There is a database server APACHE Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation that compares and evaluates results from intensive care units. It also evaluates quality of care being served there in ICUs. Mortality rates are adjusted by the data coming out from the data of ICU patients. The mortality rates decide the rate of severity in diseases and so this rate is used to evaluate the ruthlessness of sicknesses. The track is kept so that the lives can be made better. If more and more people consult with computers for the serious illnesses the knowledge data base will grow with natural possibilities.
This way better heuristics would have been possible and the most accurate results to that date (Agency for Health Care Research and Quality, 1996). An expert system evaluates the condition of patient and suggests whatever is necessary for him/her. If it suggests any tests, it automatically calculates and redirects the patient to the place which offers the most cost-effective and reliable treatments. The future of this system is luminous because the progress would need its data and whole of its information to make a stronger database for making the strongest reliable decision.
This knowledge database already contains information from years. Due to less usage previously it is possible that the data of the past is not complete, but today it is this virtual world; it has all the things in it which are either written in hardcopy or softcopy, gets uploaded somehow in this virtual world. Therefore a plan for having a paperless record system would be fulfilled soon enough. Another vision is to develop a terminology in IT for medicine which would relate to computerized records of medical clinical, patient, and health information.
In addition to the vision for future, it is necessary to share patient’s case histories and information with other institutions so that all the people together could make this world a better place to live with health and serenity (Agency for Health Care Research and Quality, 1996). With that, it also has to be ensured that this useful information does not reach out to the villains of the nation and has to be safe and secure using the security firewall and alerts against the intruders (Agency for Health Care Research and Quality, 1996). Conceptual Models of Communications
Evolution in advances that have been made to medicine industry begins from the emergence of this world in the universe. From then, man has been trying to improve his ways to treat patients in a better way. Technology has shown progress in every field. Similarly the field of medicine cannot be left behind for this. Communication’s conceptual models have been prevailing in the health care industry (New Jersey’s Science and Technology University, 1995). Communication models were first proposed in 1954 so that the clinical practices could be progressed, this model was introduced in 1966.
Financial and technological factors had impeded the implementation of theoretical concepts. Therefore the researchers tried for some joint ventures with insurance firms to make some progress but failed for not generating any profits and only expenses. In 1981 constrains were being faced in the way of applying technology but the capacity increases by the time and implementation of conceptual models got started from clinical assistance systems to financial management and mental health services management.
These were amongst those systems which used to serve seamless service and provided the patient with his intended services whether he is interested in clinical services, billing, or any other services. Strong communication services had led perfect services delivery i. e. right provider providing right kind of service to the patient at right time and with reasonable charges (New Jersey’s Science and Technology University, 1995).
