Data compiled by the Health care Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) shows that only 8 percent of hospitalizations are primary-coded for the wellness-sensitive medical event diagnoses used in the BJC study. To determine whether it is possible to save money, an employer would have to tally its spending on wellness-sensitive events just like HCUP and BJC did. That represents the theoretical savings when multiplied by cost per admissions. The analysis would compare that figure to the incentive cost (now averaging $594 ) and the cost of the wellness program, screenings, doctor visits, follow-ups recommended by the doctor, benefits consultant fees, and program management time. For example, if spending per covered person were $6,000 and hospitalizations were half of a company’s cost ($3,000), potential savings per person from eliminating 8 percent of hospitalizations would be $240, not enough to cover a typical incentive payment even if every relevant hospitalization were eliminated.
Throughout the world, working in the health care field is considered hard and difficult. Nurses and physicians as professionals in the health care field work to provide the best care for patients. Due to the work of the professionals as a team, communication is an important and essential component of care for patients with good quality (Morgan, 2013). From the authors’ experience as nurses, it seems clear that communication plays a crucial role in the care of patients and among healthcare providers. Patients need to communicate with health professionals which may help them to understand of intervention of care. Healthcare providers must realize the importance of communication and take into account the impact communication on patient outcome. The motivation to choose this topic was to describe the influence of communication between nurses and physicians on the patient outcome.
