This book is the third in our series describing patient-centered methodologies (PCM). It focuses on both the curative potential and the successful curative impact of medical interventions. It introduces an assessment procedure through which the curative impact of some particular medical intervention against a progressive and potentially fatal disease such as cancer may be ascertained.The assessment procedure’s conclusions are probabilistic in nature. They are generated on an individually tailored, patient-by-patient basis. The curative efficacy of a medical intervention is calculated as a time-phased probability for each separate patient. The intervention’s overall curative efficacy is also calculated, probabilistically, for a given patient population.Suppose that a patient is diagnosed with some form of cancer. Suppose, further, that the patient undergoes a medical intervention known to possess some curative potential, but not guaranteed to cure everybody. For how long after the intervention must that patient wait with no evidence of further disease progression before concluding that the intervention was successful? How much time must elapse with no evidence of disease before concluding that the cancer has been beaten and, therefore, that the patient was cured? The assessment procedure introduced in this book attempts to answer precisely this question.Patient-centered diagnosis, prognosis, and cure assessment all rely on a methodology that generates individually tailored pro...

In the current era of health care reform, our predominantly clinician-centered approaches stand in the way of real system transformation. What could happen if clinicians instead incorporated their patient's story into their appraisal and treatment planning? This document examines such an approach. In order to look more closely at how this could be accomplished in a contemporary primary care clinic, a small test of change was undertaken. Nurses were trained in patient-centered narrative interviewing in order to gather information typically difficult to obtain using a standard medical interviewing format. These nurses were next placed in a variety of healthcare sites. Primary care clinicians (PCCs) in these sites selected patients each clinician felt was frustrating or difficult. The clinician arranged for the nurse to interview these patients. After the interview, the nurse and the PCC discussed the new information provided. The PCC then determined if the information provided was valuable, whether it actually changed their clinical decision-making regarding that patient's diagnosis and treatment, and if their level of frustration with the patient improved.

Partnering for Recovery in Mental Health is a practical guide for conducting person and family-centered recovery planning with individuals with serious mental illnesses and their families. It is derived from the authors’ extensive experience in articulating and implementing recovery-oriented practice and has been tested with roughly 3,000 providers who work in the field as well as with numerous post-graduate trainees in psychology, social work, nursing, and psychiatric rehabilitation. It has consistently received highly favorable evaluations from health care professionals as well as people in recovery from mental illness. This guide represents a new clinical approach to the planning and delivery of mental health care. It emerges from the mental health recovery movement, and has been developed in the process of the efforts to transform systems of care at the local, regional, and national levels to a recovery orientation. It will be an extremely useful tool for planning care within the context of current health care reform efforts and increasingly useful in the future, as systems of care become more person-centered. Consistent with other patient-centered care planning approaches, this book adapts this process specifically to meet the needs of persons with serious mental illnesses and their families. Partnering for Recovery in Mental Health is an invaluable guide for any person involved directly or indirectly in the provision, monitoring, evaluation, or use of community-based mental health care.

In The Patient Revolution, author Krisa Tailor—a noted expert in health care innovation and management—explores, through the lens of design thinking, how information technology will take health care into the experience economy. In the experience economy, patients will shift to being empowered consumers who are active participants in their own care. Tailor explores this shift by creating a vision for a newly designed health care system that's focused on both sickness and wellness, and is driven by data and analytics. The new system seamlessly integrates health into our daily lives, and delivers care so uniquely personalized that no two people are provided identical treatments. Connected through data, everyone across the health care ecosystem, including clinicians, insurers, and researchers, will be able to meet individuals wherever they are in their health journey to reach the ultimate goal of keeping people healthy. The patient revolution has just begun and an exciting journey awaits us. Praise for the patient revolution «A full 50% of the US population has at least one chronic disease that requires ongoing monitoring and treatment. Our current health care system is woefully inadequate in providing these individuals with the treatment and support they need. This disparity can only be addressed through empowering patients to better care for themselves and giving providers better tools to care for their patients. Both of those solutions will require the development and application of novel technologies. In Krisa Tailor's book The Patient Revolution, a blueprint is articulated for how this could be achieved, culminating in a vision for a learning health system within 10 years.» —Ricky Bloomfield, MD, Director, Mobile Technology Strategy; Assistant Professor, Duke Medicine «In The Patient Revolution, Krisa Tailor astutely points out that 80% of health is impacted by factors outside of the health care system. Amazon unfortunately knows more about our patients than we do. The prescriptive analytics she describes will allow health care providers to use big data to optimize interventions at the level of the individual patient. The use of analytics will allow providers to improve quality, shape care coordination, and contain costs. Advanced analytics will lead to personalized care and ultimately empowered patients!» —Linda Butler, MD, Vice President of Medical Affairs/Chief Medical Officer/Chief Medical Information Officer, Rex Healthcare «The Patient Revolution provides a practical roadmap on how the industry can capture value by making health and care more personalized, anticipatory, and intuitive to patient needs.» —Ash Damle, CEO, Lumiata «Excellent read. For me, health care represents a unique economy—one focused on technology, but requiring a deep understanding of humanity. Ms. Tailor begins the exploration of how we provide care via the concepts of design thinking, asking how we might redesign care with an eye toward changing the experience. She does an excellent job deconstructing this from the patient experience. I look forward to a hopeful follow-up directed at changing the provider culture.» —Alan Pitt, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Avizia «Whether you're a health care provider looking to gain an understanding of the health care landscape, a health data scientist, or a seasoned business pro, you'll come away with a deeper, nuanced understanding of today's evolving health care system with this book. Krisa Tailor ties together—in a comprehensive, unique way—the worlds of health care administration, clinical practice, design thinking, and business strategy and innovation.» —Steven Chan, MD, MBA, University of California, Davis

