Develop an 8–12 slide PowerPoint presentation accompanied by an audio recording of the presentation that is a maximum 15 minutes. The presentation will focus on an explanation of Meaningful Use Guidelines and how the current HIM system could be optimized to ensure compliance and improved outcomes.

This assessment should be completed first.

Meaningful Use Guidelines play a very important role in guiding and directing the path of health information management (HIM) systems in many health care organizations. Along with Meaningful Use Guidelines, other regulations and quality measures drive how health care organizations choose, implement, and utilize their health information systems. In this assessment, the primary focus will be on meaningful use compliance, quality assurance, and the regulatory environment related to HIM.

Electronic health records (EHR) are playing an important role in improving quality, accessing important patient data, and improving communication amongst providers. They are a very important part of any HIM. However, new incentive programs such as Meaningful Use Guidelines require that health care organizations pay much closer attention to how patient data is gathered, shared, and collected. In this assessment, you will have the opportunity to work through an interactive scenario at a fictitious hospital and assess an EHR system.

You will be tasked with explaining Meaningful Use Guidelines as they relate to the system, making recommendations based on best practices for maintaining meaningful use, and other regulatory compliance.
