20, no. 9’’ Introduction As a result of deprived concern on the blood-pressure especially among patients suffering from Hypertension, Alexander et al conducted a study using Mobile Phone–Based Remote Patient Monitoring System for Management of Hypertension in Diabetic Patients. This research aimed at coming up with a system which dynamically engages hypertension patients in the process of home care. The study reveals that the ‘Mobile Phone–Based Remote Patient Monitoring System for Management of Hypertension in Diabetic Patients’ promotes blood pressure control in the society especially in the midst of patients with unrestrained hypertension since the test reveals a strong relative and long term positive response after several clinical trials (Kaplan & Ronald 2009). These results were in accord with the forecast since substantial technological advancement had been achieved to shed of limitations that have hindered physicians to have direct contact with the patients (Rasid & Woodward, 2008). However these results did not put several dimensions such as age, environment and status into considerations but to some level this study is tentative. The outcomes of the research reveal an insight in the importance of incorporating technology in health and medicine (Bosworth 2007). Nevertheless, a number of limitations should be carefully put inconsideration in deducing the study findings. APPRAISAL OF THE RESEARCH METHODS Though the results and findings of the entire research might sound convincing, there some elements of doubts left in thoughts, especially how the entire study was conducted. In Phase one of this study it is claimed to have employed two sets of investigative groups which dealt with patients and family specialists in an attempt to collect data. The data was to relate to diabetes and hypertension as well as personal perception of the patients towards Mobile Phone–Based Remote Patient Monitoring System and it general design (Kaplan & Ronald 2009). It is obvious that use of an interview could not have been employed alone in collecting information that was necessary in the design of a home blood Tele-management system since the numbers of individuals involved were too many and not all them were comfortable to be interviewed. There are several methods of data collection which are either qualitative or quantitative methods which could have been used in gathering information from this people and not by use of interview alone. Suggestively, the use of structured questionnaire could not have been avoided in this scenario (Kaplan & Ronald 2009). In the past, a number of studies have been methodically exclusively employed various research methods in order to gather the exact information of study. The use of several research methods widens the scope of study and builds credibility of the data gathered putting in mind the fact that data collected directly influence results and findings of the study. It is quite amusing that during this phase, there were two sets of groups to be studied and the only data collection method that was employed in both cases was use of interview ...

Summary of the author's theme and major points; The article Did You See That Guy in the Wheelchair Down the Pub? Interactions across Difference in a Public Place correctly focuses on the research centred on interactions between able-bodied people and people with physical disabilities (Mcneil 2007).
The process starts from when a patient enters a health care facility to seek medical attention for his condition up to the point he leaves the facility. In addition, it involves a nurse recording the full account of the nurse’s assessment and care, which is planned and provided for the patient, relevant information about the condition of the patient at any point (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009, p62).
In the process of qualitative inquiry, a wide variety of methods in collecting data is employed, with interviews considered to be one of the much well-used ones. However, it is easy to let in any form of bias when dealing with data obtained from interviews since it is possible for interviewers to influence the interviewees into answering questions rather different from what were expected (Wimpenny & Gass, 2000).
Moreover, an efficient Patient management system must allocate patients to their respective specialty treatment locations, by keeping the distance and other essential parameters vital to patient, at focus. For this kind of a PMR system, the various industry standards for medical data communication and storage such as HL7, ANSI X12 and ASTM CCR are discussed in this document.
It has been observed that ABC method is the most sought after innovation in the field of management accounting in the last two decades. The method was originated in the Unites States of America during the 1980s as an improved system to enable better cost allocation by means of classification of more costs as direct
