Interpersonal skills can potentially enhance the patient’s medical experience, which could otherwise be traumatic or overwhelming. Without such skills, medical practitioners have limited opportunities to determine accurate judgments, which could lead to patients feeling disempowered or distressed; such as the role of a Radiographer when performing clinical assessment. By connecting emotionally and listening mindfully, medical practitioners can engage patients to become more proactive and accountable for their own health care. This is an ultimate goal for all Medical Practitioners.
Interprofessional teams are valuable because each health care professional has specialized knowledge and skills so that health care plans are determined with patients’ best interests in mind. With the communication of ideas amongst the disciplines, their roles consequently complement one another in an age of exponentially growing information. This team process of care coordination can improve quality of care, enhance client satisfaction, and reduce hospital cost by decreasing length of stay; care coordination ensures the best possible outcomes (Koch, 2014, p. 436). Discharge planning emerged as one of the major focuses of the delivery of health care in the 1980’s. The discharge planning meant to develop treatment plans that ultimately result in the discharge of the client from the facility.

Sim and Radloff (2009) assert that altruism is an important attribution of professionalism, and that it is the responsibility of the healthcare professional to place patient interest and well-being over monetary gain. Therefore, radiologic professionals acting altruistic and emphatic with patients leads to better patient compliance and fulfillment. As with most medical professionals, radiologic professionals have a great responsibility when interacting with patients. Patients tend to view medical staff as powerful and omniscient (Adler & Carlton, 2012). According to Yielder and Davis (2009), this dominance derives from the extraordinary knowledge, techniques, and skills of the medical staff.
This can’t be done without the help of hospitals, administrators, and executives. True integration means aligning physician and hospital goals and giving physicians real decision-making and leadership roles, (Aston, 2013). Hospitals have the advantage to bring in specialists for certain disease specific treatment and procedures. There’s a lot of implementing and decision-making when it comes to choosing physician specialists because the costs and insurance rates are important to consider. The hospital and physician practices in prior decades are not the same today and it’s vital to uphold standards for patient safety, care, and medical costs.
This needs to be a big part of the health professionals practice as the misuse and cause of feelings stated above, may result in poorer rather than better health outcomes.

The health information exchange improves the quality of care in healthcare organizations. One area of concern when being a part of the health information exchange is technical issues that could occur in the system. Getting patient information to successfully transfer from provider to provider, state agencies included, is a challenge that health information organizations can face. “Although these organizations have proven the ability to receive information, they have realized that a lack of consensus in terms of standards prevents them from pushing data effectively and economically.”(Milstine, 2011 p.761) This issue has the potential to be a problem for health information managers because HIM professionals must follow all laws and standards for protecting patient personal health information.

After a few generations, however, the Internet will have helped get rid of the worlds “excess” cultures, and the ethnosphere will have shrunk. Then, artwork will be necessarily less culturally diverse, due to a worldwide lack of culture.
Social adequacy is a dying skillset that has been further wiped out by the incessant need for screen-to-screen relationships. It is much easier to talk through a screen or over the internet because “this generation is much more comfortable [with it]” (Joseph,1) as opposed to talking face-to-face. The current generation has tools that the past generations never even dreamed of, such as; webcam calling, internet personas and instant messaging over the internet. With these constant resources, it leads to more and more people choosing to instead to “hide behind the text” and “project any image they want” (Forbes, 1) to their recipient.
