    1)How does your organization address security needs? Consider the following areas:
    o Computer system
    o Physical security
    o Operational security
    o Communications security
    o Information security

    o User Access
    2) It has been suggested that the key to physician adoption is physician engagement. How can health care organizations engage clinical leadership in developing electronic health records?
    3) Identify three smart devices. Explain their function in communicating, evaluating, and charting patient information. How might these devices improve a patient's health?
    4) How do telemedicine technologies change the provider relationship?
    5) How can simulators be used in transitioning to electronic health records?
    6) How can systems thinking, as defined by Senge's The Fifth Discipline, contribute to the challenge of adoption?

    Note all answer should be at least half a page long with references

    In the rural hospital where this hypothetical scenario is based, the computer system is lacking in competent information technology security because of a lack of qualified IT staff, which compromises computer system security. The old systems in many rural hospitals make it problematic for upgrades to new technology that is more secure because of the expensive price tag associated with these upgrades. Therefore, physical security and operational security is compromised because of different devices that operate on different interfaces.

    Because many rural hospitals and their employees rely on smart cellphones and tablet devices for communication, security is also compromised as these devices are less secure than technology used at larger hospitals. Rural hospitals lack the funding for the proper infrastructure, which also compromises patient information, and makes it difficult for users to access the internet as the infrastructure is slow and unreliable. The bandwidth and speeds for the internet are slow in many rural hospitals, which limits access to the wireless network and also compromises patient information as not enough information is provided to the necessary stakeholders.

    2) It has been suggested that the key to physician adoption is physician engagement. How health care organizations can engage clinical leadership in developing electronic health records?

    Engaging physicians is mandatory as many still don't believe in the efficacy of electronic health records for their practices, as this results in uncertainty, more work according to physicians and disrupts the flow of the organization. Therefore, in order for the adoption of EHRs to occur, physicians have to ...

    Solution Summary

    Healthcare information systems are examined. How simulators can be used in transitioning to electronic health records are determined.
