Also, the system promotes more sound clinical decision making through the integration of patient data from a variety or multiple sources within a healthcare institution. Slide three Effect of an electronic health information system on Patient Centered Care Patient centered care is an important part of maintaining and improving the quality of healthcare and making sure that the interests of the patient are given the first priority. Thanks to the rapid advancements in healthcare, specifically regarding informatics, an electronic healthcare information system provides the best and a consistent improvement of quality healthcare. An electronic health information system allows patients and their healthcare providers to have a more active role and participate in their journey towards health. Today, nurses and other healthcare providers are using electronic health information systems to enter, organize and conduct detailed and thorough analysis of the medical information of their clients.
Although the vital purpose of big data management is similar to, and a much better understanding of the issues, the values sought, and also the challenges that involved differing significantly between business companies and healthcare organizations. Business companies use big data to influence customers' desires and behavior patterns, develop distinctive core competencies, and build innovative products or services, whereas governments and healthcare stakeholders use big data and predictive analytics to look for sustainable solutions to such problems as pursuit public health, deciding and implementing more appropriate treatment methods for patients, supporting clinical enhancements, monitoring the protection of healthcare systems, reassuring
Evidence-based practice specifically focuses on a holistic approach that encompasses clinical expertise, patient values, and the best researched evidence to improve patient care outcomes. As healthcare trends change to comply with the adoption of enhanced technology, compliance of government healthcare reimbursements, and higher quality care, strong leadership and continued research is needed (Huber, 2014). Nurse leaders have the vital, but sometimes challenging duty of promoting evidence-based practices in a usually complex healthcare setting. Not only should the nurse leader gather clinical data that may help improve patient outcomes and nurse practices, nurse leaders should also encourage a work environment that is open to the change that results from evidence-based practice discoveries. Through the development of a building-block approach, nurse leaders can promote evidence-based practices by incorporating the process in every aspect of the healthcare structure they supervise.
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
• 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
Patient’s involvement in care decisions and disease management activities have better outcomes in terms of patient satisfaction, health status and service utilization than those who don’t. The patient centered approach focuses on the cognitive, rational side of human behaviour. But a better understanding of both rational and experimental modes of processing is needed to research the full effectiveness of any patient centered strategy. Beyond the personal and interpersonal action tendencies, emotions affect a persons’ health-related information processing, decisions and behaviour. A provider who is aware of emotion-laden patient expectations will be able to decide which interpersonal strategy is most appropriate at each clinical encounter.
Patient satisfaction has become a key criterion by which the quality of health care services is evaluated. The literature emphasizes that patients who are satisfied with the provision of health care tend to be more compliant to their treatment plan, maintain their follow up visits; and are more willing to recommend the hospital to others. The literature emphasizes that hospital accreditation and patient satisfaction are both considered important quality indicators of healthcare delivered. The results of patient satisfaction surveys can be used to monitor the quality of health care provided, to find out any shortages, to provide the necessary interventions, and as a valuable source of strategic planning of health services. It is judgment that a product or a services feature, or the product or service itself, provide a pleasurable level of consumption related fulfilment.
Unsurprisingly, healthcare vital sponsors like administrators and decision makers are always on the lookout for appropriate methods to better manage the above-mentioned problems, streamline the system and as a result improve the outcomes and experience for the patient, and at the same time, optimize the escalating costs(4). Lean Six Sigma is one of the ways to try to achieve this end goal through better process management, removing non-value add components from the system and making the healthcare delivery system defect free. It is a suitable methodology for application to healthcare settings as it requires attention to detail and can support and sustain the volume, speed and precision involved in various healthcare processes(5). Objectives of the Review: • The objective of this review is to understand the basics of Six Sigma and Lean and what tools these methodologies use to improve different processes and solve certain business problems. In addition to that it is also imperative to see how these methodologies can be implemented on to some of the healthcare processes to improve process efficiency and clinical
A patient’s bill of rights is a list which contains some guarantees for people that are receiving medical care. The bill was presented by the American Hospital Association with the aim that it will contribute to more effective care. Patient’s bill of right among other things ensures patients information, fair treatment and autonomy over any other decision by health care providers. The uses of bill of rights in clients care cannot be overemphasized. Firstly, it assures sense of fairness in health care system because one major goal is to meet patients’ needs.
Feedback The feedback given by the patient helps to improve the overall work of the physician, place, and also the system. Patient feedback can be obtained by patient questionnaires, follow-up phone calls, suggestion box, referral physician's survey, etc. It also help them improve the quality of patient perceptions of quality of care. The data can be used to design effective strategies to improve efficiency of care given to the patients Care for the uninsured/underinsured Having a large uninsured and
