What are the benefits and risks of alternative health care products and services to the consumer?
there are different issues with different types of medical services. there exist 150+ types of alternative care. some types are mostly about pain management , in my humble opinion, like acupuncture. [ through the stimulation of the lymphatic system, and release of endorphins. and perhaps acupressure. other types that are mild manipulation like massage, it mostly to increase blood flow, also
cupping. other types like chiropractic, or osteopathy are manipulation, as also physical therapy is too. ]

Do you think the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has worked?
Weegy: The HIPAA ensures that individual health care plans are accessible, portable, and renewable, and it sets the standards and the methods for how medical data is shared across the U.S. health system in order to prevent fraud. [ It pre-empts state law unless the state's regulations are more stringent. This act has been modified since 1996 to include processes for safely storing and sharing patient medical information electronically. The act also has an administrative simplification provision, which is aimed at increasing efficiency and reducing administrative costs by establishing national standards. Health insurers, health maintenance organizations (HMOs), healthcare billing services and other entities that handle sensitive personal medical information must comply with the standards set by the HIPAA. Noncompliance may result in civil or criminal penalties. Read more: ] (More)

Two years after HIPAA was enforced healthcare providers and patients are more aware of personal health information (PHI) privacy and security issues. What is your thoughts/
Weegy: With that, so kind of our overview of federal HIPAA enforcements. And, so this module, we?re going to talk about what the Official of Civil Rights does for its enforcement. Recall that we have civil money penalty enforcement. [ [ You may recall that, and?ll we?ll get into this later, but we haven?t done much in the way of imposing penalties, but we have done a lot of enforcement, and so we?re going to provide information on that. And, then the Department of Justice has its own criminal penalty enforcement. So, hopefully at the end of this module, be able to describe what OCR?s activities are and our Enforcement Rule Authority, Authority and also what the OJ does. So what ways does OCR enforce HIPAA? We?re going to talk about and get right into this complaints. We operate on a complaint-based system. All complaints that come in the door, we make a commitment to investigate, well, to review I should say. Investigate, we?ll get into that as a key distinction. We want to look at all the complaints to see is there?s a true allegation. There are certain parameters that we won?t be able to investigate. If a case, for example, is is old, if it is not a covered entity, if it is not a violation of The Privacy Rule, those are situations where we wouldn?t do or we wouldn?t pursue it?that. So, as you can see from this graphic though, our our receipts started off the 2003 was the first effective time. ] ] (More)

What are the benefits and risks of advertising and marketing health care products and services to potential health care consumers?
Weegy: Healthcare marketing in the United States had little regulation until the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914. [ This legislation established the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which regulates the marketing of products and services, including prescription drugs, medical devices and healthcare procedures. The FTC protects consumers from deceptive claims and unfair practices in marketing. It works in conjunction with the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure the safety of healthcare services and products. ] (More)

I have seen so many relationships torn apart because one person does not want some of the information shared and the other person continues to push. It is not just relationships between men and women, but also relationships between parents and their children. What is your thought?
Weegy: I believe that the key to relationships is trust, which requires communication. If someone doesn't want to talk about something, though, others should respect their wishes. (More)

I have seen so many relationships torn apart because one person does not want some of the information shared and the other person continues to push. It is not just relationships between men and women, but also relationships between parents and their children. What is your thought?
Weegy: Here’s the trap I’ve seen too many women fall into: a woman keeps expressing to her husband how he is doing something (or not doing something) that is hurting her. [ Even after several such conversations, he doesn’t change —or he’ll change for a few days and then go back to his old habits, at which point the wife complains again. Still, no long-term change. The wife reads a book or attends a seminar and decides she needs to find a better way to communicate so she can get her message across, but even after this, there’s no permanent change. Her error is assuming that she’s not getting through. In point of fact, she is getting through to her husband—he may fully understand and be completely aware of her pain, but he’s not motivated by her pain. If he likes the marriage as it is, he’ll put up with an occasionally disagreeable conversation now and then. ] (More)
