Process Assessment (Health Care)

Welcome! If you are familiar with the subject of this article, you can contribute to this open access knowledge base by deleting incorrect information, restructuring or completely rewriting any text. Read more.

Disease relevance of Process Assessment (Health Care)

  • There was a close correlation between process measures of inflammation and mechanical hyperalgesia in both the untreated and capsaicin treated arthritic groups [1].
  • The following process measures compared favorably with measures of the general population: dilated eye and foot exams and measurements of glycated hemoglobin levels; concentrations of total cholesterol; fasting triglycerides and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol; and proteinuria (by dipstick) [2].

High impact information on Process Assessment (Health Care)

  • Process measures included frequency of HbA(1c), lipids, microalbuminuria, and serum creatinine measurements and frequency of foot and eye examinations [3].
  • Judgments related more closely to changes in ESR and other process measures than to changes in functional ability [4].
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the predictive value for joint damage progression of commonly used disease activity or process measures in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) [5].
  • STUDY OBJECTIVES: To determine if the use of verapamil in patients with contraindications is associated with adverse sequelae, thereby assessing whether process measures of the quality of care are correlated with patient outcomes [6].
  • Such estimations are components of the assessment process for persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) substances, which are also referred to as persistent organic pollutants (POPs) [7].

Biological context of Process Assessment (Health Care)

  • METHODS: The initial clinical assessment process, investigation, management and communication regarding children referred with suspected epilepsy to general paediatric clinics or a paediatric seizure clinic was compared using the British Paediatric Neurology Association (BPNA) audit tool [8].

Associations of Process Assessment (Health Care) with chemical compounds

  • Recent reports issued by the Surgeon General and by the Institute of Medicine identify a need for refinements in the assessment process, the use of outcomes-based quality measures, and payment policies designed to improve access and quality [9].
  • Drafting a parenteral nutrition order form utilizing a physician assessment process [10].
  • A factor analysis of process measures confirmed earlier findings based on self-report data concerning parental disciplinary style [11].
  • OUTCOMES MEASURED: Utilizing measures from the American Diabetes Association and the Diabetes Quality Improvement Project, comprehensive protocols were developed for implementation of process measures and management of glucose by the DRN [12].
  • Re: Lawson IJ, McGeoch KL. A medical assessment process for a large volume of medico-legal compensation claims for hand-arm vibration syndrome [13].

Gene context of Process Assessment (Health Care)

  • Patterns of disease onset and process measures, such as ESR and CRP, help to predict outcome [14].
  • Building on the assessment process in Part 1 (October 1984 JONA), the authors present elements of program planning, illustrating the process with a low-cost model program to improve morale that addresses workload, learning opportunities, and organizational rewards for staff nurses [15].
  • OBJECTIVES: To determine the intraobserver and interobserver reliability of numerous radiographic process measures used in the assessment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis [16].
  • This paper reports the results of the assessment process and discusses the difficulty of discriminating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from diffuse neurosensory impairment arising from HAVS [17].
  • Furthermore, study process measures outweighed the ILS in the prediction of study results (post-test, GPA and credit points) [18].
