Unit 7 Assignment Abstract In this paper you will learn about the different specialty system applications for an entire hospital system. This system includes 1800 bed-hospital and 30 community-based clinics throughout the metroplex. We will be making assessments for the following applications: administrative, clinical decision support systems, electronic health record and computer-based health record systems, nursing, ancillary service systems, patient numbering systems.
