Explain how using the computerized management system could increase quality of care. • Computerized management system could increase quality of care in several ways. • Computerized Physician Order Entry or CPOE. Requires doctors to enter orders from any computer in the hospital or doctors office. • By increasing legibility and decreasing misread orders could increase quality of care and patient safety.
1. COMPUTERIZED PHYSICIAN ORDER ENTRY DERRICA WRIGHT HCIS/255C Computerized physician order entry is a process of electronic entry of medical practitioner instructions for the treatment of patients (particularly hospitalized patients) under his or her care. These orders are communicated over a computer network to the medical staff or to the department’s pharmacy, laboratory, or radiology responsible for fulfilling the order. CPOE decreases delay in order completion, reduces errors related to handwriting or transcription, allows order entry at the point of care or off-site, provides error-checking for duplicate or incorrect doses or tests, and simplifies inventory and posting of charges. CPOE is a form of patient management software.
Dashboard Analysis and Nursing Plan Linda Ndofor Walden University NURS 4005 Section 04, Topics in Clinical Nursing June, 21st, 2015 Dashboard Analysis and Nursing Plan Overview The most successful healthcare organizations are those that utilize information obtained from care providers and patients to develop solid structures to facilitate service delivery. Dashboard analysis makes it easier for administrators to make decisions based on facts rather than on assumptions. Dashboard analysis provides a base on which to look at various performance indicators in an organization to make long-term decisions (Clay, 2008). Dashboard analysis is crucial in healthcare settings since it helps to determine the areas that need improvement.
The transition process from paper charts to an electronic medical record system includes the strategic variables of physicians’ personal attributes, workflow, and process (Meinert and Peterson, 2009). Therefore, Electronic Medical Records (EMR) is new changes in this era which has implement new environment to medical records. Electronic medical record (EMR) basically to describe computer-based patient medical records which involve all the records and documents related to the patients such as patients registration, laboratory results and clinical correspondences. According to Al-Nassar, Abdullah, and Osman (2011), state that Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is the electronic middleman which allows users to access and retrieve patients’ data, to review patients’ medical history, and to facilitate the activation between patients and medical users. Thus, there are many aspects that includes in EMR such as EMR implementation, benefits of EMR, challenges of EMR, ways to overcome the problem, information system use in EMR, and future of
The use of standardized terminologies allows for consistency across the continuum of care in terms of identifying and applying nursing diagnoses, interventions, and clinical outcomes. The terminologies are utilized within the electronic medical records, allowing for medical facilities to trend patient outcomes based on the use evidence-based practice nursing interventions (NANDA International, 2014). Care plans developed and implemented using the standardized terminologies are based on evidence-based practice and individualized based on patient needs. Standardized nursing terminologies not only positively affect patient outcomes, but also have a positive effect on nursing staff and aides in maximizing the staff so that nurses are functioning to the best of their ability. NANDA-I, NIC, and NOC allows facilities to trend and analyze the requirements of nursing care based on patient acuity and location within the facility, and aides in the identification of areas in which cost reduction can occur without the safety of patients being bargained.
This gives the patient better care and it is safer and easier for information to be shared. Such as important information as blood type, medication, medical conditions and one’s medical history. An electronic medical record (EMR) can possibly save the patient time at the doctor’s office. Having these records efficiently accessible can be lifesaving in an emergency situation. Patients need to trust that all their information that is being shared between doctors and hospital is safe.
The implementation of EHRs in LTC facilities or home health can manage patients care to promote improvements in the patients outcome and possible help decrease medical cost. In this forever changing healthcare industry, which stresses continuity of care, the movement to push for EHRs in LTC facilities is necessary. Review of another study stressed that the healthcare team is vital in the implementing of EHRs. The healthcare team approach is vital to the success of the EHRs and vice versa. If done effectively, care coordination puts patients at the center of the care process, encouraging, engaging as well as responsibility.
