I was assigned to do OPTION 1

Information Risk Planning and Management

By Day 1 of Week 1, your instructor will assign each student an option for the assignment. With the explosion of data in the healthcare system, traditional policies and procedures are often inadequate to assess the potential risks in data  generation, data sharing and data storage. External forces such as federal and state laws and regulations may mandate certain actions to protect  information and report breeches in information. This week’s discussion focuses on the assessment of the current state in preparation for developing an Information governance strategic plan.

Option 1: Legal and Regulatory requirements.

Part 1: Prepare a summary of the federal requirements for information retention, privacy, and security requirements. Your response should be a table format.

Law/Regulation/Joint Commission Requirement

Topic (Retention, privacy, security, other)

Specific requirement summarized (Do not copy and paste the law or regulation into the table)

Source of information (URL)

Part 2: Other organizational information maintained by the organization may not be addressed by legislation or accrediting organization standards. Identify at least two other examples of knowledge management content or knowledge bases. For example, what is the best practice for maintaining email?

Guided Response: Your 250 to 350 word response should address each component of the assigned topic with specific details for future use as a reference.  Post a minimum of two follow-up responses to peers by Day 7. Each peer response should be a minimum of five full sentences and should reflect evaluation for the initial post content and recommendations. Use a minimum of two scholarly sources (one source may be the government website), other than textbooks, in APA format as outlined by the Writing Center. Your three required posts must be on three different days of the week.
