Non-Technical Enterprise Architecture in Healthcare: Challenges and Recommendations
by Wei Sheng Lim, Philip Loya, Vaibhav Sinha, Laura Vander Slott, Jie Yu and Rod Dilnutt
There are many papers written on Enterprise Architecture, but most focus, at least in part, on technical aspects of EA and its implementation. This paper, from students at the University of Melbourne, instead focuses on the non-technical aspects of EA, with particular focus on the healthcare sector which itself presents unique challenges due to competing goals of clinical outcomes on the one hand, and business outcomes on the other. Healthcare is presented as a good example of “culture eats strategy for lunch”.
The paper has been created under the supervision of Dr Rod Dilnutt, School of Computing and Information Systems, The University of Melbourne.
