Case Study Assignment (Part 4):
Directions: Below is a case study presentation of a patient with a condition covered in Chapter 9. Read the case study, and answer the questions below. Some questions will ask for information not included within this chapter. Use your textbook, a medical dictionary, or any other reference material you choose to answer these questions.
Patient is a 36-year-old businessman who was first seen in the office with complaints of feeling generally run down, ascites, intermittent diarrhea, and weight loss. He states he has been aware of these symptoms for approximately six months, but admits it may have been coming on for closer to one year. A screening test for mononucleosis was negative. A chest X-ray was negative for pneumonia or bronchitis, but did reveal enlarged nodules in the left thoracic cavity. In spite of a 35-pound weight loss, he has abdominal swelling and splenomegaly detected with abdominal palpation. Abdominal ultrasound confirmed generalized splenomegaly and a 3-cm tumor in the spleen. A lymphangiogram identified the thoracic nodules to be enlarged lymph nodes. Biopsies taken from the splenic tumor and thoracic lymph nodes confirmed the diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The patient underwent splenectomy for removal of the primary tumor. He will be referred to an oncologist to begin treatment for the lymphadenomas.
Critical Thinking Questions
Answer the questions below regarding this case study. Do not just copy words out of the case study; translate all medical terms. To answer some of these questions, you may need to look up information from another chapter of this textbook.
1. What complaints caused the patient to go to the doctor?
2. One of these terms in your first answer has not yet been defined. Look it up in the gastroenterology chapter and define the term.
3. Which tests were negative? What does the term negative mean in this situation?
4. Which tests revealed pathology?
5. What surgical procedure did he undergo?
6. What type of doctor was he referred to following surgery? Why?

  Performance Reports/Dashboards Performance reports are a valuable tool for gau

Performance Reports/Dashboards
Performance reports are a valuable tool for gauging the financial well-being and progress of a health care organization. When properly designed, these reports can provide data on key measures, quality indicators, performance of operations, patient satisfaction, personnel, and facility capacity. 
Have you ever seen the cockpit of an airplane? The dashboard is covered with a variety of knobs and gauges. Having a pilot who understands the meaning of the data contained on the dashboard is essential for passenger safety and for reaching the correct destination in a timely fashion. Similarly, a dashboard for your organization can supply a wide variety of performance information to assist in the financial decision making process.

In this Discussion, you will describe a  dashboard that would be useful for you in your current position and organization (or one with which you are familiar).

To prepare:

Review this week’s Media program, Dashboards.
Consider your own organization (or one with which you are familiar) and the key information that would be useful for decision making.
Develop a list of key performance indicators in the following categories that would be useful for your situation. Include:

2–3 financial indicators
2–3 operational indicators
2–3 satisfaction indicators
2–3 quality indicators
