The hospital does not provide any information to the patients about the delivery of their scans and about the period of wait. In the long wait, much confusion is developed by the patients and some patients become worried and the others become more optimistic about the condition of their health.

The patients suffer because of unavailable information. They make up their own judgments resulting from the environment and the hints from their GP. Some patients get too worried and others develop a more optimistic thought. All the patients agree that receiving information on time will solve many of their difficulties.
Systemic thinking indicates that everything is interrelated and all the events in the world can only be understood if they are seen as a whole. It considers the system to be a mix of interactions and actions and a structured unit with a function. On the other hand, systematic thinking is the belief that the things can be better understood if they are broken down into simpler components. Systematic thinking states that if things are studied in isolation, without interdependencies, the things become less complex. Once the wholes are broken into smaller, more manageable parts, understanding becomes pretty much possible. Whereas systemic thinking argues that if wholes are broken down, the understanding of the whole is not possible anymore because of the absence of interrelation.
The focus of systemic thinking is more on the linkages and the interactions among the elements of a system. By taking a holistic view of the entire system, the system can be understood and the problems can be addresses. The focus of the
