What are the major steps in the conceptualization stage of health services research?

Theme#1: Defined by the UMUC:
A literature review is a survey of the scholarly work in a particular subject area.  Use scholarly, peer reviewed, or refereed journals in your research. How do I know what a scholarly source is?  Review this UMUC link for clarification:  https://www.umuc.edu/library/libhow/scholarlyjournals.cfm
Defined by the UNC-Chapel Hill:
A literature review discusses published information in a particular subject area, and sometimes information in a particular subject area within a certain time period (within the past 5-7 years is preferred in our course).  A literature review can be just a simple summary of (scholarly) sources.
Why do we write literature reviews? 
Literature reviews provide you with a handy guide to a particular topic. If you have limited time to conduct research, literature reviews can give you an overview or act as a stepping stone. For professionals, they are useful reports that keep them up to date with what is current in the field. For scholars, the depth and breadth of the literature review emphasizes the credibility of the writer in his or her field. Literature reviews also provide a solid background for a research paper’s investigation. Comprehensive knowledge of the literature of the field is essential to most research papers.

What can health care organizations do to ensure protection of PHI and protect themselves against liability?

HIPAA was created in 1996. While some updates have been made to the law, is it adequate to protect health data in the current electronic age? What can health care organizations do to ensure protection of PHI and protect themselves against liability? Be sure to support your answer with reliable sources.

After completion must respond to 3 classmates. Will send you their answers.

Explain the concept of Protected Health Information (PHI).

Data breaches, be it credit card or medical information, have become commonplace. With so much personal information now available electronically, the protection of private information has become an important issue for health administrators.
You are a hospital administrator, charged with overseeing your hospital’s HIPAA compliance. Due to increased rates of data breaches around the country and a recent decision made by the Connecticut Supreme Court, Bryne v. Avery Center, your supervisor has asked you to prepare a presentation for the hospital board of directors and other stakeholders that will serve as a conversation starter regarding this issue. 
Emily Bryne v. Avery Center for Obstetrics and Gynecology, P.C. (SC 19873) Retrieved from https://jud.ct.gov/external/supapp/Cases/AROcr/CR327/327CR110.pdf
You have been asked to address the following items in a PowerPoint presentation: 

What is the intent and purpose of HIPAA?
Explain the concept of Protected Health Information (PHI).
What impact can the breach of PHI have on patients/consumers?
Explain HIPAA’s allowance for the release of some PHI without consent.
In Byrne v. Avery Center for Obstetrics & Gynecology, P.C., the Connecticut State Supreme Court found that health care organizations could be found liable for the unauthorized release of private health information. While this was a decision in Connecticut, why is this decision relevant for your health organization?
