Question Description

You work for a hospital in the registration and admissions department, and most of your tasks are performed manually. For example, when an individual checks in, you must obtain personal information, details on an individual’s medical background, and hospitalization insurance. You are a strong advocate for information technology and have proposed to IT management that information systems would be beneficial. The hospital has decided to develop and implement an information system that helps to streamline your processes. Since you have extended personal experience with the processes, and you have considerable knowledge of information systems and technology employed by your counterparts at other hospitals, you have been asked to function as the project business analyst. You will work very closely with the IT department’s system analyst. The system analyst has questions regarding the following:

  • What specifically do you do to complete your tasks?
  • What are your thoughts about how technology might improve your processes?
  • What are the challenges and obstacles that would be overcome with the use of an information system?
  • What are your thoughts about the type of information system that might be employed at your hospital?
  • Based on your understanding, what components would be required to implement the information system? For example, would you need any special hardware or software?

In a 3–5-page Word document, be sure to include the following.

  • Summarized list of tasks, or processes, to register and to check in a patient.
  • Benefits of using an information system in support of your day-to-day tasks.
  • Specifics regarding how the information system would help to overcome the present challenges and obstacles.
  • The specific type of information system you recommend (support your recommendation).
  • An outline of all components you see as necessary to implement your recommended information system.
  • Explain how the new information system would help your organization to reduce the overall cost of health care and to improve the profitability of your hospital.

Make sure your paper is written in the APA style. You should back up your opinions and assertions with authoritative sources, which should also be attributed.

Benefits of Information Systems in Health Care
Information technology can be defined as the use of computer systems to store, retrieve
and to process information. Technology has become part of today’s society. Our day to day
activities involves the utilisation of technology. Many aspects of our lives have greatly been
influenced by technology. It is amazing how technology has changed human labour. Technology
can help us accomplish tasks in the shortest time possible. For example, Data input, processing
of data, organizing of data and storage of data has been made easier and fast by technology,
(Berg 2001). This influence of information technology has not left the practice of medicine out.
Technology has greatly influenced this field.
Completing tasks without the use of technology
I use books to write and store information of every patient that comes in here. Patients
sometimes are many and each one of them has to be served. They come one after the other, their
details have to be recorded. If the patient already has a medical record here, I will have to take all
the files from the date he or she was here for me to retrieve the information. The input of the
data, storage, retrieving and processing it to other departments is a challenge. The manual work
is done in a day or two days can be done in a few hours by introducing information technology in
this hospital.
My thoughts and Benefits of information system
Data processing will be made easier and fast. Using technology to retrieve the patient’s
information will be easier and fast to clarify. The level of my work efficiency will be greatly



improved. Some patients need quick medical care which is sometimes delayed when processing
their information manually; it puts their health at greater risk while waiting for their medical data
to be processed. Introduction of this technology would mean the use of less time to do my job
which translates to proper and fast medical attention will be given to our patients, (Berg 2001)....
