Athens Medical Claims Re-engineering

Athens Medical Claims Re-engineering

Athens Administrators is an open indemnity claims administration services organization. Athens identified a growing trend of future medical claims within their client’s population. The trend had begun to escalate and Athens decided that it was an important issue to bring to the clients attention and to jointly develop a strategy to address the growth of these claims. Athens looked to modify and improve the processes and procedures that were being utilized to address these claims. Read about what they did in their document titled “Future Medical – A Claim on the Rise” located at http://www.athensadmin.com/pdf/Athens-FutureMedical.pdf.

Article Review

Course Textbook APA Citation:

Stanwick, P. A., & Stanwick, S. D. (2014). Understanding business ethics (2nd ed.). Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage.

Unit II Article Review.

For this assignment, choose an article from SAGE Journal Articles on www.sagepub.com/stanwick by clicking the Student Resources tab then selecting Journal Articles on the left menu. You may choose any article from Chapters 1-3 so long as the article is at least five pages in length.

The purpose of this assignment is for you to practice reviewing articles that contribute to the industry. (I have included 3 separate articles for you to choose 1 for this assignment) The authors of these articles are researchers and professionals that have shared or experimented with ideas that demonstrate potential to improve the industry. As a professional in the industry, it is in your best interest to review the literature and trends. This provides you with the opportunity to read about what was successful and how they accomplished it. Plus, it allows you to analyze what was unsuccessful, how you can improve it, or at least avoid repeating the mistakes of others. These skills are vital when contributing to research papers and other scholarly writing. If you have not already, hopefully you’ll contribute to the industry by publishing an article and sharing with your community of peers.

As you read the articles, consider the following questions:

·        Who were the stakeholders in the article?

·        What was the firm’s corporate reputation?

·        How could the topic of this article apply to your personal or professional life?

·        How could it apply to an organization you have observed?

·        What conclusions can you draw about the ethical issues facing business leaders?

Your first paragraph should briefly introduce and summarize the article while identifying the author’s main points. Your Article Review should be at least 500 words in length, double spaced, 12pt New Times Roman font, with references and direct quotes in APA format. Title page, abstract, and running head are not required.

Answer the questions in the order they are asked and make sure you answer each and every question. Pull information from your readings.  The following is provided for you to use guidance or as bullet points in your slides:

–     Types of information you found during your footprinting along with a few screen captures (5-6 slides)

–     Attack methods you identified from the information gathered – Social engineering, DoS, SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting, Buffer Overflow, Remote Code Execution etc.

–     Social engineering Techniques – Impersonation, in person methods, over the phone, email phishing, phone number spoofing, exploiting human nature

–     Countermeasures to combat social engineering – train and educate employees, conduct Pen testing, search internet for corporate info to remove, develop document handing procedures, utilize strong authentication

–     Countermeasure for Footprinting – Develop defense in depth security plan to include social engineering methods, footprinting tactics, application security, network security, hardware configuration, pen testing, router configuration to deny data requests, close inactive ports and disable un used protocols, remove unnecessary info from web pages, deploy security devices to filter and reject footprint traffic

–     Org Web Server Vulnerabilities – Misconfigurations in OSs or networks, Bugs in OSs and Web application, Gaps created by server default settings, Unpatched security problems in applications, Gaps in security policies, procedures, or maintenance.

–     Common Threats to Web Application – MiM attacks, session hijacking, buffer overflow, cross site scripting, cookie manipulation, privilege escalation, malicious program infection

–     “Illustrate how SQL injection could destroy information:  go to your book and use the “illustration” that shows the actual character that would be used to perform an SQL injection.  DO NOT ATTEMPT A SQL INJECTION!!!! This is an academic discussion only.

UNIT III Case Study.

Read Case Study 1, “Bernie Madoff: How “One Big Lie” Can Destroy Thousands of Lives,” on pages 258-264. Summarize the overall viewpoint of the author, and discuss the major issues presented in the case. Review the “Questions for Thought.” Answer the four “Questions for Thought” using the business ethics principles from the textbook.

Your summary of the author’s viewpoint and your discussion of the major issues presented in the case must be in paragraph form. However, your responses to the four “Questions for Thought” can be answered either in paragraph form or as a numbered list. Ensure to include your summary of the author’s viewpoint, your discussion of the ethical issues facing Bernie Madoff, and your responses to the questions.

Deliverable length is a minimum of 500 words, double spaced, 12pt New Times Roman font.

Project Outline

MBA 6301 Unit IV Outline 

The Code of Ethics and Evaluation Paper is a significant project for this course. To stay on track, this assignment asks you to create an outline. Please review the Course Project in Unit VII, titled Code of Ethics and Evaluation Paper. An outline is a great way to organize the ideas that you want to communicate within a paper, or any form of writing.

For your outline, include the following:

1. Identify the topic. The topic of your paper is important. Try to sum up the point of your paper in one sentence or phrase that is original and topic focused, well developed, and thought provoking. This will help your paper stay focused on the main point.

2. Identify the main categories. What main points will you cover? The introduction usually introduces all of your main points, should flow logically, and is effectively linked to the main topic. Then the rest of paper can be spent developing those points.

3. Create the first category. What is the first point you want to cover? If the paper centers around a complicated term, a definition is often a good place to start. For a paper about a particular theory, giving the general background on the theory can be a good place to begin.

4. Create subcategories. After you have the main point, create points under it that provide support for the main point. The number of subcategories that you use depends on the amount of information you are going to cover; there is no right or wrong number to use as long as each point is compelling or persuasive in support of the main category. Keep in mind there are 15 content areas to the course project.

By convention, each category consists of a minimum of two entries. If your first category is Roman numeral I, your outline must also have a category labeled Roman numeral II; if you have a capital letter A under category I, you must also have a capital letter B. Whether you then go on to have capital letters C, D, E, is up to you, depending on the amount of material you are going to cover. You are required to have a minimum of two of each numbered or lettered categories.

Example:

I. First main category

A. First subcategory

B. Second subcategory

II. Second main category

A. First subcategory

B. Second subcategory

This assignment also allows you to work with your professor, who can offer guidance and direction to help you successfully complete the Code of Ethics and Evaluation Paper. The deliverable minimum length for this outline is 300 words, double spaced, 12pt New Times Roman font.
