Healthcare Assignment 1
Present a public health initiative using a variety of communication methods.
You work for your county’s public health department. Based on recent events, as well as local environmental and socioeconomic conditions, the county has noted sharp rises in specific health conditions (particularly in your vulnerable populations). Your job is to create an evidence-based, consumer-facing 90-second video script and storyboard for the video filming and production crew.

Healthcare Assignment 4
An increasing number of geriatric patients live in assisted living facilities. Please read this article from Forbes, 2020 Historic High Rates of STI’s Among Older Americans and then consider interventions or educational programs that you might suggest for residents of an assisted living facility.

The goal is to make your post interesting and engaging so others will want to read/respond to it. Synthesize and summarize from your resources in order to avoid the use of direct quotes, which can often be dry and boring. No direct quotes are allowed in the discussion board posts.
Healthcare Assignment 5
In this activity, you will be proposing a project to build a Learning Healthcare System (LHS) that utilizes data and technology to continuously improve patient outcomes. You will define the scope of your project, conduct a needs assessment, develop a data governance framework, establish a data analytics team and a clinical improvement team, engage patients and their families, and build a learning community. The aim of this activity is to help you gain a more in-depth understanding of the concept of LHS and to develop the skills required to plan and implement a project that leverages electronic health records (EHRs), data analytics, and quality improvement methodologies to enhance patient care and reduce healthcare costs.
Propose a design where the patient table serves as the main table and contains general information about each patient; the diagnosis table lists all possible diagnoses, the treatment table lists all possible treatments, and the outcome table lists all possible outcomes.
- Understand the concept of a Learning Healthcare System and its benefits: Review the provided background information and additional resources to gain a better understanding of the topic.
- Define the scope of your project: What specific healthcare issue or area will your project focus on, and what are the objectives you want to achieve?
- Conduct a needs assessment: Evaluate the current state of healthcare delivery, data availability, and technology infrastructure. Identify the gaps and challenges that need to be addressed to achieve your project objectives.
- Develop a data governance framework: Define policies and procedures for data ownership, access, and security. Ensure compliance with relevant regulations and ethical standards.
- Establish a data analytics team: Identify the skills and expertise required to develop data models, algorithms, and dashboards to support clinical decision-making. Ensure that the team has access to the necessary tools and resources.
- Create a clinical improvement team: This team will lead the implementation of evidence-based interventions and monitor their effectiveness using CQI methods. Ensure that the team has the necessary skills, resources, and support.
- Engage patients and their families: Develop patient advisory groups and other patient-centered initiatives to involve patients in care planning and decision-making processes. Ensure that patient’s voices are heard and their needs are addressed.
- Build a learning community: Create a forum for healthcare providers, researchers, and patients to share knowledge, collaborate, and innovate. Encourage participation and engagement to foster a culture of learning and collaboration.
- Develop a project plan: Create a detailed plan that outlines the timeline, milestones, and resources required to implement the Learning Healthcare System project.
- Evaluate the outcomes: Monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the project in achieving its objectives. Identify areas for improvement and make necessary adjustments.
Remember to write a clear and concise proposal that outlines the key elements of your project, including the objectives, methodology, expected outcomes, and timeline.
