RESPOND TO EACH PEER POST: (2 PEER POSTS PER 1 DISCUSSION QUESTION)

ORIGINAL DQ 1:Explain how interprofessional collaboration will help reduce errors, provide higher-quality care, and increase safety. Provide an example of a current or emerging trend that will require more, or change the nature of, interprofessional collaboration.

ELIZABETH:

IPC reduces errors because healthcare providers, service providers, and social workers work together to positively influence patient care and patient outcomes. These regular interactions between healthcare professionals, reviewing and sharing expertise within their field to provide quality and most accurate care and recommendations reduces medical errors, miscommunication between sub specialties, and increases the quality of the care provided. An emerging trend that still has barriers today, is the scope of practice for APRNs. APRN’s in various situations are given the autonomy to diagnose, see primary care patients, and writing prescriptions, however not required under the supervision of a physician, however, collaboration is vital and does occur (Whitney, 2018). My primary care for example is an MD, however, I have seen a nurse practitioner for a sick visit within the same office and both the nurse practitioner and my regular physician collaborate via Penn Medicine Portal with ease. Collaboration is very important to maintain accuracy and the latest details of the patient to best formulate a future plan of care.

ORIGINAL DQ 2:

Describe one innovative health care delivery model that incorporates an interdisciplinary care delivery team. Explain how this model is advantageous to patient outcomes.

ELIZABETH:

An innovative health care delivery model that incorporates an IPC delivery team is an ACO, or known as Accountable Care Organizations, which is the most basic form of collaboration amongst primary care, specialists, hospitals, and other health care providers. All parties work together to provide quality care, the most cost-effective care, and are all accountable for the patient’s outcome (AAACN, 2020). The ACO promotes accountability for their patients and arranges service. This is an advantage for patient outcomes because the ACO meets quality performance standards, reduces medical errors and inconsistencies through IPC. Not only do they collaborate for improved health outcomes, but patients can also be qualified for a financial bonus if the ACO meets specific quality and savings targets (AAACN, 2020).

BRENDA:

The Patient Protection and Affordability Care Act (PPACA) enhanced services to patients and families. This now law has new delivery systems that enhanced the patient experience. Such things as patient advocacy, care coordination, education, quality improvement and community outreach are now touched on in the delivery models for quality patient-family care. The use of electronic medical records (EMR) allows for better communication between providers to deliver safe care to the patients which allows for better outcomes. Having better communication helps with the cost of health care and better delivery of medical care between providers. Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) improved care for patients across the continuum, Plan for budgets and resources, using evidence-based protocols, and measurements of performance through patient surveys.
