Note: Complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.


For this assessment, you will assume the role of a mid-level administrator who has been asked to develop a presentation on compliance with current regulations on health informatics systems.

Note: You are not required to deliver this presentation to your fellow learners in this course.

Presentation Tools

You may use Microsoft PowerPoint or any other suitable presentation software to create your slides. If you elect to use an application other than PowerPoint, check with faculty beforehand to avoid any potential file compatibility issues.

Use the speaker’s notes section of each slide to develop your talking points and cite your sources, as appropriate. If you need help designing your presentation, you are encouraged to review the various presentation resources provided for this assessment. These resources will help you to design an effective presentation, whether you choose to use PowerPoint or other presentation design software.


Develop a slide deck to support your presentation, detailing a plan to comply with current regulations related to the HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act, HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), and ACA (Affordable Care Act).

Tailor your plan to a specific health care setting of your choice.

Note: Remember that you can submit all—or a portion of—your draft presentation to Smarthinking for feedback, before you submit the final version for this assessment. If you plan on using this free service, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback.

Presentation Format and Length

  • Your presentation should include the following slides:
    • Title slide.
    • Purpose or objectives of your presentation.
    • References (at the end of your presentation).
  • Your slide deck should consist of 10–15 slides, not including the title, purpose, and references slides.
    • Slides need to highlight key concepts.
    • Bullet points should be in the form of short sentences or key terms.
    • Slides should not be in narrative format or pictures only.

Supporting Evidence

Use credible scholarly or professional evidence to support your analysis and conclusions.

Format all citations using APA style. Remember that an APA citation includes both the in-text citation (the author’s last name and the year of publication) and the full reference for the source.
