Healthcare systems


Thehealth care system has to be designed to be efficient in all meanspossible. Efficiency is a paramount aspect for every health caresystem. However, flaws may crop up in the system which would in turnaffect the health care system’s efficiency. In the world today, IThas been applauded due to its potential in enhancing efficiency inthe health care systems. Many design flows of the contemporary healthcare systems are computerized. Despite the numerous advantages ofusing them, complication in controlling the modern machines hascreated a significant flaw in the health care system. Not all medicalpractitioners have the knowledge of using the modern health machines(Colling &amp York, 2009).

Thisflaw appears in a scenario where a medical practitioner opts to writepatient’s vital information on a piece of paper rather thanentering them in EHR. This takes place if the individual responsiblefor entering that data was not available. This flaw is very dangerousin that the information in the computer system will not be completethus inconsistency taking place. This would put the life of a patientinto a great risk. The flaw can, however, be prevented by takingmedical practitioners to on job training so as to familiarize inusing all the machines in the health care system (Kongstvedt, 2013).


Buildingof a health care application is a process where a health care systeminitiates a particular mode of operating. In other words, it designsa strategy of delivering to its customers. The health care system’sdesign specifications are liable to various constraints. If theconstraints are well managed, they furnish the health care systemwith numerous advantages. Design specifications are responsible forproviding the essential details of the design. One of the possibleconstraints is provision of high profile standards in the health caresystem. This will act as a disturbance to the practitioners sincethey will be forced to upgrade their standards to meet the setstandards. However, the specification will affect the design in thatthe medical practitioners’ standards will be upgraded. This will inreturn help the patients to get improved services (Wolper, 2011).

Thereis also a great possibility an abrupt change constraint occurrence asa result of the design specifications. The health care system mightbe forced to be transformed with immediate effect so as the design tobe effective. Men are resistant to change however, this constraintcan help in improving service delivery to the patients by the medicalpractitioners. There might also erupt operation’s constraints.This is due to a collision between the system’s infrastructure andstructures in existence and the design’s specifications. This mightimprove the cost effect of the organization and also help inimproving customer’s service (Colling &amp York, 2009).


Securityin health care system is very essential. There are two chief elementsthat are required when designing the health care systems. Theseelements are quality of care and the cost control. In the worldtoday, the health care environment needs to enhance protection ofstaff, patients, information as well as well as facilities. Thesecurity also needs to ensure that patients are well taken care of,to ensure compliance, as well as operation efficiency. Violation ofthese specifications will in one way or the other affect the qualityof care provided by that system or make the system incur some losses(Wolper, 2011).

Ahealth organization can be sure of including the right securityelements in particular systems it is developing through variousmeans. One of them is by testing the system’s effectiveness incontrolling cost of the organization. If it is helping theorganization in that aspect, it is worth implementation. Theorganization can also research on the system with the potential ofenhancing quality care. This is through safeguarding theorganization’s vital details from being accessed by a third partyas well as making the work environment conducive (Kongstvedt, 2013).
