Implementation of better patient care policies will cause a complete health care reform in coming years. Many projects are going on different countries to achieve higher aims of quality improvement. We need to address several aspects of health care. (Yoder-Wise, 2014). There is a requirement of reduction of hospital acquired illness and proper patient engagement is a very necessary part of care. The management should plan better patient engagement and transform health through technology. In this way, health care will be more efficient , effective and patient centred. Continuous quality improvement is required for better patient satisfaction. Patient information should be quickly accessible between the facility . Comparative AnalysisThere is a requirement of efficient tools for better patient satisfaction. The efficient use of technology is required to access patient information. There can be a special button offering them for proper engagement and also enable them to download personal care information. The patient can be given authorised access depending on the patient condition and age. This patient engagement technology allows the patient to explore many care option for himself. Also, this allows the patient to connect with more people with the similar condition. These approaches have been already followed by GetWelNetwork to promote inpatient centred tools and resources.

These new and advanced approaches need to be adapted and implemented by the institute leaders. Nurses need to adapt the constantly changing work environment for the better treatment of the patient. The Theory of Magnet StatusThe nurse has to set higher standards and gain Magnet Status. Magnet status as defined by Miriam Hospital is a designation given to the hospitals for the creation of Magnet Cultures. This not only supports nursing practice but also supports decision-making at the bedside , involving the nurses to determine nursing work environment hence providing better care and satisfaction to the patient. The concept of magnet status came existence in 1980. This was to motivate the nursing staff. Studies have shown that Magnet hospitals have excellent patient satisfaction scores, safe patient environment, very few repeat admissions and patient overall have a better outcome (MacPhee et al, 2012) It is important that the nursing leadership and management should work together to achieve these defined goals. It is necessary to recognise, organise and accomplish the assigned task and also ensure staff participation needed to achieve nursing excellence. The role of the management is to identify and utilise resources required to achieve better patient satisfaction.
