Learning Objectives Reports At the conclusion of this learning module/unit, the student will be able to complete the following: • • • Examine the difference between informational and analytical reports. Distinguish informal versus formal writing styles and their appropriate use in context. Apply the 3×3 writing process to create a work plan outline. Reports Health informaticians are responsible for developing or contributing to reports including dashboards, trend reports, data analyses, clinical quality reports, medical error reports, etc. These reports are used to justify new budget expenditures, Medicare incentive payments, disease tracking, population health trends, drug utilization, drug events, vaccine registries, tumor registries, radiology utilization and more.

The purpose and audience dictate the type of report (informational or analytical), the style (informal or formal) and the approach (direct or indirect), (Guffey, 2018, Chapter 11). An effective work plan: • • • • • Provides the overall vision of your plan Prompts you to evaluate your research Helps you set priorities, dates, deadlines Provides a guideline for key topics and issues (Guffey, 2018) To facilitate your writing effort invest time to develop a plan (outline) as a guide. Guffey recommends you review the work plan outline with the requestor of the report before completing the full report (2018). This unit’s objective is to develop a work plan outline. Outlines provide an overall view of your proposed report and can be used for multiple types of documents and deliverables, such as strategic plans, slide presentations, project plans, performance evaluations, policies and more. Effective outlines organize thoughts and group ideas by hierarchy and subject matter. Outline formats vary depending on their focus, see page 164 of Guffey textbook for creating an outline. Guffey and Loewy, 2018, page 164. There are multiple resources on the web that provide additional guidance on the art of writing outlines. https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/the_writing_process/developing_an_outline/types_of _outlines.html The unit objectives focus on writing a work plan outline to seek a job/position as a health informatician. This provides students with the opportunity to develop an applicable plan to find a position in health informatics or obtain a promotion within the discipline instead of using a fictional case outline from the textbook. I hope students continue to use the plan and update it. There are 40+ students in the course and there will be over 40+ different plans created. A group authored outline/plan for the same assignment would yield additional nuances based on the group’s background, perspectives, dynamics, expertise and priorities. The course challenges you to plan and practice writing various types of documents, reports, etc., so you are prepared to author a report or document. Most often your supervisor will not provide a template or example as a guide. He or she will rely on your skills. The quality of your work sets the tone for your reliability, credibility and professionalism. Olympia Kalagidis References Guffey M. E. & Loewy D.
