Incomplaint-push model, data is downloaded through asynchronous bindoperation, and the client is notified when new data is available. Thedata-pull model involves downloading of data as requested.Complaint-push model is more effective because the client chooses toread the data at any point during the bind operation (Taylor et al,2005). For data-pull model, the bind operation may fail if the clientfails to complete reading the data during the bind operation.

Complexhealth care system causes significant barriers to HIT. One of theaspects of such a complex health care system is increasing populationand inflation costs in the health care system. Higher populations ofpatients in health care facilities can cause health professionals toprovide low quality services (Taylor et al, 2005). This barrier canbe minimized by providing an effective connectivity of EMR to reduceredundancies and improve coordination and safety of health careproviders to improve quality of services.

Aspecific model of HIT can be used to enhance effective and efficientdisease management and prevention process among aging populations.The use of HIT can improve cost savings in the prevention andmanagement of diseases in the health care system because throughtransaction efficiencies (Tayloret al, 2005).For example, HIT can be used to store data containing patient historyand treatment plans in a more innovative ways to reduce the costs ofsearching patient information when needed.

Theimplementation of HIMS in a complex adaptive system is faced bybarriers such as resistance from clinical staff, insufficientfinancial resources, and lack of knowledge and skills. If clinicalstaff members are used to CAS, they resist new changes to HIMS(Tayloret al, 2005).Implementation of HIMS also requires financial resources, andknowledge and skills of IT professionals. The resistance fromclinical staff can be overcome by using effective changecommunication mechanisms (Tayloret al, 2005).The leaders or health care administrators should communicate theimportance of the changes to clinical staff to win their support.
