The Increasing Rates of Caesarean Sections in Birthrates
The Increasing Rates of Caesarean Sections in Birthrates
The caesarean rates have increased in the current times despite the risks associated with this procedure as well as the high costs of performing this procedure (Barber et al., 2011). There is a lot of research providing information on the increase of this aspect, which is meant to provide solutions to minimize the usage of this procedure as well as provide strategies to improve the effectiveness of this procedure (Barber et al., 2011). There are reasons why most women are opting for this procedure with some of the reasons being attributed to the risks involved on their health. However, it is important that everyone clearly understands this procedure and the different aspects, which surround this procedure (Barber et al., 2011).
It is also important that healthcare stakeholders have adequate information related to this procedure, which will help them in implementing effective policies and strategies to improve the effectiveness of the procedure (Betrán et al., 2016). The two research studies are important to healthcare delivery in the United States as they are aimed at explaining and providing more information related to the increase in caesarean rates (Sidani, 2015). Information is important in the different sectors of the government including the health care sector as this forms the basis for effective decision-making process (Sidani, 2015). These two research studies provide information on different indications, which contribute to the increase in the caesarean rates as well as the risks, associated with this procedure.
This information will help healthcare stakeholders in making effective recommendations based on the results collected from the two research studies (Sidani, 2015). Research and data monitoring of healthcare delivery in the United States provides major functions of transforming the healthcare sector by providing information after an analysis of different healthcare aspects (Sidani, 2015). Information gathered from research provides more insights on different healthcare aspects to patients as well as healthcare providers, which is used to improve the effectiveness of the healthcare delivery system (Sidani, 2015). For policy makers to implement effective strategies, they rely on information provided by research, which helps them in making appropriate interventions and minimize the costs of healthcare delivery (Sidani, 2015).
Potential environments within healthcare delivery appropriate to research and data monitoring include performing leadership responsibilities, which require adequate research to help healthcare leaders in implementing effective leadership approaches (Bowling, 2014). Research provides information on the most effective leadership strategies based on the organizational environment (Bowling, 2014). Another potential environment within healthcare delivery appropriate to research and data monitoring is in the adoption of effective healthcare interventions. Healthcare interventions impact healthcare outcomes which makes it important to base this decisions on research as this provides information on the outcome of certain interventions (Bowling, 2014).
The research studies have a high impact on healthcare delivery by providing information on different aspects, which are attributed to the increase in caesarian section rates. This information is intended to influence healthcare delivery explanations on why caesarean rates have increased which is aimed to influence healthcare stakeholders in their decision-making process (Bowling, 2014). The first article about the indications contributing to the increasing cesarean delivery rate will impact the healthcare delivery by providing important information to healthcare stakeholders which will help them in developing effective strategies to improve maternal health (Barber et al., 2011). The second article about the increasing trend in caesarean section rates will impact healthcare delivery by providing information to healthcare stakeholders who will effectively plan their resources to minimize the costs associated with caesarian procedures (Betrán et al., 2016).
This will also enable the stakeholder to address the risks associated with the caesarean section procedure. An allied health professional mat play an important role in research and data monitoring of health care delivery in the United States by providing important information which will help the researcher in developing accurate and effective research (Bowling, 2014). Allied health professionals are important parties in the delivery of healthcare due to their roles in healthcare (Bowling, 2014). Allied health professionals play an important role in providing evidence-based information, which is important to researchers in developing effective healthcare research (Bowling, 2014). This is because allied health professionals are adequately informed on the different aspects of their profession and are better placed to provide accurate information to contribute to effective research (Bowling, 2014).
