Describe one specific organization (e.g., a community clinic, a hospital, the county health lab) that would use the EHR. Make sure to describe its purpose, what type of organization it is, the mix and demographics of the clients, types of services provided, local resources, and other information to help thoroughly understand the data needs of the organization.

Assignment 2: Required Assignment 1—Migrating to an Electronic Health Record

In this assignment, you will design a plan for the implementation of a new public health informatics process and prepare a researched report on the implementation for the stakeholders.

Review the following scenario:

Centervale County is migrating from a paper-based health records system to an Electronic Health Records (EHR) system within the next five years.

Using scholarly research, design an 8–12-page plan for the implementation of the EHR in a specific organization within Centervale County that includes the following:

Overview

  1. Discuss the common elements of a county-wide EHR.
  2. Describe one specific organization (e.g., a community clinic, a hospital, the county health lab) that would use the EHR. Make sure to describe its purpose, what type of organization it is, the mix and demographics of the clients, types of services provided, local resources, and other information to help thoroughly understand the data needs of the organization.
  3. Describe how the EHR would be used by the organization.
  4. Describe the type of data that the organization collects and propose a simple informatics system (data set) to manage this type of data. Give a tabular example of at least five variables in this data set.

Risk Management Plan

  1. Identify and explain the interoperability (technology), confidentiality, and security issues of such a system.
  2. Propose recommendations to address the interoperability, confidentiality, and security issues and explain how these recommendations, if implemented, will mitigate problems.

Communication Plan

  1. Identify and assess the internal and external stakeholders and leadership that influence the system’s development, implementation, and evaluation.
  2. Describe the communication plans for working with leadership and stakeholders.

Make sure you write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Assignment 2 Grading Criteria

Assignment Components Proficient Maximum Points
Discuss the common elements of an EHR. Common elements of an EHR are complete and accurate. 8
Describe one, specific organization that would use the EHR (e.g., a community clinic, a hospital, the county health lab). Make sure to describe its purpose, what type of organization it is, the mix and demographics of the clients, types of services provided, local resources, and other information to help thoroughly understand the needs of the organization. Organization identified is clear and would likely use the EHR. Specific pieces of information (such as purpose, type, demographics, etc.) are present and provide a complete picture of the organization. 12
Describe how the EHR would be used by the organization. How the EHR would be used by the organization is clear, appropriate, and grounded in scholarly evidence. 20
Describe the type of data that the organization collects and propose a simple informatics system (data set) to manage this type of data. Give a tabular example of at least five variables in this data set. Type of data identified is accurate and realistic for the organization to collect. Proposed informatics system is reasonable and simple; in theory, it completely manages the data collected and would provide the needed information. Tabular example is accurate in both organization and execution; at least five accurate variables in this data set are present. 20
Identify and explain the interoperability (technology), confidentiality, and security issues of such a system. Issues of the system identified are clear, specific, and grounded in research. Issues are current and represent a genuine threat to the success of the system. 20
Propose recommendations to address the interoperability, confidentiality, and security issues and explain how these recommendations, if implemented, will mitigate problems. Recommendations clearly and directly address the interoperability, confidentiality, and security issues. Explanation includes a reasonable argument as to why and how these particular recommendations would mitigate the problems. 28
Identify and assess the internal and external stakeholders and leadership that influence the system’s development, implementation, and evaluation. The appropriate key stakeholders and leadership who clearly would influence the system’s development, implementation, and evaluation are identified. They represent a complete listing of both internal and external key stakeholders and leadership. Assessment explains how those identified would influence the system’s development, implementation, and evaluation. 28
Describe the communication plans for working with leadership and stakeholders. Communication plan is specific and clearly outlined. All members of leadership and stakeholders are included. Plan provides appropriate levels of communication: informing without overwhelming receivers with unnecessary communications. 16
