Improving Community Health

Hospitals have long been places people go when they are ill, going to have a baby, or to get a test.   

Not-for-profit hospitals, in order to keep that IRS status, have been required for the past few years to file a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years, along with a plan to address health needs, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. 

Advocacy for Health Care

There is a great deal of information coming from the news media and from members of Congress about healthcare.  Most, on both sides, is emotional rather than factual, with political rather than educational goals.  

In the meantime, we hear physicians concerned about reduced reimbusement.  We hear from hospitals concerned about their survival under a new health care initiative.  We also hear from organizations with broad public support, such as AARP.

This is an issue in which every business, group and organization in the US should have an interest: to make a plan work in the final bill in Washington that reflects the basic needs and desires of members of the public.  A "public option", meaning that there be an insurance plan, such as the one that members of Congress have, that can be offered by the US Government as well as commercial insurance plans appears essential, given national opinion.  Commercial insurance companies flourish in Britain, France and Switzerland.  In Britain, residents have a choice of the National Health Service insurance and commercial insurance as a supplementary policy.  Many get both, just as Medicare recipients have a commercial insurance as a supplement.  Commercial insurance should always be an option.

In the end, an American health plan that provides universal health care will be a compromise among all groups, businesses, politicians, health care providers, and individuals who may or may not have access to any health insurance.
