HIM 4640 Capella University EHR Implementation and Maintenance Presentation

Assessment 2 Instructions: EHR Life Cycle

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.Take a minute to think about this scenario:The hospital where you work spent more than $1 million dollars designing and developing an EHR system. However, hospital leadership decided not to train employees on the new system. Why? They were operating under the assumption that in our technology-oriented society, everyone knows how to use computers. Right? The first day the system went live, everyone relied on paper records. No one documented anything in the brand new, $1 million EHR system.What went wrong?HIM professionals can help their organizations find solutions to critical, expensive problems like these. Knowledge of the systems development life cycle (SDLC) and skills in using this cycle can help to answer these questions. Remember that the EHR is a system. And like other information systems, it follows the six stages of the SDLC. These are:In particular, HIM professionals’ focus on the SDLC’s design, implementation, and maintenance phases and how those phases interact can add tremendous value to a successful EHR implementation. For example, in the design phase, HIM professionals skilled in using different tools within the EHR for workflow and process mapping can help to ensure that the business processes are organized in a way that produces the organization’s desired results each and every time.Likewise, knowledgeable HIM professionals can offer value in the SDLC’s implementation phase by citing credible, authoritative evidence to show their organizations that successful EHR implementations expend resources on end user training. The people using the system need to learn how to use the system so it can help them do their jobs more effectively and efficiently. After all, whether or not an EHR implementation is successful depends on whether the people using the system want to make it work and know how to make it work.In addition, HIM professionals can help their organizations understand the importance of regular, ongoing maintenance of its EHR system. Just as regular, ongoing maintenance of a house can prevent costly repairs and a depreciation of value, the same holds true for an EHR system.In this assessment, you will have the opportunity to educate fellow HIM team members about the SDLC and its application to EHR implementation as Vila Health considers an important strategic initiative. Should it keep and upgrade its existing EHR system, EHR Go? Or would it be better served by replacing the existing system with a new one?

DEMONSTRATION OF PROFICIENCY

 

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria:

PREPARATION

 

EHR Go

 

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

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.

Independent Research

 

If you are less familiar with EHRs, you may wish to conduct additional independent research. The suggested resources provide a good starting point. You may also wish to consult the Health Care Administration Undergraduate Library Research Guide for research tips and help in identifying current, scholarly and/or authoritative sources.

Audio Recording of Your Presentation

 

To prepare for the audio recording of your presentation:Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact Disability Services to request accommodations.

INSTRUCTIONS

 

In this assessment you will continue on in your role as Vila Health’s EHR implementation consultant. Your boss, the HIM director, wants HIM department staff members to be informed about best practices for EHR implementation because Vila Health is considering whether to implement a new system or upgrade its existing one, EHR Go. The HIM director has asked you to prepare a 12–15 slide deck and present it at the next HIM department meeting. You will have a maximum of 30 minutes to deliver your presentation (20 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for Q&A;). Specifically, your boss wants you to cover SDLC, migration plans, and best practices for a successful EHR implementation. Your director also wants you to weave into your presentation examples from a case study, from the independent research you have conducted, and from your personal experiences.Your boss has approved the outline below. Use the notes portion of your presentation to build out what you will say during the presentation. As a reminder, be sure your slides cover highlights. Your notes section will spell out what you will say.

Welcome (1 slide)

 

Best Practices (1 slide)

 

System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Stages (2 slides)

 

Successful EHR System Implementation Requirements (2 to 3 slides)

 

Migration Plans for EHR Implementation (2 slides)

 

Workflow and Needs Assessment for EHR Implementation (2 slides)

 

Closing (1 slide)

 

References (1 slide)

 

Once you have completed your slides and prepared your presentation notes, your next step will be to practice giving your presentation multiple times and then record it.
