Significance of the Health

Words: 1555 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 56901

Telemedicine: Possibilities and Issues

This is a paper regarding the use of communication technology in medicine and healthcare. The Issue is telemedicine, and the article related to is given in the reference.

The possibility, practicality and the desirability of the use of communication technologies are discussed and the issues in telemedicine identified. It is recommended that the issues be researched further and the implications, technical and medico legal sorted out side by side with the use of information and communication technologies in medicine.

The benefits of telemedicine can be enormous, and even save money in many cases, but there is also the potential for medico legal implications and the danger of excessive dependence on the machine rather than the man in the use of telemedicine. Overall, it is potentially a highly beneficial field provided it is driven by patient and healthcare needs rather than driven by the profit motive of…… [Read More]

Telehealth and Solving the Problem of Nursing Turnover

educing Nursing Turnover by Implementing Innovative E-Health: A New Strategy for Incentivizing Nurses and Improving Organizational Culture

Problem Identification:

Nursing turnover rates are a serious issue for hospitals: they are costly and result in lost time and energy in continuously training new staff (Twibell, 2012). Identifying the main reasons for nursing turnover and addressing them can lead to better nurse retention (Trivellas, Gerogiannis, Svarna, 2013).

The problem of nurse retention has been identified by academic scholars in journals like the Journal of Nursing Administration, which has estimated the cost of replacing a single nurse to be approximately $82,000 (Twibell, 2012). As Twibell (2012) reports, job satisfaction is the main reason new nurses leave and the poor sense of job satisfaction is related to too heavy workloads and the lack of their ability to guarantee patient safety. While Twibell goes on to suggest that these issues can be addressed by implementing…… [Read More]

Nursing Change Project

The organization at focus in this nursing change project and the nursing managers in cohesion implemented an evidence-based nursing practice model in the health care organization. As noted in the work of Keele (nd) there has been several models that have provided contributions on the conceptual level to the implementation of evidence-based nursing. One of these models is the Stetler model (Stetler, 2001), also included is the Iowa model (Titler, et al., 2001), the John Hopkins Evidence-ased Practice Model (Newhouse, et al., 2007), the ACE Star Model (Stevens, 2004), the Caledonian Development Model (Tolson, ooth & Lowendes, 2008), and the Evidence-ased Practice Model for Staff Nurses (Reavy & Tavernier, 2008). (p.75) The model chosen by the organization and reported in this work in writing is most similar to the Evidence-ased Practice Model for Staff Nurses (Reavey & Tavernier, 2008).

Improving Diabetes Outcomes in Rural

Words: 2716 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 40685101

Because patients have an active role in their care plan and are in
more frequent contact with their healthcare provider, they gain a better
understanding of their condition and become more compliant in their care."
(Moore, 1) This speaks directly to the challenges in healthcare relating
to diabetes, which is a condition that can best be controlled through
effective personal lifestyle habits and a sound treatment of one's body.
Being able to take proper routine measures to monitor, medicate and treat
one's self can be facilitated through telehealth consultation, reducing the
need for travel and doctor visits for those who might be less mobile due to
age and infirmity.
The importance of reducing hospital visits for both cost to
healthcare and strain on the patient can be especially appealed to where
diabetes is concerned. The chronic nature of the condition and the related
ability of the patient to control certain…… [Read More]

Words: 1063 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 48110564

Technology and Healthcare

Demographics of the global community are rapidly changing so that each year there are more and more seniors within the population base. This has a profound implication on the healthcare system of many regions since a large number of elderly citizens will be spending their lives in the confines of their home, and some may have chronic illness that require continuous monitoring. Clinical telemedicine is one way to offer greater services to rural or homebound populations. Indeed, a variety of technological advances have made it possible to change the paradigm of healthcare. Clinical information systems, for instance, have expanded in scope and depth. Increased processor speeds and data storage devices have made it possible to collect more data than ever on the detailed encounters that make up the provider-patient care delivery process, and present it more effectively to a wider range of users. Healthcare monitoring is part…… [Read More]

Future Trends in Health Care

Words: 1964 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 7870122

Future Trends in Health Care

Direct communication with patients remains to be an obstacle in the quest of achieving effective patient-physician relationship. Nevertheless, e-communication with clients by use of websites, telephone, and e-mail has forced physicians to re-engineer their strategies of caring for patients. Access of online wellness and health information, home-based monitoring systems, online medical services, and web-based support teams have enabled patients to embrace added responsibilities for their health care. This study diagnoses how the Internet and other forms of electronic communication may be used as an external delivery source in communicating patient-specific information. This study also elucidates how distance delivery affects the delivery of health care coupled with the use of e-mails, telemedicine, and the electronic transfer of records in service delivery (Latifi, 2008).

