In the past several years the healthcare system has experienced new changes in its structure and technology. The macro trends in healthcare are healthcare reform and the regulations of technology in healthcare that the government has put in place. Healthcare systems in the past have had some real complications both in the provided care and computer technology
Twenty-first century health care system in United States is not only complex, but also profoundly different from "what it used to be." The changes are numerous and represent the major shifts involved in moving from protection and delivery plan, based primarily on what the patient wanted, to a skeptically managed healthcare system. The American health care system has seen drastic changes within couple generations and it continues to evolve.

The company is known throughout the healthcare industry as a lead developer of advanced technology that has facilitated the successful integration of telehealth technology into the health care delivery system. The external business environment of American Well includes a very complex health care industry that has recently enacted a series of changes to health care law to include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and Health Information Technology for Economic
With consolidation among hospital systems over the last few years there has been a trend toward ways to streamline processes. By having “shared services” such as laundry services, human resources and radiology and diagnostic services it’s possible to lower costs and have common processes. The advent of health care reform and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with its Information Technology (IT) incentives has led to greater interest in risk management and IT solutions. While there was a decrease in 2012 on outsourcing IT services the finalization by the Supreme Court of the ACA and President Obama’s re-election cemented the need for an IT solution (Kutscher, 2012)
The company would need to purchase software, hardware, networks, upgrades, training, and computer personnel. “The average cost of installation for a practice is $50,000” (Niles, 2015, page 262). Going from a hard copy system to an electronic system requires several components, including a physician order communications/results retrieval, electronic document/control management, point of care charting, electronic physician order entry and prescribing, clinical decision support system, provider patient portals, personal health records, and population health (Niles, 2015, page 262). Converting to an electronic system affects the workflow because it changes the process for the professional. The training and learning of the system takes time to learn and to completely understand and is not as easy as just writing it down on paper. “Training is required for both healthcare professionals and staff to fully utilize the system” (Niles, 2015, page
I am a plate that is made of clay that was taken from the Earth of Japan. But before I was made into a plate I was up to the mountains near a big forest that had a Jinja on top a beautiful waterfall where water fell from the top to the bottom and sometimes flowing to rivers. But when winter comes the waterfall would freeze into shards and when the winter goes the shards and snow turn into water filling up the waterfall making a waterfall from the top to the bottom flowing with an immense amount of water to rivers and ponds that would sometimes connect with the waterfall. My maker crafted me to be used as art depicting many natural objects or buildings even sometimes people in the drawing. I am also used to hold a meal for a person who would eat the nourishment from top to bottom. Most of the time I would have fish from the ocean or rice that was farmed in flatlands on top of me.
Earth science is an area in science where I find pretty interesting. I know it includes things like the atmosphere and the Earth itself, as well as the relationship between the two and other planets. I also had a pretty good idea of how Venus could have been inhabited before it turned into a hot ball of fire rock. Venus’ orbit hadn’t always been as fast as Earth’s therefore making the days extremely long. The atmosphere of Venus was not as pleasing either. It had always been covered in most spots with thick clouds of sulfur or some type of chemical which blocked a large amount of sunlight to enter the atmosphere. Oppositely, Venus’ atmosphere seems to be made of some carbon dioxide, letting heat in but blocking it from entering, thus making it hotter than usual. Although I knew all these things, some still surprised me.
Today the world population is suffering from various kinds of diseases, some of which are of severe nature. Every day the medicine industry is developing new chemical compositions and compounds to combat with disease which are deadly and have a sever affect on the human body. Diabetes and obesity are two major health problems that have spread across the globe rapidly. Readymade food products contain a high amount of carbohydrate, fat and calories; this is one of the major reasons why people all over the world are gaining weight.
1. Fiber to the x (FTTX) is a generic term for any broadband network architecture using optical fiber to provide all or part of the local loop used for last mile telecommunications. Fiber to the X (FTTX) comprises the many variants of fiber optic access infrastructure. These include fiber to the home (FTTH), fiber to the premise (FTTP), fiber to the building (FTTB), fiber to the node (FTTN), and fiber to the curb or cabinet (FTTC). The speeds of fiber-optic and copper cables are both limited by length, but copper is much more limited.
