assigned to research and discuss the following:
- Discuss the financial and health benefits that can be realized by implementing an electronic health record (EHR).
- Research and explain the estimated cost of implementing an EHR and the estimated cost of managing an EHR over the long run.
- Discuss current security concerns surrounding HIT and the EHR.
1 piece of federal legislation (e.g., HIPAA, HITECH Act, Meaningful
Use, etc.), and discuss the requirements that legislation imposes on the
use of HIT and the EHR.
