A detailed review and evaluation of selected clinical records by qualified professional personnel for evaluating quality of dental care.
A broad approach to appropriate coordination of the entire disease treatment process that often involves shifting away from more expensive inpatient and acute care to areas such as preventive medicine, patient counseling and education, and outpatient care. This concept includes implications of appropriate versus inappropriate therapy on the overall cost and clinical outcome of a particular disease. (From Hosp Pharm 1995 Jul;30(7):596)
An examination, review and verification of all financial accounts.
A traditional term for all the activities which a physician or other health care professional normally performs to insure the coordination of the medical services required by a patient. It also, when used in connection with managed care, covers all the activities of evaluating the patient, planning treatment, referral, and follow-up so that care is continuous and comprehensive and payment for the care is obtained. (From Slee & Slee, Health Care Terms, 2nd ed)
Generating, planning, organizing, and administering medical and nursing care and services for patients.
A form of therapy that employs a coordinated and interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those experiencing pain.
I'm sorry for any confusion, but 'England' is not a medical term and does not have a medical definition. England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom, known for its rich history, cultural heritage, and contributions to medical science. However, in a medical context, it may refer to the location of a patient, healthcare provider, or research study, but it is not a term with a specific medical meaning.

Referral of patients to an anticoagulant clinic: implications for better management. (1/132)

The quality of anticoagulant treatment of ambulatory patients is affected by the content of referral letters and administrative processes. To assess these influences a method was developed to audit against the hospital standard the referral of patients to one hospital anticoagulant clinic in a prospective study of all (80) new patients referred to the clinic over eight months. Administrative information was provided by the clinic coordinator, and the referral letters were audited by the researchers. Referral letters were not received by the clinic for 10% (8/80) of patients. Among the 72 referral letters received, indication for anticoagulation and anticipated duration of treatment were specified in most (99%, 71 and 81%, 58 respectively), but only 3% (two) to 46% (33) reported other important clinical information (objective investigations, date of starting anticoagulation, current anticoagulant dose, date and result of latest international normalised ratio, whether it should be the anticoagulant clinic that was eventually to stop anticoagulation, patients' other medical problems and concurrent treatment. Twenty two per cent (16/80) of new attenders were unexpected at the anticoagulant clinic. Most patients' case notes were obtained for the appointment (61%, 47/77 beforehand and 30% 23/77 on the day), but case notes were not obtained for 9% (7/77). The authors conclude that health professionals should better appreciate the administrative and organisational influences that affect team work and quality of care. Compliance with a well documented protocol remained below the acceptable standard. The quality of the referral process may be improved by using a more comprehensive and helpful referral form, which has been drawn up, and by educating referring doctors. Measures to increase the efficiency of the administrative process include telephoning the clinic coordinator directly, direct referrals through a computerised referral system, and telephone reminders by haematology office staff to ward staff to ensure availability of the hospital notes. The effect of these changes will be assessed in a repeat audit.  (+info)

Regional organisational audit of district departments of public health. (2/132)

Organisational audit of public health in the United Kingdom is rare. To provide a framework for a structured organisational audit in district public health departments in one region organisational factors contributing to efficient, high quality work were identified and compared between districts, enabling each department to identify its organisational strengths and weaknesses. A draft list of organisational factors, based on the King's Fund organisational audit programme, were rated by 52 public health physicians and trainees in 12 district public health departments in South East Thames region for their importance on a scale of 0 (not relevant) to 5 (vital). Factors with average ratings of > 4, judged to be "vital" and proxies for standards, were then used to compare each district's actual performance, as reported by its director of public health in a self reported questionnaire. In all, 37 responses were received to the rating questionnaire (response rate 71%) and 12 responses to the directors' questionnaire. Of the 54 factors identified as vital factors, 20(37%) were achieved in all 12 districts and 16(30%) in all but one district; 18 were not being achieved by two (33%) districts or more. Overall, vital factors were not being achieved in 9% of cases. The authors concluded that most departments are achieving most vital organisational factors most of the time, but improvement is still possible. The results have been used as a basis for planning the organisation of public health departments in several of the newly formed commissioning agencies. This was the first regional audit of public health of its kind performed in the region and it provided valuable experience for planning future regional audit activity.  (+info)

Improving primary health care through systematic supervision: a controlled field trial. (3/132)

Most primary health care services in developing countries are delivered by staff working in peripheral facilities where supervision is problematic. This study examined whether systematic supervision using an objective set of indicators could improve health worker performance. A checklist was developed by the Philippine Department of Health which assigned a score from 0 to 3 on each of 20 indicators which were clearly defined. The checklist was implemented in 4 remote provinces with 6 provinces from the same regions serving as a control area. In all 10 provinces, health facilities were randomly selected and surveyed before implementation of the checklist and again 6 months later. Performance, as measured by the combined scores on the 20 indicators, improved 42% (95% Cl = 29% to 55%) in the experimental group compared to 18% (95% Cl = 9% to 27%) in the control group. In the experimental, but not in the control facilities, there was a correlation between frequency of supervision and improvements in scores. The initial cost of implementing the checklist was US $ 19.92 per health facility and the annual recurrent costs were estimated at $ 1.85. Systematic supervision using clearly defined and quantifiable indicators can improve service delivery considerably, at modest cost.  (+info)

