HLT 308V Week 3 Benchmark Risk Management Program Analysis Part Two

Summary Brief of the Risk Management Strategy

Drawing on the previous assignment, which required the development of a risk management strategy, the adolescent population was depicted as a vulnerable stage in development that requires more detailed supervision and guidance from those closest to the individuals.  Owing to brain development and the greater capacity for memory and learning during adolescence, curiosity grows (Gruber & Fandakova, 2021).

HLT 308V Week 3 Benchmark Risk Management Program Analysis Part Two

This has affected adult smoking habits, as statistics show that 9 out of 10 adults who smoke cigarettes daily started smoking before the age of 18 years (CDC, 2022). Because this age is a critical period for smoking initiation, a risk management strategy was proposed to prevent smoking initiation among adolescents as well as to assist those who already smoke in quitting.

The risk management strategy involves an educational primary care-feasible behavioral intervention aimed at school-aged children and adolescents under the age of 18. The intervention is proposed to be delivered via print, face-to-face conversations, telephone, and computers.

However, due to the incompatibility of the school schedules of the school-aged children and the care providers’ schedules, it was proposed that the intervention take place on weekends when the students are free or be facilitated through telephonic calls and computers, which may be much more convenient for both groups. This paper examines how the quality and improvement process contributes to the institution’s risk management efforts.

Role of MIPAA-Approved Accreditation Body

The organization with which I am affiliated attributes its quality performance to adherence to the standards set by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Act (HITECH), a MIPAA-approved accreditation body. The act was enacted to encourage using electronic health records to improve healthcare data privacy and security while improving patient care quality and safety (Lin et al., 2019).

The HITECH Act ensures that healthcare adheres to the standards, principles, and regulations that ensure the safety of both patients and caregivers. The HITECH Act in the US healthcare system has five objectives that, when combined, provide a stimulus package for quality improvement.

The goals are as follows: (1) improve quality, safety, and efficiency; (2) involve patients in their care; (3) improve care coordination; (4) improve general population health; and (5) ensure privacy and security (Lin et al., 2019). Regarding the proposed primary care-feasible behavioral intervention, its telehealth component—the telephonic and computer approach—makes it subject to the HITECH Act. My healthcare organization intends to achieve program implementation through well-planned strategies related to each HITECH Act goal.

Roles of the Different Levels of Administrative Personnel

The role of various organizational, administrative levels in maintaining ethics and sustaining organizational risk management strategies varies. Starting with the risk management stratum, a risk manager is mandated to develop, assess, implement, and monitor risk management plans and ensure that identified risks are avoided.

The scope of the risk manager extends to ensuring that the technologies used do not cause any harm to the targeted population and that access is only granted to authorized individuals, thereby preventing system breaches (Kusserow, 2020). To put this into context, when using computer systems to deliver primary care-feasible behavioral counseling interventions, care is taken only to allow qualified and authorized care providers who facilitate the program access the systems, thereby preventing the exposure of sensitive information about school-aged children to unauthorized individuals.

The various healthcare department administrators work together to uphold the organization’s ethics. They exercise ethical leadership while keeping the ethical principles in mind, and they educate the various staff members on achieving their goals without violating them.

How the Organization’s Risk Management and Compliance Programs Support Ethical Standards, Patient Consent, and Patient Rights and Responsibilities

The proposed risk management strategy aims to prevent smoking initiation or assist those who have begun smoking to quit among school-aged children and adolescents under the age of 18. According to the recommendations of the US Preventive Services Task Force, the primary care-feasible behavioral intervention has moderate effects in assisting the target population in preventing smoking initiation (USPSTF et al., 2020). This evidence-based, proven efficacy is consistent with the beneficence principle, an ethical principle that advocates for services that benefit patients.

Furthermore, even though children under the age of 18 are not permitted to sign an informed consent form when participating as subjects in a research/program, their parents must consent to their involvement in the intervention. As a result, the intervention is not coerced upon anyone, and patient voluntary participation, or rather, their parents’ acceptance of their involvement, must be sought. How does the risk management strategy support the rights and responsibilities of patients?

Given that the target population is children and adolescents, the University of North Carolina (2022) document on patient rights and responsibilities recognizes that a child or adolescent’s family/guardian has the right and responsibility to be involved in decisions about the child’s care. This statement bolsters the organization’s milestone in seeking parental decisions regarding the participation of children/adolescents in the program, and it is safe to say that the proposed risk management strategy takes the patients’ rights and responsibilities into account.

