Information Systems in Health Care

Information systems in healthcare is made to improve management and efficiency of hospital services and it's management. As the years have progressed the internet has played a more and more vital part in our daily lives. This is also evident in the medical field as well. The increase in technological advances over the years has improved and pushed healthcare into one of the top researched areas. Information systems plays a big role in health care and how it is operated. IS are used in communicating, storing, processing, and capturing important information in a more timely manner for better decision making and more accurate data. This has made healthcare more efficient and better to coordinate in healthcare all over the board. Communication and behavioral changes in patients, consumers, organizational, and providers has been evident at all levels due to innovations in healthcare thanks to information systems. The changes that are obvious in communication/behavior are improved patient care, quicker information retrieval, faster sharing of information, more efficient decision-making, less medical errors, more storage room for data and records, and improved information reporting. Even though we see how big of a role healthcare plays it's importance has been underrepresented. However in the past few years interest in healthcare has increased. The healthcare industry is so diverse from treatment options, patients, and professional roles such as nurses, doctors, and specialist. Because of this diversity healthcare branches off into many different disciplines such as public health, business, economics, and sociology.
Healthcare influences the quality of our lives and how we function within society. “Healthcare mistakes have serious consequences…...

What similarities and differences exist within the team? Within the team we have found that due to our similar back grounds in the military we approach learning in a lot of the same ways. As a group we brain storm and analyze every aspect of the problem to come up with the solution. Although some of us are easier to persuade to one idea to another, all of us require justification in order to allow it to pass the group. Alberto, Marvin, and Mike all use the no non sense approach to problems and class while Tracy tends to look at it more as a 3D more than one way to skin a cat type of out look. It seems that we feed off of one another in a group environment. When one of the team members doesn’t understand the others try to explain it in the easiest way possible. Through the discovery wheel and intelligences exercises we found that the team pretty much has the same learning style and curve. It isn’t hard for any of the members to get their input in or speak up to the other members if there is a difference of opinion. With the exercises so far we have had no problem coming together as a team. 2. What are the advantages of having diversity on a team? What challenges might the team face because of diversity?

Team Building

...Team Building First let’s define the word team. Team is a group of people with a common, collective goal. A team is not based on one person. Like the saying “There is no 'I' in TEAM”. Forming successful teams can become a challenge. It’s a challenge because you have to get all the right people in one group. A bad apple can spoil the whole group. To have a successful team, a leader must have background knowledge of everyone on the team so that he will be able to help each one in a respectable manner, and it will help also later if a problem might occur among them. Team Building plays an important role in the workplace. Some team building experiences are successful and some are unsuccessful. Team building incorporates team work. Team work is when employees put aside their personal goals and preferences and work together cooperatively to achieve the team’s goal. Team Building also forms friendships and trust between employees. When the team is on the same page, everything runs smoothly. The steps a team leader takes to select workable teammates for a project can be challenging and frustrating task. Leaders should follow the four steps to create an effective team building: 1. Assess, 2. Plan, 3. Execute, 4. Evaluate. Step 1: Assess the teams developmental needs base on strengths and weaknesses by creating a lists with different categories. Step 2: Plan team-building activities based on the needs identified; referring to the entire no’s the team had. Step 3: Execute the......

Building Casino

...more countries starting to build casinos, the issue of whether it is benefited or harmful to the population has been brought into focus. Now it is commonly held that building casinos officially will trigger a lot of tragedies and social unrest, but I conceive differently. Not only can it bring many economic benefits, but also it can solve some social problems. The first reason contributing to the common opinion is that people have more chances to gamble and take great risks to get the opportunity to get rich in one fell swoop. As a result, they may lose their shirts then they are highly indebted. Even more, gamblers may engage in the activities of theft and robbery to get bookies. However, the serious consequences by addiction of gambling should not be justifiable reasons to stop governments to build casinos. It is a matter of individual unsteady will. If the thing which makes you addicted or has some risks and speculations should not be allowed, stocks, property markets and so on, likewise should be banned. Actually, people can realize that life is full of risks through gambling which is an early warning to life as long as you can handle it. Another argument from supporters of common opinion is that gambling occupies a part of labor force, which impacts on production and causes economic loss. Nonetheless, building casinos can increase new jobs for unemployed people, reducing the factors of social unrest, and can reduce national burden since domestic casinos prevent......

