IFSM 305 Stage 3: Ethical, Legal and Regulatory Policy Issues IFSM 305 6382 Information Systems in Health Care Professor Daniel Gracie Ray Guiba Stage 3: Ethical, Legal and Regulatory Policy Issues 1
IFSM 305 Stage 3: Ethical, Legal and Regulatory Policy Issues Introduction: The organization which will be the focus of this Case Study is Midtown Family Clinic, which was established in the year 1990 by Dr. Harold Thompson. Dr. Thompson’s clinic has seen its fair share of success over the years, but there are significant changes which must take place for the clinic to meet today’s high demands. With Dr. Thompson’s leadership, the clinic is trying in its future by attempting to implement Electronic Health Records (EHR) and therefore streamline information. We believe that Dr. Thompson is making the right decision for his clinic and we will do whatever is necessary to make this a truly seamless and efficient transition. With Dr. Thompson’s leadership and our company’s vision, Midtown Family Clinic’s future is truly bright! I Organizational Analysis and Requirements A Introduction – This report will consist of several sections and will have detailed information all throughout. The ability to identify the strategic use of technology allows us to take a further look at how Midtown Family Clinic will utilize this technology to become a far more efficient organization. We will also take a much closer look at the overall components of these Information Systems that are involved as well. This will allow Midtown Family Clinic to gain a truly thorough understanding at how these systems function collectively. The final area will deal with the functional requirements of these respective systems and how they will make Midtown Family Clinic a fully modernized organization. B Strategic Use of Technology – 2
IFSM 305 Stage 3: Ethical, Legal and Regulatory Policy Issues To produce overall productivity and efficiency, the use of Electronic Health Records (EHR) can be extremely beneficial for Midtown Family Clinic. EHRs provide “accurate, up-to-date, and complete information about patients at the point of care” (Health IT.Gov, 2018). 1. The first strategic goal that Dr. Thompson envisions is seeing his clinic operate much more efficiently overall. EHR would provide the necessary tools needed to truly make this goal a reality. 2. The second strategic goals is to make a much larger financial profit overall. This financial profit would allow for renovations all throughout the clinic, and EHR would facilitate this overall process. 3. The third strategic goal involves the overall quality of care for Midtown Family Clinic’s customers. By implementing EHR, we would see a tremendous increase in the overall customer satisfaction and therefore make the clinic much better.
