SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT LIFE CYCLE (SDLC) SUPPORT

- SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT LIFE CYCLE (SDLC) SUPPORT

Given today’s demands on healthcare organizations and related businesses and the complexity of linking multiple systems and vendors, healthcare information systems must be prescribed and integrated deliberately, in a structured and methodical way. SDLC originated in the 1960s to develop large scale functional business systems for conglomerates needing heavy data processing and number crunching routines. It is composed of a number of clearly defined and distinct work phases used to plan for, design, build, test, and deliver information systems. Since the 1960s, a number of SDLC models and methodologies emerged to accommodate rising integration sophistication. These SDLC variations include waterfall, spiral, Agile software development, rapid prototyping, incremental, and synchronize and stabilize. New Health Consulting is expert in applying the most fitting SDLC model and methodology to your systems development project and directs each project concentrated on your unique needs as a healthcare organization.

Two of the most important phases of SDLC are requirements gathering and quality assurance and testing:

  • Requirements gathering is probably the most important activity to be performed in delivering an information solution. There is no one perfect means for identifying and gathering requirements. New Health will select the ideal methods for each individual project. Some commonly used methods include:

    • Interviews
    • Storyboarding
    • Use Cases
    • Questionnaires
    • Brainstorming
    • Prototyping
  • Quality assurance and testing includes activities that ensure the implementation of processes, procedures, and standards in context for the verification of the developed/integrated software and intended requirements. We focus as much on the required processes and procedures to maximize use of the new system as the actual testing on the system. Software testing is an investigation conducted to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of a particular product or service under test. In other words, software testing is a process of verification and validation.
