Imagine you have been selected to participate in a prestigious internship in a health care organization working for the chief information officer (CIO). Your internship consists of a series of projects you will complete throughout this course. The process of creating this presentation will provide you the opportunity to analyze security risks and privacy safeguards related to health care technology and consider the integration of a new software tool.

Preparing for the Assignment:
You will be asked to create a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation for the CIO. If you need any assistance using Microsoft PowerPoint, please reference the Create a Presentation in PowerPoint page on the Microsoft website.

Consider the following scenario:

In the first week of your internship, the CIO asks you to research electronic health records (EHRs). She says, "I must give a presentation at a staff meeting next week, and I'd like you to complete the research and create the slides and notes for me. The presentation must focus on EHRs, which our organization is considering implementing. Please be thorough with the speaker notes. Also, consider and/or research the constraints that are a major consideration for the staff when selecting new technology.”

Narrow down your research to 2 or 3 specific EHRs to research and present to the CIO for the staff meeting.

Assignment Directions:
Develop a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that includes the information the CIO requested in the scenario.

List major points in the slides. Include detailed explanations in the speaker notes that correlate to each of the following points:

The specific EHRs you’ve chosen to present
The effects of this technology on health care
The privacy risks, security safeguards, and strategies for evaluating the effectiveness of the EHRs
The HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules and the reasons those rules do or do not apply to this type of technology

Include videos, audio, photos, diagrams, or graphs as appropriate.

Cite at least 2 references to support your presentation.
