Answer:

The ANA's (American nurses association) Health System Reform Agenda clearly states that healthcare should provide follow-up care to the clients in the first point of the agenda. It also states that the hospital should respect client and his family. Three agenda items of ANA are as follows:
1. Health care should be provided in settings which give follow-up care and treatment at a reasonable price.
2. Healthcare should be available during convenient hours at every location to the clients with accommodation facility to the family. People with disabilities are ought to be provided services for the whole lifespan.
3. Healthcare should be culturally respectful and appropriate of clients and their families. They should involve the client in the decision making.
Out of these 3, the second agenda is most important in the current world. Developed countries have better healthcare services and facilities in comparison to the developing countries.
However, there is still scope of improvement. Developing countries have a poor healthcare infrastructure and the shortage of medicines, physicians and other basic needs of healthcare are still exist there.
The first agenda is related to the cost of the treatment provided. People have right to the reasonably priced healthcare. Many of the current medicines and treatment are so expensive due to high manufacturing and research cost.
Above all, pharmaceutical companies, biomedical instrument manufacturers, and private healthcare institutes are indulge in heavy profit-making. Therefore, ensuring the cost-effective healthcare is important too.
Healthcare system should take into minds the cultural, religious and psychological differences of the clients and their relatives. They must be provided with the accommodation facility and if possible, their doubts should be cleared. The client should be involved in the decision-making related his health care and treatments.
