Post a written response in the discussion forum to EACH threaded discussion topic:
1. As discussed in the lesson and assigned reading for this week, EHRs provide both benefits and drawbacks. Create a “Pros” versus “Cons” table and include at least 3 items for each list. Next to each item, provide a brief rationale as to why you selected to include it on the respective list.
2. Refer to the Stage 3 objectives for Meaningful Use located in this week’s lesson under the heading Meaningful Use and the HITECH Act. Select two objectives to research further. In your own words, provide a brief discussion as to how the objective may impact your role as an APN in clinical practice.
My two are: Protect electronic protected health information and Generate and transmit prescriptions electronically
For each threaded discussion per week, the student will select no less than TWO scholarly sources to support the initial discussion post.
Current outside scholarly sources must have been published within the last 5 years
