The Allied Health Community is an opportunity to experience real-life scenarios that would occur within a health care facility. Within the Allied Health Community, you will be able to experience five health care settings: hospital, transitional care, primary care, community clinic, and home health. These settings may include detailed scenarios and helpful tools like an operational budget. Using these scenarios, you will be able to apply critical thinking to solve realistic health care issues and gain experience similar to what you would be exposed to in a health care setting

They found out that â€œbetter communication increases positive patient outcomesâ€ thus, leading to increased service satisfaction (quality metric). On the ot
