Introduction to Health Services Management
The Johns Hopkins Hospital

The Johns Hopkins hospital was founded in 1889 and four years later the Johns Hopkins University School of medicine was opened. They had an up graded medical school curriculum with emphasis on the scientific method, which included the incorporation of bedside teaching and laboratory research as part of the instruction and integration of the school of medicine with the hospital through joint appointments. Hopkins medicine is the first major medical school in the United States to admit women; the first to use rubber gloves during surgery; the first to develop renal dialysis and CPR.
Two of the most far-reaching advances in medicine during the last 25 years were made at Johns Hopkins. The Noble Prize – winning discovery of restriction enzymes gave birth to the genetic engineering industry and the discovery of the brain’s natural opiates has triggered an explosion of interest in neurotransmitter pathways and functions. Johns Hopkins are also known for the identification of the three types of polio virus and the first “blue baby” operation, which opened the way to modern heart surgery. They are also the first to conduct many medical specialties, including neurosurgery, urology, endocrinology, and pediatrics.
The mission of Johns Hopkins Medicine is to improve the health of the community and the world by setting the standard of excellence in medical education, research and clinical care. Diverse and inclusive, Johns Hopkins Medicine educates medical students, scientists, healthcare professionals and the public; conducts biomedical research; and provides patient – centered medicine to prevent, diagnose and treat human illness.
The vision of Johns Hopkins Medicine is to provide a diverse and inclusive environment that fosters intellectual discovery,…...

Be the Man or Work Fo Him

...Being the Man or Working for Him Be the Man or Work for Him I’ve been on both sides of the track. I can tell you that there are days that I miss owning my own business and there are days that I can’t believe that I would ever consider doing it again. There are many plusses to working for someone else; however, there are many benefits of being self-employed and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed them both. For the last six-plus years, I have been fortunate enough to work for one of the finest employers in my area. Fifteen years prior to that I took pride in owning several of the finest businesses in my area. We all need to make a living that makes us happy. Job satisfaction directly affects our entire lives in many ways. Based on a 40 hour work week, we spend almost twenty-four percent of our lives each week at what we do for a living. The National Sleep Foundation provides statistics that says that an average American sleep 6.7 hours per night. Taking this statistic and placing it in the equation and the percentage rises to a full 33%! One-third of our waking hours per week are dedicated to work. For many, working for the man suits them just fine. As well, many choose to pave their own road for a career. No matter what we do there is a sense of satisfaction that we all must experience in our careers. Having experienced both, I can say that there are inherent differences that divide the choice of, “Being THE MAN” versus “Working for THE MAN”. The following is a......

I admit it's not much of a story. I was interested, she says. He doesn't respond and takes his drink to the window. It's darker now but still snowing. She's been gone ten years and these are the stories I still remember about her, he says. I don't even remember the night of your birth, for God's sake. He takes a deep gulp from his drink and stares out the window. The darkness seems to grow with each minute. That's okay, it was so long ago, I – But she stops herself from saying more. She sits quietly and reflects upon her nails. He watches her in the window's reflection. He sighs heavily. She lifts her head. She looks out past him into the darkness. Then she asks if she is going to get to see the city, after all. He says, not tonight, how about tomorrow? She does not reply. I'm going to bed, she says. He continues to stare out the window and does not even seem to hear her. She gets up and goes to her room. He looks out into the cold darkness, remembering the times they used to have together as a family. He sighs and reaches for the bottle. It was going to be a long night after all.

Everything Stuck to Him

...Everything stuck to him I went to Milan from Christmas and I really want to know what it was like when I was a child. “I asked my father, tell me what it was like”, as i sip the Strega, waiting for him to answer me. “ That was along time ago”, my father said. “almost twenty years.” “You can remember”, I say as he is thinking of the story he is going to tell. “ I could tell you about something that happened, They were kids themselves, but they were crazy in love, this eighteen-year-old boy and this seventeen-year-old girl when they married. Not all that long afterwards they had a daughter. The baby came along in late November during a cold spell that just happened to coincide with the peak of the waterfowl season. The boy loved to hunt, you see. That’s part of it. The boy and girl, husband and wife, father and mother, they lived in a little apartment under a dentist’s office. Each night they cleaned the dentist’s place upstairs in exchange for rent and utilities. In summer they were expected to maintain the lawn and the flowers. In winter the boy shoveled snow and spread rock salt on the walks. Are you still with me? Are you getting the picture? I am, she says. That’s good, he says. So one day the dentist finds out they were using his letterhead for their personal correspondence. But that’s another story. He gets up from his chair and looks out the window. He sees the tile rooftops and the snow that is falling steadily on them. Tell the story, she says. The......

