As I read the “Team STEPPS makes strides for better communication”, some of the tools like; (SBARQ) is used in many organizations, especially during patient hand-offs. It provides a systematic way to convey patient information, which is essential during high-stress situations. In a stress situation, taking responsibility to prevent human errors. As ANA code of
Quantitative research has improved the overall delivery of health services, helped healthcare managers improve their facilities, and helped healthcare professionals learned more about diseases and other health-related issues. For example, quantitative research studies are needed in epidemiological investigations, in which Nursing participates, but can still explore much more, both in the diversity of epidemiology projects, allowing the identification of the most vulnerable groups of the population, risk factors (Nery, 2017). In this case, Quantitative research is used to collect different data to get the results of the epidemiological investigations
2.3 Professional Context: It is important for me to do more skillful and be competent in my quality of care rendered to my patient. Professional must ensure that my record is accurate and accessible, reliable since it serves as useful information for quality of care rendered. 2.4 Current Research on Quality control in Nursing Jack Needleman and Susan Hassmilter (2009) stated that, hospital need to integrate their work to improve quality and patient-centeredness and to increase the efficiency of care delivery. Nurses and other front line staff must play key roles. To benefit from the insight and input of these staff members, hospital will need to value their potential contributing shifting their vision of nursing from being a cost center to being critical service line.
Clinical decision support system (CDSS)is a system that assist in compiling patient -specific information with a list of possible prognosis, treatments, drug interactions , as well as reminders for the patient’s care all while giving the clinicians a database to input new information in knowledge-base for the specific patient. CDS has a number of important benefits such as Increased quality of care and enhanced health outcomes, Avoidance of errors and adverse events, Improved efficiency, cost-benefit, and provider and patient satisfaction. The summary for first study antibiotic resistance is now a major issue confronting healthcare providers and their patients because if we do not use antibiotics carefully, they will lose their efficacy.
Considering the high cost of medical errors in terms of human lives and loss of trust in health care systems, patient safety has become a major area for improvement in health care organizations to mitigate or reduce the incidence of preventable medical errors . The purpose of this study is to assess the current organizational safety culture in NCCCR and HH as perceived by employees, and to assess the impact of the organizational culture on medication error reporting.
or newly suggested or defined Experience Management KPIs to provide a view of the micro as well as macro level customer experience – both at an individual as well as an aggregate level. For example, aggregate views like patient history, patient journey, etc. could be created to give a holistic view. Analytics models can then help not only understand and suggest where changes need to be made to improve patient experience but they can also predict KPIs like Bed Utilization in coming weeks, months as well as to improve business efficiency by means of optimization of assets and resources. Cloud based Big Data Analytics Patient Experience Management platform can help Providers better understand the actual patient experience, the key driving factors for enriching the same and enable custom offerings and campaigns to the target patient groups for optimal reach and response with the overall aim to enhance the patient experience and satisfaction, at a fraction of a cost of in house
Organizations must analyze internal and external patient information to more accurately measure risk and outcomes. At the same time, many clients are working to increase data transparency to produce new insight knowledge. Praveen Kumar et al , in their work proposed that Hadoop is based on Map Reduction is a powerful tool manages the huge amount of data. With this echo system can use fault tolerant techniques.
1. HEALTHCARE INFORMATICS Healthcare informatics in nursing improves decision making, it helps in detecting changes in patient’s condition which could be for the nurse to call rapid response team or to intervene through modified early warning system (MEWS) which assigns numerical value to the vital signs reading and calculates a score that indicates the severity of the sickness and tendency of escalating to critical condition. Nurse is able to locate essential equipment such as IV pumps, infusion pumps, EKG machines, portable computers with the click of a button when wireless technology and radio frequency identification (RFID) thereby improving patient care at the nursing level. The nurse could equally use RFID technology to track surgical
MRI facility plays a major role in influencing patient satisfaction. In this service their high number, diverse mix of patients, procedure-related discomforts and phobias and examination types ranging from routine imaging to emergency cases poses unique challenges. Patient satisfaction[PS] is an expression of the gap between expected and perceived attributes of service. It is an important and commonly used indicator for measuring the quality in health care. Patient satisfaction is an attitude. Though it does not ensure that the patient will remain loyal to the doctor or the hospital, it is still a strong motivating factor. Patient satisfaction is only an indirect or a proxy indicator of the quality of hospital performance.[4
Nowadays, healthcare industry widely applies health information technologies (IT) in clinical care to cut back method inefficiencies, control growth of costs and improve the quality of care (1). Therefore, different computerized systems, softwares, and websites are designed for clinical decision-making aids, production of new knowledge, enhancing public health information, and raising the standard of health care. Although, health IT can promote the capability of diagnosis, treatments and have other potential benefits, additionally increases the healthcare complexity (2).
Together, the two systems were devised to establish a means to extend intensivist expertise to a greater number of ICU patients and potentially maximize both effectiveness and efficiency of critical care treatment. The eICU program comprises of a suite of information technology tools that monitor and support the remote team and the on-site team. The core information system collects data from various sources and reorganizes it to optimize data presentation and facilitate physician work flow.
With increasing the acceptance of using e-prescribing in health care , evaluating and understanding the types of e-prescribing errors can help to identify the prober ways to prevent future e-prescription errors from reaching patients. It is also important to use health information technology to improve safety, such as use of technology to identify and monitor patient safety events, risks and hazards ;and to intervene before actual harm occurs
The clinical decision support system have several functions: to provide drug information, cross-reference patient 's allergies to medications, and ensures you verify current medications to prevent future drug interactions. With the continuous growth of medical expertise, these functions deliver a safer and a much higher quality of care. As more clinical decision support systems are used, the patient will receive the best
Goals/Objectives EHR has many goals that healthcare providers in hospitals try and accomplish. These achievements are the enhanced usability of the tools, improved evaluation and the mechanism of the tools, and to provide developmental education to the healthcare staff. Through these achievements, goals, and objectives, the toolkit will provide an easy yet efficient for the user to support their care with the EHR system, evaluate the workflow conditions as health care providers use the EHR method, provide easy access to the EHR system by performing good practices to teach healthcare professionals to use it, and the ability to identify medical errors of work flaws in the information technology systems as the extensive use could provide better
The requirement for excellent skills of communication in healthcare is paramount in delivering optimal care and in facilitating health promotion. Good communication ultimately leads to increased patient satisfaction and is one of the key elements in providing patient centred care. Conversely, it is inevitable that patients will become distressed with health conditions when skills of communication are mediocre (Reynolds, 2004). Furthermore it must be recognised that effective communication extends beyond client and clinician and also includes carers of elderly patients whom may be involved in joint decision making. Hence the importance of the integration of the carer into the multi-disciplinary team.
