Abstract:

This thesis analyzes the current management information systems in place at Silas B. Hays Army Community Hospital with in-depth research into the hospitals largest department, the Department of Family Practice and Community Medicine. The findings of the research indicate these systems are not meeting the needs of department managers within the hospital. This thesis contains a requirements analysis for an improved information system for the department. The process of identifying the targeted users, selecting the appropriate development methodology, and identifying the users information requirements is discussed. The value of the information required by the department manager, both in content and format, is examined. The requirements analysis is based on a combination of systems development life cycle and prototyping methodologies for information systems development and can be used to design, construct, and implement an information system for the targeted department. The requirements analysis can also be used to study the expandability of the proposed information system to departments throughout Silas B. Hays Army Community Hospital.