Ethical and Legal Responsibilities of Healthcare Professionals in Upholding Risk Management Policies

Whether knowingly or unknowingly, healthcare professionals bear various ethical and legal responsibilities. Before performing any procedure, healthcare providers must first obtain informed consent from patients (Shah et al., 2022). Informed consent allows patients to make a voluntary decision about whether or not to undergo a procedure. However, there are some exceptions to informed consent, such as (1) when the patient is incapacitated, (2) in emergencies with insufficient time to obtain consent, and (3) voluntary waived consent (Shah et al., 2022).

Obtaining informed consent, which is part of autonomy, an ethical principle, allows healthcare professionals to uphold ethical principles. Furthermore, the healthcare provider ensures the confidentiality of the patient’s health information. This is accomplished through the use of electronic health records by securing the systems through device encryption and the use of biometric devices. Patient health information protection is a provision in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and it is accomplished through several mechanisms, two of which are mentioned in the preceding statement.

Healthcare providers go to great lengths to protect patients’ rights to avoid any medicolegal consequences on the part of the provider and physical and psychological complications on the part of the patients (Pozgar, 2019). The use of a radiofrequency detector to identify sponges or other surgical pack content in a patient’s body is one example of how a healthcare provider may use technology to avoid legal or ethical issues that may arise from a medical procedure (Pozgar, 2019).

This would prevent harm to the patient while also establishing non-maleficence as an ethical principle and saving a healthcare provider from medicolegal issues resulting from leaving sponges inside the patient’s body following surgeries. The legal and ethical responsibilities of healthcare professionals manifest in a variety of settings, one of which is the surgical department, as illustrated above.

How the Processes for Quality Control Contribute and Support the Organization’s Excellence

HLT 308V Week 3 Benchmark Risk Management Program Analysis Part Two

Quality of care services is arguably the most valuable component of healthcare. Following that is the safety of patient care. Establishing an effective quality control department is critical to achieve these two most desired components of patient care. The quality control department ensures that care meets the standards established by customized organizational or universal quality control bodies and accreditation bodies. Thus, quality control processes are prerequisites for quality and safe patient care, contributing to organizational excellence (Pambreni et al., 2019).

Furthermore, quality control processes ensure the provision of consistent and cost-effective care, assisting an organization in lowering its operating costs while increasing profits. Moreover, because of the use of technology in the proposed primary care-feasible behavioral interventions, the processes become streamlined, ultimately improving the satisfaction of the target population. As such, the organization’s excellence and reputation remain ethereal.

Conclusion

Risk management is a prerequisite to the provision of safe and high-quality care. Risk management strategies can be tailored to meet the needs of an organization and align with the institution’s goals. A risk management strategy was proposed for school-aged children and adolescents to aid in preventing smoking initiation and assisting those who have begun to quit.

As the world shifts to recognizing and embracing more technology use in healthcare, the majority of people would agree that technology has made significant strides in facilitating risk management programs. This is supported by the use of computers and telephones to conduct counseling interventions, a strategy known as telemedicine.  Without fear of contention, the implementation of risk management strategies in organizations before the conduct of an actual program predicts the success of the actual program.

1 Risk Management Program Analysis – Part One

2 Risk Management Program Analysis – Part One

Healthcare Industry and Summary of the Type of Risk Management Plan

Media is a valuable tool and practical mechanism that exponentially promotes healthcare services. Social media can benefit health care in myriad ways, including fostering professional relationships, facilitating timely contact with patients and their households, and educating and advising clients and health care professionals.

When utilized wisely and professionally, it stimulates their providers’ anticipations of care for those in need, even though it can evolve into a hazardous conception and form risk management for the institutions. Nurses spend many hours in school and complete many hours of clinical rotations to guarantee a high level of knowledge.

To fulfill their caring jobs in the healthcare business, they dedicate themselves like any healthcare provider in addition to adherence to many laws and regulations. Since straightforward communication with patients is one of the most critical risk management activities in the healthcare field, some organizations strived to contain the damage to patients and lower medical malpractice lawsuits (Grob, 2005).

Requirements did to nurses the necessity to apprehend and devote guidelines whenever using social media to virtually express their emotions or pursue support from colleagues, families, and friends. Through their use of social media, there is a possibility that nurses break the patient’s privacy (National Council of State Boards of Nursing,2018).

Descriptive steps for a health care organization’s risk management program

Healthcare risk management calls on traditionally focused on critical patient safety and reduction of medical fallacies, and it increasingly becomes more complex over time with cybersecurity (The New Partners Initiative Technical Assistance (NuPITA), 2010). Every business needs a risk management program because it helps to mitigate potential difficulties that can develop to prevent the expansion of their employees’ unintentional mistakes.

