Case Study 1

Health Care System

A large government agency is one of your company’s clients; this agency is in need of an enhancement to their current electronic health records (EHR) system. They have requested an integrated patient health records management system titled no “Patient lost”. The new system will be integrated into the existing health records management system and will have the following features set. Patients can be seen anywhere in the country by any doctor of their choice, however, appointments to see specialists can only be made by the current primary care physician office (i.e. the physician, a nurse/administrator in that office). The system will allow any doctor seeing the patient for the first time to access the patient’s existing medical records up until the last visit with a primary care doctor or specialist.

It will track the date and time of each visit, the intent of the visit (why the patient visited the doctor), the outcome of the visit (what the actual medical reasons for the visit was/were), any current medication and dosage, any new prescriptions and dosage, the patient’s allergies and reactions and level of severity of allergic reaction. It will allow for patient’s personal information to be updated (address, Tel #, weight, emergency contact, next of kin). The integrated system will also feature an image processing system (IPS) for uploading the patient’s X-rays, CT scans, etc. by the technician who did the imaging or the specialist who interprets the image. The system will issue an alert to the primary care physician office or the specialist office or the medical health imaging office if there are missing portions of the patient’s records after 24hrs since the patient’s visit.

This alert will require an input of the missing pieces of the record or will request an explanation as to why the some pieces of information are yet to be included, as well as the signature of the personnel responding and their role within the organization where this alert has been received.

  1. Identify the users/roles
  2. Identify use cases
  3. Identify post conditions for any use case you have earlier identified

Case Study 2

Customer Management Application:

A client of HTS online has requested a tutoring appointment and payment tracking system to eliminate the paper work and time wasted on some of their business processes. They have asked for an automated solution on a hand held device that will be capable of tracking tutoring appointments per subject, per student and per instructor. The hand held device should be enabled with features that will allow parents to sign at the beginning and at the end of each session, will allow students to input what was covered during the session, it will also  time stamp the instructor’s arrival to the student’s home. At the time or arrival to the home, parents will select the subject their student is being tutored in before they sign for the beginning of the session. The mobile device will also be equipped with a payment system to accept the monthly Payments for the next month’s hours at the last tutoring session of the preceding month. The device will also allow parents make appointments on the instructor’s device for an emergency tutoring session, sign accepting the appointment and also make advance for the emergency session in on the day the appointment is set. As part of their operating process, each instructor stops by their administrative office to pick up the handheld device and log on at the start of their work day and returns it into the office drop box at the end of their work day after logging off the device. The device also allows the instructor to turn on the mile tracking feature to calculate mileage between the office and the first student and subsequently, between each student’s home, up until the instructor returns to the office and logs off for the night.
