Health Care Information Systems Terms

Define the following terms. Your definitions must be in your own words; do not copy them from the textbook.

After you define each term, describe in 40 to 60 words the health care setting in which each term would be applied. Include at least 2 research sources to support your position—one from the University Library and the other from the textbook. Cite your sources in the References section according to APA guidelines.

Each definition and description is supported with APA-formatted citations. This means that every box is required to have an APA-formatted citation.
