Response/Healthcare Supply and Demand33

POST BY LI Healthcare Supply and Demand Measures of supply and demand are an important function in capacity planning of healthcare providers. Measures of supply indicate the amount of care that can be made available, which include staffing, beds available, ability to manage waiting times and medical equipment. Measure of demand indicates the quantity of health services the population needs. For example, a high number of admissions can reflect a high demand for service and average length of stay may be a reflection on the complexity of cases. (IHI, n.d.) There are several factors that affect the publics involvement in public health programs. For example, for public health agencies to meet their goals, they must first assess the state of health of their communities and identify the needs responsible for poor health. Once the needs are assessed then an intervention strategy can be designed to address these factors. These interventions require resources such as community-based prevention activities, ensuring the delivery of high-quality personal preventative services and developing social and public policies that ensure adequate food and water, clean air and water, and protection from workplace hazards. (APHA, .) I currently work at City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center in the department of Professional Practice and Education. In addition to providing continuing nursing education to the nursing staff, our department is responsible for on-boarding patient care services staff. The demand for cancer care has risen dramatically. According to the American Cancer Society, cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for about one-quarter of deaths annually. Based on the most recent data, the American Cancer Society estimates that there will be 1,762,450 new cancer cases and 606,880 cancer deaths projected for this year in the United States. City of Hope has a 217-bed capacity and an outpatient clinic with an Evaluation and Treatment Center (ETC) with an additional 6 beds. Currently, at City of Hope the growing demand for cancer care is impending the diminished supply of hospital beds and staff to provide necessary cancer care. In order to meet the demand to care for patients, City of Hope recently installed an Observation Unit with a total of 11 beds and hired 20 Travel Nurses to cover the unit. Additionally, City of Hope has established 24 practice sites across Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, Orange and San Bernardino counties to bring cancer care and leading-edge treatments closer to diverse under-served communities.
