EHR Life Cycle

Question description


Create a slide presentation (12-15 slides; 20 minutes long) for a HIM team of a health care organization that is considering upgrading its existing EHR or implementing a new one. Address in the presentation: SDLC, migration plans, and best practices for successful EHR implementations.


EHR Go- Follow instructions from document download

Complete these specific EHR Go activities before beginning Assessment 2. You will be incorporating information from these activities into your assessment:

  • This activity will provide you with a chance to document new information in an EHR. As you complete the activity, think about the workflow process. How could it be improved?
    • EHR Go: Documenting a Patient Phone Call.
  • This activity will help you identify best practices for an EHR implementation. It will also introduce you to meaningful use. As you complete the activity, think about the workflow process. How could it be improved?
    • EHR Go: EHR Implementation.
    • Case Studies

    For Assessment 2, select a different case study than you selected for Assessment 1. This time, choose a case study that allows you to focus on various aspects of the system development life cycle (SDLC). Analyze your selected case study and then incorporate appropriate elements into your assessment. Remember: Choosing a case study that allows you to meet the assessment’s scoring guide criteria is your responsibility.
