HCM 620 Southern New Hampshire Merging of Medical Facilities Case Study
I’m studying and need help with a Marketing question to help me learn.
Read the following case study:
The Big University Medical Center is taking over the Regional Hospital and merging their patients. Each hospital has its own electronic medical record (EMR). There is a concern that the unique medical record number from each hospital will no longer be unique after the patient data are merged. In addition, while the Big University MC is using Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) to describe the procedures performed on patients, the Regional Hospital made up its own descriptions of procedures.
What steps would you need to take to merge the Regional Hospital patients and their records with the Big University Medical Center’s EMR? How could you reconcile the conflicting medical record numbers? How would you merge the Regional Hospital’s procedure descriptions with the CPT used by the Big University MC?
