I visited Boca Regional Employee Work Care Clinic and they use the alphabetic file system. The files are filed by employees who have visited in the past last name, first name, middle name, and Prefixes. The equipment that is use is a motorized rotary storage which require supplies such as a guide, folders, and labels. I suggested that they upgraded to an electronic filing system because I notice the long wait for patients to be seen and sometimes they come on their lunch break. Updating to an electronic filing system will create more room and less bulkiness around the office, a less time consuming system for retrieval and refiling files, prevent having duplicate and missing files and lastly elimates maintence cost on the motorize rotary

Case Managers have a challenging job, often dealing with patients, community agencies and facilitating their hospital discharge to the next level of care. They collaborate and communicate with the entire healthcare team and mostly with the patient during the hospitalization process. They act as support for all stakeholders to achieve positive patient outcomes. In this paper, I will be interviewing Ian Mopas, who is a Patient Care Coordinator at Kaiser Permanente in Redwood City about his education, work training, goals, and objectives as a Care Coordinator, and his responsibilities in his organization.
Human Resources Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) is a program that was created to help America build a health care workforce. The Bureau of Health Workforce is eager to improve the public health by expanding access to quality health services and working to achieve health equity (“Bureau of Health Workforce”). May 2014 was the month and year HRSA was created (“Bureau of Health Workforce”). The Bureau of Health Workforce was developed through the department of Health and Human Services. The Bureau of Health Workforce combines programs that were already administered through the Bureau of Health Professions and the Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service “Bureau of Health Workforce”.
The scenario for this assignment has asked me as a health care employee to provide information on electronic health records. The information I include should provide positive and effective feedback to convince the medical management staff to switch their current record filing system which happens to be paper records to electronic filing.
The Medical Record Management System your office implements is only as good as the ease of
One way a filing system is created is by using the computers server on the network in which employees have access to the employees will create new folders for client files, this means that every time a new company partners up with the business i.e. for a potential deal, a new folder will be made in the company’s name under client files on the networks drive for the company’s relevant documents that will be stored here. By clicking into this it gives an A-Z list of folders of all the clients the business has worked with, we can the click into the folder and store or retrieve relevant information about the company such information might include documents based on whether the company is credit checked etc, this makes it easier to locate information in the future as it has been stored specifically in a file in which we will know where to retrieve this from when the relevant documents are needed in the
Unfortunately, with five medication aides and two managers all doing filing, records often get misplaced, whether they are put in the wrong section of the expand-a-file, filed under the wrong section of a resident’s binder or accidently get deposited into the secure shredding container. The implementation of a new health documentation system would be a marked improvement to the current system.
Operational electronic health record systems (EHR) can provide the information necessary on demand, short of troublesome trial and error of probing around physical files. From the first steps of designing the system, the enquiries that will follow are predicted and accommodated. Similar to an office filing system, the appropriateness of a detailed patient record system is often adjudicated by how much time and effort are necessary to locate and recover data. Thus, an intimate cog of the design of an electronic health record system is its efficient process for access, retrieval, and reporting.
As part of an ongoing effort to improve access to healthcare in rural areas, WeCARE Family Clinic are proposing the start-up of our new family medicine practice in Plains, Georgia. The business will be owned and managed by myself, Dr. Ieshia O. Roberts, MD as a sole proprietorship. I will be responsible for ensuring the general health of my patients and creating a viable and profitable medical practice. Throughout the year, my staff and I will work closely with advisors from Phoebe-Sumter Medical Center to get the clinic on a sound financial and operational footing, using this medical clinic business plan as a guiding management tool.
The intervention begins with Dayspring providing health screening exercises for client’s employees for them to understand the common health issues and needs they may face. From then on, Dayspring liaises with the Human Resource (HR) in-charge to propose suitable recommendations and plan various health talk packages and activities to take up based on the overall health report results and needs of their employees. This is to better cater to the health needs and provide effective health programmes for clients. The HR in-charge is responsible for informing his or her employees about the upcoming health programme details and encouraging participation. This is done via different platforms such as email, posters, mass announcements, etc (Jolyn Wong,
Thanks to technology, the human service field could become more efficient. Electronic filing of client or patient information puts the information at the fingertips of all involved in the care of each individual. Before computers, client or patient files were hard paper copies that only one person could have access to at a time within one office unless a copy of this file was made for each professional involved in his or her case. Technology changed this by someone creating software, which stores all information on the client or patient. The case manager can have access to
The electronic health record came about because of a disaster that wiped out a facilities entire medical record department. The facility only had paper documents, and with the disaster
I believe this trend is the future. Sooner or later everything in hospitals and private offices of doctors, dentist, chiropractors, etc., will be paperless. Every single patient file, x-rays, etc., will be on computers and hard drives will keep those files backed up so if anything was to happen to those files, they will be restored easily. Billing will be made easily and payments will be brought in faster than usual. Pre-authorizations will come in faster than the usual wait time. It will only
During face to face interviews with WIC employees in the state of Mississippi, there seems to be a consensus. Many mothers will faithfully pick up food packages until the child no longer needs formula. One of the biggest complaints seems to be the recertification process. Three months later the parent has to take another day off work if employed to return to the clinic for a 10-minute nutrition education class to remain eligible to participate in the program. During face to face interviews with nutritional staff person discussed that there are income guide lines as well as there have to be risk factors in place for a recipient to qualify for WIC. Children can participate until their fifth birthday month, but many will not because the parents
Papers based systems work but are time consuming. The paperwork burden in hospitals is obvious. Unlike just about every other industry, health care still relies on an old-fashioned paper/fax/phone transaction process. These paper based systems
