Transcript: Investigation/observations: Asking questions about the data, interpretation of findings. Does the data answer hypothesis or infer an incorrect prediction? Inspiration to form new testable questions can be found from your findings. Challenging existing procedures advances Science. Conclusion/outcome: simply....... Communication/feedback: Analyze results, support or challenge a hypothesis, form new testable questions with different variables. Testing Ideas/theories: Flow Chart Project by Maxwell Cattermole New data can answer curiosity, build knowledge, solve problems, inform people, and address issues but most importantly it can raise new questions. It is through new scientific discoveries that the world around us advances. Gathering Data: First you make a question. Then you make your hypothesis (testable idea), predictions, then you gather your materials, all of which should be noted. (So if you have to change something, like a measurement) you can tell which material to use. All stages of the experiment have to be accurately observed and recorded so it can either be repeated if successful or changed if necessary. For instance in an experiment to test drive a car think of all the variables! For example tire wear, driving line, hp, power to weight ratio, amount of fuel, type of fuel, driver experience, size of car and engine size. Interpreting data/analysis This is one of the most important parts of science, this is where you share all of your data, research, evidence and see if it is well received, maybe even publish it if it is good enough. Use feedback to change/advance your experiment. News breaking scientific discovery is usually published in magazines, for example Nature; New Scientist and Science, rather than books. This is because science is constantly changing and by the time books are published, the discovery might be outdated. Scientific journals such as Nature are published weekly.

Describe the action happening in the symbols in detail; keep it clear and understandable 4. Follow the flow 5. Following the process, create a useful conclusion -1921: First explained by Frank Gilbreth in in a presentation called "Process Charts-First steps in finding the one best way" -1930s: Allan H. Mogensen trained some business people for some of these tools -1947: ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) adopted symbol set from Gilbreth's original idea -1970's: Flowchart use decreased because of computer terminals and programming languages Flow chart should be easy to follow and not messy. Represented as a parallelogram Video History of Flowcharts Flowchart Best Practices Uneven flowchart symbol sizes: Ovals or rounded rectangles; contains the word 'Start' or 'end', or other phrases indicating the start or end of a process Be Concise, not Copious: Inconsistent flow direction: -Input/Output: When drawing flow chart everything has to be in proper order. Most common mistakes. . The flowchart's message to get lost in a sea of visual noise. Common Mistakes Made when Drawing Flowcharts When possible, make your flowchart symbols the same height and width. -Start/End Symbols: Keep it simple and be logical Show flow of control from one symbol to another 1. Have the boundaries labeled properly as "start" and "end" 2. Finish the big picture by adding symbols (processing, decision, input/output, etc.) -Conditional/ Decision: Flowchart Symbols Meaning Clarity is Paramount: Too many colors: -Processing steps Standard for Flow Lines: Diamond/Rhombus, contain yes/no question or true/false test; two arrows extending out of it into direction of yes/true, or no/false Keep it short Flowchart Templates/Examples -Arrows Flowchart Templates/ Examples A flowchart contains a loop back that can lead to an infinite loop. Stick to Right Direction: No Arrow Pointers: How to draw a Flowchart Infinite loops: It should be top to bottom or left to right and consistent flow direction. Proper Form is Essential: Represented as rectangles; ex. "Add 1 to X" Logic precedes Everything:

Transcript: Auto Refills Online OTC This idea was generally well received, although less popular with current RightSource users under age 65. Generally envisioned as a text chat feature, the live pharmacist was particularly appealing among older Members concerned with drug interactions and those with children. Although most desired this to be a 24/7 service, most respondents stated they would be satisfied with extended hours. Online Mail The process began at the doctor's office when the patient received a new prescription. In most cases, the doctor was responsible for faxing in the prescription to RightSource or retail pharmacy. The Doctor's Office The Retail Pharmacy Phone Live Pharmacist This tool also generated considerable interest. Among current users, they expressed that it was similar to the refill alerts they were already getting over the phone and would love to have the extra step of inputting personal information removed from the process. Among non-users, this was viewed as an advantage of switching their medications to RightSource, as well as easing some of the hesitation of the longer shipping times associated with a mail order pharmacy. New RightSource Tools Refilling with RightSource Among current RightSource users, having the ability to order OTC medications online appears to be a way to move more customers into using the online system, particularly with the under 65 segment that is currently still using the automated phone system for refills. While this idea was appealing for non-users, cost competitiveness would be key for obtaining new customers. As one respondent put it, RightSource would have to "beat the Wal-Mart price." Members were most interested in purchasing allergy medications that are not prescription but are taken like maintenance medications, such as Allegra. RightSource was viewed as a viable option for long-term, maintenance prescriptions. A common example was blood pressure medication. The primary appeal of RightSource was the offer of 90-day supplies, so a monthly trip to the pharmacy was not needed. Many members also saved money with RightSource, as several people stated that Humana did not charge a copay for many medications filled with RightSource. Many Members were using the RightSource website for refills. Benefits of using the website included the visual element of seeing what you were typing, immediate order confirmation, price quotes, as well as it being a faster process in general. A few members expressed difficulty accessing the website, and others mentioned that the information could be better organized (such as removing old medications from their profile). Even among those who did not regularly access the website, awareness was high. The main reasons for non-use were discomfort with inputting personal information on the web, as well as discomfort with technology more broadly. This was especially true for users who were over 65. Very few people mailed in prescriptions. It was never mentioned as a method for refilling. Some of those whose doctor did not fax in their prescriptions had to mail them into RightSource for the initial fill. Mail was viewed as adding additional shipping time, as well as adding additional cost for postage. Many also perceived the mail as involving additional steps that increased the chance of their order being lost. RightSource could implement an alternate method of receiving initial prescriptions and possibly eliminate the mail-in option altogether. RightSource The phone was the most common and preferred method of refilling, even among those who were technologically savvy. Despite being the most common method, several Members expressed dissatisfaction with the automated line. RightSource could improve this system by offering fewer menu options, requiring less information to be input, and making it easier to speak to a live representative. This would be especially helpful for caregivers, as this group expressed the most difficultly in having to enter other's information. For RightSource users, retail pharmacies were used in the case of immediate need for a prescription, such as illness or emergencies. The shipping time inherent with mail order prevented users from sending these types of prescriptions into RightSource. RightSource has an opportunity to begin receiving these types of orders if overnight shipping was an option, even if this incurred an additional cost to the Member's account. Scan and Picture Applications Overall, the scan was preferred to the picture because it was viewed as being more accurate and secure. Many respondents, especially the current users over age 65, did not have this technology and most had no interest in buying either a smartphone or tablet. Particularly among the older Members, there was some hesitation with the use of this technology. However, among the more tech savvy respondents, the scan application was viewed as a fast, easy, secure way to refill prescriptions with RightSource.
