1. Have you ever observed a health informatics project in your (other) organization? Please provide a brief introduction.
Our hospital try to move forward to health informatics but support only electronic drug ordering. For the medical record is still on the paper-based system. However, medical records are scanned for later reviews on the hospital computers.
2. Do you think that this health informatics project can help to improve the current practices, how?
Drug ordering can facilitate the workflow and reduce human error in the process. Since our system is still not fully electronic, therefore, paper-based medical records may make some difficulty.
3. Are there any challenges or difficulty in implementing the project?
I don’t know the real reason why we can’t fully transform to health informatics. So I think the software may not support some function at the first place. Therefore, the EA should design to serve all requirements and be able to change or modify during implementing process. If the designed system is so rigid, when a problem occurs then transformation can’t be fully developed.
