Allscripts Healthcare Inc. is an innovative company that provides healthcare solutions and services to help organizations achieve better clinical, administrative, financial and operational results. The author was supervised by Mr. Jaimes Blunt, a very knowledgeable and experienced Senior Solution Manager at Allscripts Healthcare Inc.
The report consists of background information on two key topics used in the report, introduction on Allscripts business, goals and achievements, learning opportunity and exposure during the internship, objectives and deliverables of the projects assigned, analysis of a problem that can be solved using informatics science and a conclusion and recommendation drawn at the end of internship.
Within this internship period, the author contributed to two major projects and a couple of minor projects supervised by Mr. James Blunt. At the end of the internship, he successfully met the objectives and deliverables of the two assigned projects, which are: Privacy and Security Requirements Gathering for FollowMyHealth (Infoways Certification Services) and Requirements for CIHI’s RAI-MDS 2.0 Canadian Version. The end deliverables of both projects are business and system requirements documents (word, excel and Visio files) submitted to the supervisor in a timely manner throughout the internship.
The internship was highly valuable to understand and use the knowledge and skills gained in MHI courses. It is a great exposure to the field of Health Informatics and is highly recommended to students on MHI internship track at Dalhousie University.||en_US
