Duke Center for Health Informatics--N563. System Design, Implementation, Evaluation, and Maintenance

This course addresses the complex processes involved in the design, implementation, evaluation and maintenance of health care information systems. Using a team-based approach, students develop knowledge, technical skills, and evaluative methods used in the assessment of information systems through the application of the didactic content in the development of a small scale information system project. Emphasis is placed on systems lifecycle, system architecture, clinical information system testing and system selection, implementation planning and strategies and project management, evaluation methods for improvements in care, and process improvement through the use of archived data in health care. Students will learn techniques for operational, technical and ongoing analysis of system maintenance and evaluation. Fall (distance-based) 3 credits.
