Improving The Patient Experience Through Patient Portals: Insights From Experienced Portal Users, Cynthia J. Sieck, Jennifer L. Hefner, Ann Scheck McAlearney 2018 The Ohio State University

Improving The Patient Experience Through Patient Portals: Insights From Experienced Portal Users, Cynthia J. Sieck, Jennifer L. Hefner, Ann Scheck Mcalearney

Patient Experience Journal

Background: Patient portals have become part of the ecosystem of care as both patients and providers use them for a range of activities both individually and collaboratively. As patients and providers gain greater experience using portals, their use and needs related to portals may evolve. Objective: This study aimed to learn from experienced patient portal users to improve our understanding of their perspectives on portal use for collaboration and engagement as well as explore how using a portal influenced their experiences with primary care providers. Methods: Qualitative study involving 29 semi-structured interviews with family medicine patients from a large Academic ...


Transforming Care Through Bedside Leader Rounding: Use Of Handheld Technology Leads To Improvement In Perceived Patient Satisfaction, Alison Tothy, Sunitha K. Sastry, Mary K. Springman, Heather M. Limper, John Fahrenbach, Susan M. Murphy 2018 University of Chicago

Transforming Care Through Bedside Leader Rounding: Use Of Handheld Technology Leads To Improvement In Perceived Patient Satisfaction, Alison Tothy, Sunitha K. Sastry, Mary K. Springman, Heather M. Limper, John Fahrenbach, Susan M. Murphy

Patient Experience Journal

When consistently executed, leader rounding has the ability to capture actionable information ensuring delivery of safe and effective patient care, identifying excellence among staff, and bringing opportunities for improvement. Our team set out to create an effective, standardized approach to targeted, daily, technology-driven leader rounding with the goal of integrating real-time patient feedback into the care experience. An application on handheld computer tablets was tailored and integrated with the hospital’s admission, discharge, and transfer (ADT) feed, allowing for streamlining of the rounding process by creation of workflow templates. Additionally, capabilities to receive and send alerts across disciplines were integrated ...

Can Specific Feedback Improve Patients’ Satisfaction With Hospitalist Physicians? A Feasibility Study Using A Validated Tool To Assess Inpatient Satisfaction, Sarah E. Richards, Rachel Thompson, Steven Paulmeyer, Ashvita Garg, Sarah Malik, Kristy Carlson, Elizabeth Lyden, Jason Shiffermiller

Patient Experience Journal

The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) is a patient satisfaction survey utilized for hospital reimbursement calculations. It is not, however, considered a valid measure of individual physician performance. The object of this study was to determine if the “Tool to Assess Inpatient Satisfaction with Care from Hospitalists” (TAISCH) instrument could be leveraged to improve patient satisfaction. A pragmatic pre/post study was conducted with adult inpatients admitted to either teaching or non-teaching general internal medicine services at a large mid-western academic medical center. TAISCH surveys were administered to patients (n=192) who were able to identify ...


Developing The First Pan-Canadian Acute Care Patient Experiences Survey, Salima Hadibhai, Jeanie Lacroix, Kira Leeb 2018 Canadian Institute for Health Information

Developing The First Pan-Canadian Acute Care Patient Experiences Survey, Salima Hadibhai, Jeanie Lacroix, Kira Leeb

Patient Experience Journal

The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) in partnership with stakeholders sought to develop the first pan-Canadian patient experiences survey for inpatient care (CPES-IC). The goal was to provide a national survey standard for comparative patient experience measures to facilitate benchmarking for quality improvement. A cognitive and pilot testing study design was performed using survey data from adult inpatient care settings. Participants included the inter-jurisdictional members (IJ), survey subject matter experts and CIHI (The Group). Cognitive testing of the survey took place in three Canadian jurisdictions in English and French languages. Thirty-nine individuals participated in one-on-one interviews. During pilot testing ...


Standardising The Collection Of Patient-Reported Experience Measures To Facilitate Benchmarking And Drive Service Improvement, Kathleen L. Withers, Sarah Puntoni, Susan O'Connell, Robert I. Palmer, Grace Carolan-Rees 2018 Cardiff & Vale UHB

Standardising The Collection Of Patient-Reported Experience Measures To Facilitate Benchmarking And Drive Service Improvement, Kathleen L. Withers, Sarah Puntoni, Susan O'Connell, Robert I. Palmer, Grace Carolan-Rees

Patient Experience Journal

Patient experience teams in NHS Wales’ Health Boards and Trusts are working across the country to collect patient experience feedback from members of the public who access health care services. Although this work is advanced in many areas, there is currently no way of benchmarking across organisations, reducing opportunities for shared learning. We aimed to work with patients and colleagues across Wales to agree a set of universal Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) questions. Working with patient experience teams, patient groups and Welsh Government, the NHS Wales Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) and Effectiveness Programme ...


