As an EMS manager the research methods and legal issues I learned in this class are vital in helping me ensure my service operates both within the law, and within ethics. This class has helped give me a better understanding of the laws I already had a basic understanding of as well as the laws I had not known as well. I look forward to continuing my learning in this field. There is a lot of change coming to the field of health care. We will not come out on the other side of this pandemic the same as we went into it. This will prove to be a landmark event in health care. It has shown the vulnerabilities in our health care system here and around the world. I think that this will show us were the legalities of health care interfere with the ability to provide care, and how bureaucracy can hinder the development of new treatments and ideas.
The United States system has shown that our disaster response plan is not ready for a medical disaster. It works well for hurricanes and trauma but not for disease outbreaks. The ability to allow interstate practice among all providers will greatly improve responses of providers from outside the outbreak area. I think this is the most interesting part of health care law in America that stems from our system of government. There is a surprising amount of difference between the laws and practice standards. I think moving forward we will need strong health care leaders that have a good understanding of the laws, where they came from and we need to go!
