HCM3008 Week 3: System selection

This week, you will conduct system selection, which requires completion of the following steps:

  • Reviewing a Request for Proposal (RFP)—this invites selected vendors to submit a proposal to you that outlines details of their proposed information system or systems.
  • Evaluation of the proposed system through on-site demonstration, site visits, reference checks, and making a decision.
  • Contract negotiation.

Assume that your healthcare organization has conducted an RFI, or a fact finding part of the system implementation and helps to select the potential vendors. It has requested information from vendors about their products and services. With the information gathered, the organization has screened the potential vendors and issues the RFP (request for proposal).

Download this RFP for EHR Implementation: UA_RFP-EHR. This is an actual RFP. Review the document and answer the following:

  • Does the RFP expressly state organization and user needs? If so, what are these? If not, why is the RFP failing to do so?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of this RFP?
  • How would you change this document?

Complete the assignment in a 3–5-page Word document and name it SUO_HCM3008_W3_A2_yourinitials. Submit it to the W3: Assignment 2 Dropbox by Tuesday, August 1, 2017.

Cite any sources in the APA format.


Be careful with this week's project assignment (Assignment 2), System Selection. It can be tricky. Although the Request For Proposal (RFP) is for a university medical center, do not write about Akron University Medical Center. When you write your paper, pretend that the RFP for Akron University is for your fictionalized company that you wrote about in weeks 1 & 2 and not Akron University. I repeat; your paper is not to be about Akron University, but about your fictionalized health care organization! You should pretend you, or one of your employees wrote this RFP for your healthcare facility.
