The following should include in the proposal:

What key considerations are involved in setting up a computer network for an integrated health care system?

The key considerations that are involved in setting up is that a computer network for an integrated health care system, having 280 physicians that serve over 40 locations, has to be linked to a patent record that is legal and is usually located in a hospital, integrated network, or a doctor's office. The second key consideration in setting up a computer network for an integrated health care system is that the network provides access to medical patient's medical records. In an integrated system this access is provided to health care providers, employers, patients, physicians, and payers. The electronic health record is an actant in the network. One of the most important considerations in setting up of computer network for an integrated health care system is the strategy to protect the privacy of patients. This strategy has to be robust so that privacy is protected when the network is used by insurers, doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers. Another important consideration in setting up a computer network for an integrated health care system is that the synchronization of records at different facilities should be updated in a coordinated manner. Usually a centralized data server is required to solve the problem. For an integrated health care system record standardization and synchronization of records ...
