EHR and Healthcare Informatics
Unit 2 Assignment Directions
As the Office Manager for a large physician practice, you are charged with leading the implementation of a new Electronic Health Record (EHR) system for the entire practice. You want to create a presentation that illustrates how health information exchange works. To prepare for your presentation, explain the functionality of current archival and retrieval systems used by physician practices. Research how your state’s Regional Health Extension Center (RHEC) and Regional Health Information Exchange can help support the implementation process.
Create a 10–15 slide PowerPoint® presentation to persuade the physicians that it is beneficial to utilize the RHEC during the EHR implementation process and include the below information:
• Functionality of archival and retrieval systems used by physician practices.
• Privacy, security, and confidentiality policies and procedures for internal and external use and exchange of health information.
• Technology for data collection, storage, analysis, and reporting of information.
• Regional Health Extension Center (RHEC) and Regional Health Information Exchange.
