The purpose of this assignment is to reflect on the IT professional interview and draw conclusions about the complexities of integrating information systems in a health care setting.
The Information Systems Integration Project has three components: a group interview, an individual response, and a PowerPoint presentation. The results of this assignment and Part One will be used in Part Three of the project.
Upon completing the group interview component in Part One, consider the IT professional’s responses and what they conveyed about the relationship between information technology and health care.
Drawing on the answers from the interview, in conjunction with your own research, compose a 500-750-word paper that addresses the following:
Describe the role of the IT professional you interviewed within the health care organization where the IT professional works.
Summarize the main talking points from the interview and explain how HMIS is integrated within the IT professional’s facility.
Explain how management variables, such as cost, productivity, and quality care at an organization, are affected by the integration of an information system. Incorporate specific examples from the interview where possible.
Explain where and how HMIS services factor into an organization’s strategic plan.
