Week 4 | Information Systems homework help

Topic:  Explain the data interchange standards required to enable the flow of the information.

As part of the Stage 2 assignment, you will identify Data Interchange Standards the Midtown Family Clinic EHR system will use to exchange information with external organizations.  For this discussion, we will explore several different Data Interchange Standards, or “Interoperability Standards” as the ONC defines them.  First to understand the top challenges in sharing data, read

http://www.pewtrusts.org/en/research-and-analysis/fact-sheets/2016/11/electronic-health-records-patient-matching-and-data-standardization-remain-top-challenges  This article highlights the need for data standardization.  Next, you will become familiar with the Interoperability Standards Advisory published and maintained by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC)  https://www.healthit.gov/isa/ The purpose of the Advisory, as stated on the website is shown below.

The Interoperability Standards Advisory (ISA) is meant to serve at least the following purposes:

  1. To provide the industry with a single, public list of the standards and implementation specifications that can best be used to address specific clinical health information interoperability needs. Currently, the ISA is focused on interoperability for sharing information between entities and not on intra-organizational uses.  
  2. To reflect the results of ongoing dialogue, debate, and consensus among industry stakeholders when more than one standard or implementation specification could be used to address a specific interoperability need, discussion will take place through the ISA public comments process. The web-version of the ISA will improve upon existing processes, making comments more transparent, and allowing for threaded discussions to promote further dialogue.
  3. To document known limitations, preconditions, and dependencies as well as provide suggestions for security best practices in the form of security patterns for referenced standards and implementation specifications when they are used to address a specific clinical health IT interoperability need.”

GROUP 4:  From the many different standards listed in the Advisory, choose one that has not yet been posted and:

  1. Put the Title of the standard in the Subject line for your posting.
  2. Conduct some additional research and explain:
    1. What the standard is
    2. What the standard is used for
    3. Why it is important

GROUPS 1, 2 and 3:  For at least two postings,

  1. Conduct your own research on the standard
  2. Critically evaluate and respond to the explanation provided for:
    1. What the standard is
    2. What the standard is used for
    3. Why it is important
  3. Provide at least one additional comment on one of the aspects above (what the standard is, what it is used for, or why it is important)

Your responses should be complete and thorough, and not simply “I agree.”

Do you have an example of an organization that you have seen (or researched) having gone the organizational life cycle?

Any of you who have been in the south and seen old brick warehouses painted with faded out “Uneeda Biscuit” signs have seen an example!

How have you seen attitudes towards time differ among cultures (either organizational or societal)
