Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the body and it gives the body what it needs to be physically active and for the body organs to function. It is important to have carbohydrates in your diet. The body can produce energy from proteins and fats, but those processes require the addition of energy plus water in order to convert them into glucose. Carbohydrates are like energy that has been pre-packed, and the body just need to open up the package and the energy would just pour out. Carbohydrates come from foods that we eat and it comes from plants. There are two types of carbohydrates simple carbohydrates and complex carbohydrates. Determining which one is which depends on the chemical structure and how fast the sugar is digested and absorbed. Another name for simple carbohydrates is called simple sugars and is chemically made of one or two sugars, for example: the sugar that is in your bowl, candy, syrups, and sodas are simple carbohydrates, also foods like fruit and milk are simple carbohydrates, but they are considered better sources of simple carbohydrates because they also contain vitamins and fiber, which is important nutrients that your body needs, such as calcium (2010). Complex carbohydrates are known as starches and are made of three or more linked sugars. Grains such as bread, pasta, oatmeal and rice are complex carbs, as well as some vegetables like broccoli, corn legumes, such as kidney beans and chick peas. They take the longest to digest.

When sugars first enter the body they are broken down into simple sugars so they can be used in the body. Once the breakdown has started, the sugar goes through the stomach and all of the food is digested. Digestion breaks down substances into molecules small enough to go through the stomach lining into the bloodstream. Sugar is one of the substances that goes into the bloodstream and is sent to cells…...

One was American, Winlow Frederick Taylor, and developed the scientific management school called, worried about increasing the efficiency of the industry through, initially, the rationalization of work operator. The other was a European, Henri Fayol, and developed the so-called classical theory concerned to increase the efficiency of your company through your organization and the application of general principles of science-based management. Although they were not communicated with each other and have parties of different views and even opposite, the truth is that their ideas are the basis of so-called traditional classical approach of the administration, which dominated postulates about the first four decades of this century the administrative landscape of organizations. So in a general way, the classical approach of management guidelines can be split into two quite different and somewhat opposite each other, but complementary with relative consistency: 1 .- On the one hand, the school of scientific management, developed in the United States, from the......

Employees who have an exercise program on site have the ability to last longer on the job as opposed to employees without an on site exercise program. This is mainly attributed to the overall fitness of the employees. For an employee to produce quality results, it is important to maintain fitness in all areas. The employee should be fit physiologically, physically, mentally, and professionally. The brain plays an important role in the overall performance of an employee. For an employee to conduct the different tasks well, the brain should be maintained at high levels of fitness. An exercise program ensures that employees exhibit better performance and stay on longer due to the fact that it provides fitness in more than one vital area. During the normal tasks in the workplace, the body undergoes wearing processes. The vital organs that are involved in the processes and are prone to the wearing include the brain and muscles. The amount of strain in a task is directly related to the wearing it causes to the different organs on the body. It is very significant to have an......

The United States spends more per capita on health care than any comparable country. “Single payer is a term used to describe a type of financing system. It has one entity acting as the administrator or “payer.” So with healthcare, a single payer-payer system would be setup such that entity-a government run organization-would collect all healthcare fees and pay out all health care costs.” (Physicians for a National Health Program, 2010) Currently in the U.S. system, there are thousands of different healthcare organizations, such as HMOs, billing agencies, etc. With having all these healthcare fees from so many different payers, there is a huge quantity of administrative waste in the system. “With a single-payer system, all doctors, other health care providers, and hospitals would bill only one entity for the services that were rendered by them.” (PHNP. 2010) This alone cut down the administrative side and save money, which can be used to provide insurance and care to those who currently does not have any. Under the single-payer, everyone will receive a wide-ranging of medical benefits. The coverage would include all “medical......

