Health Information Systems Poster Presentation Requirements
You will be assigned a topic to research and you will share your information with the class in an interesting, verbal, poster presentation. You will use PowerPoint to create the poster and will display it on the class screen during your presentation. Posters will not be printed but they will be available in Blackboard for further review.
You will submit the poster to the instructor as an email attachment. You may also submit supplemental material that enhances the presentation but is not appropriate for the poster. The supplemental material will be available in Blackboard for others to access. Submit the supplemental material as an email attachment and send it in the same email as the poster.
It is important to practice your poster presentation. Follow presentation guidelines discussed in HSA 370 and in other classes.
The presentation is worth 20 points. After presentations have been turned in, everyone will be allowed access to view each others posters and supplemental materials in Blackboard. This should help you understand all the topics and provide a source of definitions and references for future use.
All of the assigned topics are HUGE topics! You will learn much that you will not have time to share with the class. Therefore, a large part of your job is selecting the best information and examples for the poster presentation. Fortunately, we return to these topics again later in this class or other classes, so you will have chances to demonstrate your expertise in the future. You may also expand on your topic in your supplemental material.
presentation 10 minute
Poster and Presentation Content Should Include:
1. Introduction: This is primarily an introduction to the topic and a preview of the presentation. This may include historical information and/recent developments that add interest. Create the theme of the poster and entice the reader/listener to want to know more.
2. Key Terms or Concepts: Discuss key terms and concepts, as needed for the audience to understand your presentation. This should not take much presentation time nor much poster space.
3. Implications for Healthcare: Explain how this technology/system/topic can solve problems of the healthcare delivery system or improve patient care. You can be specific and provide examples.
4. HSA Issues: Identify and explain what the health services administrator or health information manager should know concerning this topic. For example, are there related management or supervisory issues, policy and procedure issues, quality or safety issues (pro and con), security concerns, financial concerns, legal concerns, ethical concerns, other?
5. Use images on the poster. It should not be all text. You will be explaining the issues to us, so use the poster as a visual aid. At least two images are required.
6. Supplemental material that enhances the poster content or presentation can be turned in separately. However, it must be related to your topic and this relationship should be explained during the presentation.
7. References: Provide a complete reference list as a Word document that you turn in separately. Cite references verbally during the presentation.
Style issues will be discussed in class.
Grading Criteria for Poster Presentation
All content requirements met
Evidence of topic insight and development (you do not just copy/paste what is obviously developed by a reference source, you interpret and develop the topic to fit our class needs) This is a critical criterion for those wanting grades of A or B for content.
Citations when appropriate (verbally and on the poster)
Submitted appropriate supplemental material that supports and enhances the poster presentation content (will not receive an A for content without this)
Ability to interest the audience (not boring, generates good questions)
Show self-interest or enthusiasm for the topic (act as if you care)
Creative or interesting content or examples.
Poster is not all text-appropriate use of graphs, tables, diagrams, other images
Poster is well-designed and professional (neat, correct spellings, readable fonts)
3. Organization/Preparedness/Professionalism/Speaking Ability -15%
Timing-within minimum/maximum requirements (very important!)
Obvious that you have practiced
Appropriate use of your tools for a verbal presentation (Poster- know it, do not need to constantly read from it; Explain diagrams, graphs, tables, etc.)
Confident (in command of the room; satisfactory stage presence, not apologetic or self-effacing).
Speaks with appropriate volume, tone, and rate so that everyone can easily hear and understand.
Maintains eye contact with the audience. Does not read aloud constantly from the poster or personal notes.
4. Reference list-10%
Style is appropriate and consistent
Quality references (reliable and valid sources)
Quantity (adequate number for your topic; minimum of 8 quality references = C for this section)
In addition to the presentation, develop an original Healthcare Information Systems Model for 3 points. The model should be based on peer presentations, class discussion, and readings. The model should show goals/purposes, relationships, and technology for the use of healthcare information systems. It should fit on one or two 8.5 x 11 inch pages. The more aspects you can accurately incorporate, the better your grade will be. This will not be easy! Various approaches are acceptable, such as a model from the perspective of a specific organization, a physician, a patient, an administrator, other. We can discuss ideas in class (and out of class). You will verbally explain your model to the class and it will probably be posted in the classroom.
Grading the Model: Content Development (especially your ability to show relationships), Accuracy, Ease of Interpretation, and Creativity.
Evidence of effort will be rewarded for this difficult exercise.
HIS Presentation Discussion and Question/Answers
Active-listening is expected for all student presentations. Active-listening means that you are paying attention to the speaker and becoming engaged in the presentation (not playing on an electronic device or paging through notes about your own presentation please be courtesy and professional). Additionally, you should ask intelligent questions at the end of presentations and may be assigned specific presentations to ask questions of. Topics may generate discussion (this is good) in which we can all learn more about the topic and how different topics are related. Participation in Q&A and discussions is worth 2 points.
Teaching and Learning Goals
This project should expand your knowledge of healthcare information system and technology topics. You will also enhance your skills in searching for scholarly information, selecting the best information (most relevant to your needs/audience), presenting the information in an organized and interesting format, and synthesizing a large amount of information into a manageable form to enhance communication (eg: your poster and your model).
Part of the learning experience comes from listening to each other, so attendance on the presentation and model days is important; however, those with excused absences can be given an alternative assignment for active listening on the excused day. If you know you will have an absence during the scheduled presentation/model days, please inform the instructor as soon as possible.
Healthcare Information Systems Presentation Topics: Spring 2017
Many of these topics were introduced to you in previous courses. For this presentation, you need to provide much more depth. Repeating previous course material does not fulfill the assignment requirements!
11. Internet of Things (IoT):
In healthcare, this is sometimes called the Internet of Healthy Things (IoHT).
Explain what the IoT is,
the health-related data it generates (such as from patients using remote monitoring devices or administrative data in networked copiers and printers),
and discuss problems and solutions related to the management of information produced over the IoT.
Talk about cases related to the subject
Solutions of the problem with security and privacy issues with IoT
