Discussion in-depth post and peer responses make sure you include the options questions, resources, or points, depending on the option selected.
Option 1 Questions to answer
What implications does rapid change have for healthcare and nursing informatics?
What are the possible benefits and potential drawbacks and challenges of this acceleration of change?
Do you believe that faculty members have legitimate reasons for concern about the shift toward student-centered, tech-enhanced, collaborative instruction, or do they think that instructors who feel threatened by this shift are just “old school”?
Option 2 Resources to cover

Application programming interfaces (APIs) are powerful tools that help support interoperability in healthcare. Simply put, APIs allow a software “Application A” to interact with a software “Application B” without Application A needing to know how Application B’s software is designed internally.
Option 3 Points to be addressed:
7 standards of simulations
What would that scenario look like and include?
What would be your objective?

Health IT education is supporting programs and doctors and hospitals to switch over to electronic health records (EHR) to improve in healthcare. They have also partnered up with medicare and Medicaid electronic health records(EHR) to established payments to the hospitals and workers that are eligible to receive them. This helps with switching from paperwork records to electronic records. They developed programs that help with technical assistance if needed. One of the programs that are supporting Health IT education is Curriculum Development. Curriculum Development is engaging Health IT education by funding schools of higher education to support it and is being used by people at the Community College Consortia(Adoption and Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records Support Programs Carried Out Under HITECH, 2011).

For this week I have decided to write a short summary of various HITECH programs that are assisting or supporting health IT education in my area.
Various programs have been created to support and educate physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare providers in the meaningful use of electronic health records or EHR’s. The Health Information Economic and Clinical Health Act or HITECH created incentive programs in order to get providers to use certified EHR’s instead of paper charts. These EHR systems must be certified for use by the Department of Health and Human Services before they are adopted. The financial incentives provided assist providers in switching to EHR’s effortlessly. Another program created was the Regional Extension Centers or REC’s which focuses on providers of small primary care clinics, rural, and community clinics. These RECs provide the support necessary for these smaller facilities to use EHR’s. In the state of Nevada, Health Insight is the provider used to establish meaningful use of EHRs. They assist in case management, improvement of patient outcomes, and delivery of care.
With the use of EHRs privacy and security are a very big concern. As a result, security alerts have been created to notify patients of health information breaches. HITECH has also developed a security toolkit to assist users and providers with security.
HITECH has also created programs to help increase the number of competent workers in the field. These programs consist of curriculum development, community college consortia, competency examination, and university-based training. These programs are aimed to provide the necessary education to be competent in the use of health information technology. These programs will help support the adoption and use of meaningful use of HER’s. The Nevada Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Scholars Program is a two-year program that provides the education needed to serve communities in rural areas.
Lastly, programs such as Beacon and SHARP are helping to improve community health and provide insight on potential barriers to the adoption of EHR’s.
