Understanding Electronic Orders and Creating Problem Lists
In this unit, you were introduced to electronic orders, problem lists, lab results, and body mass index. For this assignment, you will get to demonstrate the skills you have learned by completing exercises using the Quippe software in the MyHealthProfessionsLab located in Blackboard.
First, use the instructions for “Exercise 6G: Discharging a Patient with Deep Vein Thrombosis” on page 245 of your textbook and “Exercise 7H: Patient with Upper Abdominal Chest Pain” on page 298 of your textbook to complete these exercises in the MyHealthProfessionsLab. Note: You do not have to complete step 4 in Exercise 6G or step 7 in Exercise 7H because you are not actually submitting the work in the lab.
After completing the exercises, compose a reflection paper about your experience that applies what you have learned in this unit. In your paper, be sure to include the following:
How was your overall experience using the software to document the patient encounter? Did you experience any issues while using the software?
Were you able to successfully complete the hospital discharge instructions? What do you feel was most beneficial about this exercise?
How do you feel that using problems lists can help you determine the education needed for a patient? What specific skills do you feel you have mastered? What skills do you need to improve?
Why are electronic orders and results important? How will you use them in your career?
Your reflection paper must be at least two pages in length. You are not required to use any outside resources, but if you choose to incorporate information from outside resources including your textbook, you must cite and reference them in APA format.
