An Exploratory Study Of User Resistance In Healthcare It, Madison Ngafeeson, Vishal Midha 2014 Northern Michigan University

An Exploratory Study Of User Resistance In Healthcare It, Madison Ngafeeson, Vishal Midha

Journal Articles

The US healthcare system is clearly experiencing a major transition. By 2015, the healthcare sector is expected to have migrated from a paper record system to a completely electronic health record (EHR) system. The adoption and use of these systems are expected to increase legibility, reduce costs, limit medical errors and improve the overall quality of healthcare. Hence, the US government is investing $70 billion over a 10-year period to facilitate the transition to an electronic system. However, early reports show that physicians and nurses among other health professionals continue to resist the full use of the system. This paper ...

Editorial Comment: Temporal Trends In Preparedness Capacity, Gulzar H. Shah Dr. 2014 University of Kentucky

Editorial Comment: Temporal Trends In Preparedness Capacity, Gulzar H. Shah Dr.

Frontiers in Public Health Services and Systems Research

In view of the critical role local health departments (LHDs) play among agencies responsible for responding to natural and man-made emergencies, Bevc et al. examined the LHDs’ emergency preparedness and capacity. They compared LHDs in North Carolina with those across the country for preparedness along eight domains. Significant declines in emergency preparedness were noted from 2010 to 2012 for five out of eight domains, raising questions about our national priority concerning this important function of public health agencies. These findings have numerous implications, some of which are covered in this commentary.

Medicare: The Perpetual Balance Between Performance And Preservation, Craig B. Garner 2014 Pepperdine University

Medicare: The Perpetual Balance Between Performance And Preservation, Craig B. Garner

Craig B. Garner

Passed by Congress and signed by President Lyndon Johnson into law in 1965, Medicare has weathered storms from all directions, growing to be the preeminent standard for health insurance in the United States. The idea of losing Medicare as a vital public benefit still remains the single greatest fear with which each passing generation of Americans must contend, and yet, these challenges over the past fifty years, designed to fortify Medicare’s foundation and ensure its longevity, continue to take a toll on the program.

The most recent climate of reform includes changes implemented by the Patient Protection and Affordable ...

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act aims to place public health and prevention practice closer to the clinical care delivery system by mandating basic preventive services and creating a national prevention plan. The Massachusetts health care system has a number of elements that can help foster closer linking of public health practices in the primary care setting. This research set out to examine whether the current healthcare system in Massachusetts will enable public health and primary care integration as intimated upon by the Affordable Care Act. This study will assess the current connection between public health and primary care ...


Implementing E-Health Through Chi: A Very Canadian Solution To A Very Canadian Problem, Tom Daniels 2014 McMaster University

Implementing E-Health Through Chi: A Very Canadian Solution To A Very Canadian Problem, Tom Daniels

Health Reform Observer - Observatoire des Réformes de Santé

Canada Health Infoway (CHI) was established as an arms-length body by the federal government in 2001 to provide funding to provinces for the development of interoperable e-health systems. CHI was established in response to a number of reports calling on the government to act to make use of technological advances to improve health care quality and provide more rigorous data. In addition to these explicit goals, through establishing CHI the federal government also sought to avoid potential criticism if the implementation of e-health failed, increase its own popularity ahead of the 2000 election and subtly redistribute wealth between the provinces ...

Health care delivery in the United States needs improvement. Each year about 98,000 people die as a result of medical errors and the United States is outranked by a number of developed countries in life expectancy, mortality and comorbidity. Healthcare quality is determined based on the quality of the service provided to the patient during their visit. Apart from the traditional problem solving design and development tools used to improve healthcare quality, The National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine recommend systems engineering principle and systems engineering tools to be used in health care to improve the ...


More Than A Diagnosis: Enabling Medical Students To Understand And Address The Patient’S Psychological Needs, Paige Jarmuz 2014 Syracuse University

More Than A Diagnosis: Enabling Medical Students To Understand And Address The Patient’S Psychological Needs, Paige Jarmuz

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

Patient-centered care is a framework for providing medical services in a humanistic, patient-focused manner. Although there are many proposed dimensions, it is simply the perspective of caring for the patient as a person with psychosocial needs, not just a diagnosis. Extensive literature review was completed to gain understanding of the application of patient-centered care in undergraduate medical education, as well as the evidence behind implementing patient-centered methods. Aspects of patient-centered care may be taught in many medical schools but their importance warrants a stronger focus. Incorporating aspects of patient- centered care is not only most ethical, but also is also ...