Technology Integration Poses New Ethical Dilemmas for Healthcare

Imagine studying the effects of globalization on healthcare. What would one find from his or her research? Is there a possibility that policies need changed? How does this affect one's licensure? One will study in depth this trend and find ways to solve the issues that arise before it is too late.

Within the United States, "globalization of healthcare encompasses both exporting patients (medical tourism) and importing medical services (outsourcing)" (Herrick, 2007). This makes competition increase, which means that what happens in the U.S. could rival that of Japan; consequently, healthcare would have to improve their quality and provide patients with more choices (Herrick, 2007). Whatever the case, many tasks are getting outsourced to those in foreign countries (Herrick, 2007). This includes "long-distance collaboration-incorporating the services of foreign medical staff into the practice of American medical provides" (Herrick, 2007). One has to…… [Read More]

Marketing Plan for Hong Kong

Words: 3037 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 50082495

For instance, a study by the Harvard Team determined that fully 11 per cent of the lowest income group (with a monthly household income below U.S.$1,282) suffered from poor health compared with just 3 per cent of the highest income group (i.e., households with an income above U.S.$5,128) (amesh). As this author points out, the current approach to the delivery of healthcare services in Hong Kong has some definite strengths - as well as weaknesses -- that must be taken into account when formulating strategy for the future. In this regard, amesh emphasizes that, "Hong Kong's accessible and equitable health-care system has been achieved at a rather modest cost, and the concentration of public subsidies on in-patient care, which is expensive, has fostered a system that is both efficient and equitable. Centralized provision in public facilities reduces scope for supplier-induced demand and duplication of facilities, thus reducing overall costs" (p.…… [Read More]

" (Tyson, 1)

The participants in the program has responded universally in favor of the program and have described it as a way of gaining access to critical support services which are inaccessible due to age, travel restriction and disability. Though the Tyson article denotes that many participants in the program do require some adjustment time to become comfortable with the flow of videoconferencing, most have ultimately reported that the reduction in travel time has been an enormous assistance in removing barriers to counseling. In this particular program, a focus on relieving alcohol and drug addiction symptoms following rehabilitation in the remote rural regions of Montana would demonstrate the importance of having a more accessible mode of gaining such support services. (Tyson, 1)

Indeed, the Tyson article suggests that the counterpoint to providing these opportunities is the danger that such individuals are likely to lapse back into addiction. This is…… [Read More]

This 1996 Act was part of a Civil ights concern that as information became more electronically disseminated, it would lead to misuse of that information (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2010). Certainly, one of the benefits of electronic information is that on one hand it is available to a larger number of people, but it is also verifiable on who views that information at what time. This protection, though, is part of the ethics of individual rights. It has, however, affected scholarly research and the ability to perform retrospective, chart-based research and evaluations. One study, in fact, said that HIPAA managed rules led to a 73% decrease in patient accrual, triple the time recruiting patients, and tripling (at least) of mean recruiting costs (Wold and Bennett, 2005). However, despite the few incidents in which the regulation of this information is detrimental, most civil rights advocates praise the legislation…… [Read More]

Marketing Considerations

Marketing in the biotechnology industry is critically important. The basic path to market involves receiving regulatory approval for products. From there, marketing is conducted to physicians directly, necessitating a relatively large sales force. The presence of competing treatments necessitates significant investment marketing, compounded by the impact of the need to recoup the sunk costs associated with product development. In addition, marketing in the biotechnology industry is strictly regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA exerts tight control over marketing -- a firm is only allowed to promote products for approved uses. Off-label marketing -- defined as marketing a product for uses not approved by the FDA -- is prohibited and firms found guilty can be subject to significant fines.

An example, of the strong regulatory influence on marketing can be found in the approval that United received in July for Tyvaso. The product, already delayed multiple…… [Read More]

The Importance of the Initiation Phase in Project Management

For a project to be classified as successful it should be delivered on time, in budget, and to the correct specifications (Schwalbe, 2010). All stages of project management are important, but in a recent article published in the International Journal of Healthcare Information Systems and Informatics Leouge, Tulu, & Wood (2014) argue that the initiation stage of the project is the most important state. In their article titled "Project Initiation for Telemedicine Services," the authors study the initiation of telemedicine services, looking not only at the general important, arguing that a collaborative process is important during the initiation stage for telemedicine.

