Patient Advocacy

During one's stay in a hospital, hospice or any confined place of wellness there must be a need provided by electronic means of communicating when medical assistance by person(s) is not nearby or immediate.
Hospitals, facilities including those of mental health that provide overnight care are overwhelmed with the overcrowding of patients and their responsibility for their safety, care and overall maintenance.

SCOPE

The electronic advocacy system for patient use and submission is designed for a patient to communicate regarding concerns that have arisen resulting from their stay of confinement. These can include the following: requests from a nurse by a patient by which a nurse can respond back, contacting an advocate regarding hospital staff, when assistance has not been provided. Meals and other restrictions for diet can also be communicated. When a patient has other needs that are critical and may extend itself to the care of the patients once he or she is released from the hospital care facility for example rehabilitation, therapy, home care arrangements, medical equipment or any aftercare can be initiated through the electronic patient advocate system.

IMPLEMENTATION

The electronic patient advocacy system consists of a monitor and keyboard. Every patient should have the independent use of this system and the facility of patient stay be required to inform each patient of its use. To send a message to the advocate or the nurses station you may select both if desired, the advocates page will appear. The patient will be able to select from a list of options, concerns or needs they have or they can type in anything they need regarding advocacy care and then send the message. A confirmation number will appear stating that the message has been sent which can be copied for future reference.

HIPAA

This information will become part of the patient's medical file which is confidental and will only be released with prior consent of the patient.

CONCLUSION

This in electronic patient communication will advise the advocate in advance regarding issues prior to seeing the patient. The system once put into effect will ultimately create a quicker response between patient issues and response because the advocate has been electronically notified and will be able to contact the patient and other facilities needed in regards to validity of concern and or appropriate and necessary care afterwards of contact. The advocate will be required to leave an electronic response with regards to the status of patient need or problem. Upon expediting practical communication this will ensure a confident and less tedious hospital stay.
