Question description

Week 3 - Discussion 2

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

Data Mining

Health care data comes in many different forms. The data is collected, organized, and analyzed to improve patient outcomes and health care processes. Data mining is a technique that researchers use to look for hidden patterns and relationships in large amounts of data. In this discussion you will evaluate a large data set complied by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.  This data set contains breeches of protected health information affecting 500 or more individuals. Use the data set to address the following:
  • How many records are in this file?
  • What is the name of the covered entity in your State that had the highest number of individuals affected (be sure to identify your state and the name of the institution)?
  • What type of breech occurred?
  • Describe the type of violation. 
  • How could this violation have been avoided?
  • How would you apply the data mining methods of clustering and association rule mining to this file?
Guided response: Your initial post should be a minimum of 200-250 words.
  • Utilize a minimum of two scholarly sources, excluding the textbook.
  • Sources should be cited in APA format, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
  • You must respond to at least two of your classmate’s posts by Day 7.
  • Your three required posts must be on three different days of the week.
  • In  reading the other initial posts, identify at least two similarities regarding the cause of the violation.  In your opinion, would the monetary penalty be significant to encourage policies to avoid a re-occurrence of the violation?  Why or why not?
