HS410-1: Analyze taxonomies, clinical vocabularies, terminologies and nomenclature used in healthcare settings.
Your boss, the Director of Human Resources at a prominent healthcare organization, has asked you to prepare a two-part PowerPoint presentation as part of her presentation to new employees during orientation. Your PowerPoint is to familiarize new staff from both clinical and administrative departments with the most common clinical and healthcare management terminology, which they will be exposed to and expected to use on their new job. Terminology shared should include aspects of taxonomies, clinical vocabularies, terminologies, and nomenclatures used in healthcare settings. A minimum of three slides should be dedicated for both departments. Finally, include a section devoted to how management and clinical departments interact for a patient from the continuum of care for at least two levels.
What information will you include in your PowerPoint slides? What notations will you make in the speaker’s notes for your boss to stress? How will you organize the material so that it will be presented in an effective, non-crowded fashion for these new employees who are just being exposed to terminology that you use on a daily basis?
