Managing Business Rules, Vocabulary, and Operational Decisions
Several years ago, the Immunization Information Systems Support Branch (IISSB) of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) embarked on a journey to implement a business rule approach to address issues with communication and interpretation of common business rules. This presentation describes that journey, from the introduction of new business analysis techniques and a new tool to the expansion of the approach to other areas within IISSB.
This presentation walks you through how a business rule approach is being used to:
- Simplify the process of generating and updating the specification for implementing the rules for immunization. These rules are established at the national level but implemented at a local level (e.g., state, county).
- Manage the terminology, principles and business rules across various best practice guides targeted to the Immunization Information Systems (IIS) community who implement the rules for patient immunization.
- Improve communication through a common vocabulary.
- Understand the benefits of a business rule approach
- Understand how the business approach is used in a complex environment
- Learn how a business rule management tool can enable consistency and reuse of terminology and rules