Study of a patient referral system in the Republic of Honduras. (4/132)

The first nationwide study on a patient referral system was conducted in Honduras. It covered all 25 public hospitals (six National, five Regional and 14 Area Hospitals) and 24 major health centres. Based on 46,739 reviews of patient records, 226 'received referral' and 1072 'sent referral' cases were analyzed by age and sex of the patient, diagnosis on referral, institution from or to which the case was referred, use of proper referral form, and reception of reply for referrals. At the same time, the study team supervised the function of the registry and management of patient records at each institution. The average referral rate by the level of health facility was 15.8% at National, 4.0% at Regional, 2.8% at Area Hospitals, and 0.8% at health centres. The referral rate was observed to be higher when institutional managers emphasized the importance of the referral system. Only 1.4% of referrals received a reply from upper level institutions. The most common cases for referral were neurological at National, obstetric at Regional and respiratory cases at Area Hospitals. The use rate of the standard referral form was 70 to 80% at hospitals and 60% at health centres. There was no norm to duplicate referral letters for record keeping. The patient referral system has not developed satisfactorily in Honduras. The main problems were: 1) low referral rate at all levels of institution, 2) evident by-pass phenomenon at intermediate hospitals, 3) inadequate health information system for patient referral, and 4) misunderstanding of the terminology of referral by health personnel. The following recommendations were made: guarantee of essential health services at peripheral institutions, development of an effective information system for patient referral, facilitation of frequent reply for referrals, elaboration of referral case discussion between institutions, patient education on proper use of health facilities, and restructuring the health service network in the two major cities.  (+info)

Auditing occupational medicine. (5/132)

An important challenge facing the quality of practice in occupational medicine is a limited evidence-base, but equally important is the need to translate good evidence into high quality practice. Audit has an important role to play in addressing the determinants of variations in practice. Furthermore where the evidence is good enough to permit the development of valid practice guidelines, audit may help in improving education and standards of practice. External audit may have a role to play in ensuring conformity with service-level agreements and especially in addressing issues of quality which some management systems may fail to address. As more literature is published reviewing and achieving a consensus on the evidence-base for the practice of occupational medicine, and as more experience in audit is described, it can make an important contribution to quality in occupational medicine.  (+info)

Quality management in Australian emergency medicine: translation of theory into practice. (6/132)

OBJECTIVES: The primary objective was to describe the current level of implementation of quality management (QM) structures and practices with Australian emergency departments. The secondary objective was to describe the level of association between the presence of QM structures and processes and the achievement of associated improvements. DESIGN: Data were collected by mail-out of a structured survey instrument to all Australian emergency departments accredited for postgraduate training by the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine. PARTICIPANTS: Director of Emergency Medicine or delegate in each surveyed department. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The presence of specific structure and process indicators of QM and the achievement of QM linked improvements. RESULTS: A response rate of 63% was achieved. Designation of a hospital quality improvement (QI) physician was reported by 40% of institutions, an emergency department (ED) QI physician by 40%, and an ED QI nurse by 67%. A structured system for QM indicator analysis was present in 67% of the departments; in 45% of the departments public reporting of performance occurred. There was a significant association between QM process indicators and the presence of (i) a hospital QI physician (P=0.02), (ii) an ED QI nurse (P=0.02), (iii) presence of a system for data analysis and reporting (P=0.01), and (iv) presence of a QM component to postgraduate education (P= 0.05). There was a significant relationship between the presence of QM process indicators and the achievement of QM linked improvements (P= 0.003). CONCLUSIONS: Demonstration of the links between QM structures, its indicators of activity (in structure and process), and the achievement of outcome improvement is fundamental to quality improvement methodology. These links are demonstrated within the context of Australian emergency medicine, providing support for the effectiveness of this approach in promoting change and performance improvement.  (+info)

