...Nextgen for Airports Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Abstract Rarely in the world of academia does a student get to write a paper on something they are actually interested in. That is exactly what has happened in my case this term. From my days in the United States Air Force I’ve been fascinated by aircraft, aircraft technology, and how the daily operations of the worlds flights are coordinated. Nextgen is the future of aircraft travel technology, and this paper will explain its past, present, and future. What is Nextgen? NextGen stands for Next Generation Air Transportation System. NextGen is a transformative change in the way aircraft flight is managed, and the operations of how we fly. NextGen enhances safety, reduces delays, saves fuel and reduces aviation’s adverse environmental impact. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been in the process of intergrating new and existing technologies for many years now. This is a comprehensive effort to conduct the largest aircraft travel transformation in the history of flight.

...children and what medical coverage they may have and how healthcare reform should help get almost all children some type of healthcare. Currently, if a child is not covered under private insurance, Medicaid and CHIP can assist in covering the vulnerable groups, mostly because they are likely to be poor, belong to racial or ethnic minority groups or who have chronic health care problems. While both public and private insurance fail in meeting the needs of children, public coverage has been more persuasive than private coverage at providing managed health care to low-income children. Ideally health care reform could cause certain steps to promote the emotional, cognitive, and physical health of children, enable them to maximize their full potential. Such a focus would create application to such policy changes that could define solutions for failures in the current system and decrease discrepancy in access, quality, and outcomes. Healthcare Reform for Children The plan is set in place to overhaul the nation’s health care system. The goals of the health care reform proposals include moving the nation toward universal coverage, improving quality of care, and slowing the rate of health care cost growth. Many populations of U.S. groups are waiting for the “effects” of this new health care proposal. There are many opinions and fears that are associated with the talks and implementations of various healthcare policies. One group that specific consideration......

...about meeting the new standards expected in healthcare of they will face lawsuits and tort actions that could destroy their careers (Qazi, 2012). The healthcare debate in the United States has been dominating the industry since President Obama passed key legislation that will forever change the American medical system. Arguments against healthcare reform stem largely from the provisions and laws that are being proposed by Obamacare. The restructured proposals have drawn many opponents, especially in the healthcare and insurance industry. Primarily, the argumentative claim is that the costs to practice medicine and insure all patients will not be sustainable. Additionally, the increase in the amount of patients that will flood the system will demand an increase in medical insurance premium costs, drive down competition, and lower the overall quality of care that Americans are used to receiving. For private physicians, the demands placed on their practices to meet and maintain the new laws and regulations will drive doctors out of private practice according to many economists (Qazi, 2012). The arguments for healthcare restructuring in the U.S. stem from both a moral argument and a leveling of the playing field approach. Proponents of healthcare reform take issue with the fact so many millions of Americans are uninsured or unable to obtain quality healthcare and they want to correct the system by putting in place laws that demand healthcare for all citizens in some form.......

...1. B. Healthcare is about treatment of a medical problem. The main theme is that when a person is ill and requires treatment he goes to a hospital or clinic where appropriate care can be provided by healthcare professionals. Healthcare is part of public healthcare. Public health has its components of health prevention and promotion. It looks at all other factors that affect a person’s health and not only his medical needs. It compromises every aspect (Who.int, 2013) stated the determinants of health includes the physical, social, economic environment as well as the person’s individual characteristics. Medicine has a primary focus on individual.it provides personal services to individuals within the social responsibilities. The main idea or concern is emphasis on disease and its diagnosis. Emphasis is directly on the treatment and care of the patient. There is a uniform system for certification of specialists and Medical places major emphasis on medical care with organized lines of specialization. (Hsph.harvard.edu, 2013). Public Health has its primary focus on populations.it has a service ethic.it has concerns for the individual as a holistic person. It emphasizes on disease prevention and health promotion for the whole community. It employs a spectrum of interventions aimed at the environment, human behavior and lifestyle, and medical care. There are certifications of specialists beyond professional public health degree. Lines of specialization are organized. Life......

...QUALITY OF LIFE IN HEALTHCARE SETTINGS Quality of Life in Healthcare Settings; a Christian Approach September 20, 2013. In the Healthcare industry there are many different settings in which the various methods of care are delivered. It is important to always ensure that quality of life is a high priority, and carried out effectively. Quality of life is a multifaceted concept including five components: lifestyle pursuits, living environment, palliation, human factors, and personal choices. (Shi & Singh 2002).These factors need to have industry wide support from a funding and technological aspect to achieve success. Focusing on advancing healthcare settings and improving the care and quality of life from a Christian Worldview perspective is important to the medical industry. During my first enlistment in the U.S. Navy I was shot while on a reconnaissance mission in Kuwait. I was taken to the USNS Mercy, a hospital ship used during war time, this was a memorable experience. The Naval ship is painted white with a large red cross to designate it as a medical vessel. Firing on the hospital ship would be deemed a war crime, and I cannot recall this ever happening. There is a large berthing ward with approximately 1,000 beds, as well as most other amenities found in a land based care facility. I had the bullets removed, wounds dressed and treated to prevent any infection. The crew of medical professionals and physicians made me feel......

