Doctors – If we take a client to the doctors it is essential that we are able to inform the doctor of any relevant information required otherwise this may result in a misdiagnosis. Some clients are unable to communicate very well so we must first understand their problem so that we can convey this on their behalf. 1.2 Explain how communication affects all relationships in an adult social care setting. Communication can lead to good or poor service within a care setting. Good communication with clients encourages participation in activities therefore promoting equality within the care setting.
The Chief Operation Officer needs to collaborate with other departments (e.g., Chief Medical Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operations Officer, etc.) to direct compliance issues thru existing channels for investigation and resolution to make sure that the services provided are meeting the needs of the patients. Patton-Fuller Community Hospital goal is to make the patients experience as pleasant as possible, so improvements must constantly be made to keep up with the needs of the patients. If a patient’s needs are not being met because the hospital does not have the required equipment an action plan would have to be made to make sure the hospital is meeting their standards set by their mission statement. To purchase the required equipment an action plan would be set and different departments would have to collaborate to make it happen as quick and painless as possible.
It is necessary that the system be easy for physicians and staff to use, while also functioning at the level the staff needs to do their job efficiently and effectively. Lastly, the organization must consider the rules and regulations set forth by the government in such guidelines as HIPAA. The system must provide the organization with the security needed to provide patients with the security that is mandated. By looking at all of these stakeholders and answering the needs of the organization, the system can function properly. Conclusion In conclusion, there are many aspects that an organization needs to consider prior to purchasing any health information system.
Burke (2011) described that with appropriate support and leadership, the potential of all team members can be achieved. The Ministry of Health Malaysia also gives importance to leadership as they believe more leaders are needed in health care to set the right path towards quality services as explained by Ismail (2008). Poor teamwork is encountered in clinical setting but with active partaking of staffs in the interventions, it could be decreased significantly. Kalisch and Lee (2010) have identified that poor teamwork in the clinical setting is one of the challenges faced by the health care sector. They also further states that teamwork is imperative in providing safe care for the patients.
For this reason, this document does not contain recipes, but rather tools to allow each individual, team and organisation to take the journey improve in the areas that are important to them. By the end of reading this document, you will have identified unique needs to work on, and designed unique action plans – just as when you are working with patients and clients you will assess their unique needs and deliver unique treatment plans. Why is person centred practice important? It makes sense that… …when you get to know the patient or client well, you can provide care more specific to their needs and therefore better care. …by promoting and facilitating greater patient and client responsibility, patients and clients are more likely to engage in treatment decisions, feel supported to make behavioural changes
As Phlebotomists, we are essential for obtaining the proper patient samples. It is important for the phlebotomist and patient alike, to maintain a controlled, safe, and accurate collection of these specimens for not only the patient being cared for (internal stakeholder), but for the external stakeholders setting our general guidelines for care. Seeing as no one enjoys having their blood drawn, it’s up to us to explain the procedure to our patients, and attempt to make them as comfortable as possible. Maintaining cleanliness and safety throughout the process is highly important, as is using the proper collection tubes in proper order, and timing our draws to expedite these samples to the laboratory. We’ll have constant contact throughout the day with our fellow staff, nurses, doctors, and lab technicians.
Today we will discuss the different effective communication skills when it comes to a healthcare environment. Which involves how does effective communication incorporate the basic elements of communication? How do the basic elements of effective communication differ from the basic rules of health care communication? How might a provider encourage a reluctant consumer to communicate candidly? How might cultural differences influence communication?
Patients should not have to wait 4 to 5 hours to receive treatment, see a doctor or have any test performed on them, unless there is an extremely valid issue. It shows a lack of courtesy, disorganization and insensitivity to the patient’s need and care. This institution is continuously striving to achieve better results with patient wait times by implementing various methods that can improve the overall quality of care delivered to patients and improving patient satisfaction. Three methods for integrating quality improvement strategies into performance measurements are patient stimulated quality, data driven and process oriented. Patients should always be the focus of an organization’s quality improvement strategy.
The principle Primum Non Nocere teaches the use of the least invasive methods necessary to allow the body to heal itself. A detailed look into a patient’s history and habits can help identify what level of intervention is required based on how severe their symptoms are. Another distinguishing factor of naturopathy from conventional medicine is the principle Tolle Totem. In order to find out the underlying cause of what might be making a patient sick enough time needs to be spent asking the right questions and investigating deeper than their symptoms. Good health is more
Now that there is sufficient data to convince most people (including Congress and major purchasers of health benefits) that there is a quality problem in the US health care system, it will be hard to resist the widespread urge to use that same information to reform an obviously imperfect payment system. Used effectively, pay-for-performance could remove some of the well-known distortions that are generated by the underlying structure of current payment systems and help refocus delivery on critical aspects of population health. If it is to succeed in promoting patient health and value for the health care dollar, pay-for-performance will require careful design and effective safeguards against potential unintended consequences including those associated with patient selection incentives (and the associated fairness concerns) and “teaching to the test” to ensure that these positive objectives are not achieved at too great a cost (Rosenthal,
