Healthy Care Community (HCC) is upgrading its HIT system. You are participating in the project. 

Review the Healthy Care Community Profile to become familiar with the scope of the Healthy Care Community HIT Upgrade project and the HCC business and technical needs. 

This week you will complete the first step of the project: documenting the current state of the HCC HIT system and creating a recommended architecture for the project team to review. 

Part 1 – Current and Recommended Architecture Diagrams

Create a Microsoft Visio diagram of the current HCC HIT architecture and a second diagram of your proposed architecture that meets HCC’s business and performance needs and technical requirements. 

Consider the Digital Bedside Monitoring System Performance Issue described in the Healthy Care Community Profile when preparing your proposed architecture. Examine the performance issue to find the source of the problem, consider how you would resolve it, and include the resolution in your recommended design. 

Include the following in your diagrams, as applicable:

  • Five HIT components
  • Current and proposed hardware
  • Current and proposed software applications, along with notes regarding key interactions
  • Data flow map
  • Sufficient detail to support the creation of security, installation, and maintenance plans

Part 2 – Design Explanation

Create a 3- to 4-page explanation in Microsoft Word for the project team that describes your design recommendation and how your recommendation will maximize performance and optimization. 

Include the following in your explanation:

  • A summary of your architecture design change recommendations
  • A description of how your recommendations will improve overall network performance and the performance of individual components
  • An explanation of how your recommendations will resolve the Digital Bedside Monitoring Performance Issue, including:
  • What a Medical Record Number (MRN) is and its role in accurately and uniquely identifying patients
  • What caused the performance error
  • A summary of your recommendation with supporting reasoning

Note: The Healthy Care Community-related individual assignments in Weeks One, Two, Three, Four, and Five build upon one another. 

Compress your recommendation document and Visio files of your system diagrams into a ZIP folder. 

Submit your ZIP folder.

Discussion: Review of Current Healthcare Issues

If you were to ask 10 people what they believe to be the most significant issue facing healthcare today, you might get 10 different answers. Escalating costs? Regulation? Technology disruption?

These and many other topics are worthy of discussion. Not surprisingly, much has been said in the research, within the profession, and in the news about these topics. Whether they are issues of finance, quality, workload, or outcomes, there is no shortage of changes to be addressed.

In this Discussion, you examine a national healthcare issue and consider how that issue may impact your work setting. You also analyze how your organization has responded to this issue.

To Prepare:

· Review the Resources and select one current national healthcare issue/stressor to focus on.

· Reflect on the current national healthcare issue/stressor you selected and think about how this issue/stressor may be addressed in your work setting.

ASSIGNMENT

Post a description of the national healthcare issue/stressor you selected for analysis, and explain how the healthcare issue/stressor may impact your work setting. Then, describe how your health system work setting has responded to the healthcare issue/stressor, including a description of what changes may have been implemented. Be specific and provide examples.

                 Population Health Determinants for Heart Disease

             Heart disease is a prevalent population health issue for many parts of our nation and is affected by all five of the population health determinants.  One of these determinants is access to healthcare which included prevention strategies, treatments, and management of disease (Kindig, Asada, & Booske, 2008).  Medical management of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and Diabetes would decrease the risk of heart disease (HealthyPeople.gov, 2014c).  The individual behavior determinant is behaviors within a person’s control such as diet, exercise, and smoking habits (Kindig et al., 2008).  All three of these habits can affect heart health (HealthyPeople.gov, 2014c).  The social environment determinant includes socioeconomic factors (Kindig et al., 2008).  Access to education is imperative for heart health, not only for knowledge of healthy habits but also the need to make a livable wage as described by Laureate Education (2012).  A livable wage is necessary for affordable health care and affordable healthy foods (HealthyPeople.gov, 2014c).  The physical environment determinant affects the heart health of those exposed to long-term poor air quality (HealthyPeople.gov, 2014b).  Lastly, the genetics determinant effects heart health.  Genetics are inherited characteristics such as race and family history (Kindig et al., 2008). HealthyPeople.gov (2014c) identified African Americans at highest risk for heart disease.  Also, those with a family history of heart disease are at high risk themselves (HealthyPeople.gov, 2014c).  When assessing the data, each of the five determinants affects heart disease.

Impactful Determinants

             When assessing the population health determinants, a couple of them are significantly impactful.  The one most impactful is individual behavior, as making lifestyle changes can dramatically decrease the risk of heart disease.  In America, nearly 82 percent of adults and adolescents do not get enough exercise, and about 34 percent of adults and 16 percent of adolescents are obese (HealthyPeople.gov, 2014d).  Between 2000 and 2004 smoking was attributed to ischemic heart disease leading to 126,005 deaths (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2008).  Making choices of healthy behaviors such as exercise, diet, and not smoking would reduce the risk of heart disease.  

            Another impactful determinant is access to health care.  Managing diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia can reduce the risk of damage done to the heart and increase years of quality life. Objectives by HealthyPeople.gov (2014c) include increased screening for those who have cardiac risk factors.  Screening can help early diagnoses and treatments leading to better management of cardiac risk factors.

Epidemiologic Data

            Epidemiologic data support the significance of heart disease by assessing the statistics of death related to heart disease.  For example, in 1999, heart disease accounted for about 195 deaths per 100,000 according to HealthyPeople.gov (2014a).  However, in 2016, about 94 deaths per 100,000 were cardiac-related showing a decreased trend (HealthyPeople.gov, 2014a).  Because of epidemiologic data, objectives such as increasing the number of adults who get their blood pressures measured, decreasing hypertension in adults, and increasing aspirin intervention in adults with cardiac risk factors, could lead to policy initiatives (HealthyPeople.gov, 2014c).  Epidemiologic data represented a significant issue, led to objectives and policies, and then, allowed for evaluation of the objectives and policies (Laureate Education, 2012).
