List and describe clinical applications and/or services that will run on your proposed infrastructure
You are an IT Director at a large urban hospital with 500 beds and 4,500 associates. You are a full-service hospital with a typical list of departments to include multiple ICUs, mother & baby, emergency services, radiology, oncology, surgery, etc. You are piloting programs to allow personal mobile devices on the network under pressure from physicians and nurses to either provide the devices or allow personal ones under “bring your own device” (BYOD) solution. In order to protect applications and patient data, you decided to build a dedicated “public” wireless network for all outside devices that are not approved as standard workstations for normal hospital use and circulation. Your network will be publicly accessible and ask users to sign in and electronically sign a user acceptance agreement. Then users will be on a “public” network that can access the Internet and “outside” applications, but will not be allowed on the internal “private” network.
You are expected to:
- Identify all critical elements and technologies necessary to achieve stated goals of your project.
- Describe the resources you will require to achieve your project goals.
- Architect, at a high level, your proposed solution and draw a diagram in a software application of your choice, typically Power Point or Visio.
- List and describe clinical applications and/or services that will run on your proposed infrastructure. In the case of EMR, describe which services will be in the cloud and whether there are any services that will need to be hosted internally and why or why not .
- Identify benefits and risks to business operations and patient care environment, resulting from your proposed solution .
- Briefly describe to senior management why your solution is a good fit and how you will address the risks identified above.
