How would you define decision making?
Decision making like planning, organizing and/or controlling involves a process directly influenced by behavioral and scientific disciplines as we aiming to choose among two alternative courses of action to attain a goal (Sharda et al., 2015). Decision-making consists of four phases (1) Intelligence Phase– identify problems and opportunities. (2) Design Phase– access/use of data, models and analytical processing. (3) Choice Phase - evaluate the impact of propose solutions using DSS tools. (4) Implementation Phase –put recommended solution to work; collect and analyze data for future improvement.
How DSS/BI web-based technologies and tools (such as PDA, cell phone, tablet computers and laptops) aid in each phase of managerial, administrative, research and/or clinical decision making?
Decision Support System (DSS) and Business Intelligence (BI) system are meant to be an adjuncts to managerial, administrative and clinical decision makers. Simply, DSS/BI extends decision makers’ capabilities but not replacing their judgment (Sharda et al., 2015). The web-based technologies and tools are allowing decision maker(s) to utilize DSS/BI to afford effective, interactive, flexible and adaptable decision process. Through, web-based technologies and tools a real-time and a historical data, and knowledge exchange is possible. A single user or many people in different locations can collaborate a solution to a specific problem, a simultaneously. Currently, the DSS/BI system had evolved from computer based system operation into an interactively online and with a graphical output capabilities simplified by browsers and mobile devices. Through an easy user interface and an incorporation of data and decision makers’ input, the DSS/BI web-based technologies and tools support all phases of decision-making process.
Building on the example of evidence-based database for clinical decision making, cited by Deily et al. (2013), it is intriguing to find out the impact of health information technology (HIT) adoption by inpatient Hospice facility may have on the end-of-life care quality. By using the algorithm method with its fixed effects variables and system-specific linear time trends, to determine whether greater use of HIT (e.g. Medication Reconciliation List) at nonhospital (home based) Hospice facilities improves end-of-life care outcomes at Hospice’s hospitals in the same healthcare network.

Jennifer thanks for your comment.
I reviewed the decision- making phases (intelligence, design, choice and implementation) and their management support system technologies, to arrived at the following conclusion. In the intelligence phase where we examine reality, identify the problem (its ownership), and its possible support (data mining), there is not an adequate data source to justify or dispute the impact the health information technology (HIT) adoption by inpatient Hospice facility on the end-of-life care quality. However, it would be intriguing to find out, if data mining for end-of-life care becomes available, hopefully in the near future.
In our center, Hospice and palliative Care (HPC), we still struggle with the key challenges such as access to services, continuity of care and delivery of an effective and efficient patient-centered care. In our own network, Hospice@ Home, we are lacking an interoperable health information exchange (HIE) system. The lack of interface and an incorporation of data, confines decision makers’ input, as well as DSS/BI web-based technologies and tools needed for all phases of decision-making process (Sharda et al., 2015).
Shortcomings and breaches in workflow exist in our HPC institution, as we are using a very specifically designed technology systems for pain management assessment, an educational application, and team consultation software. Unfortunately, these systems are home grown systems designed in isolation from other systems, so it is difficult to assess their true viability in the context of the broader environment. I strongly believe that HIT must be built with a vision of an integrated communication system, health information exchange, including a common model of the communication and data needs, and the incorporation of data standards to ensure that data are shareable across different settings (Sharda et al., 2015). Multiple times we are require to collect the same data across different settings, wasting our time, limiting the time we could spend

Mills UtilitarianismMill's Utilitarianism When faced with a moral dilemma, utilitarianism identifies the appropriate considerations, but offers no realistic way to gather the necessary information to make the required calculations. This lack of information is a problem both in evaluating the welfare issues and in evaluating the consequentialist issues which utilitarianism requires be weighed when making moral decisions. Utilitarianism attempts to solve both of these difficulties by appealing to experience; however,
Analysis Of The Treaty Of Versailles That Ended World War IAnalysis of the Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I In the peace settlement Germany was forced to accept sole responsibility for causing World War I.

