2 Part 1: System Components The health information system needed in the surgical department of the hospital is a complicated standardization of various specific systems sharing data with the patient record. The (This?) paper will focus on systems that are used by the surgical department of the hospital as they perform their routine work and that can act as the resource of information for specific aspects of the health information system. The goals for upgrading the information system for the surgical department are to allow for (enable?) case scheduling, supply ordering, and cost-per-case analysis. The updating of the information system will provide the functionalities such as average time for each procedure, costs for each surgeon, ease of case scheduling, sharing of patient information, and timely ordering (of supplies?) the supply to make sure that needed supplies are at hand. Client Registration System Component- ADT A critical component of any health information system (HIS) is a system for client registration. These systems facilitate the protected sharing of patient information. An example of patient information sharing is from the admission’s department to the physician’s office. Such systems are often referred to as an admission/discharge/transfer (ADT) systems and were some of the first systems to be automated in healthcare. According to Newman (2016), it describes the functions as “ ADT is a critical part of the entire organization’s system because this is where the key information and status of all patients is managed. The module covers the hospital registration functions” (para. 19). Uses of ADT System Component ADT applications are considered the backbone of healthcare system operations as they collect, store, and then share critical client identification and demographic data that other systems

3 rely upon (Mastrian & McGonigle, 2016). Examples of some of the critical data that ADT systems collect are patient demographics, such as name, age, gender, home address, and contact information. The ADT system integrates with the main electronic medical record (EMR) and also maintain the patient’s record number with all the patient’s information that can be shared and utilized by other systems. Possible Interface Issues An interface program is “computer program that tells two different systems how to exchange data” (Hebda & Czar, 2009, p. 274). The central function of ADT systems is to share patient information to other systems, which makes interface programs of critical importance. As with any system component, there are possible interface issues that must be identified and prevented. Several interface issues that an ADT system specifically might face include inability to communicate with other vendor systems, lack of customization of vendor products, difficulty

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
