Introduction: With the rapid transformation of the U.S. health
today’s HIM (including health care managers) professional requires an advanced
level of skill sets and training. This includes the basic ability to conduct health care
research and analysis raw data in order to derive meaningful information. Conduct
a descriptive research study on the assigned topic “Barriers to Accepting Health
Deliverables: Your submission must include an APA-formatted cover sheet.
Step One (Part A): Identifying the Variableso
Given the assigned research topic “Barriers to Accepting Health
Information Technologies”, identify your independent and dependent
study variable(s) [Refer to the accompanying reference document
attached below titled “Pointers for Completing Steps One (Part A &
Step One (Part B): Formulate The Hypothesiso
State your hypothesis [Refer to the accompanying reference document
attached below titled “Pointers for Completing Step One (Part A &
At this point you should have devised both the variables (independent and
dependent) and hypothesis as it relates to the assigned topic “Barriers to Accepting
Health Information Technologies”. At this point, let’s move forward and build
upon steps one in order to complete the first deliverable due, step two.
Deliverables: Submit one (1) single document at the conclusion of Week Six no
later than Sunday, by 11:59 PM EST. Your submission must include an APAformatted cover sheet.
Step Two: Designing a Research Survey & Soliciting Participantso
Part A. Creating a Cover Letter
▪ Create a one (1) page cover letter that discusses the following:
An overview of the topic/study [Hint Hint “Refer to the
assigned topic “Barriers to Accepting Health Information
State the purpose/need of the study
State the variables of the study [originally created in step
State the hypothesis [originally created in step two]
State your sample size and explain the reasoning behind
the selected size
Discuss the expected benefits of the study
Discuss how you plan to pilot test the survey before
Include an official statement requesting participation in
Identify and explain any associated risk(s) by
participating in the study. In addition, discuss your
plan(s)/measure(s) to ensure the confidentiality, privacy
and security of the collected data gathered from
State a specific deadline to complete the survey, shall not
exceed sixty (60) days [state in the format of Month,
Date & Year]
Share your data retention schedule and the process of
discarding the collected data [provide specifics on how
the data will be discarded and the time frame of
Closing Remarks (along with your contact information)
[Include the name and contact number of the designed
person of contact, any closing notes etc.]
Part B. Survey Design
o Having identified the variables and hypothesis in the previous steps,
design a five (5) question survey as it relates to the assigned research
topic “Barriers to Accepting Health Information Technologies”. The
survey must consist of a mix of opened-ended and closed-ended
questions. Be sure to include the answer choices as well for each
An example of an independent variable may be age or drug type (e.g. a drug
may be categorized as a study drug or a placebo).
A dependent variable is believed to change based on the independent variable.
For example, weight might be a dependent variable that changes based on a
person’s age. In the example of drug type, heart burn could be a dependent
variable. Heartburn may decrease if the study drug is taken.
You may also want to do some further research on your own to learn more
about variables and variable relationships. Variables may be numerical or
For this assignment, use the title “Barriers to Accepting Health Information
Technologies” to identify independent and dependent variables that should be
investigated in the research survey that you will create. Consider what types of
relationships may occur between these variables. You will produce survey
questions that further investigate these relationships.
Step One (Part B): Formulate the Hypothesis
The instructions state, “State your hypothesis.”
Please review Chapter 17, Healthcare Data Analytics within the Oachs textbook
for definitions of variables. Also refer to the following links. Also refer to the
After you have a clear research topic in mind, have identified independent and
dependent variables, and have considered relationships between these variables,
you will want to make a statement of what you predict that relationship will be.
For example, based on the literature, I believe that weight increases with age.
Now I can convert this statement into a hypothesis. My hypothesis is, “Weight
increases with age.” Since this is what I believe to be true, this is called the
alternative hypothesis, denoted H1. The null hypothesis, denoted H0, is what a
researcher would actually test. A null hypothesis is always going to support a
status quo or indicate that there is no difference or no relationship. For my
example, H0: “Weight change is independent of age.”
Here are some generalized way of presenting your null (H0) and alternative
(H1) hypotheses. If you are comparing categorical data,
•H0: Variable A is independent of Variable B.
•H1: Variable A is dependent on variable B. If you are testing
against a set value,
•H1: ≠ value (or) H1: > value (or) H1: < value For this assignment, use your predicted relationship between the independent and dependent variables that you identified in step one to create a null and alternative hypothesis. •H0: = value ... Purchase answer to see full attachment
