Regular, interdisciplinary group meetings, "huddles," may be useful in improving communication among disciplines, resolving problems, and sharing information. Daily use of huddles may contribute to the development of a highly reliable health care organization. The purpose of this study was to describe safety huddles in relation to (1) problem type, (2) timeliness of resolution, (3) attendance of representatives from each discipline, (4) amount of information sharing, and (5) attendees' satisfaction with the process...

With the continuous rise of sentinel and adverse events due to ineffective communication, it is time for health care organizations to start implementing a focus on enhancing effective communication in which will, in turn, improve patient safety and experience, boosting the bottom line. This article identifies and discusses different communication protocols that can be used to enhance the consistency of more efficient and effective communication within a health care organization to overall improve patient care and patient satisfaction...

Lean Daily Management (LDM) is a performance improvement process used by health care organizations to reduce waste and increase value. Designed to transform health care professionals into organizational problem solvers, LDM tools have been used throughout the health care industry, but full integration of this performance improvement initiative has largely evaded health care organizations. To demonstrate the effectiveness of LDM, research was conducted to evaluate the costs associated with product returns and overnighted products as monitored by a materials management department, which found that these were specific areas where excessive resources were frequently used...

As health care moves to a value-based system, the need for team-based models of care becomes increasingly important to adequately address the growing number of clinical quality metrics required of health care providers. Finding ways to better engage certified medical assistants (CMAs) in the process allows providers to focus on more complex tasks while improving the efficiency of each office visit. Although the roles and responsibilities for CMAs across the specialties can vary widely, standardizing the work can be a helpful step in scaling best practices across an institution...

Effective and efficient methods of succession planning are integral to the success of organizations across the health care system. We explored current health organizations' senior leadership transition processes. Participants were in senior level leadership and decision-making positions in hospitals within Ontario, Canada. Most of the participants did not have formal transition plans and instead relied on the human resources department to plan for succession. We discuss these processes through three themes: (1) preplanning for a transition, (2) the transition process, and (3) barriers to successful transitions...

Smartphone use in clinical settings and in medical education has been on the rise, benefiting both health care and health care providers. Studies have shown, however, that some health care facilities and providers are reluctant to switch to smartphones due to the threat of mixing personal apps with clinical care applications and the possibility that distraction created by smartphone use could lead to medication errors and errors linked to procedures, treatments, or tests. The purpose of this research was to examine the effects of smartphones in a clinical setting and for medical education, to determine their overall impact...

Priscilla L Phillips, Daniel Young, Debashish Chakravarthy
Chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) use helps reduce hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). Chlorhexidine gluconate effectiveness can be reduced by use of skin care products. Although laboratory work can be performed to prove compatibility, such work has limitations. The purpose of this study was to compare HAI rates when CHG antiseptic wipes were used in conjunction with a silicone- and micronutrient-based skin care product line (SMSP) and when CHG wipes were used without the SMSP. Using commercial distribution data, 17 hospitals that purchased both CHG wipes and SMSP were identified...

It is expected that the number of people living with diabetes rise especially in low- and middle-income countries. In Iran, more than four million adults have diabetes mellitus, and self-management education is essential for effective diabetes self-care. This study aimed to investigate the effect of self-management education with telephone follow-up in diabetic patients of rural areas of Fars province in Lamerd city, Iran. In this experimental study, 64 participants were randomly assigned to intervention and control groups (32 patients for each group)...

Many who enter management are ready and willing to accept the benefits of their positions, but not all are readily accepting the full responsibilities of leadership. All too frequently, modern leadership seems self-serving, with the needs and desires of the leaders taking precedence over the needs of the followers and even the needs of the clients or customers. True leadership, however, should primarily benefit the followers rather than the leader. Leaders lead and followers follow for essentially the same reason-fulfillment of needs-so leaders and followers are fundamentally little different from each other...

Implementation of major organizational change initiatives presents a challenge for long-term care leadership. Implementation of the INTERACT® (Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers) quality improvement program, designed to improve the management of acute changes in condition and reduce unnecessary emergency department visits and hospitalizations of nursing home residents, serves as an example to illustrate the facilitators and barriers to major change in long-term care. As part of a larger study of the impact of INTERACT® on rates of emergency department visits and hospitalizations, staff of 71 nursing homes were called monthly to follow-up on their progress and discuss successful facilitating strategies and any challenges and barriers they encountered during the yearlong implementation period...

A comprehensive review of the literature was completed to investigate college student-athletes' perceptions regarding the long-term effects of concussions. Based on the findings, it was determined that there is a need for more education among student-athletes regarding this topic. This was a quantitative, cross-sectional, nonexperimental study with a descriptive design. A survey with 7 demographic and 17 Likert-type statements was collected from 100 student-athletes in a Midwestern college at their specified team practice sites for data collection...

User participation in the development of a system is universally prescribed as an effective strategy to ensure the success of the resultant system. However, the existing literature on the merits of user participation only provides equivocal evidence. Various analyses of this literature point out that this equivocal evidence may be due to inconsistent operational measures of the user participation and system success constructs. Planned organizational change and participative decision making, the underlying paradigms of user participation construct, suggest that the development of some information systems may require blending of users' system-related functional expertise and developers' technical expertise to ensure system success...

As millions of individuals who have been given a diagnosis of attention deficit disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder enter the workforce, more individuals with these mental impairments are filing claims with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as amended in 2008 by the ADA Amendments Act. The ADA forbids employment discrimination based on an individual's disability and also requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities...

New skill sets and improvement disciplines are constantly arising across the vast industrial and academic landscape of modern economies. Prescient hospital administrators are routinely searching for new and innovative ways to improve care, care delivery, safety, quality, and access. But, it can be challenging to identify those emerging skill sets, which will likely have lasting effect and will provide strong return on investment, from passing fads with little capacity to move performance benchmarks for a hospital...

Although people in the social media age can access health information easier, they have difficulty judging conflicting rational information or summarizing the large amounts of health information available. Conflicting health information occurs when contrary assertions or information about a certain health issue comes from different information sources. This study examined the background knowledge and the current phenomenon of why conflicting health information occurs in real-world conditions. We also reviewed causes and solutions by reviewing the literature...
