Caring for patients with dementia emerging from general anaesthesia in the recovery room can be very challenging. Sedation is sometimes necessary in order to nurse patients effectively and avoid any negative consequences of poor post-anaesthetic care. No local or national guidelines could be found to suggest best nursing practice in this situation. Three small-scale innovations were introduced into the recovery room in one hospital as part of a quality improvement project to give alternatives to chemical re...
Open Access (OA) is widely considered a breakthrough in the history of academic publishing, rendering the knowledge produced by the worldwide scientific community accessible to all. In numerous countries, national governments, funding institutions and research organisations have undertaken enormous efforts to establish OA as the new publishing standard. The benefits and new perspectives, however, cause various challenges. This essay addresses several issues, including that OA is deeply embedded in the logic...
Aspects of the research and practice paradigm known as the diffusion of innovations are applicable to the complex context of health care, for both explanatory and interventionist purposes. This article answers the question, "What is diffusion?" by identifying the parameters of diffusion processes: what they are, how they operate, and why worthy innovations in health care do not spread more rapidly. We clarify how the diffusion of innovations is related to processes of dissemination and implementation, susta...
Innovations are continuously launched over markets, such as new products over the retail market or new artists over the music scene. Some innovations become a success; others don't. Forecasting which innovations will succeed at the beginning of their lifecycle is hard. In this paper, we provide a data-driven, large-scale account of the existence of a special niche among early adopters, individuals that consistently tend to adopt successful innovations before they reach success: we will call them Hit-Savvy. ...
Digital innovations with internet/mobile phones offer a potential cost-saving solution for overburdened health systems with high service delivery costs to improve efficiency of HIV/STI (sexually transmitted infections) control initiatives. However, their overall evidence has not yet been appraised. We evaluated the feasibility and impact of all digital innovations for all HIV/STIs.
Quality improvement (QI) activities are critical to achieve the Triple Aim and to the Institute of Medicine's six "Aims for Quality Improvement": Safe, Effective, Patient-Centered, Timely, Efficient, and Equitable. These QI activities are essential to create a learning health care system. Academic publishing is critical to foster continuous QI and sharing, and yet it tends to favor more traditional research articles. Publishing QI activities has great value, encourages greater rigor, and helps facilitate gr...
By following a recently published paper entitled "The effect of publishing a highly cited paper on a journal's impact factor: a case study of the Review of Particle Physics" in Learned Publishing, we argue that it is not suitable for journals to bid for the right to publish a review that is likely to be highly cited. A few suggestions are also provided to deal with the special case of the Review of Particle Physics phenomenon.
The value of the health care services provided by academic health centers (AHCs) in the United States increasingly is being questioned. AHCs play a prominent role in developing new surgical innovations, including new minimally invasive techniques, which are costly up front but can lead to significant benefits like decreased morbidity and lengths of stays. This study explored the role of AHCs in the adoption of these surgical innovations as a novel measure of their value.
Technological innovations typically benefit those who have good access to and an understanding of the underlying technologies. As such, technology-centered health care innovations are likely to preferentially benefit users of privileged socioeconomic backgrounds. Which policies and strategies should health care organizations adopt to promote equitable distribution of the benefits from technological innovations? In this essay, we draw on two important concepts-co-creation (the joint creation of value by mult...
The purpose of this commentary is to propose a flexible practice innovations decision model (PIDM) for use in health services planning and management.
Living-donor liver transplantation is an important component of all liver transplant programs especially in those that care for the pediatric population. Over the last 30 years, innovations in surgical technique have converted living donation from an experimental procedure to a standard of care. Many of these innovations occurred in countries where culturally, deceased donation is limited leaving no alternatives but living donation. The Organ Transplantation Center at the National Center for Child Health an...
Health care providers are in the midst of a massive effort to diffuse innovative approaches to patient care. While most innovations fail, a few diffuse successfully and are sustained. This month's DataGraphic describes the spread or outcomes of four important health care delivery innovations adopted by hospitals or primary care clinicians: hospital palliative care, electronic consults for preoperative anesthesiology assessment, Medicare's free annual wellness visit, and a primary care improvement network.
Publishing, as everything else these days, is living in the fast lane. From writing to printing these words, our topmost original articles will have changed. Citations bode very well for Acta Physiologica, suggesting another stark increase in our impact factor after the large leap the impact factor took last year.(1) Yet, what may interest authors and readers even more are the prospects for our Acta-Physiologica-Award, which is probably the greatest prize ever to be presented in recognition of scientific pu...
New scientific knowledge and innovation are often slow to disseminate. In other cases, providers rush into adopting what appears to be a clinically relevant innovation, based on a single clinical trial. In reality, adopting innovations without appropriate translation and repeated testing of practical application is problematic. In this article we provide examples of clinical innovations (for example, tight glucose control in critically ill patients) that were adopted inappropriately and that caused what we ...
