Students are encouraged to create portfolios and begin to “manage” their careers. When you began a college education you took the first step. You now need to begin to reflect on the next goal, then medium, and long-term goals. I did not complete my final degree until well into my 50’s. And that is fine, I loved my health care career. I was eager to care for patients and did not leave direct patient care for many decades. I did know the time would come to do so however, and began to earn the college degrees I would need at the proper time. This is what is meant by managing your career. This is an entry level program. It is designed to assist you in getting your “foot in the door” where you can learn valuable clinical skills. A common and important degree is the Bachelor of Health Information Management (BS-HIM). This is a reflective assignment. After you have earned your Associate Degree, what would you like to do next?

Explore your next step in Career Management.

Include the following aspects in the assignment:

Ø  Access AHIMA: What is Health Information

Ø  Explore in detail the job outlook, roles and responsibilities of the HIM professionals.

Ø  Expand on your interest in pursuing this profession or if you are not interested, please discuss the reasons.

Ø  Implement some characteristics that makes a good leader in the field of Health Information and explain which ones you specifically have.

Ø  Demonstrate the importance of HIM professionals respecting patient privacy, accuracy, and quality care

Ø  This is a non-formal 1-2 page reflection; you may use “I”. As always, proper sentences, grammar, and spelling are required.



The Health Information Technology (HIT) for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009 increased electronic medical record (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR) adoption across the country, making cybersecurity a growing concern for health care organizations. There are regular news reports on healthcare facilities that have been breached.

Analyze the report: Hackers target health data; 82% of hospital tech experts reported ‘significant security incident’ in last year.

Provide a personal action plan to protect against security lapses on your watch.

Include the following aspects in the assignment:

Ø  Summarize the seriousness of the data breaches

Ø  Include your definition of ” bad security hygiene”

Ø  Describe how you will ” create a culture of security awareness”

Ø  Develop a personal action plan which you will follow to assure technology security


Professional Development Assignments:

  • Public health efforts and those of private medicine complement each other and together serve the spectrum of health service needs of American society. Why, then, has their relationship been so contentious?
  • The Institute of Medicine report of 1999 cites two major studies that establish medical errors as one of the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Should the federal government take the necessary steps to monitor the status of this high-risk situation, as it does with other epidemics, or should the government continue to trust the providers of health care to deal forthrightly with the problem?
  • Analyze why legislative attempts to address only one of the trio of rising costs, lack of universal access, or variable quality of health care only worsens the remaining two.

Please submit one APA formatted paper between 1000 – 1500 words, not including the title and reference page. The assignment should have a minimum of two (2) scholarly sources, in addition to the textbook.

Assignment Expectations

Length: 1000-1500 words

References: Use the appropriate APA style in-text citations and references for all resources utilized to answer the questions. Include at least two (2) scholarly sources to support your claims.

For many years, hospital accreditation bodies assumed that if the structural criteria were met, that is, that the physical plant, the qualifications of the staff, and the necessary equipment were in place, the quality of the services would automatically be acceptable. Subsequently, accreditation groups decided that they had also better look at the medical records to see how the services were being provided. They assumed that, if the necessary structure was in place, and the required services were delivered as prescribed, the quality of care would be acceptable. Now, these same accrediting groups find it necessary to look at the outcomes of care as well.

Describe “structure, process, and outcome” in the assessment of the quality of medical care, and provide examples of each dimension.

How are the three dimensions related?

Can these relationships be trusted to assure the quality of care in the complex, high-tech world of modern medicine? If not, why
