As a health care manager, you have been asked to meet with the health information manager (HIM) and analyze the efficiency, security, and privacy of your current health records system. Your organization has very high standards and a culture of keeping up with current trends. After your analysis, you have been asked to provide a detailed report to the hospital’s chief operating officer (COO) detailing the following:

  • Examine      the emergence of technology and electronic health systems in health care since the passage of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability      Act (HIPAA).
  • Provide      an analysis of the current trends in health care record keeping and charting as they relate to advancements in technology.
  • Assess      ways in which contemporary patient records systems can support health care      operations including privacy, quality patient care delivery, insurance and      cost administration, and records access and retention.

Present your findings in an executive summary of 5–7 pages.
