discussion board 1374

Topic 1: Economics, Policy, and Change

Please think about the change you are proposing (implementation of a discharge tool to decrease unnecessary visits to the emergency deparment due to not providing proper discharge instructions) within the context of economics and health policy. How will these concepts influence your ability to effect change and how will your project influence a return on investment and health care outcomes for the community? (Talk about the reimbursement the ER would not get for repetitive unnecessary visits, talk about all the money patients and hospitals will save by following discharge instructions accordingly) etc.
