  • Identify policy mandates and requirements and reflect      on how informatics and EHR implementation affect your ability to meet      those policy mandates and requirements.
  • Identify other mandates (e.g., quality, safety,      requirement of reporting) and reflect on how they may affect issues you      identified.
