According to the Performance Measurement and Management of Healthcare Professionals: Some Up-to-date Issues, “Healthcare professionals are increasingly held accountable for standards of care that they provide…The science of performance dimension and performance management of professional activity is a new and rapidly expanding one. Advocates of an actively managed approach to quality improvement often underestimate the tensions associated with promoting change amongst traditionally autonomous professionals who work in complex organizations,” (Marshall & Davies, 2000).
Management 6 The “End Result System”, introduced in 1910 by Ernest Codman, a Harvard Medical School Surgeon, “advocates that hospitals should examine whether the services provided to patients were beneficial and address the reasons for failure…and articulated three core principles of quality assurance: 1) examining quality measures to determine if problems are patient-, system-, or clinician-related; 2) assessing the frequency and prevalence of quality deficiencies; and 3) evaluating and correcting deficiencies so that they do not reoccur (Cooper, 1999),” (Buchbinder & Shanks, 2011). “This program established “minimum standards” that focused on the quality of care within hospitals, including the 1) organizing of hospital medical staffs; 2)restricting of medical staff membership to well-trained, competent, and licensed physicians; 3)framing of policies and procedures to ensure regular staff meetings and clinical reviews; 4)recording of medical histories, physical exams, and laboratory tests; and 5) developing diagnostic and treatment facilities under physician oversight (Luce, Bindman, & Lee, 1994),” (Buchbinder & Shanks, 2007). Conclusion It is essential to have technology in the healthcare system. Technology creates a better and faster way to help and promote health among patients by physicians and medical staff. Technology plays a major part of the healthcare industry reaching from Electronic Healthcare Records to equipment used for treating and diagnosing patients. Technology is a field that constantly advances to promote better efficient service. However, strategic planning is necessary to provide the company or organization meet short and long time goals but also includes the most efficient and newest way of technology.
Management 7 It is essential that the staff of the organization share ethical values within they try to provide the best quality performance they can on daily bases. The use information Technology aides in the quality of healthcare it can help lower costs over the long run and minimize patient injury and mistakes by producing fewer human errors, including those that can be fatal. The authors Gelijians and Rosenberg explained in their article that the recognition that medical technology is, is a critical element in the quality, as well as the cost of health care, has renewed interest in the factors shaping technological change or innovation in medicine. At a more general level, one can observe that medical innovation is stimulated by advances in scientific and engineering knowledge, on the one hand, and by the potential demand for health-improving technology, on the other.
