    Which of the following processes varies most by clinical specialty?

    • A.

      Diagnostic Tests

    • B.

      Billing

    • C.

      Office visits

    Correct Answer
    A. Diagnostic Tests
    Explanation
    The process that varies most by clinical specialty is Diagnostic Tests. This is because different medical specialties require different types of diagnostic tests to diagnose and treat specific conditions. For example, a cardiologist may require more cardiac diagnostic tests such as EKGs and stress tests, while a dermatologist may require more skin biopsies and allergy tests. Therefore, the type and frequency of diagnostic tests vary significantly depending on the clinical specialty.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following would be variations of a Diagnostic test process?

    • A.

      Patient can not tolerate the test

    • B.

      Patient is not compliant with preparatory instructions

    • C.

      Test returns a false positive

    • D.

      Test is conducted by referral to an external facility

    Correct Answer
    D. Test is conducted by referral to an external facility
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because conducting a diagnostic test by referring the patient to an external facility is a variation of the diagnostic test process. In this case, the test is not conducted at the same facility where the patient is being treated, but rather at a different location. This could be due to various reasons such as availability of specialized equipment or expertise, or the need for a specific type of test that is not available at the initial facility.

    Rate this question:

    Which of the following would be variations of an appointment scheduling process?

    • A.

      Miscommunication of the date/time of appointment

    • B.

      Online appointment scheduling

    • C.

      Appointment scheduling session timed out

    Correct Answer
    B. Online appointment scheduling
    Explanation
    The variations of an appointment scheduling process mentioned in the options are examples of different ways the process can be carried out. Miscommunication of the date/time of appointment refers to a potential issue that can occur during the process, where there is a misunderstanding or error in conveying the correct date or time. Online appointment scheduling, on the other hand, is a specific method of scheduling appointments that involves using online platforms or systems to book appointments. The third option, appointment scheduling session timed out, suggests a situation where the scheduling process is interrupted or terminated due to a timeout or expiration of the session.

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      Potential drug interaction identified by pharmacy

    • C.

      Use of online medication service/pharmacy

    Correct Answer
    B. Potential drug interaction identified by pharmacy
    Explanation
    The potential drug interaction identified by the pharmacy would be an exception in the prescription process. This means that if the pharmacy identifies a potential interaction between two prescribed medications, it would be considered an exception and may require further action, such as contacting the prescriber for clarification or suggesting an alternative medication. This step is crucial to ensure patient safety and prevent any harmful drug interactions.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following would be an exception to a document receiving process?

    • A.

      Receipt of fax documents

    • B.

      Receipt of electronic documents

    • C.

      Receipt of documents within a week of patient visit

    • D.

      Reciept of documents with no patient identifiers

    Correct Answer
    D. Reciept of documents with no patient identifiers
    Explanation
    An exception to a document receiving process would be the receipt of documents with no patient identifiers. This means that the documents do not contain any information that can be used to identify the patient. In a typical document receiving process, it is important to have patient identifiers to ensure proper identification and organization of the documents. However, in this case, the absence of patient identifiers would deviate from the standard process.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following may indicate needed EHR functionality

    • A.

      Generic processes used by clinic

    • B.

      Process variations used by clinic

    • C.

      Process exceptions likely encountered by a clinic

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because all three options - generic processes used by a clinic, process variations used by a clinic, and process exceptions likely encountered by a clinic - can indicate the need for Electronic Health Record (EHR) functionality. Generic processes used by a clinic may require EHR functionality to streamline and automate those processes. Process variations used by a clinic may require EHR functionality to accommodate and track different variations effectively. Process exceptions likely encountered by a clinic may require EHR functionality to handle and manage those exceptions efficiently. Therefore, all three options can indicate the need for EHR functionality.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which best describes the goal of knowledge acquisition (KA)?

    • A.

      To increase the analysts clinical knowledge

    • B.

      To gather and capture process knowledge

    • C.

      To craete process diagrams

    Correct Answer
    B. To gather and capture process knowledge
    Explanation
    The goal of knowledge acquisition (KA) is to gather and capture process knowledge. This involves collecting information and understanding the processes involved in a particular domain or field. By doing so, analysts can gain a deeper understanding of how things work and make informed decisions based on this knowledge. KA helps in identifying patterns, trends, and best practices, which can be used to improve processes and make them more efficient. It also helps in documenting and preserving knowledge for future reference and sharing with others.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which of the following is true for knowledge acquisition in support of EMR adoption?

    • A.

      Aquiring the software vendor is a likely means of KA

    • B.

      Clinic staff can not require knowledge through technology process

    • C.

      Clinics will aquire knowledge thorugh process analysis

    Correct Answer
    C. Clinics will aquire knowledge thorugh process analysis
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that clinics will acquire knowledge through process analysis. This means that in order to adopt an electronic medical records (EMR) system, clinics will need to analyze their current processes and identify areas where knowledge acquisition is needed. This may involve training staff, updating workflows, and implementing new procedures to ensure a smooth transition to the EMR system. Acquiring the software vendor is not a likely means of knowledge acquisition, and clinic staff can indeed acquire knowledge through technology processes, but the most effective approach is through process analysis.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which of the following types of knowledge is the easiest for organizations to share with others?

    • A.

      Coded knowledge

    • B.

      Tacit Knowledge

    • C.

      Sticky knowledge

    Correct Answer
    A. Coded knowledge
    Explanation
    Coded knowledge refers to explicit and easily transferable information that can be documented, stored, and shared in a systematic manner. This type of knowledge is typically in the form of written documents, manuals, databases, or software code. Organizations find it easier to share coded knowledge because it can be easily disseminated to others through various communication channels such as emails, intranets, or training sessions. Unlike tacit knowledge, which is personal and difficult to articulate, coded knowledge can be readily understood and utilized by others within the organization. Sticky knowledge, on the other hand, refers to knowledge that is difficult to transfer and tends to remain within individuals or specific groups, making it less easy to share with others.
