Introduction to Health Services and Research | PHE5005 S01


The partnership and the collaborations that Utica have identified in Davis and Gross article is that public partnership recommend an alternative example for pharmaceutical innovation in every difficult disease parts where there are significant public need and commercial interests. These areas have the ability to reduce the huge waste of ineffective drug development and try to support the necessary knowledge of pharmaceutical improvement. For instance, the article mentions how they need partnership plan that will work in competitive collaboration areas. The article includes that an affected patent may use to drive the pharmaceutical business to collaborate with the public and private determinations to act faster for certain disease cures. For example, the national data concerning asthma study the method the insurance coverage and the value of the disease care. The other way is that the children who are suffering with severe asthma will receive coverage faster than children with less forms of the condition. (Coker, Kaplan, and Chung, 2012). Another successful partnership is care management and Housing caring. It is extremely important due to the fact that a lot of helpless patients are really in demand of more extreme management. A study shows that “housing and care management program was associated with a substantial decrease in emergency room visits and hospital admissions. This partnership was also associated with societal cost-savings, providing a strong rationale”. These works offer support that human services plan can make a difference in improving great help. ( Basu et Al, 2012).

Research can also generate important data to guide policy-making, providing a new perspective on important health issues. Bharmal et al. “explored racial disparities in life expectancy, and found marked variation across states in the magnitude of racial differences in health”. ( Bharmal et al., 2012) The leadership qualities that made the partnerships successful are for example the application from Jacobs and Rathouz, they assess and change the value for the patient by having the telephonic interpreting instead of only having face to face meeting. They created the telephonic interpretation for Spanish speaking clients. They also provide video interpretation in the emergency department as well which can help the bilingual Spanish speaking patient in order to understand all the significant information for their health care. According to Jacobs “That video-based interpretation might provide a valuable combination of strengths of the current modes and permit more timely and effective interpretation services for patients in emergent care settings”. (Jacobs, 2012). Describe the leadership qualities the parties possessed that made these partnerships successful. The other example to demonstrate the leader qualities is by providing a “population-based perspective” which can notify to the patients a way to make great efforts on evaluating effective and significant area of health by allowing patient to have medal home. Because they found that considerable practices are lacked in patients’ registry tracking and these principals insinuation should provide better self-management and improvement. The scholars and graduates show their creation on how to notify the policy before they apply to their work. The PPACA states regarding great health care that patients are able to afford and they have the right to eliminate any financial obstacles that may help them to provide health care for many Americans. They have discovered that many Americans may suffer from nonfinancial obstacles and they will not be able to have access to any health care providers. In the 2010 the National Collegiate Atlantic Association (NCAA) examines to screen every division athletes for the sickle cell trait disease. The policy instructed that they provide a screening for each student athletes at the schools to classify if they are diagnose with sickle cell trait. The supporters of the program discuss that they will inform any athletes who are at risk for life-threatening events. There are many critics that the program may lead to judgement, Tarini et Al stated on the critics and let the NCAA know that about its own data and the perception of the program, because they saved many lives over the years of screening. Grudzen et Al define their partnership between University of California and Los Angeles County Emergency medical Services Agency. Their affiliation ascended from a foundation of research to translate certain concerns into action. Such as having the emergency medical technicians to resuscitate all patients even when there is a low benefit risk of physical harm also the disrespectful of patient preferences. They demand to change such actions and concerns; they change the issues by asking all of the patient’s family to honor any written and verbal requests not to resuscitate.

The agencies that were not mentioned in Davis and Gross article include the United Nations Development program (UNDP); UNDP is the global development system that is mostly focused on resolving many obstacles such as crisis prevention, recovery, poverty reduction, HIV/AIDS, democratic governance etc. This organization also arranges global and nationwide plan to overcome these obstacles especially reduction of poverty. For instance, it has helped Liberia to prepare nationwide for the elections of the first woman president by the name of Ellen Jonson-Sirleaf in Africa. This agency also helped Thailand construct water pumping places, as well as the Pakistan during the earthquake damaged. It also promotes the Human Development report every single year. The other agency that was not mentioned in the article is United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). It has reached out to a lot of countries when they going through hard time. It is available to help and care for mothers and children. For instance, they provide immunization for more than million children in Angola. They encourage girls to stay in school in many different countries in Africa. I am very familiar with this organization, because I have made a few donations on several occasions.
