Currents Trends in Healthcare
I this paper I will be describing the process of selecting the current trend or solution to implement into an organization, give 3 useful resources for identifying current trends in health care management industry, give 2 resources that I did not use but reviewed, and explain what was a good resources and what was not (CTU,2015).
Today’s health care industry is continuously evolving, there is always something new being added, changed and/or updated. The current trend that I will be using is technology. Technology is ever changing in today’s world therefore it is continuously evolving in the health care industry. In order for an organization to continue to be successful and keep its doors open it needs to stay up to date with the current trends and implement the ones that apply to their needs. Technology is changes in all areas of the world but as it pertains to the health care industry it has changed drastically. We have gone from paper patient heath records to electronic health records now we have smart phones that have apps that can be used to check a number of health issues. When looking at technology we are looking at a wide range of issues that can go into this category. For example the new apps for the smart phones that allows a patient to check his/her blood pressure, security for the electronic health record, and the use of cloud services (Health care IT News, 2015).
In order to identify the current trends in healthcare management industry the following resources where used but are not limited to the CDC (Centers of Disease Control), HHS (Department of Health and Human Services) and the AMA (American Medical Association). Other resources that I found to be useful but did not chose to use where the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI).
