Fall 2018 Project

Fall 2018 Project – Issues in Health Care (HAN-364-04)
Introduction to Project: You are invited to participate in the role as consultants to select a vendor
solution for an organization. In this role you will present your team as a professional organization and
not a group of students. All of your project deliverables, including your presentation should represent
your group as professional consultants.
Your team will be responsible for selecting an electronic solution to replace a paper process in a hospital
or primary care practice. The facility does not have computer software or hardware for clinical
documentation. You will apply the steps of the systems development life cycle to complete project
deliverables or assignments. You will develop your own budget, but it MUST be practical. Your budget
will include purchasing hardware for your electronic solution, the cost of your vendor solution and your
consultant services. You will select the facility that you will implement the solution for by searching the
internet for a hospital or private practice. You will collect background information about the private
practice and use that information to select a system for your organization. The background information
should be included in your project deliverables and presentation. ALL groups/teams are required to
work together.
Evaluation/Group Grade: Each group member will evaluate each member of the team at the end of the
semester. The evaluations will be used by the instructor to determine if all group member participated
in group assignments. Students that do not participate will not receive the same letter grade as the
group. The grading scale for this project is included in this document on the last page (#3).
