HCR 210 Week 4 Assignment Interview Data (Appendix B)

For more classes visit

www.indigohelp.com

Assignment: Interviews

Your instructor will post a roster in the Main forum that assigns students in groups of up to four for this assignment. Follow the instructions below carefully because the interview data must be inserted cumulatively, meaning that information will be misplaced if you are not careful to use the correct post. To receive full credit, follow directions carefully.

Resources: Appendix B; Interview Data Thread Roster and Interview Data Threads posted by your instructor

Locate the Interview Data Thread Roster to find the Interview Data Thread in which you are assigned for this assignment, in the Main forum. Your Interview Data Thread contains a chart with the same interview questions you investigated in Appendix B.

Open the most recent post in your assigned thread by checking the day and time. This is extremely important because:

  • If your classmates have already entered their interview data and you select the instructor’s original post, then you will not see what your threadmates have posted.
  • If you are unable to post all of your data at one sitting and decide to return to finish later, using the most recent post in the thread ensures that your and everyone else’s data are preserved each time the chart is accessed.

HCR 210 Week 5 CheckPoint Alphabetic Filing

For more classes visit

www.indigohelp.com

CheckPoint: Alphabetic Filing

Nothing comes before something is a common and helpful rule for filing that means a space precedes letters or numbers when sequencing filing units. Compare the names: Lou Ann and LouAnn. The space after Lou in Lou Ann precedes the A after Lou in LouAnn. Therefore, in a filing system that follows the nothing comes before something guideline, Lou Ann comprises two filing units whereas LouAnncomprises one filing unit. Lou Ann precedes LouAnn in the filing sequence—the space comes before the letter.

Resource: Ch. 6 of Essentials of Health Information Management: Principles and Practices

Use the nothing comes before something guideline as you put the following names in alphabetical order, showing the order of filing units (last name, first name, suffix.).

HCR 210 Week 9 Final Project Happy Health Medical Clinic

For more classes visit

www.indigohelp.com

Final Project: Records Management Presentation

You have been hired as the records manager for Happy Health Medical Clinic, a medium-sized, general practice about to start up business. Whereas this medical facility hopes to have everything computerized at some point in the future, that is not currently the case. Therefore basic patient information is located on the computer, but medical information is only found in paper files.

Your facility stores, circulates and updates patient records internally for six doctors, and traffics them up one floor to an X-ray department—in other words, you loan records, but you do not borrow them. Because the X-ray facility is in partnership with Happy Health, you send actual patient files up to X-ray, not copies, and it is important to get the files back.

Resource: Appendix A, Presentation Guide

Create a 12- to 15-slide PowerPoint® presentation outlining standard records management procedures for the employees who work for Happy Health Medical Clinic. Your presentation should include introduction and conclusion slides, as well as detailed speaker’s notes. The speaker’s notes must describe the bulleted items on the slide and provide rationale for policy decisions. Include one or more complete paragraph of speaker’s notes per slide; cite outside references used, if any, according to APA format.

Include the following information in your presentation:

o The importance of getting new information into a patient’s record as timely as possible

o Not duplicating medical records for the same person

o Being able to know at all times where a record is located as you write practical, how-to procedures to cover the following aspects of records management:

Indexes for administering health care information

Centralized or decentralized records management

Creation of new records—record format

Type of filing system:

  • Basic rules of the system
  • Examples to clarify names or numbers that might be confusing in that system

Temporary and permanent insertion of loose forms and care reports:

o Handling clinical data that a doctor needs to see

o Handling administrative data that a doctor does not need to see

Storage for patient files:

o Short-term (patient returns in 2 to 3 days)

o Permanent (patient is not due back soon but is currently under care)

o Archive (patient record has not been used for some time)

The physical circulation of records within your facility, and between your facility and X-ray:

o Routing and tracking records within areas of your department and out to X-ray

o Storing lab reports that come in when a patient’s file is at X-ray

o Retention schedule—destruction of records

o File security

o Legal and ethical responsibilities

Post your presentation as an attachment.