Advise Him on the Facts of the Case

...at work.  Soon thereafter, Teddy transferred Pollard to guard film equipment in the main warehouse behind the storefront; Virginia couldn't make personal calls there, and her work became exemplary. Her performance evaluation three months after her transfer was "meeting expectations" with no negative comments. Virginia Pollard was the only woman working in the warehouse, and she was often the victim of pranks perpetrated by her six male colleagues. Her co-workers taped her drawers shut, locked her out of the guard shack she sat in to watch the inventory, filled the guard shack with trash, and backed a forklift up to the door and made it backfire in her ear. One day a Teddy delivery driver sat in Pollard's chair and, when she tried to push him out of it, he bent her over his lap and spanked her. Pollard's new supervisor, Steve King, rarely enforced Teddy's rules against smoking, horseplay, foul language, and sexual harassment, and often indulged in such behaviors himself.  Teddy's had a written sexual harassment policy which included a method for employees to report sexual harassment - the method included filing a complaint with the direct supervisor unless the direct supervisor was the perpetrator. In that event, the employee was to file the complaint online at www.ReportTeddysafely.com.  The form for reporting was a one page document. A copy of the policy which Virginia Pollard signed is located here.  The policy specifically states, "In the event of a violation of this......

Him Challenges

...In the health information management (HIM) profession, there are many challenges and constant changes related to healthcare data. High-quality healthcare data is essential in order to create meaningful data. Electronic health records (EHRs) are a big part, and an increasingly important aspect of data quality. Data is analyzed and managed by the health professional, to be incorporated with new and changing technologies. Concerns have arisen with healthcare data, increasing the need for data integrity and reliability. Healthcare data will require constant improving to maintain quality. Healthcare leaders face many challenges related to data, such as the transition to the ICD-10-CM/PCS data system and producing meaningful use with data given. Other issues that occur for healthcare leaders, are maintaining compliance with clinical documentations and health data reporting requirements, whether by data entry or the software program itself. They must also ensure the health information exchange (HIEs) is worthwhile and that it will be sustainable. EHRs are used much more now than in the past and have become a staple in healthcare settings. EHRs have created options for healthcare organizations to choose from, in order to record documentation. Complaints and concerns have developed, in regards to electronic health records (EHRs). Since EHRs are being increasingly integrated into all aspects of healthcare settings, issues “regarding the integrity, reliability, and compliance...

The Day I Met Him

...David Williamson Ms. J. Aguilar English 1301 September 9,2014 The Day I Met Him A month ago I was put in a situation I never thought would come my way, I met my father. He had flown to Dallas to see me before my football season would start. That day was one I will never forget and never intend to forget. It was full of new experiences and an assurance that my father had acknowledged my existence, though I knew I had many doubts. “Klunk” The trunk closes as I take my father’s luggage out of the car. The summer morning was dreary with clouds and the air was damp, like a day will be in the heat of Texas. I had been looking forward to this day for 16 years. But as the day started, the realization that a man who hasn’t made an effort to see me since the day I was born is going to meet me finally, sunk in. I realized that we were both just children on the first day of school to each other, quiet and shy. We had finally left the airport and my mind had a million things running through it, but all I could mutter to my father was “Nice day today”. The awkwardness was oozing through the both of us, like soap from a sponge. After about 10 minutes of driving through downtown Dallas, my father finally muttered out “I guess you are wondering where I have been all this time”. “Well kind of” I replied, lying through my teeth. I did not want to admit the constant wonder I had of him, the overbearing curiosity of why he left, why he didn’t keep in touch, and why he avoided contact...

The Technology of Hims

...The Technology of HIMS: Hardware, Software, Peripheral and Processes Healthcare Information Management Systems (abbreviated as HIMS) are imperative to the success of any healthcare system. HIMS incorporates the necessary data that is needed by policy makers, clinicians, and health service users to improve and protect and provide aide for the health of the general population. There has been an increasingly demanding need for detailed, organized, and readily-available health information, including contracts, patient data, and repositories of information. Healthcare organizations must pay close attention and detail to the database structures, data management, and cater each owns individual requirements. For example, the Finance department will most likely not use the same information system as the Clinical departments. Each department has their own goals and initiatives that need to be produced with a designated HIM. These unique requirements are often “met with unilateral systems, that are either shared or stand-alone systems” (1). Normally healthcare organizations have to cater to two different types of management: clinical and financial. HIMS must always be integrated and have the ability to speak to each other, but also have the capability to operate individually (2). Common components of any HIMS includes: Scheduling, Registration, Insurance Eligibility Verification, Referral Service Authorization Tracking, Procedure or Order Entry, Medical Record Information......

