I have been asked by my health care organization to provide a detailed report on the benefits of implementing a new health information technology system to comply with the current mandates. Develop a 6 page report detailing with how information technology systems can be used to analyze organizational data for a health care organization. This should include types of systems where data may be retrieved and how IT and various applications can be used to aggregate and analyze the data to understand issues, identify root causes, and document progress related to implemented changes, patient progress, quality assurance, and compliance. Make sure to address the following questions:

•With plenty of data stored on computer systems, data should not be a problem, but access to the data and sharing of information may have implications under federal regulations. What precautions might you suggest when handling health care data? Be sure to apply current trends in health care from proven sources and models.

•Consider the support capabilities of a typical health care operation and where employees may access data of various types related to patient needs. What might be accessed, and what controls may be needed to protect patient data?

•From a departmental perspective, consider the role of the health information manager (HIM). What qualifications and experience would be needed for your specific health care setting? What functions and role would the HIM have in regard to this organization's medical records?

•As technology advances, what compliance issues and regulations do health care managers at this organization need to be on top of?
Consider the impact of falling behind the technology curve not only in terms of productivity but regulatory compliance. What role do the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Acts have on the implementation and use of technology and electronic health records (EHRs) at this setting?

Make sure to address the following questions:

In reference to how technology systems are currently used in healthcare organization s for analyzing and organizing data, the most important variables of any EHR system is the use of data aggregation. This system is predicated upon the use of information technology that is a basis for data aggregation, but it is also necessitated by the requirement that the healthcare organization ensure that it establishes an organizational culture that uses everyday healthcare delivery as the learning tool that generates the necessary data and evidenced based learning to teach healthcare providers how to effectively provide care for patients while protecting their data. There are different types of systems that allow for data aggregation to take place including single delivery organizations that use comprehensive electronic health records (EHRs), third party payers that are able to combine claims data from the many different healthcare providers, and systems such as the Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA). This system is capable of integrating and aggregating data associated with VA patient records and administrative data with over 150 healthcare organizations that allow for these organizations to provide over 800 clinics with real-time data access.

Other systems that are capable of aggregating data while also providing the analytic capacity to enable healthcare organizations the ability to organize and retrieve data in manageable and productive ...