3802 руб.
Since the introduction of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965, the American health care system has steadily grown in size and complexity. Muriel R. Gillick takes readers on a narrative tour of American health care, incorporating the stories of older patients as they travel from the doctor's office to the hospital to the skilled nursing facility, and examining the influence of forces as diverse as pharmaceutical corporations, device manufacturers, and health insurance companies on their experience. A scholar who has practiced medicine for over thirty years, Gillick offers readers an informed and straightforward view of health care from the ground up, revealing that many crucial medical decisions are based not on what is best for the patient but rather on outside forces, sometimes to the detriment of patient health and quality of life. Gillick suggests a broadly imagined patient-centered reform of the health care system with Medicare as the engine of change, a transformation that would be mediated through accountability, cost-effectiveness, and culture change.

Stewart Mercer ABC of Multimorbidity

2785.61 руб.
ABC of Multimorbidity is the first title to provide primary care practitioners with a practical approach to the complex issues of treating and managing patients with more than one morbidity. Ageing populations and earlier diagnosis of chronic conditions mean more people are living longer with multimorbidity. However, treatment guidelines are often designed for treatment in isolation of other morbidities. Multimorbidity management therefore requires a more patient centred approach and greater knowledge and coordination of existing services. Effective multimorbidity management both improves overall patient well-being and reduces the overall demand on health services. ABC of Multimorbidity examines how multimorbidities can be addressed within primary care, from the GP and family physician consultation through to the effective use of a range of health care services. It addresses complex issues such as polypharmacy, mental health, patient safety, patient involvement in self-management, and the role of the practitioner. It then provides guidance on how multimorbidities can be best treated and managed within primary care through specific interventions to improve outcomes. From an international, primary care editor and contributor team, ABC of Multimorbidity is a practical resource for general practitioners, family physicians, practice and specialist nurses, and others caring for multimorbid patients.

From more active patient engagement to establishing and maintaining collaborative patient and provider relations, practices/HCOs need to rethink their own added value strategies and how to best serve healthcare stakeholders including patients, patient caregivers, physicians and other providers. Consequentially, practices/HCOs will need to modify a variety of processes, strategies, and tools.

Patient safety is an important current issue, due to the negative repercussions that can occur when things go wrong in a medical setting. In their Third Annual Patient Safety in American Hospitals Report (2006), HealthGrades estimated that 304,702 people died from medical errors between 2002-2004. Organizational climate has been shown capable of influencing many different outcomes, including some critical to patient safety. There is a dearth of research specifically studying how climate factors for nurses in particular relate to patient safety outcomes, and the current effort helps to close that research gap.This study examined how climate factors relate to the patient safety outcome of medication errors. Quarterly attitude data from nurses in eight hospitals were aggregated to the organizational level of analysis to represent organizational climate. Accurate archival figures were used to measure medication errors. The results speak to the importance of an organization being congruent in its communication and implementation of policies and procedures that affect one's daily working life.

Clinical communication underpins safe patient care. The effective health professional sees illness through the patient’s eyes and understands what matters most to him or her. Effectiveness means gathering hard clinical data about the physical changes affecting the patient, understanding why the patient is concerned, conveying this to other health care professionals and involving the patient at every stage of management decisions. The evidence for good clinical communication is well established, although there are challenges. While listening is the basis of sound diagnosis and clinical reasoning, its absence affects patient outcomes particularly when patients are not permitted to make their concerns known or when there are gaps in information flow or communication between the professionals caring for them. The ABC of Clinical Communication considers the evidence pertinent to individual encounters between patients and their health professionals, how to achieve efficient flow of information, the function of clinical teams and developing a teaching programme. Topics covered include: The consultation Clinical communication and personality type Shared decision making Communication in clinical teams Communication in medical records Communication in specific situations, including mental health and end of life Teaching clinical communication The chapter authors are clinicians involved in communicating with patients, research and training healthcare professionals of the future. This team reflects the multidisciplinary approach required to develop effective clinical communication.

Documenting nursing care provided to patients is an essential component of the nursing profession and it is best achieved through a nursing care plan. A nursing care plan is used to document and communicate nursing care. In the care of patients, each patient is regarded as unique. Therefore, a care plan demonstrates individualized patient care that is, care based upon changing and revised patient needs and coping abilities reflected in diagnoses, goals and interventions in the physical, psychological and socio-cultural areas of functioning. Furthermore, it helps professional nursing staffs to refine their understanding of nursing diagnoses and charting skills, to identify nursing problems in need of care and propose appropriate care plans. Despite the aforesaid advantages, nursing care plans remain largely unutilized by nurses in many healthcare institutions. This study sought to identify those factors (nursing work characteristics, nurse' characteristics, nursing administration characteristics, and care plan characteristics) that hinder nurses from using nursing care plans. This will help the nursing fraternity to improve documenting care in nursing care plans.

