  • Create a slide presentation (12-15 slides; 20 minutes long) for a HIM team of a health care organization that is considering upgrading its existing EHR or implementing a new one. Address in the presentation: SDLC, migration plans, and best practices for successful EHR implementations.Take a minute to think about this scenario:The hospital where you work spent more than $1 million dollars designing and developing an EHR system. However, hospital leadership decided not to train employees on the new system. Why? They were operating under the assumption that in our technology-oriented society, everyone knows how to use computers. Right? The first day the system went live, everyone relied on paper records. No one documented anything in the brand new, $1 million EHR system.What went wrong?HIM professionals can help their organizations find solutions to critical, expensive problems like these. Knowledge of the systems development life cycle (SDLC) and skills in using this cycle can help to answer these questions. Remember that the EHR is a system. And like other information systems, it follows the six stages of the SDLC. These are:
    1. Identify need.
    2. Specify requirements.
    3. Design or acquire.
    4. Develop or Implement.
    5. Maintain.
    6. Monitor results.

    In particular, HIM professionals’ focus on the SDLC’s design, implementation, and maintenance phases and how those phases interact can add tremendous value to a successful EHR implementation. For example, in the design phase, HIM professionals skilled in using different tools within the EHR for workflow and process mapping can help to ensure that the business processes are organized in a way that produces the organization’s desired results each and every time.Likewise, knowledgeable HIM professionals can offer value in the SDLC’s implementation phase by citing credible, authoritative evidence to show their organizations that successful EHR implementations expend resources on end user training. The people using the system need to learn how to use the system so it can help them do their jobs more effectively and efficiently. After all, whether or not an EHR implementation is successful depends on whether the people using the system want to make it work and know how to make it work.In addition, HIM professionals can help their organizations understand the importance of regular, ongoing maintenance of its EHR system. Just as regular, ongoing maintenance of a house can prevent costly repairs and a depreciation of value, the same holds true for an EHR system.In this assessment, you will have the opportunity to educate fellow HIM team members about the SDLC and its application to EHR implementation as Vila Health considers an important strategic initiative. Should it keep and upgrade its existing EHR system, EHR Go? Or would it be better served by replacing the existing system with a new one?

    Demonstration of Proficiency

    By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria:

    • Competency 2: Evaluate the strategies for EHR design and implementation in the SDLC.
      • Describe the SDLC stages.
      • Explain the requirements for a successful EHR implementation.
      • Evaluate a migration plan for an EHR implementation.
      • Evaluate workflow and needs assessment in relation to EHR implementation.
    • Competency 5: Communicate in a professional manner to support health data management.
      • Create a clear, well organized, professional presentation that is generally free of errors in grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
      • Follow APA style and formatting guidelines for citations and references.

    Preparation

    EHR Go

    Complete these specific EHR Go activities before beginning Assessment 2. You will be incorporating information from these activities into your assessment:

    • This activity will provide you with a chance to document new information in an EHR. As you complete the activity, think about the workflow process. How could it be improved?
    • This activity will help you identify best practices for an EHR implementation. It will also introduce you to meaningful use. As you complete the activity, think about the workflow process. How could it be improved?
    Case Studies

    For Assessment 2, select a different case study than you selected for Assessment 1. This time, choose a case study that allows you to focus on various aspects of the system development life cycle (SDLC). Analyze your selected case study and then incorporate appropriate elements into your assessment. Remember: Choosing a case study that allows you to meet the assessment’s scoring guide criteria is your responsibility.

    Independent Research

    If you are less familiar with EHRs, you may wish to conduct additional independent research. The suggested resources provide a good starting point. You may also wish to consult the Health Care Administration Undergraduate Library Research Guide for research tips and help in identifying current, scholarly and/or authoritative sources.

    Audio Recording of Your Presentation

    To prepare for the audio recording of your presentation:

    • Set up and test your microphone or headset using the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer. You only need to use the headset if your audio is not clear and high quality when captured by the microphone.
    • Practice using the equipment to ensure the audio quality is sufficient.
    • Microsoft PowerPoint allows you to record your narration with your slides. If you choose to record your presentation using this tool, simply submit your presentation to the appropriate area of the courseroom. Your narration will be included with your slides.
    • Consult the Using Kaltura [PDF] for guidance in how to record your presentation and upload it in the courseroom if you elect not to use Microsoft PowerPoint to submit your slides and narration.

    Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact Disability Services to request accommodations.

    Instructions

    In this assessment you will continue on in your role as Vila Health’s EHR implementation consultant.

The HIM director has asked you to prepare a 12–15 slide deck and present it at the next HIM department meeting. You will have a maximum of 30 minutes to deliver your presentation (20 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for Q&A;). Specifically, your boss wants you to cover SDLC, migration plans, and best practices for a successful EHR implementation.
