EHR systems in all sizes of health systems, hospitals, clinics, and practices store a significant amount of data referred to as “patient generated data”. The quality and amount of data in the EHRs is dependent on many different healthcare stakeholders. Health professionals are given the task of analyzing the information entered and translating it into knowledge to provide the best quality of care. Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research on EHR.
Tasks: Based on your research and understanding, answer the following questions:
· Identify and describe the stakeholders involved in collecting and the stakeholders involved in contributing to data collection in the EHR system.
· Examine how EHR systems reduce cost and increase quality of care?
· Discuss and explain how EHR systems components may contribute to Surveillance Systems and knowledge management of certain health conditions?

The family Enterobacteriaceae contains some organisms living in the intestines without harming the host and some organisms that are harmful to the host.
Based on your research, respond to the following:
· What is meant by the term “enteric pathogen”?
· Why are anaerobic organisms generally not seen in a routine fecal specimen or culture?
· What are the indole test, methyl red test, voges- proskauer test, and citrate test (IMViC) reactions? Describe in detail all four reactions (what media is used, important ingredients, what each reaction measures, and what positive and negative results mean).
· Create a flowchart for the isolation and identification of specific enteric bacteria from fecal samples.

2. Why is the IMViC useful in identifying Enterobacteriaceae? Are further biochemical tests necessary for complete identification?
3. What diagnostic test differentiates Proteus and Providencia species from other Enterobacteriaceae?
4. How is E. coli distinguished from P. vulgaris on MacConkey agar? On a TSI slant?

Respiratory Tract Infections
Respiratory tract infections are the chief cause of absenteeism in schools as well as places of work. From the common cold to the more serious bronchitis, respiratory tract infections are usually infectious and thus easily passed on from one person to another.
· Classify respiratory tract diseases, their causes, and the pattern of associated symptoms.
· How are infections of upper respiratory tract different from those of lower respiratory tract?
· Why are infections of the upper respiratory tract milder as compared to those pertaining to the lower respiratory tract?
· Describe the curative methods for each of upper and lower respiratory tract infections.
· What are three specific factors of the immune system that help to clear the lower lung of infectious agents?