Risk management plans and strategies are used to ensure everything is by detecting, managing, or moving the risk (Ahmed et al., 2021). Some Health care organizations, while authorizing the utilization of electronic and social media, commonly enclose guidelines supervising employee usage of such media in the workplace.

Details of these policies frequently lecture personal service of employer computers and supplies, personal computing during work hours, and allow access to a particular group of websites. The nurses may still use their home computers to express their will, but that can still constitute a nursing breach (National Council of State Boards of Nursing,2018).

Risk Management

Patient and family complaints, purpose, benefits, communication strategies, contingency plans, reporting procedures, reaction, and mitigation are just a few crucial areas that risk management should include. The process of creating a risk management program and rules is not easy. Its development requires extensive research, in-depth analysis, and formal planning. In reality, there are several procedures involved in developing a risk management system, including:

  • Setting up your context is the first step by identifying potential hazards, assessing possible risks, and documenting those results.
  • The second degree is to identify the possible risks by considering the causes of issues rather than focusing on the current issue.
  • The third phase is evaluation. Assessment of hazards evaluation needs for possible loss severity and the likelihood of occurrence.
  • The fourth stage is probability treatment techniques to risk management: How long will you keep the danger under control? The possible procedures of action found after assessing the risk.
  • The fifth action is to create a risk management procedure. To assess each risk, choose the necessary controls or countermeasures
  • The sixth effort is to implement all to mitigate scenarios to impact the effect of the risks

The seventh action is to review and evaluate all the planned steps for reducing the impact of the risks depending on the risk faced, experience, and a change in circumstances will call for modifications in the policy (NuPI T A), (2010).

 Nursing Health care organization’s risk management program

The Board of Nursing supports Federal law and reinforces and further defines privacy through the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Furthermore, they develop this method: A Nurse’s Guide to the Use of Social Media. Safe Care Health is a private family-owned agency that has been in business since 2004. the first home care assistance agency offers medical and non-medical home care services in New Jersey and Canada.

Besides, the American Nurses Association (ANA) guides federal-level advocacy criteria to guarantee that policymakers and regulators comprehend the function of the nurse and nursing when implementing laws through the regulatory process.

ANA engrosses with numerous federal agencies: the Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the United States government’s principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA).

Confidentiality & Privacy

Privacy implements that the patient must denote respect and dignity within their care. Understanding confidentiality and privacy in the healthcare context is essential for healthcare professionals, especially nurses must limit the proper use of social media. The interconnection between confidentiality and privacy are associated but distinct concepts: That nurse must safeguard any patient information learned by the nurse during treatment. Data may only not be disclosed to other health care team members to provide care for the patient. Sometimes, the nurses may need Confidential knowledge regarding the patient unless the action is to care for the patient.

Proven in reducing social media use

Social media is very addictive and consumes people’s time. The moderate person spends a minimum of 145 minutes on social media daily. So what exactly is the core of this obsession? Evidence-based proved a study on social media that users worldwide will intentionally waste a random totality of almost 4 trillion hours on social media during 2021. – similar to more additional than 420 million years of combined human existence.

In 2018, internet customers represented 42% around world % of the total population in the world are active social media users (2018), mainly on the portable phone (De, 2021). The Joint Commission strives to put improvements into effect by working with federal and state laws to define the scope of practice in healthcare organizations, eliminate duplicative regulatory rules, and enhance research to increase national quality and safety.

J.C. collaborates with other organizations through its Department of Health Services Research to assess and look into patient safety issues, including observing surgical safety and sharing infection control best practices. The Joint Commission is essential in raising awareness of organizational compliance requirements via evaluating patient and public safety reports. As they collaborate with other organizations to develop better standards to improve failures recorded in a healthcare institution, J.C. aids in raising the bar for standards.

Health Care Organizations and being Overworked

The World Health Organization, or WHO, is a neighborhood-based organization that guards against overworking medical personnel. Health care workers have a limit on the number of hours they may work before they are “exhausted” by organizations like the WHO. Fatigue is a risk management factor that impacts physician assistants and other service providers who influence our patients and visitors.

Speaking from experience as a student who has stayed up late studying, there are unquestionable health consequences to not allowing one’s body and mind to get enough rest. The following issues include in a risk assessment strategy for administrators: patient safety; federal rules that must follow; potential medical errors; current and future policies; and legislation that will influence the healthcare industry.

