The discussion assignment for this week includes a review of the Key Assignment Outline completed by one of your classmates, as well as a substantial response to at least one other student.
Primary Task Response: Your first task is to post your own Key Assignment Outline to the discussion area so that other students are able to review your plan. Attach your document to the main discussion post, and include any notes you feel are appropriate. The purpose of this assignment is to help improve the quality of the Key Assignment Draft you will complete next week. Use the information presented below to create Key Assignment draft (you are not required to research part 1 or part 2 task; instead complete a table of content to outline the topics/headings that will get covered in the key assignment draft)
Part 1 Task for Key Assignment
Now that you have identified the data sets, discussed the electronic health record (EHR) and computerized physician order entry (CPOE), and identified patient demographic information data elements that are necessary for the new system, you will begin your needs analysis in preparation for selecting the vendor for the EHR. Update the Key Assignment with feedback from the peer review Discussion Board and faculty grading feedback.
Once your document is updated, add the following to your paper of 3-4 pages not including the title page, abstract page, and reference page:
â€¢ Identify the appropriate department heads that need to be part of the EHR implementation committee.
â€¢ The computers in the facility are outdated. Identify what will need to be done to prepare for the EHR implementation.
Part 2 Task for Key Assignment
Add the following information to your Key Assignment from the Unit 4 Individual Project to create your final draft:
â€¢ Choose 3 departments in your facility, and describe the specific needs that they have requested that will help enhance their work after implementation of the electronic health record (EHR).
â€¢ Discuss what training will need to be done prior to implementation.
â€¢ What type of vendor support and vendor maintenance will you need after implementation? How long will this be needed?
â€¢ Write 5 questions that your facility can ask about the product the vendor will present to you as you start your vendor interviews and selection process.
