Seasonal Allergies, comment

May 24, 2013

I do think having having thing available electronically is very helpful, but at the same time I do not.The doctor may read what you have written him in an email but may not completely understand it. It is good to have oral communication available if need. If he were to have a question, he could call you but having a person right there in front of you is much easier I believe. Everything is becoming electronic now and days, so I better start getting used to it.

Electronic Communication, comment

May 22, 2013

RE: Electronic Communication

My comment regarding Electronic Communication is that its a wonderful idea. Currently at my job now we are able to access the hospitals system to view the accounts of patient we are both servicing. This allows us to see there chart and why they were admitted into the hospital and what was done and so on. Its just so nice to be able to see the information our self rather then calling the hospital and speaking with the patients RN or case manager. The electronic communication really has made the process getting the durable medical equipment to the patient much faster.

Seasonal Allergies

April 22, 2013

I have two children who suffer from seasonal allergies. Their symptoms are similar, usually characterized by rhinitis and frequent sinus infections. These recurrent problems often lead to frequent trips to the doctor’s office. In the past, I’ve been asked by the doctor to keep a hand written account of their symptoms to take back to the office. I believe that if the information could be sent to the doctor electronically, it would be more convenient for the pt, and the doctor could share the information with other clinicians. The data could also be organized to look for any patterns between patients.

Advantages and disadvantages of using electronic communication between pts and healthcare providers

March 6, 2011

The use of electronic communication is one way in which technology is influencing changes in the delivery of healthcare today. I recently heard a physician interview on NPR (National Public Radio). The physician, a general practitioner, uses email to communicate with his patients. The physician’s rationale is that by using email he can respond to patients in a fast and efficient manner and perhaps save them a trip to the office. I see potential advantages as well as disadvantages with this form of communication. Use of e-mail is convenient and might be seen as increasing accessibility to the healthcare provider. One potential problem I see is in the area of cultural considerations as discussed in Chapter 3 of one of my Textbooks. Many cultures use body language and other nonverbal cues in communicating concerns or revealing symptoms. Without visual observation, the healthcare provider may miss important information required to make an accurate diagnosis.
