Healthcare Insurance  

DLS1Health is rooted in everyday life. If you, or any of our family members become ill, you lose the focus on what is important to you—learning, providing for our family, building a home and family, and realizing our true potential.

In order for you to do all those things, you must take better care of our health. Therefore, the importance of healthcare insurance cannot be minimized. No one plans to get sick or hurt, but most people need medical care at some point in their lives. When that happens, when you need to see a doctor, you can afford to go with healthcare insurance.

Health insurance is there for the unpredictable, unexpected, and fundamentally uncontrollable problems the come up in people’s lives. You pay for it but you hope that you will never need it. And although you are still young and healthy, you will never know when you will require medical care.

One of the reasons why it is important to get health insurance is to avoid the risk of a financial ruin. When an unexpected medical care is needed such as in a sudden or serious illness or a traumatic event, paying high medical bills is expected. The inability to pay these bills is one of the reasons why people file for bankruptcy which can ruin your credit history and set you back for years.

Another reason is to have access to preventive and primary care. This means you are more likely to stay healthy and catch health problems early. The earlier an illness is detected, they are easier and less expensive to treat. Even young people benefit from this kind of healthcare coverage.

There are many other reasons why health insurance is important even if you are not sick. Having good health insurance provides you with an affordable way to get medical care when you need it.

Importance Of Good Communication In Healthcare Settings

DLSAccording to the recent evidenced-based research results, there is really a strong and powerful relationship between having a good communication in healthcare team and patient’s satisfaction, safety and fast recovery. An expert says that “no matter how knowledgeable a clinician might be, if he or she is not able to open good communication with the patient, he or she may be of no help.” It simply means that when doctors, nurses and other member of the healthcare team can listen and provide better explanation to patients, they can prevent unwanted emergency situations such as emergency coding, wrong medication and severe health complication to patients. Furthermore, good communication among the healthcare team promotes smooth and positive working connection.

Since there are lot of cases reported about miscommunications among nurses, doctors and other team members, most hospital owners require them to have team buildings and seminars related to importance of good communication to minimize chaos and complain from patients about dissatisfaction, malpractice and ineffective healthcare team communication. Also, they are being reminded that even if they are performing well, they still need to learn more and improve their communication skills.

According to studies, patients suffer the most when the medical and healthcare team fails to communicate well. If all members of the healthcare team have good communication, they can achieve positive patient outcome and prevent situations such as:

  • Malpractice and other human errors
  • Sudden death of a patient
  • Severe complication of patient’s disease
  • Chaos within the healthcare team

Listening is still part of communication. The healthcare team must listen well to the primary complains of their patient in order to provide better diagnosis and care to them. Once they have all the important information, they should collaborate with each other to deliver the best medical care to the patient.
