In this assignment you will examine IT systems applied to health information management (HIM), potential vulnerabilities of these systems, and protocols to mitigate the risk of data and security breaches that are due to these vulnerabilities. IT systems are used for health information and data management in many areas, including patient electronic medical records (EMR), hospital operations management, and health care policy decisions. The System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a project management framework used to assess IT systems and associated organizational needs to identify and implement improvements to the system. You will write a paper to examine how the SDLC framework can be used to assess an IT system applied to HIM and evaluate risk mitigation protocols that reduce system risk and improve patient quality of care.
Write a 5–6 page paper in which you:
Choose a type of IT system applied to Health Information Management (HIM) for improved patient quality of care supported with an explanation for your selection.
Electronic Health Record Systems.
Clinical Decision Support Systems.
Radiology Information Systems.
Physician Order Entry Systems.
Outline organizational needs that define the requirements for the selected type of IT system applied to HIM.
Critique each of the five phases of the SDLC and how each addresses the organizational needs for the selected type of IT system applied to HIM.
Assess three possible data and security breach vulnerabilities in the selected type of IT system applied to HIM.
Evaluate three protocols to mitigate identified data and security breach vulnerabilities and improve the selected type of IT system applied to HIM.
Synthesize how the outcomes from the analysis of a selected IT system using the SDLC can improve patient quality of care.
Use at least three sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the library or review library guides.

Week 1 Research Paper
This week’s journal article was focused on the Complexity of Information Systems Research in the Digital World. Complexity is increasing as new technologies are emerging every day. This complexity impacts human experiences. Organizations are turning to digitally enabled solutions to assist with the emergence of digitalization. Please review the article and define the various technologies that are emerging as noted in the article. Note how these emerging technologies are impacting organizations and what organizations can to do to reduce the burden of digitalization.Be sure to use the UC Library for scholarly research. Google Scholar is also a great source for research. Please be sure that journal articles are peer-reviewed and are published within the last five years.The paper should meet the following requirements:
3-5 pages in length (not including title page or references)
APA guidelines must be followed. The paper must include a cover page, an introduction, a body with fully developed content, and a conclusion.
A minimum of five peer-reviewed journal articles.
The writing should be clear and concise. Headings should be used to transition thoughts. Don’t forget that the grade also includes the quality of writing.
By far, the type of writing that we encounter, both in secular and academic settings, fall in the category of being “informational/Observatory”. The intent of research writing is different – research writing is usually centered around advancing understanding of a topical problem/issue, and for a “community”. Research writings, therefore, leverage the work of prior research or it opens a discussion around a current topic. In either case, such writings follow a streamlined format that is familiar to researchers. This format, typically, contain components such as Title, Abstract, Introduction, Method, Results, Future Works, etc. The purpose of your assignment this week is for you to examine components of a research article and to identify guidelines for conducting critical analyses of published works. The knowledge gain here should be applied when completing your Week 14 research writing assignment. As you complete any writing assignment it is a good idea to proof read your work or use the University Writing Center to help with APA formatting; both will assist in minimizing grammatical errors and improve conducting research.
Find a research article – Mobile technology preferred; but any technology topic is acceptable. A research effort is usually placed in the context of a “business problem” that can be understood in terms of carefully designed research questions; this allows for maximum research, understanding, and participation around resolving the problem.
Write a four – six (4-6) page paper that evaluates the research article that you found – your paper should be: typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. See hand-outs provided on graduate and APA style research papers.
Evaluation criteria – notice what specific research components (Title, Abstract, Method, etc.) are found in the article
State the name of the article you found and that is being evaluated and who the author(s) is/are.
What is this article about – talk about its context (what is the topic; its purpose, and significance to what/whom)?
What components of a research format is included in this article?
How does this format contribute to the purpose of the writing?
Do the author(s) use this format in a way that furthers research – what other component(s), if any, might be helpful to that purpose?
Discuss the follow general guidelines in the course of evaluating:
What makes research writing different than ordinary information/observation writing?
Identify and explain major components of a research paper format.
Why use peer-reviewed journals in research?
Why are keywords used in the Abstract and during the Literature Review process?
Why use/apply APA basic citation style in these writing assignments?
Why is academic integrity important (see syllabus)?
Use at least five different quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia, Blogs, Info articles, and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources for research writing. Include a cover page containing: the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference pages do not count toward the page count. Review the Helpful Information provided related to critical thinking and also follow the hand-outs provided in this week’s folder.
Using the research literature you identified so far, explain the differences of TPM from a tactical as well as strategic perspective.
