Health Information Management Student Presents Paper

Jordan Bassett Receives International Acclaim for her Final Research Project

A Medical team hears presentation from health information management specialist

The CD-ED Health Information Management program is of top quality, arming graduates with real world experience and in-depth (technical) knowledge (with the convenience of online learning).

This is evident as graduate Jordan Bassett wrote a research essay that was recently selected to be featured in an industry publication, for The International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTdH).

The Health Information Management program requires a self-directed research project as part of the 2 year, online program.

The research project takes place at the very end of the program, once students have learned:

• Basic anatomical systems
• Medical Terminology
• Health data classification
• Health information law and ethics
• Informatics Module, and
• Completed 2 on the job placements

Armed with technical working knowledge and aided by professional instructors who have years of industry experience, Jordan set to work completing her research assignment (and commencing her program).

All of that hard work paid off! Jordan’s paper titled, “titled “E-Prescribing: An Important Part of Medication Safety” was accepted for presentation by the Selection Committee at Med-e-Tel 2017, taking place on April 5-7, 2017 at the Luxexpo Exhibition and Congress Center in Luxembourg.

Jordan is, quite understandably, very happy at this news; “Thank you all so much. Chandrika and Sandra both did an amazing job in helping me … I feel very honored to represent the school for this presentation.”

Congratulations Jordan on a job very well done! We are and proud to have her as a student and wish her all the best with this endeavour and all future projects.
