Prepare a professional report (1,250-1,500 words) as if you are the informatics director of a 300-bed facility and the

chief operating officer (COO) has given you the following directives:

Improve communication and coordination between admitting, laboratory, pharmacy, and clinicians to increase throughput;

assume that each department has its own system currently in place.
Propose a solution that maintains existing software in each department and is supported by the HL7 initiatives.
In addition, define your focus and select a hardware solution; it may consist of a phased approach or an approach that

directs attention only to one of the groups, or it may involve all of the aforementioned departments.
