The Quadruple Aim provides broad categories of goals to pursue to maintain and improve healthcare. Within each goal are many issues that, if addressed successfully, may have a positive impact on outcomes. For example, healthcare leaders are being tasked to shift from an emphasis on disease management often provided in an acute care setting to health promotion and disease prevention delivered in primary care settings. Efforts in this area can have significant positive impacts by reducing the need for primary healthcare and by reducing the stress on the healthcare system.
Changes in the industry only serve to stress what has always been true; namely, that the healthcare field has always faced significant challenges, and that goals to improve healthcare will always involve multiple stakeholders. This should not seem surprising given the circumstances. Indeed, when a growing population needs care, there are factors involved such as the demands of providing that care and the rising costs associated with healthcare. Generally, it is not surprising that the field of healthcare is an industry facing multifaceted issues that evolve over time.
In this module’s Discussion, you reviewed some healthcare issues/stressors and selected one for further review. For this Assignment, you will consider in more detail the healthcare issue/stressor you selected.

From the previous discussion:
The healthcare environment is significantly growing, which explains the reason for the existing significant issues. Improving the quality of healthcare requires a strong emphasis on critical aspects such as leadership, cost of care, skills and service delivery, technology, as well as patient management practices. A significant health care issue currently has been technological disruption. Substantial changes in the healthcare industry that are being undertaken are dependent on technology. This provides a unique platform where it is more accessible to attain better health outcomes across different settings.
Quality has been a critical measure in the delivery of quality healthcare outcomes. The integration of different results has aimed at providing a unique system where it would be easier to improve healthcare outcomes. The ability to incorporate technology in monitoring patient development offers a strong emphasis on essential processes which help maintain a unique level of engagement within a healthcare setting. Within my healthcare organization, patient information has been stored using healthcare information management systems compared to previous documentation of patient information in healthcare files (Engelhardt, 2017).
Management of healthcare information has become a critical factor which provides a strong consideration on critical processes which help create a reliable system. The inclusion of health information management systems has integrated vital processes which help identify important concepts which help manage patient information. Storage of patient details provides a strong consideration on specific aspects which help improve the level of commitment among healthcare providers (Sultan, 2015). The health information management system that has been put in place identify specific measures which focus on ensuring that there is quick information retrieval of patient information. Accessing patient information within a healthcare context requires authorization from a patient or when reviewing the patient situation.
The impact of technology disruption in my workplace
Integration of technology in healthcare is aimed at controlling healthcare errors. It is a crucial aspect to consider primarily based on previous errors in healthcare delivery. The use of technology is aimed at improving efficiency in the delivery of healthcare. In my workplace, management of patient health information is a significant improvement to the storage of health information which has been a considerable challenge, especially retrieval of patient files. The use of technology has made it possible to access patient information from a cloud-based database quickly (Schwamm, 2014).
The use of technology has also created challenges, especially concerning the common cyber threats. The fact that we deal with sensitive patient information, they are at a higher risk of falling victims to intruders who target such information. The present risks are significant. Thus, integration of vital information security risks will help in controlling the current risks through the development of robust techniques. The techniques are integrated into the healthcare industry to protect patient information. Thus, management of these risks has been a significant aspect to consider in ensuring that there is a better level of implementation of healthcare outcomes. Thus, technology disruption is having both positive and negative influence in healthcare.

Increased workload on nurses is one of the stressors facing nurses and is a significant problem all over the world. It includes multiple factors such as work environment, condition of the client or consumer, characteristics of the providers, nursing interventions, to name a few. Contributing further to the already heavy nursing workload are an inadequate supply of nurses, decreased patient length of stay, complex patients, increased demand for nurses, and increased overtime had added to already demanding work of nurses and eventual nursing burnout. As a result, the nurse-patient ratio, which has been used commonly in measuring the workload of the nursing workforce, has been increasing (Vaidya, 2018).
