Health Care Model Comparison Response

Respond to the student post below. Use scholarly journal: There are many different aspects when thinking of the healthcare field. For example, health could be talking about an individual, community, or as a nation all together. When thinking of the traditional medical care, this is more individual and to the point. A patient goes to the clinician for a diagnosis, therefore being very focused on the issue which is being presented. While traditional medical care is patient centered, population health is very broad. Population health has many factors such as physical, cultural, and social environments which affects the outcomes they have for the health of populations (Caron, 2017). The differences in these health care models have many different effects on the comprehension of health. It is important to know the difference between these two, because they both are dealing with the welfare of people. Traditional health is focused on caring with the patient, whereas population health is focused on preventative healthcare which would decrease healthcare spending. Humans have known for a long time that there is a connection between health and the environment in which they are living in. The places in which people work and live have an enormous impact on their health, so by helping to bring change to the socioeconomic factors the level of health will improve (Institute of Medicine, 2003). As we just learned last week with the Health Impact Pyramid, socioeconomic factors have the most impact on improving health (Frieden, 2010). Social determinants need support from policy and models in order to be impactful on a population health level.