E Medicine and Telehealth Recommendations for Implementation

Words: 971 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 62090663

Telehealth ecommendation

E-medicine and Telehealth are ways of sharing medical information pertaining to patients through the use of electronic/digital communication portals. Various technologies enable health care providers to use these means -- from smart phones to email to virtual connections, Telehealth is bringing the 21st century to paient-provider relationships and helping more adequately and efficiently to facilitate the provider in meeting the individual needs of the patient (MayoClinic, 2015).

One way to meet these needs is through providing home care services that allow providers to support an alternative (more traditional) approach to health care via home visit services. Telehealth makes this possible as medical information can be accessed by the practitioner on the go and records virtually taken with one wherever one goes so that the patient does not have to be troubled to visit the clinic.

For this reason alone, investing in Telehealth can be worth it. The statistical…… [Read More]

Thus, one may claim that by means of technology, we have transformed our world (ITEA, 1996; ITEA, 2006). At present, all human activities are reliant on different machines with technological dominance being at a record level in the current era. For instance, automobiles have transformed how and where individuals live, and a colossal infrastructure encompassing roads, service stations, bridges, rules and insurance policies has developed.

telehealth lowers costs increases outcomes

Words: 3205 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 45787278

Telehealth / Telemedicine

The concept of telehealth holds that there are a range of medical services that can be delivered remotely. Some early telehealth might have been conducted over the phone, perhaps a patient calling to get an opinion of whether he/she needed to travel to the nearest medical facility or not. For people living in remote areas, this was important. Countries like Australia and Canada, almost by necessity, helped pioneer telehealth and the United States has similarly utilized the technique.

The concept of telehealth is like an umbrella, with many different things encompassed within its definition. These include online support groups, online health information, communication with health care providers, remote monitoring, and video or online doctor visits (Mayo Clinic, 2016).

Modern telecommunications have only accelerated the use of telehealth, but they have also broadened the scope of what can be accomplished using telehealth technology. For example, the use of…… [Read More]

Models for healthcare delivery are changing, the institutions that deliver it are transforming themselves or being transformed by the marketplace and of course information technology is helping to enable that transformation. Medical technology today is transforming the way healthcare is delivered, managed, and assessed, with a continued shift from the old record management to more of a data management system.

When rural patients are connected to a hospital network such as the Grinnell egional Medical Center, they are able to access high-quality physicians through some of the more advanced healthcare technology available, although this is not always possible in a local healthcare system with fewer physicians and less access to high-level technology.

Studies on humans discover the biology of disease and serve as foundation for developing therapies. Non-human or non-clinical studies advance therapies for clinical use or use in human disease. And translational research refers to appropriate product development for clinical use. Translational research looks into the identity, purity and potency of a drug product during early clinical trial (Mankoff et al.). Translating the knowledge derived from basic sciences into clinical research and treatments is the task of translational medicine (Nagappa 2006).

Although anonymous data collection is based on the assumption that if data is collected anonymously then it cannot be linked with any individual, and if data cannot be related to an individual then it poses no threats in terms of privacy. Thus, detailed privacy policies and safeguards for data are not seen as critical in this model. By collecting anonymous data, one may argue that a true minimum amount of personal data is being collected. However, ensuring complete anonymity remains both technically and practically difficult.

For example, mix zones and changing pseudonyms are used to maintain anonymity but it is also possible to break the anonymity and track a user in a mix zone. Pervasive computing, then, needs other, more robust means to minimize the amount of data collection. Moreover, there are usability and efficiency issues that arise with any of these approaches. Testing, for example, is typically done in a controlled environment under limited conditions. The effectiveness of many of these solutions, then, has not been adequately tested under typical, real-world, conditions. In a true pervasive computing environment, users will move extensively between different computing environments and will interact with various devices (e.g. starting from small portable hand held device to large wall sized displays), and applications. It is difficult to predict how privacy solutions will perform in a true user-environment under more typical conditions.

Thus, it will be necessary to find and incorporate a unique privacy model that accentuates both social and legal norms, while ensuring the technical ability to protect privacy.

