Discussion Question-

This module’s activities explored quality of care issues. Prepare for this discussion:

  • Go to Medicare’s Find & compare doctors, hospitals, & other providers, and click one of the categories (Hospitals, Nursing homes, etc.).
  • Identify three providers near where you live, clicking “Add to Compare” for each of the providers.
  • Once three providers have been selected, click “Compare Now.”
  • Identify a health issue included in the selected category that has meaning to you.
    • For example, the “Timely and Effective Care” tab for the Hospital compare site is a good place to start.
  • Explore the quality of care measures that are targeted at improving health outcomes for patients with that health issue.

For this discussion, in at least 300 words:

  • Describe the health issue you selected and the quality measure(s) you reviewed.
  • Compare and contrast the 3 providers and identify which provider you would go to for treatment if you had that issue.
  • Explain in detail why you selected that specific provider.

For this discussion, you will need to post your initial thread before you will be able to see the posts of other students.
