Assess the components of e-health delivery systems.


Part I: Focus on the Healthcare databases with a focus on electronic health records in your reading and resources. Write a 1 page paper to assess the usefulness of databases in electronic health systems and the limitations. How do these relate to the world of informatics?

Part 2: Create a small health organization database in ACCESS or use Excel if you need to (it will look similar it just won’t have the functions of a real database). For instance, create a database of patients, their diagnosis, reason for their visit, and the cost for the visit. Create at least 10 pretend patients for the database.

Then list 3 ways the database query tool could be used. For example: Dr. Jones asks you for a list of all patients he saw last year with the diagnosis of diabetes.
