Health system human resource departments are putting new requirements, paperwork, and processes in place to meet new Joint Commission standards for treating students like employees who onboard at the beginning of employment. These processes have significantly increased the workload of experiential education offices and present an additional burden to students. In an attempt to streamline these processes, health systems are contracting with third-party tracking and placement organizations. Converting this process to an electronic one (such as what third-party organizations offer) could present advantages; however, there are many concerns about going through a third-party organization that could control placement decisions...

Despite the U.S. substantially outspending peer high income nations with almost 18% of GDP dedicated to health care, on any number of statistical measurements from life expectancy to birth rates to chronic disease, 1 the U.S. achieves inferior health outcomes. In short, Americans receive a very disappointing return on investment on their health care dollars, causing economic and social strain. 2 Accordingly, the debates rage on: what is the top driver of health care spending? Among the culprits: poor communication and coordination among disparate providers, paperwork required by payors and regulations, well-intentioned physicians overprescribing treatments, drugs and devices, outright fraud and abuse, and medical malpractice litigation...

REVIEW

One of the most important causes of asthma morbidity, hospital admissions, and death is non-adherence to prescribed therapy. It is generally assumed that adherence rates can be increased with asthma education, although well conducted studies have not always supported this assumption. Education can be achieved, or can fail, in many ways and no two patients have the same needs or perceived needs. In order to better understand what children with asthma and their parents or caregivers would desire as support from their physician providers, we conducted a survey of nearly 1000 parents of asthmatic children affiliated with the Asthma and Allergy Network...

Influenza vaccination is the most effective way to reduce influenza infection and related complications. Unfortunately, vaccination coverage remains suboptimal. The addition of pharmacists as immunizers may assist in improving vaccine coverage. The experiences of patients who have received influenza vaccines from pharmacists is an important consideration for jurisdictions considering the addition of pharmacists as immunizers. We describe the reported experiences of recipients of influenza vaccinations by pharmacists in the community pharmacy setting in Nova Scotia, Canada...

Craig Robertson
This article uses textbooks and advertisements to explore the formal and informal ways in which people were introduced to vertical filing in the early twentieth century. Through the privileging of "system" an ideal mode of paperwork emerged in which a clerk could "grasp" information simply by hand without having to understand or comprehend its content. A file clerk's hands and fingers became central to the representation and teaching of filing. In this way, filing offered an example of a distinctly modern form of information work...

Improving early discharges may improve patient flow and increase hospital capacity. We conducted a national survey of academic medical centers addressing the prevalence, importance, and effectiveness of early-discharge initiatives. We assembled a list of hospitalist and general internal medicine leaders at 115 US-based academic medical centers. We emailed each institutional representative a 30-item online survey regarding early-discharge initiatives. The survey included questions on discharge prioritization, the prevalence and effectiveness of early-discharge initiatives, and barriers to implementation...

Objective: The Current Opioid Misuse Measure (COMM) is a commonly used self-report instrument to identify and monitor aberrant opioid-related behavior in chronic pain patients on opioid therapy. However, the length of the COMM may limit its clinical utility. Additionally, this paper-and-pencil screener requires hand scoring, which increases paperwork and staff burden. Therefore, the current study presents development of the "COMM-9," a brief electronically administered form of the COMM...
