Week 11 Assignment
I know everyone is excited to complete the course in the next few days.
****Important to Note: The due date for Week 11 assignment is Friday at midnight.
This week you will focus on the creation of a Policy/Regulation Fact Sheet.
In this Assignment, you will study a recent nursing informatics-related healthcare policy, and you will share the relevant details via a fact sheet designed to inform and educate.
The Fact Sheet can be in single spacing. Keep to just 1 page. (But make sure your name is on the assignment).
During your literature review, look at some fact sheets. Google search (for example the CDC has hundreds) will help also. This is not a complicated assignment so don’t over think it. ALWAYS put your name and date on all assignments.
- Review the Resources on healthcare policy and regulatory/legislative topics related to health and nursing informatics.
- Consider the role of the nurse informaticist in relation to a healthcare organizations compliance with various policies and regulations, such as the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).
- Research and select one health or nursing informatics policy (within the past 5 years) or regulation for further study.
The Assignment: (1 page)
Create a 1-page fact sheet that your healthcare organization could hypothetically use to explain the health or nursing informatics policy/regulation you selected. Your fact sheet should address the following:
- Briefly and generally explain the policy or regulation you selected.
- Address the impact of the policy or regulation you selected on system implementation.
- Address the impact of the policy or regulation you selected on clinical care, patient/provider interactions, and workflow.
- Highlight organizational policies and procedures that are/will be in place at your healthcare organization to address the policy or regulation you selected. Be specific.
