Hospitals Use Tablets as Extension of EHRs

Hospitals Use Tablets as Extension of EHRs | Free to Express | Scoop.it

Some leading hospitals are increasingly turning to tablets -- iPads and iPad-like devices -- as a way to improve access to patient health records for providers walking the hospital halls.

 

Such devices are seen as a way to work around clunky desktops and make greater use of an electronic medical record's (EMR) capabilities.

"Tablets, in our experience, are very effective if you need not the entire EMR, but a slice of information," Will Morris, MD, associate chief medical information officer at the Cleveland Clinic, told MedPage Today.

 

The hospital is piloting the use of tablets with a few sectors of its workforce, such as its rapid response teams. Clinicians can look up patient information on their way to a patient who is crashing and better know how to treat the patient when they arrive at their room.

Other hospital staff use them on rounds; data entered is synced with the hospital's full EMR.

 

"The more we can assist our providers in being more efficient, the better the value proposition," Morris said.

 

Hospitals are increasingly turning to mobile devices as a cost-effective extension of their EMRs, making them more usable and friendly, David Collins, senior director of mHIMSS, the mobile wing of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), in Chicago, said.

 

"You spend millions of dollars for EHR [electronic health record] implementation," Collins toldMedPage Today in a phone interview. "But if you can spend $300 on a tablet and issue these to providers so they're more mobile, it's really a minimal cost for the payoff."

 

At the Cleveland Clinic, officials don't have data on quality improvement just yet, but Morris said they have seen an improvement in how long it takes nurses to enter vital signs.

 

"It's not going to be the tablet that transforms practice," he said. "It's going to be 'How do you use the data coming out of your EMR, applied with clinical rules, to empower the clinical practice?' "

 This is an excellent example as to how people are practicing theyre constitutional rights today, it shows people effectivley fighting for the rights they are entitled to. While the problem was resolved by the US Supreme Court, a handfull of cities were prohibiting the distrubution of leaflets and flyers which is a direct violation of the I amendment. I do not think this should be taken away from anyone, freedom of speech is one of the ideals that America was founded on and everybody deserves.

Passing a shield law would give the govt power to determine who has right to free speech

Passing a shield law would give the govt power to determine who has right to free speech | Free to Express | Scoop.it
With the discovery that the Department of Justice had secretly obtained phone records from the Associated Press, members of Congress have suggested enacting a shield law for the media.

 

A shield law would open the door to more government abuse of power. In the last few years, the executive branch has attempted to dismantle the rule of law by unilaterally deciding which laws to enforce and which to ignore. If the federal government were to seize the ability to determine which rights the American people can exercise and which rights they cannot, the American way of life would cease to exist.
What is truly disheartening, is that this subject matter should not even be needing to be discussed in Congress or anywhere else. The Constitution guarantees everyone the freedom of speech ,and the freedom of the press.
Any American has the right to print, broadcast or make any statement they wish. The reason congress is talking about a shield law is because it will give them another way to infringe on our rights.
Passing a shield law would give the government the power to determine whether certain types of speech were acceptable as media or unacceptable because it wasn’t in line with the narrative of the day. The shield law is designed to give the politicians a shield from criticism by giving them the authority to define speech in a way that protects them.

I think that this article is very important. It talks about a shield law that would "protect" politicians from criticism. Something interesting about this though is that the government could easily abuse this by determining which rights that the americans could use. They could determine certain types of speech unacceptable. I honestly don't agree with this law because we the people have the freedom to speech.

Joe Blauw's comment, October 3, 2013 10:57 AM
If people are afraid of being criticized for something by the people then they should re think what they're doing. Not make a law against criticism.

This article talks about a shield law. There has been a discovery that the government hacked into phone records and members of congress have suggested enacting a shield law.

“A UNCW English professor posted nude pictures of under-aged girls as part of an ‘art exhibit’ in the university library. The Provost then ordered the nude pictures to be moved away from the library and into the university union.” The incensed English professor asked the Faculty Senate to censure the Provost for violating her ‘academic freedom.’ The Faculty Senate sided with the feminist professor. The Provost was later pressured to leave the university.”

Freedom of speech

Freedom of speech | Free to Express | Scoop.it

Freedom is the main weapon of a man who no one has the right to take it away. The law states that every citizen has the right to express their point of view. But alas, not only journalists but also to bloggers who write the truth, show the flaws of society are being arrested, killed or threatened. This kind is a clear proof that freedom of speech is still missing. Nobody wants to be with the law. everyone does his job as he pleases and in the end, those who identify flaws of society are victims of government officials, and the wicked continue to do its evil. And that freedom of speech loses its significance and gradually coming to the stage of extinction.

I couldn't agree more. As a matter of fact, a question was asked in one of my college courses that had me up in flames. The question read "Should the 1st Amendment be revised to fit today's society?" In other words, is it outdated? My answer was of course No! This is what our founding fathers have based this Country on, and today's society has turned into a bunch of slobs! There is no need to "revise" anything. However we should be following it more! Maybe this would take care of some of the issues we see today?

How Texting Is Changing Your Grammar [Infographic]

How Texting Is Changing Your Grammar [Infographic] | Free to Express | Scoop.it

From OMG to LOL, there’s no denying that texting has changed the way we communicate with each other. Look no further than the fact that you don’t need clarification of what OMG or LOL means as proof that our written communication is evolving.

 

Though acronyms aren’t a new part of our language (the military has used them for years), the way we are using them in daily conversation with each other is a relatively new phenomenon. It’s safe to say that a new language has been born: text talk. This language is so widely used that it’s now infiltrating everyday life.
