Primary Research Analysis

The data exhibits information pertaining to the governments caps on subsidies. Financial

losses in hospitals occur due to delayed schedules, materials not being optimized, and

inefficiency in maintaining patients in hospital beds. The government placed a cap on subsidies

for hospitals and clinics through Obamacare, which pressures healthcare managers and the

hospital to decrease costs and increase efficiency. The American with Disabilities Act

acknowledges the need to adjust the hospital's facilities so that a patient with disabilities may

properly and efficiently utilize the facilities just as a person without disabilities would be able to.

Technology, such as tug robots and the computer systems in the pharmacy, are incorporated into

the daily lives of doctors and nurses to maximize efficiency and provide simplicity and flow in

the hospital, creating higher amounts of profits.

The problem in healthcare management mostly lies in doctors wants. Logically, a single

server for medical records and patient information that consists of all departments is most

efficient and least expensive to maintain. Although this is ideal, doctors and departments prefer

to have their own servers, producing inefficiency and higher expenses. As a result, more costs

are built that could easily be removed if the doctors cooperated. In addition to this, an excess of

doctors and nurses are kept during surgeries sometimes, who do not attend to the patient or do

much work in general, but they are still getting paid for their time. Hospitals are still mandated to

pay these employees, so another inefficiency is listed as excess of employees.

All of the questions referring to the inefficiency of utilization and cost reduction provide

the same answers. The results slightly vary, but most of the responses are the same or similar.

Although these variables cause hospitals to have higher costs, healthcare managers have

dilemmas in eliminating the inefficiencies because of the inability to change within doctors and

hospital departments, unaware patients, and excess of employees.

In general, the data shows the decrease in effectiveness and problems in the profit

maximization of the hospital, as well as barriers for healthcare managers to create optimization

in its finances. Additionally, the inefficiency caused by medical records and servers results from

the inability to cooperate between the doctors. The United States federal government is

decreasing subsidies for hospitals every year, so healthcare managers are developing plans to

increase efficiency and optimize production.
