* Define key techniques and modelling methodologies for system analysis and design
* Explore the application of decision support systems in patient care
* Outline the development and issues relating to implementation of the EHR.
On completion of this unit students will be able to:
* Develop, analyse and evaluate a system using modelling techniques
* Evaluate the role and application of decision support in clinical systems to improve patient care
* Discuss the significance of and issues relating to the implementation of the EHR.

The design and management of systems and processes has led to debate since the beginning of time. Any healthcare environment brings its own unique challenges to the systems designer, and this unit explores how systems in healthcare may be modelled and how systems can be built in to enhance the healthcare process. This will include the following topics:
* System development and analysis using modelling techniques
* Decision support systems
* EHR - longitudinal health record.
