I chose this goal because my company is transitioning from a paper to electronic patient records to meet meaningful use requirements set out by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical health Act. The organizational planning goal focuses on staffing and management of patients’ flow. I chose this as a goal because poor staffing is problem that adversely affects a health care provider’s ability to provide quality care. An insufficiency of staff members to manage the on-call system has led to lots of complaints from patients. The objective of my organizational goal is to find a solution to help the on-call system function more efficiently, preventing staff burn out and improving patient care.
Goal 1: Leadership development
My Leadership development goal focuses on learning how to use the Advance Care Web Portal to search patient information, and communicate with scheduling, management, and pharmaceutical staff. The Web Portal is also used for creating and submitting nursing documentation. This knowledge will help me in identifying how patients can manage their health care without relying on the traditional office visit. Furthermore, I will be in a better position to use technology to link with the patients in different ways, including use of online platform to provide patient registration forms, sending appointment information anywhere anytime, use turn on/off features to realize full customization and to share lad data and results the HER of the Cerner.
