Health Information Systems Topic Selection
Review each of the cases below:
- Beaumont health system selects InterSystems HealthShare
- Case study: Veterans health information systems and technology architecture (VistA)
information privacy & security in healthcare. Case study:
Immunization information systems at University of Pennsylvania
- The Persona Review
- The U.S. health care system and lagging life expectancy: A case study
Select one of these cases and thoroughly assess the problems or issues
that were identified in the case as well as the solutions or conclusions
that were made regarding the case. Next, identify a related health
information systems topic that encompasses a health care information
systems issue; one that you feel would be a gap (a breach) or parity (a
value) in or to the case. The topic should align with the selected case,
for example: systems data collection or patient privacy/breach of
patient privacy. Then, write a thesis statement and introductory
paragraph which explains the issue you plan to propose a solution to,
including the topic you choose, its relation to the selected case, and
the specific gap or parity you identified. Your thesis statement and
introductory paragraph should be 300 to 600 words in length and must
provide a rationale for why you chose this health information systems
topic. You must utilize at least two scholarly sources, including a
minimum of one scholarly source from the Ashford University Library.
Additionally, you must answer the following questions:
If you were in charge of addressing the issue within your selected
case, what would your leadership role entail with regard to the proposed
- Why is this topic important to health information systems quality?
- What is the issue or quality identified? What improvements are needed? What features are identified?
- How does this impact patient care?
- How does it impact management and staff (the organization as a whole)?
- What are the current conclusions drawn from the case?
Your chosen topic will be woven into the assignment for the subsequent
weeks of this course. Every week you will apply your newly acquired
skills and concepts to your chosen topic, which will be incorporated
into your Final Proposal. Your Final Proposal will be presented in your
chosen multimedia platform as your Final Presentation in Week Six.
