...order. Larger sites should rely on specialization as more detailed work can be completed in shorter periods of time. Senior people are preferred because things in the real world rarely act in the same manner as they do in the college laboratory. I once hired a mathematician as a capacity planner. He had a great understanding of the mathematics behind the work and created wonderful statistical documents. The problem was that he didn’t have any experience with the equipment or software so couldn’t judge the reasonableness of his work. Remember that we previously mentioned that this work is part science, experience and intuition. You need all the parts to be successful. For the most part, I have found that system programmers and system administrators make the best capacity planners, especially those with considerable operational experience. It doesn’t seem to make a difference if they have a college degree. Most are intelligent and can quickly absorb the mathematics and processes. The biggest challenge will be to get them out of the details. Since capacity planners deal with averages, working at too fine a level of detail can bog down analyses and have little or no improvement on the precision of the work. Training is an important part of keeping staff current and effective. Technology changes at a frightful rate and your staff needs to keep abreast of it. Newer technology may provide efficiencies that can substantially improve operations and lower costs. If you and your people......

...Option 1: Nursing Home Administrator Darryl Bowler HCS/320 October 8, 2013 Salome Kapella-Mshigeni Option 1: Nursing Home Administrator Because our local nursing home is being taken over by a national group, there will be new policies that we must adhere to as we progress. These policies are going to force our nursing home to adapt and change. I will review the new polices, the affects they have on our patients, the affect they have on our patient’s relatives, how we will effectively communicate to our patients, and what arrangements we are making for displaced individuals. In addition, I will attempt to define our role as a local nursing home being merged into a national group. Traditional health care communication to our nursing home clients would be a tedious task. The traditional media cannot cover all the needs of patients because the lack of services so that is a disadvantage. The advantages are physicians know the process without any problem which benefits our nursing home clients. The traditional process would involve acquiring a listing of the shareholders and a listing of our clients. We would also need mailing lists and phone contacts and hope those listings were accurate. We would have to attempt to contact each and every one listed. It would also require several personnel for the process and become very time consuming. This process would be an extreme disadvantage taking away from the productivity of the employees and the standard operations of our......

Roles of Administrators

...Roles of Administrators Paper Administrators provide key support across many fields with needs that are both demanding and ever-changing. These fields include areas such as human resources, budget making, and planning. Administrators work in both the public and private sector, where their similarities and differences exist among each, including across specialties. These aspects showcase the qualities that make an effective administrator, as well as one suited for his particular sector and field of specialty. The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast these similarities and differences of administrators within each sector for human resources, budget making, and planning. Administrators in the Public Sector - Similarities In the public sector, administrators across various areas face the same elements and challenges to their work structure. They must work within the constraints of the regulation, funding, politics, and mission of their organizations for example, while balancing the daily objectives required for managing the goals for the short and long-term. In short, the organization must manage the organization’s priorities alongside the broader national policy agenda and larger socio-economic footprint (“Role of human resources in revitalizing public administration,” 2004). In the realm of human resources the administrators for the public sector, this case represents employees of federal, state, local, or nonprofit agencies and impacts them in the areas......

College Administrator Failures

...College and University administrators tend to exclude adjuncts from the heart of the university staff experience, and tenured faculty often are just as quick to make the part-timers feel like second-class citizens. One professor, James Obersen, ended his recent article in The Atlantic with these words: “I’m grateful to teach, to work, to earn money to feed myself. But this hand-to-mouth existence shouldn’t be the norm. The injustices suffered by adjuncts…ends up hurting students. That is the last thing institutional policy should impede. Under-supported adjuncts means under-engaged students.” The analyses, decisions, and implementation of decisions on how to improve school operations must be done highly effectively and it must, first and foremost, be undertaken by the highest levels of school management up to the policy level in county, state, and federal governments. Administrators must continuously work to find solutions and provide strong support to enhance the welfare of students and faculty first. The last thing they should do is be the author of those problems. It is not enough to just fund and put programs in place; they must be executed effectively and get results. When results fail, the administrators have failed. Social responsibility, which includes fairness to workers and offering a living wage, should be addressed by all organizations, including colleges and universities. Only then can true progress be made by establishing a human relations, legal, and ethical...

System Administrator

...Career Choice: Network and Computer Systems Administrator Business and Writing for the IT Professional July 26, 2009 Abstract A network and systems administrator is responsible for network security, installing new applications, implementing software updates, monitoring the integrity of the system, developing management programs, and performing routine backups. As has been noted throughout my research, there has been a decline in technology majors throughout the past couple of years, thus affecting the job market. The survey that was conducted on high school seniors, as well as research done by some universities, has proven that lack of information and interest affects this type of career choice. By properly informing potential technology students and offering them resources, we can better equip our future system and network administrators to perform to their potential. Topic Proposal Author Background An interest in computers came to my attention shortly after graduating from high school. I first involved myself in working with cameras and fixing them for several customers. The satisfying knowledge that I gained came from realizing that I could take apart, fix a piece of technology and do it well. Computers as a hobby came only after my brother gave me one to fix and keep for my use. Although I was daunted at first, I took apart and drew diagrams, to remember where the components where located. I had no previous experience from computers that I had learned...

Manager Escalation Process for Service Desk Tickets and Incidents Manager Escalation Process Definition This process provides supervisors and managers (or VP/Dean-designated point person) the means for requesting urgent responses (beyond the planned SLA) to specific, previously-submitted Service Desk tickets. 1. Supervisor/manager (or VP/Dean-designated point person) submits a ticket in the Service Desk ticketing system. 2. This is outside of the automated SLA-defined escalation process (in planning stage). Assumptions 1. The user and the user's supervisor/manager have reviewed and understand the planned SLA-defined response times before initiating an escalation request. 2. The user and the user's supervisor/manager will not abuse the escalation process by inflating routine requests or inappropriately classifying them as urgent. Process flow with built-in (SLA-driven) escalation 1. User submits a Service Desk ticket via email, web, chat or voicemail. A ticket is assigned to a team or agent for response/resolution. 2. The Service Desk system automatically escalates the ticket if it is not responded to within two days. 3. Notices of escalations are sent to the respective ITS manager for follow-up. Process flow with supervisor/manager initiated escalation Process begins as outlined above (Steps 1...

Records Administrators and Technicians

...Health records administrators (RHIA) and health records technicians (RHIT) both work in the organization and management of patient information. In comparison to administrators, technicians have less educational requirements, fewer managerial responsibilities and receive lower salaries. A Health records technician (RHIT) is involved in assembling medical data and charts, maintaining secure records, coding diagnoses and ensuring access to healthcare information. A Health records administrator (RHIA) is also responsible for the security and organization of patient data, but their responsibilities are greater, as they are involved in the planning and supervision of records systems. They run and supervise records departments, stay up-to-date with changing healthcare regulations and legislation and manage electronic databases. One of several differences between a RHIA and a RHIT is administrator (RHIA) manages or supervises all the medical staff at a medical facility. Secondly a technician (RHIT) can assist an administrator, while an administrator is responsible for reviewing a technician’s (RHIT) work. An administrator (RHIA) has to be knowledgeable in medical requirements, standards, procedures, regulations, and methods. A technician (RHIT) has to know a wide range of medical codes, medical terminology, and medical record content and organization. Also a technician has to be well-informed in psychology, diseases, anatomical systems, read and comprehend a medical chart, and be......
