Write a 2-3 page paper analyzing the need for specific policies and guidelines related to a chosen EHR tool or system. Write a one-page policy description for the ERH too. Write one page of guidelines describing usage for the tool.

Introduction

The three assessments in this course ask you to look at a single electronic health records initiative from three different perspectives. The assessments are best done in the order that they are presented. In this first assessment you will establish the policy and guidelines for the EHR initiative you are implementing.

Instructions

Choose a specific situation in a practice setting related to the use of an EHR tool or system. Write a brief paper analyzing a need for specific policies and guidelines related to the tool or system and place the actual policy and guidelines as appendices to the paper. There are three parts to this assessment.

Part 1: Establish policy and guidelines for the use of an EHR system or data collection tool to support and apply evidence-based practice. Create a brief 2–3 page paper to address how the policy reflects the following analysis:

  • An evaluation of the function of the tool related to evidence-based practice.
  • An analysis of the work setting using evidence-based practice.
  • An analysis of how the tool/system supports the strategic plan for evidence-based information use in the organization or practice setting.
  • An analysis of how the tool/system contributes to creating efficient workflows and safe practice within the context of evidence-based practice.
  • An assessment of how the tool/system contributes to interprofessional care and patient satisfaction.

Part 2: Create a one page policy with references placed as an appendix to the paper.

Part 3: Create one page with guidelines on how to use the policy in practice placed as an appendix after the policy.
