Competency 732.3.4: Health Informatics and Research Process – The graduate applies the components of the research process for the purpose of developing an effective research project and to add to the professional body of knowledge in health informatics.

Health informatics professionals participate in teams working toward implementing new technologies in their healthcare organization. There is a need in the body of knowledge of health informatics and information management for research studies to support the effectiveness of utilizing health information technology (HIT), particularly as it impacts clinical areas. Assessing the impact of HIT on patient care, clinical staff behaviors, work flow, other processes within organizations, and outcomes related to all of these elements require objective evidence that results from research.
Think about the components of research as it would apply to a clinically based study in informatics. Consider how you could apply these concepts in the workplace to help grow the body of knowledge. For this task, you will select one health information technology area listed below:

• Clinical decision support
• Computerized physician order entry
• Computerized disease registries
• Consumer health information technology applications
• Electronic medical record systems * I chose this topic for the essay
• Electronic prescribing
• Health information technology in small and rural communities

A. Provide a literature review of five sources that discuss the implementation of one of the health information technologies listed in the introduction.

B. Present a proposal of how to assess the effectiveness of your selected technology by doing the following:
1. Discuss how you would perform a needs assessment for the project.
2. Discuss how you would formulate a research question.
3. Explain how you would develop a hypothesis.
4. Discuss the purpose of your research.
5. Discuss what research method would best fit the situation.
6. Explain what you would measure.
a. Explain your measurement methods.
7. Explain the benefit of one data collection tool or technique you would use.
8. Discuss how you would analyze the data you gather.
9. Discuss how you would draw conclusions.

C. When you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.

Note: When bulleted points are present in the task prompt, the level of detail or support called for in the rubric refers to those bulleted points.
Note: For definitions of terms commonly used in the rubric, see the Rubric Terms web link included in the Evaluation Procedures section.
Note: When using sources to support ideas and elements in a paper or project, the submission MUST include APA formatted in-text citations with a corresponding reference list for any direct quotes or paraphrasing. It is not necessary to list sources that were consulted if they have not been quoted or paraphrased in the text of the paper or project.

Note: No more than a combined total of 30% of a submission can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. For tips on using APA style, please refer to the APA Handout web link included in the General Instructions section.
