Rationale 2: From a health information technology perspective, health care research has been impeded by all of
these except a rapid adoption of data exchange standards. Slow adoption of data exchange standards and uniform
languages, a failure to realize a birth-to-death electronic health record, limited interoperability, limited health
information exchange, concerns over the confidentiality of private health information, and limited funding all
hinder research. Many technical issues also still need to be resolved.

Question 12
Type: MCSA
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) requires health care providers and insurers to
obtain additional documentation from researchers related to assurances of patient safety and confidentiality.
Which of the following is the key concern about human subjects in health care research?
1. That all subjects are protected from the researcher getting access to their confidential information before
disclosing their health information
2. That authorization is still required even if an institutional review board grants a waiver or alteration of
authorization requirements
3. That authorization is still required even if information has been de-identified according to Privacy Rule
standards

4. That one signed authorization form for research is valid for a current research study and covers any future
research projects
Question 13
Type: MCMA
Constant changes in health care and its delivery creates challenges for clinicians to keep abreast of the latest
evidence-based practice (EBP) findings and recommendations. What can health care professionals do in order to
narrow the time in synthesizing research from the "bench" to the client's "bedside"?

appropriate materials to personally engage in EBP.
2. Nurses who entered practice less than two years earlier were least comfortable with providing EBP patient care.
3. Nurses who entered practice five or more years earlier were most comfortable with providing EBP patient care.
4. Nurses lacked access to appropriate materials to personally engage in EBP.

Clinical researchers have experienced barriers due to HIPPA. These researchers need to be aware of HIPAA's
Privacy Rule because it establishes the conditions under which covered entities can use or disclose PHI. Which of

or engage in any of the electronic transactions covered under HIPAA.
2. Researchers are always considered to be covered entities for transactions covered under HIPAA so long as they
are conducting a valid study.
3. When difficulties arise with small sample size, covered entities are not allowed to disclose PHI to researchers to
aid in study recruitment.
4. Covered entities do not include providers that transmit health information electronically for HIPAA
transactions, health plans, and clearinghouses unless they are certified via a national examination.
