Grant Proposal: The integration of service and communication in the Health sector.
The medical community is a sector that quickly embraces significant data advancement, but implementation tends to be rough. Non-associated databases combine patient information from various sources by providing actionable metrics (Berg, 2014). The aim of the paper is to discuss on problem of integration of service and communication in the health sector and propose a recommendation.
During the old times, healthcare providers relied on relational records to access and store patient information. Nevertheless, the relational databases failed because they could not manage unstructured data, including transcripts and clinical notes, effectively. Only a small number of healthcare practitioners had the technical knowledge on data transcription from personal to non-relational databases using traditional electronic medical records.
The majority of the organizations effectively implementing the non-relational medical records are large and have vast financial resources. The benefit of the non-relational databases is that they can fully exploit the received patient information regardless of their format. The technology assists healthcare providers in identifying traits that were lost after they were recorded or until they have been reviewed individually. This makes the process expensive, and therefore only the well-up institutions can afford the technology.
Concerning this, the process of encouraging patients to share their medical information is becoming critical, with some patients becoming reluctant to share their information with caregivers, including the drug manufacturers. This is making even the health facilities that have implemented the non-relational databases continue to worry if they will be able to secure their patient’s information as promised.
Due to the absence of adequate information from the clients, the health sector is wasting valuable resources on research and development, which is passed on to consumers as tax and increase in healthcare costs burdens (Kinder, & Burgoyne, 2013).
Therefore, my grant proposal for the problem is for health sector to come up with strategies to educate patients on the necessity of information sharing with them by establishing more personalized and customizable information sharing plans.

1.The theory of Diffusion of Innovation (DOI) that originate from communication to illustrate the way the idea or product gain momentum and spread to other people easily. The integration of service and communication in the health sector brings together different parts of health and social care to provide a relevant way of sharing information and avoid some of the communication confusion that arises in the facility (Elrod & Fortenberry, 2020). The integration of services and communication in the health sectors is beneficial because the services are made accessible easily and create a good understanding and use of information leading to overall good patient health. The theory of Diffusion of Innovation is important in this project because it suggests how the idea will spread to more people and be adapted by many.
2. The theory that I will use is Diffusion of Innovation. It was developed by E.M. Rogers and it was used to study that the adaption of new ideas, products, or behavior does not happen at once but requires process and plan. This theory indicates that the adaption of new ideas, products, or behavior does not happen at once but requires process and plan. As applied to my study, this theory holds that I would expect my independent variable will help in holding to the variable of health care to influence or explain the dependent variable the use of integration of service and communication (Kaminski, 2011) because the theory will help my project implementation because it gives guidance on the benefit of integrating service and communication in health sectors.
