Consolidating Health Surveillance Data
When developing an IT system for disease surveillance, it is essential to consider the needs of the system, the scale and availability of data, the robustness of the algorithms, and the budget. These considerations are important in determining the system’s architecture, which is a critical component of the system. Subtle differences in architecture design can greatly impact how a surveillance system may be used and how it will perform under different conditions.
To prepare for this Discussion, review your Learning Resources related to the software architecture of surveillance systems. Select a public health organization of interest to you and research the organization’s surveillance activities. Consider the organization’s needs and how its needs align with the system’s software architecture.
By Day 3
Post a brief description of the organization you selected and its surveillance activities. Considering the needs of the organization, recommend whether a single-purpose desktop application with local-level data or a networked application with broad-based information access is best for the organization, and describe what architectural features you would propose. Justify your selections.
Respond to a colleague who selected a different architecture and/or organization than you.
Support your suggestions with additional scholarly resources. Use APA formatting for your Discussion and to cite your resources.
Consolidating Health Surveillance Data
Dr. Aaron Frieden Wald founded the Jewish Community Center in 1854. It is a recreational center, and it is a fraternal and social organization that is meant to serve the Jewish people in most North American cities (Sheskin, Dashefsky, & Markowitz, 2020). The organization has equally promoted culture and a sense of heritage through various activities that it carries during the holidays. JCC is a global umbrella organization for the Jewish people. The primary purpose of the JCC is to empower, strengthen and enhance Jewish life in North America. It describes various services that assist its affiliates in providing social, cultural, and educational programs to people of all ages and the respective backgrounds. JCC offers its services to people’s needs in society and those with special needs like autism disorders and the inability to learn.
They are basing on the service offered by JCC to its people. It is identical that the organization’s needs stand out to favor the services rendered by the organization. The organization tirelessly works to ensure whoever is under their umbrella has acquired the basic life needed for every human being. There is also data that is usually kept concerning distributing their services, which equally helps in budgeting their services annually. Grano et al. (2017) Having identified the JCC organization’s need, it is crucial to implement a system that will entail a networked application that will indicate all JCC organization information is crucial in running the administrative services.
The avoidance of the application’s decay necessitates consideration of the software’s architectural design to ensure an interactive exploration where there must be a graphical display of end-end user application (Perera, Silva, & Perera, 2017). Hence, the architectural design that will contribute to the services’ efficiency should contain a change in simulation that will ensure there are chances of modifying the organization’s services through the application. The design’s database should ensure that there are end-end layers that can enable the application user’s search of services (Martin, 2018). Hence adhering to this, the JCC organization will effectively meet everyone interested in having their services by inoculating the data recorded into the system to provide a way forward to utilize the system to improve their services.