...“Transformational change is associated with organizational restructuring and represents a broad and complex radical shift, as the organization “reinvents itself.” (Johnson, 2009) In the healthcare industry, things are changing every day. New technology, medication, and the way we deal with patients changes on a daily basis. Change is necessary because there are people behind the scenes always finding new ways to better improve the quality of care we give to our patients as well as creating new technology to help assist with the way we treat our patients. Adding and taking away from departments are changing as well. With change we may want to be uninterested with it, supportive of it, to be a participate in it, or unreceptive about it. Whether the case may be, change has increased and will continue to happen whether we like it or not. Throughout this paper I will discuss two healthcare organizations that have experienced change. “Effective change has been characterized as unfreezing old behaviors, introducing new ones, and refreezing them.” (Al-Abir, 2007) Change can be random, rare, occasional, or continuous. Change that are predictable allow preparation time, whereas change that is unpredictable may be difficult for everyone to respond effectively too. Since in healthcare changes happen so fast, they are more than likely predicable. Even though change is recognized, the employees what to be able to understand why change is occurring and how it will affect them......

Hospital Administration and Its Role in Healthcare

...Hospital Administration and its Role in Healthcare Professional Development MBA-525-MBOL6 Saint Leo University Lisa Massey Dr. Bruce Hammond March 9, 2013 Abstract This paper will discuss why healthcare administration is my career field of choice and why it is interesting and appealing to me on many different levels. I will explain why I feel compelled to work in the healthcare field and how the administration portion of healthcare affords me the opportunity to have a broader influence on the overall picture. There are so many things that can be accomplished from an administrative perspective that greatly impact the patient care experience starting from bedside care all the way to organizational policy and procedure development. For me, this is a very rewarding career both professionally and spiritually. Hospital Administration and its Role in Healthcare When I first started out in healthcare almost 20 years ago, I always knew I wanted to do something on a much grander scale than just bedside nursing. Dr. Pace (2006, p. 3) discussed early in his books, the importance of choosing a career that is both interesting and challenging and also has the ability to provide you with financial security. The healthcare field has always offered job security because the demand for people with medical training will always be high because as long as people are living and getting sick, they will need healthcare providers. The healthcare field itself is continually growing to......

...Healthcare Administration Career I chose to my research project on the title above because the field that I want to go into and stay in is the medical field, without performing the clinical aspect of the job (Nurse, LVN, and Medical Assistant). Health care administrators have wide-ranging influence within the world of medicine. The leadership that these professionals provide sets the future course not only for the facilities they manage but also for the health care system as a whole. The educational requirements are as followed: A bachelor’s degree (four years) is the typical entry-level preparation needed for health care administration jobs. Some employers, however, will promote from within or hire other professionals with related experience (ex. Nurses) who are ideal for an administrative role due to their direct health care knowledge. This means attaining a MBA, or a different type of master’s degree, or a doctorate in health administration is required for high- level executive positions. Subspecialties are often available, especially in graduate programs. These include long-term care administration, health care services, or health information management. Prospective health care administrators should look for educational programs accredited by the Commission of Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education. An accredited program has successfully gone through a process that ensures responsibility and a commitment to quality progress. Training: Some educational......

...Discussion Questions: 1. Explain what a SWOT analysis is and summarize the purpose of conducting a SWOT analysis. A SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis is a specific, structured planning method used to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats involved in a project or plan. A SWOT analysis “aims to identify the internal strengths and weaknesses of an organization, along with external market opportunities and threats” (Buchbinder & Shanks, 2012). SWOT is a basic, straightforward model that assesses what an organization can and cannot do as well as its competitors and also shows potential opportunities and threats to the ideas being considered. The way SWOT analysis works is to take the information gathered and separate it into internal (strengths and weaknesses) and external issues (opportunities and threats). Once this is completed, SWOT analysis determines what may assist in accomplishing the desired objectives, and what obstacles must be minimized to achieve favorable results (Buchbinder & Shanks, 2012). Users of SWOT analysis need to ask and answer questions which will give useful and meaningful information for each category to make the analysis useful and find the potential advantages and weaknesses. A SWOT analysis is an integral part of any planning process because it provides a good all-around view of the current situation as well as the considerations of future obstacles or issues. At the planning stage......

