Clinical Decision Support System Impacts on Healthcare Systems Businesses Healthcare Informatics TaeHyuk Hur Clinical Decision Support System Impacts on Healthcare System TaeHyuk Hur Introduction The Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) is used by health professionals to help and improve the process of enhancing health care decisions to improve the quality of patient care. Under the approval of American Recovery and Reinvestment, there are many healthcare technologies are being into use such as Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE). CDSS is often integrated into EHR systems to manage clinical data and assist with clinical decision making with pertinent clinical knowledge and information
How likely is the innovation more compatible with the way work is perceived by the healthcare workers (or job perception of healthcare workers)? 25. How likely will more healthcare workers expect the patients to be satisfied with the innovation? 26. How likely are there more expectations from healthcare workers that the innovation will produce the expected results?
Affordable Care Act The goal of the Affordable Care Act was to provide health care for all U.S. citizens. The idea was to increase access to health care and improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery. However, there are a lot of questions of whether or not the decision to pass this act, or even the ideals it included were ethical. Jürgen Unützer and Wayne Katon at the University of Washington developed a model known as the “Collaborative Care Model”. This model showed many of the flaws of the ACA.
Rich households have good health outcomes because they can afford insurance and expensive medical procedures like surgeries. However, the poor households have insufficient health outcomes because they cannot afford life-saving medication and health services (Paradies et al. 373). Healthcare inequality is an injustice because it prevents all individuals from accessing high-quality healthcare that they can afford. As a result, a significant proportion of the society, who comprise the minority groups and the low-income households, suffer from the inadequate access to the important health care services like vaccinations, surgeries, and terminal care (Schroeder).
Healthcare administrators can encourage these contributions by exercising organizational transparency, and promoting employee feedback. The Healthcare Environment Whirlwind In Peter Segall’s HealthcareSource blog post, the writer pens his thoughts on management strategies in contemporary medical settings.  He reports that the field evolves continuously as researchers find new and better methods to heal patients. Abdulaziz Al-Sawai’s
Cultural Competency means you are "pro-active in promoting cultural diversity and Seek opportunities to improve cultural relationships" (Cultural Competency by Brannon). Cultural competency in the health care sector is vital to giving accurate health care given the vast array of races, cultures and ethnicities we live among. If a healthcare practitioner were culturally inept, they are unable, unwilling or lack the skills to become competent in understanding and embracing cultural differences. As it pertains to healthcare, we can't apply treatment and diagnostics with a broad brush. We have to be able to take deeper look at everyone's culture, background and understand lineage and inherited characteristics.
Furthermore, the amplified rivalry for the acquisition of general practitioners and patients will result into enhanced volume of patients which may affect the quality of the care. From the perspective of the consumers, an increase in medical arms race will result in higher costs and could subsequently result into under-utilization of the services if not fully reimbursed by the insurance
The Columbian Exchange is a mark in history that has lead to pivotal outcomes that has affected the world today as well as the past. The Exchange between the old and new world has brought advances to today’s world due to sacrifices and interactions between two distinctly different populations. Both worlds introduced one another to new diseases, and resources that overall lead to advancements in research and new resources of survival to help sustain populations in both worlds, which have carried over into present day and has allowed for the development of the human population. Sustainable populations allowed individuals to no longer concentrate solely on survival rather have time to research and expand knowledge about health practices and give attention to preventing deadly epidemics. Although the interaction of disease did give rise to deadly epidemics in the new world the advancements made in medicine changed how disease and illness were treated and further allowed a change in perspective about health and survival.
The lack of financial resources can be a big problem to access to health care. The lack of available finance is a barrier to health care for many Americans but access to health care is reduced most among minority populations. The irregular source of care is another reason why access to health is a disparity. Compared to white individuals ethnic or racial minorities are less likely to be able to visit the same doctor on a regular basis and tend to rely more on clinics and emergency rooms (News Medical Life Sciences). 5.
There are three major public health concerns that distinguish this population from the normative population, this population has greater social economic problems, health problem, and higher mortality rate in society. Let start examining this population health issues. One of the health issues this population experience is cognitive Impairment, due to unattended dementia, depression, or uncontrollable substance usage, these factors decrease elderly homeless cognitive abilities. This will prevent them from seeking assistance and making the right decision that will benefit them. They also suffer from other chronic illnesses that worsen or advance quickly due to lack of health assistance.
African Americans and other minorities are more likely to die in the hospital from illnesses than whites. Some factors that may contribute to the lack of care for minorities are cultural and religious beliefs, geographic locations, and preferences for treatment (Johnson 2003). Although, these may be factors that contribute to the reason it is not exact. Access to care and research for minorities who suffer from advanced illnesses, palliative care, is limited; the availability of high quality care is not equivalent to those of non-minority races.
The diversity in the United States continues to grow, increasing the demand of creating more cultural competent programs. Health outcomes are addressed by race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. In research. race and ethnicity are potential predictors for a particular outcome. There is need for more research studies in order to provide an understanding of the different needs among ethnic minority groups.
The SARS led to the loss of lives, business bankruptcy and affected the tourism industry, this all led to a negative impact on the economy of the country. The health systems should use the three reports, Naylor, Kirby and Walker to renew the systems by increasing the resources, improving the systems and inter-agency cooperation. These would help by allowing for a better plan and preparing for future disasters. Political parties should come together with a common objective of having a plan for infectious disease protection, there should be a political motive to implement the plan and the need for the political parties to review and maintain the plan to ensure protection of the entire community. There is a need to increase the number of medical practitioners, and should be trained to deal with these types of incident should they happen in the future.
Share an example of a situation in which a patient-centered environment was created by acknowledgment and consideration of a patient’s cultural diversity. Cultural competence has become a significant component, to providing quality and patient-centered care during the recent times. Consequently, in the clinical setting, is crucial to consider, the patient 's cultural context as this can critically impact health care outcomes and prevent further health complications (Bruttaro, Trybulski, Polgar-Bailey, & Sandberg-Cook, 2017). Through the years, and as a result of the increasing influx of immigrants from Latin and Sur America within our community, our health organization has seen a higher demand to serve the health care needs of this vulnerable
Health disparities have been an issue all over the world. In the United States, individual and community activism have been seen in an attempt to address the health inequalities of the underrepresented groups tracing back to 1781 (Mitchell, 2015). With the passing of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the hope for social equality and justice through insurance for all remains complex. The legislation will certainly provide better health outcomes, but health advocacy remains an important aspect in changing the landscape of our health system. A study indicated that the overall rate of insurance coverage increased and a decreased in “coverage disparities related to race and ethnicity” was noted a few years after the ACA was passed (Buchmueller,
