Assignment consists of 2 questions, 1 page per question answer please.
Question 1: Patient information collected and stored by a health care facility is actually the property of the subject of the data (the patient). When a patient wants to share information among different (perhaps competing) health care facilities, how will it be handled? Imagine this scenario: As a manager of a local hospital, you are approached by a patient who is experiencing a high-risk pregnancy. The patient asks for access by a specialist at a different hospital owned by a competitor. Write a post in which you outline your response to this request, including how you weigh the potential risks and benefits involved. Include also your perceptions about how data sharing between competitors may change with the use and security of electronic systems. Use APA formatting guidelines to properly cite any references used.
Question 2: Imagine that you work at a health care organization that is discussing a major information sharing proposal with other major providers and payers in the region: the development of a regional health network allowing clinicians broad access to patient data with patient permission, of course. Write a post in which you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of such a regional network. Include in the discussion some of the information security issues that exist with this new way of sharing data. What evidence and/or research can you provide to support your noted security issues? Use APA formatting guidelines to properly cite the references used.
