You do not have to select one of the listed topics. If there is a healthcare information technology topic that you would like to write about that is not listed, let the instructor know. The appropriateness of the topic will be evaluated against the TCO(s) your paper is intended to address.

professor notes : on the outline I did
The topic as stated, is too broad. While you will need the sort of information in this topic paper as background, the goal of your research and writing is to delve deeply enough into one aspect to raise the paper to a graduate-level term paper.
For instance, you might decide that the selection process for an EHR in a particular medical setting interests you the most. Then you can focus your research on that area.
Most paragraphs should contain information you back up by in-text citations, so that it is truly a research paper and not an opinion piece (though your opinion based on such research is an important part.
In APA headers, the short title should be in ALL CAPs on each page. Also, it must be in Times 12 font. Finally, set a right-tab (if it is not already set by default) at the right margin, and TAB over to insert the page# field. In general, do not use the space bar to move text to the right. In typing, use the SPACEBAR only once between words and twice after periods and colons, and no more.
You have extra spacing between paragraphs. Make sure your Paragraph settings in Word are set to zero for “space after and space before” paragraphs.
Your reference paget would be perfect were it not for the three line spaces above the heading. In general, use the ENTER key in typing only at the end of a paragraph, and then once only. Insert a page break to get to the top of a new page, such as after the title page or before the reference page.
