That will encourage and motivate others to work as a team and help each other. Identify the barriers of change, which might be the staff nurses who are skeptical of change. They may have a lack of confidence in their ability to adapt to new technologies, or may perceive the change as a threat. Some nurses have adopted a short cut process of administering medication to save time, which is pre-pouring medications. Workaround is another big barrier which occurs when nurses pass the medication without scanning the medication and the patient’s identification (ID) band, to save time and scan them later.
Intermountain Healthcare has encircled analytics to improve operations in order to achieve better health care outcomes and make a big difference in patients’ lives. though it is cumbersome challenging for the physicans and nurses but still they took it as challange in order to navigate it! though the use of computer programs are used in order to analyse the patient and examines the data which requires protocols for treatment.but later HELP was the first EHR system in united states which came into existence advantages : saving million bucks in procuring and also in its supply chain! Intermountain’s approach towards the patient and also their concern towards the employees like organizational behaviour alignment to individual alignment on decison
Transitions in care, such as admission to and discharge from the hospital, put patients at risk for errors due to poor communication and inadvertent information loss (1–5). One discrepancy does not necessarily mean an error. In fact, most discrepancies are due to adapting chronic medication to the patient’s newly diagnosed condition, or because the examinations and/or interventions performed could interfere with their usual medication. Medication discrepancies, established as unexplained differences among documented drug regimens at the interfaces of care1 (admission, transfer, and discharge) are highly prevalent. Some are intended therapeutic modifications, but others are unintentional and clinically unjustified.
I like the idea of a health savings account that works like a retirement account which could in term help generate interest over time. This would be mandatory for jobs to place you on this plan which would mean more money out of your check. The rising costs of medical services is a big issue, because I don’t think there is enough completion for costs to remain low. Similar to what Wagner states in her article about the need to keep everything uniform, (2014), my plan would make all hospitals and doctor’s offices uniform in the services that they provide. For those that do not have access to work, will have to follow a program run by welfare offices, where they participant must attend a day program that educated them, in order to receive a stipend on a biweekly basis.
Medicare and Medicaid have been expanded to families unable to afford insurance. This expansion will help hospitals in enrolling patients in these insurance programs helping to cover more of the out of pocket costs patients may not have been able to pay leaving hospitals with the unpaid debt. There are stipulations that hospitals will have to follow in order to be reimbursed for the care provided so they are not under paid as so many hospitals have stated in the
One example of a challenge with health information exchange is sustaining the health information exchange without government help (Markus, Matthews, & Tripathi, 2014). There is always the question of who should pay for what and how much. Another challenge is determining which governing structure should be used. A big challenge that many patients and physicians worry about is how safe sensitive information are and how to treat that information. Security should always be required when accessing patient records.
Patients may be able to pay for their care a small amount at a time, if they receive one bill, receiving multiples is confusing and hard to deal with. The two articles I read have the interest of the patient as most important, instead of separating each little item. Applicability The articles I read, both included the excessive expenditures that are absorbed due to non-insured population. One way to decrease the cost of uninsured is to make sure to separate the billing within the hospitals, regarding charity cases from bad debt, some hospital receive money from the government to help fund charity cases. One way to decrease expenses would be to combine the patients care into one bill.
You don 't have admittance to the innovation, foundation and assets required for quick and exact medical data entry 4. You need to concentrate on medicinal services, yet the weight of data entry is denying you of valuable time and exertion.

Besides, outsourcing medical data entry can help you lessen the expense of work furthermore dispose of the need to contribute on costly data entry software. 5 benefits of outsourcing medical data entry Outsourcing can be more profitable for your healing facility, when contrasted with performing data entry in-house.
PROBLEM SOLUTION With patients today using the threat of reporting low satisfaction rates in the hopes of receiving faster or higher quality care, they seem to have taken the upper hand in some of the decision making of what takes place in the healthcare world today (Sullivan). But is it really the survey results that will make the drastic changes that are needed? Instead of questioning whether providers spend enough time with patients, ensuring that the provider gives the patient the option of which medical treatment or drug is best for them, or simply having the patient rate the provider from 0-10, zero being “worst provider possible” to ten being “best provider possible,” (Ganey) patients should simply be asked to leave comments or concerns about their visit. It is understandable and unfortunate that not everyone in the healthcare field can do their job professionally and appropriately, and those people should be reported. But when one does do their job in a timely manner and practices “first do no harm,” that should be respected by the population that they are taking care of and not degraded just because someone thinks the wait time is too
I think it’s wrong for the government to penalize physicians for not meeting compliance standards. However, It’s a great opportunity for the government to aim at small practices because this is where physicians are self-employed. These types of physicians have numerous clinic or health care facilities and are most likely to commit fraud. This seems kind of biased, but it’s true. According to, Ornstein, the most common sanctions are against physicians who have odd Medicare billing reputations (2014, title).
The journal “Patient Opioid Education” explains how opioid abuse is better if researched health care providers can better educate their patients on the issue. According to Ms. Costello, research is being done to further educate patients about the drugs they are taking. In fact “a quasi-experimental pretest posttest design was used to evaluate nurses’ knowledge of opioids,” (309). Although, the research reveals that patients have a lack of knowledge about safe opioid use this is because nurses lack the understanding of the addiction. Accordingly, all health care providers should have education on opioid dependence to avoid such addictions.
I found Dr. Van Der Kolk to have an interesting point of view for a medical doctor. He believed that people need more than medication in order to get well. In my opinion has taken more of a counselor’s position when it comes to his patients and that is something that I can identify with. I believe that not all mental health problems can be solved by medication alone. Our clients should be able to talk about different feeling and things they are going through.
Staff Shortage has been an ongoing problem for decades and all that is being done is talks about solutions. Increasing salaries and improving work condition. Hiring more quality people and fulfilling the demand that is needed to run each facility properly. These few things might not prevent all problems, but making improvements in interdisciplinary teamwork, combined with making certain that providers and administrators have greater interdisciplinary education in improving quality and building safer environments for patients, could mitigate their harmful
Furthermore, there is a vast need for additional research. There is a necessity to gain knowledge on risk factors and on ways to prevent suicide in order to aid nursing home residents (Bugeja et al., 2015, p. 811). The knowledge of preventing suicide in a nursing home can be helpful for residents as well as for social services. Suicide occurs in nursing homes partially fur to the lack of knowledge on depression. Current research depicts that physicians fail to recognize depression and tend to provide inaccurate treatment (Allgaier, Fejtkova, Hegerl, Kramer, & Mergl, 2009, p. 355).
(Cunningham). It 's a well documented fact that hospitals already have a very difficult time dealing with the uninsured burdening their hospitals for issues that could be treated by a primary care physician. There is an idea that a hospital is a place you can go to get quick treatment for literally any thing nice and quick. (Nelson) And since you don 't have to pay immediately or have to have patient records like a primary physician that can refuse a patient if they do not pay, hospitals seem more palatable for
