• Integration of HeartSmart Kids into Clinical Practice: A Quality Improvement Project

      Lang, Sara (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2016-04-01)
      In 2009, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS), established “Meaningful Use” regulations through an incentive program, as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Gance-Cleveland, Gilbert, Gilbert, Dandreaux, & Russell, 2014). Meaningful Use (MU) is tied to reimbursement and focuses on how the Electronic Health Record (EHR) is being used (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 2012). The goal of MU is to transform the use of the EHR from a documentation tool, to a data reservoir which allows for meaningful reviews and interpretations of the quality of care (Gance-Cleveland et al, 2014).
    • Internal Audit of Juland Incorporated's ISO 9001 Management System

      Giedt, Susan H. (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2016-05-01)
      ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized quality management standard. The central component of this standard is a robust quality management system that provides a solid framework for organizations to create and maintain quality management within their processes and procedures. Many organizations elect to have their quality management system certified by an independent certification body. Certification has become an important discriminator to organizations when selecting potential suppliers. Existing research of the ISO 9001 quality management system suggests a relationship between the presence of a certified quality management system and improved operations, business practices, cost savings, and customer service. Juland Incorporated, an Alaskan based arctic logistics company, operates with an ISO 9001 based quality management system and this report examines the internal audit process, focusing on potential contributions to the Project Management Body of Knowledge. The report also includes a case study examining the business impact of Juland Incorporated’s decision to not pursue certification of the company’s quality management system.

    • The Interrelationship between Alaska State Law and the Social Systems of Modern Eskimo Villages in Alaska: History, Present and Future Considerations

      Conn, Stephen (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 1985-08)
      Yup'ik and Inupiat villages in Alaska (the territory and the state) experienced a process of legal socialization that was strongly influenced by serious constraints in the allocation of resources. These constraints resulted in legal socialization into what was in essence a second legal state system and provided an opportunity for cultural autonomy by Eskimo villages, even though this de facto situation did not recognize these groups as sovereign tribes. The actual implementation of a single full-blown legal system in village Alaska in the mid-1970s has resulted in a loss of control and serious efforts by Alaska villages to reinstitute village law ways as tribal legal process.
