The use of smart phones and broadband-enabled devises has allowed patients to do their own monitoring of vital signs and body functions and upload them to their medical provider’s clinical servers (Meingast, M./ Roosta, T./Sastry, S., 2006). They even have the ability to do videoconferencing via their phones for remote consultations with their doctors. Using technology to take advantage of remote monitoring systems is allowing patients to take a very active approach in prevention and care. But patients aren’t the only ones adapting to the new technologies available. Hospitals are also evolving
I came to know how the system works while people are seeking health care services from ER. When patients arrived in ER, they are categorized based on their acuity level from 1 to 5 by triage nurse at triage room. Triage level 1 are the patients who need immediate care and doctor must see them immediately. Triage level 2 are the patients who needs immediate care and doctor and nurses must see them with in 15 minutes of their arrival. Triage levels 3 are patients who need care soon and doctor and nurses should see them within next 30 minutes or so.
Most nurses usually work in healthcare facilities unless they are home health care providers such as school nurses or for the elderly. RNs are mostly found in the healthcare facilities such as hospitals or doctors’ offices. Taking on this job requires a lot of standing, walking, and sitting for hours on end. The RNs must be able to handle stressful situations because they never know what they will see in the work area. The nurse could go from something small to seeing blood everywhere from an emergency that just occurred.
The bedside technology gives clinicians the information about the patients more immediately and is accurate and updated and shared to the whole team. It can ensure that the changes in the patient’s condition are made known in real time and help to ensure early recognition and action toward the patients. This mobile technology also enables the doctors and nurses to spend more time with their patients. Furthermore, the clinicians can also use the tools to communicate with the patients to check on their conditions. There is also a new 'paediatric early warning system', which is faster, more sensitive, and more reliable at identifying the sickest patients and those who show
The primary audience is the hospitals or clinic staff. Like the instructional document, the audience is dealing with medical research; however, the audience is explained as a problem for nurses or doctors doing blood transfusion. The secondary audience includes the patients and the upper-level managers of the hospital. September 22, 20172Possible external audiences include other scientists or people working for other hospitals or clinics that specialize in blood transfusion. Situational AnalysisThe context of the steroid pulse therapy document is mainly focused on medical research.
During its infancy, Telenursing mostly comprised of nurses giving healthcare guidance via the phone and eventually branched out to include Public Health Nurses. Since the continued growth of technology, telenursing has expanded and is capable of assisting the nurses to remotely complete tasks such as, conduct interviews, assess and monitor clients, view diagnostic images and provide health education (Hebda & Czar 2013). According to the Journal of Advanced Nursing (JAN), Telenursing is complex and knowledge intensive (Ernesater, Holmstrom, & Ergstrom 2009). In researching telenursing, I realize that my role as a Case Manager encompasses facets of Telenursing. For instance, I teach
Electronic health records make it possible for health care providers to manage your care better through secure use and sharing of health information. EHR makes going to the doctor so much better because of the efficiency of the program and the amount of time a physician can spend with you. Hospitals that use EHR have a three to four percent lower mortality rate than those that do not. The EHR provides a central location of a patient’s medical history, therefore physicians can access the information easier and quicker with will prevent errors. The EHR has many advantages.
The reason for this is there will be a shortage of Psychiatrists, Social Workers, and Psychologists leaving their professions. Access to healthcare will be through the local DHHS offices, online, and over the phone. The problems with that is over the phone is being put on hold for periods of time just to have a question answered and hoping you get the right one. Online, you are able to access more information and read about what is going on. Any questions you have, you can just type into the computer and come up with several answers from the insurance company website itself or from other sites.
Ordinary cardiologists need additional training to qualify to be a surgeon. Most doctors and surgeons are on call due to the unpredictability of their jobs and the human body. Surgeons who specialize in cardiac health have special equipment which they use to ease the state of their patient. Pacemakers are often installed onto their patients to prolong their lives and reduce the risk of heart attacks. Constant supervision is necessary when one of these instruments is placed onto a patient.
Understanding the Patient Intake Process HCR/220 Sunday September 9, 2012 Understanding the Patient Intake Process The patient process can vary from office to office, and can be very time consuming. Basically, the patient intake process is gathering and retrieving information for new and established patients to ensure efficient and effective service. Understanding the patient intake process will ensure that patients receive the medical services they need and that they are billed appropriately for those services. When checking in a patient you may choose to "process" the patient- this means reviewing the patient's demographics, insurance coverage, scanning insurance cards or drivers license, collecting a co-pay, printing a receipt, etc. By providing an efficient intake process, a certain flow can be maintained to move the process along smoothly and more organized.
