This course is comprised of a series of Individual Project assignments that will contribute to a final assignment submission at the end of the course.

The final assignment is due in Week 5.

Health care facilities treat many types of patients. For hospitals, patients are called inpatients and stay overnight. For outpatient facilities, such as a clinic or ambulatory center, patients will arrive for an appointment, treatment, test, or procedure and then return home the same day. For a long-term facility, such as a nursing home, patients will stay for weeks or months—or even years. Keeping a patient record of treatment rendered is important to maintain a health care facility, support the reimbursement process to receive payment for services rendered, and sustain the health of the patient. The patient record is a legal document. There is a saying in health care, “If it was not documented, it was not done.” These patient data can be in paper or electronic format. The type of data collected in each facility’s patient health records is established by required standards or regulations. For this assignment, in 1–2 pages, you will review the three data sets below and describe each data set element. You will also list 1 similarity and 1 difference between the data sets.

 

Uniform Hospital Discharge Data Set (UHDDS) for inpatients Uniform Ambulatory Care Data Set (UACDS) for outpatient or ambulatory patients Minimum Data Set (MDS) for long-term care

Be sure to support your information by citing at least 2 references using APA format.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
