MetadataShow full item record
The author’s 13 week internship was at Cancer Care Nova Scotia for the Colon Cancer Screening program. The intern joined the organization at the planning and development of the program. The main responsibilities included analysis of report requirements and gap analysis of Cancer Care Application for Screening Program with Enhanced Reporting and reporting analysis of Clinical Outcomes Research Initiatives. The author studied the requirements document for the screening program and also with discussion with the team for the Colon Cancer Prevention Program prepared the analysis report for the report requirements for the program which in turn pointed out the gaps in the applications and data requirements for these reports. These requirements were taken into consideration to fill in the gaps. As this was done at the early stage of the design and development of the application, there was no major time mismanagement and the program was able to roll out in the projected time frame. The intern was also responsible for developing the program requirement traceability matrix and writing of the test cases and testing of the CCASPER application. The author’s health informatics knowledge was put to use at various levels of the development of the application and in suggesting alternatives and emphasizing the importance of the health information flow and use, privacy issues, interoperability matters, and importance of healthcare knowledge base for measurement of outcomes and research.
