Week 3 Discussion 1

 

"Agility and  Business Process Management (BPM)" Please respond to the following:

Assignment 1: Impact of Constitutional Amendments

Successful prosecution of a case depends on the legality and admissibility of the evidence gathered by the investigator. Statements obtained during interviews and interrogations are part of the information that helps prepare and present a case in court. Therefore, as an investigator, it is important for you to fully understand the tenets of the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the US Constitution. Evidence that adheres to the legal guidelines detailed in these constitutional amendments is admissible in court.

An investigator plays an important role in building a case for trial. With that role comes an important responsibility to ensure he or she has obtained a confession from the actual perpetrator of the crime. There are many reasons people confess to crimes they have not committed. Extensive investigative rigor must be exercised in order to make sure that cases containing false confessions are not prosecuted. On many occasions, there is pressure from the public, superiors, and the media to make an arrest in a case. An investigator who succumbs to these pressures is acting negligently.

Tasks:

For guidance on how to construct a good introduction paragraph, please review the Introduction Paragraph Guideline from the Ashford Writing Center.
  • Describe background information on how that problem developed or came into existence. Show why this is a societal problem, and provide perspectives from multiple disciplines or populations so that you fully represent what different parts of society have to say about this issue.

Be sure to consider multiple disciplines or populations so that your solution shows that multiple parts of society will benefit from this solution. Provide evidence from multiple scholarly sources as evidence that your proposed solution is viable.
  • Interpret statistical data from at least three, peer-reviewed scholarly sources. Do this by discussing the validity, reliability, and any biases; identifying the strengths and weaknesses of these sources; and pointing out limitations of current research and attempting to indicate areas for future research. You may even use visual representations such as graphs or charts to explain statistics from sources. Evaluate the ethical outcomes that result from your solution. Be sure to provide at least one positive ethical outcome as well as at least one negative ethical outcome that could result from your solution, and explain at least two ethical issues related to each of those outcomes. It’s important to consider all of society.

Then carefully review all issues identified by Grammarly and revise your work as needed.

In order for organizations to receive the incentives offered through the HITECH legislation, they must be able to demonstrate that they are using the technology in meaningful ways. The following criteria for meaningful use must be evident to qualify for EHR incentives (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, 2012). The technology must:

·         Improve quality, safety, and efficiency, and reduce health disparities

·         Engage patients and families

·         Improve care coordination

·         Improve population and public health

·         Ensure adequate privacy and security protections for personal health information

For this Discussion you consider the impact of the meaningful use criteria of the HITECH legislation on the adoption of health information technology.

To prepare:

·         Review the Learning Resources on the HITECH legislation and its primary goals.

·         Reflect on the positive and negative impact this legislation has had on your organization or one with which you are familiar.

·         Consider the incentives to encourage the use of EHRs. Focus on the definition of meaningful use and how it is measured.

·         Reflect on how the incentives and meaningful use impact the quality of patient care.

·         Find an article in the Walden Library dealing with one of the criteria to qualify for meaningful use and how it has been successfully met.

By Day 3

Post a description of how HITECH legislation has positively or negatively impacted your organization. Address how its related incentives influence the adoption of health information technology in health care and impact the quality of patient care. Provide a summary of the article you identified and explain how it demonstrates the ability of health information technology to meet the requirements of meaningful use.
