Part A :There are 7 questions to answer. Content requirements for the Journal Report summaries are as follows Answer the following 7 questions:
- What is the article about?(worth 5-0 points)Summarize the focus of the law article (do not rewrite the article). The summary should include all the critical points so that anyone reading your summary could know what the full article is about and not have to read the law article for themselves.
- What law, or proposed law, or court action is the article discussing? (worth 5-0 points)
2a. Is the law, proposed law, or court action federal, state, or local action?
2b. If you read about a law / proposed law, is it a regulatory or allocative law or both?
- What part(s) of the health care system will the law or court action affect? (hospitals, practitioners, businesses, clinics, etc). (worth 5-0 points) You should think about all the components of the health care system. The law or court case about which you read could relate to more than one component of the system.
- Will the law, regulation, or court action improve or hamper the health care system? (worth 5-0 points)
- How will the law, regulation, or court action improve or hamper the health care system?(This is a critical element of your journal report). (worth 5-0 points) You should critically think about the law or court case and then explain how the law or court case will improve the health care system or negatively impact the health care system.
**Demonstrate critical thinking by explaining how the law or court action discussed in the article will change, enhance, hinder, cause barriers, or help the health care system. This explanation should be more than a statement like, “this court action will hurt the health care system.” If you make that statement, then I would expect you to explain how it will hurt the system and what part of the system (e.g., hospitals, clinics, physicians, pharmaceutical industry, medical transports, etc.). You should NOT focus on how the person is helped or hinder but how the health care system is helped or hindered.
Exampleonly for answering the above questions – only a BRIEF example (not to be taken as an exact example of the amount you should write):
What is the article about? The article is about new HIV/AIDS funding for Indiana. Funding comes from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to the Indiana State Dept. of Health who then grants the funds out under contract. There are only three HIV/AIDS services in the state to conduct screening, education, and treatment. There are a lot more services needed for the number of HIV diagnosed individuals.
What law or court case is the article discussing? The article is discussing an amendment to the Ryan White Care Act, which is federal funding and an allocative law.
What part of the health care system will the law affect? The Ryan White Care Act provides funding for health care clinics to serve HIV infected patients and to screen people who want to be tested. Hospitals sometimes operate these HIV clinics, so hospitals will also be affected by the Act and the increased funding. Private physician offices are not eligible for the federal funding. Some pharmacies may be affected because the HIV clinics may write prescriptions for their patients to receive medications through local pharmacies and not the clinic. The local county health departments will benefit because they do not have to spend their county dollars to serve people who want to be tested for HIV.
Will the law or court case improve or hinder the health care system? The Ryan White Care Act amendment will improve the health care system for those areas of the state where clinics exist. The lack of sufficient funding in the Act will hinder health care services in other parts of the state where clinics are not located. Thus, hospitals, physician offices, and local county health departments will need to spend their own money to screen, education, and treatment HIV patients and rely on the patients paying for the services.
How will the law or court case improve or hamper the system? The amendment will improve the system by allowing more patients to be seen, more staff can be hired, the clinics can expand to new locations, and there will be less reliance on patients paying for services. Hospitals will not have to serve as many patients in the emergency rooms who want screening. Pharmacies will benefit by selling more prescription drugs which HIV patients take.
Questions 1 thru 5 are each worth 5 pts. for a total of 25 pts possible.
- What information is missing in the article? (worth 3-0 points) Describe what information could or should have been included by the author of the article in order to provide you, the reader, with additional information. (What information would have helped you better understand the proposed health policy, health law, regulation, or court order). This will take some critical thinking on your part.
NOTE: You should focus on what is missing in the article, NOT what is missing in the law discussed or the court action taken, how the regulations work, or what the researcher did not do. Just focus on what is missing from the article itself that could have helped you better understand what the author was writing about (e.g., “It would have helped me understand the issue if the author had included more data about…., or more detail about the law, or how many cases this appellate court has ruled against the ……”).
- What new information did you learn by reading this article? (worth 2-0 points) What in the article was new information to you and how did the article help you have a different perspective on the issue? You need to state more than the obvious. No points will be earned for a statement such as “all of this information was new to me.” Instead, acceptable statements could be, e.g., “I knew ….. but did not know….” “After reading this article, I have a better understanding about….”
