Case Study, Stage 2: Data Flow Among Health Care Systems
Before you begin this assignment, be sure you have read the “UMUC Family Clinic Case Study”, the course readings assigned to date, and feedback on your graded Stage 1 assignment.
Purpose of this Assignment
This assignment specifically aIDresses the following course outcomes to enable you to:
UMUC Family Clinic Medical Practice
In your Stage 1 assignment, you created process models for the patient visit process in the UMUC Family Clinic. For the Stage 3 assignment, you will identify an Electronic Health Records System that will aIDress the process problems at the Clinic. The EHR system you identify will initially be implemented at the UMUC Family Clinic, but will soon need to be able to connect and communicate with external systems. As part of analyzing the requirements for the new system, one step is to consider how that system will enable the UMUC Family Clinic to exchange electronic data with other health organizations – such as other providers, pharmacies, insurance companies, and even patients themselves. The case study mentions several of these. For this assignment you will select two types of external organizations and describe what kind of data would flow between the UMUC Family Clinic and those organizations and how that can be done effectively.
For academic writing, the writer is expected to write in the third person. In third person, the writer avoids the pronouns I, we, my, our, you and your. The third person is used to make the writing more objective by taking the individual, the “self,” out of the writing. This method is very helpful for academic writing, a form in which facts, not opinion, drive the tone of the text. Writing in the third person allows the writer to come across as unbiased and thus more informed.
Your paper will be evaluated on whether or not you correctly incorporated the course concepts from the textbook and readings, and have aIDressed all parts of the assignment, using the rubric below.
