TY - JOUR. T1 - Organizational Factors that Influence Information Technology Diffusion in Academic Health Sciences Centers. AU - Ash, Joan. PY - 1997. Y1 - 1997. N2 - Objective: To identify the organizational factors which influence the diffusion of end user online literature searching, the computer-based patient record, and electronic mail systems in academic health sciences centers in the United States. Design: A total of 1335 individuals working in informatics and library areas at 67 academic health sciences centers in the U.S. were surveyed. Multivariate techniques were used to evaluate the relationship between the set of six organizational factors and two measures of innovation diffusion. Measurements: A Guttman-like scale was developed to measure infusion, or depth or sophistication, of each of the three innovations at each institution. Diffusion was measured by a question previously developed for another study. Six independent variables were measured via five formerly developed scales and ...
The American academic health center has emerged from a tradition that bound research, teaching, and patient care. In recent decades major changes in its faculty array and activities have been generated by extramural funding patterns that have emphasized the research functions of the faculty and, more recently, subspecialty care by faculty members, to the detriment of teaching functions and of immersion in major health care and health promotion issues. The latter are arising more prominently in the public agenda than in the academic agenda. The academic health centers should re-examine their activities with particular attention to the opportunities afforded by this emergent public agenda in biomedicine and health. ...

Infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) doubled at academic medical centers in the US between 2003 and 2008, according to a report published in the August issue of Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, the journal of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America.
After graduation, many MHA students pursue administrative fellowships at healthcare organizations. In recent years, students obtained positions at academic medical centers, consulting organizations, community hospitals, insurers, and health systems.. The post-graduate fellowship is a comprehensive learning opportunity which refines the individuals analytic, technical, decision-making, and interpersonal, while providing broad exposure to health care issues within an organizational setting. Fellowships afford a valuable means of observing, developing and demonstrating practical management skills while developing career networks of valued colleagues.. Graduates who decide not to pursue an administrative fellowship are employed in a variety of positions and organizations, including consulting, medical group management, policy firms, and third party payers.. Post-graduate placement map…. ...
Recent changes to the delivery of health care, including the affordable health care act, mandates concerning cost reduction, the need for greater efficiency in patient care and new reimbursement models have driven academic medical centers (AMCs) to the edge of a precipice. They have reached a critical mass where they must restructure, reorganize and innovate or else they will almost certainly become financially unsustainable and obsolete.. How did they get here? As the health care landscape has continued to evolve, these academic institutions have remained rather stagnant, creating financial pressure and a changing environment with which they cannot keep up. If the medical community is to keep AMCs from closing or from ceasing to be academic, they must now exert enormous effort to keep them viable.. "To say AMCs are important, is to say that academic medicine is important," says Marvin A. Konstam, MD, FACC, chair of ACCs Academic Section. "What were talking about here is preserving the ability ...
OBJECTIVES: To better understand patient satisfaction and perceived engagement with traditional hospital-based communication and to elicit patient preferences for health information technologies that would lead to improved satisfaction and engagement. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a mixed-methods study involving qualitative interviews followed by a survey of hospitalized patients and their family members at a single large academic medical center. METHODS: We conducted semi-structured interviews with 41 patients and surveyed 267 patients or family members to elicit their perspectives on satisfaction with traditional hospital communication methods, information needed to more fully engage in the patients medical care, and potential solutions for improved hospital-based communication ...

INTRODUCTION: The population of patients in the USA over the age of 65 is expected to significantly increase over the next 40 years. These patients are at increased risk for hip fractures and will pose a burden to providers in the near future. In order to provide high value care, providers will need to maintain positive outcomes, mitigate complications, and reduce overall cost burdens. This study was designed to investigate the safety and efficacy of a patient transfer protocol between a large academic medical center and a single specialty orthopaedic institution ...

LOS ANGELES -- Older patients admitted to a large academic medical center on busy shifts may have a greater mortality risk than those who come to the hospital on less frenetic days, suggested investig
The results also underline the need for something that is particularly important to me: enhanced, appropriately funded surveillance that will define the true size of the MRSA epidemic and delineate the behavior of the various strains within it. Right now, surveillance is patchy and incomplete, done partially by various CDC initiatives and partially by the major MRSA research teams at academic medical centers. As weve discussed, there is no national requirement for surveillance of patients, and very few state requirements; there is no incentive for insurance companies to pay for surveillance, since it benefits public health, not the patient whose treatment the insurance is paying for; and there is a strong disincentive for hospitals to disclose surveillance results, because they will be tarred as dirty or problematic. Yet to know what to do about the MRSA epidemic, we first have to know the size and character of what we are dealing with, and we do not now ...

