From the time the project was introduced, organizational inertia was present in the way physicians responded to the changes that would be required to implement the new system. Board members had a lack of belief in the project and did not believe it could be done in 18 months. To help ease the anxiety over the implementation of the project, it would help for board members to see step-by-step plans for implementing the CPOE. It would also be beneficial to include any problems anticipated as well as ways to overcome them. Having a plan of action shows the board members that every aspect has been considered.

According to Citizen Schwarz Ag (C-S), Span Systems did not deliver on schedule and more to that, the quality of the deliverables were substandard with bugs in the testing stage. Citizen Schwarz Ag (C-S) therefore requested immediate rescission of the contract and release of the code. However sensible this might have been to them, Span systems had delivered over 50% of the deliverables therefore it would be breach of contract if the contract is cancelled. Citizen Schwarz was too concerned with the deliverables but it did not take into account the entire new user and system requirements that had changed over time causing delivery slips. The new changes have been difficult to accommodate within the existing budget and timeline.

Evidence - Based Practice Implementation and Sustainability Kim Reger National American University NS3305D – Evidence –Based Practice and Research in Nursing SP15 – Section DO1-121684 May 15, 2015 Abstract Healthcare worker’s desire for patient care practices that will result in the best possible outcome is a given. Unfortunately, successful implementation of Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) is often derailed and, for those processes that are instituted, many will fall by the way-side due to inconsistencies in every day work practice patterns. Determining strategies to mitigate and eliminate the cause for unsuccessful implementation or inability to sustain the process change will help the healthcare leadership team identify and implement other processes that will lead to success and better health outcomes. One possible solution to the implementation and sustainability issue with evidence-based practice is the creation of a strong foundation of charge nurses that has received additional leadership training, that possess not only knowledge about the evidence-based processes, but also possess leadership skills that will facilitate the consistent application of these best practices every day. Inconsistency will undermine any process plan.

This is began with piloting a single new process, followed by examining results and responding to what was learned by problem-solving and making adjustments, after which the next PDSA cycle would be initiated. According to Hughes (2008), the majority of quality improvement efforts using PDSA found greater success using a series of small and rapid cycles to achieve the goals for the intervention. The aims of effectiveness and safety are targeted through process-of-care measures, assessing whether providers of health care perform processes that have been demonstrated to achieve the desired aims and avoid those processes that are predisposed toward harm (American Academy Of Physical Medicine And Rehabilitation, 2008).

Currently, prescription costs are out of control and individuals are forced to choose between for or medicine and that is not good .There are millions of people without health insurance and the health care reform will hopefully alleviate this situation and health care will become a right .Health care should not be regarded as a commodity. The consumers of medical goods and services do not have a real choice on whether or not to purchase the prescriptions they are being prescribed by their physicians if they want to be healthy. Since prescriptions are necessary for the well being of its user, that person has no leverage from which to negotiate a fair price. For this reason, we feel health care cannot be viewed as a commodity to be bought and sold. You should not be denied medical treatment because you cannot afford the treatment.
As the years pass, modern medicine is advancing and benefiting humanity greatly. However, unlike doctor-assisted suicide, it cannot entirely eradicate the pain and distress of the dying process. Doctors are supposed to alleviate a patient's pain, if not, completely eliminate it. In addition, physicians do not have the capability of knowing what their patients are experiencing, and therefore should not force the patient to continue living against his or her will. Repeated efforts to heal patients are often considered inhumane and not medically sound.
