It evaluates both clinical services and systematic structures through which services are delivered. It controls cost of health care by having balance of personnel to provide effective and efficient care. Despite this, large number of people can still not afford minimal health care in U.S…. Nursing education research focus on more efficient educational processes, how to identify ways to incorporate technology in order to enhance learning, effective approach to promote lifelong learning. More research is needed in the assessment of the teaching-learning process and outcomes at every level of nursing
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets security standards for safeguarding important patient health information that is being stored and maintained in analog and digital forms. As new technologies continue to facilitate the healthcare industry’s transition to paperless processes, health care providers, insurance companies, and other institutions are also growing increasingly dependent on electronic information systems to manage their HIPAA compliance programs. As a result, the safety and security of sensitive health data has become a major concern across the board. Security Risks and Challenges Today, health care professionals are using technology extensively in almost every aspect of the practice.
At the time when this story happened, the healthcare system and the educational system was not well-rounded compared with those of today. We cannot blame on the physicians in the story, they could do better without the many limitations at that time. With the development of science and technology, the world is always changing with fast speed. We cannot predict what the pharmacy world would like after we graduation, so I believe in order to build a good shape as an excellent pharmacist, we should not only grasp knowledge we learn from daily course, but also catch up with the newest information and research in
During the implementing phase also known as care coordination, the case manager secures, organizes, and modifies the health and human services and resources that are essential to meeting the patient’s interest and needs. The following-up phase is focused on evaluating the success of the case management plan and the effect on the patients’ health condition and outcomes. Depending on the client’s health condition the transitioning phase is focused on moving the patient across the health and human services continuum. During this phase the case manager makes sure the patient and the patient’s support system is ready to be discharged to go home or to be transferred to another healthcare facility. There is another part of the transitioning phase which is communicating post transition.
The facilities enforcing protocols and policies to secure that employees are meeting government regulations. Doctors, nursing staff and support staff I must use their best ethical and moral judge in most case to ensure patients are being retreated. Thus, sometimes causing conflict with health care administration because health care workers sometimes unknowingly break policies or protocol by putting patients first. As well as hospitals and clinics have so many departments that there can be conflict of interest with patient care that can cause inconsistency with patient care (Santilli, J. el al., 2015, Para
Introduction The most complex and dynamic organizations to control and to manage are the healthcare organizations. The nature and the structure of the healthcare organizations necessitate the managers to provide both the leadership controls and the management of powers to all the stakeholders in the field (Kelly 2011). Indeed, the constraints and the scope of the roles and tasks carried out to provide efficient services to the general public are so diverse that a single staff can’t operate on their own without the help of the other individuals. For proper functionality of the organizations in the health sector, coordination and the management of powers is crucial as it ensures the objectives of the firm are achieved.
Introduction Recently, there is an inevitable care of patients that seems to involve many different individuals, all needing to share patient information and discuss their management. As a consequence there is increasing trend in, using information and communication technologies to support health services. However, there is a significant investment in information technologies, communication systems receive much less attention and the clinical adoption of even simpler services like voice-mail or electronic mail is still not commonplace in many health services. There remain enormous gaps in our broad understanding of the role of communication services in health care delivery. Laboratory medicine is perhaps even more poorly studied than many other areas, such as the interface between primary care and hospital services.
In-house vs. Outsourced Medical Billing Services A never-ending challenge for a physician is to decide whether to outsource the medical billing services to a third-party or to keep the medical billing process in-house that winds up heavily on a healthcare provider. This explicitly differs from practice to practice and is based on several factors: • Duration of the business • Size of clinical staff • Financial health of a healthcare organization Medical Billing often referred as Revenue Cycle Management (RCM), includes the most complex and crucial components of a healthcare business. The advents of latest inventions in technology, increasing government regulations, and uncollectible accounts have ignited a new trend leading to an increased
Background The ability to recognize, understand and treat symptoms related to illnesses, along with crafting the right questions in order to promote optimal care is considered a fine art in the field of healthcare. However, sensitive and time-critical conditions can pose questions that could challenge the status quo in relation to healthcare policy and decision making. Challenging circumstances often call for drastic measures that make difficult to decide right vs wrong. An ethical dilemma defines this decision-making process.
Today in this moment, we have more scientific knowledge and are more technologically advanced than ever in human history. Yet we still suffer from a health crisis. Many experts understand the importance of having a biopsychosocial approach to health care, meaning we need to take into consideration the biological, psychological, sociological and ecological issues for a real understanding of health. Nevertheless, because of systemic economic pressures we have a global health crisis that we simply cannot afford to ignore. In my research I explore systems theory in an effort to understand the root causes of this crisis, I also explore some possible practical solutions to this complicated and ever evolving issue.
("CMS.gov," “n.d”.) Furthermore, a lot of incentives for doctors seem to create conflicts of interest, which brings up the question of a doctors ' loyalty to his or her patient. In modern time doctor ethics acted in the interest of the patients and not of the doctors own financial interest. Health care professionals are supposed to place the interests of their patients first.
“What actions will you take to evolve the sectors of technology and science once you graduate?” Improvement in the subject of technology and science has advanced the lives of people than ever before. The area of technology and science positively affects people’s way of living on one hand and it negatively affects people’s health on the other hand. Per the CDC Health Disparities & Inequalities Report – United States, 2013, Vol.62, Supplement No. 3, pages 1-187, published in Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) Supplement on November 22, 2013: • Non- Asian racial/ ethnic minorities continue to experience higher rates of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) diagnoses than whites.
America is a land of immigration (legal and illegal). Legal immigrants undergo a compulsory medical screening before entering the country, but illegal immigrants are not. Therefore, they may enter in the country with infectious or chronic diseases. Because they are illegal immigrants, they do not benefit to medical treatment like U.S. citizens or legal immigrants (Angel and Angel, 2006). Linguistic and Cultural Barriers Immigrants both legal and illegal face very often language linguistic and cultural barriers.
Social Justice Applied to Healthcare Social justice, the fair distribution of resources amongst the population, strives towards bringing equality to all, in this case, in the form of healthcare. The reasoning behind healthcare reform stems from distributive justice, which attempts to correct the disparity between readily accessible healthcare for the insured and the unavailability under and uninsured (Lachman, 2012, p. 249). The passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, opened up access to basic healthcare for a wider range of the population, many who had no healthcare access previously (Kelly, 2014, p. 1). With the wide distribution of healthcare access brings the duty of responsibility. This paper will explore and present the rationale
I think having proper documentations will inform employers more about the immigrant nurses. Immigrant nurses should be up to date on their immunizations and how to follow the US's laws and regulations. Where they come from will help employers do some research on how much the nurses know and the differences between their country's laws and regulations. I do think it is a tad bit disappointing that there is currently a shortage on nurses but I am not worried.
