Day 2 in Nashville, Tennessee, for the 15th Conference of ITERA–the Information & Telecommunications Education & Research Association.
This afternoon session is the annual Case Study Competition.
The case problem this year is medical records technology, policy, and business. Presenters have 20 minutes, then 5 minutes Q&A.
The four teams are from Ball State University, James Madison University, Murray State University, Ohio University.
The team representatives draw for presentation order. Ball State University goes first. (Disclaimer: Ball State is also my home university.)
Their team does an overview, then presents a user’s perspective. Now they are into the systems perspective. They have a major focus on information security; they have a double-wall security architecture.
The team has an Implementation section to their presentation. Feasibility is first part. They have training involved, nationwide. Then they forecast an international phase. The will then do a live roll-out.
The team then presents its Cost section. Budget has networking, hardware, consulting fees, year support (optional).
The judges are pressing the presenters on details technically and economically.
