Toggle Drawer Context Health care delivery is a complex process and system that includes multiple delivery sites such as hospitals, ambulatory-care centers, private-provider offices, community-health facilities, home-care agencies, and extended-care facilities. Managed care is a method used to reimburse or pay for health care service. It includes more than just payment; it also controls the delivery services. Health care reform has been undertaken for a variety of reasons, not the least of which are access and health disparities issues. Nursing within an organization is a critical component of health care delivery and is an essential ingredient in patient outcomes (Kelly & Tazbir, 2014). Toggle Drawer Questions to Consider To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. For the following questions, you may wish to review the Brown, Bornstein, and Wilcox article Partnership and Empowerment Program: A Model for Patient-Centered, Comprehensive, and Cost-Effective Care, listed in the Unit Resources. Who makes you accountable for the delegation that you use in your organization, as well as on a state and national level? Are there ways you could initiate greater collaboration with the health care team by using delegation? What is the purpose of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing delegation decision-making tree? What is the long-term implication related to health care cost if the patient or patient population continues to have poor outcomes related to cost containment?
