Health care refers to the prevention and treatment of diseases through the medical professional services, also it can be referred to as the improvement of health via the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, recovery or cure of illness. The provision of healthcare services to the general citizens of the nation is also faced with some issues that tend to derail it from achieving its goals. Some of this issues includes: Having very big data for the patients, the cybersecurity, invoicing and payment processing, price transparency and the effective payment model.

Among the mentioned health care issues, we are going to have a discussion on the price transparency and how this issue can affect our work setting. The patients and consumers are always disadvantaged when it comes to the lack of transparency around the price and cost of the healthcare products and services. Every one charges the price they feel it’s right for them without any consideration of the level of income and other factors as well such as poverty. It will be very important for the price transparency issue to be addressed for the following reasons:

1.) Better informed consumers and patients

2.) Better informed employers that help workers shop for value

3.) Improved ability for employers to monitor insurer effectiveness

The following work setting will be greatly affected for the above to be achieved for instance, we will need to come up with a national progremme system in place that will be constantly being updated on one central point on matters to do with prices, Doctors and patients will have to be taken to attend seminars from where they will be educated on the physical presence of the health products and advised on the recommended price to charge, the health care system can allow doctors to form unions whose goals will be to look after the transparency of the prices being charged in the market anytime there is price fluctuations. Open campaigns can be carried out with the idea of educating the most vulnerable groups so that everyone is part of the updates. Strict laws and punishment for any price transparency issue to be passed by the government of the day so that no one will not even have an idea of overcharging and exploiting the citizens on grounds of providing health care services and products

The health care system responded well to the work setting for instance, the national programmes in place is now controlling the prices, anybody can have an access to it at any time of the day for reference, the seminars bring together many doctors and patients who share the common interest, these when they return to their respective areas of work, they work as per agreement that they were given in those seminar hence getting rid of the price transparency issue, the laws laid to control the price has also been of great help, patient have full information about the health care services and products and they can sue anybody who may be having the ideas of taking advantage of them for instance when a patient visits and healthcare system and ask for their services, he/she will be expecting certain prices as per the law of the day.

Health care is becoming dynamic each new day due to the increasing diseases that are being witnessed, this will also trigger the shift to the use of more and advanced means of dealing with the diseases, more health care issues will continue to come as we move along this changes. The health care issues can only be minised to a certain level but cannot be completely removed from the system.