The Role of Him in the Revenue Cycle

...It is not an understatement to say that the typical Health Information Management (HIM) area plays a critical role in the revenue cycle, largely due to the fact that the revenue cycle begins and ends with medical records (Anderson & Underwood, 2005). The term revenue cycle covers all events that take place in the patient care process that permits the organization to receive payment for the services rendered, and it is important to be aware that this is heavily reliant upon data (Dunn, 2009). In order to fully appreciate the participation of HIM in the revenue cycle process, it is imperative to first gain an understanding of who the key players are, and to summarize the flow of activities that comprises the revenue cycle of a healthcare facility. The key players in hospital revenue cycle management are Administration, Finance, Patient access, Health information management (HIM), Patient accounting, and Clinical services, which includes physicians, diagnostic services, and therapeutic services. Administration sees to strategic goals and operational efficiency and effectiveness. Finance deals with cash flow and contract management. Patient access is responsible for data integrity, demographic and financial data, insurance verification, and pre-certification. Clinical services is responsible for documentation of services, as well as documentation and recording of charges. Health information management takes charge of coding, abstracting, and data validation. Finally, Patient......

I Forgave Him

...Aaliyah Stamps November 1, 2015 Professor Hinckley Engl 113 I Forgave Him Past... I always thought that a littles girl’s first love, crush, superhero, and leader; was her father. In this case, my step- dad filled in the void, but the longing to have my biological dad in the picture was definite. I felt a gut wrenching pain every time I thought about this man. A pain so strong, only the love from him could take that pain away. He loved me with a string attached. Every time he walked away and disappeared for years, he snatched a piece of my heart way with him. Being so young, timid, and naïve; I knew no better. I was just thinking maybe he was just busy, but no one is ever too busy for their children. My father built up my spirits in him, only to let them crumble. He raised me to dislike him unintentionally, but my heart is too big. I always gave him the benefit of the doubt. The day he married, was the last day I settled for his lies and betrayal. He married the Wicked Witch of the West, Cruella, but left his innocent kids to fade away in the memories of his irresponsibleness. Mid-Past… I am a senior in high school now, an impeccable straight “A” student, captain of two teams, and a state powerlifting champ. Everyone thought I had the world held high over my shoulders, when in fact the world was sitting my chest suffocating me, trying to swallow me whole.

Marry Him Reading Response

...In the article “Marry Him!” posted by The Atlantic, Lori Gottlieb, the author, tries to convince readers to “settle” at a young age when it comes to potential mates, instead of looking for the perfect soul mate. She has a unique perspective on marriage because of her experiences and age. I do not agree with Gottlieb about needing to settle at a young age, but I do appreciate the view she has. One cannot make lists and lists of traits their mate must have, but focus on finding the individual who completes him/her. As Gottlieb advises not to settle, better advice would be to not get wrapped up in lengthy requirements. However, if I was in my forties and had never been married, I might share her feelings on this issue. There is a compatible person out there for everyone, but the difficulty is finding him or her. Lori Gottlieb polls her friends on being married, and finds their comments very disappointing. I hope the statement, “Oh, you’re so lucky, you don’t have to negotiate with your husband about the cost of piano lessons,” was said as a joke. In the event that it was serious, it is very sad that that wife viewed her marriage in that manner. Marriage should not be about arguing over the petty things, but enjoying and edifying each other in love. Marriage takes work. It is sometimes difficult to not have arguments and fight, but if someone settles with someone they do not 100 percent love, it could be even more difficult to find common ground. I also found the......

A Soul Inspired by Him

...A SOUL INSPIRED BY HIM We are born to be an instrument of change or an instrument of destruction. Many are born with inherent audacity and many are born with a lack of it. Many possess certain characteristics that are distinct while others don’t have; but I believe that every individual has hidden uniqueness that lies within them. They only need a rope to show in order to outstand. Life was never been a smooth sail and the road is not flat but rough and it is the way of life. Many of us surrendered, but many surpassed due to resiliency. I was once a slave of my past, a void soul. Prisoned by memory which inflicts agony to my entire being. Shattered, and doesn’t know how to pick up the broken pieces of my life. One significant event in a gloomy day, that a bewildered soul is a total mystery. A voice and an obscure image appear with strong conviction, leaving words that were almost a melody to be heard help me change my life and my perspective, an apparition of Him that inspired a void soul, with so much love and compassion. A life is worth living, not a life to sulk over the memories of past. The world is indeed cruel but I learned to see the optimistic side of it. I learned to see the world behind the prison cell I created. I have faith that one day, every rough place will be made plain, and crooked place will be made straight. If we listen and restore faith in Him, no soul is in agony, if we believe in His existence and......
