Electronic health record implementation

Electronic health record implementation

This assessment requires you address EHR implementation strategies for health organizations and describe how EHRs improve patient safety. 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:

• State the EHR mandate. Who started it? When?

• What are the goals of the mandate?

• 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!

• Describe "meaningful use".

Make sure you also include a clear, separate introduction and conclusion as a part of this assignment, as these are worth separate points on the grading rubric.

This assessment is aligned with the course objective 7 and the module objectives.
