Data can be qualitative or quantitative. Qualitative data are helpful to generate a hypothesis and gather information if little is known about an expected association. Focus groups, key informant interviews, and case studies are types of qualitative data collection methods used to identify common themes from which to build a hypothesis. Quantitative data collection and analysis are used to test a hypothesis and make comparisons to determine the direction and strength of a potential association. The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is cross-sectional panel survey used to collect quantitative data on adult behaviors and risk factors. It is one of the largest U.S. health data collection efforts. The data can be used to analyze associations on a state or country level.
For this assignment, use the “BRFSS Web-Enabled Analysis Tool” and the “Calculation Odds Ratio” worksheet. Refer to the “Odds Ratio Interpretation” document for assistance as needed.

You are the HIM director of a local hospital. Part of your responsibilities include ensuring that the master patient index is kept up to date and does not contain duplicate patient records. You already have some internal processes in place to minimize the potential for duplicates but would like to implement a new biometric technology that will further support this initiative. The new technology must be approved by the board of directors. While you are meeting with the board, you decide to also pitch the idea of your facility participating in the nationwide E-Health Exchange.
Prepare a PowerPoint presentation that you will use in your meeting with the board of directors to address the following:
MPI Data Integrity
Define data integrity and discuss why it is important as it relates to the MPI.
Discuss two policies/strategies your facility could implement (or has implemented) to achieve data integrity within the MPI.
Provide an overview of a patient-facing biometric technology (i.e. palm vein readers, fingerprint recognition, iris scanner, facial recognition etc.) that you would like to see implemented, including a vendor option.
Justify how implementation of this new biometric technology would improve data integrity within the MPI.
Identify a possible repercussion of not implementing this biometric technology.
E-Health Exchange Participation
Describe what the E-Health Exchange is and its purpose.
Describe the role of HL7 in the exchange of health information and why it is important to have a standard.
Describe the potential impact participating in the exchange may have on the patients of your facility.
You must submit a slide presentation of at least 10 slides (PowerPoint, Keynote, Google Slides, etc) titled with your name. Example: JVance.ppt
This should include a title slide, at least one slide per topic above, and a references slide
Robust presenter notes (minimum 100 words) for each slide (excluding the title slide & references slide) that thoroughly expand upon the content of the slide and include appropriately formatted in-text citations.

Part 1. PRACTICE EXERCISE 3: DYNAMIC COMPLEXITY
Objective To practice identifying dynamic complexity in a patient care experience.
1. Read the case study.
2. Review the system characteristics that contribute to dynamic complexity:
– Change – Trade-offs – History dependency – Tight coupling – Nonlinearity
For further explanation on these system characteristics, please refer to J.D. Sterman, 2006, “Learning from Evidence in a Complex World,” American Journal of Public Health 96 (3): 505–14.
3. Explain how these system characteristics are expressed in the case study.
This case is adapted from D. L. Kelly and S. L. Pestotnik’s 1998 unpublished manuscript “Using Causal Loop Diagrams to Facilitate Double Loop Learning in the Healthcare Delivery Setting.” Mrs. B was a 66-year-old widow living on a fixed income. She had been diagnosed with high blood pressure and osteoporosis. Her private doctor knew her well. When he selected the medication with which to treat her high blood pressure, he took into account her age, the fact that she had osteoporosis, and other issues. He chose a drug that had proven beneficial for patients such as Mrs. B and had minimum side effects. Mrs. B did well on the medication for ten years. Her insurance covered the cost of her medication, except for a small out-of-pocket copayment. The last time Mrs. B went to her local pharmacy to refill her prescription, the pharmacist informed her that her insurance company had contracted with a pharmacy benefits management (PBM) company. (The role of a PBM company is to perform a variety of cost-cutting services for health insurance plans. One of these services is to decide which drugs an insurance company will pay for; the PBM company’s preferred-product list is known as a formulary.) If Mrs. B wanted to continue to take the same medication, it would cost her five times her usual copayment. She was quite disturbed because she could not afford this price increase and did not fully understand her insurance company’s new policy. The pharmacist offered to call Mrs. B’s doctor, explain the situation, and ask him whether he would change her prescription to the PBM-preferred brand. When the physician was contacted, he was not aware of the PBM company’s action and was not completely familiar with the preferred product. The pharmacist discussed Mrs. B’s predicament with the physician and described the financial consequences of continuing to receive her original prescription. After this discussion with the pharmacist, the physician concluded that his only option was to approve the switch, which he did. Mrs. B began taking the new brand of high blood pressure medicine. One week after starting on the new drug, she developed a persistent cough that aggravated her osteoporosis and caused her rib pain. When the cough and pain continued for another week, Mrs. B began to take over-the-counter medicines for the pain. She unknowingly opened herself to a reaction between her blood pressure medication and the pain medication: orthostatic hypotension (lightheadedness when rising from a lying to an upright position). One morning on her way to the bathroom, she fainted, fell, and broke her hip. She was admitted to the hospital for surgery, where she developed a urinary tract infection. The infection spread to her repaired hip, which resulted in a bloodstream infection that eventually led to her death.

Overview: The focus of this module was on quality care. For your final project, you will research a gap in access to quality, equity, or efficiency of healthcare,
(including existing initiatives in place to address the gap and economic and regulatory factors that are currently in place to address the gap). To begin this
project, you must first conduct some background research into the gap and the impacted population.
Prompt: After reviewing the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric document, select a healthcare delivery process gap and population affected from the list below.
This will be the base of your final project, the healthcare delivery systems research paper.
• Option One: A gap in quality related to care coordination for individuals with chronic illnesses
• Option Two: A gap in equity related to mental health access for veterans
• Option Three: A gap in efficiency related to rising cost of pharmaceuticals for the aging population
In your paper, you will explain why the chosen topic is a gap in healthcare and analyze the specific population impacted by the issue. Specifically, you should
address the following:
• Describe a specific gap in the delivery of healthcare. Include the specific population affected by the gap.
• Briefly describe the history of this gap in access to healthcare. Has this been an issue historically, or is it a modern issue?
• Explain the impact that the socioeconomic background of the population has on their access to healthcare.
• Describe how the healthcare delivered to the population is affected by the gap in access.
• Predict any potential implications if this gap in access is not addressed.
Guidelines for Submission: Your paper must be submitted as a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font,
one-inch margins, and at least three sources cited in APA format.

The practice of health care and wellness providers at all levels brings you into contact with people from a variety of faiths. This calls for knowledge and understanding of a diversity of faiths.
The purpose of this paper is to complete a comparative analysis of two faiths towards providing health care and wellness: the first being the Christian perspective, and the second a faith perspective that is unfamiliar to you.
Provide a comparative analysis of the two different faiths, reinforcing major themes with insights gained from your research.
Answer the following basic worldview questions for Christianity and the faith you selected.
What is prime reality?
What is the nature of the world around us?
What is a human being?
What happens to a person at death?
Why is it possible to know anything at all?
How do we know what is right or wrong?
What is the meaning of human history?
Analyze the overall focus of the two different faith perspectives and their importance to the followers of that faith.
What are critical common components of the other faith and Christian practices (such as prayer and worship) that are part of the healing process? Explain.
For the person receiving care, explain the connection between each faith’s spiritual perspectives in the overall experience of healing.
Describe your own spiritual perspective on healing.
How will your understanding of the diversity of faith expressions inform your philosophy of health care and wellness?
Support your position with five to six references. Those references are to include the following:
Primary source for each faith expression.
