Database Models Paper
Prior to beginning work on this assignment, read Chapters 1, 2, and 3 in the text. Review the instructions below and research two additional scholarly, peer-reviewed, or credible professional sources to support your statements.
The health informatics field involves the collection and management of large amounts of data that is stored and maintained in complex database systems. There are many ways that data can be represented in a database, including the entity-relationship model described in Chapter 2 of your text. For this assignment, you will write a paper that compares and contrasts three database models and explains how each model is designed and is typically used. To complete the assignment, you will create a simple diagram of each database model you selected.
The following must be included in your paper:
Choose three different database models and analyze how each model is structured as well as how it stores and processes data.
Describe the most common uses for each database model you chose, explaining the key differences between each.
Explain whether each model is best suited for use in information systems or communications systems.
Create a simple diagram of each database model you selected. (This may be done using WordArt (Links to an external site.) in your word document, in the mind mapping software of your choice such as Bubbl.us (Links to an external site.) or Mindmeister.com (Links to an external site.), or with a hand-drawn diagram. If you choose to use mind mapping software or a hand-drawn diagram, be sure to include a clear image within your document.)