Politics Of Plato And AristotlePolitics of Plato and Aristotle To compare the political theories of two great philosophers of politics is to first examine each theory in depth. Plato is regarded by many experts as the first writer of political philosophy, and Aristotle is recognized as the first political scientist. These two men were great thinkers. They each had ideas of how to improve existing societies during their individual lifetimes. It is necessary to look at several areas of each theory to seek the difference in each
The Bay Of Pigs InvasionThe Bay of Pigs Invasion The story of the failed invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs is one of mismanagement, overconfidence, and lack of security. The blame for the failure of the operation falls directly in the lap of the Central Intelligence Agency and a young president and his advisors. The fall out from the invasion caused a rise in tension between the two great superpowers and ironically 34 years after the event, the person that the invasion meant to topple, Fidel Castro, is still in power

The terms of such a defense are to be found in the instructions presented by the trial judge to the jury at the close of a case. These instructions can be drawn from any of several rules used in the determination of mental illness. The final determination of mental illn
PhilosophyPhilosophy When I was born, I did not know the difference between right and wrong. Now, I do. The word philosophy means the love of knowledge. One type of knowledge is propter quid, which ask the question why or how. In this paper, I will demonstrate how Socrates, Hume and Aristotle, three well known philosophers, would explain how I acquired this knowledge in relation to the principles of right and wrong. Socrates is the first philosopher, I will discuss. Since Socrates did not write anything d
The U.S. Penal SystemThe U.S. Penal System Prison inmates, are some of the most maladjusted people in society. Most of the inmates have had too little discipline or too much, come from broken homes, and have no self-esteem. They are very insecure and are at war with themselves as well as with society (Szumski 20). Most inmates did not learn moral values or learn to follow everyday norms.

Fascism And Its Political IdeasFascism and its Political Ideas Fascism is a form of counter-revolutionary politics that first arose in the early part of the twentieth-century in Europe. It was a response to the rapid social upheaval, the devastation of World War I, and the Bolshevik Revolution. Fascism is a philosophy or a system of government the advocates or exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership, together with an ideology of aggressive nationalism.

Sigmund FreudSigmund Freud Many believe Freud to be the father of modern psychiatry and psychology and the only psychiatrist of any worth. He is certainly the most well known figure, perhaps because sex played such a prominent role in his system. There are other psychologists, however, whose theories demand respectful consideration. Erik Erickson, born Eric Homburger, whose theories while not as titillating as Freud's, are just as sound. This paper will compare the two great men and their systems. In additio
The Rise Of Communism In RussiaThe Rise of Communism In Russia Unless we accept the claim that Lenin's coup d'etat gave birth to an entirely new state, and indeed to a new era in the history of mankind, we must recognize in today's Soviet Union the old empire of the Russians -- the only empire that survived into the mid 1980's (Luttwak, 1). In their Communist Manifesto of 1848, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels applied the term communism to a final stage of socialism in which all class differences would disappear and humankind
PolygraphsPolygraphs Introduction Homo Sapiens have yearned for a reliable and consistently correct way of finding out if one is telling the truth since ancient times. ?Early societies used torture. Statements made by a person on the rack were considered especially believable.? (Jussim, pg.65) There was also trial by ordeal, which was based on superstition. For instance, if there were two suspects for one crime, it was thought that the innocent would be stronger in combat and thus vanquish a guilty oppone
Egypt-Israeli Conflict And The WestEgypt-Israeli Conflict and the West The History of the conflict in the Middle East is long and well documented. To both, and to many biased observers the history of the Egyptian/Israeli conflict is very one sided, with one government, or one people causing the continued wars between the two neighboring states. But, as any social scientist of any reputation will state, all international conflicts have more than one side, and usually are the result of events surrounding, and extending over the par

The U.S. - A Legitimate Democracy?The U.S. - a Legitimate Democracy? In any system which claims to be democratic, a question of its legitimacy remains. A truly democratic political system has certain characteristics which prove its legitimacy with their existence. One essential characteristic of a legitimate democracy is that it allows people to freely make choices without government intervention. Another necessary characteristic which legitimates government is that every vote must count equally: one vote for every person. For t

True Human Nature (Criticism Of Lord Of The Flies)True Human Nature (Criticism of Lord of the Flies) Reading Lord of the Flies, one gets quite an impression of Golding?s view on human nature. Whether this view is right or wrong, true or not, is a point to be debated. This image Golding paints for the reader, that of humans being inherently bad, is a perspective not all people share. This opinion, in fact, is a point that many have disagreed with when reading his work. There are many instances throughout Lord of the Flies that state Golding?s op
