5. SWOT Analysis



A SWOT analysis is used in everyday business and health care facilities as part of strategic management. It allows teams to see the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats of a project or problem. In this presentation we would like you to contribute to a SWOT analysis to help with the ethical dilemma of remote access to EHR. Using the ethical principles of beneficence and fidelity to guide you, please post some strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to remote access of EHR. Please include your name when posting your ideas.  We will collate and post the summary towards the end of the week.
