Electronic Health Records Discussion



  1. Describe the essential      components and attributes of an electronic health record (EHR) and their      application in the clinical setting.
  2. Evaluate the benefits of an EHR      related to cost, access, quality, safety, and effectiveness.
  3. Examine how clinical provider      order entry (CPOE and e-prescribing have impacted delivery and      documentation of care.
  4. Explore significant      considerations and challenges related to EHR adoption and integration.
  5. Examine the standards and      regulations that impact the usage of EHRs.


Discussion 1

Adopting or integrating a new EHR or enhancements to an EHR can be a complex undertaking for a health care organization. What are some primary considerations for adoption and integration? What major concerns related to costs, quality, access, safety, or effectiveness would you prioritize in making decisions about adoption or integration?

Discussion 2

What are the primary advantages and disadvantages of the EHR and its relation to CPOEs and e-prescribing? How do these impact clinical documentation and patient care?


Imagine leadership within your organization has asked you to research a new piece of legislation, mandate, or policy to determine what impact it may have on the EHR and clinical documentation in your practice environment. You have been asked to provide education on the legislation and ramifications of accompanying changes. Create a PowerPoint presentation on the selected legislation or policy in your state that will affect the clinical environment, data collection, and the EHR. You may select legislation that was recently passed or a pending piece of legislation. Review “Frequently Asked Questions: 2018 Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act” as an example of a piece of legislation for the state of Arizona.

After you have chosen the legislation and performed the necessary research, create an 8-10-slide educational PowerPoint addressing the following:

  1. Summarize the key      components and purpose of the selected legislation or policy.
  2. Explain the impact      the legislation/policy will likely have on the EHR, clinical documentation,      and the clinical environment.
  3. Identify the      primary challenges of implementing the changes and recommend solutions for      overcoming those challenges for your organizations.
