Paper #1

 

This will be the first of 2 assignments this semester. You will find 2 files to download. 

1) zipIncomeAssignment.csv is the dataset file you will use for the asignment.

2) ITS836 Assignment 1.docx is the actual assignment instructions.

Note: When you read through the docx file, you’ll notice that some words are in bold. That was intentional. Consider those words very strong hints to the solution. 

This assignment is worth 20 points (20% of your final grade.) You will use R to perform basic data analysis on the supplied dataset. Please refer to the discussion forum for additional information. 

Please note that questions #8 and #9 will likely be quite challenging. I want you to discuss challenges and strategies in the discussion forum. Don’t just give up the answers to other students if you figure out how to solve the problems, but try to offer insights and answer other students’ questions when you can. I’ll be in on the discussion as well. The point is for each of you to learn about R. The best way to get there is to encounter some challenges and collaborate to resolve them. I look at questions #8 and #9 as opportunities to learn more about R, not ways for me to count off points. I’m interested in the outcome. 

Of course, you will need a functioning R implementation to do this exercise. See the discussion forum for more details if you need to acquire R.

Milstone One Project

Milestone One Guidelines and Rubric
Overview: Imagine you have been contracted to consult on the recent developments at the Featherfall Medical Center. Featherfall has been struggling of late; it

has had a series of problems that have prompted your hiring. It has faced the following issues: Featherfall has recently violated several government regulations regarding the current state of its technology and how it is being used. The technology system is vastly out of date, and staff are not always using the technology that is in place or they are using the technology inappropriately. These problems have lost the institution lots of money for not meeting government regulations and have caused operational and ethical problems from inefficient and ineffective use of technology. The staff at Featherfall are not well-trained on the use of technology and do not communicate appropriately about technology use. The roles that pertinent to your consult are the health information management team, the clinical staff (doctors, nurses, etc.), and administrative staff. The health information management team uses proper coding practices, and the current technology system serves them well, despite its age. However, other roles in the hospital have had issues with the system. Clinical staff, for instance, have had record-keeping issues both due to lack of training on the system and the system itself being out of date. Administrative staff within the organization have taken issue with the lack of communication about the technology and its use between the various roles. When the current technology system was chosen many years ago, the needs of these various roles were not considered.

In this milestone, you will submit a discussion of the history of healthcare information management/informatics and the current landscape in terms of technology. This milestone will set the stage for your project.

Specifically the following critical elements must be addressed:

I. Preparation for Consult: In this section of your final project, you will prepare for your consultation on the organization’s technology choice. To prepare,you will analyze the field of health information management for determining standard technologies and guidelines related to technology use in order to inform your technology selection. Analyze key historical events in the field of health informatics for how technology has been used that could inform the management of health information. Be sure to support your response with appropriate examples. Determine guidelines for technology use in the field of health information management that Featherfall could implement. Be sure to support your response with research. Determine the standard technologies currently used in the field of health information management. Be sure to support your response with research. For example, what record-keeping technologies are typically used in the field? Develop an overview of how the pertinent roles described at Featherfall would interact with technology. Describe the process you would use to evaluate new health information technology systems. Be sure that your process will evaluate new
systems based on how they meet the needs of the organization and how they are compliant with health regulations and laws.

Topic: WHY CHOOSING FOOD IS IMPORTANT ? 

 Assignment Three: Taking a Stand

Find a controversy that arouses your interest. It could be an issue currently in the news or it might be a long-lasting one. Your purpose isn’t to try to solve a large social or moral problem, but just to make clear where you stand and why. First state your view and then your reasons for holding it. Sum it up in the end, convincing the reader why he or she might see it as you do. Remember to see the conflict in both a local and a global context if possible.

Purpose: Using your skills of analysis, critique, observation, description, and persuasion, write a compelling argument for the stand you have taken.

Audience: Readers who are aware of the issue, but who may not have taken their own stand as of yet. People that you want to move to action, or to think in a new way.

Persona: One who really believes in the issue she/he is writing about. Someone who has something at stake in the issue. Someone who is respectful of others’ opinions. A sympathetic & generous writer.

You might want to use an editorial as a jumping off place. Read an editorial you disagree with and let this essay be a response to the editorial.

6-8 Pages long
3 Scholarly Sources—No Encyclopedias, No Dictionaries, No Guides, No Web pages (unless scholarly)…books, academic journals. No CREDO Reference, No Facts on File, NO CQ Researcher!!! Talk with your reference librarian to get help with what is a scholarly source.

Unit VI Research Report Outline

APA 6th Edition format

Unit VI Research Report Outline The next milestone for your research report is to prepare an outline.

This is the part of the project when all of the details start coming together, and you have an opportunity to organize the data you have collected.

Plus, this outline is the first step of actually writing your research report. This outline asks you to include topic sentences for each major section of your research report. A topic-sentence outline is very similar to a traditional outline. The only difference is the inclusion of complete sentences rather than key terms.

The topic sentences should serve the same purpose as a topic sentence in a paragraph—describes what the entire paragraph is about. You may have already prepared a few of the items in this assignment.

Now, you can gather the major sections of your research report and begin building it from a big picture perspective.

 

Once the big picture is in place, the only thing left to do is insert the supporting details. Include at least the following in your outline:  A topic sentence for the introduction  A topic sentence for the purpose of the report  A hypothesis  Five topic sentences for the body of the report  A topic sentence for your recommendations/conclusions Use your own words and apply APA style, if necessary. Information about accessing the Blackboard Grading Rubric for this assignment is provided below.

Unit 2 Assignment 1 Change Management Key Assessment LO#5 Health Information Management Systems

 

Assignment Purpose:

To interpret concepts of change management theories, techniques and leadership

Assignment Description

Scenario: You are the HIM Director for a multi-facility healthcare system. You have just been informed, that the facility has decided to change their abstracting and encoding system to a newer system which will include registry and quality data reporting capabilities. This will be a major change for the current coders and abstractors, as the roles will now be combined instead of separate role. It may mean that some current employees may no longer be qualified for their current position. It may also mean that the workload for the current employees may increase. You think that I may be a good idea to provide some change management training to your managers and supervisors to help employees through this transition.

Step One: Create an outline of the training that you will provide on change management. Include change management theories, change management techniques, reactions to change, and how to effect change. (NOTE: Be sure this is in an outline form. Don’t write a paper)

Step Two: Create a brochure, handout, or flyer that you can pass out during the training session that your managers and supervisors can take with them to refer to later. Include the high-points of your training.

Step Three: Develop a paragraph summary (about 300 words) explaining how effective change management can ensure efficient workflow and appropriate outcomes.

Step Four: Submit your outline, handout, and summary for grading.
