IM/IT governance and decision rights consist of helping the organization make a wise business decision more accurately and in a timelier manner. IM/IT operations help expand information technology to be used effectively that helps support the strategic priorities of the organization. In addition, high priorities are a result in strategic IM/IT planning. To address chapter 3 in a more detail explanation I will explain and discuss these following questions:
• Give five different examples of simple systems and include the input(s), conversion process, and output(s)? Ensure that there is some feedback between your examples.
• Why do closed systems eventually die, while open systems may continue to be upgraded and modified?
• Find examples of the use of cybernetic systems in healthcare, other than the examples provided.
• Find two RHIOs currently in existence. Provide an overview of each RHIO and then determine the differences between them.
• What governance challenges do RHIOs pose for healthcare organizations in general and specifically for healthcare IM/IT?
Give five different examples of simple systems and include the input(s), conversion process, and output(s)? Ensure that there is some feedback between your examples.
When describing simple systems you are describing systems that are easily done with the department. Within the medical field thee five systems I’m about to describe and explain are everyday simple systems being used throughout healthcare. First you have medical coding for dentistry, its output would be coding based on full mouth debridement and having a series of coding set up on patient’s dental conditions. The conversion is having the codes set up for each patient’s full mouth debridement. The output is to help the dentist when writing down the patient dental history to be converted for the dental assistant to put in the system. Second, we have medical billing for emergency care; its output is the process of collecting payment of service that’s been rendered. The conversion is the tracking of invoices by payments when that is due and sending letters off when payments are due or overdue. The output is mailing out statements to patients when payments have been received or process or still waiting for payments. Third, patients scheduling, the input would be storing data of the patient (appointment time, name, reason). The conversion is collecting additional information from patients. The output is receiving services based on patients needs. Fourth, we have call center/urgent care, your input is receiving and transmitting a large volume of request by phone. Your conversion is setting up a request according to its importance. The output would be the scheduling the patients to be cared for by physician, dentist, or nurse. Lastly the fifth simple system if filling medical records. Your input is systems needed for patients records. Your conversion is setting up records by patient’s last name. The output is being able to get to patients records easily without any hassle.
Why do closed systems eventually die, while open systems may continue to be upgraded and modified?
Systems are entity with a boundary which is not closed, which received inputs and produces outputs. It changes its behavior in response to its conditions outside of its boundaries. A open system may continue to upgrade and modify is because the components of its system helps exchange materials, energies, and information with their environment, in addition, it influences and are influenced by its environment in which it helps operate. As for closed systems they die because it is self contained and are not influenced by external events like open systems are. Close systems also contains limited energies than open systems. Open systems also can easily interact with other systems outside its environment unlike closed...
