New Health Medical System Memo The director of staffing for a New Health Medical Systems has been required to create a new staffing strategy that will fill the 35 new positions opening up in the cardiovascular unit. She has recommended four strategies to help accomplish this goal: advertisement in local newspapers, staffing agencies, job fair for local professionals, and a signing bonus for contracts signed to complete 180 days. Below is a researched evaluation of the staffing strategies, including changes, or additional recommendations to the management.

INTEROFFICE MEMORANDUM
TO: NEW HEALTH MEDICAL SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT
FROM:
After careful review, the staffing strategy presented does not fully align with the company's new strategic direction. Staffing is the process of acquiring, deploying, and retaining a workforce of sufficient quantity and quality to create positive impacts on the organization’s effectiveness (Henenman & Judge, 2009). In this case, the staffing strategy cannot be solely based on hiring local candidates, but on creating incentives and branching out to candidates in other areas. Based on the needs of the organization, the following four recommendations were given for evaluation:
1. Place advertisements in the local newspapers.
2. Contact staffing agencies that specialize in place technicians into health care facilities.
3. Organize a job fair and invite local professionals to attend.
4. Offer a $1,000 signing bonus to anyone who joins the organization and stays for at least 180 days.
After further research, strategies, which exclusively look to hire local candidates without incentives, should be deemed ineffective, as there is a lack in the areas for job seekers. The above recommendations need to be supplemented to serve the needs of the organization. To enhance local advertisements a job fairs, a hiring bonus is a measure…...

The head receptionist was able to maintain the records in a timely fashion and was able to keep records up to date. Good Health Medical Services has grown over the years from seeing an average of twenty patients a week to over two hundred patients a week. The staff has also grown and now has over ten specialty physicians that range from Pediatrics to Oncology. The record keeping staff has grown as well going from one person to three people.

As a part of that strategy, New Health Medical Systems (NHMS) has opened a new cardiovascular unit where patients can receive care for heart attacks, strokes, and other types of cardiovascular diseases. NHMS was quickly able to recruit a quality physician to head the unit as well as additional professional staff, however finding qualified technicians have become much more difficult than originally anticipated. The problem does not seem to be so much in terms of the position being attractive to candidates, but rather a lack of skilled technicians in the immediate region. Most of the skilled technicians are already employed, and are not actively seeking jobs with other organizations. In order to fill the 35 technician positions, the director of staffing has created a new staffing strategy that includes the following: 1. Place advertisement in the local newspapers 2. Contact staffing agencies that specializes in placing technicians into health care facilities 3. Organize a job fair and invite local...

News Memo

...Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Feb. 6th in Philadelphia describes LaGuardia Airport as "a third world airport." His speech may be considered insulting. However, according to Marc Santora, the writer of Some See Biden’s ‘Third World’ Description of La Guardia as Too Kind in the New York Times on Feb. 7, 2014, some people think that this comment is the truth. Most of the basic public facilities in LaGuardia Airport are outdated and travelers can't find any hotels nearby or any spas to relax in. That's why Vice President Mr. Biden uses the expression to illustrate the unpleasant situation in LaGuardia Airport. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo agrees with Mr. Biden since LaGuardia Airport is ranked as the worst airport in America. Although sometimes it is annoying to wait in a long check-in line, some airports are more enjoyable for visitors to be there. For example, Hong Kong International Airport provides a golf playing field for passengers in transit; it takes less than 28 minutes to travel from downtown to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport by Express Rail. In contrast, it is inconvenient to travel to LaGuardia Airport by public transportation and it takes about 90 minutes. Cindy Josseran, a legal assistant at the International Criminal Court, adds that even though some airports in Africa may have fewer comforts, other amenities could make travelers feel delighted. In addition, Nina Sudarsan, a Columbia law student, complained that modern facilities in Third World Airports...

...New Health Medical Systems Memo HRM 548 March 9, 2015 New Health Medical Systems Memo Memorandum To: New Health Medical Systems Management From: Human Resources Date: March 10, 2015 Re: Staffing Strategy A thorough review and evaluation has been taken over the new staffing strategy presented in regards to changes to the New Health Medical Systems Corporation. The company is seeking to strategize a plan that will take the company in a new strategic direction. Rivenbark, (2004) stated that the human resources employee’s role includes, acquisition, assessment, development and retention within the organization. (p. 1). Since recruitment has presented a challenge within the local area, we may need to consider a wider and very diverse demographic in order to fill those positions. There is the option of utilizing social media outlets and radio outlets. Social media and radio outlets have a farther marketing reach. In addition to the media outlets, one may need to consider the outlying areas where there may be talent that fits our criteria. Once the ad goes viral on social media and the media plays the ads on the air; this will open the door for employee referrals. One important thing to consider is that if the audience that the media reaches does not have a need for the position, he or she may know someone who does. If this is the case then we can pay employee referrals. The referral amount should be large enough to entice the referrals to apply, which will......

