In the need to address communication barriers and reduce CVD through the implementations of future public health policies with the help of various stakeholders in making permanent social changes (Minkler, & Wallerstein, 2008). Health Assessment Questions Question 1: What social changes are you trying to achieve from the dataset proposed in your premise?

Question 3: Will your dataset help address or explain the main frustrations with the health care system in treating DHOH people with CVD-related diseases?
The perplexity of EBP is that the data can come from research, clinical experience, patients, or local context and environment (Rycroft-Malone, et al., 2012). Because of the complexities of driving research in the healthcare field, different models were developed with different healthcare agendas in mind. Two models are of importance in the educational field of healthcare. The Academic Center for Evidence-Based Practice (ACE) the star model of knowledge transformation is applicable
One example of a challenge with health information exchange is sustaining the health information exchange without government help (Markus, Matthews, & Tripathi, 2014). There is always the question of who should pay for what and how much. Another challenge is determining which governing structure should be used.

What are the most important issues your field is facing today? In medicine, when is the line between helping save lives cross over into play God? As medicine branches into other disciplines such as engineering, the question of ethics still remains. A main component of biomedical engineering is building and designing new tools to better the lives of patients, such as prosthetic limbs, tissue engineering, and the emerging frontier of genetic engineering; along with traditional medicine, one of the most prominent issue facing biomedical engineering is whether it should be used to just treat diseases but also enhance the lives of patients. As stated before the ethical issue of biomedical engineering can be defined as treatment versus enhancement.
One of the barriers mentioned in Healthy Americans is educating providers about the new change and working with them to develop referral relationships with new providers/programs. I believe this is a barrier due to there not being a structured process to ensure that referrals to community based prevention services have been deliver and the outcomes of those services.

This will create awareness and streamline issues of referring for the wrong program or not knowing what is out there.
Health care organizations and policy makers will need to embrace new norms and make substantial changes in their culture, processes, and structure (Barry & Edgman-Levitan, 2012). This can only be done through support from senior management and nursing leaders (Carman et al., 2012). In turn, nurses would be able to cater care to their patients.

Nurses need to encourage confidence for patients to become more involved in their care, especially during medical rounds, updates and allow them not to be coerced into their treatment by giving holistic information to make an informed decisions.
