Assessment Details:Introduction.Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the number one of death globally: more people dieannually from CVDs than from any other cause.Most CVDs can be prevented by addressing behavioural risk factors such as tobacco use,unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol using populationwide strategies.People with CVD or who are at high cardiovascular risk (due to the presence of one or morerisk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidaemia or already established disease)need early detection and management using counselling and medicines, as appropriate.Page | 3Asia Pacific International College Pty Ltd.

He published a number of research paper in the areaof CVDs.Dr Ben Williams as a physicist and a mathematician whose research interests are bio-medicalstatistics and mathematical models.John and Ben worked together on a Machine Learning project related to processing of ECGtest data for detecting heart diseases. They performed hundreds of electrocardiogram (ECG)tests on patients with CVDs. Analysing ECG tests they came up with a conclusion that someheart diseases with a high probability can be diagnosed using Machine Learning algorithms.ECG graphECG devicesPage | 4Asia Pacific International College Pty Ltd.

They proposed a following business model:• A general practitioner directs a patient to a medical laboratory to do an ECG test• The ECG test is done by qualified medical personnel in a country or a city area.• The test data are sent to a Cloud-based application.• The results are stored in a Cloud database.• The Cloud-based application processes the ECG test data using the Machine Learningalgorithms and produces the result.• If the result shows that the patient might have a heart problem, then this result is sentto an assigned Cardiologist for analysis. The Cardio doctor uploads his/her conclusionback to the Cloud, and it is stored in the database. The report is also sent to thegeneral practitioner.The following diagram represents a high-level application infrastructure.After series of meetings, John and Ben secured a funding for the project involving aninvestor, Arthur Davis, and applying for a government biomedical start-up grant. Mr ArthurDavis has become a business partner. The partners came to a conclusion that the projectduration is one year from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020.Assume that you’ve been appointed as a CardioHealth’s IT Project Manager for theconsulting company: Information System Services (ISS).Page | 5Asia Pacific International College Pty Ltd.

In this assignment you will continue working the CardioHealth project. You will need to producedocuments and diagrams related to a few Project Management Knowledge areas.In this assignment you need to produce the following documents:• Identify project risks breaking them into categories:o Market risk: If the IT project will create a new product or service, will it be useful tothe organization or marketable to others? Will users accept and use the product orservice? Will someone else create a better product or service faster, making theproject a waste of time and money?o Financial risk: Can the organization afford to undertake the project? How confidentare stakeholders in the financial projections? Will the project meet NPV, ROI, andpayback estimates? If not, can the organization afford to continue the project? Isthis project the best way to use the organization’s financial resources?o Technology risk: Is the project technically feasible? Will it use mature, leading-edge,or bleeding-edge technologies? When will decisions be made on which technologyto use? Will hardware, software, and networks function properly? Will thetechnology be available in time to meet project objectives? Could the technology beobsolete before a useful product can be created? You can also break down thetechnology risk category into hardware, software, and network technology, ifdesired.o People risk: Does the organization have people with appropriate skills to completethe project successfully? If not, can the organization find such people? Do peoplehave the proper managerial and technical skills? Do they have enough experience?Does senior management support the project? Is there a project champion? Is theorganization familiar with the sponsor or customer for the project? How good is therelationship with the sponsor or customer?o Structure/process risk: What degree of change will the new project introduce intouser areas and business procedures? How many distinct user groups does theproject need to satisfy? With how many other systems does the new project orsystem need to interact? Does the organization have processes in place to completethe project successfully?Page | 8Asia Pacific International College Pty Ltd.
