In the United States alone, over two million people suffer from burns, and approximately seven million suffer from chronic wounds caused by diabetes, pressure, venous diseases, and arterial diseases (Branski, 2007). There are many complications that coincide with the wound healing process. This leads to increased rates of hospitalization, increased cost of healthcare, and decreased quality of life (Cutroneo, 2008). There are many treatments out there to heal wounds effectively or to deal with non-healing wounds. One way to improve outcomes, is by using gene therapy.
Evidence based practice (EBP) is the incorporation of clinical expertise, patient values furthermore adding the greatest research evidence towards the decision-making method for the outstanding care of the patient. Traditionally, the patient care was made by the skills and beliefs of those involved in delivering treatment, now it has made a shift from traditional ways to EBP. On a daily basis the healthcare professionals seek answers to numerous clinical questions, an evidence-based approach helps them to access the best evidence to answer these questions and translate that into a clinical practice to improve patient care and
Medical staff should have good knowledge about advanced life support before undergoing advanced drug administration, rapid sequence intubation and cardiac resuscitation. It is very important that every medical personnel [Doctor, Anesthesia, paramedics and Nurses] who are prone to emergency should have stand by everywhere and time to save life, and improve the quality of cardiac resuscitation. At least the Doctors, anesthesia, Paramedics and Nurses staff must be predetermined about the need of resuscitation, by considering risk factors like hypoxia, hypothermia, hypoglycemia, acidosis and traumas. Because frequently facing life threatening situations [Boonmak P, Boonmak S,2004]
SWOT Analysis The SWOT Analysis of Diabetes Health Initiative provided data on the functionality of the program. This information encompasses all the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to the success and maintenance of the Diabetes Health Initiative. The team of people who work with the Diabetes Health Initiative provide a health care delivery system that utilize research data to monitor diabetic treatment in real time and give feedback based on the patient age, weight, and gender. The system would also keep track of patients’ durability with keeping within the health initiative program and alert medical personnel of the increase of risk to diabetic complications. With the use of media to advertise the free screening for diabetes
Since then, guidelines had been developed and implemented widely in healthcare service as it had been proven to be an effective method in achieving safe and high quality care. Guidelines are now been developed by international and in national levels by government bodies and expert clinicians and this guidelines is applicable for various clinical setting. On top of this global approach, healthcare providers are now developing guidelines as well as adapting present top level guidelines for their own clinical settings. Guideline had been written to assist healthcare providers in making effective and efficient clinical decision making leading to better clinical outcomes. Usually guidelines are developed based consensus among experts, however, there is a limitation to this as it can lead to a defective conclusions (Newhouse,
Within the existing quality systems, AZ-AHRA have organized the involvement of patients or their representatives in quality committees, in discussing patient surveys and developing guidelines when their patients receive service in hospital. The organized medical staff in AZ-ZAHRA hospital has a critical role in the process of providing oversight of safe high-quality care. A strong focus on patient safety is at the center of the AZZHARA standards. More than half of all standards are directly related to safety, addressing issues such as medication use, infection control, surgery and anesthesia, transfusions, restraint and seclusion, staffing and staff competence, fire safety, medical equipment, emergency management, and security. Moreover, there are standards related to responding to and preventing adverse events, analyzing and redesigning vulnerable patient systems to prevent accidental harm, and informing patients about the outcomes of their care (good or bad).

The Impact of Informatics on Healthcare Technology has impacted health care in ways that will allow the practicing professional to deliver the best care that is relevant to patients today. As new technology continues to emerge, and as healthcare professionals (HCP) continue to utilize the current research available, it will become safer to manage and apply advanced health care for patients today that was not available previously. Also, centralizing patient data will allow the (HCP) to see an extensive view of the patient profile that will help to deliver quality, safe and cost-effective care. Technology has an impact on the safe delivery of care. Safety has always been in the forefront in managing patient care, especially when administering
