The health information exchange does much more than share patient data. It provides better opportunity to increase quality of care; it saves money related to healthcare costs for hospital organizations in many ways, and increases efficiency by minimizing all the unnecessary paperwork. The HIE is a great way for patients to stay connected with their primary care providers and is a much easier way for patients to stay engaged in their own health care. Patients have the opportunity to share their health information through the exchange, which provides for improvement in public health and monitoring.
Integrated voice recognition. Speech recognition technology solidifies patient-physician relationships. Dictating relevant information is less arduous and time consuming than manually entering patient history and health concerns. Integrated technology allows physicians ample opportunity to observe subtle physical and emotional cues during the exam. Enhanced interfaces.
That’s why, health care should be provided by Government and people will get lots of benefits as access to care, affordable to all, quality, lower cost, easy to provide, fewer bills, and less expensive too. Providing access is the most important issue of health care. There are lots of expectations of health care who pays tax and they don’t want to deny them access to the bill. They want a good provider who serves the patient with fast and easy care.
Information technology has made important achievements to our world, namely in the medical industry. With the increased use of electronic medical records (EMR), and mobile technologies like tablets and smart phones, making health information available electronically when and where it is needed. physicians and patients are both seeing the benefits that these new medical technologies are bringing. Health information technology provides healthcare providers by accurate and complete information about a patient 's health, which enable the providers to give the best possible care. It provides information to help diagnose health problems sooner, and reduce medical errors.
One advantage is that it reduces logistical issues. It makes the collections of payments simpler because it is now becoming centralized. Providers are able to coordinate the patients care along with the patients other provider. The EMR system saves time and effort by allowing the doctor to fax and email another doctor or laboratory, which can cut down the usual wait time. It is important for the doctor to have access to getting information quickly and accurately within a timely manner, so he can give the patient all of his attention and time that is needed to heal that patient illness or injury.
Executive Summary There is opportunity to improve the quality of health care in Jones Hospital. Information technology (IT) offers the potential to address the organization’s most pressing dilemmas: care fragmentation, medical errors, and rising costs. The leading example of this is the electronic health record (EHR). An EHR, as explained by HealthIT.gov (n.d.), is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart. It includes, but is not limited to, medical history, diagnoses, medications, and treatment plans.
It helps to coordinate patient’s care, reduces treatments, and prevents costly mistakes. The first benefit of the HIE security is to increase efficiency that eliminates many paperwork that is unnecessary (www.healthit.gov). Another benefit that will help medical practices is to have better security in HIEs and to facilitate efficient deployment of emerging technology, health care services, and exchange of healthcare among patient providers. Lastly, it decreases the cost in redundant tests and procedures. The reason why the HIEs needs to be cautious in protecting medical records and all the medical practices because it helps prevent errors so that everyone involved in patient’s care rather it in primary care settings or in the emergency department.
1. Introduction Nowadays, digital electronic devices have been used to make a lot of things easier and better. Personal computers have been successful to help people in their works and to provide entertainment, thus it is not surprising if now people are thinking to make the electronic systems to be incorporated further into medical field, so that its service can be cheaper, easier to be accessed, and better in quality. Some patients with chronic illness sometimes need to be monitored closely by medical team. By having the patients attached with suitable sensors which can transmit data over the network, it is possible for the patients to have long-term monitoring without the need for a long and expensive stay in hospital.
EHR will help them to identify efforts required in making decisions (Mohd & Mohamad, 2005). EHR technology can help hospital administration also. EHR systems will help health care industry to manage their patient records. These systems will improve patients care. With EHR systems it is easier to store history of records of patients.
It involves the use of qualified and dedicated nursing team who extensively monitors and assesses the patient to ensure quick recovery. Hoeman (2002) stated that safe nursing care involves the use of nursing methods whose aim is to prevent the worsening of a medical condition. Various medical-researches have linked safe and quality nursing care to faster recovery of patients (ANA, 2014). Therefore, in regards to the patient with colon cancer; a quick recovery would not only lead to minimal medical costs but also result into reduced psychological stress (ANA, 2014). Also, safe and quality care would enable a higher operational efficiency by the health institution hence preventing complaints and law suits caused by patient negligence (Delaney, et.
