      • Introduction
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Issues in Departmental Information Systems (1)
      • Systems are procured without proper regard for information requirements.
      • Key systems components are not procured.
      • Systems components are not used (e.g., mgmt reporting).
      • Staff are not fully trained and are unable to use components.
      • Staff defeat system capabilities (e.g., batch entry of events).
      • Implemented capabilities not used.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Issues in Departmental Information Systems (2)
      • Work processes are not adequately supported by the system.
        • There is little re-engineering.
      • Functionality acquired with the system is not utilized or taken full advantage of.
      • The manual and paper process often dominates.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Impacts on System Value
      • Needed data not available/usable, cannot be fed upward.
      • Can’t gain full value from system: key components are not available/usable.
      • Data does not represent departmental operation.
      • Quantitative departmental management is not supported by the system.
      • Desired operational improvements are not achieved.
      • Part of the investment in systems is wasted.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Impacts on System Value
      • We need to pay
      • renewed attention
      • to departmental OLTP systems.
    • HIMSS 2001
      • The DIS
      • and the Departmental
      • Management Model
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems The Departmental Management Model (DMM)
      • The DMM: The concepts and methods that comprise management decision-making and intervention:
        • Rules for intervention.
        • Decision logic.
        • Assumptions and givens.
        • Measurements.
        • Monitoring and interpretation of indicators.
        • Indicators of performance.
        • Interventions.
      • Together = framework for mgmt. decision-making .
      • Today, most are only in the head of the manager.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Abstract View: Departmental Mgmt. Framework
      • Executing the Departmental Management Model:
        • Managers observe indicators of performance.
        • Based on these indicators, managers react in ways determined by explicit rules.
      • Requirements:
        • The DIS’s data model must be congruent with the Departmental Management Model.
        • DIS mgmt information modules/system must be rethought/redesigned to conform to dept.’s DMM. Or the DMM rethought to conform to DIS.

    • HIMSS 2001
      • The DIS
      • as the Embodiment of an
      • Operational Model
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems The General Departmental Operational Model
      • Definition: a GDOM is the ensemble of all work processes and the
      • rules/guidelines that operationally manage them.
      • DISs developed in functioning departments (  sites).
        • Functionality created to enable specific tasks at the  site.
      • At  sites, features are enhanced to facilitate the new work processes.
      • Functionality gradually enhanced to support new or variant work processes.
      • At any given stage, a DIS can support a limited set of work processes/variants.
      • Thus each DIS embodies a General Departmental Operational Model (GDOM) that enables the support of a limited set of Specific Departmental Operational Models.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Implications
      • Acquiring an DIS is acquiring a set of ways to operate a department.
        • A given DIS will support certain work processes, and not others.
      • Procuring a new DIS therefore requires a department:
        • To decide how to operate, and choose a DIS that enables this.
        • To determine the work support capabilities of different DISs, and operate as one of them enables.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Implications
      • It’s easy to choose a DIS that generates rather than facilitates work.
        • “ Impedance matching” means aligning the DIS functionality with the departmental workflow.
          • Good impedance matching means power of the DIS goes into supporting work processes.
          • Poor impedance matching means DIS functionality is wasted, or makes it difficult to carry out a task.

    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems More Implications
      • Objective of DIS procurement must be good DIS - work flow impedance matching.
        • At least adjust workflow to take max advantage of the DIS.
      • DIS acquisition = opportunity + time for re-engineering.
        • The DIS is a tool for process + product innovation.
        • Or re-engineering can be rationale for the selection of specific DIS.
        • Either way, a DIS is the vector of functionality that can automate or facilitate work processes.

      • Messages
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Planning Phase Messages
      • Planning a DIS = planning a General Departmental Operational Model = departmental re-engineering = planning procurement: they are inseparable.
        • Requires involvement of a Work Process Task Force.
      • Planning a DIS = planning an optimal Departmental Management Model = defining a data model.
        • Requires an Information Management Task Force.
          • That understands dept. and enterprise management models, data requirements, + DIS IM support capabilities.
        • Note: Much of what used to be done “upstairs” needs to be
        • done within the department and in real time.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Procurement Phase Messages
      • Procurement team must include the Task Forces.
      • Department + enterprise information requirements must be satisfied by a candidate vendor.
      • The impedance match of the DIS with the desired operational model is central to the procurement.
      • Products lacking in these areas, are not candidates or will require custom enhancement, augmenting systems, or acceptable workarounds.
      • The functionality of the DIS “Management Module” must be rethought.
      • Management must be educated and trained re the DMM.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Implementation Phase Messages
      • Implementing the DIS must be done in parallel with implementing the new work processes.
      • Training staff to adequate levels of skill is essential if the new work processes are to be sustainable.
      • The actual achievement of the desired work processes must be reviewed and adjusted as required.
      • The system must be “informationally” integrated with other enterprise systems.
      • Education and training of management in the use of mgmt support tools is essential.

    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Match-to-Us vs Match-to-Them Procurement
      • The DIS can be the model for process innovation.
        • Understanding the DIS’s General Departmental Operating Model) reveals reveal at least which existing processes can be automated or facilitated, and may suggest some that can be eliminated.
        • Existing or planned work processes that the DIS does not address can become topics for discussion re custom development.
      • Or departments can use their own processes as the standard.
        • Select the DIS with a GDOM that automates or facilitates the desired ideal work processes.
        • This approach suffers from the fact that it is relatively easy to design ideal work processes that are not adequately addressed by the GDOMs of any commercial DIS.
        • Hence the former approach is generally better for all risk-averse organizations.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Product Innovation
      • Definition: Altering the services/deliverables produced.
      • Objective: The conceptualization and delivery of new or enhanced valued products or services.
      • Examples:
        • A Pathology service that provides annotated images.
        • A diagnostic imaging dept. that provides remote diagnosis.
        • A Pharmacy provides better mgmt info to enterprise.
      • The DIS is also a tool for product innovation:
      • We must select the DIS with the GDOM and the GMM that will enable the desired products.
    • An Innovative View of Departmental Information Systems Conclusions
      • The data requirements of the entire enterprise must be considered in planning and procuring a DIS.
        • Enterprise stakeholders must be on the planning and procurement team(s).
        • The selection criteria must include their data requirements.
      • The ability to correlate the planning, procurement, and implementation of a DIS with departmental re-engineering efforts is central.
        • This may motivate the creation of an administrative portfolio that combines at least IT/IM and re-engineering.
      • Because the DIS is a tool for the quantitative management of the department, the acquisition and implementation of management modules is non-optional and training in their use is essential.
