Healthcare Domain References

This document contains essential comprehensive references for healthcare information technology professionals. As there is sea of information available, these references are focused on existing functional standards required for Global Hospital Information System. These references are useful to software professional to obtain right information regarding healthcare standards and healthcare processes during software development. Knowledge is the full utilization of information and data, coupled with the potential of people's skills, competencies, ideas, intuitions, commitments and motivations. In today's economy, knowledge is people, money, leverage, learning, flexibility, power, and competitive advantage. Knowledge is more relevant to sustained business than capital, labor or land. Importance of domain knowledge: 1) To enhance decisions, services and products through adding intelligence, increasing value and providing flexibility. 2) To implement initiatives such as total quality management (TQM), business process re-engineering (BPR) 3) Create learning organization to sustain competitive position in market. Why we need domain Knowledge? Software development is a collaborative process that needs to bring together domain expertise with technology expertise and process knowledge. To serve customers well and remain in business companies must: A. Reduce their product delivery cycle B. Operate with minimum fixed assets and overhead (people, inventory and facilities) C. Shorten product development time D. Improve customer service E. Empower employees F. Innovate and deliver high quality products G. Enhance flexibility and adoption
