Initial Post: How can demographic market data influence health care business decisions? Provide details.
Classmate:Lane:….Demographic market data can influence health care business decisions because it changes day by day and year after year. Demographics can help know what certain groups need attention and the most help. Physicians want to give their patients the best quality care as possible and to do that they must first collect demographic data. Demographic data could include age, sex, race, income, education, nationality, etc. The collection of the demographic data could help put together treatment plans for certain races and nationalities. By creating a standardized process for collecting this information, physicians, clinics, and health systems can take steps to ensure all patients have the potential to reach optimal treatment outcomes (Berg, 2018). Health care managers can target more than one issue once data is collected. They can put together a plan for hypertension seeing which treatment will work best for different patients. Some patients may just need to take a pill every day, and others may need to use inhibiters. By collecting the demographic data will also generate more revenue for the organization which will help get more supplies and better equipment to treat patients.

Professor: I appreciate your response to this week’s Discussion Board Question. One important aspect when gathering market demographic data is to consider race and ethnic backgrounds both of which can influence the delivery of medical services in a community.
Class – Building on this thought how should a hospital for example reach out to these people in the context of such diversity? Do you think people should use the emergency room of a hospital to seek primary health care?
