Classifying and Representing Information in Health Care

Health care information can be classified and represented in a variety of ways and used within a diversity of contexts and settings. Data that is useable in one area of health care may not be useable in another area if it is not classified and represented in a way that is appropriate for that particular setting or that specific context.

To prepare for this Discussion, review the information offered by the presenters in this week’s course video on the distinctions between ad hoc versus standard representations of health information and between formal versus informal standards. Then, select one of these aspects of the classification and representation of health information (i.e., ad hoc representation, standard representation, informal standard, or formal standard) and, using the Walden Library databases as well as the Internet, conduct a targeted literature review to identify specific examples of it from health care.

By Day 4, post a comprehensive response to the following:

In the first line of your posting, identify which aspect of the classification and representation of health information (ad hoc representation, standard representation, informal standard, or formal standard) you selected to research.
Describe two specific examples of this aspect of the classification and representation of health information that you were able to identify through your literature review. In what health care context(s) or setting(s) is it used? Why is it appropriate for use in these particular context(s) or setting(s)? Explain your reasoning.
Would any of the other aspects of the classification and representation of health information also be appropriate for use within these health care context(s) or setting(s)? If so, why? If not, why not? Explain your reasoning.
