Running head: ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY Annotated Bibliography Student Name Institution Affiliation 1 ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 2 Buntin, M. B., Burke, M. F., Hoaglin, M. C., & Blumenthal, D. (2011). The benefits of health information technology: A review of the recent literature shows predominantly positive results. Health Affairs, 30(3), 464-471. https://doi.org/10.1377/hlthaff.2011.0178 Buntin et al. carried out a review of various literature in light of the increased acceptance of the EHR technology in modern healthcare organizations. The researchers were keen to determine the quality, efficiency as well as the satisfaction of the healthcare providers based on the use of EHR in healthcare organizations. The researchers found that 92% of all health information technologies showed that EHR enhanced the value of healthcare, improved patient outcomes, enhanced efficiency, and improved overall patient satisfaction. The researchers also noted that early adopters of EHR performed much better with the implementation of EHR in hospitals than the late adopters. The use of electronic health was however, tainted with complaints about delays and loss of patient data. All in all, the researchers concluded that EHR use had helpful impact of enhancing the quality of care and better outcomes as long as enough management and evaluation of the electronic health records was regularly improved and optimally implemented. Campanella, P., Lovato, E., Marone, C., Fallacara, L., Mancuso, A., Ricciardi, W., & Specchia, M. L. (2015). The impact of electronic health records on healthcare quality: A systematic review and meta-analysis. The European Journal of Public Health, 26(1), 60-64. https://doi.org/10.1093/eurpub/ckv122 Campanella et al. published researched the on the use of EHR to ascertain its impact on the superiority of healthcare. The researchers carried out an extensive literature review of 47 journals, including data from world-renowned libraries like Scopus and Cochrane. The ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 3 researchers then carried out a Meta-analysis to identify the relationship between electronic health records use and the quality of care. The implementation of EHR was analyzed while measuring the quality of care for various cases. The findings portrayed that with the use of electronic health records, the number of medical errors and ADEs went down while the quality of care was enhanced. The results of the study also proved that with increased time efficiency and adhering to industry guidelines. The research concluded that the use of electronic health records (EHR) was important to ensure better outcomes in hospitals and healthcare institutions as long as the system was well managed during implementation. Harle, C. A., & Menachemi, N. (2012). Will electronic health records improve healthcare quality? Challenges and future prospects. Expert Review of Pharmacoeconomics & Outcomes Research, 12(4), 387-390. https://doi.org/10.1586/erp.12.43 Harle and Menachemi, senior researchers at the University of Florida and the University of Alabama, reviewed the existing literature to determine the impact of the use of EHR. The study revealed that EHR improved the quality of care by reducing the number and frequency of medical errors. The research also portrayed that the use of EHR technology was linked to improved patient access to information, which led to better access to care for marginalized populations. The study also showed that electronic health records make it easier to share evidence-based practices among multidisciplinary teams, leading to better collaboration. The fact that EHR uses web-based applications on smart devices enhances the faster movement of patient data between patients, physicians, and medical teams. The researchers concluded that EHR should be integrated with telemedicine to help patients who experience distance barriers to access care. ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 4 Migdal, C. W., Namavar, A. A., Mosley, V. N., & Afsar-manesh, N. (2014). Impact of electronic health records on the patient experience in a hospital setting. Journal of Hospital Medicine, 9(10), 627-633. https://doi.org/10.1002/jhm.2240 This research study by Migdal et al. aimed to assess the impact of electronic health record technology on patient experience. This was informed by the recent efforts by care providers to ensure patient-centric services. The research carried out at the Ronal Reagan, and UCLA medical centers assessed 3417 surveys that inculcated patient representation. The analysis was done before EHR was implemented, and after it was implemented to ascertain the difference. The tool that was used to measure the finding was the response the patients gave to their physicians. The researcher administered 16 questions for the study with all of them, indicating positive feedback after a three-month evaluation. However, 56% of the feedback portrayed that indeed the use of EHR allowed better sharing of patient information. The researchers concluded that EHR played an important role in enhancing the communication between multidisciplinary teams, patients, and physicians and also in enhancing better outcomes for patients. Stanhope, V., & Matthews, E. B. (2019). Delivering person-centered care with an electronic health record. BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, 19(1). https://doi.org/10.1186/s12911-019-0897-6 Stanhope and Mathews researched the impact of electronic health records technology on the implementation of patient-based care in community health care organizations. At least five mental care hospitals that used EHR were analyzed by the researchers while taking in data from an array of stakeholders, including clinic leaders and medical consultants were used to assessing the implementation of EHR. The research showed that the use of EHR had a positive effect on ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 5 the quality of patient-centered care. However, the study noticed that service providers faced challenges when it comes to individualizing patient data and carrying out service planning. The researchers concluded that EHR is vital in implementing and administering high-quality healthcare, especially with individualized information and orientation of care plans to align with patient needs and preferences. Zhang, Y., Yu, P., & Shen, J. (2012). The benefits of introducing electronic health records in residential aged care facilities: A multiple case study. International Journal of Medical Informatics, 81(10), 690-704. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijmedinf.2012.05.013 Zhang, Yu, and Shen; researchers at the University of Wollongong carried out a study to measure the benefits of electronic health records for a residential institution that provided care to the elderly. The researchers used qualitative analysis to analyze the benefits that healthcare providers and patients enjoyed in New South Wales, Queensland, and the Australian Capital territories. The researchers relied on a longitudinal study and interviews for 110 health specialists in the areas of focus. The findings showed that electronic health records improved the storage and sharing of patient data, empowered health staff, and to enhance the quality of care for the elderly. The researchers concluded that EHR medical service providers enjoyed easy access and real-time sharing of patient data, thus enhancing collaboration between multidisciplinary units and between the patient and physician to achieve better outcomes. Running Head:2-2 Journal: Healthcare Research Priorities Henderson 1 Healthcare Research Priorities I think electronic human services records (EHR) have been significant in propelling medicinal services. The EHRs permit the coherence of care and takes into consideration the patient's access to want to stay concentrated on them and not taking notes during the official visit. The EHR likewise takes into account fewer mistakes to be made. "Less Paperwork and Fewer Storage Issues In the healthcare industry, administrative duties represent a significant amount of time and costs" (USF Health, 2019). Beforehand with manually written records, there was space for blunder and miscommunication. Electronic social insurance records take into account progressively engaged and exact consideration just as the capacity to see wellbeing patterns for patients. When needing emergency care or establishing new health care your previous records are crucial to prevent accidents with allergies and medications. "EHRs contain a patient's medical history, diagnoses, medications, treatment plans, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images, and laboratory and test results" (Health IT, 2017). Technology is a critical component in healthcare today, so its benefits are limitless. Clinical suppliers all through the world are burning through a huge number of dollars on electronic social insurance record frameworks that permit doctors and emergency clinics to share persistent data flawlessly. Healthcare administration needs a wide-based aptitude to absorb data and settle on proof-based choices with the goal that records not mistakenly disposed of or positioned. Electronic correspondence is pointless, except if it's applied to profiting the patient's care. Running Head:2-2 Journal: Healthcare Research Priorities Henderson 2 References Health IT.
