I have reviewed your assessment #2 submission and errors are seen. Your paper is complete with a 3 page assessment template discussing the continuum of patient care, care quality, and communication between physician practices and hospitals.

Please see attached grading rubric with specific feedback/comments.

 You have used the course resources along with a minimum of three peer-reviewed articles based on your own research, and completed the linked assessment template to address the following:

· Describe where the physician practice and the hospital fall on the continuum of patient care.

· Analyze how providers at each location try to return their patients to their highest level of functioning.

· Explain how a physician’s practice communicates with the hospital to foster high-quality, efficient, and effective patient care.

However, your responses lack substance, facts, and details that fully address all parts of the assignment criteria. Also, you barely analyzed three peer-reviewed articles that each discuss one of the topics above.

· Description or summary presents the what of the article, but the analysis will pursue the question of so what?

· Why do these ideas matter and/or how are these ideas connected?

· What are the potential gaps or questions that remain?

In your assessment template, you have organized your paper with the following headings:

· Title Page.

· Agenda.

· Introduction.

· Continuum of Care.

· Care Quality.

· Operational Approach.

· Conclusion.

· References.

 

Also, mechanical/formatting errors are noted (See attached). I have added some additional content to each criterion for supplemental reading. I am looking forward to reading your next assessment submissions. If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me.

In healthcare, the continuum of care is now being used to describe how healthcare providers follow a patient from preventive care, through medical incidents, rehabilitation, and maintenance. Depending on the patient, this might involve the use of acute care hospitals, ambulatory care, or long-term care facilities. The coordinated effort to medical care means better outcomes for the patient.

The United States healthcare system is in the midst of rapid change. The passage of the Affordable Care Act has accelerated the transition from fee-for-service reimbursement models to payment models that reward providers for better outcomes and efficient delivery of care. Meanwhile, the number of Americans with at least one chronic health condition is rising. A Commonwealth Fund International Survey found that 23% of patients with a chronic illness saw four or more doctors over the last year and 46% reported taking four or more prescriptions on a regular basis. These patients have higher than average healthcare utilization rates, making the management of their care particularly vital, yet complicated. The successful management of patients with chronic conditions requires care that is well-coordinated between providers, patients, and the care team. The Institute of Medicine has remarked that care coordination â��has the potential to improve effectiveness, safety, and efficiency of the American health care systemâ�� and can result in higher survival rates, fewer emergency department visits, and lower medication costs. Furthermore, a Health Affairs policy brief found that the lack of coordinated care is costly and created $25 to $45 billion in wasteful spending in 2011 through avoidable complications and unnecessary hospital admissions.

INTEGRATED DELIVERY SYSTEMS (IDSs) is a network of organizations that provides or arranges to provide a coordinated continuum of services to a defined population and is willing to be held clinically and fiscally accountable for the outcomes and health status of the population serviced. Effective treatment over the continuum of care requires attention to many moving parts. Not only does the medical care need to be coordinated between a variety of providers, the financing and record-keeping must also be efficient and accessible. The advent of electronic health records managed care (quality of care), and payer networks have helped the logistics involved in supporting the continuum of care.
