If scientific management was the poor idea that some considered it to be, why was it so widely adopted in the early part of the 1900s during the industrial revolution? Provide at least one example of where it is still in use today in health care settings and why it has not been updated.

Its sole purpose was to encourage production, which it did by rewarding employees for productivity and penalizing them for inactivity. This resulted in a very stressful work environment that was prone to employee injury and burnout.
As a result of its negative impact on working conditions, scientific management has since been abandoned by most industries. However, it is still in use today in health care settings as evidenced by medical coding. Medical coders are evaluated based on their productivity levels and are penalized if they make mistakes while coding medical files. This encourages coders to work quickly even if they have to skip over important details when reviewing documentation to ensure proper coding. It also encourages them to use pre-existing code sets instead of creating new codes for unusual diagnoses or treatments. It is because of this that some practitioners have difficulty finding codes for their more unique cases.
Unfortunately, though scientific management is no longer considered a sound practice in most industries, it continues to be used in certain health care settings such as medical coding because it can be difficult to modify existing policies that are already in place and functioning smoothly from an administrative
