Business and User Requirements Document Draft (Course Project Part 1)
THIS a POWER POINT not a Paper.
PROJECT TIP: This project has many parts to it and you will want to be sure you address all of the pieces to get full points once you are completely done. To do this, it will be helpful to place each part of the project under a specific heading. See the RUBRIC below, as it gives you very specific instructions on what to do for each part, including what to name the heading, and this will help you set up your project correctly for success.
To prepare for a huge EHRS implementation, a facility must first understand who the EHRS will serve, where information that flows into the system comes from and who the primary users of the system will be after it is deployed at the facility. Part 1 of the Course Project will complete each of these to support the facility executive team as they assemble an EHRS development team.
Review the course project description on the Module 01 Course Project – Introduction page in order to understand the overall needs of the organization and the specific business processes that the project will address. In response to the needs of the organization, prepare a professional PowerPoint Presentation for the Executive Committee which will evaluate data needs for the organization so that an EHRS Development Team can be assembled. Refer to the Good Apples Group Case document in Module 1 and pay particular attention to 1) Clinical Decision Making and 2) Target Organizational Units found in that document.
Your PowerPoint must include at least one slide to present each bulleted item below to the facility executive team. Be sure to logically title each slide in your presentation.
- List the primary sources/areas/departments within the organization which can be used to identify and gather user requirements. Show your understanding of the departments that are in a typical hospital; be specific and include a variety.
- List and briefly explain what departments that will be most impacted by an EHR system implementation and remember to include the Information Systems Department.
- List the methods that you would use to develop a comprehensive list of user requirements for the project. (Conduct research on the web or in our library on effectively using information gathering techniques such as structured interviews, focus groups, and surveys, in order to effectively address this section.)
- List at least 6 requirements that must be met in order for this project to address the needs expressed in the Good Apples Case document found in the project overview. Requirements should be specific to an EHR system development. Remember that a requirement is not the same as a general “goal.”
