Make sure to reference the citations using the APA writing style for the essay. The cover page and reference page do not count towards the minimum word amount.

Write an essay addressing the following prompts:

  1. Electronic health records (EHRs) are easier to read than the paper charts of the past, but many complain that healthcare providers are focusing too much on the computer screen instead of the patient.
  • Is this due to a lack of skill or training, poor computer system design, or just the nature of computer charting?
  • Is patient care suffering from the implementation of EHRs?
  • Charting in an EHR consist of clicking boxes, do you feel this provides enough detail about the patient, condition, and events if there was a lawsuit?
  1. Hebda, Hunter, and Czar (2019) identify three types of data that are currently being tracked by organizations (p. 46).
  • Identify and explain another type of data, specific to your homecare nursing practice, that is being tracked by an organization.
  • Why do you feel this data is important to track?
  • Identify and discuss the organization that is tracking the data.
  • Are there any ethical concerns with an outside organization tracking this data, explain, and give examples?
  1. In this week’s discussion post, you identified and explain the topic selected for the project.
  • Provide a description of your selected topic based on input from the discussion forum. What is your project, why is it relevant to this class, and why is it important to you?
  • Identify an informatics/healthcare theory from pages 29-30 of the textbook that aligns with the project and explain why.

Advancement in technology has allowed electronic healthcare record-keeping to enable
useful collection and safeguarding of the patient's data. Electronic health record (EHR) is the data
created and kept using electronic tools such as computers. As a result of new technology, it has
made it easier for healthcare practitioners to electronically collect and maintain patient information
for better patient health outcomes. In the past decade, patient data were collected using manual
processes, a tiresome process for health practitioners.

Therefore, following innovations in

technology, healthcare organizations have implemented computers to keep the patient data.
Moreover, digital growth has also increased patient data security since only the authorized
healthcare professional having the security credentials will access the patient health records.
Besides the positive impacts of the electronic health record implementation, negative patterns are
developing in the healthcare sector using EHR. The negative patterns include the healthcare
providers spending more time on their computers than expected. Also, computers have been
drawing individual concentration to their responsibility, mainly when one engages on social media
channels and games. This paper shall address the use of electronic health records in health
organizations and the critical data tracked by them.
Healthcare providers are focusing on computer screens.
The character in healthcare workers concentrating more on the computer can be due to
computer charting and low computer designs. Since the laptop is designed to access different
items, the internet enables the healthcare provider to access social media, thus spending more time
on computer screens. However, in the computer design, the device can be restricted only to allow
the health care providers to access specific files such as Microsoft Office that enables writing and

filling of information. This will disable the computer from accessing social media platforms,
including Twitter or Facebook, and games. Health organizations that allow the health workers to
access all the available sites provided in the computer face challenges in getting the expert to
design their computers. However, the health organization would expect that the health workers are
civilized and allow them to use all the available computer applications.
On the other hand, various applications such as WhatsApp and Facebook reduce individual
concentration toward the provided responsibility. This is because the applications allow one to be
connected to the virtual environment leaving the real world and commitment. Similarly, this affects
healthcare providers as the computers enable them to connect to the virtual world easily. The free
mode to access all the computer applications has increased healthcare time focusing on the
computer. Hence, t...
