implement it on future assignments. What to consider in the outline: 1. What is the topic? 2. Why is
it significant? 3. What background material is relevant? 4. What is our thesis or purpose statement?
5. What organizational plan will best support our purpose? 6. How much space is estimated per
section? Topic: Advances in Healthcare Information Technology 12 point – times new roman I am
including the references also with a paragraph from the article that I’m using so that you can get
the fill of what the outline topic is about. Full Sentence Outline: The full sentence outline format is
essentially the same as the alphanumeric outline. The main difference. as the title suggests. is that
full sentences are required at each level of the outline. This outline is most often used when
preparing a traditional essay. Thesis Statement: Question(s)/lssues Being Addressed: l. Man-made
pollution is the primary cause of global warming. A. Greenhouse gas emissions are widely idenhfied
by the scientific community to be harmful (Smith, 2014). 1. The burning of coal and fossil fuels are
the primary releasers of hazardous greenhouse gases.

Barton (2014) discusses the challenges with larger IT programs in healthcareand how rigorous it can be when there are certain goals that need to be met. The difficulties of large healthcare IT programs that have strict deadlines and strain the capacity of the organization to assimilate the change are exacerbated by the inefficiencies of not having the required processes in place prior to project initiation. These programs endure even more chaotic results than more typically sized IT projects Barton (2014). The larger the project, the more issues the IT department will have, in making sure that there are a minimum of inefficiencies with the program.

Cantor (2009) talks about the continuous use of IT in the healthcare profession and how it will help the patient to have great success in their health care. Increasing use of IT in healthcare can also provide important benefits from the patient perspective. While healthcare providers will mainly have direct contact with data in EHRs, patients may also take advantage of interoperable personal health records (PHRs) as anchors for linking their genetic and clinical data. PHRs also allow patients to have more individual control over their medical data, and can also serve as an important, institution-independent repository that all of a patient’s clinicians can access. In addition to storing medical data, PHRs can serve as important vehicles for helping patients deal with complex information (Cantor 2009). With patient health records, they can play an active role in their health care decisions and needs.

In this article, Custudio, Gard & Graham (2009) explains the effectiveness electronic health records has overall in the caliber of care for patients. Electronic health records have a positive impact on quality of care, patient safety, and system delivery. Clinical decision support within the EHR system prompts clinicians on evidence-based recommended diagnostic and screening tests and immunizations for both primary prevention and chronic disease management. This fosters equitable treatment for diverse populations by eliminating any potential racial or ethnic bias from the health care provider that might affect clinical judgment Custodio, Gard & Graham (2009). Furthermore, electronic health records have a great effect on system delivery for physicians.

This article is very important to our research paper because the authors, D’Amore, Sittig, & Ness (2012) show how innovative electronic health records (EHRs) have become in the 21st century and in the healthcare profession. The adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) has focused on enhancing the delivery of individual care, but the application of digital medical data to widespread population health analysis is critically lacking. Population analysis empowers public health agencies, disease registries, medical researchers, and practicing clinicians to monitor care quality and improve disease management beyond face-to-face patient encounters D’Amore, Sittig, & Ness (2012). The adoption of electronic health records is becoming a necessity in the healthcare profession all over the United States.

In this article, Wah (2014) explains the importance of patient privacy and protecting their private information. Now, some of the things that we talk about in terms of privacy and security are along the lines of protecting the patient’s private information. For example, I am an obstetrician gynecologist, so many women are very concerned that their reproductive history may get out. If they have had pregnancy termination or sexually transmitted diseases, it can be potentially very embarrassing and damaging if this information gets out. In other specialties, for example if a patient is on a psychiatric medication or has had counseling for psychiatric diseases, it is often very concerning for patients if that information were released.So, patients are very concerned about breaches. If you ask them about digitalization of healthcare or Health IT, their number one concern is that their health information will show up on the internet (Wah 2014). Protecting the patient’s private information is very serious and can have very serious repercussions if violated in any way.
