I have to answer the below questions for the discussion post. Attached is the corresponding reading material for this week’s work. I do not need sources, but if you use sources to answer the questions, those need to be cited in AMA format ——-starts below——
In week 4, we discussed drug utilization review as a tool to identify gaps in care and attempt to close them; thereby, improving quality of care and potentially achieving cost savings.
Your readings on gaps in care suggested several ways that benefit consultants and employers can attempt to address gaps in care, including:
Adding programs
Employee education
Network audits
For the discussion post, think about each of these and any other relevant interventions you want to suggest in terms of feasibility, effectiveness, and patient impact.
Then describe how might each of these impact health equity both positively and negatively? Are there strategies to mitigate the negative impacts and amplify the positive?
