System implementation covers a broad spectrum of activities from a detailed workflow analysis to the formal go-live of the new system. During system implementation, health centers may refine the initial workflow analysis that had been completed as part of the requirements analysis phase. With the aid of the vendor, health centers may also start mapping out the new proposed workflow.
The system implementation phase requires the vendor to play a very prominent role. In addition to the workflow analysis, full system testing is completed during this phase. Other key activities that would occur include piloting of the new system, the formal go-live, and the resolution of application issues during the post implementation period.
