The advent of personal health records has presented both advantages and disadvantages. A health system in Pennsylvania has incorporated an approach to increase utilization of this technology by providing personal portals to affiliated patients and incorporating the individual record with the electronic record in the hospital, which allowed the patients to view test results after review by the physician.
Your quality improvement circle has been assigned the task of creating a presentation regarding system security as it applies to the ability of the general public access to a combined personal and the electronic medical record housed by the hospital. The slide count refers to context only. Title and references are separate. Notes are required on each slide to expand on the explanation.
The presentation should include discussion on the following components: •Overview of the personal health record •Benefits/advantages of having a personal health record •How to prevent and mitigate misuse of access •System security update procedures
Each group member will submit his or her slide material as a sentence outline. All written support for your PowerPoint slides must be submitted in this area. Your answer should be supported with a minimum of 2 reliable resources. For more information on creating PowerPoint Presentations, please visit the PowerPoint Lab.
