Health plans prepare edge servers for HIX 


I just jooined an Insurance Company as a Business System Analyst. I am new in the field so I seek an advice from experts here. Most of you will be aware that health plans have to set up edge servers for data sharing with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. I have been given the responsibility to gather requirements, prepare BRD and FRD for this project. As this is my first project as a Business Analyst, I am very confused on how to start on this. Please help me.....

Re: Health plans prepare edge servers for HIX 

So what does an edge server have to do with Business Analysis?     My suggestion:  Don't fall into the very common trap of analyzing how things are done vs what, from a business persepective, is done.  After all, you are charged with developing a BRD.

Try to, in as top down, up front fashion as possible scope out the extent of your project:  Research Context Diagrams.    Note:  In order to create a Context Diagram, you probably need to create some lower level diagrams first and then abstract from them a Context Diagram.

Move fast; don't spend time drawing pretty pictures on a computer.  Quickly pencil up some rough flow charts of what you think is happending - from a business perspective.  Then meet  with the end-user community, and have them point out your errors in understanding.    Then quickly do another iteration.
