Project #80484 - Unit 8: Information Technology (IT) and the National Health Information Network (NHIN)

Instructions

As you have discussed so far in this course, healthcare has lagged behind other

industries in terms of digitization of records, in particular patient health records.

Write a paper that includes the following:

Explain the importance of information technology (IT) in patient transitions in different

types of healthcare settings.

Provide some insight into the status of the federal government initiatives that are

underway (regional health information networks, electronic health records that are

available from anywhere, etc.) with the goal of creating a health information exchange

in the United States. 

 

Finally, knowing the status of the NHIN and initiatives, use critical thinking to analyze

how your primary healthcare provider compares.

ï‚· Review the meaningful use implementation scenarios at the following site:

o Source: S&I Framework: Scenarios. Retrieved from

http://www.siframework.org/scenarios.html

ï‚· Using one of these scenarios, describe a specific example of how your

provider’s office is state-of-the-art.

ï‚· Describe a scenario where the office is also lagging behind. Using that

scenario, identify the primary obstacles the office faces, describe several

potential solutions to this problem, and identify the one that would best fit your

provider's office.

Requirements

The Assignment should be three to four pages in length, prepared in a Microsoft Word

document, and APA-formatted.
