Health care

Examine how machine learning can be applied in health care. The advent of interoperability and telehealth present the opportunity to apply machine learning to a wide variety of practices and services in health care. Machine learning models use large datasets to help providers diagnose and treat illness and potentially improve the prognosis for the patient. The increased use of machine learning in health care increases the need to protect patient information. Machine learning can be used to protect patient information. You will develop a PowerPoint presentation to establish how machine learning is applied to patient care and the protection of patient information.
Instructions
Prepare a 10–15-slide PowerPoint presentation with detailed scholarly speaker notes in which you:

Establish how concepts of machine learning are applied in health care. Support with examples.
Differentiate how the three types of machine learning—supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and reinforcement learning—could be applied in health care. Support with examples.
Determine three different situations where machine learning could be applied in health care.
Propose how machine learning could be used to protect patient information in three identified situations.
Propose how machine learning could be applied to improve health care delivery for both the patient and the provider in three identified situations.
Use at least three sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the library or review library guides.

• Write a 4 page analysis of a current problem or issue in health care, including a proposed solution and possible ethical implications.
Introduction
In your health care career, you will be confronted with many problems that demand a solution. By using research skills, you can learn what others are doing and saying about similar problems. Then, you can analyze the problem and the people and systems it affects. You can also examine potential solutions and their ramifications. This assessment allows you to practice this approach with a real-world problem.
Instructions

  1. Describe the health care problem or issue you selected for use in Assessment 2 (from the Assessment Topic Areas media piece) and provide details about it.
    o Explore your chosen topic. For this, you should use the first four steps of the Socratic Problem-Solving Approach to aid your critical thinking. This approach was introduced in Assessment 2.
    o Identify possible causes for the problem or issue.

Many provisions of the ACA promote Higher Value Care or value-based reimbursement. An example of these
are the Medicare Shared Savings Programs. Within this type of value-based reimbursement are the MeritBased Incentive Payment System (MIPS), Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP) and the
Hospital Acquired Condition Reduction Program (HACRP). Choose one of these value-based programs for
your paper.
Paper Components and Formatting Guidelines
Formatting and Style: Papers should be submitted as one document, 11-point Arial font, with 1-inch margins,
double-spaced. Submitted papers should be free of spelling or grammar errors, and the paper should be
written in traditional academic APA format.
▪ Title Page: Traditional APA format, all pages numbered, include a running head. Use the following required
Level 1 Headings of (centered, boldface, uppercase and lowercase headings), but feel free to correctly use
Level 2 Headings (and Level 3, if necessary).
▪ You may include information in a table format or figure if that is helpful to you. If used, reference in the body of
the paper but insert after the final reference page.

Health Care

Mr. and Mrs. S are a successful young professional couple. They have two sons: Joshua, who is five years old, and Matthew, who is two. Nine months ago, Joshua was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). He responded well to his initial chemotherapy and quickly went into remission. Last week, however, Josh’s oncologist detected the early signs of a relapse of his leukaemia. Although secondary therapy is available, it involves drugs with significantly higher toxicity and much less certainty of a second remission. The oncologist has also told Mr. and Mrs. S about a research study that requires a bone marrow transplant and a new (experimental) drug that will aid engraftment and deter rejection.

Joshua’s two-year old brother, Matthew, is not a histocompatible donor for the transplant. So the parents consider having another baby, and begin discussions with an endocrinologist who specializes in in vitro fertilization. The specialist explains the procedures for in vitro fertilization and pre-implantation genetic testing. If Mr. and Mrs. S have any incipient doubts about what they are doing, they do not raise them with one another. Their conversations are only about the process – about what is to be done next.

Mrs. S’s eggs are retrieved and impregnated with Mr. S’s sperm. Then, while tests are being made to discern histocompatibility with Joshua, an outspoken friend asks Mrs. S, “Are you having this new baby simply as a means to give Josh a new lease on life?” Mrs. S finds herself unable to answer immediately. “No,” she says finally. “We are going to love this new baby all for herself, and she will be happy knowing that she has helped her older brother.” But that afternoon, when she meets her husband at the clinic, she bursts into tears.

Can Mr. and Mrs. S resolve their conflict? How will they talk to the new baby when she is old enough to ask about the circumstances of her birth? What if Josh responds poorly to the transplant and dies? Will she feel that she contributed to her brother’s death? Under what conditions might this case be the subject of an ethics consult?

Questions for discussion
1. There are such emotional overtones to this case that it might be helpful to use Immanuel Kant’s recommendation: What if everybody performed the action with the same purpose in mind?
What if every child were conceived as a means to prolong the life of other living persons? What would this do to our society and to the self-esteem of children as they progress to maturity?

2. Another approach that helps in emotion-laden actions is to consider the action from a perspective that all would consider acceptable. (List all the reasons this action could be beneficial.)
Then consider the action from a perspective that all would consider perverse. (List all the negatives against the action.)
Compare. Which is the stronger approach?

3. There is a social dimension to being human; there are even stronger social dimensions to being part of a family. What is ethically permitted in this case? What might limit us from doing all that is ethically permitted in this case?

4. How long will Mr. and Mrs. S’s third child be used as a donor for Joshua? Will there be a limit placed on what she will donate (blood, bone marrow, a kidney?)

5. Consider the role played by the physician in this case. Is the goal of medicine to prolong life as long as possible, no matter what means are used? In geriatrics, this is often referred to as “overtreatment,” prolonging life at all costs. Is the same charge relevant here?

6. Or consider the decision of the parents from the perspective of risks/benefits, both on the part of the mother, Joshua, Matthew, and the child-to-be.
