Homework Help: How does this sound?

Posted by Jen on Sunday, May 17, 2009 at 9:22pm.

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?

How does this sound so far? Anything you think that can be added, I'm having trouble with this assignment. Thanks in advance for your help :o)

One approach to measure a patients’ outcome would be to follow-up with the patient. Having the patient come back for a few follow-up appointments and calling the patient to see how he or she is doing is a good way to keep up with the patient. Following up with the patient also shows that you care. Another approach to determine the patients’ outcome would be to pay attention to detail. Paying attention to detail assures the patient you are paying attention and are more capable of following the patients’ needs and preparing the right course of treatment.
Measuring the quality of care is essential to being able to identify which areas of patient care need improvement. A positive patient outcome is essential for building up the hospital or Dr. Office’s reputation. Patients are now able to fill out survey’s either before or after they had their treatment to determine the quality of care that was given. Survey’s help provide much needed feedback in order to become better or do things differently.
Health care workers are a major part in determining a patient’s quality of care. Health care workers are the main one that takes care of the patients, such as; patient aids, RN’s, doctors, etc. If poor treatment is given, the facility or hospital can be at risk of losing patients. Relationships need to be built up as the patient continues to go to a certain clinic or hospital, and that is how they build rapport with their patients. If quality care is not given, the hospitals and facilities can lose patients.
