I will also explain the advantages and disadvantages for hospitals and physician’s models. All of these things are important for health care administrators to understand about the relationship between a physician and the facility they work at. One of the first things we will discuss is what an integrated physician model actually is. As defined by our text book “an integrated physician model is the result of a series of partnerships between hospitals and physicians developed over time.” Since that is the text book definition lets try and clear it up just a little bit. The integrated physician model really is a very generic term that is showing an effort by both the physician and hospital for a very wide range of purposes.
Expanding access to services help patients adopt healthy behaviors The health system’s plan called for an increase in the number of primary care providers in the community, the development of an integrated delivery system that would span the continuum of care, and greater use of care management techniques to decrease utilization and promote cost-efficiency. The plan also called for a reduction in hospital bed capacity. Collaboration among others Genesys take part in community efforts to help improve the health of the community. Genesys Regional Medical Center has joined with other local health services and local providers, purchasers, and schools, organizations in efforts to improve the health issues of Genesee County residents, while reducing costs and disorganization in care. Patient access.
Patient-centered care places the patient “as the source of control and full partner in providing compassionate and coordinated care based on respect for patient’s preferences, values, and needs.” (QSEN, 2012) Too often healthcare professionals look at the patient as only a medical problem, not as an individual person. In a 2013 publication, Chen and Snyder noted the traditional disease-focused model is changing to one where care is customized to each individual person. There are six dimensions of patient-centered care, including the previously mentioned definition to include: comfort, coordination and integration of care, free flow of information, spiritual awareness and involvement of family and friends (Drenkard, 2013). These dimensions show the importance of patient-centered care. Patient-centered care forces the providers, nurses included, to look at each patient as an individual person; not every patient diagnosed with pneumonia is the same, each has different values and cultures that must be treated exclusively.
APNs must put patient care and health care policy first. Cockerham and Keeling define APN as specialist in nursing (2014). Each definition is very different, but they are all important concepts that make up the role of an APN. The ANA and APRN definations are very similar because they both put focus on the importance of evidenced based practice
Furthermore, evidence-based practice indicates when making decisions about patient care based on quality evidence reduces complications and lowers healthcare cost (Brewer, 2011). Standardizing patient care nationally, using the most up to date research, is the goal of evidence-based care. Historical perspective of research in nursing
Hospitalizations refers to a goal of reducing the amount of patient’s being sent out of the facility to a hospital. Many changes in condition can be managed by staff in order to avoid trauma associated with hospitalization. Resident centered care promotes autonomy, purpose and meaning in the daily life of the resident. Lastly, consistent staffing allows the residents to benefit from safe nurse to patient ratios. In addition, the residents benefit from experience and staff knowledge, this increases competence and confidence of staff while building a therapeutic relationship between staff and
Population health is a field which includes health outcomes, patterns of health determinants and policies and interventions that link these two (Kindig & Stoddart, 2003). More recently, the National Academy of Medicine defined population health as an approach that treats the population as a whole (including the environmental and community contexts) as the patient (NACNEP, 2016). Allied health professionals relate to population health through the understanding of the increased demand to serve the population rather than only the individual. The three most critical areas to better serve the health of the population as allied health professionals include 1) viewing the population’s health as a whole, versus as individuals, 2) to emphasize the need to practice quality improvement and patient safety in all instances when a medical decision is made, and 3) take into consideration all sub-populations when judging the health of an entire population. To shift from individual patient care, based on active symptoms, is the current practice of most healthcare professionals.
M1: access the usefulness of theories of communication within health and social care environments Introduction In this assignment I am going to discuss the usefulness of argyles and the SOLER theory. Argyles theory of communication was invented by physiologist known as Michael argyle. Michael argyles communication cycle shows what everyone does when communicate and it is all about this constant cycle. The communication cycle is when someone decides to communicate takes action (message sent), which is received by the other person (message received), then the meaning of the message is worked out (message decoded) and then this person lets the other person know what they have understood (feedback).Argyles theory is about a communication cycle and it focuses mainly around six major concepts which are first an idea occurs, the message is coded, the message is sent, the message is received , the message is decoded is lastly understood. Argyles theory is about a communication cycle and it centres six core concepts which are first an idea occurs, the message is coded, the message is sent, the message is
Applying Health Promotion Model to a Practice Problem It was learned from the first part of the paper that problem is inevitable and it is part of daily healthcare practice. One problem focused in the previous paper was about the safe staffing issues particularly about the safe staff level of nurses to patients. In this paper, the issue regarding safety staffing will be recalled by providing a brief summary of what was learned from the previous paper, and a middle range theory will be applied to the said problem. Applying a theory to intervene a healthcare issue can be done in providing nursing care and through the leadership and action of those in the administration of health care services. The middle range theory of Nola Pender’s Health
Hospitals that have magnet status recognition may find it easier to recruit quality nurses, which are especially important due to the current nursing shortage (Russell, 2010). Having a highly qualified nursing staff that is satisfied with its practice environment translates into better patient care and more satisfied patients (Smith, 2005). CMS gives preferred provider status to hospitals and health organizations that have Joint Commission accreditation. Conclusion National accreditation plays a major role in establishing credibility and accountability within health care facilities including: hospitals, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), clinics and ambulatory surgical centers. The purpose of accreditation is to make sure quality of care at health structures meets minimal standards as set by accrediting boards like the Joint Commission, The National Committee for Quality Assurance and, The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
Furthermore, there has to be a deeper understanding of the structure, this therefore allows for the altering of the present system, by creating a clear division of services; separating acute care from chronic conditions and the use of planned visits and case management of high risk patients. According to Grant and Greene (2012) states that the health care home model is used to reduce the disparities in the incidence, severity and morbidity ambulatory care sensitive conditions as well as NCDs that affect the poor and minority adults such as
This is where one type of plan will explain what is to be expected for users. Explaining the benefits is practically as important as the application itself: for determining the value of the health care may be "service dependent" ("Medicaid", 2015). Another important term that should be well known is clean claims. Clean claims identify the health professional, health facility, home health care provider or durable medical equipment provider that has given service to verify affiliation status. In short, it identifies a lot of the medical information to make it more transparent.
Security should always be required when accessing patient records. Data use agreements and connections between HIE organizations are also a concern with health information exchange. “The types of healthcare partners that are needed is a challenge when determining the trading area needed for a viable HIE” (PHII, 2005). Although there are challenges, there are opportunities with implementing a health information exchange system. One opportunity is HIE can improve reporting to public health and in return improve the health of the community.
Make and keep your major health decisions with advance health care directives. While they vary by state, advance directives can carry significant importance, especially as one gets older and increasingly concerned with health care and end-of-life decisions. Typically, two basic advance directives can cover a patient’s needs: the durable power of attorney for health care and the living will. Both serve the purpose of empowering the individual concerning personal health care in the case of incapacitation by illness or injury. The living will protects a person’s predetermined choices relating to how their physician carries out their health care or end-of-life care in the event that they become unconscious or mentally incapable.
These standards will encourage electronic commerce in the health care industry and make the process involved much easier. This decision will result in a huge burden taken off health care providers and health plans. Today, both parties have a variety of formats for electronic transactions. The Secretary Of Health And Human Services adopted standards that was left with no choice by the HIPAA, (1) health claims and equivalent encounter information (2) enrollment and disenrollment in a health plan (3) eligibility for a health plan (4) health care payment and remittance advice (5) health plan premium payments (6) health claim status (7) referral certification and authorization and (8) coordination of benefits. For those who fail to abide with the changes made will have penalties of not more than $100 per violation on any person.
