Ethical and Regulatory Considerations for Proposed EHR Technology Solution
Before you begin
this assignment, be sure you have read the “UMUC Family Clinic Case Study”, the
Case Study Stages 1-3, your required readings and feedback on your graded
work so far.
Purpose of this Assignment
gives you the opportunity to apply the concepts of this course to address the capabilities
and requirements for the certified EHR technology solution you have proposed
for the UMUC Family Clinic. This
assignment addresses the following course outcomes to enable you to:
the organizational environment in the health care industry to recognize how
technology solutions enable strategic outcomes.
technology solutions in the health care industry to improve the quality of
care, safety, and financial management decisions.
- Examine the
implications of ethical, legal, and regulatory policy issues on health
care information systems.
IT, Legal, Ethical and Regulatory
Considerations for Proposed EHR Technology Solution
your recommendation of a certified EHR system for the UMUC Family Clinic in your
Stage 3 project, the owner of the UMUC Family Clinic wants to be sure he has
considered everything before authorizing funding for the project. In
evaluating an IT proposal, there are several areas that need to be considered. The owner, Dr. Martin, has
asked you to prepare a table addressing the important aspects/considerations of
the project. These
considerations are listed in the table provided with this assignment.
Considerations include such areas as IT operational, architectural, project,
legal and ethical considerations.
Depending on the
specific EHR technology solution you proposed, some of the considerations would
be more important than others, and some will be implemented as part of the
system while others will require processes and procedures to be developed.
The responses that you enter into the table for each
consideration must be aligned to the one specific EHR solution you proposed and
must be appropriate to the UMUC Family Clinic.
Using the EHR technology solution
you proposed in Stage 3, you should briefly explain it and then copy the table
below and complete the remaining two columns. For each area of consideration, you should
provide a brief description, a minimum
of two sentences, and a brief explanation, a minimum of two sentences, to explain how that consideration
will be accommodated in your solution. DO
NOT copy the definitions from the textbook or other sources but put into
your own words to demonstrate your understanding of the concept as you provide
your descriptions. Descriptions and explanations
must provide enough information to convey your understanding of the
consideration. Use the Grading Rubric to be sure you have covered
everything. Submit your paper with both
parts 1 and 2 below via your Assignment Folder as a Microsoft Word document, or
a document that can be read using Microsoft Word.
Part 1: Briefly explain your proposed EHR technology
Identify what the solution is, what it is expected to do for the UMUC Family
Clinic, and what major hardware, software and communications components will be
used, summarizing the information you provided for Stage 3. You must provide enough information here so
that it is clear that your explanations in the table that follow apply to your
Part 2: Table of
Considerations. The Areas for
consideration are defined in the section “Course Resources” which follows the
table of considerations below. An
example for one entry is also provided below (you cannot use the area
identified in the example for your assignment).
Click on the upper left corner of the table to copy it into your paper. Then, provide a description (like a
definition, but in your own words) for each consideration and an explanation of
how it will be accommodated in your proposed EHR solution; the area may be addressed
by a specific capability provided with the system, by a
policy/process/procedure to be developed at the UMUC Family Clinic, or by a
combination of the two. Explain how the
consideration will specifically be accommodated. NOTE:
For full credit for all descriptions and explanations, the (minimum of)
two sentences must fully explain and justify your reasoning. Roll your mouse over the top left corner of
the table to select it and copy it into your assignment paper.
should also be a well-written introduction to this table to tie it to Part 1 of
the assignment; do not just insert a table with no explanation.
