Economic Dynamic of Health Care Delivery Models
This week’s first discussion forum will focus on persons diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.
Select an existing program or service delivery model in your community or surrounding environment (e.g., free-standing clinic, specialized treatment center) that provides services to those impacted by HIV/AIDS. Describe both, direct as well as indirect, costs associated with the program and how the program is evaluated (cost-benefit or cost-effective analysis). Chapter 7 of the course text defines these terms in more detail.
Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by a minimum of two scholarly sources beyond your course text. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response (minimum of 100 words) to at least two of your peers. How does your selected program differ from that of your classmates? What are your impressions of your peer’s selected programs? Share your constrictive insight as you respond to the analyses made by your colleagues.