There was also a half-day release to assess elderly patients at home. In the fourth year, students had twelve half days in general practice on the management of chronic illness, with opportunities for computer assisted learning. They were also taken to see patients with infectious diseases at home. Organising teaching was a considerable task involving fifty to 100 general practice tutors, who received little recompense. In addition, staff did joint teaching in the third integrated year, including at the bedside in hospitals. This was helped a great deal by the support of the then FHSA who believed strongly in the student presence in practices helping to raise standards. The other major fortuitous activity was the development of the NHS R&D initiative which in the mid-1990s had several commissioned calls for research that spoke strongly to the academic general practice agenda and skill base. This, together with further funds to appoint two lecturers in general practice, marked the beginning of an ...

Boston Medical Center (BMC) is a 487-bed academic medical center located in Bostons historic South End, providing medical care for infants, children, teens and adults.
In this study, the authors report that close to half of the research leaders at U.S. medical schools do not consider their clinical research enterprises to be healthy or robust, and that they also question the overall quality of the clinical research being conducted.
Our study is the first to assess faculty attitudes, needs, and practice experiences with H/NP before and after implementing a solution to the H/NP needs that clinicians face. Furthermore, we are only the second group to explore physician acceptance, experiences, and knowledge of dietary supplements within an academic medical center [8, 13, 18].. Based upon responses obtained by our surveys, at our medical center, the NMCD tool appeared to be of greatest relevance to FCM providers. The openness and interest of FCM clinicians to nontraditional therapeutic alternatives may reflect a philosophical difference between FCM and other specialties, as this group of physicians tends to place great emphasis on developing, nurturing, and maintaining patient-centered relationships. Therefore, rather than simply disavowing use of all dietary supplements, it is important for FCM physicians to know about these alternatives in order to foster patient relationships. In contrast, our data found that our Med ...

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) recently released a commissioned report titled Advancing Healthcare Transformation: A New Era for Academic Nursing. By building on the Future of Nursing report from the Institute of Medicine, Manatt Health examined the opportunities for schools of nursing within or aligned with academic health centers (AHCs) to become firmly integrated in advancing health care transformation.. The AHCs are hubs of innovation for developing and testing new models of care. Nurses, of course, are key to the success of transforming health care in this new environment, especially as the Affordable Care Act facilitates experiments that move away from fee-for-service and toward value-based payments tied to metrics for quality, safety and value in the context of population health.. Over the past few years, schools of nursing have already begun contributing to these important changes through all aspects of our tripartite mission of research, education and practice. ...

The fact is that most doctors who graduate from medical school will not practice in a tertiary academic health center (AHC), but rather in the community, although the other fact is that a disproportionate number of them will choose specialties that are of little or no use in many communities that need doctors. They will, if they can (i.e., if their grades are high enough) often choose subspecialties that can only be practiced in the high-tech setting of the AHC or the other relatively small number of very large metropolitan hospitals, often with large residency training programs. As they look around at the institution in which they are being educated, they see an enormously skewed mix of specialties. For example, 10% of doctors may be anesthesiologists and there well may be more cardiologists than primary care physicians. While this is not the mix in world of practice, and still less the mix that we need to have for an effectively functioning health system, it is the world in which they are ...
When you have seen one AHSC, you have seen just one AHSC" - Academic Health Sciences Centre, National Task Force Final Report1. Australias health system is struggling to meet demand and expectations. Demand is driven by an increasing burden of chronic non-infectious disease associated with ageing.2 Expectations of cutting-edge care for all are set by the public and by government.3 Meeting these demands and expectations will be possible only with substantial effort in research and education as part of health service delivery. Separation of funding for research and education from the delivery of patient care diminishes the opportunity for mutually enhancing integration, and for expenditure efficiencies.4,5. ...

America, your bluff has been called…the verdict is in, and the old adage remains true: you cannot have your cake and eat it too (shocking news, I know). Clichéd as it may sound, that message rang true this morning as the annual assembly opened in a blaze of introspection and criticism of the status quo. The target? Rising healthcare costs. Even current levels of U.S. healthcare spending are unsustainable, yet we continue on a path of rising costs without adequate thought regarding the value of care provided.. The panel discussion featured Thomas Smith, Brad Stuart, and Rebecca Kirch, each presenting perspectives on the problem and fielding questions. Smith hit the nail on the head, pointing out that "value is missing, care is not optimal, and costs are rising unsustainably." He highlighted some staggering statistics from a sample of cancer patients at a major academic medical center (Dy, et al, 2011). Roughly 1/3rd received chemotherapy within 2 weeks of death, ~25% ended up on a ventilator, ...
