PrivacyAs discussed, a HIS protects privacy by having passwords and keys that must be put in.Some systems will not allow staff to log in without a swipe card. There are restrictions on whocan see certain information in the chart. Penalties for violating the HIPPA regulations can varyfrom a category 1 violation $100 on average up to $50,000 for a category 4 violation.Advanced Information Management and the Application of Technology6
[ CITATION Qua15 \l 1033 ] Hospitals are highly aware of these penalties so when selecting asystem should take care to select one that has the maximum-security features.B4.How adopting a system will improve efficiency and productivityA newly implemented HIS achieves efficiency at the organizational level by streamliningthe processes which allows providers to see more patients in the same amount of time as before.Standardizing documentation with fill in the blank with dropdown tabs forms included on HISinterfaces. The HIS steer nurses and physicians to the same questions and assessments for allpatients. Less waste is produced by nearly eliminating the need for any paper charting. Anotherbenefit to electronic charting is that the same information can be stored with much less spaceused. HIS increase productivity because all staff can do their jobs better and in less time. Thisalso removes the stress of all the paperwork that was handwritten before. Capital resources arelowered because there is no longer a need for off site storage spaces to hold all the paper charts.Human resources are reduced because less staff is needed to keep up with the charting,admissions, and discharges.C.Four stake-holdersFour essential stakeholders would be the IT (information technology) personnel, thephysician or primary care provider, the unit manager, and the staff nurse. The IT staff member is an expert in the interfaces and the electronic functioning of thesoftware that the other staff use bedside every day. This staff member would have to be involvedAdvanced Information Management and the Application of Technology7
in the preplanning stage, implementation stage, and beyond. They would need to be available fortroubleshooting and to help with the training that would be needed too. A good idea would be tohave them very involved in choosing which HIS to select for the hospital because over tie they rethe one who will be intimately involved with the system to help keep it functioning smoothly.They contribute to the success by keeping everything running like a well-oiled machine.The physician is an essential stakeholder because they will use the system daily whenperforming their daily rounds. Their expertise is in providing patient care, giving and enteringorders, and retrieving patient history to make decision about what to do next with the patient.
