Personal Health Records There is no stopping technology. It has infiltrated every aspect of our lives. Information is more accessible and there is a market to satisfy our need to be informed. The population is considerably more educated and feel empowered enough to voice their opinion concerning their own health. With this growing awareness, it is understandable that the government and health care organization would be on board to implement a digital system to allow patients access to their own information.
However, if no appropriate technique is developed to ﬁnd great potential economic values from big healthcare data, these data might not only become meaningless but also requires a large amount of space to store and manage. Over the past two decades, the miraculous evolution of data mining technique has imposed a major impact on the revolution of human’s lifestyle by predicting behaviors and future trends on everything which can convert stored data into meaningful information. These techniques are well suitable for providing decision support in the healthcare setting. To speed up the diagnosis time and improve the diagnosis accuracy, a new system in healthcare industry should be workable to provide a much cheaper and faster way for diagnosis . Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS), with various data mining techniques being applied to assist physicians in diagnosing patient diseases with similar symptoms, has received a great attention
3.1 Virtual Clinics Benefits and Services The following are some of the benefits provided by virtual clinics: a) Provision of clinical supports: remote and real time direct patient care will be provided where health care professionals diagnose patients remotely through video conferencing with direct conversations. This helps to overcome the geographical barriers, connecting patients who are not in the same physical location with the health care professionals. b) Clinical Data Transfer: Sharing of compressed video, audio, medical data such as scanned X-ray, ultrasound and compressed images from one clinic to another. c) Patient Monitoring: Disease surveillance and patient monitoring are preventive measures. These help in providing useful information
Medtronic and Johnson & Johnson entered into Watson Health partnerships with IBM, personalising diabetes management solutions, Novo Nordisk signed up to an IBM Watson Health Cloud to launch a digital platform to help manage patients’ diabetes, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) collaboration with IBM Watson to allow GSK consumers to ask questions via voice or text, GSK and Sanofi have joint ventures with Verily Life Sciences, to develop bioelectronics medicines and comprehensive diabetes management platforms. Digital Health Concerns 1. The rights and responsibilities of the different stakeholders involved in connected digital health need to be better recognized and highlighted. Some healthcare and consumers are currently excluded from full partition in digital health ecosystem due to lack of necessary infrastructure, social disadvantage or because their needs are not adequately recognized. 2.
Health information exchange model and standards Health information exchange (HIE) is defined as “the electronic movement of health-related information among organizations according to nationally recognized standards” . Occasionally, HIE is also called health information network (HIN). HIE lets doctors, pharmacists, nurses, radiologists, lab technicians and other health care providers and patients to properly access and securely share a patient’s vital medical information electronically. This will lead to an improving in the safety, cost, speed and quality of patient care. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) , was signed
• It create solid plan of action. • Empowers a fact base approach • Emphasis documentations Impact the technology will have on future health care delivery • As the population increasing everyday, there aren’t enough health care practitioners to tend to all of them, despite the growth of the health care industry • Digital Medicine will be a vital part of society given the practicality of one’s health to be monitored and shared to their providers without the hassle of a travel to the doctor’s office Five key technology impacts on healthcare delivery: • Investing in procurements of medical devices. • Numerous data storage for information through HER’ • Processing of different information from multiple avenues. • Electronic medical records allowing patients/physicians interaction in a limited form with doctors facial visit. • Digital diagnostic dictation of illness for patients that needs home care without hospital visit.
There is more information that you can find on hospitals such as how often do patients that were discharged, get readmitted into the hospital. In addition the other information you can find on hospitals is the use of medical imaging , and the payment, and the value of care. The kinds of hospitals that you can get information on are Medicare-certified hospitals, and Veterans Hospital Administration
These stakeholders can be either data providers or users, depending on what context they provide and use data Patient monitoring enables healthcare professionals to remotely monitor patient’s health condition. Location-based medical services enable pervasive healthcare service provider to track the location of the elderly or the mental health patients who are ambulatory but restricted to certain areas and to help patients locating the nearest healthcare facility. Incident detection notifies healthcare professionals if there is a critical change on patient’s health condition. Emergency responses and management efficiently facilitates the emergency services by dispatching the nearest ambulatory vehicles to where the emergency event happens and sending patients to the nearest hospital. Pervasive access to medical data allows healthcare professionals or patients to view and update the clinical records by using the mobile devices.
This would be because this the age of the World Wide Web. The internet is growing so much, so fast, the APRN should be aware of the pros and cons involved that would improve healthcare or make it worse. This would include a lot of education for the patient and the patient’s family and/or caregiver. The APRN should also know how to use technology to their advantage and help with the care of the patient. This would include things such as having a website for the primary care office and keeping it up to date with pertinent information.
The Healthcare Knowledge Worker Name Institution The Healthcare Knowledge Worker Introduction Healthcare informatics is the study that deals with the data and processes of communication as well as the systems in healthcare. This branch of science gives room for fresh electronic technology as well as information systems where the practitioners can easily access data preserved in computer systems. The study aims at knowing the primary nature of information and communication processes in the healthcare. It also focuses on providing a description for the principles that mold these processes. The aim of this essay is to discuss the tasks of healthcare in relationship to application of health information technologies to enhance safe
