Descriptive Statistics in the Health Industry

Paper details

You have been recently hired as an Epidemiological Research Assistant at Duval County Health Department in Florida. It is only day 1 on the job and you have been asked to develop a presentation for the Duval County Commissioners describing the health disparity of Childhood Obesity within your community.

In your report, you are asked to summarize the demographic information about the population, as well as summarize Childhood Obesity. The Duval County Commissioners ask that you present your findings in a PowerPoint® presentation.

In statistics or epidemiology, when you are asked to summarize an issue, this means that you must do so by using quantitative information. For this Assignment, please summarize by using only descriptive statistics. In order to procure this information, you will need to access databases supported by Florida’s Public Health Department, CDC, CMS, etc.


Throughout your presentation, you must appropriately evaluate the effectiveness of descriptive statistics in summarizing the demographics of the population and the health disparity. Provide contextual information where appropriate.


  • Presentation is 10–12 slides in length.
  • Include detailed speaker’s notes with each slide (25 to 50 words). The majority of the speaker’s notes should be in your own words.
  • The slides appear uncluttered.
  • Visual representations of data are used to summarize descriptive statistics of demographic information.
  • Visual representations of data are used to summarize descriptive statistics of the health disparity.
  • Descriptive statistics are evaluated for effectiveness. Contextual information is provided.

Home Health Agency Startup

Paper details

Imagine that you are the administrator of a home health care agency. It is a startup venture, with fewer than 20 clients, and so you must decide whether to use a paper-based system or implement an EHR system, then conduct a cost/benefit analysis of implementing an electronic system versus using a paper-based system.

You might want to consider whether providers will document using EHRs in clients’ homes or carry paper charts. Patient privacy and billing are also important considerations. Discuss the problems that may arise in the future as a result of unwillingness to adopt the electronic health record as well as how changes to medical care can impact record keeping. Your cost/benefit analysis will include a comparison representing both the choice to adopt the electronic health records and as the choice to use paper records. Explain the pros and cons for each and its impact on its revenue stream.

Create a PowerPoint presentation.

  • Presentation should be 10-12 slides in length.
