  • I've written a lot in the past about how crazy it drives me when things go wrong with a hospital's MEDITECH system and they blame it on the code. While no software is perfect, I can tell you that after years troubleshooting issues from over 20 hospitals and then even more years doing the same for facilities, most problems go back to users. We're certainly not at all perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but if you want your system to run smoothly, there is only one way to get there. You need to be able to identify talent within your organization or within outside Consultants. Here's what you need to look for...

    Starting off with the most basic, but most commonly overlooked trait, identify who is the person people always go to for technical questions.

    It sounds strange to have to type out but sadly I've seen it happen a million times. The folks who know the most are not the ones who are asked technical questions when major decisions are made. If you…

  • Based on the information you have collected from the requirements and the initial data analysis, it’s time to make a choice on the reporting technology. It’s important to do the research first because those factors can actually have a large impact on this decision. And yes, it’s another decision that can very important to the overall project.

    When I talk about choosing a reporting technology, I’m referring to the tools and media used to construct, extract, and present the data to the consumers in some organized form. In the NPR-Meditech world, you basically have a choice between NPR and NPR.

    However, since the SQL Server-based DR is ODBC compliant (Open Database Connectivity), you now have literally dozens of reporting tools and options at your disposal to choose from. Some may be better than others with different types of features which is why it’s important to gather all the requirements first. Also you don’t need to spend 3 days forma…

  • Once you have the specs defined as well as you can, the first stage in the actual construction of a report begins by investigating the data requirements. This almost always involves some detective work to figure out where the data is going to come from.

    Here are the basic questions that need to be answered during this phase:

    Which databases?
    In the NPR world, you need to obviously first determine where this report is going to reside. The goal here is to choose the application that requires the least amount of exterior macros and fragments. This isn’t a problem with DR unless you need to go outside the DR database itself.

    What tables or segments?
    Try to determine where is most of the data is coming from. The NPR gurus can speak to this more than I can, but this is one of the most significant decisions when building an NPR report. It becomes almost an art form when examining the hierarchy dictionary of segments and applications.

    Which fields?
    At the smallest level, you…
