Foundations of Health Care Informatics

November 19, 2009

Overall I thought this Module 2 of Healthcare Informatics certificate program was a good next step from Module 1. And that it got a little more in depth with the topics presented. I am glad that I have continued in this program and look forward to Module 3.

Clinical decision support systems

November 19, 2009

We discuss clinical decision support systems on a daily basis where I work. We discuss the pro’s and con’s of it. Some of the older providers do not like the idea because they do not want someone or something telling them how to practice medicine. I think it should be mandatory for all providers in our organization to take a class on clinical decision support and how it can benefit them. We work in a very litigious environment and in part most of our lawsuits stem from providers not being thorough enough. A good clinical decision support system would prompt them to ask certain questions or order certain test.

Support Systems

In this assignment within my Health Care Informatics online certificate program, I learned about administrative decision support systems. My organization is in the process of purchasing a new EHR and there are so many factors that play a role in this. We need an EHR that does more than track patients visits. This assignment touched on the different types of decision support systems and what each system could be used for.

Blum’s Model

November 19, 2009

I am glad that this Module 2 of Healthcare Informatics took up where Module 1 left off. There was a whole chapter (3) on databases in the first assignment. That was one of the topics that I wrote about in Module 1 that i wanted to learn more about. I also learned about the Blum model. No one has ever mentioned that model before.