Nursing Perspectives on Computerized Management Systems

For a community hospital with one hundred beds spread out over the usual number of departments and staffed by large numbers of individuals working in a variety of disciplines and teams, few things are more important than efficiency. Efficiency does not only mean moving fast, however, or accomplishing tasks in the shortest amount of time and with the fewest resources possible; it also means achieving high levels of accuracy and solid quality performance in all tasks and operations. There are a variety of tools that can help boost overall quality and efficiency in healthcare organizations and medical facilities, and developing technologies continue to provide more and more methods for achieving efficiency. This paper will examine computerized management systems generally and compare two specific alternatives for such systems, concluding with recommendations for adoption.

The article attempts to show how through good governance a healthcare provider can create a foundation of belter public health preparedness, including integration of the latest technologies including TeleCare, Telemedicine, Tele-Health and E-Health to their overall preparedness strategies. The most prevalent connections are on how to transform governance into more effective healthcare over the long-term. The article also shows that for the immediate, intermediate and long-term needs of healthcare preparedness to be met, there must be strong support from a governance standpoint for data accuracy and integrity across an entire healthcare system (Hickman, Smaltz, 2008). The continued focus on how to make public health preparedness a core part of the overall functioning of a healthcare provider is also defined from the standpoint of patient care roles and responsibilities.

The truth that electronics aid humanity may be a subject for debate. However, it must be noted that nothing else may beat your doubt on electronics but the fact that we can derive from others' experiences that the technological advances in electronics really assist man in sustaining his life and surviving from the weaknesses of our physical body. More so, we may derive such information from our relatives and friends who may have experienced recovering from diseases with the aid of advanced biomedic machines. or, you can also ask this question to yourself to provide a view on how effective do you really believe can technology that is applied in electronics help, assist, and aid humanity -- "Would you rather go for the old method and practices of medicine than how medicine is practice these days?"

Web conferencing, though it is a very effective tool has its own drawback. The lack of human element and the absence of nonverbal feedback, particularly when dealing with clients constitute the negative side of electronic communication.

The field of medicine is one that uses web conferencing to great success. Telemedicine success stories are a good indication of the useful application of web conferencing. Web Conferencing, for example allows physician assistants and nurses to consult physicians and experts pertaining to patients symptoms and start appropriate treatment method for patients in hospitals and health care units running in remote locations. Similarly educational institutions embrace the technology offering e-learning modules for students from geographically diverse areas.

In every component of its IMC marketing plan, Sony takes a customer-focused attitude. Each product is marketed in a carefully segmented fashion and designed to meet highly specific customer needs. Although one weakness of this approach is that the image of Sony is not 'integrated' as some of its competitors, in contrast to the minimalist design of Apple which is consistent throughout Apple's entire product line, Sony's marketing has the advantage of segmentation and flexibility in a diverse marketplace.

Improving Local Health Care:

Quality health care is an important aspect in the modern health care system because of the necessity for quality and safety improvement measures. This concept is described as the extent in which health care services for patients and populations enhance the possibility of desired health outcomes. These services also need to be consistent with the existing professional knowledge in the field. Consequently, quality and improved care services are determined through evaluating the impact of these services on desired outcomes and the extent they adhere to procedures based on scientific and professional knowledge. As part of improving health care services, health care systems should adopt several process-improvement strategies. These strategies should recognize ineffective care, inefficiencies, and avoidable errors and then effect changes on the system to result in improved care.

In past ten years, the accessibility to information and capabilities has increased; thus, the technology of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) has increased drastically. The defence department of many countries need to take actions in order to prevent the chances of any attack (Graham, 2004).

During Cold war, the usage of nuclear weapons cause massive destruction that was faced by the innocent people of the countries, this is why weapons of mass destruction are taken as great threats. For the security of the people and the environment, the massive growth of destructive weapons should be slowed otherwise soon the individuals would get the opportunity to harm the entire nation. Such destructive powers reside with nation states, which are politically, economically, industrially and socially very strong (Graham, 2004).

Healthcare -- Administration and Legal

Many vectors -- science, research funding, social acceptance or rejection -- influence how and whether medical technology is eventually adopted into medical praxis (Hogle, et al., 2012). Undergirding the choices and changes is a shared body of ethical standards and law, the establishment of which is often not consensual or efficacious. Any emerging technology can encounter unanticipated social resistance and ethical concerns that can change the course of how medical science research progresses (Hogle, et al., 2012). Medical technology often poses questions about access to expensive innovations and considerations about race, gender, and social justice that are inseparable from the socio-economic levels of patients (Hogle, et al., 2012).
