There are mainly four quadrants in the stakeholder map describing Internal Operation and the External Operation and Internal Executive and External Executive. There are many stakeholder roles in each of the quadrants. The roles of all the stakeholders are described below.
Accessing information of all the patients: The information of the patients is stored usually in the data storage. Data storage is very helpful to store all the details of the patients. The data is mainly stored in the cloud of the data system. The data that is stored in the cloud is very helpful to the staffs, nurses, and doctors as well. Details of patients can be fetched from any places at any time. The system of data storage also helps to mitigate the difficulties that are faced by patients and doctors in treatment methods that are carried out traditionally.
Information System: The process of sharing the data via information system is very fruitful to all the staffs and members of the health care organization. By the data on information system, the patient’s medical status can be known to nurses and doctors at anytime and anywhere. The information that is stored helps in easy diagnosis of the patients and makes all the procedure more quick and easy to handle.
Data storage: The most important operation of the information system is data storage. The data storage stores all the information and data in the storage system. The storage database enables to insert data, delete data, and also update all the data that are stored in. thee three functions are mainly used to manage the operations that are to be held with the data in data storage.
Legislation: All projects that are made to be in use should be made according to the rules and the regulations that are illustrated by legislation. The project that is developed for the Tele-health also follows all the rules and the regulations to avoid all kinds of unethical activities that can take place in an organization. It is very much important to make the rules as per legislation of the country. The system of Tele-Health is made with all the regulations followed by the legislation of Australia.
System analysis: The working system of the Tele-Health is analyzed and checked by the analyst who is involved in tracking the systems. If the analysis is not done properly, the system may lead to failure which proves in great loss of the company.
Government: The system that is made should be have approval from the government of the country. All the documents are to be submitted to the government of Australia properly and if some help is needed from the government, it will also be provided to the system developers. The government also helps to spread the system to the citizens more easily and also helps to mitigate the challenges.
The questionnaires that are prepared are mainly for all internal stakeholders that are involved in the system. The questions that are stated below can be asked to all the nursing staffs of the health care and doctors as well. The reviews that will be collected from the nurses and the physicians will be shown to external stakeholders and the internal stakeholders in a report format. By this process, this project of Tele-health can give success to the health care. The questionnaires that can be asked are stated as follows:
- What are profits that can be obtained by the stated information system to all their patients?
- How the challenges that are faced by their patients because of traditional treatment method can be resolved by Tele-Health?
- What are the problems that are faced by the patients by sharing their information of medical status?
- What are the main issues that are faced by the developers while building up the project?
- How both the sectors that is patients as well as doctors gets benefited from this development of the information system?
- For how much time the data and the information of the patients can be kept secured in the system without help of any external interruption?
- What are the strategies for security that are needed to be followed so the system remains safe?
- What are the strategies of discrimination that are undertaken by the system developer so that the details of the different patients can be differentiated?
- For storing some inaccurate information about patients, what are those negative impacts that are posed in the system?
- What are the advantages and the disadvantages for the internal stakeholders and the external stakeholder regarding the information system of Tele-Health?
Use Case of the Information System of Tele-Health

It can be described from the use case that there are mainly five main actors in the use case of Tele-Health. The actors that can be seen are administrators, cloud vendor, doctor, patients, and nurse. The process of Tele-Health can improved the system of medical treatment in all the rural areas. The doctors and the nurses can easily get all the information about their patients which helps the treatment system more easy. The administrator who can access the information system can add, update, and delete information about the patients in the system of Tele-Health.
The most important operation of the use case of information system is data storage. The data storage stores all the information and data of patients in the storage system. The storage database enables to insert data, delete data, and also update all the data that are stored in. There are mainly three functions are mainly used to manage the operations that are to be held with the data in data storage. The process of sharing the data through information system is very useful to all the staffs and the members of the health care organization. By the data on information system, the patient’s medical status can be known to nurses and doctors at anytime and anywhere.
The nurses can check the record of the databases and update the system if patients need some changes. The information that is stored helps in easy diagnosis of the patients and makes all the procedure more quick and easy to handle. The information of the patients is stored usually in the data storage. Data storage is very helpful to store all the details of the patients. The data is mainly stored in the cloud of the data system. The data that is stored in the cloud is very helpful to the staffs, nurses, and doctors as well. Details of patients can be fetched from any places at any time. The patients can log in into the system by giving the ids and passwords and then input their details. They can also login to check their information in the system. The system of data storage also helps to mitigate the difficulties that are faced by patients and doctors in treatment methods that are carried out traditionally.
