Examples of Critical Thinking in Health Care Delivery

medical thinkers

When critical thinking skills are applied in health care delivery, outcomes are improved. 

It’s easy to see why critical thinking is highly valued by employers. Health care delivery sites can no longer afford to be mistaken about best thinking, when error rates are already in question, when difficult problems and decisions must be addressed, and where poor judgments can lead to irreparable damage and even cost lives.

Reasoning Skills & Mindset at Work in Health Care

  • accurately diagnosing emergent conditions
  • determining & evaluating therapeutic actions 
  • analyzing & managing health risks
  • hiring & promoting leaders
  • designing innovative clinical systems
  • achieving goals of agency initiatives
  • allocating resources
  • anticipating & preventing errors
  • using & managing information systems
  • understanding treatment implications
  • developing data driving protocols
  • anticipating the implications of actions taken
  • analyzing & resolving personnel issues
  • explaining policy & protocols
  • designing & evaluating departmental reports

This list goes on almost indefinitely in high-stakes practice settings which require employees to make critically important and time sensitive judgments.  

Many health care centers use objective critical thinking data as a component of hiring and for staff development when their purpose is to assess critical thinking as a way to improve clinical judgment skills and minimize error in the clinical setting.

That’s why hospitals, medical centers and medical schools depend on INSIGHT Health Professional , INSIGHT Health Staff , the Health Sciences Reasoning Test (HSRT) , and the HSRT- Associate Degree (HSRT-AD)   to measure critical thinking in the students and professionals. In addition to the high quality, appropriately normed data from the test instruments, clients value the ability to coordinate testing from multiple sites and the option of working with our technical staff to optimize their testing program.
