I'm looking for a technically inclined writer to formulate 20 practice questions on information system and IT project lifecycle topics.
Questions will be multiple choice with four possible answers– test takers will choose one ‘best’ answer. Each question should also include a thorough explanation (using basic graphics if needed), as well as any additional resources the test taker may find useful in learning more about the topic.
Topic areas for the 20 questions include:
Concepts in governance
Concepts in governance 2
Business Associate Agreements
Service Level Agreements
Needs analysis/systems selection (5)
True cost of ownership
Systems implementation team
System testing 2
Gathering clinician feedback
Data loss prevention
Transitioning and decommissioning
Planning systems evaluation
Evaluating systems methods
These questions are to be part of a larger scale exam aimed at technically-savvy physicians. The test-taker is a physician with many years of experience working in high-level/executive positions in health care organizations. This exam will evaluate their preparedness for positions that require clinical, technical, and leadership skills.
The questions may contain a clinical vignette, an experimental or statistical observation, a definition or classification, an administrative problem, an application of a principle or regulation, or any situation potentially faced in practice.
The ideal candidate should:
- Have general experience/knowledge on information system lifecycles and be able to explain sometimes complex concepts in a clear and concise way
- Understand the healthcare system & how technical concepts may apply to them
- Be able to follow guidelines for writing test questions (http://www.nbme.org/pdf/itemwriting_2003/2003iwgwhole.pdf)
If you're not too familiar with one of the topic areas, no worries. I'll include some starter material to work from.
If you need any additional clarification, I've attached some sample questions on a related topic if you'd like to check them out.
