Write a 350- to 700-word paper in APA format describing two approaches or indicators to measuring patient outcomes. Measuring the quality of care is essential to being able to identify which areas of patient care need improvement. A positive patient outcome is one measure of quality. What role do health care workers play in determining quality care? I have done how much I could Iwonder if any one is there to help me in revising making it mor formal? Thank you

Two approaches to measuring patient outcomes are:
1) Applying process management to occupational medicine – this process involves frequency and timing of patient visits, referral patterns for consultation and diagnostic testing.
2) Communication: physician-employer-patient – when physicians takes the time to call their patient’s employers to report on the patient’s condition, (if after an initial visit, the case does not follow the expected course) or activity status, those physicians not only achieve better outcomes in terms of the amount of disability that their patients incur, they also find an increased degree of satisfaction from both patients and employers.
Health-care workers play very active roles in determining quality care for their patients. Some of these roles are:
1) Care givers make sure that the hospital or facility’s regulatory and monitoring frameworks are sufficient.
2) Health-care workers or providers help to maintain and strengthen the hospital or facility’s strong health and biomedical research infrastructure. 3) Care givers address the insufficient number of qualified health-care workers. 4) They give the consumers sufficient information on indicators of provider quality. 5) Health-care workers help to enhance the hospital or the facility’s health infrastructure. They also ensure its readiness in case of an emergency

There is very important role of health care workers for determining quality of care. The role is broad and duties are widely distributed in this regard starting from nurses, care assistants, support workers, doctors and even the administration. Every one is responsible with there own limitations and quality check procedures. The aims are wide to ensure good quality care being delivered to the patients, avoiding mal-practices and negligence by the health care workers. The most important factor is health care wokers act like a time to deliver and ensure quality care. The regulatory body or authority must be independent and helpful in the implementation of quality care procedures being delievered by the health care workers. I would say health care workers must contribute to the betterment of quality care in the health system which should be accessible to indoor, outdoor, emergency department patients as well as in clinics, care homes and other health centers. The quality care system is like a pyramid each and every health care ragarding the duties fits in that pyramid.
