DFD Diagram

Data flow diagrams (DFDs) are used for documenting the logical design of an information system by showing graphically the various entry and exit touch points within a HMIS. Data flow diagrams provide a way for the system to be broken down into manageable parts beginning with a general context and moving into more detail.

Draft a DFD for one area you identify from the list below:

1. Patient admission
2. Perioperative (pre, intra, post)
3. Departmental handoff
4. Medical billing/insurance
5. Physician ordering
6. Supply chain management
7. Security management (include HIPAA guidelines)
8. Other (instructor’s approval required)

Write a two- to three-page summary (excluding title and reference pages) in APA format outlining the DFD for your selected area. Additionally, provide a graphic version of your DFD that is compartmentalized to produce optimized results, for the benefit of the HMIS team and other stakeholders. Utilize at least two scholarly and/ or peer-reviewed sources published within the last five years, cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Carefully review”>Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
