In third world countries due low level of education resulting in a large percentage of patients used inhaler incorrectly.The education level of patients had significant relationship with incorrect inhaler technique. Improving the education level of the society will improve inhaler techniques. The study is indicating the need to promote education level in third world countries and also awake up call for the health poly makers to introduce health education program about asthma and inhaler technique in their priority list. The short-term solution to this problem is effective patient and provider education. Health education efforts to teach patients how to use inhaler correctly should be stepped up. One example is use of labels with correct technique instructions on inhaler devices. There should be complete descriptions of inhaler use in text-books of both nurses and doctors.

Health Information System (HIS) is widely recognized as a technology enabler which improves patient care coordination, enhances provider productivity and facilitates knowledge management activities. A multitude of stand-alone administrative and clinical management systems exist, but their true value is realized when they become an integrated electronic health record solution that can address information requirements across multiple functions. In Malawi, the national Health Management Information System is integrated while at the district level there are stand-alone systems. Stand-alone systems are common in most countries and are a major cause of fragmentation especially in developing countries. Evidence shows that information derived from fragmented systems is untimely and not effective for management use. To address this issue, organisations worldwide are collaborating to integrate stand-alone systems into one. This book is based on a study of two significant systems at the district level, i.e. District Health Information System and drug Logistics Management Information System. The objective was to assess the implications of their integration for improved healthcare services.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, University of applied sciences, Munich, language: English, abstract: HP is an international giant in the information technology industry. The company offers a wide product portfolio from personal computers (PC), notebooks, serves, storage, printers, scanners, and digital camera to IT services. The company features a phenomenal growth history and has developed from a 'garage' with a working capital of $538 in 1938 to a leading global provider with $100 billion revenue. However the global competition becomes fiercer today and HP has to face with different competitors in all business segments. Can HP continue its success story and beat the global competitors? This question will be tried to answer in the present study. In this study the internal and external environment factors effecting HP's business are analyzed. Thereby industry's economic features and competitive environment, e.g. market segments, market size and growth, trends, competition, and driving forces are studied. Moreover, the SWOT of HP and its biggest global competitors as well as financial performance of HP over the last three business years (2005 - 2007) are analyzed. The diversified business portfolio of HP is evaluated using the Nine Cell Matrix and concrete recommendations for the senior management board of HP are provided. It could be shown that despite fierce competition HP could remain its pole position in the world market. HP is worldwide No. 1 in the printing, PC, and server market and No. 2 in storage business. HP exhibited an impressive financial performance in the last 3 years. For the future HP should intensify strategic alliances and partnerships and boost the acquisition to strengthen competitive capability and to gain market share quickly. The company should follow strategies like rapid expanding into new geography markets, rapid product development and push the product innovation, penetration also in low-end market segments, expanding into online sale and business, and offering complete solution based on broad portfolio in order to meet customer needs. Moreover HP should improve its supply chain management, optimize manufacturing cost, and strengthen the effective marketing and channel partnership to boost the completive strengths.

Applied Welfare Economics

What is the effect of a new infrastructure on the well-being of a local community? Is a tax reform desirable? Does the privatization of a telecommunication provider increase social welfare? To answer these questions governments and their policy advisors should have in mind an operative definition of social welfare, and cannot rely on simple official statistics, such as GDP. The price we observe are often misleading as welfare signals, and costs and benefits for the society should be based on 'shadow prices', revealing the social opportunity costs of goods and of changes of the world. This book explains how to apply these welfare economics ideas to the real world. After a theoretical discussion of the concept of social welfare, a critical analysis of the traditional doctrine of welfare economics embodied in the Two Fundamental Theorems, and a presentation of social cost-benefit analysis, the book introduce the readers to an applied framework. This includes the empirical estimation of shadow prices of goods, of the social cost of labour and capital, the assessment of risk. This book also includes the state of the art of international experience with CBA, including ex-post evaluation of major projects, economic rates of return in different sectors, and a case study on privatisation, is presented. This book offers a unique and original blend of theory, empirics and experience. The theoretical discussion clarifies why shadow prices are not virtual market equilibrium prices, as they arise as the solution of a planning problem, often with governments and economic agents constrained in their information and powers. The empirical chapters show how to compute proxies of the shadow prices in simple ways. The experience chapters draw from first hand research, gained by the Author and his collaborators over many years of advisory work for the European Commission and other international and national institutions.

This book includes a study of trustworthiness, percentile response time, service availability, and authentication in the networks between users and cloud service providers, and at service stations or sites that may be owned by different service providers. The first part of the book contains an analysis of percentile response time, which is one of the most important SLA (service level agreements) metrics. Effective and accurate numerical solutions for the calculation of the percentile response time in single-class and multi-class queueing networks are obtained. Then, the numerical solution is incorporated in a resource allocation problem. Specifically, the authors present an approach for the resource optimization that minimizes the total cost of computer resources required while preserving a given percentile of the response time. In the second part, the approach is extended to consider trustworthiness, service availability, and the percentile of response time in Web services. These QoS metrics are clearly defined and their quantitative analysis provided. The authors then take into account these QoS metrics in a trust-based resource allocation problem in which a set of cloud computing resources is used by a service provider to host a typical Web services application for single-class customer services and multipleclass customer services respectively. Finally, in the third part of the book a thorough performance evaluation of two notable public key cryptography-based authentication techniques; Public-Key Cross Realm Authentication in Kerberos (PKCROSS) and Public Key Utilizing Tickets for Application Servers (PKTAPP, a.k.a. KX.509/KCA); is given, in terms of computational and communication times. The authors then demonstrate their performance difference using queuing networks. PKTAPP has been proposed to address the scalability issue of PKCROSS. However, their in-depth analysis of these two techniques shows that PKTAPP does not perform better than PKCROSS in a large-scale system. Thus, they propose a new public key cryptography-based group authentication technique. The performance analysis demonstrates that the new technique can scale better than PKCORSS and PKTAPP.

Investing in E-Health
137,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As the Internet's presence in health care grows more pervasive, an increasing number of health care providers have begun to implement eHealth innovations in their practice. The interactive health communication system (IHCS), one such eHealth solution, provides consumers with information, informal support, and a venue for communication. Investing in eHealth: What it Takes to Sustain Consumer Health Informatics examines the evolution of the IHCS and the significant changes in organizational culture and operational systems that may be required for successful and sustained implementation. This book explores the development of a model (funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality in 1998) to predict and explain the degree of success of such implementation efforts. This model allows an institution to benchmark its progress towards IHCS implementation and advises administrators where to invest resources to increase the chance of successful implementation. A set of case studies highlights key features of the model; each study describes an attempt by an organization to implement the Comprehensive Health Enhancement Support System (CHESS), a proven IHCS. After examining the success or failure of each particular implementation, the book suggests steps that could have been taken to address weaknesses identified by the model. Investing in eHealth culminates in a set of general guidelines for any health care provider striving to successfully employ the model, and suggests directions for future research. TOC:Section 1. Introductory Chapters.- Preamble.- Implementation Theory and Literature Review.- Systems Design and Analysis.- Description of the Model.- Description of CHESS.- Section 2. Case Studies.- Union Hospital.- Strand Hardin Health Care.- Grace Hospital.- Associated Practice.- Simpson Clinic.- State Caregiver Support Agency.- Section 3. Concluding Section.- Key Learning and Advice for Implementers.- Appendix.- Index.
