What are the reasons for there being so many new emerging types of health care workers? What are some services and provider types emerging from these roles? How have these types or services
affected your life?
The expertise of HIM professionals is now being used in all healthcare environments that collect, organize, and analyze healthcare data. [ [ As the move to the practice of evidence-based medicine increases, employment opportunities for HIM professionals continue to grow in diverse employment settings. According to the 2003 AHIMA Work Force Study data, approximately 53 percent of AHIMA
professionals work in hospital acute care settings.3 This is compared to the 60 percent reported to work in hospital acute care settings in the 1995 AHIMA Roles and Functions Study. Projecting this trend to 2010, one would expect to find less than half of AHIMA professionals working in hospital acute care settings. The unique skills and knowledge sets of the HIM individual are being recognized in roles that blend professional, clinical, and research skills with knowledge of business operations and insight into management of information systems. In both traditional and nontraditional work roles, job responsibilities have shifted to include involvement in evidence-based quality improvement initiatives, participation in clinical research projects, and risk management. For example, academic medical centers offer employment opportunities for those trained in compliance, performance improvement, IT, and research. The HIM professional possesses the combination of knowledge and skills sought after in collaborative research projects in the healthcare arena today. HIM educators possess a valuable set of knowledge and skills, placing them in leadership roles in the design and implementation of research projects. The skills and knowledge that HIM educators bring to the research process include (1) expertise in statistics and research methodology; (2) technical knowledge of information systems and of the application of IT to solving clinical problems; (3) understanding of workflow; and (4) knowledge of educational theory and curriculum development. ] ]

What is one area of health care worker shortage? What is the reason for this shortage? How would you address this shortage? How does this shortage affect the services available?
Weegy: The shortage of primary care physicians, nurses, dentists and mental health workers has been growing for years. [ Yet many people struggle to understand how the industry could suffer from worker shortages in an era of economic recession, when many Americans are out of work. One explanation points to the variety of workers who are needed to keep the healthcare industry functioning. Both professionals who provide direct health services such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists and laboratory technicians or those who offer support services such as financial officers, cooks, drivers and cleaners are integral to the industry. A shortage in just one part of that complex web can stop other parts from working efficiently, according to a World Health Organization (WHO) report. The WHO notes that developed countries, such as the U.S. are experiencing a shortage due to a growing aging population and increasingly high-tech healthcare. At the same time, government and university leaders have underinvested in health worker education, leaving the country with too few new health workers to replace their retiring colleagues. The causes are different in poorer nations, according to the WHO. Developing countries, largely in the southern hemisphere, face their own shortage as overworked doctors struggle to fight the AIDS epidemic and suffer high rates of HIV-related illness and death themselves. Add to this the fact that many third-world healthcare workers leave their home countries to seek higher wages and better working conditions in wealthier nations, and the shortages in these poorer nations worsen. The effects of the shortages The stakes are high and could have far-reaching effects. Public health nurses represent the largest group of public health professionals, comprising 10 percent of the workforce. Unfortunately, they also are experiencing the greatest shortage of workers. ] (More)

What is one way that the facet of specialization-providers and hospitals- affect continuity of care?
Weegy: The main goal of the study was to identify associations of continuity of care indices with healthcare utilization pattern by a logistic regression model. We estimated that up to 20 variables are likely to be included. [ Since the rule of thumb is to include at least 15 observations per parameter, at least 300 patients would have to be included in the analysis to yield significant results [37]. Therefore, the sample size available for analysis (1,713 patients) was satisfactory. The cutoff of 3 visits was necessary because continuity of care is always perfect for patients with one visit, and even among patients with two visits, values of indices could shift from 0 to 1 with minute changes in the patterns of visits. Patients treated at a group-practice clinic were excluded, because in such clinics more than one physician is the regular source of care for the patient and the individual physician that participated in the clinical encounter could not be identified. These patients comprised 8% of Clalit's enrollees in 2009 (7% of clinics). No other exclusions were made. Pregnant women were included in the analysis. ] (More)
