This allows the patient to have a more active say in their health care and the tools to help improve their own health situation. Health care providers have noticed the value of engaging patients to have more said in their health care. Health care providers have noticed that by managing health care plans will streamline services and cut cost and shortened hospital stays and show patients and their families how to provide care for themselves. By using electronic communication it allows for more interaction, between consumers, business, it allows for two way communication. This allows a new way of thinking on advertising and a new way of handling public relations.
While ERP’s are not necessarily well-designed to handle big data, it is my recommendation that both be used parallel to one another for the most benefit. By using each system to feed the other, the hospital ensures sufficient patient data is obtained without inundating the system with useless or superfluous information, such as would be the case if the two systems were to be fully integrated. For example, each time a patient is seen any resulting information would be put in to the ERP system. That data would then be transferred to whatever large data storage system the hospital uses from the ERP system. When the patient returns for future treatment, that information is again accessed in the patient history, most likely in the large data storage, and transferred to the ERP system for use and update.
AHIMA believes that hospitals and providers must improve clinical documentation in preparation for the expanded scope of clinical data beyond a single patient encounter to a comprehensive data set comprising the entire continuum of care (www.ahimafoundation.org, 2014). With the use of EHR’s in hospitals and clinics worldwide, improved clinical documentation is possible. The use of electronic health records in the private sector has been widely recognized as an efficient way to improve the provision of health care and enable health care providers to access and share
Each organization benefits from wider exposure, more referrals, and marketing that is more efficient (McCord, 1999-2012, para. 6). By partnering with a well-respected medical facility the prenatal clinic can improve their reputation, reach a larger number of consumers, and develop a successful marketing
Pay-for-Performance Tarvis T. Edwards HCS/531 November 03, 2014 Rachael Kehoe Pay-for-Performance Even though the effects of pay-for-performance will influence the future of health care in patient care, reimbursement to the healthcare providers will require close monitoring. The physician receives reimbursement for providing quality care and for making quality innovations. Pay-for-performance offers financial incentives to close the gap in healthcare the patients receive and the healthcare the patients could receive. The effect of pay-for-performance for the healthcare providers depends on his or her quality and efficiency of services he or she provides

In this paper I will discuss how the culture of a healthcare organization can improve hospital outcomes. Obama Care is a health care organization implemented through the democratic administration that helps individuals have a smoother medical experience by means of preventive care services, the Summary of Budgets Committee for nutritional benefits before and after a hospital stay, emergency room insurance acceptance with no turn away, pre existing condition and grandfathered insurance. Healthcare, 2012 show that the organizational design of Obama Care which consist of legislation to create health care, are a joint effort among the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor, and the Department of the Treasury. This healthcare organization to benefit hospital outcomes is the government’s reconstruction of the private marketplace and makes access to all for health care without penalty for pre existing conditions. In fact, you may be
Anti-trust Name Institutional Affiliation Anti-trust The role of antitrust laws in healthcare is to encourage a competitive and free marketplace. These laws are designed to safeguard the public from the hostile impacts of monopoly power. All state governments and federal governments have such law in place that reflect a public policy standard that a competitive marketplace safeguards consumers, confines private economic influence, and yields the best provision of quality goods and services at minimal costs (Cleverley, Song & Cleverley, 2011). Antitrust lawsuits are likely to occur in outright mergers in terms of Health Care Organizations (HCOs). With new mergers, HCOs tend to acquire increased
ILHIE allows healthcare providers and professionals to exchange electronic health information in a secure environment, which helps prevent duplicate tests and procedures, and ensure the accuracy of prescriptions and other medical orders. HIE allows for improved healthcare quality and outcomes, patient safety, and promotes greater
It was apparent that health care organizations would benefit from the use of this technology. This sparked a congressional concern about the transferability and portability of patient’s health coverage. This brought several issues pertaining to the transmission of health care information to light. “In order to increase the efficiency, effectiveness and cost savings through the use of electronic data interchange in the health care industry, Congress passed legislation,” (Privacy and HIPPA Information, n.d.). With this, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 was signed into law on August 21, 1996.
