Trends and Issues for the 21st Century
Health care trends and issues are well documented by multiple governmental and private organizations to study changes in the demographics of the populations, to discover disparities in health care, and to develop consistent solutions to any problems exposed. Changing population age, ethnic minority shifts, and economic swings do not alter the basic need for adequate health care and developing sustainable programs to adjust to future needs. The health of the nation is at risk without solutions in place.
Factors in Disparities
Disparities in health care quality and access have been extensively studied by The National Center for Health Statistics for the purpose of discovering trends and directing policy to improve the health of the nation (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2008). The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, through the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has as its mission to improve the quality of health care for all Americans by identifying inequalities in care (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 2004). A research search finds other agencies address the same basic disparity issues in health care.
The aging population of the United States creates new problems with an increased need for more access to health care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS), report that in 2006 there were 35.5 million people over the age of 65 in the United States. This is expected to rise to 55 million by 2020 (The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service, 2006) As people are living longer, the incidence of chronic diseases increase the need to utilize the health care system, increase the cost of and usage of medications, and an overall increase in the size of the health care budget (Lecca, Valentine, & Lyons, 2003, p.176). Utilizing the budget for the elderly takes money from other programs needed to be financed. The governmental Medicare and Medicaid systems provide coverage for the elderly and disabled, but struggle to keep access to adequate care available.
