Discussion: Applying Measurement Tools

One example of a measurement tool is the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) comprehensive care measures. Review the components of HEDIS comprehensive diabetes care; then consider the following scenario.

You are a staff nurse working in a private primary care practice. It is a small practice with 2 MDs (internists), 2 nurses, 1 medical assistant, and an office staff for billing. There are approximately 1,000 patients in the practice. You have had no EHR until the last year, but all charts are manual, historically. Your physicians are starting to inquire about quality incentives, particularly regarding patients with diabetes.By Day 3

Take on the role of the staff nurse in the scenario, and post an explanation of how you would go about finding out how many diabetics are in your practice and how many meet all components of HEDIS comprehensive diabetes care.

Support your response with references from the professional nursing literature. Your posts need to be written at the capstone level (see checklist).

Notes Initial Post: This should be a 3-paragraph (at least 350 words) response. Be sure to use evidence from the readings and include in-text citations. Utilize essay-level writing practice and skills, including the use of transitional material and organizational frames. Avoid quotes; paraphrase to incorporate evidence into your own writing. A reference list is required. Use the most current evidence (usually ≤ 5 years old). (Refer to AWE Checklist, Capstone)

Use what you learned from the video, the module’s required readings, and your own research to answer the following questions in your paper.

  1. Distinguish between Medicare and Medicaid.
  2. Discuss how Medicare has evolved to accommodate the changing needs of society. Do not just go through the timeline – read the materials, think about how society has changed, and explain how Medicare has changed to meet those needs.
  3. Discuss the impact of health care reform initiatives on Medicare/Medicaid.

Testicular Cancer Case Studies

A 21-year-old male noted pain in his right testicle while studying hard for his midterm college examinations. On self-examination, he noted a “grape sized” mass in the right testicle. Thisfinding was corroborated by his healthcare provider. This young man had a history of delayed descent of his right testicle until the age of 1 year old.

Studies

Results

Routine laboratory studies

Within normal limits (WNL)

Ultrasound the testicle

Solid mass, right testicle associated with calcifications

HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin)

550mIU/mL (normal: <5)

CT scan of the abdomen

Enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes

CT scan of the chest

Multiple pulmonary nodules

Diagnostic Analysis

At semester break, this young man underwent right orchiectomy. Pathology was compatible with embryonal cell carcinoma. CT directed biopsy of the most prominent pulmonary nodule indicated embryonal cell carcinoma, compatible with metastatic testicular carcinoma. During a leave of absence from college, and after banking his sperm, this young man underwent aggressive chemotherapy. Repeat testing 12 weeks after chemotherapy showed complete resolution of the pulmonary nodules and enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes.

Critical Thinking Questions

  1. What impact did an undescended testicle have on this young man’s risk for developingtesticular cancer?
  2. What might be the side effects of cytotoxic chemotherapy?
  3. What was the purpose of preserving his sperm before chemotherapy?
  4. Is this young man’s age typical for the development of testicular carcinoma?
