The hospital needs to find a way to improve the tracking of Voice Over IP (VOIP) calls within the hospital and also wants to have a program to improve response time of medical personnel by using the GPS to locate the closes vehicle to the emergency. A design will need to be made of the Requires and Provides interfaces of two components that might be used in the VOIP system. A design of the interface is needed for two components that may be used in the vehicle discovery component to find the nearest vehicle to the incident with the Requires and Provides interfaces.
According to Sommerville (2011), the Provides interface are services provided by the component, where the Requires interface specifies what services are needed by the other components in the system to operate correctly, (p. 457). The hospital wants to improve the tracking of VOIP calls which are made within the hospital system. The emergency control room will have a system for the call-logging component which will record the calls made. The first component would be for tracking the phone calls. The Require interface can be the caller id service which feeds into the component. With the caller id service, the Provides interface will be to see the phone number calling to, the phone number calling from, the time of the call, the length of the call, and a log file to see all the calls place from a phone or all phones. To track the calls the management is going to wait to see the phones numbers of the internal calls are from and to. Management is going to also want to see the time of the call and how long the call lasted. If management believe employees are spending too much time on the phone talking and doing it more often than needed, management can pull a log of those tw...

...inding the suited vehicle which is the closest to the emergency. The vehicle number will be logged and informed of the emergency. Along with the patient information and incident to expect sent to the vehicle, the GPS will provide directions from the current location to the patient and quickest path back to the hospital. The GPS will give the hospital personnel an idea of how long it will take the vehicle to get to the hospital and have equipment, room, and personnel ready to help the patient. By taking the quickest path, along with medical personnel being ready for receiving the patient, could mean the difference of life and death depending on the incident.

In this essay, the author

  • Explains that the hospital needs to improve the tracking of voice over ip (voip) calls within it and wants to have a program that improves response time of medical personnel by using the gps to locate the closes vehicle to the emergency.
  • Explains that the emergency control room wants to improve the tracking of voip calls within the hospital system.
  • Explains that the log will include the information of phone numbers from and to, the time and date of the call and how long it was. policies will need to be put in place on security the phone recordings and logs
  • Explains that the hospital wants to improve the response time of medical personnel to remote locations for an emergency. global position systems (gps) will be included into all emergency vehicles with identification numbers which match up in the database to the type of vehicle.
  • Explains how the system collects the patient's name, the reason to call, phone number, and address, then searches the database to find the type of vehicle which is suited to the emergency.
