Work-Related Project Analysis Part II
When a system program is being implemented into a health care system it is done in phases and those phases are broken down into small phases for manageability. Most organization uses some type of system development life cycle model (SDLC).   The phases start with system research, analysis, designing, testing, maintenance of the system, and continuous upgrades (Satzinger, Jackson, & Burd, 2009). System analysis and design are two of the key areas of concentration to ensure an implementation of any system is done as successful as possible. Analysis is breaking down the complex information requirements into a smaller more understanding components. Analyst then organizes, structure, and documents the problem by building a requirement model. Even though all components of system design depend on each other the configuration of the application architecture drives all other designs. In case of Marshfield Clinic once research was done on an electronic medical record (EMR) and chronic disease management system (CDMS) system the analyst then completed a system architecture design. System architecture is a set of conventions, rules, and standards the computers framework, requirements, specifications, and component (hardware, software, and networks. The challenge is to covert the system requirements into an architecture that will handle the organizational needs.
                                    Use Cases Identified
Integration of health information is critical in today’s fragmented health care system so having information at your fingertips as much as possible is very important to Marshfield Clinic.
Since Marshfield Clinic is a multispeciality clinic having their EMR and CDMS integrated together enable the efficient management of health information in a coordinated manner (Follen, Castaneda, Michkelson, Johnson, Wilson, &...
