This in return will prompt the patient to alert his or her physician. And allow the patients to be treated outside a hospital setting and more physicians would treat from their office or even the patients home. I do believe this technology will same millions of dollars in the Healthcare industry. Another benefit of using the monitor will also make the patients feel more independent and maintain a better quality of life. Rajecki, R. ( 2009), Mandatory staffing ratio: boon or bane?
Offices such as this strive to prevent the devastating impact health care absenteeism creates. With a focus on preventative measures, such as family planning services and health screenings, the financial and other burdens disease and poor health create for the patient, family, and region are lessened (NCPP, 2009). While many of the patients that were treated had multiple comorbidities, the clinic staff strives to overcome costly and perhaps deadly complications by providing services, including educating clients, at little to no cost to minimize economic strain and maximize health benefits. Because of an increase in the lack of insurance availabilities to this population, clinics such as this will have a positive impact not just for those it serves directly, but to the region as a whole. This was evident at my day at the clinic by being able to participate, learn, and synthesize what a positive impact services like this provide for so many that are in need.
But, now by increasing productivity of the staff to reduce the expense, there is no time for staff to develop a good relationship with patients. So, rather than investigating about any psychological reasons for the disease, a problem-focused physical treatment is providing for the patients. Most importantly, technology is playing a vital role in reducing the patient- health provider interactions. "Telehealth" provides most of the information about the patient. But, there is some improvement in patient care like bedside manner and psychologist's new integrated treatment method.
Thomas about her disease and its outcome may be needed. Explaining how cancer metastasis and what to expect at each stage will give Mrs. Thomas a sense of control. It will allow her to make informed decisions about her own care such as; implementing advance directives and or code status documents. Reiterate that pain control will give her more quality time with loved ones and allow her to be independent for as long as possible. The goal is to keep her pain under control if not completely relieved.
Final Organizational Quality Improvement Plan Holly Zimmerman HCS/588 April 4, 2011 Tracy Miller Executive Summary All organizations, if they are truthful with themselves, have room to improve the quality of service they give to their customers. Whether it is the services that are offered or the care that a patient is given when visiting their establishment, Mid-Columbia Medical Center continually works as a team to ensure that everything is done to the best of their ability and to the levels of which their patients have been accustomed to. Time Management is an issue for everyone and Mid-Columbia is no different. One of the major complaints that are often heard from patients is the time they spend in an emergency room or
However, financial factors are extremely important reasons to carefully choose which care a person will receive. Additionally, managed care organizations are trying to eliminate unnecessary costs for insurance companies, doctors and physicians, and the patients who receive the medical bills. It is easy to imagine how difficult it would be balancing all of these things while making everyone happy. However, it makes the most sense to me, that only those who actually need the specialty services should be the ones who receive
Utilization of this process will provide a mechanism for staff to have input into the required changes and may promote a positive working environment, tearing down the barriers faced by this department. Units that are enabled to act autonomously and define for themselves how to carry out their mission will be less receptive to changes suggested by an unknown entities (invisible policy makers) than will units in which commanders define the mission (Bazerman, 1984). The TQM model empowers employers by empowering employees. In health care, continuous quality improvement (CQI) is used interchangeably with total quality management (TQM), (Bailey, 2007). CQI has been used as a means to develop clinical practice and is based on the principle that there is an opportunity for improvement in every process and on every occasion (Bailey, 2007).
Can they live with the modifications they have made? How well is the patient internalizing this information and claiming it as their own? Will this patient be able to progress to be more in control of their blood pressures? Do they understand the areas involved in improving their health and can they improvise proper alternatives when the routine goes amiss? There is much to consider in Bloom’s Taxonomy that we do every day in our professions without realizing.
Analysis of the use of technology in health care shows favorable, and the future of health care technology and patient information systems will only continue to grow. Technology allows patients to remain in their home and have their disease process monitored remotely. Patients have the opportunity to participate actively in their health care and maintenance by using telemonitoring devices. Electronic devices to monitor values, such as blood pressure and heart rate readings, pulse oximetry, and pacemaker monitors are also used remotely. The use of technology has been effective in assisting to reduce health care costs for individuals because they are more closely monitored and are proactive in detecting complications before they become severe enough to require further treatment or hospitalization.
Personal goals is something everyone in the health care relationship is going to have; like the physician saving time, or the patient needing reassurance. Personal goals can be very important when trying to understand a patient and their needs. I feel that knowing one’s personal goals, you can get a better understanding of that person. Interdependence is also very important because it looks at things leading up to the health care conversation, like the receptionist that is very cold and not friendly. That one receptionist can change the whole mood of the patient, which continuing on into the visit with the physician.
