You have been asked to create a proposal for improving data collection and analysis based on the current EHR at Independence Medical center and the recommendations you already made during your work. Despite being meaningful use certified, the leadership team feels that the organization needs to make better use of patient data to improve clinical outcomes, quality, and efficiency.
Your board of directors have asked you to prepare a full proposal and are relying on you to provide them with the most current and relevant information to help them decide on the next steps related to improvements and analysis.
For this assignment, write a 4–6-page, APA-formatted paper that summarizes proposed data services and their potential outcomes. Next, align the appropriate data with the organization’s strategic goals, identify current trends in data analytics, and provide recommendations for next steps based on your assessment of the organization’s health information needs. Feel free to draw on relevant aspects of the previous assignments in this course to help you complete this assignment.
