suggest alternatives if competition were not the prime drivers of operations in the U.S. health care system.
Explain the essence of successful competition and the use of competitive intelligence.
Describe the influence competition has on the services offered by health care organizations and the choices patients have.
You should incorporate and cite a minimum of two industry related sources into your paper, with at least one from ProQuest, on competition in healthcare. You must follow APA guidelines.
