Informatics nurses (INs) and informatics nurse specialists (INSs) apply informatics knowledge and skills in the
areas of a system development life cycle (SDLC). Graduate-level INSs are particularly well prepared for
planning the process for an SDLC. They have the knowledge, skills, and competencies to effectively assume
the role of project manager by facilitating interprofessional communication, managing change, and
coordinating the process of implementation. Whether the project is small (e.g., departmental) or very large
(e.g., system-wide), INSs are central to the success of a health information system project. Careful planning is
involved using project management techniques, such as a task/timeline for all phases of an SDLC using a
Gantt chart format.
You recently earned your master’s degree in nursing informatics and have been hired as an informatics nurse
specialist at a midsize rural hospital. Diabetes and high blood pressure are growing public health problems in
underserved populations living in excess of 45 minutes from the hospital. Much of the population does not
have access to the internet. In an effort to improve access to healthcare services and increase patient
accountability in patient-physician interactions, your organization is considering the integration of a telehealth program. Your hospital currently has a modern EHR in place that allows integration across
ambulatory care offices associated with the organization. As the team lead, you have been asked to identify a
telehealth system that addresses the needs of your community and is compatible with your hospital’s current
You must deliver a Gantt chart to your hospital executive leadership that arranges all the major subtasks in
each of the five major phases of your SDLC (i.e., planning, analysis, design/development, implementation, and
evaluation). You must complete your Gantt chart using the Microsoft Visio software, Excel, or an equivalent
drawing tool. Instructions for downloading and using Microsoft Visio are provided in Web Links below. If you
are using a different diagramming tool, you will need to find and use instructions for the tool you select. You
will also present your approach to planning the SDLC to your hospital executive leadership.
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no
more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from
sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used
as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that
will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric
aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
Part 1: Gantt Chart Creation
A. Create a Gantt chart outlining the full SDLC of the integration of your hospital’s new telehealth system
that includes each of the following:
• five phases of an SDLC
• five major sub-tasks within each phase of the SDLC
• specific start dates, finish dates, and task durations for each subtask
• designated resource name
• task dependencies indicated with arrows
• one milestone event in each phase of an SDLC.
Note: Submit your Gantt in PDF format. Make sure to save it in both the original and PDF formats in case
edits are needed.
Part 2: Presentation to Executive Leadership
Using Panopto, record yourself presenting your approach to planning the SDLC to the hospital’s executive
leadership. The video should be approximately 20 minutes.
Note: For instructions on how to access and use Panopto, use the “Panopto How-To Videos” web link
provided below. To access Panopto’s website, navigate to the web link titled “Panopto Access”, and then
choose to log in using the “WGU” option. If prompted, log in using your WGU student portal credentials, and
then it will forward you to Panopto’s website.

To submit your recording, upload it to the Panopto drop box titled “Informatics Systems and Design AnalysisMVP2 / C798.” Once the recording has been uploaded and processed in Panopto’s system, retrieve the URL
of the recording from Panopto and copy and paste it into the Links option. Upload the remaining task
requirements using the Attachments option.
B. Create a presentation (length of approximately 20 minutes) of your proposed approach to planning the
SDLC to the hospital’s executive leadership by doing the following:
1. Create a multimedia presentation (e.g., Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote) (length of 10–15 slides)
for your hospital’s executive leadership that includes the Gantt chart from part A and explains your
SDLC approach. Include presenter notes.
2. Justify in your multimedia presentation a detailed explanation for your inclusion of the five subtasks,
task owners, timeline, and milestone event in each of the following phases of the SDLC:
• planning
• analysis
• design/development
• implementation
• evaluation
3. Explain in your multimedia presentation to the hospital’s executive leadership how the subtasks of
your Gantt chart address the following:
• key data elements that support your organization’s cllinical research initiatives
• compliance with federal and other regulations
• the integration of ergonomics and environmental health
4. Discuss in your multimedia presentation to the hospital’s executive leadership the potential impact of
the new telehealth system on three of the following entities:
• healthcare consumers
• families
• communities
• resources
• networks
• healthcare organizations
5. Provide a link to an audiovisual recording of you delivering your presentation using the Panopto
system that incorporates your multimedia presentation.
Note: The audiovisual recording should feature you visibly presenting the material (i.e., not in
voiceover or embedded video) and should simultaneously capture both you and your multimedia
a. Demonstrate the following in your audiovisual presentation:
• professionalism
• confidence
• strong and clear communication and presentation skills
• efficient use of time
C. Acknowledge sources, using APA-formatted in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted,
paraphrased, or summarized.
D. Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.

Preview Presentation FIle


Another class from the same MSN Informatics, WGU. It is a PowerPoint Presentation that you’ll find incredibly helpful. The presentation also has the speaker’s notes. My client was so happy as it passed for her!
