You are taking the role of an informatics consultant specializing in healthcare who has a client organization (your client is the healthcare organization of your choice).

The client organization requests a set of recommendations on how they can improve their informatics systems in order to increase efficiency and effectiveness of processes.
You should produce a report including the following issues:
- Analyze the informatics systems currently used by your client organization.
- Carry an in-depth investigation into one particular informatics system that enhances operational efficiencies used by your client organization and discuss recommendations for how this system can be improved.
- Assess the ethical implications of dealing with data and discuss policies that are implemented in your client organization to mitigate ethical issues.
Use a mix of academic sources (books and journal articles) and non-academic sources (websites, news articles, specialist magazines, other publications etc.) to support your claims throughout.
A minimum of 15 references should be used here.
