Health psychology is trying to find all the causes and is working to change them. In this way they assist people take care of their health which is also termed as “self care” (Sarafino, Edward, and. Smith, 2002). This led to great advancement in the field of “genetic research” as it aids to find out the main root (genetic makeup) of the problem. Another field called epidemiology also studies the closely about
There is still room to improve our healthcare system and the future of medical and public health education. Education in healthcare should be addressed as a whole, because healthcare entities overlap with each other in order to meet the health needs of individuals and the population. One tool that is helping in the integration of healthcare is technology. Technology is changing the way we learn and is providing better tools to teach students and practice medicine. It is also providing us with better data that allows us to evaluate and create programs that will reduce and eliminate health risks in our community.
The Impact of Informatics on Healthcare Technology has impacted health care in ways that will allow the practicing professional to deliver the best care that is relevant to patients today. As new technology continues to emerge, and as healthcare professionals (HCP) continue to utilize the current research available, it will become safer to manage and apply advanced health care for patients today that was not available previously. Also, centralizing patient data will allow the (HCP) to see an extensive view of the patient profile that will help to deliver quality, safe and cost-effective care. Technology has an impact on the safe delivery of care. Safety has always been in the forefront in managing patient care, especially when administering medications.
This result supports the results of the previous studies and systematic reviews on determinants of patient satisfaction. 24, 139 However, there is evidence that socio-demographic factors of patients affect the satisfaction with health services. Yet, the contradictory effects of the socio-demographic variables may show that these variables should be taken into account when comparing patient satisfaction between specific groups or countries 24, 141 due to their potential moderating and mediating effects on the associations between health service quality indicators and patient satisfaction. 4,
Abstract:The modern ICU generates large volumes of complex and multimodal data. Interpreting and utilizing this information is challenging for the ICU Physician. By enhancing the ICU Clinical Decision Support System its outcomes in critical patients will be improved by providing real-time decision support, decreasing medical errors, and minimizing life-threatening events caused by delayed or uninformed medical decisions. In addition to basic patient demographics, pre-existing comorbidity data, and medication usage, it also emulate more event categories such as nurse-verified chart events, laboratory tests, and fluid balance records. For making critical decisions, these events based categories with event duration are more helpful.
ICU Hospital Reflection Jasmine Wymore West Coast University ICU Hospital Reflection ICU is a sensitive environment in a hospital setting. The patient safety and care are given the priorities in ICU. For this reason, the ICU management requires vital attention in executing efficient services to rescue and improve patient health. The advancement in technology has improved the field of medicine. Doctors, nurses, and technicians are the beneficiaries of the technology advancement.
Development and implementation of new information technologies that allow global networking, give modern medicine the epithet of “informatical medicine”. Information technologies increasingly provide the help in system approach of solving medical problems . Disposition of the right information enables the preparation of accurate reports, for example, usage of hospital capacities, or number of occupied beds. At the same time it is easier to monitor treatment and to check the information exchange. Use of information technologies enables change of the healthcare system - how to improve public health, the healthcare of the system users, reduce costs, save time and
Clinical research is from acute to chronic care experience throughout life span. It involves health promotion and preventive care for individual, families and communities in different settings. It is important for nursing research to widen the scope in order to have a greater impact in future. The aspect of health promotion and preventive care are very important because some diseases are better prevented than treated and while some changes are irreversible such as aging are part of human experience. Health systems and outcomes research focuses on how health care delivery influences quality, cost and experience of patient.
Using information from staff workers, patients, and chart review all combine will be a better tool in assessing patient safety in medical settings. One practical implications of the study is the suggestion of the use of incident reports as educational material for health workers and medical students. This technique would positivity impact health worker by increasing their consciousness regarding patient safety. Another practical implication is the proposal that medical centers in general should always use more than one type of incident detection. A combinations of sources of information from hospital staff members an d patients should be use in order to achieve a more accurate
Adequate treatment of common illnesses and injuries 8. Provision of essential medication. (WHO,2003) The Approach to health beyond the traditional health care system focuses on health equity-producing social policy. This study would have an important input in assessing the level of clients' satisfaction on outpatient as well as inpatient health care services. It identifies the factors affecting the clients' satisfaction, and provides a recommendation on an improved health service delivery that will be helpful to fill research knowledge gaps which ultimately contributes to enhance quality of patient services in the primary health care centers and improve the level of clients' satisfaction (Birna, 2006).
