Issues of Interoperability and Data Sharing Discussion


Discussion 1: Issues of Interoperability and Data Sharing The CDC has developed myriad informatics applications in support of disease surveillance at the federal level. Information sharing among these applications enables public health personnel to better understand disease trends that may be difficult to interpret from the examination of a single system. However, a variety of legal, ethical, and practical issues arise as a result of this sharing of information. The potential for problems is magnified when information is available to and shared among multiple systems. To prepare for this Discussion, review your Learning Resources. Examine your local public health system(s). As you gather information, critically evaluate the effectiveness of the surveillance systems you explore. Consider ways in which you could improve any obstacles the system faces as well as the standards for information sharing. By Day 3 Post an analysis of the obstacles that impact interoperability of the disease surveillance systems. Propose ways to improve/address the legal, ethical, and practical data-sharing obstacles. Evaluate how this impacts the future of local, state, national, and international systems/agencies sharing and use of information. Support your suggestions with additional scholarly resources. Use APA formatting for your Discussion and to cite your resources.   500 words 4-6 references citation APA  6     Discussion 2: Future Research Throughout this program you have been encouraged to consider your role as a scholar-practitioner and consider possible opportunities to engage in future research. As you complete this course, think about issues or topics that have appealed to you and what gaps might exist in the current literature on those issues. What particular areas might you be interested in pursuing for a possible dissertation topic? How might you make an impact in the field? To prepare for this Discussion, consider various public health issues related to disease surveillance or health informatics about which you may wish to conduct further research. Think about how you might utilize the information you gained in this course and apply it to your dissertation research. Using the Walden Library, search for topical areas of interest that might be most appropriate for the issue you selected. By Day 4 Post a brief description of a current public health disease surveillance or health informatics issue about which you might be interested in conducting further research for a possible dissertation topic. Then explain why that issue interests you. Finally, describe two ways the information you gathered in this course can be applied to your future dissertation research or your role as a scholar-practitioner. Be specific and use examples to illustrate your points. Support your suggestions with additional scholarly resources. Use APA formatting for your discussion and to cite your resources.   500 WORDS  4 REFERENCES APA 6 CITATION
