GENERAL NOTES FOR ASSIGNMENTS
Assignments should usually incorporate a formal introduction, main points and conclusion, and will be fully referenced including a reference list.
The work must be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We strongly recommend you to refer to the Academic Learning Skills materials available in the
Moodle. For details please click the link http://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/course/view.php?id=5 and download the file “Harvard Referencing Workbook”. Appropriate academic writing and referencing are inevitable academic skills that you must develop and demonstrate.
We recommend a minimum of FIVE references, unless instructed differently by your lecturer. Unless specifically instructed otherwise by your lecturer, any paper with less than FIVE references may be failed. Work that includes sources that are not properly referenced according to the “Harvard Referencing Workbook” will be penalised.
Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count – as a general rule you may go over or under by 10% than the stated length.
GENERAL NOTES FOR REFERENCING
High quality work must be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We recommend you work with your Academic Learning Support (ALS) site (http://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/course/view.php?id=5) available in Moodle to ensure that you reference correctly.
References are assessed for their quality. You should draw on quality academic sources, such as books, chapters from edited books, journals etc. Your textbook can be used as a reference, but not the lecturer notes. We want to see evidence that you are capable of conducting your own research. Also, in order to help markers determine students’ understanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page number/s if shown in the original. Before preparing your assignment or own contribution, please review this ‘YouTube’ video by clicking on the following link: Plagiarism: How to avoid it
PLAGIARISM: HOW TO AVOID IT
You can search for peer-reviewed journal articles, which you can find in the online journal databases and which can be accessed from the library homepage. Wikipedia, online dictionaries and online encyclopaedias are acceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic, but should not be overused – these should constitute no more than 10% of your total list of references/sources. Additional information and literature can be used where these are produced by legitimate sources, such as government departments, research institutes such as the NHMRC, or international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO). Legitimate organisations and government departments produce peer reviewed reports and articles and are therefore very useful and mostly very current. The content of the following link explains why it is not acceptable to use non peer reviewed websites: Why can't I just Google? (thanks to La Trobe University for this video).
Epping Medical Centre
Epping Medical Centre (EMC) is small private practise in North West Sydney. The centre has grown recently and the owner, Sam Petra, wants to develop new information system to handle all business operation. Their current system is inadequate to provide real time information to medical staff and access to medical information and patient need to go physically to centre to retrieve their medical report.
As IT consultant you began your systems analysis phase by conducting interviews, reviewing existing reports, and observing office operations. The EMC medical team perform service and medical procedure which are coded. Code consist of two digit suffix and seven numeric digit. The new system will provide opportunity for significant cost saving for EMC, and will help medical staff to go online and update medial information, check record and schedule appointment as well as provide convenience for patient. The clinic required various report you learned during your fact-finding exercise.
Hourly appointment report, which shows the patients who are to be reminded of their next day’s appointments. Information such as patient id, P_name, contact, appointment time,

P_names, and procedure to be performed, including the code and description.

3. Describe two systems development tools and two development methods you can used for system development for EMC.
Modelling Exercise (18 Marks)

2. Prepare a context diagram for EMC information system.
3. Prepare a diagram level 0 DFD for EMC. Be sure to show numbered processes for handling patient information, appointments, and report processing.
