Information Sharing Model using SSM for Sharing Health Information?
Kate Ncube, Member
Who can help me on how to develop an information sharing model using SSM for sharing health information? Thanks..

Information Requirements, Using SSM
Steve McIntosh, Member
This is not as straightforward as your question implies. Information support is a "service system". To identify information needs, you need to start by understanding the "system served". So you would have to start by modelling "health" and using this model to derive information requirements.
Information sharing then becomes explicit through looking at responsibility for activities that depend on each other, and from identifying organisational boundaries. This is very well described in the book 'Soft Systems Methodology: Conceptual Model Building and Its Contribution'.

Health Systems Information (HSO)

From a practical perspective, HSI must be treated as a function of the resultant health project strategy mix. In such mix, sustainability factors become critical variables; when project term is "shortened," HSI becomes utterly absent!

Applying SSM in Health Services

Kate - I can help you. I've been applying SSM since about 2013 or so in numerous applications. I am currently working on a collaboration project with another business representative to develop an SSM application within the health services domain. Contact me to discuss your needs and how best to address your situation.