...their most constructive input to enable me to complete this assignment successfully. Last but not least, I would like to thank my family members for their support and assistance in gathering the information for me and helping me financially to conduct this assignment. Introduction The heritage buildings in Malaysia are unique and attractive. Their designs can be traced from the Malay, Chinese, Indian, European and Middle Eastern cultures brought by traders who came to migrate or trade in the 16th century . These buildings are valuable assets to this country for their historical values and tourism potential. Heritage buildings in Malaysia may possibly be classified into six categories; namely shop houses, commercial buildings, religious buildings, private houses, palaces and institutional buildings. Most of these buildings are located in the commercial or highly populated areas like major cities and towns in Malaysia. Studies have shown that the structures of these buildings are still solid and intact, and safe for occupation until today. Aim With a long colonial history, Malaysia has a diverse range of heritage buildings and sites which still exist until today. Multi-racial community owes its heritage to this city when various communities settled in and around the town as a result of trade and labor since the British administration period. The study was focused on the area of Little India(Brickfields), Kuala Lumpur, an......

Building a Structure

...I have been given a grant to make an existing building state of the art by running fiber throughout the space. For this project I will choose an office building as an example of what type of hardware that will be needed inside and outside of the building to accommodate the fiber. I will discuss some safety procedures, and some regulations and standards that will apply to this install that may have not been regarded to when installing copper wire. In this setup, there will be an FTTB (Fiber-to-the-building) passive optical network. On the outside of the building the distribution cables will supply the network access point (NAP) which in turn supplies fiber through drop cables to the buildings NID or Network Interface Device. On the inside of the building in the equipment room will house patch panels and other equipment necessary to support the network. On the outside of the building fiber can reach the building either via an aerial method which run along existing poles that may already carry electrical power lines or by means of direct burial. These methods may also be used in the event I ever needed to expand our current network to another building in future upgrades. “Cables in aerial installations must be able to withstand loading from high winds, ice, birds and climbing animals, and even windblown debris such as branches.” (Oliviero, 2010) If I choose a direct burial route, one advantage over an aerial installation would be that the fiber is less prone to the weather......

This has made it quite imperative for contracting parties to analyse project delays for purposes of making right decisions on potential time and/or cost compensation claims. Over the years, existing delay analysis techniques (DATs) for aiding this decision-making have been helpful but have not succeeded in curbing the high incidence of disputes associated with delay claims resolutions. A major source of the disputes lies with the limitations and capabilities of the techniques in their practical use. Developing a good knowledge of these aspects of the techniques is of paramount importance in understanding the real problematic issues involved and their improvement needs. This paper seeks to develop such knowledge and understanding (as part of a wider research work) via: an evaluation of the most common DATs based on a case......

It is one of the early industries developed in Bengal based on its old business of building boats and sea vessels. Bangladesh has a strong background in building ships since ancient times. Many countries of Asia and Europe regularly bought ships built in Chittagong.       Bangladesh has a strong background in building ships since ancient times. It is quite natural in that Bangladesh has more than 200 rivers with a total length of about 22,155km plus a long coast line on the Bay of Bengal. It is little known today that Bangladesh was the center of building ocean-going vessels in Asia between the 15th and 17th century.        In the early 19th century, the shipyards of Chittagong built many commercial ships of up to 1,000 tons and also British navy vessels that participated in the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Due to this historic prosperous background and also a natural geographical advantage, there are presently more than 200 shipbuilding and ship-repair yards in Bangladesh. | Ship Building Industry in Bangladesh | Prospect of Shipbuilding Industry in Bangladesh:       The history of indigenous shipbuilding in Bangladesh goes back a long way.