Use of performance standards in behavioral health carve-out contracts among Fortune 500 firms. (7/132)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence and nature of performance standards in specialty managed behavioral healthcare contracts among Fortune 500 companies. STUDY DESIGN: This was a cross-sectional survey of all companies listed on the Fortune 500 during 1994, 1995, or both. METHODS: From April 1997 to May 1998 we conducted a mailed survey with phone follow-up. Of the 68% of firms that responded, over one third reported carve-out contracts. The survey focused on whether companies had behavioral health carve-out contracts with specialty vendors and characteristics of these contracts, including the use of performance standards. RESULTS: More than three quarters of the Fortune 500 companies reporting specialty behavioral healthcare contracts used at least one performance standard. Most common were administrative standards (70.2%) and customer service standards (69.4%). About half of the companies used quality standards, whereas only a third used provider-related standards. Most (58.8%) companies using performance standards also specified financial consequences. Larger Fortune 500 firms were significantly more likely to use performance standards. Risk contracts and contracts that included all covered employees were also more likely to include some categories of standards. CONCLUSIONS: Administrative and customer service standards may be most common because companies find it easier to specify those standards, especially compared with clinical quality measures. To the extent that employers want to obtain the most value from their behavioral healthcare purchasing, we expect that more will begin to adopt quality standards in their contracts, especially as performance measures become more refined. Reliance on accreditation, however, is an alternative approach for employers.  (+info)

Improving the repeat prescribing process in a busy general practice. A study using continuous quality improvement methodology. (8/132)

PROBLEM: A need to improve service to patients by reducing the time wasted by reception staff so that the 48 hour target for processing repeat prescription requests for patient collection could be achieved. DESIGN: An interprofessional team was established within the practice to tackle the area of repeat prescribing which had been identified as a priority by practice reception staff. The team met four times in three months and used continuous quality improvement (CQI) methodology (including the Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle) with the assistance of an external facilitator. BACKGROUND AND SETTING: A seven partner practice serving the 14,000 patients on the northern outskirts of Bournemouth including a large council estate and a substantial student population from Bournemouth University. The repeat prescribing process is computerised. KEY MEASURES FOR IMPROVEMENT: Reducing turn around times for repeat prescription requests. Reducing numbers of requests which need medical records to be checked to issue the script. Feedback to staff about the working of the process. STRATEGIES FOR CHANGE: Using a Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle for guidance, the team decided to (a) coincide repeat medications and to record on the computer drugs prescribed during visits; (b) give signing of prescriptions a higher priority and bring them to doctors' desks at an agreed time; and (c) move the site for printing prescriptions to the reception desk so as to facilitate face to face queries. EFFECTS OF CHANGE: Prescription turnaround within 48 hours increased from 95% to 99% with reduced variability case to case and at a reduced cost. The number of prescriptions needing records to be looked at was reduced from 18% to 8.6%. This saved at least one working day of receptionist time each month. Feedback from all staff within the practice indicated greatly increased satisfaction with the newly designed process. LESSONS LEARNT: The team's experience suggests that a combination of audit and improvement methodology offers a powerful way to learn about, and improve, practice. The interventions used by the team not only produced measurable and sustainable improvements but also helped the team to learn about the cost of achieving the results and provided them with tools to accomplish the aims. The importance of feedback to all staff about CQI measures was also recognised.  (+info)

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "Management Audit" is not a term that has a specific medical definition. It is a concept that is more commonly used in business and management contexts. A Management Audit refers to an examination and evaluation of an organization's or a company's management systems, processes, and practices. Its aim is to assess their effectiveness, efficiency, and compliance with established policies, procedures, and laws.

If you have any questions related to medical terminology or healthcare concepts, I would be happy to help!

A medical audit is a systematic review and evaluation of the quality of medical care against established standards to see if it is being delivered efficiently, effectively, and equitably. It is a quality improvement process that aims to improve patient care and outcomes by identifying gaps between actual and desired practice, and implementing changes to close those gaps. Medical audits can focus on various aspects of healthcare delivery, including diagnosis, treatment, medication use, and follow-up care. The ultimate goal of medical audits is to ensure that patients receive the best possible care based on current evidence and best practices.

A clinical audit is a quality improvement process that involves systematically evaluating and improving the care delivered to patients. It is based on comparing current practice against evidence-based standards or guidelines, identifying gaps between current and desired practice, and implementing changes to close those gaps. Clinical audits can focus on various aspects of healthcare delivery, including clinical outcomes, patient safety, patient experience, and clinical processes. The aim of a clinical audit is to ensure that patients receive high-quality care that meets best practice standards, leading to improved health outcomes and patient satisfaction.

A nursing audit is a systematic review and evaluation of nursing practice, care, and outcomes in relation to established standards, policies, and guidelines. It is a quality improvement process that aims to identify strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement in nursing care, with the goal of enhancing patient safety, outcomes, and overall healthcare delivery. Nursing audits can focus on various aspects of nursing practice, such as documentation, assessment, care planning, implementation, and evaluation. The findings from a nursing audit are typically used to inform education, policy development, and performance improvement initiatives.

A dental audit is a systematic review and evaluation of the dental records, procedures, and care provided by a dentist or dental practice. The purpose of a dental audit is to assess the quality of care, identify any areas for improvement, and ensure that appropriate policies and procedures are being followed. This can include reviews of patient records, treatment plans, billing practices, and adherence to infection control guidelines.

