# Project #17610 - Healthcare Statistics and Research

As your recently hired employees are becoming more familiar with the various statistics studied in the health care setting, you decide you want to ensure they have a basic understanding of where health care statistics come from and the mathematical principles involved in calculating statistics. You also want to give your employees the task of computing some information and reviewing reports to check for accuracy.

• Identify and discuss at least 2 specific sources of health care statistics. These sources can be examples of either primary or secondary data sources.
• Prepare a memo that briefly defines, discusses, and educates your employees on the following topics:
• Rounding Numbers
• Percentage
• Averages
• At the end of your memo, include 2 separate reports (see below). For purposes of this assignment, you can copy and paste the reports into your memo, include the correct information in Report A, and highlight the incorrect information in Report B.
• For Report A, illustrate to your employees how you calculate to get the correct average number of patients discharged during the two weeks identified. Complete the report by filling in the total number of patient discharges for each week and the average number of patient discharges for each week. Round the average to a whole number.
• For Report B, identify the 6 errors regarding the percentages in the Coder Accuracy Report.
