Essential dataset for ambulatory ear, nose, and throat care in general practice: an aid for quality assessment. (1/181)OBJECTIVE: To describe the documentation of care for the usual range of ear, nose, and throat (ENT) problems seen in primary care as a basis for developing a computerised information system to aid quality assessment. DESIGN: Descriptive study of the pattern of ENT problems and diagnoses and treatment as recorded in individual case notes. SETTING: The primary health care centre in Mjolby, Sweden. PATIENTS: Consultations for ENT problems from a 10% sample randomly selected from all consultations (n = 22,600) in one year. From this sample 375 consultations for ENT problems (16% of all consultations) by 272 patients were identified. MAIN MEASURES: The detailed documentation of each consultation was retrieved from the individual records and compared with the data required for a computer based information system designed to help in quality management. RESULTS: Although the overall picture gained from the data retrieved from the notes suggested that ENT care was probably adequate, the recorded details were limited. The written case notes were insufficient when compared with the details required for a computerised system based on an essential dataset designed to allow assessment of diagnostic accuracy and appropriateness of treatment of ENT problems in primary care. CONCLUSION: There is a gap between the amount and the type of information needed for accurate and useful quality assessment and that which is normally included in case notes. More detailed information is needed if general practitioners' notes are to be used for regular quality assessment of ENT problems but that would mean more time spent on keeping notes. This would be difficult to justify. IMPLICATIONS: The routine information systems used at this primary healthcare centre did not produce sufficient documentation for quality assessment of ENT care. This dilemma might be resolved by specially designed desktop computer software accessed through an essential dataset. (+info)
Improving clinician acceptance and use of computerized documentation of coded diagnosis. (2/181)After the Northwest Division of Kaiser Permanente implemented EpicCare, a comprehensive electronic medical record, clinicians were required to directly document orders and diagnoses on this computerized system, a task they found difficult and time consuming. We analyzed the sources of this problem to improve the process and increase its acceptance by clinicians. One problem was the use of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9) as our coding scheme, even though ICD-9 is not a complete nomenclature of diseases and using it as such creates difficulties. In addition, the synonym list we used had some inaccurate associations, contributing to clinician frustration. Furthermore, the initial software program contained no adequate mechanism for adding qualifying comments or preferred terminology. We sought to address all these issues. Strategies included adjusting the available coding choices and descriptions and modifying the medical record software. In addition, the software vendor developed a utility that allows clinicians to replace the ICD-9 description with their own preferred terminology while preserving the ICD-9 code. We present an evaluation of this utility. (+info)
Successful implementation of a comprehensive computer-based patient record system in Kaiser Permanente Northwest: strategy and experience. (3/181)Kaiser Permanente Northwest (KPNW) has implemented a computer-based patient record (CPR) system for outpatients. Clinicians at KPNW use this comprehensive CPR to electronically document patient encounters; code diagnoses and procedures; maintain problem lists; order laboratory tests, radiology tests, and prescriptions; and send patient-specific messages and referrals to other medical providers. More than 700 clinicians, representing more than 20 medical and surgical specialties, and 2600 support staff in 31 geographically separate sites use this system as the information foundation of delivery and documentation of health care for KPNW's membership of 430,000. As of May 1998, more than four million visits and two million telephone calls had been processed and documented into the system. More than 5000 outpatient visits are processed and documented each weekday. From an integrated clinical workstation, clinicians also access e-mail, an extensive results-reporting system, and sites on both the internet and KPNW's intranet. This article describes a strategy for and experience with the implementation of a large-scale, comprehensive CPR in an integrated HMO. This information may be useful for persons attempting to implement CPRs in their own institutions. (+info)
Support of quality and business goals by an ambulatory automated medical record system in Kaiser Permanente of Ohio. (4/181)Kaiser Permanente of Ohio has developed a Medical Automated Record System (MARS) to address the business and clinical needs of the organization. The system is currently used by 220 physicians and 110 allied health personnel. To support the quality initiatives of the organization, the system has been programmed to generate reminders, at the moment of care, on compliance with clinical guidelines. This article details examples of compliance improvements with guidelines for the use of aspirin in coronary artery disease, use of influenza vaccinations in members older than 64 years of age, and stratification of asthmatic patients into severity levels; it also summarizes other quality improvements. MARS provides a data stream for electronic billing, which saves the organization the cost of manual billing. In addition, this system reduces operating costs, in particular the number of staff needed to deliver charts and the cost of printing forms. Cost-benefit analysis demonstrates that the system can produce savings in excess of maintenance costs. (+info)
