Technical Paper: Programming for the Health Care Industry
Due Week 10 and worth 100 points
It’s common knowledge that using computers in the health care industry can improve the quality and effectiveness of care while reducing costs. However, the adoption of computerized clinical information systems in health care lags behind the use of computers in most other sectors of the economy.
For additional information about health care data, tools, and publications, visit the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHCPR) Website at http://www.ahrq.gov/research/index.html. (Note: The use of this Website is not required for your assignment.)
Write a five to seven (5-7) page paper in which you:
Explain the key benefits that object-oriented programming could afford the health care industry.
Provide at least one (1) example that demonstrates the primary manner in which the health care industry could implement control structures (i.e., selection and repetition). (Note: Each example must be approximately one  page in length.)
Provide at least one (1) example that demonstrates the key manner in which the health care industry could implement functions. (Note: Each example must be approximately one  page in length.)
Provide at least one (1) example that demonstrates the primary manner in which the health care industry could implement arrays and records (structs). (Note: Each example must be approximately one  page in length.)
Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment.Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
Design and implement classes that solve programming problems.
Discuss how to declare, initialize, and use record structures.
Use technology and information resources to research issues in C++ programming.
Write clearly and concisely about introductory C++ programming topics using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions.
