1 4 Assignment Inpatient And Outpatient Services

I’m working on a management writing question and need an explanation to help me understand better.

Case One: You just received your degree in health administration and would like to pursue a career in hospital management. However, you are not sure what type of hospital would be a good fit for you. Identify and describe three different types of hospitals that are available for you to consider. Based upon your research, select a hospital type for the focus of your job search. Explain why you are choosing this type of hospital.

Case Two: One of your friends was just released from the hospital. During their stay, they received services from a physician who was identified as a “hospitalist”. She was not familiar with this type of specialist and since you are studying health administration, asked you to explain what a “hospitalist” does. Perform an Internet and/or OCLS search on the term “hospitalist”. Define the term and describe their function. Discuss whether there are any current statistics on the use of “hospitalists”.

Case Three: A classmate in your health administration program was just offered a position at an adult day services center. While you are familiar with child day care centers, you are unclear about what happens in an adult day services center. Perform an Internet and/or OCLS search on adult day service centers. Describe the types of services they provide and why an individual might receive care in this mode of healthcare delivery.
