Question Description

This week, you will conduct system selection, which requires completion of the following steps:

  • Reviewing a Request for Proposal (RFP)—this invites selected vendors to submit a proposal to you that outlines details of their proposed information system or systems.
  • Evaluation of the proposed system through on-site demonstration, site visits, reference checks, and making a decision.
  • Contract negotiation.

Assume that your healthcare organization has conducted an RFI, or a fact finding part of the system implementation and helps to select the potential vendors. It has requested information from vendors about their products and services. With the information gathered, the organization has screened the potential vendors and issues the RFP (request for proposal).

Download this RFP for EHR Implementation: UA_RFP-EHR. This is an actual RFP. Review the document and answer the following:

  • Does the RFP expressly state organization and user needs? If so, what are these? If not, why is the RFP failing to do so?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of this RFP?
  • How would you change this document?

To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.

System Selection


When choosing a system to integrate into our company, it is important to select the best
fit for the company so that when the transition is done, it will be a significant step forward an
inspiration to the company. In this report, I will be highlighting the Request for Proposal wrote
for the Star health facility. I will majorly focus on the weaknesses, strength, and finally on where
I would change in the report. It is true that these reports developments are, and this results in the
rise of a question that seeks a whether there is a better way.
The RFP (Request for Proposal) report touches on the requirements of the organization
needs and the needs of the users. In the Star healthcare facility, there are three precise units
within the Star healthcare facility that needs to employ the system wholly and still manage to
interact with already existing system software applications (Cramer, 2011). The current Star
healthcare facility system is Oracle-based, and the most crucial part when it comes to such
system is that every program in all the computers that the organization has ever owned, they all
have an inclusion of Oracle based software (Cramer, 2011).
The three Star healthcare facility units mentioned above are very extensive, and the
services currently offered are described, the patients’ number that can be served by the system,
and the client base. (Cramer, 2011). In the report, the units that need the system are Community
Health Nursing Center, Health Services, and pathology for language, audiology and speech,
(Cramer, 2011, p. 1). Breaking down these exact needs of the proposed system is the most
appropriate way to realize the user needs in the Star healthcare facility units.
Community Health Nursing Center: Within this unit in the Star healthcare facility aims
at providing quality healthcare to the community that is vulnerable to illnesses (Cramer, 2011).
Besides, according Cramer (2011), this unit is mandated to offer clinical teaching to the
community on matters health and the best ways to exercise hygiene. Proper hygiene and best

health exercises will enable most people in the community to stay healthy for long enough
instead of having to visit health facilities every time they feel unease on their bodies. Though