A study conducted to understand quality of care and patient satisfaction from primary healthcare in Benghazi city. Quality has been defined in this study as doing right things right in a right manner at the right time with a right mix of manpower, equipments, space and management systems and subsystems. Patient satisfaction, the result of quality of care is the comfort level of beneficiaries in terms of care and concern shown by the facility. Beneficiaries are highly satisfied with the quality of care received. Two major significant variables associated with satisfaction are age of patient and selection of facilities. Those in younger age are less satisfied than others. People seek facilities at different locations and reach better satisfaction levels. This study concludes that primary health care facilities are working well effectively. But the efficiency of the system might be of attention in the coming years. This might be made through manpower mix, skill upgradation, human resource development activities and so on. Facilities might also focus on patient satisfaction. Provisions are made to ensure satisfaction of users.

At the core of national efforts to improve the quality of healthcare is a shift to value-based care, a drastic transition from the long-standing focus on volume-based healthcare. This market shift toward values-based health care, inspired by Harvard economist Michael Porter, is considered revolutionary. The now outdated fee-for-service model had incentives to "do" more. Order more tests. See more patients. Do more procedures. Make more money.Modern, value-based healthcare is about doing better, not just more. It’s about getting good-quality patient outcomes while using fewer healthcare resources; focusing on the continuum of care for patients rather than episodes of care; encompassing qualities of compassion, empathy, and responsiveness to the needs, values, and expressed preferences of the individual patient; employing evidence-based medicine and proven treatments and techniques; viewing the patient as a unique person, rather than focusing strictly on the illness; recognizing that family and friends are essential supports for the patient's healing process; and being transparent, upfront, and honest with information so patients can make informed decisions with us.Healthcare philanthropy is also in a state of transition. Like healthcare professionals, hospital fundraisers are also being asked to challenge assumptions and look for ways to do better instead of just doing more.Fundraising for Hospitals: Value-Based Healthcare Philanthropy, by William J.

In The Patient Revolution, author Krisa Tailor—a noted expert in health care innovation and management—explores, through the lens of design thinking, how information technology will take health care into the experience economy. In the experience economy, patients will shift to being empowered consumers who are active participants in their own care. Tailor explores this shift by creating a vision for a newly designed health care system that's focused on both sickness and wellness, and is driven by data and analytics. The new system seamlessly integrates health into our daily lives, and delivers care so uniquely personalized that no two people are provided identical treatments. Connected through data, everyone across the health care ecosystem, including clinicians, insurers, and researchers, will be able to meet individuals wherever they are in their health journey to reach the ultimate goal of keeping people healthy. The patient revolution has just begun and an exciting journey awaits us. Praise for the patient revolution «A full 50% of the US population has at least one chronic disease that requires ongoing monitoring and treatment. Our current health care system is woefully inadequate in providing these individuals with the treatment and support they need. This disparity can only be addressed through empowering patients to better care for themselves and giving providers better tools to care for their patients. Both of those solutions will require the development and application of novel technologies. In Krisa Tailor's book The Patient Revolution, a blueprint is articulated for how this could be achieved, culminating in a vision for a learning health system within 10 years.» —Ricky Bloomfield, MD, Director, Mobile Technology Strategy; Assistant Professor, Duke Medicine «In The Patient Revolution, Krisa Tailor astutely points out that 80% of health is impacted by factors outside of the health care system. Amazon unfortunately knows more about our patients than we do. The prescriptive analytics she describes will allow health care providers to use big data to optimize interventions at the level of the individual patient. The use of analytics will allow providers to improve quality, shape care coordination, and contain costs. Advanced analytics will lead to personalized care and ultimately empowered patients!» —Linda Butler, MD, Vice President of Medical Affairs/Chief Medical Officer/Chief Medical Information Officer, Rex Healthcare «The Patient Revolution provides a practical roadmap on how the industry can capture value by making health and care more personalized, anticipatory, and intuitive to patient needs.» —Ash Damle, CEO, Lumiata «Excellent read. For me, health care represents a unique economy—one focused on technology, but requiring a deep understanding of humanity. Ms. Tailor begins the exploration of how we provide care via the concepts of design thinking, asking how we might redesign care with an eye toward changing the experience. She does an excellent job deconstructing this from the patient experience. I look forward to a hopeful follow-up directed at changing the provider culture.» —Alan Pitt, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Avizia «Whether you're a health care provider looking to gain an understanding of the health care landscape, a health data scientist, or a seasoned business pro, you'll come away with a deeper, nuanced understanding of today's evolving health care system with this book. Krisa Tailor ties together—in a comprehensive, unique way—the worlds of health care administration, clinical practice, design thinking, and business strategy and innovation.» —Steven Chan, MD, MBA, University of California, Davis