The results of a dental audit may be used to improve the quality of care provided to patients, reduce the risk of errors or complications, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. Dental audits may be conducted internally by dental practices themselves, or externally by dental organizations, insurance companies, or government agencies.

Disease management is a proactive, planned approach to identify and manage patients with chronic medical conditions. It involves a systematic and coordinated method of delivering care to patients with the goal of improving clinical outcomes, enhancing quality of life, and reducing healthcare costs. This approach typically includes elements such as evidence-based care guidelines, patient education, self-management support, regular monitoring and follow-up, and collaboration between healthcare providers and specialists.

The objective of disease management is to improve the overall health and well-being of patients with chronic conditions by providing them with the necessary tools, resources, and support to effectively manage their condition and prevent complications. By implementing a comprehensive and coordinated approach to care, disease management can help reduce hospitalizations, emergency department visits, and other costly healthcare services while improving patient satisfaction and overall health outcomes.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "Financial Audit" is not a medical term. It belongs to the field of accounting and finance. A financial audit is an independent examination of an organization's financial records, statements, and accounting practices to ensure that they are accurate, complete, and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. This process is conducted by professional auditors who are unbiased and independent from the organization being audited.

Case management is a collaborative process that involves the assessment, planning, facilitation, care coordination, evaluation, and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual's health needs through communication and available resources to promote patient safety, quality of care, and cost-effective outcomes. It is commonly used in healthcare settings such as hospitals, clinics, and long-term care facilities to ensure that patients receive appropriate and timely care while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and managing costs.

The goal of case management is to help patients navigate the complex healthcare system, improve their health outcomes, and enhance their quality of life by coordinating all aspects of their care, including medical treatment, rehabilitation, social support, and community resources. Effective case management requires a team-based approach that involves the active participation of the patient, family members, healthcare providers, and other stakeholders in the decision-making process.

The specific duties and responsibilities of a case manager may vary depending on the setting and population served, but typically include:

1. Assessment: Conducting comprehensive assessments to identify the patient's medical, psychosocial, functional, and environmental needs.
2. Planning: Developing an individualized care plan that outlines the goals, interventions, and expected outcomes of the patient's care.
3. Facilitation: Coordinating and facilitating the delivery of services and resources to meet the patient's needs, including arranging for appointments, tests, procedures, and referrals to specialists or community agencies.
4. Care coordination: Ensuring that all members of the healthcare team are aware of the patient's care plan and providing ongoing communication and support to ensure continuity of care.
5. Evaluation: Monitoring the patient's progress towards their goals, adjusting the care plan as needed, and evaluating the effectiveness of interventions.
6. Advocacy: Advocating for the patient's rights and needs, including access to healthcare services, insurance coverage, and community resources.

Overall, case management is a critical component of high-quality healthcare that helps patients achieve their health goals while managing costs and improving their overall well-being.

Patient care management is a coordinated, comprehensive approach to providing healthcare services to individuals with chronic or complex medical conditions. It involves the development and implementation of a plan of care that is tailored to the needs of the patient, with the goal of improving clinical outcomes, enhancing quality of life, and reducing healthcare costs.

Patient care management typically involves a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, and other specialists as needed. The team works together to assess the patient's medical, psychological, social, and functional needs, and develop a plan of care that addresses those needs in a holistic and coordinated manner.

The plan of care may include a range of services, such as:

* Regular monitoring and management of chronic conditions
* Medication management and education
* Coordination of specialist appointments and other healthcare services
* Education and support for self-management of health conditions
* Behavioral health interventions to address mental health or substance use disorders
* Assistance with accessing community resources, such as transportation or housing

The ultimate goal of patient care management is to help patients achieve their optimal level of health and well-being, while also ensuring that healthcare services are delivered in a cost-effective and efficient manner. By coordinating care across providers and settings, patient care management can help reduce unnecessary hospitalizations, emergency department visits, and other costly interventions, while improving the overall quality of care for patients with complex medical needs.

Pain management is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of pain and improvement in the quality of life of patients with chronic pain. The goal of pain management is to reduce pain levels, improve physical functioning, and help patients cope mentally and emotionally with their pain. This may involve the use of medications, interventional procedures, physical therapy, psychological therapy, or a combination of these approaches.

The definition of pain management can vary depending on the medical context, but it generally refers to a multidisciplinary approach that addresses the complex interactions between biological, psychological, and social factors that contribute to the experience of pain. Pain management specialists may include physicians, nurses, physical therapists, psychologists, and other healthcare professionals who work together to provide comprehensive care for patients with chronic pain.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "England" is not a medical term or concept. It is one of the four constituent countries that make up the United Kingdom, along with Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. England is located in the southern part of Great Britain, which is the largest island of the British Isles.

If you have any questions related to medicine or healthcare, I would be happy to try to help answer them for you!
