Healing Hospital: A Daring Paradigm GCU Spirituality in Health Care HLT-310v Dr. Meyer December 13, 2014 Healing Hospital: A Daring Paradigm Hospitals have made many changes over the years in their technologies as well as the way that cares are provided for the patients. Technology has changed the way nurses are charting they cares, procedures are performed via computers, and even surgeries are done by computer, which pushes the healthcare professionals to rely on computers. The technology should help make tasks easier for the healthcare field, but with everyone relying on computers if has also caused a shift in the interactions between staff and the clients. This paper will discuss the elements that are combined to create a “healing hospital,” the connections between healing and spirituality, and the significance to include both in the healthcare facilities. There is a great deal that goes into planning a building, especially if it is a hospital.
An EHR implementation may require changes in workflow. Get everyone excited about the implementation by discussing the benefits of each new function the system will bring. Receptionists will love the newly streamlined patient arrival process that no longer requires walking each patient chart to the rack; triage nurses will appreciate having each patient call documented, as well as the elimination of delays in pulling charts. Consider carefully all aspects of the workflow. You’ll gain the greatest benefit from your EHR by planning what you want the flow to be post implementation – instead of trying to duplicate the flow you had with the paper system.
Based on the information presented in this paper, EHRs can be beneficial to the healthcare industry by saving money and reducing errors but also can benefit the patient by having the doctors and hospitals they go to be more efficient, convenient, and allows the caregiver to spend more time with the patient instead of updating paperwork. With the ease of new software in development, healthcare facilities will train properly and quickly so they are not losing focus on the patient. Cost may be a major factor now why the healthcare industry has not already embraced this technology but that will soon change with the new incentive programs coming in the near future. By 2014, these incentives will be in place and the healthcare industry will grow in the 21st
The goal is that the new information system implementation will allow the company to provide better care for the patients, as well as for the company. When implementing an information system there is a lot that an organization looks at other than just the implementation process. The organization has to look at cost, training, how the stakeholders will adjust, as well as how this will help the organization all together. Well all want the organization to become better a grown with the way the technology is advancing what better way than to make an information implementation. This will help the company in many different ways as long as all steps are taken.
How do we become knowledge workers within our own organizations? Hammer (2004) suggests that we are entering an age where we will all be knowledge workers. I find some truth in that because we are always learning from our peers, our employees, and our supervisors. But it is necessary for us to know where that newfound knowledge comes from by finding its source. I am the type of person who wants to know everything and be the best at every task I perform, and doing the necessary work to identify the appropriate source of information will make that task just a bit easier.
Hopefully, there should be an increase in patient participation that will improve their health. In terms of medical errors & improving patient outcomes, EHRs system is a great solution in improving disease diagnosis ability and mitigating medical errors. It’s reported that 94% of providers had report that their EHR do have records readily available at point of care, as well as 88% report that their EHR provides clinical benefits 6. In addition, medical practice efficiencies & cost savings are also the reason why we are switching to EHRs system. Reducing transcription costs, chart uses, re-filing, medical errors, and errors of reimbursement codes are just a few benefits that we are expecting to see once the new system is ready: 79% of providers report that with an EHR, more
To cap it all off, you have to pass a state licensing exam to officially be considered an MD and start practicing medicine in the real world. This amount of schooling is necessary because they need to be reliable and trustworthy for their patients. The most important skills out of the many needed in this career are communication and multitasking. As a doctor, you interact with patients and fellow doctors daily and are also thrown into hectic situations. Multi tasking is a much need skill because OBGYN’s are constantly on the move whether they are on call or are seeing patients all day in the office.
The end goal should be about the betterment of all people and not for individual selfish gains. Yes, it cannot be denied that since the healthcare debate involves numerous professions, people, and companies. However, instead of just looking at individual selfish gains, people are forgetting to see that if health coverage is provided for all, it ends up saving everyone’s money, the government, the businesses, the people, and the health care facilities. The government saves money because more people will be able to afford health care and have access to care when they need, which helps them live healthier lives. This, in the end, helps prevent illness and diseases which could have gone untreated if the people did not have health insurance.
I have chosen to make my new healthcare system as easy for people as possible. People would not mind doctor’s visits if they did not have to wait as long, if they felt like the doctor truly cared, and if they felt like the doctor had the time for, his or her patient. My new system will make a patient feel like, he or she will be the only patient the doctor has. Ambulatory care is important for more efficient service for patients, so my care centers are split up into pieces to make them more efficient if a person is getting an outpatient surgery then he or she will go to a different building with an appointment so the doctors have the time for the patient. Blood tests and x-rays will be separate and appointments will be necessary so the
Recent technological advancements within the health care sector have greatly improved the efficiency and productivity of hospitals, clinics diagnostics and health administration services in terms of making patient’s records more accessible to both the patient and their provider. Technology related to health care is important because the use of technology has allowed great advancements in the health care field as far as medical equipment and patients medical records. With the use of technology and as it advances hopefully it won’t be long before there is a cure develop for cancer. Technology has made it easier and more convents for patients to access their medical records without the use of technology there would still be medical errors being made. Technology has also made it easier for doctors to offer more treatment options to their patients as well as treating patients faster by having the ability to go inside their medical records.
