A writer of the paper "Information Systems Management & Quality" discusses the point that from 2008 onwards to 2011, there were listings of wasted resource allocations for IT projects. This prompts for questions and answers as to why such losses occur…

A good example would be the purchase of a computer system for Bexley Hospital worth £12 billion. Did they not prepare a Needs Analysis based on survey and statistics so that the knowledge of “usefulness” or “functionality” of the computer system could be a solid basis for disapproving the budget for such a computer system? The government must have haphazardly allocated and implemented a £ 12 billion budget only to realize that out of 9,000 organizations, only 160 would use the system. According to Michael Savage, that functionality was discovered only after the implementation process. What might be the reason why it seems that government does not have quality control over IT governance? This case study concerning Bexley Hospital was chosen because it clearly represents a situation wherein no pre-planning or poor planning was done using a comprehensive model that can screen a decision whether or not to approve and fund a project. According to David Cameron, the IT system ideas were sold to NHS Professionals and swallowed as a whole and “As Is” after IT Consultants gave recommendations to government. That Computer Weekly article, News Clipping. 2, revealed no checking and control functions. Cameron cited inefficiency as a result of a preference for centralized and large computer systems that tend to be more costly and riskier. 3. Clarifications about the problem showed that centralized data that should have been accessible in local areas turned out to be 3 to 4 years delayed. See News Clipping....
This can be read in the Kable’s Government Computing article. See News Clipping # 3. In another article, clarifications about the problem showed that centralized data that should have been accessible in local areas turned out to be 3 to 4 years delayed. See News Clipping # 4. And the more detailed explanations for such a scenario are found in News Clipping # 5. It says, “…the centralized system has often been seen as a failure owing to continued installation setbacks, rising costs and data management problems.” In determining the needs of government for IT resources, for example, the ISMQ should have utilized a model that can filter the basis of decisions based on real needs instead of artificial or imaginary needs. A sample self-made model would be as follows: + + + It should be recalled that Information System projects are not the only projects in need of allocation of resources. Whatever will be the evaluation of alternative IS projects would have to compete for funding prioritization in the government’s portfolio of many projects in various aspects of governance. Such a model would have identified the limited beneficiaries who would not represent the common good of 9,000 organizations. There should have been a survey if most of them need the computer system under certain conditions, e.g. on the condition that the system provides updated information. It turned out that only 160 out of 9,000 found a need for the expensive computer system which had to be replaced. Potential delays and more accurate timetables can be communicated to administrators of the system in order to set the right expectations insofar as performance and efficiency are concerned.

The steps that are involved in selecting a DSS vendor and package and the reasons that it is important to integrate the DSS with current systems shall be elaborated in this paper. The management must ensure that the DSS that is to be built or bought would work effectively when it is used extensively in the hospital.
Information is required for decision making at every level of the organisation ranging from the top level executives to low level supervisors1. It is in the best interest of the organization that adequate, reliable and relevant information is gathered, formatted, stored and made available to the relevant individuals in the right time for effective decision making.
In addition, in order to gain a competitive edge the use of strategies information systems has become essential for the organizations. In fact, the strategic information system allows an organization to quickly respond to a change in its business environment.
According to the paper modern business concepts necessitate the use of information systems to improve work efficiency and improve performance assessment process. Children healthcare services are not exempt to these challenges and issues. This paper discusses problems in referral and assessment services in children’s healthcare facilities and makes recommendations for smoother running of the systems.
Taguchi defined quality as loss to society while Deming defined quality as predictable degree of uniformity (Chua et al., 2007). ISO 9000 : 2005 (E) defined quality as degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfills requirements (Peach, 2003). Similarly, a quality system is defined as interaction of organizational processes and resources to implement a quality management system (Hoyle, 2009).
The United Kingdom is apt and concurs with the rest of the world in this aspect (Petersons 2011). Specifically, this report focuses on the basic aspects of such provisions of the central government and the associated mitigations, that is, the regulations for the success of its high profile projects (Khosrowpour, 2006).

Among the several factors that may lead to failure of the healthcare information system is the lack or inadequate end-user involvement in the implementation process of the information system (Rahimi, Vimarlund & Timpka, 2009