Evaluating ambulatory resident practice using an Internet-based system. (5/181)To improve faculty participation in providing feedback on resident outpatient practice, we designed and implemented an Internet-based evaluation system. Attending physicians scored residents on 7 questions related to specific practice behaviors, and completed a free-text comment section. Between January and June 1998, 516 evaluations for 107 residents were generated using the Internet-based system, compared with 29 handwritten evaluations for 82 residents between January and June 1997. The number of faculty evaluations was 527 for 121 residents in the second half of 1998. An Internet-based evaluation system can improve faculty compliance with performing evaluations. (+info)
Comparing user acceptance of a computer system in two pediatric offices: a qualitative study. (6/181)The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine user acceptance of a clinical computer system in two pediatric practices in the southeast. Data were gathered through interviews with practice and IS staff, observations in the clinical area, and review of system implementation records. Five months after implementation, Practice A continued to use the system but Practice B had quit using it because it was unacceptable to the users. The results are presented here, in relation to a conceptual framework, which was originally developed to describe the process of successful implementation of research findings into practice. Five main themes were identified relative to the differences in user acceptance at the two practices: 1) Benefits versus expense of system use varied, 2) Organizational cultures differed, 3) IS staff's relationship with practices differed, 4) Post-implementation experiences differed, and 5) Transfer of technology from the academic center to private practice proved challenging in Practice B. The findings indicate a need for the development and validation of tools to measure healthcare organizational climate and readiness for change. (+info)
Studying the human-computer-terminology interface. (7/181)OBJECTIVE: To explore the use of an observational, cognitive-based approach for differentiating between successful, suboptimal, and failed entry of coded data by clinicians in actual practice, and to detect whether causes for unsuccessful attempts to capture true intended meaning were due to terminology content, terminology representation, or user interface problems. DESIGN: Observational study with videotaping and subsequent coding of data entry events in an outpatient clinic at New York Presbyterian Hospital. PARTICIPANTS: Eight attending physicians, 18 resident physicians, and 1 nurse practitioner, using the Medical Entities Dictionary (MED) to record patient problems, medications, and adverse reactions in an outpatient medical record system. MEASUREMENTS: Classification of data entry events as successful, suboptimal, or failed, and estimation of cause; recording of system response time and total event time. RESULTS: Two hundred thirty-eight data entry events were analyzed; 71.0 percent were successful, 6.3 percent suboptimal, and 22.7 percent failed; unsuccessful entries were due to problems with content in 13.0 percent of events, representation problems in 10.1 percent of events, and usability problems in 5.9 percent of events. Response time averaged 0.74 sec, and total event time averaged 40.4 sec. Of an additional 209 tasks related to drug dose and frequency terms, 94 percent were successful, 0.5 percent were suboptimal, and 6 percent failed, for an overall success rate of 82 percent. CONCLUSIONS: Data entry by clinicians using the outpatient system and the MED was generally successful and efficient. The cognitive-based observational approach permitted detection of false-positive (suboptimal) and false-negative (failed due to user interface) data entry. (+info)
Electronic prescribing in ambulatory practice: promises, pitfalls, and potential solutions. (8/181)OBJECTIVE: To examine advantages of and obstacles to electronic prescribing in the ambulatory care environment. DATA SOURCES: MEDLINE and International Pharmaceutical Abstract searches were conducted for the period from January 1980 to September 2000. Key words were electronic prescribing, computerized physician order entry, prior authorization, drug utilization review, and consumer satisfaction. In September 2000, a public search engine (www.google.com) was used to find additional technical information. In addition, pertinent articles were cross-referenced to identify other resources. DATA EXTRACTION: Articles, symposia proceedings, and organizational position statements published in the United States on electronic prescribing and automation in healthcare are cited. DATA SYNTHESIS: Electronic prescribing can eliminate the time gap between point of care and point of service, reduce medication errors, improve quality of care, and increase patient satisfaction. Considerable funding requirements, segmentation of healthcare markets, lack of technology standardization, providers' resistance to change, and regulatory indecisiveness create boundaries to the widespread use of automated prescribing. The potential solutions include establishing a standardizing warehouse or a router and gaining stakeholder support in implementation of the technology. CONCLUSIONS: Electronic prescribing can provide immense benefits to healthcare providers, patients, and managed care. Resolution of several obstacles that limit feasibility of this technology will determine its future. (+info)

Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte: Extração, caracterização e avaliação bioativa do extrato de Arrabidaea chica
A utilização de plantas com finalidades medicinais é milenar, sendo bastante difundida sua aplicação em medicamentos. Apesar das plantas serem fontes promissoras para a descoberta de novas moléculas de interesse farmacológico, estimativas revelam que apenas 17% delas foram estudadas quanto a sua possibilidade de uso na medicina. Assim, a biodiversidade da flora brasileira representa um imenso potencial de utilização econômica pela indústria farmacêutica. A planta Arrabidaea chica, popularmente conhecida como "pariri", é comum na região Amazônica, e a ela são atribuídas várias propriedades medicinais. As folhas desta planta são ricas em antocianinas, que são compostos fenólicos com alto poder antioxidante. Os compostos antioxidantes desempenham um papel vital na prevenção de doenças neurológicas e cardiovasculares, câncer e diabetes, entre outras. Dentre as antocianinas encontradas na Arrabidaea chica, destaca-se a Carajurina (6,7-dihidroxi-5,4- dimetoxi-flavilium), que ...

DEA allows controlled drug e-prescribing, handing pharmacy advocates a key victory - Drug Store News
In an announcement this afternoon, the DEA issued its interim final rule allowing for the paperless prescribing of controlled substances. Publication of the new rule clears away the last barrier preventing doctors and pharmacists from shifting controlled medicines into information technology and the digital age, and it marks a dramatic victory for e-prescribing advocates.. Chain pharmacy representatives were jubilant. "This is the first time ever that there can be a coordinated e-prescribing system for both controlled and non-controlled prescription medication," the National Association of Chain Drug Stores crowed in a statement. "The prior inability to utilize e-prescribing for controlled substances frequently was reported as a major barrier to physician adoption of e-prescribing.". NACDS president and CEO Steve Anderson said the DEAs decision marks "truly an historic day for the healthcare system, as this rule will allow much-needed health information technology solutions to better serve ...

It seems that the apparent failure of current EHRs to accommodate patients as unique cases has sparked a shift in attitude in the health IT industry. Some insiders say the issue may not be so much the failure of EHRs, as their falling short of unduly high expectations from users and the vendors themselves.

SUMMARY: Executive Regulation 73-91 is proposed for repeal because it is obsolete. The regulation applied to Emergency Medical Technician-A, under a level of certification administered by the Maryland Institute of Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS). This requirement was changed to EMT-B in 1999, and all County EMS providers now comply with MIEMSS updated standard, as well as meeting the requirement to have a quality assurance program in place for EMT-B service providers. The existing regulation is obsolete and is proposed for repeal for this reason ...
There are two major seasons when you can see large numbers of birds:. Winter:. The height of this season is November-February. This is the best time to see shorebirds, ducks, loons and other species that migrate from their northern ranges in the summer to Bolsa Chica and southern ranges in the winter. From the Mesa trail many of these birds can be viewed at low tide. Summer:. The height of this season is April-August. This is the best time to see terns, avocets, Black-necked Stilts, and Western Snowy Plovers that migrate here from southern regions that they occupy during winter months. For these species Bolsa Chica is the perfect place to nest. This is a good time to visit the South Lot and observe the nesting islands and dunes where many of these birds nest. Off Months:. Though during September, October, and March there is a lull in the number of birds that can be seen, do not let this discourage a visit to the wetlands in search of birds. Many birds are migrating through during these months, ...

Technical Report-Pediatric and Adolescent Mental Health Emergencies in the Emergency Medical Services System | FROM THE...
Emergency department (ED) health care professionals often care for patients with previously diagnosed psychiatric illnesses who are ill, injured, or having a behavioral crisis. In addition, ED personnel encounter children with psychiatric illnesses who may not present to the ED with overt mental health symptoms. Staff education and training regarding identification and management of pediatric mental health illness can help EDs overcome the perceived limitations of the setting that influence timely and comprehensive evaluation. In addition, ED physicians can inform and advocate for policy changes at local, state, and national levels that are needed to ensure comprehensive care of children with mental health illnesses. This report addresses the roles that the ED and ED health care professionals play in emergency mental health care of children and adolescents in the United States, which includes the stabilization and management of patients in mental health crisis, the discovery of mental illnesses ...

