Kerr (2002), reports that if there is a structured handover method the quality of care is promoted and nurses will have a full understanding and knowledge about the patients. Glen (1998) also discussed the importance of having a structured handover process stating that it will lead to an development in the quality of care delivered (K. Chung, 2011). The literature review reveals bedside theme emerged from nursing handover. The current research available may not be substantial but it does indicate support from the large amount of anecdotal evidence which claims that nursing bedside handover is an effective form of handover process. Literature shows that there are paybacks in transporting out bedside handover, it proposes that bedside handover helps to put up associations amid nurses and patients’ and it also amplified patient’s satisfaction.
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.

The purpose of this paper will be first to identify a new model for nursing care delivery that will ensure improvement in both the quality and economic outcomes for our organization. Secondly, I will articulate how various key concepts of the new model will help improve the quality of service delivery in our organization while minimizing costs. Finally, well formatted empirical, scholarly evidence will be provided to support the raised ideas. Two areas where the hospital expenses due to patient injuries can be minimized and where the quality of patient care can be improved have been identified by the management of the operating room. The patient care delivery model which has been in operation up to date will be changed to focus on injury prevention
Abstract- Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS), with various data mining techniques being applied to assist physicians in diagnosing patient disease with similar symptoms, has received a great attention recently. The advantages of clinical decision support system include not only improving diagnosis accuracy but also reducing diagnosis time. In this paper, we have given the CDSS with some advance technologies like Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier has offered many advantages over the traditional healthcare systems and opens a new way for clinicians to predict patient’s diseases. As healthcare is the field in which Security of data related to patient diseases are needs to be more secure, for that in this paper, we have use RSA
Rehabilitation is key for a variety of acute and chronic diseases. It can eliminate the consequences of the disease or at least mitigate them, so that participation in socioeconomic life and / or the working capacity is restored. With intensive treatment in the hospital, the patient can achieve great progress in a short time. After discharge, patients are challenged to continue the prescribed measures (e.g. exercise programs, nutrition plans) on their own.
Clinical practice guidelines are known as the finest and most significant foundations of efforts, which are used for improving health care by reducing all the affected issues. There is the fundamental relationship between clinical guideline and issue that has been mentioned above. This provides a pattern of taking decision to the management for generating a healthy competition, which is beneficial for patients, staff, and hospital.

For example, allowing shared patient medical records will increase efficiency and improve physicians understanding of their visiting patient. Having the full medical access for patients allows health care providers to make informed decisions on their patients overall care. This collaboration allows providers to work together in combination therapy more seamlessly and transparent to have better outcomes.