First, Do No Harm: The Patient's Experience Of Avoidable Suffering As Harm, Ashley Bauer MHA 2018 TriStar Health

First, Do No Harm: The Patient's Experience Of Avoidable Suffering As Harm, Ashley Bauer Mha

Patient Experience Journal

Although my entire career has been spent in Patient Experience, nothing I have learned from data, evidence-based practice, or experience-based correlations, has been near as impactful as what I learned from being a patient. This article discusses my own experiences as a patient. I ask readers to consider instances of avoidable suffering as sources of harm that negatively impact patient perceptions, erode trust in care providers and healthcare delivery systems, and create barriers to engaging patients in their care. Recognizing how avoidable suffering creates harm challenges traditional views of Patient Experience as hospitality-based “soft skills” and helps to establish patient ...


Patient Partner Compensation In Research And Health Care: The Patient Perspective On Why And How, Dawn P. Richards, Isabel Jordan, Kimberly Strain, Zal Press 2018 Five02 Labs and the Canadian Arthritis Patient Alliance

Patient Partner Compensation In Research And Health Care: The Patient Perspective On Why And How, Dawn P. Richards, Isabel Jordan, Kimberly Strain, Zal Press

Patient Experience Journal

As patient and family engagement activity broadens across the continuum of care and expands around the world, the question of compensation for an increasingly competent advisory community continues to come up. The authors are 4 patients who are highly active in patient and public involvement initiatives internationally. Through our exclusive patient perspective, we provide insight into the reasoning and motivation that many patients are now awakening to as to why lived experience is a value that organizations need to recognize and support in concrete ways. We explore the core principles that an organization needs to consider and adopt when developing ...


Elevating The Discourse On Experience In Healthcare’S Uncertain Times, Jason A. Wolf PhD, CPXP 2018 The Beryl Institute / Patient Experience Journal

Elevating The Discourse On Experience In Healthcare’S Uncertain Times, Jason A. Wolf Phd, Cpxp

Patient Experience Journal

Over the last five years, we have been inspired by the breadth of contributions that have helped shape the experience landscape through PXJ as well as the reach that the conversation on patient experience has had. Both the authors and readers of PXJ reinforce that the conversation on patient experience and the human experience in healthcare is not one dominated by national intent or even policy. While for some motivation has come in some part from mandated action, for most tackling this idea in healthcare is it grounded in two core realities. The first, in healthcare at its core we ...

Cultural Competency Training: How Do We Measure Outcomes?, Timothy Lee, Sean Ervin Dr. 2018 Emory Healthcare

Cultural Competency Training: How Do We Measure Outcomes?, Timothy Lee, Sean Ervin Dr.

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

Background

The term “cultural competency” in healthcare is meant to convey an understanding of cultural and linguistic differences that exist within and between distinct social groups and a sensitivity to these differences that may allow for improved health care outcomes to occur. The medical literature has validated the importance of cultural competency training to medical education and its possible influence on patient health status and outcomes. Many pre-licensure cultural competency training programs have emerged due to the perceived benefits for healthcare delivery and outcomes. However, few studies have evaluated the clinical impact and success of these training programs. In this ...

Orotic Aciduria, Aliah L. Fonteh 2018 Liberty University

Orotic Aciduria, Aliah L. Fonteh

Fidei et Veritatis: The Liberty University Journal of Graduate Research

Orotic acid is an intermediate found in the pathway for pyrimidine synthesis. The mitochondrial enzyme dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH) catalyzes the production of orotic acid by the conversion of the compound dihydroorotate to orotic acid. Orotic acid is commonly produced by this reaction in erythrocytes, hepatocytes, and kidney cells. Chemical modification of orotic acid in the pyrimidine pathway will generate nucleotides involved in DNA and RNA synthesis. Orotic aciduria can occur as a secondary manifestation due to a defect in an enzyme or transporter within the urea cycle, due to competitive inhibition by anti-cancer drugs such as allopurinol and 6-azauridine, or ...


Use Of Hearing Protection In Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Patients: A Systematic Review Of The Evidence, Nathalie Chouery, Kathleen T. Dunckley 2018 Rush University

Use Of Hearing Protection In Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Patients: A Systematic Review Of The Evidence, Nathalie Chouery, Kathleen T. Dunckley

Journal of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention

Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) settings present neonates with many environmental hazards, including exposure to dangerous sound intensity levels. Noise levels in NICUs worldwide overwhelmingly exceed the recommendations for safe exposure by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Environmental modifications and staff behavioral changes have proved ineffective to sufficiently reduce infant noise exposure. A systematic review of the literature was undertaken to answer if earmuffs improves physiologic stability, behavioral response, and sleep behavior, which are markers of stress response in NICU patients. Seven databases were searched for pertinent records using a specific search protocol. Seven studies met the review’s inclusion ...

Hispanic Parents’ Beliefs, Attitudes And Perceptions Toward Pediatric Hearing Loss: A Comprehensive Literature Review, Ana Caballero, Karen F. Munoz, Jared Schultz, Laurel Graham, Alex Meibos

Journal of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention

Objective: The purpose of this review was two-fold: (a) to understand research findings about Hispanic parents’ beliefs, attitudes, and perceptions related to hearing loss after having children who are deaf or hard of hearing, and (b) to inform future research needs that could expand audiologists’ ability to provide patient-centered care with this population.

Design: A comprehensive review of the literature was used to identify relevant articles for the review.

Study Sample: Five research articles met the inclusion criteria.

Results: Three primary themes emerged: (1) deafness causality, parents tended to describe the cause of the hearing loss in terms of religion ...
