The two healthcare information systems that I have chosen are:

  • Subject and tasked based systems
    • Are the systems that harbor the EHR/EMR
  • Operational and Tactical systems
    • Systems used for easy classification of information

These systems are similar in a few ways. Those ways are managing patient information and filing it. Both systems have a systematic approach with their filing if it is electronically. They are able to sort it in which way they want by patient or by date of birth.

These systems also have their differences in how they are managed. Subject and tasked based systems mainly deal with patient information. They have specific ways to harbor that information within the individual record. These systems will be used more for the patient care side of the house. The next system is the operational and tactical systems. This system can help finding different things such as medications in a group to diseases.

I think the internet sites could be helpful more so for information purposes. If you really want to know about the systems I think it would be best for the organization to have a few members either visit a site with the system in place or perhaps if they could do some sort of trial would be the best bet. The sites could definitely be useful to get basic information and possibly to set up visits with the companies.

Mend by Tend and PatientClick are telemedicine information systems that can be used in multispecialty physician groups and independent medical offices. Identical key features among them are web based platforms compatible with IOS and Android operating systems, they both offer appointment scheduling and reminders, practice management capabilities and are both HIPAA compliant. According to Caterra, user reviews between the two are similar in areas of overall value receiving 4 out of a  5 star rating and the systems monetary value is great, both receiving another 4 out of 5 stars.  

The respective webpages are a good resource to start a search for an information system but it should not be the only resource used when choosing a vendor. A Request For Information (RFI) is an essential tool during the planning phrase of the SDLC. The RFI will formally, in written, introduce the vendor’s products and all their capabilities. The organization should be well informed of the vendor’s products by having a clear description of the products’ purposes, uses, and any key information specific to the organization’s needs. Next, and depended upon the information in the RFI, the organization should draft a Request For Proposal (RFP) to at least two different vendors. The RFP will outline the organizations specific needs and should define which products the feel will meet those needs. Finally in this planning phrase, a Request For Tender (RFT) should be sent to the vendor to request the dollar amount for the specifics outlined in the RFP.

These steps represent a well-defined proposal to present to the Board of Directors and CEO of a hospital system for approving a new IS. Additional, this information is needed during the contract negotiation phrase.
