The purpose of this assignment is to identify the components of HMIS and how they interface with one another.
An
effective digital health ecosystem relies on a broad spectrum of
technical, clinical, and administrative stakeholders to gather and
analyze patient data and then use that information to improve the
quality of care offered. Within the health care environment, information
systems and technology (IS/IT) are used to ensure patient privacy and
security, inform optimal decision making, and assist in operational
efficiency, which further enhances the services that clinicians,
hospitals, technology developers, researchers, and policymakers are able
to provide.
The textbook outlines five major components of health care management information systems (HMIS):
Content and Data –
The data component is at the center of all heath IS/IT. Clinical,
technical, and administrative stakeholders rely on these data to make
the most well-informed decisions for enriching the delivery of their
health care services.
Infrastructure –
Hardware, software, user interfaces, and other digital applications can
be used to accelerate communication and seamlessly share information
across networks.
Data Analytics – Once data
have been gathered, they can be analyzed and manipulated to inform what
has happened in the past and why, as well as to assist in predicting
what will happen and how those situations can or should be handled.
Network Compatibility and Communications
– The interoperability of networks and information systems used across
the health care services industry is essential as data are exchanged
across multiple platforms, even within a single organization. Challenges
arise in ensuring that the systems work well with each other and that
they are able to communicate complex health processes and treatments, as
well as specialized medical terminology.
Administration and Management
– The role of this interfacing position is to assemble and coordinate
the other four components of the health IS/IT ecosystem, performing the
tasks necessary to put the goals of the health care organization into
action to serve both the users and consumers.
Choose the
component that most interests you and write a 500-750-word response
about how you envision yourself performing in that role. Include the
following points in your response:
Describe the health care
setting where you see yourself working and detail the roles and
responsibilities of your position. How would your role incorporate
health IS/IT?
Within your chosen health care organization, how would your position within the health IS/IT be integrated into the larger HMIS?
Describe
one hypothetical challenge in your selected area of focus that could be
overcome using health information technology. How would this
technological innovation or solution improve the effectiveness of
current HMIS systems and processes?
