Shulaiba, Refaat A.
ProQuest LLC, D.M.I.T. Dissertation, Lawrence Technological University
The top two priorities of health care business leaders are to constantly improve the quality of health care while striving to contain and reduce the high cost of health care. The Health Care industry, similar to all businesses, is motivated to deliver innovative solutions that accelerate business transformation and increase business capabilities. Business transformation is an initiative to align an organization's business processes with the technology capabilities of the firm. This research developed a conceptual solution of rapid business transformation (RBT) for health care by examining the related data requirements, business processes and Information Technology (IT) resources. The alignment of business processes with IT capabilities provides the ability to enhance the business strategy and vision, and is essential to the long term success of the health care organization. This RBT enables innovative new business strategies to be deployed, thereby satisfying the long term objectives. The research developed a tailored version of The Open Group Architectural Framework (TOGAF) and is grounded in the Baldrige Framework and the Value Understanding and Performance (VUP) Model. The conceptual solution was modeled and tested by designing and building a prototype in a virtual research environment. It was deployed and applied to a medium sized Health Care Maintenance Organization (HMO) specializing in Medicare and Medicaid.
