Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
International Considerations Scenario [WLO: 2] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 5]
Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapters 34 and 36 of Health Informatics: An Interprofessional Approach.
Using the information below respond to the discussion question provided to you by your instructor. Based on your Ashford University major of study (e.g., Health Information Management, Nursing, Health Administration, Health and Human Services or Public Health) analyze benefits and issues associated with these informatics systems and exchange of data in these settings. Specifically, examine the data in the data repository from the standpoint of the challenges related to the international deployment of eHealth and informatics solutions discussed in Chapter 34. Analyze the techniques that you used to extract data from this health repository. Analyze the data according to the benefits these data provide to the stakeholders managing global health.
You are currently a health professional working in a U.S. based organization as part of an interdisciplinary project team who is planning to host a conference on how the Internet of things (IoT) can be used to address international health needs. As part of this project team, your leadership asks you analyze the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Health Observatory Data Repository (Links to an external site.). Based on your Ashford University major of study, analyze the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) data in the WHO repository as assigned by your instructor.
Initial Post: Your initial post should be a minimum of 350 words. Utilize a minimum of three unique credible or scholarly sources (excluding the textbook or other course provided resources) cited in APA format, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center’s Citing Within Your Paper . Keep in mind that scholarly sources include peer reviewed articles and non-commercial websites. Review the Library’s Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) tip sheet for more information about sources. Multiple pages from the same scholarly website will be counted as one scholarly source.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your peers with each response being a minimum of five full sentences. At least one peer response should be to a peer who is in a different Ashford University major than you. Compare and contrast how your peers’ approach to the informatics solution proposed is alike or different than the approach you recommended in your major of study. What specific data and information does your major of study bring to the development of the informatics solution? Your initial post and responses to peers must be on three different days of the week.