Farm Buildings

...Farm Buildings and Controlled Environments Lori Matthews S20000832 Assessment 1 1. (i) One method of measuring temperature is a thermistor sensor. This instrument contains a mixture of sulphides or oxides, or metals (iron, cobalt or copper) which have a high resistance at low temperatures but the resistance decreases quickly when warm. Therefore when the temperature changes, the resistance of the thermistor changes in a predictable way. This method of measuring temperature is easy to use and is inexpensive. They are not used for high temperatures, but in temperature ranges where they work they are widely used. ii) Humidity in farm buildings can be measured using a capacitive film sensor. This is a capacitive thin film polymer sensor consisting of a substrate which has a thin film of polymer placed between two conductive electrodes. An absorptive metal electrode coats the sensing surface to protect it from contamination and exposure to condensation. The substrate used is usually glass or ceramic. The thin film polymer either absorbs or releases water vapour as the relative humidity of the air increases or decreases. These sensors provide high accurancy, excellent long-term stability negligible hysteresis. They are resistant to most chemicals and are not permanently damaged by liquids. iii) One instrument that is used to record air velocity is a thermal anemometer; also referred to as a ‘hot-wire’. This tool is based on the fact that......

Team Building

...Team building Team building makes the working scene easier. Many companies reported that after team building the employees have better trust within one another, eased conflicts, increased collaboration, and improved communication. There are tons of different examples of team building exercise. You can schedule team building activities in the workplace and in your local community for your employees (Heathfield, S). Having a lunch in with your company can be the perfect place to start building. The workers get to eat then after they are done eating the look at the bottom of their plates and see what number or letter is on it. Which from that letter, different groups are made. Next, give the groups a problem or task to discuss and solve. After the groups are done, allow the to present to the others what they have done. Some companies set a side for the workers to have an on-site work class. For example, the preschool teachers at Temple Dor Dorim’s early childhood center have three days a year they have “teacher work days.” During those days they have a meeting which teachers them different ways to teacher their classes. The reason why they have three days like that is because they have three different age levels: toddlers, nursery, and pre-k. Each meeting one level “teaches” the others how they do their daily routine. When you form new teams, sometime you need ice breakers. Some easy icebreakers are the circle pass and the human knot. The circle pass is when you......

Green Building

...design schools in the nation, Cal Poly has an obligation to expand yet still minimize the effects this growth has on the environment. They believe that Student Housing North should be a green building which is built with certain sustainability standards in mind. Some of these standards are using local or regional building materials to cut down on the cost and pollution of transportation and the use renewable energy resources efficiently. These standards are both qualities that help a building obtain LEED certification. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green building rating system developed by the United States Green Building Council. LEED was created to transform the building market and raise consumer awareness of the benefits of building sustainably. Companies apply for certification and after LEED assesses such factors as water conservation, materials, and energy resources, they award different levels of certification. Green buildings and obtaining LEED certification is a growing trend with commercial and residential developers. Building more for sustainability has become popular among universities as well. Cal Poly doesn’t actually have any LEED certified buildings due to the lack of funding for the certification process but some aspects of newer buildings on campus meet LEED standards. Advocates of a sustainable campus believe that Cal Poly has the opportunity to become the forerunner of green design and sustainability by using Student......

