The United States ranks 37th in health care system performance. The poor performance has affected the attempt to improving maternal and newborn health. Interesting enough I was never aware of the increasing mortality rates of maternity and newborns. United States has for a while suffered from its ability to present qualitative health care services, access, and efficiency of care. With its low rankings the United States citizens are suffering from living healthy lives. Obesity, hypertension and diabetes have been a great number in the U.S causing many to suffer. However, today changes are being made. Many leaders and organizations are promoting exercising and healthy eating. Advocates are coming up with more ways to make eating healthy and living healthy easier. Ironically political leaders are promoting the U.S as one of the best countries health care system which is by far not the truth because of its numbers. We are cost affective due to the new implementation of managed care plans. Unfortunately, the health care system of the United States cannot satisfy everyone as a whole. Regardless of improvements it will always go on as a system that cannot fulfill the people.

Understanding quality improvement is more important now than ever before.

The article remarks the necessity that the health care organizations, review its strategy and take a look below the water level, and make systematic structural changes, and abandon the obsolete way of health care delivery system. These days private payers and government agencies had been changed the method of reimbursement for services delivered by a provider, now they start with reimbursement programs that require  to meet some specific standards for quality of the services provided, and no longer through the old fee for service reimbursement system. According to the article the Government is pushing new rules in health care quality improvement in order for a health care institution to qualify as provider of Medical and Medical, the institution needs to meet all the rigorous quality improvements included in the participant’s requirements, where the provider reimbursement payments has been adjusted according to its performance and with emphasis placed on value base care. According to the article the government will give incentives to those private or larger health care providers who adopt the quality improvement methods in their health care delivery system, and will be penalize those who are not, or refuse to enroll in those quality improvement programs. It does not matter if is a small rural or large metropolitan health care provider, it is beneficial for both parties; the patient and the health care institution to adopt the quality improvement method, to deliver and outstanding quality of health care service.
