MODULE 5: ASSESSMENT 15: WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT – ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORD IMPLEMENTATION

and read instructions

For this assignment, you will consider your own facility’s implementation of its electronic health record, if you have one. If not, you should contact a large health system in your area and talk to their IT department, or you may select one of your clinical sites and contact that IT department. Answer the following questions:
1. State the EHR mandate. Who started it? When? 2. What are the goals of the mandate? 3. How does the Affordable Care Act tie in to the mandate? 4. Describe your facility’s plan. If you have already implemented a system, what steps were taken? Make sure you use the HealthIT.gov website—be clear! 5. Describe “meaningful use”. 6. Explain the possible threats to patient confidentiality and the ramifications of HIPAA violations.
This paper should be 3-5 pages long and should be written using APA formatting and citations.
Please continue to use the principles of setting up an APA paper from week 1 and 2 including introduction and conclusion.
The headings for this paper was as follows:
Description of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) ? State the EHR mandate. Who started it? When? ? What are the goals and objectives of the mandate? (See lecture) ? How does the Affordable Care Act tie in to the mandate and Obama Administration tie into the mandate?

EHRs and Patient Confidentiality ? Definition of HIPAA laws by describing possible threats to patient confidentiality ? What is being done by your facility to prevent HIPAA violations?
