How Cognitive Drift Can Kill Patient Care and Profits

How Cognitive Drift Can Kill Patient Care and Profits

Cognitive drift is a mental condition where a temporary lapse in focus from delays in EHR functionality results in inaccuracies in patient records. Health care providers should be aware of cognitive drift when evaluating the efficiency of any EHR system. This problem can lead to poor patient satisfaction, poor patient outcomes, poor provider satisfaction, and ultimately lower income.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Vs. Osteoarthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis Vs. Osteoarthritis

From the top of your head: What’s the difference between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis?
If you don’t know the difference, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

In the UK, 8.75 million people have sought treatment for the ailment, affecting 33% of people
aged 45 and over, 49% of women aged over 75 and 42% of men aged over 75.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the UK. The difference between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis (the second most common form) is that osteoarthritis begins later in life and its symptoms come on much more gradually than those of rheumatoid arthritis.

Bathing Solutions have created a great infographic which details the differences between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis highlighting that, as debilitating as both conditions may be, there is still hope from the treatment options available.

Is the UK Sleeping Good?

Is the UK Sleeping Good?

Getting a good night’s sleep should be easy, right? After all it’s just sleeping. But with our fast-paced lives, and growing gadget addictions, it seems there’s always something to distract us.

We decided it was time to take action. In February 2014, we surveyed 1,300 of you to find out what it is that keeps you awake at night. The results are shocking! Only 10% of us believe we get a good night’s sleep.

The impacts of poor sleep are vast and large. It’s for this reason that we conduct our annual sleep survey.

Infographic Review

Infographic Design: A

The nice thing about the design of this infographic is that the different cities are shown on a map. Each city has a short description describing the type of medical procedure that the area is known for. The colors are muted but work well with the professional topic.

Infographic Information: A

I was surprised by the information only because of my ignorance of the topic. I know of people who travel to other countries for medical procedures but did not know that there are certain areas that specialize in certain procedures. The information also discusses the difference in costs which is another major factor that attracts people to these places. Those who cannot afford it in the their own country will often travel to others.
