  Assignment Instructions ASSIGNMENT: Educate Consumers on Patient Portal Usage CAHIIM Competency: Subdomain III.F. Consumer Informatics.  Educate consumers on patient-centered health information technologies

Instructions: After reading the material for the week, create an educational flyer for patients at a 10-physician outpatient clinic. The information should explain the clinic’s patient portal. Be sure to cover what it is, how to register for it, and the features of the portal. List the benefits of using the portal. The goal is to convince consumers of the value of using the portal and increase usage.

For some research, you might want to search for resources on a real patient portal vendor. If your health service provides this service, you can also use them as a research example to create your flyer.

The flyer can be composed using MS Word or PowerPoint. Submission

                 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).

Continue analyzing the situation that your case study’s healthcare organization faces. In this milestone, you will continue to evaluate the impact of the mission and vision of the healthcare organization’s strategic plan. You will also consider how the organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats affect the environmental factors that confront the healthcare organization.

Develop a SWOT analysis of the healthcare organization. Be sure to address the following: Briefly summarize your case study. To what extent do the organization’s policies address this issue? Be sure to justify your response. To what extent does the organization’s strategic planning around this issue align with its organizational mission and vision? Use evidence and examples to justify your reasoning. What do you feel are the organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) with regard to this issue? Be sure to substantiate your claims with evidence and specific examples. Based on the SWOT analysis you performed, what environmental factors are at play in terms of this issue and what is their impact on the delivery of care within the organization? In other words, identify any new policies or new trends that will affect your day-to-day operation.


Required Resources
Read/review the following resources for this activity: Textbook: Chapter 1 Lesson Minimum of 2 scholarly sources (1 for the etic view, and 1 for the emic view. Your source for the emic view should come from someone who writes with authority in the religion you chose. For example, if you chose Buddhism, you could use a quotation from His Holiness, Dalai Lama XIV). 

Make sure to read the lesson this week to learn about etic and emic perspectives so that you can appropriately apply them in this assignment. In an essay, apply the etic and emic perspectives to your own religion or a religion with which you have some familiarity. How would your tradition be described etically? Remember that this is an outsider’s perspective of what can be measured, studied, or observed. How would it be described emically? Remember that this is an insider’s perspective as seen by practitioners

Make sure that you are using at least one source for each approach and include citations from the assigned readings and additional scholarly sources.