Whole Medical Systems

... Whole Medical Systems Presented By: Habwe Akinkugbe RN Olubisola Agboola Fatmata Kamara RN IDIS 450 Prof. Debra A. Coppedge, MSN, RN Bowie State University June 24th, 2015 Whole medical systems can be defined as complete systems of theory and practice that have evolved independently over time in different cultures and apart from conventional medicine or Western medicine (George et.al, 2013). These include ancient healing systems, homeopathy and naturopathy. Ancient Healing Systems Homeopathy Homeopathy is an alternative medical system developed in Germany at the end of the 18th century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. The medical philosophy and practice was based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. It is also based on the principle and theory that you can treat “like with like” or The Law of Similar(Gregg, 2010). This means that a substance which causes symptoms when taken in a large quantity can be used as a cure for the same symptoms when used in a small quantity (Saha, 2014). Homeopathy is one of the oldest and most popular complementary alternative medicines worldwide (Schmacke et.al 2014) that is safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with the patient’s body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve one’s overall health. Homeopathic remedies are derived from substances that come from plants, minerals, or animals, such as red onion, arnica (mountain herb), crushed whole bees, white arsenic, poison ivy, belladonna (deadly......

Hca/210 Proposal for a New Health Care System

...for a New Health Care System XXXXX HCA/210 Proposal for a New Health Care System The government or insurance companies are not entirely responsible of reducing the expenditures on health care. Health care is the responsibility of the entire nation, in which everybody should contribute to change the system, and the quality of their lives making changes for their own benefit. People should have a better education, alimentation, and access to the basic health care, if these could be possible the country could have a better life status. Parents, relatives, teachers, nurses, doctors, insurance companies, government and many more institutions could contribute to this change providing valuable information to the people helping them to obtain a better quality of life. With this object in mind, the entire society will make a difference in the health care system, as well as improve the quality of life for everybody. My proposal includes four changes needed to restructure the system and offer a better quality of life to everybody. These changes are standardize the salaries of specialist, physicians, and medical personnel; cut some funds in some areas of the system; implement educational programs in schools, jobs, and medical facilities; and the implementation of a system in which every individual is covered by some form of health insurance. Health care needs a better structure in its system, standardizing the payment of the specialist and medical staff......

The Medical System

...Quality of Romanian medical services “Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.” ~William A. Foster Introduction In our life, health of people is the most important because it means everything since on it depends the well being of persons, families, companies, countries. All medical services should be accessible and offered at a very high level of quality which to allow and ensure future proper health status and people in good condition as active work force. If we are not able to do so we take the risk that the whole society and economy pay the price by having weak, not healthy work force, able to deliver only poor and medium results. This is the reason for which we should do our best to manage as good as possible for higher quality and continuous improvement. This paper presents Romanian payment and compensation system in comparison with some other countries’ systems and ways to improving quality of health services. Quality of Romanian and other countries health systems Medical care in Romania is generally not up to Western standards, and basic medical supplies are limited, especially outside major cities. Some medical providers that meet Western quality standards are available in Bucharest and other cities but can be difficult to locate. Sanitary conditions in hospitals are variable.

The Board of Directors recently announced a new strategic direction to become a regional center for critically ill patients. As a part of that strategy, the organization has opened a new cardiovascular unit, where patients can receive care for heart attacks, strokes and other types of cardiovascular disease. It was quite easy for the unit to recruit quality physicians but there is a problem finding qualified technicians. The technicians in the immediate region are already employed and aren’t actively seeking jobs with other organizations. The director of staffing for the organization has been asked to create a new staffing strategy to fill the 35 new positions in this department. After considering alternatives, she is recommending the following. 1. Place advertisements in the local newspapers. 2. Contact staffing agencies that specialize in placing technicians into health care facilities. 3. Organize a job fair and invite local professionals to attend. 4. Offer a $1,000 signing bonus to anyone who joins the organization and stays for at least 180 days.

Medical Health

...Associate Level Material Medical Report This assignment is for you to create a screening tool for potential hires in your health care facility. As the health care administrator, you would want to ensure that your future employees have a strong understanding of medical reports and medical terminology. You are writing these reports for the applicants to read, interpret, and answer a set of questions you have developed. Refer to the samples of medical records reports on pages (142-144, 196, & 261-263) of the textbook. Each medical record should be completed and contain two questions you would ask of the potential hires. The following suggestions will help you get started: • Sometimes it is easier to start at the end. Think of the diagnosis the patient will receive. If you know what the end diagnosis will be, it makes it easy to know what symptoms, signs, and diagnostic methods would be used to achieve that diagnosis. • For the History of Present Illness, consider what questions the physician might ask the patient about his or her chief complaint and symptoms and then chart that in this section. This section serves as an account of what the patient would report, based on their symptoms. Remember, symptoms are subjective, in that they are conditions experienced by the patient, and are therefore included in the patient history. • For Past Medical History, document anything the patient may indicate in terms of past medical conditions that would be......
