Your team has been hired to develop or select an appropriate software package for a mid-sized regional
hospital (Community Health) to use for the home health care portion of their organization. The hospital is
located in the Mid-Western portion of the United States close to a large metropolitan area. Patients include
residents in the city and suburban areas near the hospital.
The home health services of Community are administered in the patients’ homes as opposed to at a clinic
or in the hospital. It allows patients to self-administer routine tests such as blood pressure, heart rate,
glucose levels, etc. using monitors in their homes. The results of these tests are then automatically
transmitted to the hospital or nearest home heaith facility. These are processed and monitored by the
hospital staff. Another feature, called LifeAid, allows a patient to press a button on a necklace or bracelet
which transmits a signal indicating the need for immediate assistance. Clinical staff visits community home
health patients regularly to monitor patient progress and ensure the technology is working properly.
Your team has been hired to select an appropriate DBaaS for Community Health to use for storing patient
records. As a reminder, the hospital is located in the Mid-Western portion of the United States close to a
large metropolitan area. Patients include residents in the city and suburban areas near the hospital.
- Research and identify at least two laws that regulate the storage of patient medical records (State and
- identify the security and ethical risks and/or drawbacks of using cloud storage for this purpose.
- Explain the benefits of using cloud storage for this purpose.
- Then identify a specific DBaaS (cloud storage) that would meet the legal requirements for storage of
- Explain why you chose this service.
Most of the neurons are myelinated in the CNS of mammals,, but the cells that form the myelin are oligodendrocytes rather than Schwann cells. Unlike the Schwann cell, which forms the myelin between two nodes of Ranvier on a single neuron, oligodendrocytes emit multiple processes that form myelin on many neighboring axons. Generation and conduction of impulse in nerve cells Nerve cells have a low threshold for excitation responding to electrical, chemical, or mechanical stimulus. Two types of physicochemical disturbances are produced and these are the only electrical responses of neurons and other excitable tissues,. local, non propagated potentials; and propagated potentials, the action potentials (or nerve impulses) and they are the main language of the nervous system. They are produced by alterations in ion channels causing changes in the conduction of ions across the cell membrane. These electrical events are rapid, measured in milliseconds (ms); and the potential changes are small, being measured in millivolts (mV). The impulse is normally transmitted (conducted) along the axon to its termination. Conduction of nerve impulses is rapid but much slower than that of electricity. Conduction is an active process it is self-propagating , and the impulse moves at a constant amplitude and velocity. Resting membrane potential The resting membrane potential represents an equilibrium situation at which the driving force for the membrane-permeant ions down their concentration gradients across the membrane is equal and opposite to the driving force for these ions down their electrical gradients. In neurons, the concentration of K+ is much higher inside than outside the cell, while the reverse is the case for Na+. This concentration difference is established by the Na+K+ ATPase. In neurons, the resting membrane potential is usually about –70 mV, which is close to the equilibrium potential for K+.>GET ANSWER
