Electronic Health Record Patient Portal
The implementation of electronic health record systems is increasing at a rapid rate. The increases are due to the financial incentives offered by the Health Information and Technology for Economics and Clinical Health Act of 2009. Stage one of meaningful use mandates that patients be provided with an electronic copy of their health information at the end of the visit. Stage two of meaningful use requires that the patient has the ability to view their health information online, to download, and/or disseminate information about hospital admissions to their healthcare provider via a patient portal (Goldzweig, 2012).
The patient portal goal is to provide information between the patient and provider. Examples of the information exchange are upcoming appointments, medication lists, laboratory results, referral information, and other information as necessary (GCU, 2013). This paper will examine the electronic health record (EHR) patient portal implementation in a small rural Indian Health System in southern Arizona.
Currently, the EHR and the resource patient management system (RPMS), where most data’s entered, are fragmented. This fragmentation makes users have to switch between the applications in order to obtain needed information. The fragmentation creates safety issues that put the patient at risk for numerous medical errors. Examples of the risks would be the patient that comes to the Emergency Room and referred out to a larger healthcare facility. Upon discharge, the Discharge Planner receives a copy of the patient's discharge information and data inputs the information into the RPMS system. Additionally, the document is scanned into the record, yet when the…...

Portal to Lucid Dreaming

...trouble believing it. Start by bouncing or hopping along the dreamscape, gradually allowing yourself to get [pic] higher untill you soar above the clouds. Remember its a dream and you can't get hurt. If you want, you can use a flying aid. This can be anything from a jet pack to giant wings or even sitting on the back of a dragon. Making a dream scene morph in front of your eyes can be difficult largely because you dont expect it to happen. Once i wanted to eat in the middle of a desert. So i applied some lucid logic and imagined a restaurant behind me and there it was a second later. I went it and ordered a delicious meal for free. Sometimes i find a dream door and step through it by visualizing my destination. Mirrors also serve as portals or step into your own personal time machine for instant time travel to a new country or a planet. Find dream objects in your pocket, under a rock, in a drawer, or in a box. You can pretty much improvise as you dream on. Communicate with your subconscious by creating a dream figure that you're happy to talk to and then ask open and direct questions. You might be surprised by some of the answers that come right from the horses mouth. The most important thing is to truly believe that the dream scenary will change. Otherwise you might end up in a battle of logic with the conscious brain. Make it a habit to say to yourself every now and then 'this is a dream' so you don't lose lucidity. So what is the best way to have a lucid dream......

Portals school first so I covered up the hole with ivy growing on the 30 foot wall. Then I ran off to school. On my way home from school I went to the hole in the wall and peeked out. It was all darkness except for one tiny light in the distance. I finally gathered up the courage to step out into the darkness. Covering the hole behind me I slowly made my way to the light. It took me what seemed to be ten minutes to get there. The light seemed to be a portal of some kind. I had read about them in stories but never thought they actually existed. Stepping through the portal I covered my eyes the light was so bright. The brightness suddenly disappeared and I was standing in a round circular room with thousands or maybe millions of portals lining the wall. You could look up and as far as the eye could see were portals. There were platforms so I stepped on one and it said to me which way you would like to go. Up I replied. So the platform started to move up, it was getting so high I was starting to get dizzy from the never ending sight of portals. On the other side of the room (if you could even call it that) I saw something that caught my attention....

Patient Intake Process

...Understanding the Patient Intake Process Danielle Massie 11-3-2013 HCR 220 Pamela Kerby Patient Intake Process The process of patient intake can be time consuming and demanding if the flow of the office is not well-organized.   Furthermore, the intake process involves collecting personal information from the patient before the time of the visit. The information process includes asking if they were a previous patient before.   If yes or no, then one will continue preparing for the office visit.   One must gather the patient name, insurance information, contact number, and the reason for their visit.   All of these steps can assist one in providing the best quality care to their patients.   Looking further, the patient intake process must be effective to allow everyone to be seen in a timely matter.   In addition, one should learn the physician’s habits and needs because different procedures have fluctuating times; one must have a clear understanding of how to schedule a patient visit.   Having this knowledge can help with preventing overlapping appointments which will make the office traffic run smoothly.   In this situation, having patient’s wait time no more than 15 minutes is satisfactory, and when a patient has been waiting longer, one should be able to briefly explain the delay and offer to reschedule their appointment.   The fact of the matter is, when a patient is sitting for a long...