Building a Computer

...Building a Computer Miakai Robinson Computer Ethics August 6, 2011 Building a Computer Table of Contents Abstract 3 Paper 4 References 9 Abstract If you've never done it before, the idea of building a computer from the ground up can seem very intimidating—but it's one of the most satisfying projects a tech enthusiast can take on. Being more of a software gal than a hardware geek myself, I was the only Life hacker editor who had never built a PC from scratch. So when I needed a new PC late last year, I took the plunge and built my custom system. I'm so glad I did—the project turned out to be one of my proudest accomplishments of 2010. If you've cracked open your PC before to install a new hard drive or TV capture card, but you've never built a whole new system from the ground up, it's not as difficult as you might think. Here are my notes for first-timers who want to build instead of buy their next computer. Why Build Instead of Buy "But computers are so cheap these days," you say. "Why waste the time and energy building your own system when you can get a great machine fully assembled and shipped to your door?" That's a great question. Building your own PC will not save you time. It might save you money, but that's not even the best reason to do it. For me, it was a fantastic hands-on educational experience. It gives me a deep sense of satisfaction every single day when I press the power button on my tower, watch it light up,......

Kitchenette Building Raisin in the Sun

...Final Draft In the poem, Kitchenette Building, written by Gwendolyn Brooks, and the stage directions in A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry, both authors effectively demonstrate how the use of personification in the setting can create the the idea of dreams. The authors use figurative language to personify the setting into describing how dreams can not come true because of life getting in the way. In the poem, Kitchenette Building, Gwendolyn Brooks describes a run down building that is shared by many people. The reader can infer that the setting of this building is worn out, tired, and unappealing. The building is described as being “grayed in, and gray['d out]” (Brooks, 2). The building itself has not physically worn itself down, but Brooks uses personification to demonstrate how tired and gray the building appears. She uses the color gray to create an image in the reader's mind of a dull and boring building. All signs of life and hope have been sucked out of the building that even “yesterday’s garbage [was] ripening in the hall” (Brooks, 23). The author adds this to show how the building has no sign of life, and there is only ripening trash in an empty hallway. This represents the harsh reality of life, and that dreams do not easily come true while in this lifeless setting. She wants to demonstrate that life has it's ugly obstacles in the way. Not only does she use personification for the building, but Brooks also used it when describing the symbol of a dream.......

Take the two red Roof pieces and place them on the perpendicular blue two by four block on the end so that the 8 of the bottom holes are exposed and you can still see four of the blue dots are visible. 6. Do the same thing with the other red Roof piece, only have the piece face in the same direction as the other red Roof piece, leave four white dots showing on the end and have the red Roof piece cover two of the dots on the parallel yellow piece. Continue this until you complete your kit or until you have 20 steps. (Note to facilitators: As you develop this list, you should simultaneously construct your Standard Model so that it is available for side-by-side comparison at the end of the exercise. Continue building your list based on the specific kits that you purchased or the general supply of LEGO blocks -- you can purchase large tubs of them relatively inexpensively). Present the exercise in a dry and straightforward manner. At the end of the exercise (and you can stop anytime prior to completion), ask participants to discuss what happened to their team and in the activity. You can also compare the finished products to that of a pre-assembled Standard Model to make the point of how difficult things can be even with a straightforward task when the vision is unclear. Jo Clarke and Darin Ulmer both had somewhat similar suggestions. Debriefing questions might include: Was there any pressure to perform? How did pressure to perform show itself?......

Developing trust in my workplace is a two-way-duty, responsibility of the management, as well as the employees. Trust begets trust. If I am not capable of keeping my team members trust, then I have no right to expect them to trust me, and even more so within my work place. Workplace ethics at Sirus Automotive demands that I be absolutely honest in my dealings within the company and to my team members. Earning Trust- When I had to start building and maintaining trust with my team members I needed to understand that by me making tall claims about having transparent administration, was not enough. My team members were hired at Sirus because of their skill set and educational qualifications, I had to remember that they were not born yesterday. They are all intelligent enough to understand if something is not quite right. So I had to give them credit and not insult their intelligence. I had to keep the functioning of the section running as smooth and efficient as I told them it would be and to keep them as stress free as possible as to making their job easier through efficiency. If this would not have been the case they would have felt exploited and the feeling of mistrust and discontent would have begun to set in. Confidentiality- Of paramount importance to me in the building of trust within my team and all other employees. With the company......
