The inception and inclusion of Information Technology in healthcare provision is a subject of constant debate in the modern society. With increased research on how medicare can be improved through Information Technology, there are varied opinions and studies that try to validate these viewpoints and how they can enhance the healthcare provision experience. This is a great challenge in the sense that people question the government and healthcare institutions regarding their financial development and technological standpoints, especially for the rural areas. This essay gives possible reactions and responses on the ‘Health IT in Small and Rural Communities’ article by the AHRQ.

Channels for Direct Healthcare Provision

            The decentralization and provision of healthcare services in Sweden and United Kingdom have a different approach, especially on the rural areas. According to the information from the tax models funded under the governments of these countries, there are inputs in the financial control departments that act effectively for the satisfaction and engagement of the approaches. The networks developed in the local regions help in connecting further services received from the urban societies, different from the remote areas. However, the models of preparation differ as per the restrictions and policies used to safeguard the healthcare services and people within the areas. Such channels have an impact on the provision of the modern healthcare technology, which would be assessed as per the requirement and development of the twenty first century notion (West et al, 2010). As such, the approaches have a sensitization ideology that should be considered as part of recognizing the efforts of Sweden and the United Kingdom governments.

The National Health Service for the United Kingdom, which was first implemented in 1984, has significance in the recognition of stable living for the poor within the rural areas. However, the mobility and approach tend to assume obligations such as the machines used for the treatment of terminal illnesses, which depend on the modern approach for growth and development, (Konde-Lule et al, 2010).  The views attract various decision making processes, which narrow down to basic information technology that would help in the advancement and knowledge of the necessary steps required for such views. The laws implemented to govern healthcare societies and institutions which were enforced in the 1900s, have an impact on different healthcare services and forums as outlined by the governments of the respective healthcare departments. However, the financial access and costs for verification and provision of the services are a challenge to the rural communities. Such experiences occur in Canada, Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Sweden.

Outcomes for the Provision

Assessments of acquisition are based on the access of financial policies used for interventions of the comparative data for different countries, but within the provision and satisfaction approach. Universal access is determined in this case through the government ownership, specifically in Sweden and United Kingdom, a national, mandatory social as well as private insurance used in Canada, have an impact for different views in the performance and provision of services.
