SYSTEMS THEORY2Systems TheoryThe systems theory represents as a multi-layered set of interacting and interrelatedenvironment in forming a unified whole or method serving a common purpose (Johnson, Miller, & Horowitz, 2008). Today, as the healthcare industry constantly changing due to the government rules and regulations, the integration of the system theory within our organization and different departments is prime to its efficiency and achievement. The purpose of this paper is to address an issue in the healthcare organization using open-system perspective with the integration of the systems theory model to accomplish an intended goal for feasible solutions. Health Care Organization Using Open-System PerspectiveBy utilizing an open system, the organization continuously adjusts and interchange ideas from external sources (Business Dictionary.com, 2013). A flexible opensystem frequently recognizes criticism from other surroundings, assess the plans, modify internal systems as necessary to accomplish the goals, and then convey the required information to the original sources. Meyer and O’Brien-Pallas (2010) proposed the open-system perspective as a method to incorporate the organization and the Nursing Services Delivery Theory (NSDT) in improving nursing care. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) department with the explanation of the elements (input, output, throughput, cycles of energy, and negative feedback) will be analyzed based on the NSDT (Meyer & O’Brien-Pallas, 2010). The first concept is the inputs. Inputs defined as energy or raw data achieved from outside setting (Meyer & O’Brien-Pallas, 2010). An example of inputs in the NICU are people such as nurses, physician, and patients; resources, materials, and information applying within the inflow (Meyer & O’Brien-Pallas, 2010).
SYSTEMS THEORY3While throughput, according to Meyer and O’Brien-Pallas (2010) explained as a technique to interpret raw materials or energy transformed into goods or services. Examples include nurses planning, assessing patients, and analyzing laboratory results.
