Health Information Data & Statistics Class

You are on a committee that wants to perform a study on diabetic patients. The IRB has given the committee permission to perform the study on human subjects. Prior to the study, you will need to get consent from the subjects that will be a part of the study.

In preparation for requesting consent from the study participants, complete the following:

  1. Create a consent form that outlines the information required by federal regulations.
  2. Fill out your consent form using fictitious information.
  3. Be sure that your form is free of spelling and grammar errors.

You have been hired to consult on access controls for a public health care provider, which provides medical services to a surrounding lower- to lower-middle-class community.

Information about clients of this health care provider include Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Protected Health Information (PHI), which is governed by the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulation.

Write a 1- to 2-page briefing paper addressed to the executives at the heath care provider that makes recommendations of at least one of the access control models, covering the following access control elements:

  • Physical access controls that should be in place
  • Logical access controls for protection of Data at Rest (DAR)
  • Logical access controls for protection of Data in Motion (DIM)
  • From the first e-Activity, analyze the process for developing an IT budget within a health care organization, and select one (1) aspect of the budgeting process which is the most difficult to execute. Next, suggest one (1) technique which you could use to overcome the difficulty that you selected. Provide a rationale to support your response.
  • From the second e-Activity, determine the key reasons why change management in health care IT is a hot-button issue. Next, among the eight (8) fundamental stages for the process of change described by Kotter, select the most significant stage, and suggest one (1) way to complete the stage in question. Provide a rationale to support your response.



To develop an IT budget, one must decide first what items need to be covered.  The list should include things such as payroll to run the IT, software, and hardware that is needed.  The budget must also define the cost of running the IT department for a health care organization. The budget itself may also change depending on adding or subtracting costs.


There are two major areas of concern when establishing a budget- the first of which is deciding how to continue being competitive with the new Medicare/Medicaid limitations.  The second challenge is the consumer aspect- if they factor into the budget. When forming the budget they have input from many areas- this can include the CEO, CFO and the finance department.  (Andrews, 2009)


The one aspect of the budget process is determining what the final budget will be in relation to the insurers.  The insurance companies have new laws put into place – which can change reimbursement very quickly.  This could change a budget rather quickly and they would need to rethink their strategies.


The reason why management in health care IT is such a hot button issue is due to the constantly changing environment. With new health care laws, new factors are always being taken into consideration.  Training always needs to be implement and revised with the new changes.


The eight fundamental steps for the process of change are increase urgency, build guiding teams, get the vision right, communication for buy-in, enable action, create short-term wins, don’t let up and make it stick.  Of these 8 steps the one that is the most significant is get the vision right.  When any organization needs to complete a goal they need to define that goal explicitly. There should generally not be any grey areas, and everyone should understand what needs to be accomplished.  To complete the stage in question, team leaders should get together and write down all aspects of the goal.  This should then be distributed to the staff/employees.


(Campbell, (2008)

For this submission, you will submit an outline of your research paper on a topic based upon compliance standards related to health information initiatives in medical law and ethics. This should include these specific components to ensure you are on the right track:

Case Study: Database Development 

Due Week 8 and worth 50 points

Read the following articles available in the ACM Digital Library:

Note: The ACM Digital Library is a Strayer Library database located in iCampus > Campus & Library > Learning Resource Center > Databases.

Dual Assessment of Data Quality in Customer Databases, Journal of Data and Information Quality (JDIQ), Volume 1 Issue 3, December 2009, Adir Even, G. Shankaranarayanan.

Write a two to three (2-3) page paper in which you:

  1. Recommend at least three (3) specific tasks that could be performed to improve the quality of datasets, using the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) methodology. Include a thorough description of each activity per each phase.
  2. Recommend the actions that should be performed in order to optimize record selections and to improve database performance from a quantitative data quality assessment.
  3. Suggest three (3) maintenance plans and three (3) activities that could be performed in order to improve data quality.
  4. From the software development methodologies described in the article titled, “Process-centered Review of Object Oriented Software Development Methodologies,” complete the following.
    1. Evaluate which method would be efficient for planning proactive concurrency control methods and lock granularities. Assess how your selected method can be used to minimize the database security risks that may occur within a multiuser environment. 
    2. Analyze how the verify method can be used to plan out system effectively and ensure that the number of transactions do not produce record-level locking while the database is in operation.
