  • 3. 

    The following are components of an information system. Which one is described as the computer and its peripheral equipment?

    • A.

      Data 

    • B.

      Telecommunication 

    • C.

      Software 

    • D.

      Hardware 

    Correct Answer
    D. Hardware 
    Explanation
    Hardware refers to the physical components of a computer system, including the computer itself and its peripheral equipment such as keyboards, monitors, printers, and storage devices. This contrasts with software, which refers to the programs and instructions that tell the hardware what to do. Telecommunication, on the other hand, refers to the transmission of information over long distances using electronic means. Therefore, hardware is the correct answer as it specifically describes the computer and its peripheral equipment.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    All of the following are circumstances why we need to reboot our computer except for;

    • A.

      Computer has frozen

    • B.

      Computer program does not run at all

    • C.

      Email cannot be sent or received 

    • D.

      Printer would print but too slow

    Correct Answer
    D. Printer would print but too slow
    Explanation
    Rebooting a computer is typically done to resolve issues related to the operating system or software. When a computer freezes, it becomes unresponsive, and a reboot can help to clear any temporary glitches and restore normal functionality. Similarly, if a computer program does not run at all, rebooting can help in restarting the system and resolving any software conflicts. Email issues can also be resolved by rebooting the computer, as it can refresh the network connections and fix any temporary communication problems. However, a slow printer is not a problem that can be fixed by rebooting the computer, as it is usually related to printer hardware or settings.

    Explanation
    Dr. Ahmed is correct if he says that "core measures" are interventions that have been proven to improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs. Core measures are a standardized set of evidence-based measures that are used to assess the quality of healthcare provided by hospitals. These measures focus on important aspects of patient care, such as timely administration of medications, prevention of infections, and appropriate management of chronic conditions. By implementing these measures, hospitals can improve the quality of care they provide, leading to better patient outcomes and potentially reducing healthcare costs.

    A device that runs software programs that allows you to input, store and manipulate data is called _______. A. An electronic device B. A mechanical device C. None

    Correct Answer
    A. An electronic device
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A. An electronic device because electronic devices, such as computers, smartphones, and tablets, are capable of running software programs that allow users to input, store, and manipulate data. These devices use electronic components and circuits to process and transmit data, making them suitable for data manipulation tasks. Mechanical devices, on the other hand, typically do not have the capability to run software programs and perform data manipulation functions.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    It is called clinical decision support systems (CDSS). A. Special Software Programs B. Special Hardware Programs C. None

    Correct Answer
    A, Special Software Programs
    Explanation
    Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) are software programs designed to assist healthcare professionals in making informed decisions about patient care. These programs use algorithms and databases to analyze patient data, medical history, and evidence-based guidelines to provide recommendations or alerts to clinicians. CDSS can help improve patient outcomes by reducing errors, providing timely and accurate information, and promoting adherence to best practices. Therefore, the correct answer is A, Special Software Programs.

    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because an Electronic Health Record (EHR) is indeed a part of the Clinical Information System (CIS) that stores patient documentation, orders, and test results electronically. EHRs are digital versions of a patient's paper chart and can be accessed by authorized healthcare providers. They provide a comprehensive view of a patient's medical history, allowing healthcare professionals to make informed decisions and provide better care.

    A computer cannot do anything without hardware.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because while hardware is necessary for a computer to function, it is not true that a computer cannot do anything without it. Computers can still perform certain tasks without hardware, such as running software simulations or executing commands in a virtual environment. Additionally, computers can also perform calculations and process data without physical hardware, as long as they have access to the necessary software and resources. Therefore, the statement is incorrect.
