Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

  1. Post a description of what you believe to be the consequences of a healthcare organization not involving nurses in each stage of the SDLC when purchasing and implementing a new health information technology system.
  2. Provide specific examples of potential issues at each stage of the SDLC and explain how the inclusion of nurses may help address these issues.
  3. Then, explain whether you had any input in the selection and planning of new health information technology systems in your nursing practice or healthcare organization and explain potential impacts of being included or not in the decision-making process. Be specific and provide examples.
