Assignment: Services Marketing Plans

Throughout this course, you have considered the value of developing a health care services marketing plan and have determined the relevance of this process for the practice of health care administration. As you refine your skills for developing health care services marketing plans, you will be able to define, develop, and implement health programs, initiatives, or offer health care services. In addressing the needs for your target audience or community, your organization or agency will be better poised to offer effective health care delivery.

Critical Thinking Questions

1. Why was this patient placed on immunosuppressive therapy?

2. Why was the Meckel scan ordered for this patient?

3. What are the clinical differences and treatment options for Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease? (always on boards)

4. What is prognosis for patients with IBD and what are the follow up recommendations for managing disease?
Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Case Study

The patient is an 11-year-old girl who has been complaining of intermittent right lower

quadrant pain and diarrhea for the past year. She is small for her age. Her physical

examination indicates some mild right lower quadrant tenderness and fullness.

Studies Results

Hemoglobin (Hgb), 8.6 g/dL (normal: >12 g/dL)

Hematocrit (Hct), 28% (normal: 31%-43%)

Vitamin B12 level, 68 pg/mL (normal: 100-700 pg/mL)

Meckel scan, No evidence of Meckel diverticulum

D-Xylose absorption, 60 min: 8 mg/dL (normal: >15-20 mg/dL)

120 min: 6 mg/dL (normal: >20 mg/dL)

Lactose tolerance, No change in glucose level (normal: >20 mg/dL rise in

glucose)

Small bowel series, Constriction of multiple segments of the small intestine

Diagnostic Analysis

The child’s small bowel series is compatible with Crohn disease of the small intestine.

Intestinal absorption is diminished, as indicated by the abnormal D-xylose and lactose

tolerance tests. Absorption is so bad that she cannot absorb vitamin B12. As a result, she has

vitamin B12 deficiency anemia. She was placed on an aggressive immunosuppressive

regimen, and her condition improved significantly. Unfortunately, 2 years later she

experienced unremitting obstructive symptoms and required surgery. One year after surgery,

her gastrointestinal function was normal, and her anemia had resolved. Her growth status

matched her age group. Her absorption tests were normal, as were her B12 levels. Her

immunosuppressive drugs were discontinued, and she is doing well.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