The Costa Chica of Guerrero (Spanish for "small coast of Guerrero") is an area along the south coast of the state of Guerrero, Mexico, extending from just south of Acapulco to the Oaxaca border. Geographically, it consists of part of the Sierra Madre del Sur, a strip of rolling hills that lowers to coastal plains to the Pacific Ocean. Various rivers here form large estuaries and lagoons that host various species of commercial fish. This area is paired with the Costa Chica of Oaxaca as both have significant populations of Afro-Mexicans, who settled in the area as escaped slaves. The Afro-Mexican presence in Guerrero is strongest in this region, especially in the coastal municipalities from Marquelia to Cuajinicuilapa. Another important ethnic group is the Amuzgo, who are by far the largest indigenous ethnicity in the region, in the municipalities of Xochistlahuaca, Tlacoachistlahuaca and Ometepec. The Amuzgo, especially in Xochistlahuca, still wear traditional clothing and speak the Amuzgo ...

That designation came today, as e-prescribing platform provider Surescripts released its state rankings during the fourth annual Safe-Rx Awards ceremony at the National Press Club. The Bay State ranked first in the nation when it came to the use among state physicians of paperless prescribing, Surescripts president and CEO Harry Totonis announced.. Massachusetts sent more than 6.7 million prescriptions electronically in 2008, representing 20.5% of all eligible prescriptions in the state, according to Surescripts. That compares with 2.3% sent electronically in the state in 2005, Totonis noted.. Massachusetts was one of 15 states recognized for its efforts to promote e-prescribing at the Safe-Rx event, established in 2005 to raise awareness about the benefits of paperless prescriptions.. "As much as this program is about measuring and recognizing real success, its greater purpose is to highlight the leaders who are driving that success, and the stories of how they are doing it," said Totonis.

Study: Minimally injured people sent to trauma centers costs hundreds of millions per year - Healthcanal.com : Healthcanal.com
During a three-year period in seven metropolitan areas in the western United States, the emergency medical services system sent more than 85,000 injured patients to major trauma hospitals who didnt need to go there - costing the health care system more than $130 million per year, according to an Oregon Health & Science University study published today in the journal Health Affairs. The study gathered data from emergency services calls from 94 EMS agencies in the seven metropolitan areas from January 2006 through December 2008. The agencies were using national trauma triage guidelines to decide where to transport the injured patients, so the studys findings are likely representative of what happens across the United States. "What our study shows is there are huge cost implications in how EMS systems work to get injured patients to the appropriate hospitals," said Craig Newgard, M.D., an associate professor of emergency medicine at OHSU who is director of the OHSU Center for Policy and Research ...

Doc2Doc user OmarhBore posted a blog this week on the futility of the current reflective practice system for junior doctors, suggesting alternative media for reflection, including poetry, amusing musings on NHS computer screens, and interpretive dance. He felt that the enforced reflections were too contrived, and there was more to be gained from reflection than the current system allows. Reflective practice wasnt invented when I was a lad, or at least, it wasnt particularly encouraged. Not that I remember, that is.. But I agree with our Doc2Doc FY-Blogger. Theres a lot to be learnt from our experiences, particularly our mistakes. And its easy to make mistakes - I made a mistake today - but its harder to talk about it, learn something from it, and move forward.. A common complaint from consultant colleagues is the feeling that we do more and more tasks that were previously carried out by more junior doctors. Im sure Ive ticked that box on surveys at some point. So today when I needed to ...
Clinicians use drug detoxification to reduce or relieve withdrawal symptoms while helping an addicted individual adjust to living without drug use; drug detoxification does not aim to treat addiction but rather represents an early step within long-term treatment. Detoxification may be achieved drug-free or may use medications as an aspect of treatment. Often drug detoxification and treatment will occur in a community program that lasts several months and takes place in a residential setting rather than in a medical center.. Drug detoxification varies depending on the location of treatment, but most detox centers provide treatment to avoid the symptoms of physical withdrawal from alcohol and from other drugs. Most also incorporate counseling and therapy during detox to help with the consequences of withdrawal.. ...
