Week 5 –
Focus of the Final Paper
“As health care becomes more complex, the interplay between the law and health
care increases. Government regulation of the health-care field continues almost
without pause while lawsuits against health-care providers appear to increase.
The interplay of these forces significantly affects the health information
manger’s ability to manage patient-specific health information. Thus, the
health information manager must possess a fundamental understanding of the law”
(McWay, 2010, p.3).
Consider the various legal and ethical aspects of health information management
that we have discussed over the past five weeks. For your Final
Paper summarize and evaluate the most significant information related to each
of the four main components of the course. Your paper should be eight- to
ten- pages (excluding title and reference pages) and utilize at least six
