the role of privacy, protection of patient information, and regulations governing the collection and storage of data.


Go to the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the Health Level Seven® International (HL7) websites and prepare a 3–5 page executive summary outlining the current activities of these organizations relating to the implementation of the EHR. Prepare the executive summary as if you were presenting it to the next monthly HIM department meeting at your hospital. Be sure to include information about the role of privacy, protection of patient information, and regulations governing the collection and storage of data. Your written assignments must follow APA guidelines. Be sure to support your work with specific citations from the week’s Learning Resources and additional scholarly sources as appropriate. Refer to the Pocket Guide to APA Style to ensure in-text citations and reference list are correct.

Please keep in mind that Executive summaries are written literally for an executive who most likely DOES NOT have the time to read the original.

Executive summaries make a recommendation.

Accuracy is essential because decisions will be made based on your summary by people who have not read the original.

Executive summaries frequently summarize more than one document.

Imagine that you are a newly hired HIM professional for a medium sized physician’s practice. Many of the physicians would like to expand their electronic service offerings so that they can better serve rural patients. While many of the physicians are on board for the expansion there are several very vocal physicians who are reluctant to make the changes in their current healthcare delivery model.

Select one of the following types of healthcare technology: Tele-health, E-visits, E-health, m-health, Health Information exchange, connected health or Telepsychology and create a persuasive argument as to the benefits of this technology for patients and the practice.

Create a PowerPoint presentation.

· Presentation is 10–12 slides in length.

· Use of the speaker’s notes area contains detailed information, while the slides appear uncluttered.

Your presentation should include:

· An overview including a detailed description of the healthcare technology and why this particular technology is a good business decision.

· An explanation of why the selected technology facilitates effective communication.

· A suggested timeline for implementation.

· One slide should be dedicated to a visual representation the workflow/communication process using your selected technology.


Imagine that you are the administrator of a home health care agency. It is a startup venture, with fewer than 20 clients, and so you must decide whether to use a paper based system or should you implement an EHR system then conduct a cost-benefit analysis of implementing an electronic system versus using a paper based system.

You might want to consider whether providers will document using EHR’s in client’s homes or will they carry paper charts? Patient privacy and billing are also important considerations. Discuss the problems that may arise in the future as a result unwillingness to adopt the electronic health record as well as how changes to medical care can impact record keeping. Your cost benefit analysis will include a comparison representing both the choice to adopt the electronic health records as well as the choice to use paper records. Explain the pros and cons for each and its impact on its revenue stream.

Create a PowerPoint presentation.

·     Presentation is 10–12 slides in length.

·     Use of the speaker’s notes area contains detailed information, while the slides appear uncluttered.

The presentation should include at least one slide for each of the following requirements:

·     Include an overview of the project synopsis

·     The purpose of the analysis

·     Problem issue to be addressed including cost/benefits

·     What criteria will be used to select the best alternative?

·     Include a choice

·     Summarize key facts

·     State your recommendations

·     Include a cost benefit analysis in table format.

You may access the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality website specifically the Health Information Technology Archive page and review the example of the cost-benefit analysis.


Imagine that you are a long-term care administrator. You have had several new hires on your leadership team two of which have come from an acute care setting. You are concerned that some members of your leadership team are not fully informed about the state and federal laws that govern the operation of long-term care organizations.

Write a 3–5-page memo in which you define accreditation and licensure including the four major accrediting organizations, compare and contrast the data collected in acute care organizations and how it differs in long-term care, and identify alternate storage systems best suited for long term care, including where charts are stored.

Your memo should be properly formatted and for the following:

· the heading and opening,

· context, task segment,

· summary,

· discussion segment,

· and the closing segment.
