Iwant to learn how to give first aid to someone who has a freshlyfractured leg. I will search the process through Google database ofinformation and YouTube. The first step, in an open fracture case, isto cover the wound with a sterilized bandage. Apply enough pressureon the injured part to stop breeding (Issa,Walsh, & Amidon, 2010).Help the affected person reduce pain and prevent any further damageby supporting the injured body part from moving. After the firsttreatment, call for ambulance services for help. To manage thisinformation you require an investment system that can manage theexplicit information (Paseman,& Chang, 2005). Explicitknowledge in first aid includes standard procedures. The criticalinformation collected is then codified and then shared throughappropriate media such as facebook and Google. When designing thisprocess, you should consider how the information passed in yourorganization. Other processes and practices, people and cultureshould be considered for the Knowledge management system to beaccepted in the organization (Paseman,& Chang, 2005)..
Therole healthcare IT
Theadoption information technology in healthcare continues to increase.Most heath providers use electronic medical records, ICD-10migration, and telemedicine communication. Health practitioners useinformation technology to analyze clinical applications (Fichman,Kohli & Krishnan, 2011).IT helps in connecting patients, doctors and clinicians at variouspoints in a hospital or health facility. The information captured bythe medical systems can be analyzed and used by medical practitionersto improve the medical standards in their facility or region. Theinformation that is stored by the use of information technology canshow the hospital’s financial history, treatment history and commondiseases that are reported in that health center(Paseman,& Chang, 2005)..These records can further show the main treatment processes that werefollowed for each and every case.
Theuse of information technology can troubleshoot and identify the mainproblems, development, and areas to priories in investment. Thesystems can analyze and give viable recommendations that can rely on.Finally, the use of health information technology can enable thehospital to apply from the clinical trainers. The trainers can usethe technology to help clinicians treat patients. The use ofinformation technology can promote interactions between healthpractitioners enhancing sharing important information that can beused in treatment (Weber,Rutala, Miller, Huslage, & Sickbert-Bennett, 2010).
InformationTechnology Investments and Returns. Theuse of information technology in health affects the firms’efficiency can be explained by research and practice. A number offunds that are invested in IT depend on the information technologyassets, such as IT hardware, the human resource investment, theknowledge management systems, and any other outsourcing required. Thequality of assets that are acquired affects the efficiency andproductivity of the system (Paseman,& Chang, 2005).A study that was conducted by (Dehning,& Richardson, 2002)mention that the cost and returns from information technologyinvestment depend on the size of the health system, and management ofthat system.
Inlarge hospitals that have huge investments, information technologyspending improves efficiency and therefore increases the returns oninvestment (Morganti,Bauhoff, Blanchard, Abir, Iyer, Smith, & Kellermann, 2013). While in small health centers investment on IT may not improve anyproductivity. The management of the facility may decide to outsourcethe IT facility on lease program when required to avoid theinvestment cost.
