national healthcare issues/stressors presented in the Resources

The Quadruple Aim provides broad
categories of goals to pursue to maintain and improve healthcare. Within
each goal are many issues that, if addressed successfully, may have a
positive impact on outcomes. For example, healthcare leaders are being
tasked to shift from an emphasis on disease management often provided in
an acute care setting to health promotion and disease prevention
delivered in primary care settings. Efforts in this area can have
significant positive impacts by reducing the need for primary healthcare
and by reducing the stress on the healthcare system. 

Changes in the industry only serve to stress what has always been
true; namely, that the healthcare field has always faced significant
challenges, and that goals to improve healthcare will always involve
multiple stakeholders. This should not seem surprising given the
circumstances. Indeed, when a growing population needs care, there are
factors involved such as the demands of providing that care and the
rising costs associated with healthcare. Generally, it is not surprising
that the field of healthcare is an industry facing multifaceted issues
that evolve over time.
