Clinical and Administrative Information Systems
Health care organizations utilize a diversity of information systems to support and enhance the delivery of care to their patients. Although the specific types of information systems used vary by health care setting, the organizational activities supported by these systems fall broadly into two areas of functionality—clinical and administrative.
To prepare for this Application Assignment, review this week’s Learning Resources. Then, select two types of clinical systems and two types of administrative systems of particular interest to you.
To complete this Application Assignment, write a 2- to 3-page paper in which you identify the health care setting (or context) in which each of the four specific systems you selected is used, describe the functional purpose of each system, and explain the potential benefits of each system for the health care organization.
Your written assignments must follow APA guidelines. Be sure to support your work with specific citations from this week’s Resources and additional scholarly sources as appropriate.
