The impact can also be a negative one. There is pressure on the staff who care directly for the patients must provide quality care. These pressures can impact the way nurses work including their interactions with their patients ("Medicare Reimbursement Reduction due to Poor Hospital Quality and Patient Safety," n.d.). The quality of care is the basis on how facilities are paid, not the number of services ("Medicare Reimbursement Reduction due to Poor Hospital Quality and Patient Safety," n.d.). This can also have a financial impact on healthcare facilities. The facility can spend more on supplies than their payment from the Centers for Medicare Services. Documentation becomes important when it comes to healthcare (and their reimbursement). Standard terminologies are approved by an authoritative body (Hebda & Czar, 2013, p. 298) . These terminologies are structured and controlled languages (Hebda & Czar, 2013, p. 298) . These terminologies when used in healthcare are called healthcare terminologies standards (Hebda & Czar, 2013, p. 298). Electronic health records rely on standard terminologies to become developed and implemented (Hebda & Czar, 2013, p. 298). Nursing practice and patient centered care is improved when there is a use of standard terminology and exchange of data. When nursing practice is improved, so is patient care.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
