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
There is always changes in medical field, and as a medical assistant it is our job to learn new things relating to medicines and how the office runs. Electronic submission is also one thing that we should be aware of and know how the regulation works. It has more advantages than disadvantages for the providers.
So knowledge of medical terminology is a must. It is used to lessen confusion and support data. Terminology in ICD-10-PCS might be different than what a coder is used to. So it is best to know which term is the best to use, and to know what it is exactly that you are coding. As long as you have a healthy knowledge
Vulnerable consumers — whether patients in need or time-strapped clinicians — are more likely to be misled. There is also a need, therefore, for a more nuanced understanding of the interaction between marketing practices and preexisting human vulnerabilities to this mismarketing. Ethical Question Should companies market a medication for the treatment of a disorder when the medication has not received formal approval from the relevant national regulatory body?

The information must be current and it must be accurate. There can be no errors on your part. Errors or mistakes can lead to wrong diagnosis and wrong treatment that could cost valuable time and money. It could even cost a patient their life.
Failing in service-user safety can sometimes be attributed to communication failure, however communication is one of the most important tools in preventing such failures. The ability to communicate effectively as a team stems from understanding the various professions in the team (Gluyas & Morrison, 2013). Understanding the various roles allows for an insight into how the healthcare system links together and the part each roles plays in provision of care. Additionally it aides in building trust and respect amongst team members (Gluyas & Morrison, 2013). This in turn can be linked to improved service-user safety, because it allows for role relation and see their part in the service-user care pathway.
Most of the diseases can be prevented if there was an early screening that was established. One of the best ways to deter any disease is by screening. As a result, screening is an important component of clinical preventive services because it is a valuable tool for healthcare professionals to identify anyone who is at risk to develop chronic disease before the condition becomes both deadly and costly. To alter any disease from its progression, a method of prevention to be established which can be done by a creating a screen methodology. Creating a Health Screening Initiative in today health is an important issue to prevent disease apparition.
However, with proper planning and in some cases, good policy and procedure the desired state is achievable. Utilizing the CLD diagram can be valuable in producing potential resolutions for the business sector issue. Specifically, the diagram will generate multiple scenarios without liability to leadership allowing them to consider implementing a resolution. The CLD in Diagram 2 represents the desired state of the healthcare industry through a balancing feedback loop that highlights the stable system which continuously attempts to close the gap between the current and desired
errors can also occur as a result of poor oral or written communications. The informed consent process should be used as a patient safety tool, and the patient should be warned about material and foreseeable serious side effects and be told what signs and symptoms should be immediately. . Faculty systems must be redesigned, and seamless, computerized integrated medication delivery must be instituted by health care professionals adequately trained to use such technological advances. Handwritten prescriptions should be replaced by computerized physician order entry, a very effective technique for reducing prescribing/ordering errors, and an effective change would involve writing all drug orders in plain English, rather than continuing to use the elitists' arcane Latin words and shorthand abbreviations that are subject
This is necessary to identify the long-term lasting effects of medicine. Similarly, specialty court recidivism research needs to do the same. This prompted the authors to measure specialty court’s influence on clients who did not complete the program. This data is and should be required to determine specialty court’s efficacy. This approach to measure unsuccessful clients is essential and should not be discarded.
