User: what does pt means in your answer you just gave for the question Does patients right affect how health care workers interact wit patients

Weegy: It is the responsibility of every healthcare worker to respect patients’ rights, making sure that he or she does not violate the privacy of patient information. It is also the law. [ Very soon, if you aren’t already, you will likely be receiving special training related to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and its effect on patient communication. It is to your advantage to understand what HIPAA means about how you do your job. Some of the rules affecting healthcare communication are about to change. Starting in 2002, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, commonly known as HIPAA, will take effect. Enacted in 1996 as the Kassenbaum-Kennedy Act, its provisions affect billing, medical records, patient privacy, and the electronic transmission of medical data. Healthcare professionals need to be ready for the changes it will bring about. Once HIPAA is fully implemented, healthcare organizations will need to inform patients about their rights. Throughout this process, it is likely that there will be media attention about how HIPAA affects patients and providers alike. Your understanding of the law is important both to ensure your patients realize the benefits the law provides and to help you organization meet the new requirements. Failure to comply with the provisions will be costly, says L. William Katz, DMA, CMC, president of Katz & Associates. If a healthcare worker knowingly violates the regulations, there can be both criminal and civil penalties. Mistakes that are embarrassing now, says Katz, will be expensive under the new law. The regulations under HIPAA are extensive and complex. Here is a brief overview of some of the major provisions regarding privacy of patient information and how they affect you. ]

Explain the legal rights of individuals as they interact with heath care services
Weegy: Editor's Note: The following is the text of a speech delivered by David Kelley at multiple venues in 1993-94. [ Its theme remains relevant today, especially with the advent of "Obamacare." Bill Clinton ran for president last year by attacking the 1980s as a "decade of greed" —attacking the leveraged buyouts and hostile takeovers engineered by Wall Street financiers. I happen to think this trend in the 1980s was a good thing, a productive realignment in American business. But be that as it may, the irony is that President Clinton is now proposing a hostile takeover of his own, a hostile takeover on a scale far beyond anything that Wall Street capitalists ever dreamed of, a hostile takeover of one seventh of the nation's economy. I'm referring, of course, to his recently announced plan for health care "reform." The Clinton plan in its present form involves a massive exercise of coercion against physicians, employers, and patients alike. Most people will be forced to do business through health insurance purchasing cooperatives: government-backed monopolies that collect payments from consumers and set the terms on which producers can offer their services. Everyone will be forced to buy health care through these monopolies, with employers forced to pay the lion's share of the bill. Physicians, hospitals, and HMOs will be prohibited from dealing with patients directly; they will be forced to offer their services through the purchasing cooperatives, subject to highly restrictive rules. Every right imposes some obligation on others. What has brought us to this state of affairs? Socialism has collapsed in the Soviet Union. The nations of Western Europe are trying to trim back their welfare states, desperately looking for ways to privatize. Yet in this country we are on the brink of a massive increase in government subsidies and government controls. Why? The full story is a long and complicated one, but the essential cause, I think, is simple. ] User: ... (More)

Explain the process, including cultural diversity for ethical decision making
Weegy: Ethical decision making is required when the healthcare executive must balance the needs and interests of the individual, the organization and society. [ Those involved in this decision making process must consider ethical principles such as justice, autonomy, beneficence and fairness, as well as professional ethical standards and codes. Many factors have contributed to the growing concern in healthcare organizations with ethical issues, including issues of access and affordability, pressure to reduce costs, mergers and acquisitions, financial and other resource constraints, and advances in medical technology that complicate decision making near the end of life. Healthcare executives have a responsibility to address the growing number of complex ethical dilemmas they are facing, but they cannot and should not make such decisions alone or without a sound decision-making framework. Healthcare organizations should have vehicles that may include ethics committees, ethics consultation services, processes for dealing with potential conflicts of interest or written policies and procedures to assist healthcare executives with the ethics decision-making process. With these organizational mechanisms, the sometimes conflicting interests of patients, families, caregivers, the organization, payors, and the community can be appropriately weighed and balanced. ] (More)
