Topic: Financial Incentives Healthcare Law & Ethics
This is not a formal paper rather an informal and straightforward discussion for an online class. If an example is provided,
please use only original, knowledgeable, and content driven 3rd person examples; do not imitate ideas from Internet sites,
and please do not use personal, first person examples.
An introduction to the topic is not necessary, so please do not provide a detailed explanation of the subject. Simply focus
all writing on details that relate only to the immediate question: a detailed background of the concept is not appreciated.
The use of bonuses, financial incentives and sanctions have become common tools for managed care organizations seeking to
save costs. What guidelines should there be for employees of such organizations? How does an employee know when a cost saving
decision which is good for the organizations bottom line has interfered with proper patient care? What if a nurse is in
charge of budgeting and denial of care on a patient would produce a bonus for that nurse at the end of the year?
Although no sources are required, all sources do need to be cited; therefore, if you provide an informative statement, please
back-up the information with a credible source.