Risks associated with not anticipating problems may have significant, long-term repercussions. The quality of patient treatment may be compromised, possible risks may grow, and financial losses may ensue from failing to implement complete risk management procedures. Therefore, it is necessary to assess possible dangers in terms of their potential harm. An organization-specific management strategy should be created, carried out, and monitored based on the risk assessment

Risk Management Analysis

The World Health Organization will train its personnel and departments to provide the best treatment possible. The World Health Organization needs to promote patient care quality via education, recommendations on how to do so, techniques for identifying and reducing events, rules, standards, and safety management.

The management program improves all healthcare staff’s treatment and wellness. There would be more minor errors and a significant improvement in therapy if the potential for tiredness were eliminated. The seven stages listed above should include in the procedure, with valuable departmental feedback. Then, with adequate monitoring and indicators for prompt action, This technique would make it possible to keep track of the hospital’s or medical facility’s work on the problem and serve as a foundation for ongoing development. In the sad case that anything went wrong, the hospital or medical institution would be able to protect as the population from any potential danger.

Action Recommendations

  • Seek senior leadership approval for coordinating the firm’s patient safety, risk, and quality operations.
  • Ensuring that the organization’s strategic objectives align with the patient safety, risk, and quality initiatives.
  • Examining existing patient safety, risk, and quality activities to identify roles and minimize effort duplication.
  • Creating a system that ensures patient care activities are handled in a way that involves patient safety, risk management, and quality control functions.
  • Seeking advice to ensure that the organization of patient safety, risk management, and quality activities optimizes legal safeguards while enabling information to flow across all areas.
  • Working to coordinate and simplify process modifications, data gathering, analysis, and monitoring.

As the demands of the company evolve, periodically examine the responsibilities of patient safety, risk, and quality.

Learning Styles and Strategies

HLT-308-0500: Risk Management and Health Care Regulations

Nursing Education to Overcome Social Media Risk management

Every business has a risk management program to mitigate possible difficulties. Risk management plans and strategies are used to ensure everything is by detecting, managing, or moving the risk (Ahmed et al., 2021). This outline develops the educational information on social media in‐service, a kind of risk management program for employees to

employ in-home care services to prevent the expansion of their employees’ unintentional mistakes through social media, which becomes more complex with cybersecurity. Some Health care organizations, while authorizing the utilization of electronic and social media, commonly have guidelines supervising employee usage of such media in the workplace. Healthcare administrators operate behind the stages with depth knowledge of the regulatory framework in patient care through understanding state and federal laws and guaranteeing the application of HIPAA laws within their area of responsibility and expertise.

1) Introduction: Social Media Identifies as a Risk Management within Home Health Care Services

Social media is

  • Very addictive and consumes people’s time.
  • Encourage participation and collaboration amongst users.

The introduction of social media

  • How many individuals, communities, and organizations communicate and interact while forcing executives to rethink how they operate their businesses (Cox & Atkinson, 2019).

Home healthcare agency

  • Promotes their marketing through Facebook, which persists in gaining traction as a booming marketing method among adults and children between 30 and 60 years old.

Social media can become:

  • A hazardous generator and form of risk management for institutions. Social media makes risk management possible as some nurses break the patient’s privacy (National Council of State Boards of Nursing, 2018).
  • Benefits health care in myriad ways when employed wisely and professionally, including fostering professional relationships, facilitating timely contact with patients and their households, and educating and advising clients and health care professionals.

The increasing vogue of social media within a corporate context

pinpointed the potential function and usage of social media in both study and procedure ( Cox & Atkinson, 2019).

2) Rationale: Illustrate how the Uncontrolled Usage of Social Media as Risk Management Strategy Diminished the Homecare Organization

while the Performance of a Planned one will better Meet Local, State, and Federal compliance standards

The moderate person spends

  • a minimum of 145 minutes on social media daily. So what exactly is the core of this obsession?

Risks associated with not anticipating problems

  • May have significant, long-term repercussions.
  • The quality of patient treatment may be compromised, possible risks may grow, and financial losses may ensue from failing to implement complete risk management procedures.

The World Health Organization

  • Needs to promote patient care quality via education, recommendations on how to do so, techniques for identifying and reducing events, rules, standards, and safety management.
  • Strategies for nursing teaching and its adoption in the health design
  • Accomplishing persuasion and efficiency in nursing instruction
  • Health care procedures and stimulating pathways for nursing teaching

Support:

  • Healthcare organizations, such as Homecare services
  • are flooded with administrative rules and regulations influencing every facet of their operations.
  • The Administrative Procedures Act7 explains the various procedures under which federal organizational tools must operate. The act specifies administrative agencies’ procedural obligations and authority and provides legal prescriptions for agency activities.
  • The regulatory control wielded by administrative agencies includes the power to license, the power of rate setting, and the power over business practices (Pozgar, 2014).
