For this Assignment, you will examine a recent nursing informatics-related healthcare policy enacted in the last five years. As many of the course resources are related to MACRA it would be alright to complete your assignment on MACRA.

FORMAT THIS ASSIGNMENT AS A FACT SHEET, NOT AN ACADEMIC PAPER. A Fact Sheet displays key information, facts and figures, in a visual manner using bullet points, tables, graphs, charts, and images. It is a single page document displayed in a visual format to emphasize key information. Here are some examples of Fact Sheets from a Google search “Fact Sheet Examples” https://www.google.com/search?q=fact+sheet+examples&rlz=1C1GGRV_enUS812US812&oq=fact+sheet&aqs=chrome.2.69i57j0l7.5963j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
To Prepare:
• Review the Resources on healthcare policy and regulatory/legislative topics related to health and nursing informatics.
• Consider the role of the nurse informaticist in relation to a healthcare organization’s compliance with various policies and regulations, such as the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).
• Research and select one health or nursing informatics policy (within the past 5 years) or regulation for further study. HIPAA and the HITECH-ACT were enacted over 10 years ago, they do not meet the criteria to choose a policy/regulation that has been enacted in the last five years. Even though it was enacted over five years ago, it is acceptable to select MACRA as many of the course resources are related to MACRA.
