THS Case: Transactional Database Analysis
[WLOS: 3, 4] [CLOS: 1, 4]
Prior to beginning work on your assignment,
- Review Chapter 5 of Systems Analysis and Design.
- Read Chapter 9, Section 9.8.1: Tools and Techniques, and Section 9.8.2: Logical Versus Physical Storage.
- Read the Datawarehouse Design for Educational Data Mining
- Read the Data Warehousing
- Read the Transformative Health System (THS) Case Study Download Transformative Health System (THS) Case Study .
In this assignment, you are reintroduced to the THS case study which was used in course HIA 610. You will utilize this case study for this assignment and your final presentation in this course. In the Transformative Health System (THS) case study, we see a community health system in a state of transformation moving from a focus on inpatient care toward ambulatory home and virtual care. In this assignment, begin to analyze the future needs of the Transformative Health System relative to expanding upon their current clinical data repository and developing a data warehouse including state-of-the-art Business Intelligence (BI) applications that will enable their executives in decision making.
In your paper,
- Explain the role of the current clinical repository in the THS strategy.
- Propose three to five types of transactional database (source) systems used within THS today that should be added to the current clinical repository to expand the THS data warehouse strategy.
- Describe at least three to five different data elements (basic unit of information) that are critical in each of the source systems that you propose to expand the THS data warehouse strategy.
- Explain the nine documentation elements for a data dictionary for one of the data elements that you propose adding to the data warehouse.
- Refer to Section 5.8.1: Documenting the Data Elements (data element name or label, alias, type in length of data field, default values, acceptable values, source system considerations, security considerations, responsible users in the description and comments)
- Recommend which of the source systems you would prioritize as the first system to include in the expansion of the data warehouse for THS based on the strategic direction of the organization.
