Declining Trust in the Health Care System (The Trust Crisis)
Health reform is mired in the morass of multitier payment systems and
multiple modes of access, limited by the ability to seek and to pay.
Increasingly, patients are interacting with multiple entities within the
system, causing more and more confusion on the part of the patient.
According to recent research, patients’ trust in the system, providers,
and insurers continues to decline. This may result in a decline in
individual health and an increase in costs for health care.
Investigate the declining trust in the health care system from an ethical and moral position. You may use the four principles plus attention to scope model of Beauchamp and Childress or any other ethical model that you choose to address this.
