Review websites of health informatics and other articles in the USU Academic databases.
Write a 5-8 page paper identifying strengths and weaknesses of informatics and the use of EHRs in healthcare, using a minimum of 5 peer-reviewed references, and no more than 20 references total (the textbook is an excellent reference and may be used as an extra reference, but it is not a peer-reviewed reference). Please contact me if you are unsure of what peer-reviewed literature means.
One of the pages must be a SWOT table (see below or Google). Strengths/Weaknesses/Opportunities/Threats or SWOT analyses are a great way for you to learn about a topic and an extremely useful tool that is actually used in both large and small organizations. Since the majority of you will be working in either private industry or for public entities (military, education, government, etc), this type of analysis will be useful to you in your job. Please list the characteristics of EHRs and informatics in the tables of your SWOT chart which will make it easier to describe in your writing.
Make sure you address the course topics and student learning outcomes covered in the first 4 modules. Your title and reference pages are not counted as part of the 5 – 8. Please follow your APA guidelines.
For APA Style Format:
WITH THE 6 PAGES THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE TITLE AND REFERENCE PAGE TOTAL WOULD BE 8