The NAS in the United States is at capacity that has led to the ongoing problem of delays in departures and arrivals and to mention the safety concern for overcrowded skies and airports. The overhaul of the NAS was over due and with the abundance of technologies available NextGen technologies will ensure that the United States not only has an airspace system that is safe but also is one that is sustainable. The National Airspace System (NAS) as we know it is at capacity and without a plan for upgrade in the near future; this was found out when a study was conducted on the NAS and its capabilities in 2001. The NAS without upgrade or overhaul would continue to operate itself into the ground. With take off and arrival delays continuing to...

...Funding the Rising Cost of Healthcare Kershena Thomas Health Services Organization May 18, 2014 Crystal Russell, Instructor Funding the Rising Cost of Healthcare The United States’ total health care cost is expected to rise to about $4.8 trillion in 2021. That increase will be up from $75 billion from the 1970s. Health care spending will be responsible for approximately 20 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), simply stated it will equate to approximately one-fifth of the U.S. economy (Galewitz, 2010). Nearly 51 percent of the country’s spending goes towards the cost of medical services provided by physicians and hospitals, while prescription drugs account for about 10 percent. Private hospitals only receive approximately 3.75 percent of the nation’s overall health care spending. Some consumers as well as employers face hardships trying to afford health insurance premiums; therefore, many employers are unable to afford to offer healthcare to their employees. This is especially common in companies that employ less than 10 employees. With the constant rise in healthcare cost, about 49 million Americans were uninsured in 2012, while those who were insured faced an increase of 7.2 percent causing costs to exceed $20,000 for families. A comprehensive analysis of the impact of health care reform and a synopsis of where healthcare would be without reform was conducted by The Council of Economic Advisers (CEA). The analysis also included a report that......

Nextgen Ils

...Approaching ILS in NextGen Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Abstract Currently the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the aviation industry are working towards a revolutionary revitalization of how air traffic will be controlled in National Airspace System (NAS) in the future. The goal of the effort behind the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) is to provide for safer and more efficient operations in the NAS. The backbone of this modernization will rely on celestial based systems such as the Global Position System (GPS) to provide the primary source of all navigation information during all phases of flight from taxiing, take-off, enroute, approach, and landing. It is the final two phases of flight, approach and landing, that require the greatest level of precision and continuity, and which will witness the largest change; the eventual elimination of the Instrument Landing System (ILS). Today, ILS offers the most accurate method of safely guiding pilots into a landing in low to almost no visibility conditions. NextGen plans for the elimination of this system in favor of a combination of GPS and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B), and eventually ILS would not even be available for redundancy purposes. For such a critical phase of flight not only is an ILS currently the most accurate system, it should also be available for the foreseeable future to mitigate the lapses in the available GPS and INS technologies.

...Health care information system terms Medical paper records are a thing of the past, and health care settings are utilizing a computerized health care information system to provide efficient care. The computerized health care information system is computers and electronic applications “which” provides documents of medical care. However, within the healthcare information system there are terms “which “must be identified for the system to be ran successfully. The most common health care information system terms includes several types of healthcare record such as electronic medical records, electronic health record, and computerized physician order entry. This paper will describe health care information system terms and how the system must adhere to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act regulations. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability ACT The Health Insurance portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a public law enacted by congress in 1996, which consist of two title parts. The first title consists of the act” which” protects workers and their families from losing health coverage when a change or loss of job takes place. The second is the establishment of national standards for electronic health record as well as national identities for health care providers, health insurance plans, and employers. The second part of the HIPAA act also protects the privacy and security of a patient’s health information......

...Three Ideas That May Improve the Performance of Healthcare Abstract This paper explores eight published articles, and one book that report on results from research conducted on three big ideas that represent great opportunities to improve the performance of healthcare organizations. Three articles explain the helpfulness of virtual teaming, two articles and one book explains the benefits of outsourcing, and the last three articles explain why customer relationship management, also known as CRM, is a helpful resource. This paper will define the management practice or breakthrough idea, discuss the expected impact on improved patient outcomes, higher levels of customer satisfaction, and identify the critical success factors associated with implementing these programs in a health services organization. These management practices or breakthrough ideas, in my judgment, will be ranked the greatest, second greatest, and third greatest potential benefit for healthcare organizations. Healthcare is one of the biggest organizations around. Because of its size, and the many departments within a healthcare cooperation there is much need for organization between management, staff and their patients. There are many ways to make sure that a healthcare system operates smoothly. I agree with Martin Van Buren when he stated that it is easier to do a job right, then to explain why you didn’t. In this paper there will be three ideas that may get the job done right such as, virtual......

...Defining Terms in the Healthcare Industry Ashley Manazanares HCS 235 May 9, 2011 Ann Teske When entering the field of healthcare, it is highly important to understand specific terms in the industry to be successful. Knowing how certain policies, insurances, and medical care work together is imperative for an individual’s growth. Two major terms that should be looked at and completely defined are Medicare and Medicaid. These two programs supply insurance to millions. It is also significant to understand public health, ambulatory care, long-term care, and what it takes to actually become a physician working in the American medical field. First and foremost what is health? Health is an individuals’ well-being physically, mentally and socially. Improving one’s health and the health of people in same community all around the world is public health. Through education, promotion of healthy living and research for disease and injury prevention, public health is the intent to protect and improve community health. The many achievements of public health in the 20th century have improved the quality of life. There has been an increase in life expectancy, decline in child mortality, and removal and reduction of many transmissible diseases (Turnock, 2004). Public Health has made Americans realize the importance of a healthy lifestyle so illness may be minimized. When an individual does get ill they sometimes see a physician who has been through......
