Alternative solution to barcode implementation Student’s Name Institutional Affiliation Date Case study analysis Alternative solution to barcode implementation Barcode implementation at the Santiago Care Center is bound to fail as the problems are with the personnel rather than the technological capabilities. Personnel training is an essential remedy for the identified human resource problem. The staff in the hospital require an indication of the barcode system before the implementation of the system in the provision of healthcare services (Seibert et al. 2014). It is evident that majority of the nurses and physicians in the hospital are not aware of the new system. Booth et al. (2017) emphasize that the technological awareness and capacity of the Reference Amata A. Flynn A. Morgan M. Smith T. & Tengdin M. (2010). A Dungeon of Dangerous Practices.

Alternatives solutions to the problem After identifying the issue(s), indicate a number of possible realistic solutions available to the organization. Include a brief, logical argument for each of these solutions. Address the challenges that might accompany suggested solutions. There can be more than one solution to every problem. Listing possible solutions is a form of brainstorming that will later permit you to assign values or weights to those ideas: is one solution less expensive than another? Will one be more effective than another? Will one idea work more quickly? Will one of these ideas have a more enduring effect? Recommendation The recommendation will be some combination of the above alternatives. Specifically state what will be done, by whom, when, how, where and, most importantly, why. Justify the decision with sound logic. Why will this approach work? Apply concepts from this course to the solution. Additional research may be necessary and is encouraged (that is, consult other textbooks, leading management journals and so on). Ensure that the solutions do indeed address the identified problems and causes.
