The Cerner program I use at the hospital gives me quicker access to patient information, improves efficiency, and reduces the potential for drug errors. I am able to document and share with patients and staff data such as lab results in real time. The Medication Administration Record helps me record and dispense medication in a correct and timely manner. The MAR also helps me provide patient education using references that are specific to that medication. I am able to access the information as I am talking with patients and provide copies of that information to patients for future use.
What are the reasons for establishing a personal health record? Personal Health Records (PHR) are distinct electronic applications where the patient can enter their health information, record test results and see their medication history, etc. This is done in a secure confidential online environment. As a connected part of the medical home, (see definition) the PHR becomes a tool that the provider can utilize to help assess and manage their patients’ healthcare needs. The Medical home The medical home is best described as a model or philosophy of primary care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, accessible, and focused on quality and safety.
Abstract Telehealth refers to health care interactions that leverage telecommunication devices to provide medical care outside the traditional face-to-face, in-person medical encounter. Technology advances and research have expanded use of telehealth in health care delivery. Physical medicine and rehabilitation providers may use telehealth to deliver care to populations with neurologic and musculoskeletal conditions, commonly treated in both acute care and outpatient settings. Patients with impaired mobility and those living in locations with reduced access to care may particularly benefit. Video-teleconferencing has been shown to be effective for management of burn patients during acute rehabilitation, including reduced health care use expenses and less disruptions
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
Also, it is anticipated that the synergistic integration and active involvement of these providers in the care of patients and families, may improve healthcare outcomes and resource allocation overall. Specifically, this research will contribute to the health system
One of the many new gadgets that allow patients to visit their doctors in a faster way are virtual doctor visits. Not only are the disabled capable to access their medical issues and can find a way to solve them, doctors can also have a way to diagnose better, for they do not have to stress over the problems they face in appointments where they interact physically. Additionally, patients can be sure that they receive their medicine and antibiotics by remote patient monitoring, which allows the diseased to be identified whenever his or her blood level, blood sugar, blood pressure, heart rate, and weight, are too high or low, permitting them to receive the correct treatment and tips about their conditions. In addition, doctors may even function with robotic surgeons, in which they don’t have to be present in an operation room, meaning patients can have the surgery in any hospital that they wish. In other cases, the doctor stays in the room, but the robotic device provides a faster procedure, which can result in less scarring and a faster recovery time.
BHP provides an opportunity for students of different professions to come together and come to understand each profession’s role and value within the health system. This knowledge and understanding of the different professions will ultimately improve collaborative practice. In addition I must also be knowledgeable of my limitations in my profession and of the skills that other professions have, and refer accordingly. For example if I observe a patient experiencing difficulty swallowing I know, from the understanding of speech therapy I gain in BHP, I can refer the patient to a speech therapist. (Silber, 2005: 61-63 & Olckers, Gibbs, & Duncan, 2007:
Rehabilitation involves the successful and productive interactions of several clinicians. Rehabilitation is a philosophy of practice and an attuned toward caring for people with disabilities and chronic health problems( Larsen,2011). The National Cancer Institutue, 2013 (as cited in Michelle, Terrie, James, Karion, Susan,Barbara, 2014) states, there is no one universal definition of rehabilitation, but the goal of rehabilitation is to restore mental and/or physical abilities lost to disease, to function in a normal or near-normal way (pg.6). Rehabilitation can occur in several settings ranging from acute, subacute, or long term care. The role of the clinicians participating in the care of the client is slightly different depending on the
Patient education Today's patients are more educated, computer savvy, and much richer. It is essential to clear all their rightly or wrongly earned doubts with much patience and compassion. Patients have willingness to explain things as the most important criterion in selecting a physician. Many factors used in the study were reasonable fees, telephone access, friendly office, convenient appointments, and convenient location; the willingness to explain .. Feedback The feedback given by the patient helps to improve the overall work of the physician, place, and also the system.
My experiences and strong loving family have instilled these qualities in me. I am looking forward to an Internal Medicine residency program that will expose me to the highest standards of clinical experience and provide me with the expertise needed in Internal Medicine. It would be a great learning experience if I get exposed to colleagues and patients from different social, economic and cultural backgrounds. Such an environment can help in the exchange of knowledge and ideas. I am seeking this program because it can fulfil my above mentioned academic interests in a friendly atmosphere.
Activities Activities will be designed to improve knowledge, competence, performance, and, ultimately, patient outcomes with innovative and effective learning formats that may include live activities such as regularly scheduled series, courses, conferences, and research symposia; and performance improvement curriculum. We encourage innovative use of new technologies and approaches. The medical education program seeks to provide continuing medical education activities free of commercial bias and with transparent disclosure of any potential conflicts of interest. Desired Results We expect our educational activities and CME learners to improve the care delivered by HPMG clinicians in the following ways: 1) develop skilled physician educators and leaders with implementation of meaningful and sustainable practice change, where appropriate; 2) Improve process of care by increasing medical knowledge and competence in ability to apply knowledge, skills and judgment; 3) practice effective and compassionate physician-patient communication; and 4) optimize health outcomes and increase consistency of care delivery across
Hello, Lori You made a great point with telehealth and telecare. Sanders et al. (2012) identified telehealth and telecare interventions for improving quality and cost-effectiveness of care for people with long term complex health and social care needs. Patients who use this innovative change in care delivery have an increase in autonomy. There is the convenience as you emphasized due to decrease in unnecessary travel.
Such include, the health care system, self management support, decision support, delivery system design, clinical information system and community resources and policies. All these components are put together to support and create more effective health care delivery systems. The CCM has helped tremendously in safe management support for diabetes. It is found that diabetes self- management education has generally improved psychosocial and clinical outcomes in patients with diabetes. It is also noted that facilitators, such as certified diabetes educators or nurses provide instructions on various topics such as medication compliance, goal setting, foot care and interpretation of laboratory results (CDC, 2013).
