HHS 497 Week 2 DQ 1 Budget Allocations

Budget Allocations. Help, human services, and care are provided in many formats. However, to be considered under the umbrella of health and human services, the help must be provided by some type of formal organization. The Federal Government, the major provider of social welfare benefits, allocates 90% of the Federal budget for social programs. There are over 300 programs situated in eight public health agencies and three human service agencies. In order to grasp the significance of the above information you are asked to locate information that identifies the amount of budget allocated to the HHS budget for the fiscal years 2011, 2012, and 2013. After examining the budgets, and noting the changes, what conclusions do you draw? Also discuss the inferences you draw in terms of providing needed HHS care. Post your 300 word discussion and respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.

HHS 497 Week 3 DQ 1 New Emphasis

New Emphasis. There has been a shift of emphasis of the consumers of health and human services from professionals and care providers to increasingly include the client system. The stakeholders have increased through participation coupled with the increased volume of information which allows greater exposure to care alternatives. This means the client system has greater access to health and service records. Information, instead of flowing from the top down, is increasingly multi-directional. There are many implications of this change and the parallel modes of technology. Client-to-client communication has dramatically changed. After completing reading/research, you are asked to identify one positive and one negative outcome related to the changes addressed above. Include two examples from real life in your discussion post. Post your 300 word discussion and respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.
