And they added that “The implication is that design, training, and informational sessions must focus on ensuring that health IT is (or, at least, is perceived to be) capable of improving important outcomes and is not difficult to use”. Van der Zande et al. (2013) said in his research that the majority of experts have noted that the leading reasons to reject or accept technology are the relative advantages that offer to users, paralleled to methods they are replacing. And these advantages are summarized as time advantage, financial advantage and clinical advantage. And the authors added in the same research that in term of time the benefits cover smaller administration or treatment time and transmitting responsibilities to non-dentists, financially they are based on the costs of buying,
Patient education, tele-medicine, expanding urgent care and primary care hours, urgent care departments, and co-pays in combination could help curb the number of non-emergent visits. Overuse of the emergency department causes overcrowding, ambulance diversion, long waiting times, frustrated staff, and cost inflation. These impacts are caused by inconvenient urgent care clinic and primary care office hours, quick results, emergency department referrals from urgent care clinics and primary care providers, EMTALA, and finally lack of co-pay. If the number of emergency department visits are decreased, staff can focus on caring for those who have life threatening conditions, and could result in cost savings for the entire healthcare
2.4 evaluate the cultural and social impacts on and attitudes towards health care in one national concept. Divergent cultural and social impediments make the health care scenario more complicated. Consumers are now from the modern societies are more aware of their policies. The policy makers are now more concerned regarding consumer’s participation to achieve excellent results. UKs culture considered to be the founder of prevailing best strategies for healthcare though it has some negative notion like increase taxation.
MFIs that address the health needs of their clients, in additional to financial services, offer a more complete poverty alleviation solution. According to the Social Enterprise Associates, poverty is typically analyzed as an economic issue with level of income as the common measure used to determine an individual’s level of well being. In today’s world, however, it is critical to look at other deprivations, such as lack of food, housing, clothing, education, and healthcare. As such, MFIs become stronger and more viable in their mission to alleviate poverty when they take advantage of the service model to incorporate a dimension like health as a primary goal. It seems that the positive externalities are multi-fold, as a healthier clientele allows the improved success of MFIs in the future, as well as the ability of clients to pay back loans and sustain the MFIs.
In a prevailing fee-for-service outpatient setting, in order to generate more revenue, the institution and the individual clinicians may sacrifice quality for more quantity (for example generating unnecessary tests) or improve efficiency to maintain quality and profits; 5). The ownership type may affect this pathway in that the private ownership because of its share-holder mandate for profits may have a stronger incentive for profits than the public hospital which at least in theory has a social mandate – the stronger incentive for profits may lead to inferior quality if the efficiency does not change; however, the private nature may also make the private hospitals more efficient than the public ones; the higher efficiency may enable the private hospitals to generate larger revenue while maintaining quality.
• Linking a patient based quality measurement tool to the process of care increases its usefulness in diagnosing quality problems, motivating staff and focusing improvement efforts while limiting its value for benchmarking because the process may differ between organizations. Nguyen Thanh Cong , etal (2014) conducted the research in the direction of how the service quality made an impact in patient satisfaction and he found the tangibles service quality dimensions was causes on strongest influence in patient satisfaction followed by attitude ,medical ethics and finally accessibility to health care services and the findings suggested the tangible elements is very important such as facilities in inside the hospitals , medical equipment and physical hospital environment is the predictors of patients‟ satisfaction. Nandakumar Mekoth etal (2012) found the quality of the doctor and that of the medical support staff significantly impact patient satisfaction. However, the quality of nonmedical support staff is not found to have any significant effect on patient
Since they do not receive such assistance, and therefore are better suited only those who can afford to go. • Extensive cover for eligible cancer treatment including out-patient consultations, diagnostic tests and therapies, quality treatment with a choice of consultants and specialists and patient privacy maintained in a clean and comfortable environment, usually with an en-suite room and 24 hour help line offering medical information and guidance is provided however, many patients might not afford to pay for such services. OPPORTUNITIES • Government and private hospitals collaboration for providing quality healthcare system. • Mergers and acquisitions are a strategy to expand a hospitals ' marketplace • Efficiency is innovation—the development of new treatments that are more effective, have a greater positive impact on patient outcomes, and are ultimately less expensive than current standards of care. CHALLENGES • Population health is one of the biggest ideas in healthcare.
Despite the evidence that can vouch for the gathered conclusions, first and foremost there must be a political will to accept them, regardless of (every so often conflicting) requirements of particular interest groups. Moreover, although quality economic evaluations may indicate exceptional relative cost-effectiveness of individual health intervention or technology, there can be obstacles in obtaining necessary funds. For example, goals attractive for funding are often short-term in nature, which means that interventions with potential long-term savings (such as prevention of chronic illnesses) are not always recognized in the health budget planning (26). Besides, for health technology with unit cost efficiency there can be financing difficulties in situations with too many potential users, as intervention becomes too expensive in absolute terms
As hospitals develop, prices of healthcare information technologies can potentially decrease because there will be greater opportunity for their use in the facility when legal and security issues are resolved. Whether other difficulties will be encountered depends on the hospital staff and officers. After the project, the hospital director and emergency services staff were driven to pursue greater excellence in value delivery. The result of this undertaking is exhibited by the emergency services head who actively looked for alternative methods of data entry, such as the application of speech recognition
• Many charities provide education about hygiene, diet and health. These schemes are not creating dependency, because they are not necessarily giving money, but do improve the well-being of societies. Disadvantages of aid: • Countries can become dependent on money given by foreign donors instead of developing their own economy to become independent. • Aid money does not always reach the most needy and instead is taken by corrupt officials. Some aid like medicine can also get help up by bureaucracy and actually be out of date by the time it reaches the intended recipients.
