Key Issues Linked to Systems Development in Businesses

There are various concerns that should be well thought before the approval of the IT implementation in the IT management. These are related to the feasibility, design and analytical aspects of the business administration and these important elements must be fashioned according to the possible meaning it should be realistic, feasible and sustainable for present and future needs of the organization as well as within the finances of the business.

A business management considering the overture of IT, one must have self-assessment to test if they are ready for it, like the following:

Their questions lie to whether they can see their organization as an IT-guided culture. To review if the organization has undergone change management before hand to see if the clinicians will again be open to changes. They have to investigate whether their clinicians are involved in that process and if they are apt to work with it too, or whether the hospital can readily adopt technology or is more reluctant due to probable stress for the clinicians that might be created due to the organizational change.


Furthermore, they have to decide whether information technology should be considered as a strategic asset, distinguish and classify various business and clinical strategic opportunities that have the most potential impact in clinical IT. They also have to figure out if their expectations in bringing the “systems up” are realistic when it comes to the amount of work and timelines it would require and whether these technology infrastructures and resources provide effective deployment of clinical systems instead of being a hindrance to it.

And lastly, once they have decided to pursue this change, they have to draw what their I.T. vendor should offer in key areas such as support, service and new technology delivery for them to be comfortable with it.

The deficiency of the interoperability on various healthcare information systems is also the main problem in healthcare informatics. Interoperability meaning the ability of various Information Technology systems and software applications to correspond to each other, to correctly, efficiently and constantly exchange data,  and utilize those data that have been exchanged. It is a fact that the data passed between software applications, or for instance interoperability of Electronic Healthcare Records (EHRs), and interoperability of patient “classificators”, coding of terms, the clinical standards and its operational procedures and business practices in eHealth domain are deeply probed and questioned.


They should also be aware of the possible medical error and reduce it as well as the implementation of patient care information systems (PCISs) as a way to achieve that. This had been an international issue in most IT-related business investment management. As researchers carry out different studies in the United States, Netherland, and Australia, using Systems Development Theory to looking into the application of PCIs, the instigators have come upon numerous occasions in which the PCIS systems appears to have cultivated errors rather than eliminate or at least reduce the probability. They have illustrated miscalculations that are taciturn and interpreted the nature of the said inaccuracies. These inaccuracies fall into two kinds of miscalculation: those who are in the information entering and retrieving procedure, and those who are in the transmission and synchronization process that the PCIS system software is designed to sustain and maintain. Hence, when the awareness of these issues is sensitive, the IT informers can teach, design their systems, implement and conduct further research on this topic to eliminate the inadvertent end results of these slight and unforthcoming miscalculations. Through this better perception and appreciation of the accomplishment and boundaries of the IT systems on business management that was very much required to further its expansion and the knowledge can be enthused.

  1. With regards to this, I think that systems analysis is vital in determining what a business”s needs are, as well as how they can be met, who will be responsible for individual pieces of the project, and what sort of timeline should be expected.