...of the most important thing when it comes to a health care. Dealing with patient with a different background, culture, beliefs is difficult. Learning about the different culture that we can face it today it can make anything easier and learn about them before making it a mistake toward a patient. Culture is a very important no matter what you. Dealing with patient that has a different belief, different background it is hard Finding ways to learn about the culture that is out there, specially the ones that the clinician has to see. To know their beliefs and the culture before the clinician makes a mistake. Some patients just listen to you, but they want to believe in what they want to believe. To support this group I would have to learn about the different culture that is out there before getting to work. As a hispanic person I can relate my culture with them, but not with the others culture. Making sure that I have the courage to ask about their culture before making a step. Also, making sure that it is ok to ask without having a difficult misunderstanding between myself and the patient. Throughout this there were be a lot of challenges that I am going to have to face it, Someone of them are knowing that there culture can affect my work, knowing that some of their culture don’t allow you to touch them, to hold there hand, some can be as I am been a woman, not taking the medications that the patient has to take.

Portal Frames

...Portal Frames Portal frames are generally low-rise structures, comprising columns and horizontal or pitched rafters, connected by moment-resisting connections. Resistance to lateral and vertical actions is provided by the rigidity of the connections and the bending stiffness of the members, which is increased by a suitable haunch or deepening of the rafter sections. This form of continuous frame structure is stable in its plane and provides a clear span that is unobstructed by bracing. They are very efficient for enclosing large volumes; therefore they are often used for industrial, storage, retail and commercial applications as well as for agricultural purposes. A portal frame building comprises a series of transverse frames braced longitudinally. The primary steelwork consists of columns and rafters, which form portal frames, and bracing. The end frame (gable frame) can be either a portal frame or a braced arrangement of columns and rafters. The light gauge secondary steelwork consists of side rails for walls and purlins for the roof. The secondary steelwork supports the building envelope, but also plays an important role in restraining the primary steelwork. The roof and wall cladding separate the enclosed space from the external environment as well as providing thermal and acoustic insulation. The structural role of the cladding is to transfer loads to secondary steelwork and also to restrain the flange of the purlin or rail to which it is......

I understand that failure to attribute material which is obtained from another source may be considered as plagiarism. (Signature of student) _______________________________ Summary Schools store and process increasingly more data about students and the subjects which they study. This often includes timetable, homework and attendance data amongst many other potential data sources. In many schools there currently exists no solution for students or their parents to view this data as information from one user friendly interface. The Arnewood School is a secondary school and sixth form college which has realised the need for this kind of information to me made available to students and parents via a secure, user friendly, single sign-on interface. This project aimed to produce a web portal which integrated and displayed information from preexisting and newly designed information systems in a way which was inline with the requirements of The Arnewood School and potential users. Due to the nature of developing such a system without having any knowledge of user requirements, a suitable methodology had to be selected which allowed for vague user requirements that could change at any time.

The Portal of Rouen Cathedral Light.

...Art 2 The piece I chose was “The Portal of Rouen Cathedral in Morning Light,” painted by French artist Claude Monet in 1894. The medium Monet chose for this piece was oil on a 100.3 by 65.1 cm canvas. This Rouen Cathedral itself is a Roman Catholic cathedral that is located in northwestern France, and was something Monet found interesting enough to paint while his stay in France. The Rouen Cathedral was a one of the few paintings that caught my eyes, as it is very unique. I instantly knew the medium that was chosen was oil paint as it had a bit of texture due to the layering, as well as a slight glaze. Another reason why I found this piece so interesting, and what makes it so beautiful, is that Monet captured the cathedral in an unconventional way; he did not just draw and outline the cathedral, but instead he blurred and layered his paint together and abstractedly outlined the cathedral. I also believe the overall palate and feel of this painting drew me to it as he uses beautiful, soft, colors that give it a light and delicate feel to it. The two elements that dominate in Monet’s work of art are color and texture. The hues he chose were pale yellow and violet, which are complementary colors, as well as blues and a bit of orange, which are also complementary colors. The shades of blue and violet have dullness to them, as they are neutralized and pale, giving the piece a bit of a quiet and solemn feel to it; however, the touch of pale yellow and orange here and there,......

Technology and Patient Care

...Technology in patient management has become progressively complex, altering how nursing care is provided. Before technology became a major tool in patient care, nurses depended greatly on their senses of touch, sight, hearing, and smell to monitor patient health status and to identify variations. “Over time, the nurses’ unaided senses were replaced with technology designed to detect physical changes in patient conditions. Consider the case of pulse oxymetry. Before its widespread use, nurses relied on subtle changes in mental status and skin color to detect early changes in oxygen saturation, and they used arterial blood gasses to confirm their suspicions. Now pulse oxymetry allows nurses to identify decreased oxygenation before clinical symptoms appear, and thus more promptly diagnose and treat underlying causes,” (Powell-Cope, G., et al. (n.d.). No one would deny that technology has had a significant impact on the healthcare industry. From new testing techniques to surgical equipment, today's medicine is very different from that of just 10 years ago. And now, with the explosion of the Internet and other digital communications, a wealth of health-related information is more accessible to patients than ever. Patients seek information immediately and often research both disease and cure on their own. In many cases, this results in better-informed patients and makes it possible for them to take greater responsibility for their healthcare. But in other cases, when patients......
