ASSIGNMENT: Your specific assignment for this module is to select a health care organization for your project and have it approved by your professor. You may consider any health care organization as long as you have enough access to the organization and/or level of understanding of that organization necessary to complete the assignment.
Note: You will not be asked to reveal any proprietary or confidential information in your reports. In addition, there are several health care organizations that do a fantastic job of publicly disclosing their health information infrastructure in an online format such as: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/the_johns_hopkins_hospital/ . If you don’t have direct access to a health care organization, you can use one of the health care organizations that provides its health information infrastructure online.
Accordingly, your selected health care organization can be:
Provide a 7- to 10-slide (not including title slide and reference slides) PowerPoint presentation on the health care organization you have selected. Provide a brief overview of the health care organization. Next, discuss the types of health care information systems the organization uses (i.e., EHR, clinical decision support, patient portals, etc.). Finally, close with describing how these systems impact patient outcomes, quality and/or safety.
