Healthcare Delivery Systems Annotated Bibliography

In the peer-reviewed article and research study Seamless Healthcare Delivery Systems (Parnaby, Towill, 2008) is based on a research methodology that relies entirely on secondary research including a comprehensive literature review of healthcare delivery systems performance. The audience for the paper are healthcare professionals including physicians managing medical groups, Chief Administrative and Chief Operation officers of large-scale medical networks and system and process analysts who must make systems integrate with each other to attain a higher level of organizational effectiveness (Parnaby, Towill, 2008).

The article's content and focus is on the role of collaboration and shared knowledge management across diverse medical systems and medical process workflows (Parnaby, Towill, 2008). There is an abundance of analysis based on theoretical concepts from cited studies, and there is also a series of conclusions drawn on how to make the most out of seamless healthcare systems.

What's missing is more information for the practitioner and the teams of private sector.

In conclusion Seamless Healthcare Delivery Systems (Parnaby, Towill, 2008) provides an insightful analysis of current literature in this area, yet fails to deliver an actionable, pragmatic series of steps for practitioners to use for integrating systems, processes and platforms together for greater healthcare effectiveness.

In the article, An Evolutionary Approach To The Architecture Of Effective Healthcare Delivery Systems (Towill, Christopher, 2005) attempt to apply proven workflows from commercial products and services to healthcare delivery systems. The first author is from the Logistics Systems Dynamics Group from Cardiff University and the second is from the Cranfield School of Management. Both of their backgrounds are evident in how this study was undertaken, specifically with a strong focus on lean production and total process mapping and analysis (Towill, Christopher, 2005).

The study attempts to use analogy-based inference to apply lean production workflows and processes being applied in a healthcare context. This approach is only somewhat effective as the workflows in healthcare are more predicated on insurance carrier and healthcare provider payment dynamics with patient care often being an adjunct workflow (Towill, Christopher, 2005). As a result this approach to…
