Why Students Should Learn to Write for the Public

Why Students Should Learn to Write for the Public | Healthcare Education & Technology | Scoop.it

Rather than having them write a paper and hand it in only for the teacher to read, waiting for some kind of assessment, Jimenez offers a different perspective in this interview with the Atlantic at the Aspen Ideas Festival: “Writing should be public, it should give a sense of urgency and visibility… for students to feel that their writing has a voice in the world.”

Social Networks Influence Personal Health Decisions

Social Networks Influence Personal Health Decisions | Healthcare Education & Technology | Scoop.it
Researchers from the University of Southern California recently found that social networks can stimulate changes in the health behavior of individuals.

 

Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are just a few of the social media networks that have become popular in the past few years. Social media networks allow individuals to share photos, stories, video, and other forms of communication with friends and family. Investigators have studied how social media has become integrated in people’s daily lives. In particular, researchers from the University of Southern California (USC) recently found that social networks can stimulate changes in the health behavior of individuals.

 

With the project, the team of public health researchers was inspired to study the “science” behind social influence. They believe that an understanding of online and face-to-face interactions can improve disease prevention and help promote public health issues. The researchers concluded that it is necessary to understand a group’s social structure and social dynamics to understand the factors that influence a group member’s decision making.

4 Reasons why mHealth will be the new normal in Healthcare

4 Reasons why mHealth will be the new normal in Healthcare | Healthcare Education & Technology | Scoop.it
While many people feel the move to mobile health may be simply a fad, I believe it will become the new normal in healthcare. Here’s why:

 

#1 Hospitals are all about motion


Have you ever been to a hospital where everyone and everything wasn’t in constant motion? Patients, clinicians and equipment; everything is always on the move and in a hurry! But for the past few decades, we have designed technologies that require the user to sit and type at a workstation. At rest is not the natural state of a hospital. It also radically alters the natural workflows of everyone who must use these tethered systems. Mobile Health is the natural solution to this problem. It allows clinicians, clerks, maintenance, housekeeping and everyone else to stay on the move and still leverage all the benefits of technology.

 

#2 Physicians and nurses are in short supply


So is their time. It’s important to ensure that their time and efforts are maximized. Giving them the tools they need to care for more patients and provide better quality care is the key. Why is this important? Retention. While these have always been stressful occupations, the past several years have placed a greater and greater burden on fewer and fewer people in these roles. Making their workday more satisfying and less stressful benefits everyone.

 

#3 Patient engagement


The opportunities presented with mobile Health to innovate and re-imagine patient engagement not only between clinician and patient but also between the patient and their own health data is unprecedented. Home care, remote patient monitoring, adherence, tele-medicine, PHRs, prescribed apps, the list of opportunities is endless.

 

#4 Time


Untethering nurses from the nursing station allows them to spend more time providing quality and personal care at the bedside. Delivering results directly to clinicians via mobile devices may save critical time delays for providing a diagnosis to save a life. Mobile Health when implemented correctly should provide a return on time that can be invested in care. Speeding up technology allows clinicians to slow down, think, communicate and engage more often and more effectively.

EHRs improve handoffs, care coordination in post-acute settings

EHRs improve handoffs, care coordination in post-acute settings | Healthcare Education & Technology | Scoop.it

Although long term and post acute providers are not part of the Meaningful Use program, their use of electronic health records help improve care transitions of patients, according to health IT expert Bill Russell, M.D., as reported in McKnight's Long Term Care News.

 

Russell, in a release reflecting on a presentation he gave at the American Health Information Management Association's annual Long Term Care and Post Acute Providers Health IT Summit in Baltimore, noted that EHRs can help acute and post acute providers work together and coordinate care.

 

Poor patient care transitions are a major concern and a frequent cause of hospital readmissions and longer length of stays. EHRs can standardize much of the communication among providers. Both care coordination and interoperability among different provider types are building blocks for Stage 2 of Meaningful Use.

The Use of Patient Pictures and Verification Screens to Reduce Computerized Provider Order Entry Errors

The incorporation of patient pictures within a computerized order entry verification process is an effective strategy for reducing the risk that erroneous placement of orders in a patient’s EMR will result in unintended care being provided to an incorrect patient.

 

We describe several changes to the EMR/provider interface and ordering workflow that were implemented as one part of a hospital-wide quality improvement effort to improve patient identification and verification practices. We measured the impact by comparing the number of reported incidents of care being provided to any patient other than for whom it was intended before the intervention, and directly after the intervention.

Three Things to Unlearn About Learning | Healthcare Education & Technology | Scoop.it

"If you’re not feeling uncomfortable about the state of education right now, then you’re not paying attention to the pressures and challenges of technology,” said Will Richardson, a veteran educator author and consultant, at a talk at ISTE 2012. “We need to acknowledge that this is a very interesting moment, and even though in a lot of ways this isn’t what we signed up for when we went into teaching… as educators, it’s our job to figure it out.”

Health technology and patient-centered principles shown to improve care

Using both patient-centered care principles and health information technology improves care, according to the bulk of evidence published during the last 14 years.

 

Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University Evidence-Based Practice Center reviewed 327 published articles examining results of health IT tools used in implementing patient-centered care. The studies looked at health outcomes for patients with a range of health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, depression and cancer. The review was limited to research published in 1998 or later.
