Our medical facilities are great places when they follow guidelines to promote healthy living and great patient care. Its one thing to say that your following them but another to actually implement them. It makes the living environment for the patients much better. To receive the best care possible the Patient to Nurse ratio must be taken into affect immediately. Patients will not receive the adequate care they need until then.
Each diagnostic criteria needs to be addressed in number of ways (Shea, 1988). Sometimes, the patient describe their symptoms in more idiosyncratic way. So, the clinician needs to translate those concerns in to the nosological system (Dozois & Dobson, 2009). Bolland & Keller (2009) emphasize the need to assess the number of previous episodes and their duration because this information is one the predictor for risk of subsequent relapse (Solomon et al, 2000). Dozois & Dobson (2009) have reported to rely upon information related to previous episode carefully as the client may commit the reporting bias.
Consumer-driven healthcare plans are beginning to emerge and grow across the country (Weaver, 2010). Consumer-directed healthcare plans are popular for employers because more of the decision making and risks fall on the employees. Therefore, reducing the amount of money the employer spends on healthcare. Criticism/drawbacks of Managed Care: One major criticism
The rising demands for doctors is leading to a movement of more efficient care. The ACA has already begun to make strides to help alleviate this pressing issue. Another driving factor, pushing us forward will be the cost of care. U.S health spending is much greater across the board for all categories of care, but regrettably, even after all the money invested into our current medical system we are lagging behind other countries on the effectiveness of the care provided. The U.S will need to pay attention to other countries, such as France and Japan, and see what they are doing that is working, and try to immolate their example.
Same goes to the cost, the organization (clinic) can save more in terms of stationary and they do not have to hire many workers to manage their records. Electronic Medical Record (EMR) provides convenient access to the staff of the clinic. It also provides quick access to patients’ information each time staff wants to retrieve the data. Other than that, the system could help in solving record movement problems and at the same time improve the quality of the process. In terms of security, using the EMR is more secured compared to manual system as it can be restricted to certain user for example to medical officer and receptionist.
First off, I would like to recommend a better patient to healthcare worker ratio. The patient stress the importance of healthcare workers spending quality time with the patients. I find that by improving the ratios so that the demand for help and the supply would be a good balance for healthcare workers to spend/give each patient the care that they need. This is also beneficial for the healthcare workers because they’ll get to know that patient more, they’ll have the chance to actually hear what the patient wants, and it’ll help prevent burnout. This is beneficial for the facility overall because having healthy workers would mean that they can provide better services to the patients.
SENSORY BRANDING APPROACH A) Branding Concept and Models Nowadays, companies and product are competing in a world filled with competitors who is looking more customers like themselves. In this context, the challenges faced by developers is increasing day by day. Companies are able to provide different products of similar quality. To meet customers needs and to persuade them that their products are the most suitable products is one of the biggest challenges. In other words, the biggest reason that revealing branding is; the requirement to provide a control on trade and consumers.
Some health plans such as Medicare has plans to include incentives to promote the use of Health Information Technology (HIT) in P4P programs. Last standard component is patient experience (patient satisfaction) measures, these measures at times can be controversial. The patient experience measures are reflecting the values that patients place in the service or consumption of health care. Physician communication is a main approach in patient experience. There are some skeptics that question the usefulness of patient experience measures.
2. Chronic care model; takes a wide approach to ensure improvement of patient care and improved health outcomes, as it is patient centered and involves community(3). 3. Preventive care model; prevention is one of the most efficient way of reducing health cost, though if used unnecessarily, it could drive costs up. However, this is a unique model that focuses on patient-physician relations and aims at averting illnesses/mortality by screening and regular hospital visits(4).
