Management of Patient Record Documentation Discussion
Technology in health care continues to advance, yet there is still a time and place for paper documentation. One of the most common paper documents is a patient intake form. For this week’s assignment, you will examine the functionality of this type of documentation, and offer improvements.
For this assignment, you will create a patient registration form. You may use an existing form as a guide, and make revisions as necessary when creating your document.
Your form should be one page in length, formatted in a clean, professional manner.
Key data that will be used in EMR reporting should be in boldface text.
On a separate page, briefly summarize why each of the key data points are important for reporting purposes.
Sustainability Program Discussion
Discussion 2: Sustainability
Which of the following programs is more sustainable?
A funder gives money to groups that will buy food and distribute it to low-income families.
A funder gives money to groups that will create community gardens with resident participants in low-income neighborhoods who will continue the program in years to come.
Given the realities of international financial volatility, funding for public health programs may be abruptly discontinued, leaving programs unfinished and participants underserved. Public health professionals need to anticipate how a program will be sustained when the funding or program term ends. Not only is this better for the program itself, but it provides more lasting benefits for society.
For this Discussion, review the media titled Empowering Women. Consider how the program executives raise funds to sustain their program despite a small operating budget. Also, consider some of the serious ramifications for social change in Belize if the program was not sustainable.
Read the following scenario: My program is Child Obesity Prevention Program focus and implementation in school setting and focus on African American Children.
You receive funding for your program (child obesity prevention program implemented in school) After 3 years, the funding ends. Consider how you can sustain your program past the initial funding of your program, and determine the long-term impact it might have on the community.
BY DAY 4
Post an explanation of the importance of sustainability to your chosen public health program (SPP). Then, explain the strategies you might incorporate into your program to ensure sustainability in post-funding years. Finally, explain how your public health program, if implemented, could promote long-term social change.
