WEEK 7 REPORT INSTRUCTIONS
Please complete the assignment on the other Week 7 report doc. This one is just to give detailed instructions.
Chapter 9 is devoted to data privacy and IT safety in healthcare. For the Report assignment we’ll apply these concepts to current HIT events. You’ll read articles that discuss current IT privacy and safety challenges that healthcare organizations are facing, and then you’ll apply the information to a hypothetical situation.
Your hypothetical professional background for this Report: Imagine you have been working at a large hospital for 5 years in a management role. You just got promoted to an upper level management role. Your new role includes overseeing the Radiology/Imaging, and Cardiology Departments. Senior Management has asked you to assess the current policies and procedures around information technology privacy and safety. What you found really concerned you—it was extremely underdeveloped and outdated. You need to prepare a report for the Administration Team with your findings. You’ll list the potential threats and offer recommendations.
Hint: The articles (below) will point out one obvious area of concern for the Radiology/Imaging dept, but please step back and think of these departments more holistically—how else are they vulnerable? Ch 9 from the text provides an excellent foundation, and the articles below will reiterate and expand on many of these same issues. (As an aside, remember that Cardiology uses medical devices).
These 3 articles will provide more background for this assignment:
Gillum, J., Kao, F., Larson, J. (2019, September 19). Millions of Americans’ medical images, data are available on the internet. Anyone can take a peek. Retrieved from
Wetsman, N. (2019, Apr 4). Health care’s huge cybersecurity problem. Retrieved from https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/4/18293817/cybersecurity-hospitals-health-care-scan-simulation
This next one is an advertisement for a product. It illustrates one potential issue though so I included it:
n.d. (2019, April 12). A new piece of malware that could endanger the healthcare sector. Retrieved from https://www.pandasecurity.com/mediacenter/news/new-malware-healthcare-sector/
Completing the assignment:
Please complete the assignment on the other Word doc, and use the formatting I’ve laid out.
Important Note: There has been a good amount of plagiarism in this class, so please use proper in-text citations, and include your sources in the reference list. If you directly quote from your source, then include quotations (and cite according to APA guidelines). If you lean heavily on your source, use in-text citation to give the author credit for their ideas. All the Report assignments are run through Turnin, and if you “similarity” score is above 15%, that is too much and I’ll ask you to redo it. I want to hear how YOU are processing this material! (I know, I sound like a broken record, right?)
References need to be in APA style. I dock pts if sources are not listed according to APA stylistic guidelines, and (important) if you use sources within the body of the Report but don’t cite.
Length: The assignment can be one concise page and should be no more than two pages long. I prefer single spacing rather than double or multiple. No need for a cover page and separate page for references for the Report assignments.