...I. Introduction a. Brief review of the concept of healthcare reform b. A thesis statement II. Effects of healthcare reforms on an insurance industry a. Reduces company’s profit margins b. Reduces company’s administrative costs III. Conclusion IV. Works Cited Healthcare reform affects patients, healthcare providers, government spending and biomedical researchers. A good healthcare reform should be cost effective in its implementations and affordability. In my view, any reform in the healthcare sector should be that, which widens the population that receives insurance coverage, diversifies and minimizes the cost of healthcare, protect the right patients and physicians as well as improves accessibility and quality in order to eliminate strikes of healthcare givers and suffering of patients. Although healthcare reforms should aim at fairness and sustainability, high costs of medical coverage and economic impacts on insurance companies are the major effects of healthcare reforms. Healthcare reforms have affected the profit margins, administrative costs, membership growth and medical management and expenses of insurance companies. The attempt by the insurance companies to strive to remain relevant in the business by providing adequately medical coverage only results to a lot of risk and adverse selection. In this case, majority of the members covered under the insurance scheme are sick, making the companies to pay out medical......

...Healthcare in the US needs better management and more effective policy. Most people agree that Healthcare should be accessible to every American. However this is not the case. In the Health Care Systems class we discussed that medical payments are the number one reason people go bankrupt in America. This is an indication that Healthcare is not only inaccessible but it is not affordable to many Americans. This is a problem we need to fix as a country. As of where it stands now, healthcare is dependent on income. In a country where income inequality is a result of several factors such as where you were born, education, and race, this puts several millions of Americans at a disadvantage. There are inefficiencies within the system that prevent us from giving the highest quality of healthcare. It is hard to point the finger, but every party involved must take responsibility. One such area is in health informatics. We aren’t fully utilizing the data that providers and payers have. This could dramatically increase the quality of care. In my genetics class we talked about the amount of data they compiled to construct the human genome. They did this so efficiently that they were able to figure out if you were more likely to be conservative or liberal based on certain gene expression. If we were to utilize the data, the same way we used data to construct the human genome, we would be able to increase the quality of healthcare by a serious margin. My hope throughout this program is...

Technology and Healthcare Administration

...Technology and Healthcare Administration Warren Thomas Kaplan University HS290-01 Technology and Healthcare Administration As technology continues to improve and become more cost effective, how providers store and access their patient’s medical records has evolved. Many providers now opt for electronic records. Some providers enter information directly into their systems, having a computer station in each exam room. Other providers will hand write on paper forms and will have them coded later. This can sometimes cause delays in the update of the medical records. Each record keeping system has its own benefits and issues unique to it. For electronic records, the first benefit is a reduction of cost in record keeping. While there is an initial cost of implementing an electronic filing system, the cost of these systems will be less in the long run. Less time will be required to manage, file, and maintain the records. This time savings can allow doctors to see more patients and can even reduce the number of employees required to run a clinic. There is, however, a learning curve when using electronic records. Not only will the entire staff need to be trained when a new system is emplaced, new employees who may be veterans of the healthcare fields will need training. Even someone experienced with electronic records may have to learn a new system when changing job. Adding to the cost savings, storage space will also be reduced. Since healthcare providers are......

...Changing legislation is another macro-trend that is sure to affect the US healthcare system especially concerning the ACA and the uncertainty of the act. According to CNBC reporter, Dan Mangan, repeal of the legislation is likely if a Republican president is elected but banishing the act completely is not likely (CNBC.com). Furthermore, law makers are proposing to change mandates within the act through government regulation as opposed to creating new legislation. Regulation is easier and less votes are needed. If the ACA becomes regulated, there is a possibility for a rise in employer-sponsored plans. Since the ACA legislation passed, there has been a drop in the enrollment in employer-sponsored plans because offering insurance to employees became expensive for companies due to the ban on rationing of care, specifically through pre-existing conditions. Some Republicans are proposing plans to do away with this provision that bars insurers from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions or charging more money (CNBC.com). With the pending uncertainty of the ACA, there are a few demographic groups that will be affected should the ACA go under major repeal or regulation. One group being those individuals that are were previously uninsured and underinsured which caused access to care issues. Prior to 2009, those that were uninsured were unable to gain access to care due to the rising costs of care, treatments and prescriptions which resulted in those individuals either not......
