While an artist would rarely approach her audience and ask what they hope to see in her next creation, this is exactly what a database designer must do. To ensure that a database meets the needs of the organization and its users, designers communicate with users and other stakeholders to capture the vision of what is needed. This means that important stakeholders—nurses in particular—can make a significant impact on database design when they articulate to designers what is needed regarding the storage, search, and retrieval of healthcare data. Productive dialogue will help lead to the development of appropriate data types, relational tables, and other design elements. Such dialogue relies on the ability to effectively articulate database design. In this Discussion, you practice refining a database design by examining key design attributes and employing feedback from peers.
