Although no substantial problems arose at this point I feel that significant changes at this stage will speed up things throughout the fulfillment process: Improved patient database: The improved database need to tackle two issues: o The first being the “No Refill Allowed” issue. Tech personal need to keep a track of how many refills one prescription has and input the number of refills allowed, the expiry of the prescription and the date issued along with details of the medication. Although this is a tedious process at first, in the long run CVS can build up a database of their patients refillable medication and the problem of ineligible scripts are now solved. o The second improvement would be to keep a track of the commonly used Insurance companies and have these companies provide their formularies. This would be beneficial to CVS and the insurance companies as customers and pharmacists or tech personnel need not bother the insurance companies to check if their customers are covered for certain kinds of medications.
In many physicians’ offices now days, it is common to find compliance codes on the physical form that is filled out by the physician. This process only helps to make sure that as few mistakes as possible are made in the coding and billing process. One of the most important factors in the coding process is accurately matching diagnoses and procedures, in order to avoid any possibilities of a claim being rejected. This is also important in the assurance of reimbursement to a medical professional for correct procedures. If an incorrect procedure is sent for billing, the result could be a physician being delayed a payment, or, missing out on payment altogether.
The Milgram’s experiment showed that it is very important how the orders are given and by whom. Most people would follow orders given by an official, uniformed experimenter and an ordinary man giving orders would be less of authority. Two experimenters giving contradictory instructions confuse 'the teacher' and make it all even less serious. (199 words) How and why Milgram’s research on obedience is relevant to preparing student nurses for working on hospital wards. When you decide to become a nurse, you think that you will be saving lives, making sick people’s lives easier and heal them.
“The second prong of the strategy was directed toward the hospitals and was focused on improving efficiencies in basic health care and outpatient services” (Blanchard & Thacker, 2013, p. 51). The External Environment of MHC and how the Strategy Aligns The external environment of MHC operates in accordance with the governmental regulations and insurance required procedures. The government was pressuring health care institutions to reduce their fees. “The federal and state governments were putting increasing pressure on health care institutions to reduce costs” (Blanchard & Thacker, 2013, p. 51). Many of the patients that were receiving treatment at MHC were doing so as an outpatient; which meant beds were going unused.
EBT1 TASK 3 Research Integration and Outcome Evaluation Deborah Tyrrell-Turner Western Governors University A1. Procedure Studies have shown that the procedure of shaving a surgical site prior to surgery increases the likelihood of postoperative surgical site infections. Studies have indicated that shaving the surgical site before surgery can cause a change in or loss of protective skin flora at the incision line, as well as micro trauma of the area increasing the colonization of bacteria, (Celik & Kara, 2007). The Institute for Healthcare Improvements, (IHI) has recommended the avoidance of shaving surgical sited unless it is absolutely necessary for the procedure. They recommend using clippers to remove hair before surgery, outside of the operating room, (IHI, 2013).
Currently Shouldice uses their success rate, great word of mouth promotion, extreme customer satisfaction, and specialty service to entice customers into wanting their services. They separate themselves clearly from competition with their services and do a very good job delivering value to their customers. Not only does the hospital have excellent immediate service, but it has shown long-term growth and expansion. Due to the fact of the massive wait list to book appointments and surgery, it does not seem like management of Shouldice should change it’s marketing to change positioning. Shouldice should remain firm in publishing positive results and outcomes while continuously upholding their reputation and demand for service and impeccable word of mouth promotion from previous patients.
