Project Management concept and benefits

As per the requirement of the clinic’s business process, I would prefer Object-Oriented Planning (OOP). The purpose of using this method is that it provides separate variables to different classes of objects which are needed to be implemented in any system. The pros of using OOP is that we can do parallel working on a different class of modules. It is also very easy to understand the coding under this method. The major cons of this method are that it creates duplicate data.

  1. Post Implementation PlanCapstone Case: New Century Wellness GroupChapter 1 Task 1:As per the background given in Task 1, It is stated that New Century Wellness Group is a Medical care clinic, and its primary objective is to provide preventive medical facilities and medicines as well as traditional medical care through their holistic approach. It also stated that the clinic has a patient base of 8000 persons and also having associated staff, which includes four primary care physicians, one nurse practitioner, four physical therapists, one registered nutritionist, eight nurses, and eight people in support staff. As per the information given in the task below is the organizational chart as required: 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The figure above has shown all the Departments along with responsible persons.

    Chapter 1 Task 2:

    The following are the six key business processes with the names of the responsible person, data, and information required for the same:s

    S.no. Business Process Responsible Person Required Data and Information
    1 Accounts Receivables Tom Capaletti ·         Total Number of Patients visited the clinic.

    ·         Total number of Bills Generated

    ·         Total Bills Outstanding to pay by patients out of bills generated.

    2 Insurance Billing & Processing Tammy Alipio ·         Total Number of Patients visited opted for the insurance claim.

    ·         Documents Regarding insurance policies.

    ·         Total amounts eligible for the Insurance claim.

    3 Payroll & Taxation Corinne Summers ·         Total Number of Employees Whether Permanent or on Contract.

    ·         Total Number of hours or days worked.

    ·         Salary of Every Employee.

    ·         Preparation of Statement of profitability of the clinic.

    4 Human Resources Fred Brown ·         Data which has generated by the Payroll department.

    ·         Employee benefits as per their categories.

    ·         Recruitment process of every employee.

    ·         Salary negotiation with employees.

    5 Appointments Lisa Sung ·         Manage the schedule of every doctor.

    ·         Doctor and patient’s wise maintenance of appointments.

    ·         Resolve the queries of Patients.

    6 Patient Medical Records Susan Gifford ·         Collect medical history from every patient.

    ·         Collect all data from patients.

    ·         Maintain records of every patient whether he or she is insured or not.

     

    Chapter 1 Task 3:

    I would recommend the user productivity system to the New Century to ascertain the quality of services provided by the New Century to the patients. This system enables the patients to access the records online through their systems or smartphones.  The scheduling appointments of patients with doctors would be easy with the use of the calendar. This system can integrate itself with the organization due to its cost-effectiveness. The user productivity system has the potential to improve the performance of health practitioners and create transparency between patients and doctors.

    Chapter 1 Task 4:

    As per the requirement of the clinic’s business process, I would prefer Object-Oriented Planning (OOP). The purpose of using this method is that it provides separate variables to different classes of objects which are needed to be implemented in any system. The pros of using OOP is that we can do parallel working on a different class of modules. It is also very easy to understand the coding under this method. The major cons of this method are that it creates duplicate data.

    Chapter -2 Task 1

    Electronic Medical Records (EMR)

    The systematized digitally stored health information of population and patients is called electronic health records. Electronic Medical records permit medical practitioners’ immediate entry of the patient information that can be accessed as per requirement. These records improve the safety, quality of services along with the efficiency of the health care practitioners.

    Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE)

    The computerized process of providers entering and sending treatment instructions – including medication, laboratory orders through software rather than paper, fax, etc. are referred as computerized provider order entry (CPOE). These systems are set to substitute the manual paper-based entry system of hospitals. It provides hospitals to maintain all the records online. These systems provide safety alerts in case of any malicious or unsafe drug is ordered or entered in the record. In short, it has become an essential practice for safe medical practices of the health care organizations and to keep track of the existing activities of healthcare. It provides several benefits to the patients and health care professionals like the reduction of errors and safety.

    Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS)

    This system of information technology is designed to support the clinical decision-making tasks of health care professionals. It involves a variety of interventions and tools to realize the complete benefits of electronic health care records of patients. CDSS also includes pharmacy information systems and laboratory information systems to provide advanced health services to the patients.

     

     

    Task 2

    The steps of preliminary investigation are intended to comprehend the issue or opportunity, determination of the constraint, seeking facts, analysis of the usability, benefit, cost, etc. of the project. Therefore, during the preliminary investigation of Dr. Jones’s clinic I would move forward on the following steps;

    Step 1: Identification of Issues or Opportunities.

    A business profile would be evolved that describes business processes and functions. And to develop deep insight to understand how modifications will affect the operations and information systems of the business. The determination of the business processes, departments, and users involved would be made at this stage of identification.

    Step 2: Define the Project Scope and Constraints

    A constraint is a condition that the system must satisfy to attain project goals within a scheduled duration. At this step, constraints are identified along with the specific boundaries, or extent, of the project. Also, a to-do list would be made with different sections of the activities and their priorities. For example; Should Do, Must Do, Could Do, Don’ts, etc.

    Step 3: Perform Fact-Finding

    Facts would be analyzed with the proper evaluation of data collected through the conduction of the user’s survey. Pareto and XY charts can be used for the determination of variables and their relationship with each other. The use of a survey is a cost-effective and time-saving approach to collect the opinion of people in comparison to interviews

    Step 4: Analyze Project Usability, Cost, Benefit, and Schedule Data

    At this stage, firstly, the information gathered would be analyzed thoroughly with the help of different tools. Secondly, the method and sources of data collection would be decided whether it is through survey, observation, or interview. Also, the cost of analysis of information would be measured along with the techniques of summarization of findings in the reports.

    Step 5: Evaluate Feasibility

    Operational Feasibility would be evaluated with the review of user needs, requirements, and expectations. And a screening of existing problems of system users and their possible solutions. Technical Feasibility will be identified through examination of the hardware, software, and network resources. Technical costs and concerns would be highlighted with the development of the checklist. Then, financial analysis tools will be used for the determination of the economic feasibility of the project. Lastly, timing and completion dates would be examined to ensure the schedule feasibility of the planned project.
