What improvement tool would you use to identify possible reasons for the increase in complaints about the HIM department? Provide at least two improvement tools

What improvement tool would you use to identify possible reasons for the increase in complaints about the HIM department? Provide at least two improvement tools

1. Imagine you are the supervisor of the health information management (HIM) department in a large outpatient clinic. This department manages patient records.
Complaints about your department are becoming more frequent and intense than in the past. Some clinic employees have complained that the HIM department takes too
long to retrieve patient records. Others have expressed dismay over the rudeness of HIM staff. You decide to talk about these problems with employees throughout the
clinic. The clinic’s receptionists respond to you defensively. They tell you that the HIM staff won’t answer the phone and that they want some backup when they are busy
with patients. You talk to the HIM staff and find their stories are just as negative. They say they are being charged with more responsibilities but have no additional help.
They also complain that the receptionists transfer calls that they should be handling. The clinic’s nurses are also upset with the HIM staff; they claim the department does
not help them locate patient charts, causing long wait times for patients. The clinic’s physicians say they cannot assume additional tasks to alleviate the situation because
their days are already chaotic.
a. What improvement tool would you use to identify possible reasons for the increase in complaints about the HIM department? Provide at least two improvement tools
and explain why you think that those are the appropriate tools for this purpose.
b. What improvement tool would you use to define the current process for retrieving patient records?
2. PDSA is the most widely recognized improvement process today. Summarize the main steps of each PDSA phase.

Explain two ethical and two legal considerations in treating this population in group therapy

Ethical and Legal Considerations of Group Therapy
As a group therapist you are going to encounter some challenging ethical dilemmas. At times the ethical approach will be clear but at other times there will be no single right or wrong answer. When no clear path presents itself you must consider many factors including an ethical code a standard level of care dignity and respect for others best practices/professional decorum and of course the law.
There also will be times when the population being treated will impact your decisions. For example therapists who work with prison inmates might operate under different confidentiality rules than those who work with the general public. In the case of prisoners law enforcement agents and parole board members might have full or partial access to therapy group files.
Keep in mind that you are not alone in your decision making. Consulting with a colleague might be a good idea. In addition some professional associations and liability-insurance companies provide free consultations. In your future practice consider taking advantage of these services and be sure to document the steps you take.
Select a high-risk population that might benefit from group therapy (e.g. child/adolescent HIV abuse substance abuse/addiction suicide prisons or severe mental health).
