Traditionally, patients had registered with HAH using a paper-form based system, which had resulted in a proliferation of different forms and a system in which it was difficult to detect errors. HAH needed a new web-based system to replace the old paper-based system for ordering medicines online. Because the system would carry patients personal data, it needed to meet HAH’s stringent standards for patient confidentiality and security.
Blueberry worked closely with HAH to produce a detailed requirements analysis. Because the system would carry patients personal data, it needed to meet HAH’s standards for patient confidentiality and security. Emphasis was placed on adding error checking and data validation wherever possible and automating any notifications to users.
Several iterations of requirements and work flow were examined which resulted in a detailed document being drawn up to allow the formal software development process to begin.
