” the radiologist at your hospital reports to the administrator that 30 patients have been diagnosed with brain tumors during the past 2 months.

For this Assignment, consider the following scenario:
” The radiologist at your hospital reports to the administrator that 30 patients have been diagnosed with brain tumors during the past 2 months. The administrator requests a report detailing the number of patients diagnosed with brain tumors during the past 6 months. However, the radiology department uses a free-text entry for their diagnoses, and their system does not communicate with the larger electronic health record (EHR) system installed at the hospital.”
You recognize an opportunity to address challenges with the electronic health record (EHR) system in your hospital and decide to also write a proposal for a solution to improve your hospital’s EHR system.
Based on this scenario, analyze each of the challenges described below that the hospital may need to address:
-Vocabulary standards
-Interoperability
-Workarounds
Patient safety
-Patient privacy and security when pulling reports
Reflect on potential solutions to each of the challenges described.
Research change theories that might assist in your convincing the institution to implement potential solutions.
Reflect on how an electronic health record system analytic API could help interpret the data found in the scenario.
